Steve Harvey Makes Another Miss Universe Gaffe
Although we're just a month away from 2020, Steve Harvey has made us feel like it's 2015 all over again.
As you may fondly remember, the comedian and TV host announced the wrong winner in the Miss Universe Pageant five years ago, mistakenly crowning Miss Colombia instead of Miss Philippines.
Despite the massive on-air gaffe making headlines around the world in 2015, Harvey kept the hosting gig and has presented the pageant every year since.
"I'm hosting again. Fifth time. Can you believe it? I can't," he reportedly told the crowd on Sunday in Atlanta, Georgia.
It seems that Harvey tempted fate by boldly referencing his 2015 flub, assuring the audience that it was all ancient history before making a joke about upsetting "the cartel" in Colombia.
"Ya'll never really did let go of that Miss Colombia thing. … I survived it all," he said, adding that, "when you fall, get up."
"Colombia has gotten over that, too. They've forgiven me. Well, not all of them. The cartel is still trippin' a little bit."
The 2015 mixup between the Philippines and Colombia must have been swirling around in Harvey's head because, after telling his tale of "survival" he walked straight into another teleprompter trap.
Harvey introduced the crowd to Miss Philippines, who had won the National Costume competition earlier in the week -- except it wasn't Miss Philippines at all.
Grabbing the microphone off Steve, Shweta Sekhon didn't miss a beat in correcting him.
"It's not the Philippines, it's Malaysia," she said.
"Oh, okay, let me just explain something to you," he said, going on to blame the teleprompter.
"Y'all gotta quit doing this to me... this is what they did to me back in 2015!" he added.
At least he got the name of the competition's overall winner (Miss South Africa) correct at the end of the ceremony.
