Just as swiftly as the Miss Universe crown was given to — and then taken away from — Miss Colombia Sunday night, host Steve Harvey quickly issued a public apology for his role in the mix-up.“I’d like to apologize wholeheartedly to Miss Colombia and Miss Philippines for my huge mistake,” the talk-show host tweeted. “I feel terrible.”

In subsequent tweets, he apologized to viewers of the live pageant, saying that his announcing Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez as ultimate winner was “an honest mistake.”

  1. …not mad at Steve…to me this is a non-issue at a non-event, but I will say that what he did raised the profile of the event and everyone involved. Neither Steve or the two main contestants could have payed for as much publicity as they and the event will receive due to Steves’ mistake. Instead of being forgotten by next year, this pageant and Steve and the winners will be remembered for years to come. The pageant folk should all thank Steve whether the mistake was intentional or not.
