#MissUniverse2015 is trending on Twitter today. Is it because everyone is a huge fan of that beauty pageant? Probably not. It’s most likely due to a hilarious and viral mistake made by this year’s host of the show, Steve Harvey.
Steve Harvey read the card wrong and announced that Miss Colombia was the winner, when in fact, she was only the first runner-up. However, he didn’t realise his mistake soon enough and the beautiful Miss Colombia joyfully went to get the crown and have her moment of victory. What happened soon afterwards was hilarious and incredibly awkward for everyone involved.
Steve Harvey went on stage and apologized for his mistake. He said “I have to apologize. The first runner up is Colombia. Miss Universe 2015 is Philippines. 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 the right thing, I can show it to you right here, the first runner-up is Colombia. It’s my mistake. Still a great night.” Miss Colombia did not look amused. She had the crown hastily taken away from her and Miss Philippines was crowned. Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, looked very confused, but also happy with the surprise.
Both Miss Philippines and Miss Colombia were shocked but tried their best to keep their pageant faces on, looking happy and smiling. What other way could they possibly react? It was a huge shock to everyone, and the biggest blunder he could have made. Steve Harvey later tweeted his apologies again.
Fans of the show have been tweeting non-stop. Some thought it was hilarious, while others were saying that Miss Philippines was robbed of her moment of victory. What are your thoughts on this awkward, once-in-a-lifetime moment?
