As humans, we all make mistakes. Steve Harvey, a famous human, just made a huge one on live television.
While hosting the 2015 Miss Universe pageant on Sunday night (Dec. 20), Harvey announced that Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez, was the winner. Harvey then found out that Miss Colombia did not earn first place, but first runner-up, while the contestant was still onstage, celebrating. Miss Philippines, Pia Wurtzbach, was the real Miss Universe winner.
Watch a full clip below:
Harvey quickly apologized on air and soon after on Twitter, calling the gaffe a "huge mistake."
Emmitt Smith, Perez Hilton and Olivia Culpo were among the Miss Universe judges, while actress Roselyn Sanchez co-hosted. Miss USA, Olivia Jordan, came in third place.
I'd like to apologize wholeheartedly to Miss Colombia & Miss Philippines for my huge mistake. I feel terrible.— Steve Harvey (@IAmSteveHarvey) December 21, 2015
