In what had to be the most awkward moment on live television in recent memory, Steve Harvey accidentally crowned Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez-Arévalo, the winner of the 2015 Miss Universe Pageant. The confusion came at the end of the telecast when Harvey was meant to announce the pageant’s first runner-up, Gutierrez-Arévalo, and the actual winner, Ms. Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach. Instead, Harvey blundered and said the wrong name.

The contestant from the Philippines was the new Miss Universe, not Miss Colombia.
