Steve Harvey announced that the Winner is Miss Colombia! The crown was placed on her head and she strutted around for 5 minutes…. then Steve Harvey said he made a mistake and the real winner is actually Miss Philippines!!
The crown was removed. He showed the card that he misread and admitted the blame. The camera never showed Miss Colombia’s face during the error. Everyone was shocked
Yes!, this happened in the live telecast of Miss Universe Beauty Pageant, Sunday night. That must have been a nightmare for the Miss Columbia as her triumphal music lasted for only a couple of minutes. And for, Steve Harvey it was a forgettable night of his career.
Later, Steve Harvey apologised for his honest human mistake.
I made a terrible mistake tonight in announcing the wrong winner and runner-up for the Miss Universe pageant. I know how much pride many countries, fans and most importantly, the contestants take in preparing for this night. I hope that you can forgive me.
All contestants were amazing but I want to specifically apologize to Miss Colombia and Miss Philippines again and wholeheartedly. You both represented well for your countries, families and yourselves.
