The 2015 Miss Universe was selected and ready to take her crown. The pageant’s host Steve Harvey was ready to announce this year’s winner. The three finalists were Miss USA, Miss Colombia, and Miss Philippines. Miss USA came in third while the other ladies anxiously waited for the final announcement. Finally, Harvey named Miss Colombia the winner.
Moments later, as Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez-Arévalo posed for pictures, Harvey came back and apologized – he made a mistake and the wrong beauty queen was crowned. Miss Universe 2015 was rightfully Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach.
Harvey apologized, assuming responsibility for the error. But the damage to the Colombian contestant was already done. What do you think? Tell us on Twitter!
We congratulate the beautiful Filipina Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach as Miss Universe 2015!
