LAS VEGAS, NV – Family Feud’s Steve Harvey almost started an international beauty feud in Las Vegas on Sunday night.
Right there for all the world to see, he wrongly named the Miss Colombia as the new Miss Universe, instead of Miss Philippines.
Miss Colombia’s reign, and dream of a lifetime, lasted only a few seconds.
"I have to apologize. The first runner-up is Colombia. Miss Universe 2015 is Philippines!"
Harvey read the wrong name on the card, which clearly showed the name of the real winner.
“I will take responsibility for this,” Harvey told the audience. “It was my mistake. It was on the card."
Miss Columbia was stripped of her crown, literally, as stunned viewers watched Miss Universe 2014 place it on the head of Miss Philippines, in an incredibly awkward scene.
Harvey couldn’t even get his apology tweet right, changing the name of Philippines to Philippians, and spelling Colombia as Columbia.
Harvey also posting a picture with Miss Philippines back stage, saying he apologized personally to her and to Miss Colombia.
This year’s pageant was under new management after Donald Trump sold it earlier in the year.
And, as expected, Trump had something to say about it, tweeting that he was very sad, noting that he sold it for a record price, and adding that this would not have happened if he still had the pageant.
In another pageant controversy, the folks who run the Miss Puerto Rico-Miss America pageant indefinitely suspended Destiny Valez after she posted anti-muslim tweets in response to Canadian film director Michael Moore’s “we are all Muslims” protest.
Valez tweeted “Muslims use our constitution to terrorize USA and plant gas stations, adding in another tweet that Muslims “terrorize this country and many others.”
Beauty may be skin deep, but dumb can sometimes go all the way to the bone.
