And The Winner Of Miss Universe Is … Don’t Ask Steve Harvey!

LAS VEGAS (CBSLA.com/AP) — At the end, the crown was placed on two heads. And for the Miss Universe pageant in 2015, two heads were not better than one.

Host Steve Harvey inadvertently named the wrong winner. Ouch. Yikes. No! Uh oh. And….what?

The Miss Universe contestant from the Philippines is this year’s winner but for one brief moment, it appeared as if it might be a repeat win for Colombia.

Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez Arevalo was already wearing the crown as this year’s Miss Universe winner when host Steve Harvey returned to apologize. Make that profusely apologize.

Harvey says it was his mistake and that he would take responsibility for not reading the card correctly that named contestant Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach this year’s winner and Colombia the first runner-up.

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.

Arevalo also appeared speechless.

Within minutes of the stunning reversal, people watching the East coast feed filled YouTube with videos of the embarrassing moment.

Miss United States rounded out the top 3.
