Steve Harvey finally explained what the heck happened at the Miss Universe pageant on Dec. 20 when he called out the wrong girl’s name as the winner. So what exactly caused the brutal mistake? See his answer, here!
We need answers! Steve Harvey, 58, made the flub of a lifetime when he announced the wrong girl as winner of Miss Universe 2015, and people are demanding to know what really happened. Now, he’s shared what actually caused the painful mix-up. Watch it here!
Steve, Steve, Steve. What are we going to do with you? Ever since he made the epic fail of announcing the wrong winner of the 2015 Miss Universe pageant, everyone is just dying to know what the heck happened! Steve finally responded on Dec. 21, but the answer just isn’t as satisfying as we had hoped it would be.
So, were the winners written on the card in Greek? Did a nefarious producer say the wrong name in his ear piece? Was Steve sent as a spy by an alien nation meant to destroy Earth’s beauty pageants?! Nope, he’s blaming his “mortifying” snafu on an “honest mistake.” Steve accepted 100% of responsibility for the flub. Turns out he just read the darn card wrong.
His return to the stage may have felt brutal and awkward, but Steve didn’t know how else to handle it once he realized what he did. “All that I could do was, when I got back and I started reading the card, was just turn back around and try to fix it,” he said. We must say, it couldn’t have been easy to admit that he made such a tragic error, and while he could have just run off and left a producer to come out and correct it, he did do the right thing. “I mean the dishonorable thing would be to just leave it like it was. It didn’t deserve to happen that way, but it happened from an honest mistake.”
