    Did anyone watch this?

    I'm not sure if I ever have but we (wife and kids) just watched it live. The host (Steve Harvey) announced that Columbia was the winner and Philippines was runner up.

    After a few minutes of celebrating and putting the sash and crown on Columbia, Steve Harvey apologized and said he accidentally messed up and mixed up the runner up and winner.

    Steve Harvey just announced the wrong winner in the Miss Universe competition. The whole thing was a train wreck!

    Reddit is going to have a field day with this one. They (and, well, lots of people) don't like Steve Harvey very much. I feel bad for the young ladies, though.

    I think you probably want to replace your link, Tracy... it now goes to a shirtless guy with dreadlocks talking to the camera.

    That said, I wasn't watching but I had left a TV on in another room after the football game, and came back into the room just in time to see the train wreck. Mortifying for everyone involved.

    Edit: better YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmqAjr0xs04

    Thanks...edited the link out.

    I'm not a huge Steve Harvey fan, but he was lousy earlier in the broadcast, too. He kept making smarmy statements that felt out of place in a show that is supposed to be (questionably) empowering women. Also, he seemed confounded by the translators helping the women answer questions. He tweeted an apology and spelled the Philippines wrong!

    I heard about this, but assumed it went something like this:

    The winner is "Miss Columbia.....oh no, my mistake, it's miss phillipines".

    I had no idea it went on so long with the wrong woman thinking she had won. Holy Crap.

    Why didn't someone else jump in sooner and say something?

    I am going to go out on a limb and say he might not be hosting the pageant again next year.

    It doesn't help explain why it took so long before they fixed the screwup... but here's an image of Harvey's cue card that helps explain why he made the mistake he did:

    What a horrible layout! I can easily see why he made the mistake he did!

    It happened right in front of the PH where the pageant took place. I'll remove it if another person thinks it isn't pertinent to the thread.

    Unless Miss Columbia was driving, it's not relevant

    Are you guys new to this place? :D



    I mean, it won't be too long before we start discussing why people have issues with Steve Harvey. And then, before you know it, it's a gun control thread. :)
