Somewhere out there Donald Trump is all smiles and giggles. Even without his participation, Miss Universe generated controversy.
Given all his experience with cue cards on Family Feud, you’d think reading the results correctly would be a breeze for Steve Harvey. Well, you thought wrong. The 58-year-old entertainer mistakenly announced Miss Columbia Ariadna Gutierrez as the winner of the 2016 Miss Universe pageant. Turns out, the Latin beauty actually placed runner-up with Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach being the rightful winner.
What followed was the most awkward thing I’ve seen in a while. Can you imagine receiving the crown, only to have it physically removed seconds later? Both ladies handled the faux pas graciously but you gotta feel bad for both of them. I certainly did.
Minus that awful incident, the annual competition delivered some more lighthearted memorable moments. Charlie Puth, The Band Perry and Seal performed. The parade of costumes was fantastic as always. Miss Austria dressed up as Conchita Wurst, even donning a fake beard. I literally spit out my food when I saw that on my screen.
Check out the huge coronation faux pas below. Guess Harvey probably won’t be asked to host again 😉
