A Brazilian beauty pageant took a bizarre turn when the first runner-up snatched the crown off the winner of the Miss Amazon contest, refusing to accept her loss.

Sheislane Hayalla is justifying her reaction by claiming her rival, Carol Toledo, bought the title.

The winner of Miss Amazon represents the jungle state in the national Miss Brazil contest. It was unclear whether Ms Hayalla would keep her status as Miss Amazon first runner-up.

At the crowning ceremony late on Friday, Ms Hayalla initially hugged her opponent as the winner’s name was announced.

Seconds later, as a woman adjusted the crown onto Ms Toledo’s hair,Ms Hayalla stepped forward to snatch the tiara violently from her head and throw it onto the stage before storming away.
