Controversy

The show became controversial when host Steve Harvey mistakenly announced Ariadna Gutiérrez from Colombia as Miss Universe 2015, even though it had been decided by the judges that Pia Wurtzbach from the Philippines had won.

After Gutiérrez was crowned, Harvey apologized profusely for his “horrible mistake” and showed his cue card, which he had misread, on live television. The crown was removed from Gutierréz’s head by Paulina Vega, Miss Universe 2014, and transferred to Wurtzbach. About three minutes passed from the time Gutierréz was mistakenly announced the winner until Harvey finally named Wurtzbach the winner.The televised show cut abruptly, and Wurtzbach did not have a chance to do her first walk on television.

The Miss Universe Organization acknowledged the error and also issued a public apology to both contestants on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Harvey later blamed theteleprompter[citation needed] and issued a public apology on Twitter.
