The Miss Universe pageant of 2015 was aired on television on Sunday night as a treat for the public. Much to the surprise of all present, the host Steve Harris first announced that Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez had won the title however after she had taken her first walk as the new Miss Universe, Harvey apologized that he had misread the card.
Colombia contestant Ariadna Gutierrez Arevalo was already wearing the crown as this year’s Miss Universe winner when host Steve Harvey returned to apologize.
I have to apologize. The first runner-up is Colombia.
He announced once again that Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, was the actual winner.
This lead to a lot of chaos and confusion on sets. The Miss Universe Pageantry is supposedly one of the greatest events in terms of beauty and such a goof up on stage is of course surprising and surreal isn’t it?
Harvey apologized on stage.
‘Listen folks, let me just take control of this. This is exactly what’s on the card. I will take responsibility for this. It was my mistake. It was on the card. Horrible mistake… but I can show it to you right here. It was my mistake. Still a great night. Please don’t hold it against the ladies. We feel so badly, but it’s still a great night.’
