What a nightmare for Steve Harvey announcing the wrong winner of the Miss Universe 2015 pageant.
I think the Family Feud host was confused by the extended ban disqualifying Filipinos from beauty pageants. Although the ban was extended for two years, technically it did expire in November 2015 so Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, was eligible to win the Miss Universe title. Of course, this had to have been the reason Steve initially announced Miss Colombia as the winner only to correct himself learning of the expired ban.
Here’s the tweeted official statement from the Miss Universe event.
