Watch as Miss Universe 2015 was announced wrongly.
Miss Universe 2015 Winner Update: It started with lots of predictions and peaked at each country’s massive support for their contenders. What appeared to be a yearly tradition of passing of crowns became one of the most controversial crowning moment in television history.
As Miss USA walked off the center stage with the third spot, Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez, and Miss Philippines, Pia Wurtzbach, held hands as they waited for the final announcement.
Then, the host, Steve Harvey, announced the name of the winner, which was a bit weird to start off because they normally announce the second place first.
As he said “Miss Colombia” the crowd went crazy, and the crown was passed on by last year’s winner, another Miss Colombia, and Miss Philippines left the limelight.
Then the unpredictable happened. As Miss Colombia celebrated her moment, Harvey once again came up the stage to apologize.
“Folks, I have to apologize,” he said, and the crowd froze in confused silence. Pan to Miss Philippines, who was celebrating her top 2 moment away from the crowd already.
Then Miss Philippines was announced the winner, much to the surprise of all, not because she was undeserving but because Miss Colombia already did her ceremonial waves and spiritual thank you’s.
The host further said:
“This is exactly what’s on the cards. I will take responsibility for this. It was my mistake. It was on the card. Horrible mistake, but the writing, I can show it to you, right here. The first runner-up is Miss Colombia. Still a great night. Please don’t hold it against the ladies. Please don’t. I feel so badly. Still a great night. Good night.”
