Colombia is in an intermittent position in beauty pageantry. However, once that they send a stunner, expect that they always give a good standing. This happened in 2008 when Taliana Vargas became a favorite, generating numerous positive comments by beauty pageant fans. However, Venezuela emerged as the winning candidate after a small decimal point difference with Taliana. The most heartbreaking moment was in 2015 when Ariadna Gutierrez was mistakenly announced as the winner by Steve Harvey. The real winner during that time was Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach from the Philippines. In 2017, Laura Gonzalez also made it to the first runner-up position during the conclusion of the pageant in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Overall, Colombia is a dark horse in the world of beauty pageantry. This country is silently penetrating the top position to win that happens from time to time. The country manages to place in the top 3 for four consecutive years since Paulina Vega won in 2014. Ariadna made a close finish in 2015 as the 5th Colombian first runner-up. Andrea Tovar placed as the second runner-up when the pageant was held in the Philippines. Laura Gonzalez managed to become the 6th woman during the latest edition of Miss Universe that was held in Las Vegas, USA.
