Steve Harvey Announced The Wrong Winner at Miss Universe

The Miss Universe pageant which took place at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas took a sticky turn when the host Steve Harvey mistakenly announced Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez as the winner instead of Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach the pageant winner. 

Harvey surprised everybody when he said “Okay, folks, I have to apologize. The first runner-up is Colombia.” He then announced Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach as the pageant winner who at that moment looked shocked.

Harvey then said “This is exactly what’s on the card,” holding the card up, “I will take responsibility for this. It was my mistake. It was on the card. Please don’t hold it against the ladies.”
Harvey later went on twitter to apologize for his mistake saying
 “I’d like to apologize wholeheartedly to Miss Colombia & Miss Philippines for my huge mistake. I feel terrible. Secondly, I’d like to apologize to the viewers at that I disappointed as well. Again it was an honest mistake.”
“I don’t want to take away from this amazing night and pageant,” he went on. “As well as the wonderful contestants. They were all amazing.”
