Beauty Queen Ingrid Marie Rivera Coated In Pepper Spray

AS reported: “Just moments after beauty queen Ingrid Marie Rivera beat 29 rivals to become the island’s Miss Universe contestant, she suffered an allergic reaction and broke out in hives.”


It turned out that Miss Rivera’s evening gowns and makeup had been secretly doused with pepper spray.

Miss Rivera started feeling the prickly heat during the competition, but managed to maintain her trademark composure before the judges and cameras throughout the competition.

But when backstage during costume changes, the queen-to-be had to strip off her clothes and apply ice bags to her face and body, which swelled and broke out in a raw rash twice.

“We thought at first it was an allergic reaction, or maybe nerves,” pageant spokesman Harold Rosario said. “But the second time, we knew it couldn’t have been a coincidence.”

And then ALL her clothes fell off…

Says Rivera: “At one point I said, ‘Am I a masochist? But I said, ‘I am with God and this is my goal, regardless of the results”‘SourceĀ
