Everyone makes mistakes, so lots of things can go wrong in the lead up to the final moments of the Miss Universe pageant. Even the most well-prepared ladies can flub their carefully rehearsed answers to interview questions. What people don’t expect is for the biggest mistake of the night to come from the host, but that’s exactly what happened this year.
During Sunday evening’s most climactic moment, Steve Harvey read the card wrong. Instead of announcing the pageant’s rightful winner – Miss Philippines, Pia Wurtzbach, Harvey’s mouth went with a different candidate – Miss Colombia, Paulina Vega. Whoops!
Yup, that was an oopsie. But, everyone makes mistakes.
