Spanish medias and a lot of Miss Universe fans described Gabriela Isler's victory as unfair. Indeed venezuela has won Miss Universe 7 times (1979, 1981, 1986, 1996, 2008, 2009) 'la séptima corona' as venezuelan said, we can notice that it was very recently, 2008 and 2009 with Dayana Mendoza, Stefania Fernandez and THE first back to back in the competition. 2013 was finally the year of Europe ? Hum...NO. But we believed with the gorgeous Miss Spain Patricia Rodriguez -last european winner was Mona Grudt from Norway in 1990- Patricia and Gabriela were really friends during the competition (and also roomies in Moscow) Patricia clarified the situation and silence critics "happy, then hand finished with the one I helped with that gave me more affection."
