“The Old Switcharoo”
Posted On Dec 21, 2015
The most epic fail in television hosting ever occurred during last night’s Miss Universe pageant when Steve Harvey announced Miss Colombia as the winner, when really it was Miss Philippines.
They had to awkwardly switch the crowns and everything! What a mess.
If I were to guess, he probably was supposed to announce Miss Colombia as the first runner up but rather, he announced her as the winner. Oopsies!
Harvey, in a quick attempt to do some damage control, apologized greatly for his mistake and turned the envelope around for the crowd and viewing audience to see that he indeed, mixed the two up. He seemed very embarrassed and deeply sorry for his mistake.
This tweet was quickly taken down after the misspelling of Colombia and Philippines became apparent. Ugh, can this guy get a break?!?
I feel bad for the famous host and comedian and can only imagine the humiliation he is experiencing. I feel even worse for the amount of guff he’ll get from the public from here on out. This isn’t going away. It’ll be around for a long time. We don’t forget these things. I wish this could have gone down in pre-Twitter era.
Poor guy and poor Miss Colombia.
Here was the impending Twitter roast that ensued: *I’m only going to do 3 because I can’t fully support this shameless harpooning.
You got this Mr. Harvey… laugh this one off! #BelieveinSteve
