There’s a new Miss Universe Puerto Rico after this year’s title holder got her crown stripped.

She just wasn’t a good fit, according to Desiree Lowry, an organizer of the Puerto Rico franchise of Miss Universe.

There were several incidents during the four-month reign of Kristhielee Caride, but the final straw was what she told the national media.

“When I’m listening and she says, ‘I don’t like the camera,’ I say that is a big problem,” Lowry said at a Thursday news conference. “Miss Puerto Rico is a public figure and part of your job is to be in front of the camera.”

Caride said she will learn from her mistakes.

“It is human to err, also it’s the valiant who remember their errors and want to move forward being the example of a real woman, holding the head high before all adversity that happens in life,” she said on Facebook. “I will always have the memory of that night, November 12, where I won the title and all the experiences and beautiful memories that I have had as Miss Universe Puerto Rico 2016.”

Puerto Rico’s new Miss Universe for the rest of the year is Brenda Jimenez.

But beware, Jimenez. Heavy is the head that wears the crown.
