People make mistakes. We are human and we are not perfect. No normal being would want to be in boiling water especially in live audience. The most important thing is he rectify his mistake at that very moment.
miss Columbia deserve to be miss universe this is ethically very very wrong
Leave Steve alone he made a mistake and he fixed it that should be the end of it.
I am not a pro-Steve harvey nor anti-Steve harvey. Base on my observations, people may make mistakes whether we like it or not. Every mistakes has its own consequences. I believe it is just an awful incident. We must learn from the people's mistakes in order not to happen it again into our lives. We must analyse and understand the cause behind of his mistakes. It is also a normal reaction that people may disappoint or criticise Steve Harvey of his mistakes of the event. Let them criticise until they will realise what if it will happen to them in a certain event? How will they face this certain awful situation? I believe Steve harvey is a strong man of accepting his mistakes but yet reckless due to the damage he have done to the emotions of the contestants. I hope he will learn his lessons. He should not be punish because he sincerely accept his mistakes. But if he did it again on the other events, there is something wrong of his actions and it should be corrected immediately. I hope that It will be a lesson to learn for everyone that we must be mentally, emotionally, and spiritually prepared in order to minimise this kind of terrible mistakes. It is obvious that people makes mistakes, but it should be corrected and not to be tolerated. It will be prevented through learning other's mistake and through anticipating the consequences of a certain action.
Harvey has no caliber to judge.He looks so awkward during the contest,unlike the previous hosts, so relax and full of smiles.This guy,Harvey should have not been the host.He was facing the entire world and his mistake is unpardonable by the government of Colombia.The contest should have been hosted by a young and handsome American.There must two hosts for one head especially if brainless head is not enough.Human error is not an excuse.He should have been very careful and read everything.The damaged has been done and hard to repair shame of Miss Colombia and the struggle of Miss Philippines.It's a struggle, of course, it is not easy to see someone heart broken.
That's a stupid question that follows a really, really stupid mistake. I suppose you can generate a conspiracy theory among 30% of the people over whether Elvis Pressley is still alive and serving as president of Ubangia. Practice and rehearsals are held to prevent a really idiotic mistake like the one made by Steve Harvey. There's no excuse and no justification for that having happened! Apparently Steve even misspelled the writing of the names of the two countries involved! JUST READ WHAT'S WRITTEN! That will avoid the problem.
I don't think it was a mistake, steve new what he was doing people.
I looked at the last 3 min to see a winner and saw all that wrong wiinner stuff. Too many of these cattle calls
I think this was all scripted, because, if he made that mistake, why the judges didn't say anything right away, why he had to step out and come back, I don't think it was a mistake. Horrible!!!!
Like he said he didn't do it purposely he just made a human mistake , he is a great man and no body is perfect
My objection with Steve Harvey is not only his lack of knowledge to host this show, but his objectifying women as sexual objects throughout the broadcast. He came across as most interested in the swimsuit contest, which he alluded to as most watched by men. It wasn't funny. He sets back the moral fiber of the show by 20 years. Again, this guy should never host any show that showcases women. He is an affront to women's dignity. Let someone without swimsuit fetish host the show next time, in addition to somebody who is willing to do his homework prior to the broadcast.
It's ok Steve mistakes are made by all of us. It's unfortunate but you handled it correctly and everyone will move on from this as soon as someone else makes a mistake. Team Steve!
I feel sad for Steve and the girls, but it is just a stupid beauty contest, who cares, people are killing themselves out there, war, poverty, illnesses, hunger, this is nithing
No Angie, Steve did not "wait until Miss C cried from being erroneously" from the two (Col, PHil) were left for final announcement, the tears were flowing! I thought it was corrected in good time. What if it were after presenting all the prizes? Luckily it had reached just flowers n crown! Hats off to Miss C though she was gracious in stooping to hand over the crown; great upbringing by her parents/guardians or whomever groomed the queens! THINGS HAPPEN! Again, great, great show.
Whomever is this Janice, you really show how arrogant/ignorant/hateful people can be; really! Did you re-read your post before submitting it or you just write for the sake of upsetting someone else's stomach? Please, we are trying to make the world a better place YOU HATER!
Steve Harvey is brave enough to accept his mistake, after all he is Human and he is not exempted on this, its an honest mistake.
Perhaps he was not briefed before hand on how to handle winners, and this can be the organizers fault.
I am sorry for Ms. Columbia, tho its really embarrassing but I salute her being a sports lady, after all she is also a winner.
Proud of Pia, from Philippines where i came from too, she never realized shes the winner, however she deserves the crown.
In short, whatever happens on this Ms. Universe pageant, it will be a history forever and we should not blame anyone else. WE ARE NOT PERFECT..
It was a mistake...Harvey read the wrong winner. The cue card showing correct sequence of winners from 2nd, first, then the Miss Universe winner. I can tell there was sometning wrong after the crown was placed on Miss Columbia's head....she was supposed to walk around but instead stood still waiting for command...the camera was also waiting....as soon as Steve Harvey said the first word, then I knew there was a mistake....the crowd just went live. I felt so bad for Miss Columbia and Miss Philippines for the embarassment and for the confussion. Both women stood strong and poised and handled the situation very well.
Nothing can stop me from loving Steve. As a fellow responder said, he got distracted after those loud shouts! This was no pre-arranged stunt; shame on persons for thinking that that error would "give the show more attention!" We are human and humans make mistakes because we aren't perfect. My 1-2-3 was Miss USA, Phillipines then Columbia. Miss Columbia is a beautiful girl; however, she blundered in her walk (maybe over confident), and her response to the final question was a non-answer as she kept going around in circles - pure wordiness and even using a word twice for thrice as she grappled for words to answer a simple question! I would not choose Miss Phillipines to win but since Miss USA missed it, then definitely it would have been her. LOVE YOU STEVE ; you are one of the best hosts I have seen for Miss Universe!! Really enjoyed YOU. All the best Miss Phillipines!
Doesn't anybody understand a mistake? We teach our kids about mistakes then we criticize Steve. I feel so sorry for him. He is really embarrassed. Its OK Steve. Just an honest mistake. Don't spend the rest of your life apologizing!
Best ever Miss Universe!!!
Scott Aman your mom should have swallowed a brick and terminated you.. You're only saying that because of his skin color you insensitive piece of shit. I know your want to be perfect ass has made plenty of mistakes I bet you are a skinny prick who likes gerbers up your a**
It was a mistake due to a quick distraction, I think Miss Colombia didn't showed any excitement, maybe she was in disbelieve. She was very polite at Miss Philippines who is the real Miss Universe. She won in courtesy, other in her place would cry the whole night. She is a very strong woman who faced a difficult situation with courage, full control keeping her beauty. Congratulations to both queens.
Steve Harvey obviously can't read. We can't spell too!! (read his twitter grab apologizing to both contestants, he spelled Philippines as Phillipians, as in the bible). Whoever hired this f@cIng retarded must be fired!
Yes embarrassing for miss Columbia. but like most of you said. No one is perfect and Steve did take ownership of his mistake right away.
Another great Live Entertainment moment to add to my list.
Janet Jackson halftime, Kanye as T-swift, and now this.
Things like this happen. Doesn't change my world but still entertaining to watch.
Everything happens for a reason..it wasn't Colombia who should win; since the beginning she was too confident ..you saw her almost falling during the evening gown round???And than her answer to her question in the top 5? Not worth a Miss Universe!!!!!
Since the beginning of the show Philippines had the best changes.
Steve Harvey was driven away when he asked "who is the winner".....and the crowd started shouting....HE ONLY COULD HEAR "COLOMBIA"...and their it happens....
His presentation was the best I ever saw...he must feel sorry..but let us not make it harder for him please.
ITS ALL ON THAT LITTLE PIECE OF PAPER HE HAD IN HIS HAND
Something needs to be done to make it up to Miss Colombia- Steve Harvey should of made the correction instantly and not wait
I have watched pageants for as long as i can remember, i'm 55 years old and LOVE Steve Harvey but this was a TERRIBLE , TERRIBLE mistake... I had chose Miss USA to take first place... So deserving.... After she was named 3rd , I picked Miss Philippines to win.. So SAD for Miss Columbia... After Celebrating , The Flowers, The Crown and The Walk , To take it all away is just a SICK day for her, She is probably still in SHOCK.. They LIVE and BREATH This Day .... PRAYERS ,for all of them Tonight...
Things happen!!! It's unfortunate but mistakes happen, especially live!
You don't play with these girls feelings and Steve Harvey or Fox reputation this way for publicity stunts..a real bad gaff for Steve Harvey, I'm sorry for him but I think he does not know how to read or the ballot needs improvement on bold on "1st runner up"...
How stupid!!! He was advised how the pageant was run. Anyone knows how it is run. It is the worst mistake a person could make in this case. How could they have chosen him for this event? I hope he suffers for this idiotic error. They should cancel his show because of this stupid gaffe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Not Steves fault!!! He was going by the teleprompter which he read correctly! This is just making him look bad!!! There's a video out there....look it up!
nobody is perfect. don't speak as if you haven't done wrong. steve is also human, he is not perfect. he already apologize and he accept the consequences of his action.
TO THE WHOLE UNIVERSE ... IT WAS AN HONEST MISTAKE!!!! STEVE HARVEY IS AWESOME!!! SO WHAT HE MADE A MISTAKE , IT'S JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE IN THIS UNIVERSE MAKES MISTAKES.
I feel sorry for the actual Miss Universe, she was deprive from that special moment of glory.
Disappointed . . . YES - Embarrassed . . . NO!! Steve Harvey should be the one to be embarrassed.
I feel so sorry for her. I do hope the pagent makes it right and gives her compensation for such embarrassment.
He should have corrected himself immediately and not waited until that poor girl cries from emotion after being erroneously crowned and sashed... What an embarrassment to her before millions of viewers! Not right!!!
