O Que Quer Dizer “Runner-Up”?

miss universe fail

OMG! Você viu o que aconteceu no concurso Miss Universo ontem?

O apresentador errou e disse que a Miss Colômbia tinha ganhado, mas na verdade quem ganhou foi a Miss Filipinas.

Ele diz que a primeira runner-up era a Miss Filipinas. Mas o que quer dizer runner-up?

De acordo com o dicionário Macmillan, a runner-up is a person or team that does not win a competition or race but is second, or is close to winning, ou seja, alguém ou uma equipe que não vence uma competição ou corrida, mas fica em segundo lugar ou perto de ganhar.

Então o correto foi que a Miss Colômbia era a runner-up (o segundo lugar). Dá uma olhada no epic fail do apresentador!
