New Delhi: Steve Harvey, the host of Miss Universe pageant event, did something that the host of any award show absolutely cannot do, he announced the wrong winner.
The final two contestants standing were Miss Colombia and Miss Philippines, and Harvey wished them both luck as he opened the envelope and prepared to read the winner. He then mistakenly announced that Miss Colombia was the winner.
She proceeded to stand there, waved hands and blow kisses to the crowd. After a few minutes, the host apologizes and announces his mistake.
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.
