Decrowned! Most awkward moments in TV history, Steve Harvey announces wrong winner for Miss Universe

Miss UniverseMonths after Donald Trump sold the Miss Universe pageant to WME-IMG the show suffered what can only be described as one of the most awkward situations in television history.

Host Steve Harvey took the stage at the Planet Hollywood Las Vegas Resort & Casino and announced the winner of the contest as Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez-Arévalo .

Just one problem.

She didn’t win.

While Gutierrez-Arévalo celebrated, after donning her crown and sash, an obviously embarrassed Harvey went back out on to the stage to break the news.

“Ok folks, uh, there’s — “I have to apologize, the “Family Feud” host said.

“The first runner-up is Colombia,” he continued as Gutierrez-Arévalo looked on stunned. “Miss Universe 2015 is Philippines.”

Still Miss Colombia didn’t remove the crown which was finally removed by last year’s winner, and ironically last year’s Miss Colombia, Paulina Vega.

Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, just stood there uncomfortably seemingly not knowing what to do.

“Listen, folks. Let me just take control of this. This is exactly what’s on the card. I will take responsibility for this. It was my mistake,” Harvey said as he pleaded with the audience to not hold it against the ladies.

He even went on to social media to apologize.

Social media however responded with bewilderment and brutal mockery.
