Steve Harvey just made the biggest mistake of his hosting career when he announced the wrong winner for the Miss Universe 2015 pageant as the Miss Universe 2015 host. The “Family Feud” host first declared Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez as the winner when, in fact, the card shows Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, as the ultimate winner.
Considered as one of the hardest working men in show business, Steve Harvey, host of “The Steve Harvey Show” and “Family Feud,” took to Twitter and revealed that he had been declared the official host for the Miss Universe 2015 pageant last December 12, 2015, reported Black Enterprise.
During the event, Harvey was said to have brought his controversial sense of humor when he claimed that he needed to see the women in their bikinis again. According to Bustle, the side comment was inappropriate.
When it was time to hail the winner for the pageant, Harvey announced firsthand that Miss Colombia had won, only to find out that the teleprompter informed him the wrong results, reported USA Today. Shortly after Miss Colombia was crowned, the host approached the platform and apologized. He then admitted that, in fact, Miss Philippines was the sole winner and that Miss Colombia only landed 1st runner up! See the video here: Morning News USA.
Shortly thereafter, the crown was taken away from Miss Colombia including the sash, and was placed on to the rightful winner, Miss Philippines’ Wurtzbach.
To make matters worse, Harvey took to Twitter and stated, “I want to apologize emphatically to Miss Philippians and Miss Columbia. This was a terribly honest human mistake and I am so regretful.” Harvey misspelled both nations: Philippians instead of Philippines, and Columbia instead of Colombia. The host subsequently deleted the post and replaced it with.
I'd like to apologize wholeheartedly to Miss Colombia & Miss Philippines for my huge mistake. I feel terrible.
