Steve Harvey mistakenly announced Ariadna Gutiérrez from Colombia as the winner of Miss Universe 2015. Moments later, he realized his mistake, corrected himself by announcing that the real winner was Pia Wurtzbach from the Philippines. Harvey immediately took responsibility for the mistake.
Miss Colombia’s tiara (crown) was unceremoniously removed and given to Miss Philippines. (on the right). This image shows the tiara being removed from Miss Colombia.
Harvey looks forward to sometime in the future to be able to clear the air on the infamous “Miss Universe 2015 Pageant disaster”.
However, Steve Harvey later took to twitter to render his apology.
Harvey finally got the chance to speak about the incident and he said that he could not even sleep in the night after that incident took place and he commended his wife for consoling him throughout. He said he could not imaging how tough it was for the women involved. In his own words:
“No matter how tough it was for me, I can’t imagine how it was for these two women,” Harvey said. “This finally gives me a chance to have a moment of closure.”
Harvey became more relaxed when the real Miss Universe, Pia Wurtzbach, finally told him to forget about it, be happy and move forward.
