Seconds after declaring and crowning Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez as the victor of Miss Universe 2015, host Steve Harvey, cut the glorious moment and then apologized for a mistaken announcement, saying:
“Listen folks let me just tell you. Let me just take control of this. This is exactly what’s on the card I will take responsibility for this. It was my mistake. It was on the card. Horrible mistake but the right thing is here. The first runner up is Colombia. It was my mistake. Still a great night. Please don’t hold it against the ladies. Please Don’t. We feel so badly but it still a great night.”
Miss Colombia was the real first runner up, and the winner is…Pia Wurtzbach, Philippines!
It was a supposed back-to-back win for Colombia, following Pauline Vega of last year’s Miss Universe.
Pia Wurtzbach can’t believe what he said
“Girl, you’re the rightful owner of this year’s crown!” Such a sweet support from Miss USA. <3
While Pia is still in shock, the Filipinos, of course, are already on their feet cheering! …or on their homes, tweeting
You gotta love her because of the compassion she showed towards Gutierrez.
And dang! look at her gown, the designer, Albert Andrada, have done it perfectly on point!
Now Philippines is still in cloud 9 with the said announcement:
Oh, wait. Did Pia undergo smizing sessions?
So what’s next for Steve Harvey?
