Miss Universe pageant host Steve Harvey makes huge gaffe, names wrong winner | Fox News

OMG! what a mistake... "Harvey, who was hosting the contest for the first time, held up the card announcing the order of finishers for Fox network cameras to see up close afterward. He said he re-read the card and noticed it said "first runner-up" next to the Colombia contestant's name before he asked producers if he had made a mistake. Talking with reporters afterward, Harvey and an executive for pageant owner WME-IMG called it human error."

I can't imagine the disappointment of Miss Columbia after being named Miss Universe and then being told she was the second runner up.

Yeah, that's pretty embarrassing for him and Miss Colombia. Imagine being her. Waving, crying, wearing the crown for 2 minutes only to have it removed from your head all on live TV. Ouch.

Harvey is getting killed on the internet, not only for the boo-boo, but also for spelling "Colombia" wrong. Social media rearing its ugly head once again.

But yeah, it isn't Columbia. It's Colombia. Let's get that out of the way.

LOL, didn't even notice, no worries! I know I've made that mishap before.

Just as I type this, I can hear someone in the office next to me watching a video of this with a few co-workers.

The Internet is ruthless.

People love to make a big deal out of nothing, and the Internet doesn't help. Social media is both amazing and awful for society at the same time IMHO. The way some people are endlessly shamed and made fun of is terrible. But then again it's a great news source.

But seriously that must have been mortifying for Miss Colombia.


I have never been a fan of Steve Harvey's because he is way too cocky for his own good....and he proved it with this fiasco

He also spelled Phillipines as "Phillipians"


He made himself look bad by not reading the whole card and then not spelling two words right in a short tweet. LOL

I haven't watched a pageant in probably 40 years but even I know you announce the runner up first and then the winner. Wasn't it obvious to people when he did it in reverse order? I'm sure the girls in the pageant have been in many and have had rehearsals for this one.
