Harvey had a very public mishap Sunday night while serving as Miss Universe host, when he mistakenly crowned Miss Colombia (Ariadna Gutierrez) the winner, when in fact Miss Philippines (Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach) had won. He later blamed the flub on misreading his cue card.
The 2015 Miss Universe Pageant ends with arguably, the biggest TV fail of the year. Host Steve Harvey, instead of announcing Colombia as the first runner up, declares her as the winner and new Miss Universe. After several minutes, he returns to the stage to apologize and make things right. Awkwardness then ensues as some of the audience cheers while others boo and Miss Philippines comes down to accept her crown.
Steve’s Wife said: “You are a Stand Up Man and A True Class Act the way you went back out on the stage on live TV and took full responsibility alone,” she wrote on Instagram Monday. “I am so proud to be your wife! I love you.”
