Miss Philippines Wins Miss Universe After Steve Harvey Botches Announcement (VIDEO)
Miss Universe results tonight, Sunday, December 20, 2015. The winner was revealed live from The AXIS, Las Vegas, NV.
Host Steve Harvey made one of the biggest bloopers in TV history by announcing the wrong name of the winner – effectively destroying the entire show and a happy ending. Unbelievable. Press play to watch the embarrassing video below.
80 contestants from all over the world competed. The judges included: Emmitt Smith, Niecy Nash, Olivia Culpo and Perez Hilton. Steve Harvey was the host.
The surprise “judge” were the rest of the contestants. Viewers worldwide were also allowed to vote. Over 10 million votes were cast.
This is the first pageant since Donald Trump sold the organization to WME/IMG last September.

OMG Steve Harvey just called Miss Philippines… “Philippians”
I want to apologize emphatically to Miss Philippians and Miss Columbia. This was a terribly honest human mistake and I am so regretful.
