Miss Universe pageant host Steve Harvey makes huge gaffe, names wrong winner
The “Family Feud” host first declared Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez as the victor when, in fact, the card shows Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, as the ultimate victor.
Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez, right, and Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach wait for the announcer to name the new Miss Universe. In an epic fail at the 64th edition of the Miss Universe beauty pageant, the host of the show, comedian Steve Harvey, announced the wrong contestant as the victor.
Wurtzbach walked up to Miss Columbia, who bent down so that Miss Universe 2014 could remove her crown and place it on Wurtzbach’s head. Miss Colombia cried and was crowned the victor by the reigning Miss Universe Paulina Vega.
