TV Disaster Of The Year! Steve Harvey Wrongly Announces Miss Columbia As Winner Of Miss Universe, Contestant Had To Take Off Crown For Real Winner Miss Phillipines (Photos)

Mis Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzach was wide-eyed and frozen after Harvey first revealed his slip-up and she realized exactly what that meant for her


Comedian Steve Harvey yesterday featured in one of the worst TV moments of the year just as 2015 wraps up.

The ‘Think like a man’ author while hosting the Miss Universe pageant Sunday night in Las Vegas, called out Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez as the winner of the Miss Universe 2015 competition on LIVE television. But to the horror of the crowd and TV viewers around the world,  the crown had to be removed from the head of Miss Colombia and given to the real winner Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach.

See photos and video below:

After they made it to the top three spots Harvey revealed to the women that their fellow competitors were going to help decide who would be named Miss Universe 2015


Just as Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez was blowing kisses and waving to her adoring fans she was informed, on live television, that host Steve Harvey had read the results wrong

It was actually Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach who had taken the crown, and Gutierrez had to bend down and allow Former Miss Universe Paulina Vega to remove it from her head on live television

The crown was then placed on Wurtzbach’s head and the telecast abruptly came to an end, before she was allowed a victory lap

Fellow contestants flocked to congratulate Wurtzbach after she was revealed to be the true winner of the pageant

And others rushed to comfort Gutierrez after the cameras shut off and the mistake settled in

She and Vega had first rushed to embrace each other when it was believed Colombia would remain the reigning Miss Universe

The embarrassed host even showed the results card to the camera to prove that it had truly been his own personal mistake


Steve after the colossal mistake then went to Twitter to apologise:

Steve is one comedian/actor I respect a lot and I think it was a honest mistake albeit costly. Hopefully he is not fined, or sued or anything like that.

    That’s what you get for making a comedian the anchor of a show…. Lol

    On a serious note, I concur with Moji’s statement, no one and I mean absolutely no one is above mistake, nobody is perfect.

    And Jehovah felt regrets he had made man in the earth, he felt hurt in His heart. So Jehovah said: ” I am going to wipe men whom I have created off the surface of the ground, from men to domestic animal, even moving animal and to flying creatures of the heaven, because I do regret that I have made them, but Noah found favor in the eyes of Jehovah”…
    – Gen 6:6-8
