Comedian cum TV host, Steve Harvey, has apologised for his howler at the Miss Universe 2015 contest where he wrongfully declared Miss Colombia the winner when she was actually the first runner-up.
The “Family Feud” host took to Twitter to apologise for announcing the wrong winner Sunday night for the Miss Universe pageant.
“I’d like to apologise wholeheartedly to Miss Colombia & Miss Philippines for my huge mistake. I feel terrible.
“Secondly, I’d like to apologise to the viewers at that I disappointed as well. Again it was an honest mistake.
“I don’t want to take away from this amazing night and pageant. As well as the wonderful contestants. They were all amazing.” He wrote.
Recalling the incident, Harvey, who was serving as a master of ceremony for the pageant, initially read the winner as Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez, who was quickly crowned.
Moments later, Harvey came up stage announcing that Gutierrez was in fact the first runner-up and the actual winner was Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, Miss Philippines.
