Steve Harvey's Miss Universe Flub Created Drama Out Of Thin Air

December 21, 2015 2 min read

For people outside the pageant world, there exists a certain level of mystery. What really goes on behind the scenes? Are the women actually friendly with each other? Is the winner of the congeniality award actually congenial? When you pull back the curtains and take a deeper look do you get Real Housewives style cat fights? Not likely, but it is fun to imagine. Getting to be "First Runner Up" has to hurt a little. When it gets down to two, it is such a tense moment. Both women have survived the night. They did not trip on their gowns or mangle their interview answers. The talent portion went off without a hitch. It all, at that point lies in the hands of the judges. Or, as the 2015 Miss Universe contest saw, in the hands of the host. When announcing the winner on Sunday night, host Steve Harvey, made a tremendous mistake. He announced the winner as Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez Arevalo, when in fact she was the first runner up. Miss Philippines, Pia Wurtzbach, was the rightful winner. Have a look. You can cut the awkwardness with a knife! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCdiJM_attw In an instant, emotions completely reversed for both ladies. But the question we have is, did it have to end this way? When you are down to the final two, both candidates are worthy. It was likely some random, arbitrary factor that pushed Miss Philippines ahead of Miss Colombia. We are certain that is is not how Wurtzbach envisioned winning this pageant. As thrilled as she no doubt is, she probably didn't want to do it like this. And is this really how someone should lose the title? She was thrilled, then instantaneously confused and mortified, all because someone made a mistake! An honest to goodness error. We think that both women should have been allowed to retain the title. Why must there only be one Miss Universe? The Miss Universe winner travels the world doing and promoting good works. We don't see any reason why that role couldn't be enhanced by having two women hold the title. What do you think? Is what happened fair or should both women have been allowed to hold the title?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
