HOLY AWKWARD VIDEO! Steve Harvey Announces Wrong Miss Universe Winner, Has To Backtrack And Rename The Winner

Miss PhillipinesTalk about a nightmare! Sunday night, Miss Universe 2015 host Steve Harvey accidentally named Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez as the evening’s top winner…even sending her off to walk and wave to the crowd!
Just one problem… she was really the first runner-up.

Apologize“I have to apologize,” Harvey said, looking uncomfortable after walking back onstage, “The first runner-up is Colombia.”

And so, a confused, bewildered Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach, who’d previously been named first runner-up, came to the realization that she was actually the new beauty queen.

And with that, both Miss Colombia and Miss Philippines are the most sought after Miss Universe interviews in the history of the event, and despite a lot of awkwardness and tears right now, could potentially become more famous than they had if the show had gone off without a hitch…

  1. I hope that everyone call learn from the gracious reactions of both of these women! Usually we would see outrage and complaining. But because of their example — most people are seeming to react with forgiveness and grace in return! Of course I haven’t read all of the tweets and comments … but I can only hope!

  2. My heart goes out to Miss Columbia….awkward!!!!
