Last night, Steve Harvey crowned the wrong winner for the Miss Universe pageant in Las Vegas.
Harvey firstly named Miss Columbia, Adriadna Gutierrez Arevalo as the winner. Shortly after the announcement, Harvey announced he made a mistake and the actual winner is, Miss Philippines, Paz Alonzo. This was the first time Harvey hosted the Miss Universe pageant and said he caught his error once he re-read the announcement card and it actually said “first runner up” next to Miss Columbia name.
To add insult to injury, not only did Miss Columbia have to give her crown and flowers she received to Miss Philippines on live television, but when Harvey apologized on Twitter to both contestants he misspelled they countries wrong.
Last night I caught the show at a restaurant I was dining at and saw the whole fiasco. Even though I thought it was hilarious, I believe Harvey was genuinely sorry for the misfortune. You can see the embarrassment and sincerity on his face during the ordeal.
On a lighter note, I don’t know whose Miss Philippines pageant coach, but they taught her how to serve face very well. She was giving everyone on social media and including myself LIFE last night. Miss Philippines, was filled with so much personality all over that stage lol.
What are your thoughts on last night pageant?
