Steve Harvey interviews Pass up Philippines Gazini Ganados onstage at the 2019 Skip Universe Pageant.
Steve Harvey’s Pass up Universe ghosts arrived back again to haunt him.
The 62-12 months-old host, who famously named the erroneous winner at the Miss out on Universe pageant in 2015, was accused of flubbing contest success Sunday — but he was afterwards cleared.
“Earlier this week, all the contestants competed in a Countrywide Costume contest. Here’s the seem at the winner, Pass up Philippines,” he claimed during this year’s contest in Atlanta, according to United states of america These days.
“It’s not Philippines. It’s Malaysia,” Miss Universe Malaysia Shweta Sekhon firmly explained to the host whilst standing beside him on phase.
Flustered, Harvey blamed the teleprompter.
“Let me reveal something to you. I just examine that in the teleprompter. Ya’ll acquired to stop doing this to me. I can go through,” he said.
“Now, they are attempting to take care of it now. See? This is what they did to me back in 2015 — performed me shorter like that.”
Before in the display, Harvey joked about his 2015 error, when he named Overlook Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez Arevalo, as the night’s major winner, alternatively of Miss out on Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurzbach.
“I’m hosting yet again. Fifth time. Can you consider it? I just cannot,” he said. “Ya’ll never ever really did let go of that Overlook Colombia thing… I survived it all. When you slide, get up.”
“Colombia has gotten around that, much too. They’ve forgiven me. Properly, not all of them. The cartel is continue to trippin’ a small bit,” he quipped.
When he declared Overlook Colombia Gabriela Tafur Náder was generating it into the leading 20, she teased him, inquiring if he was absolutely sure he read through the effects correctly.
But the contest later discovered Harvey was appropriate all alongside.
“Miss Universe Philippines Gazini Ganados is the winner of the Skip Universe 2019 Countrywide Costume level of competition,” a rep for the levels of competition reported. “As section of the broadcast, we also featured Miss Universe Malaysia Shweta Sekhon’s national costume. Overlook Sekhon wasn’t informed we’d be saying Philippines very first, so she jumped the gun when Mr. Harvey started out with that information. Mr. Harvey built a joke of it so as not to embarrass her, but no mistakes about the nationwide costume winner were made by him, the prompter or creation.”
