Harvey crowns wrong winner at Miss Universe pageant

BY foxsports • December 20, 2015

Just when you think you've seen it all, host Steve Harvey announced the wrong winner for Miss Universe on Sunday night.

Seconds after the mistake on live TV, Colombia contestant Ariadna Gutierrez Arevalo was already wearing the crown as this year's winner when Harvey returned to apologize.

Then they took crown right off Miss Colombia's head. 

You have to watch this video:

I'm honestly still in shock. How did the producers not correct him before he actually allowed the crown to be put on Miss Colombia's head? Did the producers not know the results?

And I'm mad as hell because I was watching the crappy "Homeland" finale while this was airing. 

Harvey said it was his mistake and that he would take responsibility for not reading the card correctly that named Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach this year's winner and Miss Colombia the first runner-up, The Associated Press reported.

A mystified Wurtzbach appeared stunned as she walked to the front of the stage alongside the crown-wearing Arevalo before last year's Miss Universe from Colombia removed the crown and placed it on Wurtzbach's head instead.

After the show was over, Harvey reportedly apologized in person to Wurtzbach.

Gutierrez seemed to take it pretty well. Actually, she showed a lot of class with her comments.

Of course, social media went bonkers.
