Miss Universe mistake: Wrong Contestant Crowned At Miss Universe Paegent
Steve Harvey made a mistake during the Miss Universe 2015 Pageant. He stated that Miss Colombia was Miss Universe when Miss Philippines was the real winner. Miss Colombia enjoyed her reign for a few minutes before Steve Harvey announced that there had been a mistake.
Steve Harvey stated that he takes full responsibility for the mistake, and the correct winner’s name was on the card. A few minutes before, Miss Colombia Arianda was waving the Colombia flag, smiling and blowing kisses to the audience. When Steve walked up to the ladies, they both appeared as they did not know what they should do next.
Arianda walked up to the front of the stage, and the crown was taken off her head. The crown was placed on the head of Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, who was Miss Phillipines. Steve Harvey apologized for the mistake again on his Twitter account. However, he made another mistake. He misspelled both the Philippines and Colombia in his tweet. He later deleted the tweet.
Steve Harvey also stated that he did not want to take anything away from the contestants, and it had been a wonderful night. Additionally, Steve said that all of the contestants in the pageant were amazing.
While the moment may have ended hours ago already, we fear the Internet may not forget the Miss Universe mistake… for a long long time!
