The Miss Universe pageant has suffered in ratings in recent years, but last night practically broke the internet when host Steve Harvey incorrectly announced the 1st runner up as the winner. For a few moments Sunday evening, it appeared as if Colombia might have had a repeat win.  Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez Arevalo had been awarded the win and was already wearing the crown, when host Harvey returned to apologize.  Harvey indicated that he had made a mistake and took responsibility for not correctly reading the card, which said that contestant Pia Wurtzbach of the Philippines was this year’s winner – holding up the card for the cameras to see.

He held up the card for Fox network cameras to see up close afterward.  In a press conference held later, Harvey remarked “Nobody feels worse about this than me.”
