Zuleyka Rivera of Puerto Rico was crowned as the 55th Miss Universe queen on July 23, 2006 in Los Angeles, California, USA! Our Throwback Thursday picture today involves Zuleyka minutes after she won the title…
Here, you will see a staff carrying Zuleyka after she fainted while still on stage minutes after her coronation. She recovered soon enough and explained that she fainted because of the heat in the auditorium, the tightness and weight of her dress which was made out of metal chains, the effects of the lights and the emotional rush of her win.
Really good thing that she recovered!!!
