The host of Miss Universe called out the WRONG winner last night

The Miss Universe contest ended in complete confusion last night as the host of the competition named the wrong winner… and didn't realise until a while after.

The crown was given to Ariadna Gutierrez Arevalo, Miss Colombia, and as she was standing on stage with cheers filling the room, the mortified host, Steve Harvey returned to announce that he made a mistake.

"Ok, folks, um, I have to apologise. The first runner-up is Colombia. Miss Universe 2015 is Philippines."

The camera then flashed to Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, and she started to walk to the front on the stage.

Steve then explained that he read the card wrong and said the runner-up and winner in the wrong order. Big mistake!

I will take responsibility for this, it was my mistake,” he told the audience. 

“Please don’t hold it against the ladies, please don’t. I feel so badly but it’s still a great night.”
