A fairy tale turned into a nightmare for one contestant at the Miss Universe Canada pageant.

Denise Garrido, 26, from Ontario was jubilant after she was crowned the new Miss Universe Canada Saturday.

The next day, she was stripped of her crown. It was awarded to the real winner, Riza Santos, 26, of Calgary. Organizers say a typo caused a miscount.

Garrido says she has no hard feelings.
