THIS is the awkward moment a Miss Universe Spain contestant fell into a pool while trying to impress the judges.
Pilar Magro attempts an elegant pool-side twirl but the effect is ruined when she spins herself off the edge and into the water, disappearing under the surface with a shriek.
A lifeguard immediately dives in to help her get to the side and the only thing injured looks to be her pride.
After getting herself together, Pilar, representing Caceres, takes off her shoes and swims over to the pool’s steps.
She is encouraged by her fellow contestants, including Miss Malaga, who can be seen cheering her on in red.
The humiliating gaffe may have cost Pilar the title, as it was eventually given to Sofia del Prado of Castilla La Mancha.
New Miss Universe Spain Miss del Prado will now go on to represent her country in the Miss Universe competition, where Iris Mittanaere will hand over her crown.
