Steve Harvey Was Involved In Yet Another Cringeworthy Flub At The Miss Universe Pageant

Steve Harvey and Miss Universe have this strange, ongoing relationship of someone giving false information.

Harvey nearly repeated history this week when it was believed that he gave the wrong name at the Miss Universe competition, again.


During the televised ceremony, Harvey was standing on stage alongside Miss Malaysia.

He announced that the winner of the Best National Costume contest was Miss Philippines and an image of her appeared on the stage screen.

Harvey then turned to Miss Malaysia at his side and said:

"This is it right here."

He introduced her as Miss Philippines and began complimenting her outfit.

Miss Malaysia, Shweta Sekhon, then interrupted him and said, with confidence:

"This is not the Philippines. This is Malaysia."

A very agitated Harvey turned back to the camera and the audience and said:

"Let me explain something to you. I just read that in the teleprompter. Y'all got to quit doing this to me. I can read... Now, they are trying to fix it now. See? This is what they did to me back in 2015, played me short like that."

Harvey's statement was met with laughter, while he was clearly very flustered with the mix-up.

Here were some of the initial reactions:




As it turns out, though, Steve Harvey did not repeat his cringeworthy mistake from 2015 when he read the wrong name from the card announcing who had won the title, which you can watch below:

During the live broadcast of the show, the official Miss Universe account tweeted:

"Voted BEST National Costume... Malaysia!"

Later, with all of the confusion and jabs toward Steve Harvey, the Miss Universe account tweeted again to amend the situation.

They wrote:

"@IAmSteveHarvey had it right: Miss Universe Philippines Gazini Ganados is the winner of the #MissUniverse2019 National Costume competition! Congratulations, Gazini."

It was also confirmed that the information posted on Twitter was not mirrored on the teleprompter.

While the Miss Universe account tweeted that the winner was Malaysia, Steve Harvey was correct in reading and stating that the winner was the Philippines.

Viewers are a mixture of confused and frustrated with what happened at the end of the contest.

Some are also recommending, whether or not this was Steve Harvey's fault, that it's time for him to move on from the show, while he's still ahead.



Others are taking the moment with a grain of salt and showing Harvey a little support.



Whether it was an actual flub-up, a jab at Harvey's mistake four years ago, or an attempt at an inside-joke, we know one thing for sure: Steve Harvey will surely be careful from now on.
