LAS VEGAS -- Host Steve Harvey apologized after a major mixup during the Miss Universe 2015 pageant.

The Miss Universe contestant from the Philippines is this year's winner but for one brief moment, it appeared as if it might be a repeat win for Colombia.

Colombia contestant Ariadna Gutierrez Arevalo was already wearing the crown as this year's Miss Universe winner when host Steve Harvey returned to apologize.

Harvey says it was his mistake and that he would take responsibility for not reading the card correctly that named contestant Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach this year's winner and Colombia the first runner-up.

A mystified Wurtzbach appeared stunned as she walked to the front of the stage alongside the crown-wearing Arevalo before last year's Miss Universe from Colombia removed the crown and placed it on Wurtzbach's head instead.
Just about the same thing happened during Season 6 of Australia's Next Top Model, but that kinda leads to something - how big of a scandal should these mix-ups be? Steve Harvey has turned into a giant Internet meme and this will be something to talk about for years to come. What should become of his career?

It actually says "1st runner up" on the card!? Of course someone could misread that as "1st place" on first glance. The formatting on that card is just asking for confusion. I wouldn't say it should be a big scandal, it's already humiliating enough for those involved (edit: although I was kinda obsessed with listening to Aussie radio to hear their reactions when it happened over there kink.gif). As for Steve Harvey, I don't think it will ruin his career, but I'd be surprised if he hosts Miss Universe again.

I saw on one tweet of the show that the teleprompter was wrong, and that the card was for show.

Pia was so graceful about it, but you can tell that the entire thing was that awkward.

Miss USA laughing her ass off tho *dead*

It's a bit more public than the Aussie Top Model one but it'll probably blow over just about as quick.

Quite hilarious for everyone other than Ariadna though. Poor lass.

Miss Colombia IS stunning though, as a total aside.
