When The Wrong Woman Is Crowned Miss Universe 2015

December 21, 2015
We all make honest-to-God mistakes from time to time, but there are some errors we make that we will never live down, because the whole world got to witness it.

Miss Universe 2015 was just crowned on the 21st of December. It seemed like any other edition of the beauty pageant, until something out of the ordinary happened.

Steve Harvey is a seasoned actor and comedian, with 30 years in the entertainment industry. So it made sense that he was invited to host the 2015 Miss Universe pageant.

But he did something the world will never forget. He mistakenly named the wrong woman as the winner!

Ariadna Gutierrez Arevalo from Colombia had already been crowned and was standing on stage to cheers from the Las Vegas audience, when he returned to announce the error.

Just look at this awkward moment. The crown was snatched from Miss Colombia’s head!

Internet citizens reacted of course!


Harvey attempted to apologize on Twitter, but it fell flat, because he forgot how to spell “Phillippines” and “Colombia”.

Unfortunately, this will go down in history as one of the worst blunders in beauty pageant history! We hope that Miss Colombia has the fortitude to bear the loss.
