Host Steve Harvey named the wrong winner at the 2015 Miss Universe pageant.
Instead of naming the actual winner, Harvey announced that Miss Colombia (Andrea Tovar) had won the pageant. In reality, Miss Philippines (Pia Wurtzbach) was the winner.
To compound the error, Harvey made a spelling mistake apologizing about the incident on Twitter, writing, “I want to apologize emphatically to Miss Philippians and Miss Columbia. This was a terribly honest human mistake and I am so regretful.”
A photo was released by ESPN Sports Business Reporter Darren Rovell showing that Miss Philippines was clearly indicated as the winner on the pageant result card, so obviously Harvey completely misread and mangled the reading of the winner.
