3. Miss Colombia might be doing three different endorsements where she gets her “crown”

So Pia was right: More opportunities will come for Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez Arevalo after all. We’re not talking about that infamous offer to do porn—the woman isn’t taking that. But it looks like Arevalo and her manager, Luis Balaguer, are in talks with Burger King for a commercial “where everyone keeps their crown.” A Corona (which means “crown” is Spanish) commercial with Arevalo is also a possibility. It doesn’t stop there. We heard Miss Colombia’s dream is to become a Victoria’s Secret Angel, and there are rumors that say Balaguer was in touch with the company recently. Maybe Miss Colombia will get to wear a crown along with wings on a runway next year?
