The prestigious Beauty Pageant, Miss Universe, have finally declared this year's winner; Miss Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach of Philippines. But before the announcement of her victory, there was an epic failure made by the pageant's host; Mr. Steve Harvey.
Mistakenly, Mr. Harvey announced Miss Colombia (Ariadna Gutierrez) as the winner. It was a real awkward moment when he returned in front of the crowd and apologized for his mistake, where Miss Colombia was already wearing the crown. Everyone was thinking that he was just about to make a joke.
Following the honest mistake, Mr. Harvey sincerely apologized especially to Miss Colombia and Miss Philippines for misreading the card. He then tweeted an apology in his twitter account (which he later on deleted).
Though it was an awful correction for Miss Colombia, and a shocking victory for Miss Philippines, both ladies stayed professional. Basically, a lot of Miss Colombia's supporters bashed the said incorrect declaration.
What's important was that, Mr. Harvey admitted his mistake confidently in front of the World. He was a good example of an imperfect person who willingly accepts his fault not just to himself but to the whole Universe.
To everyone who keeps on bashing Mr. Harvey, just remember what Miss Universe 2015 (Pia) answered in the final Q&A portion, "..show the universe that 'you' are confidently beautiful with a HEART.".
Miss Universe 2015 coronation will forever be remembered!
