Philippines wins Miss Universe, but host messes up big time
Usually its the winner of the Miss Universe pageant that will be the hot topic of the day right after the competition, however this time the host, Steve Harvey takes the cake.
When the moment everyone was waiting for with bated breaths, Steve Harvey had wrongfully declared Miss Columbia the winner when she was actually the first runner-up.
The winner was actually Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach from Philippines.
The blunder went so far as to Miss Columbia's Ariadna Gutierrez being crowned as the winner, putting on the crowd and waving the Colombian flag while blowing kisses at the audience.
When he realised his colossal mistake, Harvey took to the crowded Las Vegas stage and apologised.
"OK folks... I have to apologize. Let me 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."
The crown was taken off Miss Columbia and was instead given to Miss Philippines.
