Well, if you are going to mess up as the host of a pageant you might as well do it big time.
Comedian and Family Feud host Steve Harvey was the host of December 20’s Miss Universe pageant. During the closing moments when we was supposed to announce the winner, Harvey accidentally read the wrong name!
Talk about an awkward moment! Harvey would later take to Facebook to apologize for the blunder:
I made a terrible mistake tonight in announcing the wrong winner and runner-up for the Miss Universe pageant. I know how much pride many countries, fans and most importantly, the contestants take in preparing for this night. I hope that you can forgive me.
All contestants were amazing but I want to specifically apologize to Miss Colombia and Miss Philippines again and wholeheartedly. You both represented well for your countries, families and yourselves.
We can only imagine what was going through Miss Columbia’s head when she figured out she wasn’t the winner.
