Blondes may or may not have more fun, but they do seem to have better luck holding onto their tiaras.

Just ask 15-year-old Olivia O'Neil, the New Zealand beauty queen who was just stripped of her Miss Teen Wanganui crown because she dyed her blonde-streaked locks dark brown, the New Zealand Herald reports.

That must have been one bad dye job.

It all kicked off when pageant organizer Barbara Osborne reportedly saw online photos of the Kiwi cutie with the darker do three months after she won the pageant, according to the paper.

"Is that a wig?" Osborne reportedly asked. "I hope it is. Don't give me heart failure."

O'Neil reportedly responded that the hair color was real, and if that was an issue, perhaps she wasn't cut out for pageantry.

"Well, you better decide, Miss," Osborne said. "Hand over your crown with an attitude like that. I'm sure someone will step into your place with manners."

Meow! When O'Neil turned in her crown, Osborne allegedly told her she "would not go far in this world," the paper reports.

"She was always really harsh on the girls," O'Neil tells the Herald.

"And when she says things like, 'Present yourself better,' 'Wear lots of makeup,' 'Do 20 sit-ups,' it gets to you after a while."

Though the pageant claims Osborne is no longer involved with the organization, spokesman Jevan Goulter confirmed that O'Neil's brown locks did her in.

"The expectation in holding the crown [was] that she maintain the image she had when she won it," he said.

There, there, Olivia. If this is what your neighbor Miss Australia has to wear, we say you got a lucky escape!
