Linette De Los Santos was the runner-up in the contest and is now the reigning queen, thanks to a makeup debacle.

De Los Santos spoke to Inside Edition with the pageant director Gary Gavitt, and said of Davila: “She's a smart girl and she's a nice girl, but at the end of the day she made an unfortunate choice.”

Gavitt added: "She sought an unfair advantage and was caught."
