Host Steve Harvey was mistakenly crowned Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez Arevalo as the winner of the Miss Universe 2015.
As the crown was already on the head of Arevalo and had been given her flowers, Harvey interrupted the live broadcast and said he'd made a mistake and that the actual winner was the person he named as first runner-up, Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach.
Miss USA Olivia Jordan was second runner up.
After the competition ended, Harvey took to Twitter in order to apologize.
I'd like to apologize wholeheartedly to Miss Colombia & Miss Philippines for my huge mistake. I feel terrible.— Steve Harvey (@IAmSteveHarvey) December 21, 2015
Secondly, I'd like to apologize to the viewers at that I disappointed as well. Again it was an honest mistake.— Steve Harvey (@IAmSteveHarvey) December 21, 2015
I don't want to take away from this amazing night and pageant. As well as the wonderful contestants. They were all amazing.— Steve Harvey (@IAmSteveHarvey) December 21, 2015
