The famous Miss Universe Pageant was broadcast live on Sunday, December 20 at 7/6c on FOX. Steve Harvey, who also hosts Family Feud, was the main announcer. Unfortunately, he made a huge mistake, announcing the winner as Miss Colombia, who was actually the first runner-up.

Miss Colombia was seen wiping tears of joy from her eyes when Steve reentered the stage to apologize. He then announced Miss Philippines as the winner, showing the card with the results to the camera as verification. A surprised and confused Miss Philippines walks to the center of the stage. Miss Colombia was de-crowned and Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, was rightfully crowned as Miss Universe by last year's winner.

Steve said, "I will take responsibility for this. It was my mistake." Watch the video:
However, on his Snapchat story, he blamed the mistake on the Teleprompter.He apologized again on Twitter, hoping to make amends.When talking to reporters, Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, mentioned that she felt joyous for winning but also concerned for her fellow contestant from Colombia. Miss Colombia was seen crying after the show surrounded by a group of women.
