Steve Harvey Creates Trust Issues With Miss Universe 2015
It seems ever year we have some sort of blunder on live television. It’s almost expected. It is live television after all. Well, last night there was another one. Family Feud host Steve Harvey hosted the Miss Universe 2015 Pageant last night, and let’s just say, things didn’t go exactly planned. The winner that Steve Harvey announced on live television during the show was… actually… not the winner. Steve originally announced the winner to be Miss Colombia. After Miss Colombia, all smiles and cheerful, received her crown, sash, and flowers, Steve returned to the stage to apologize and announce that he had indeed made an error reading the winner card.
Miss Philippines was actually the winner. Confused faces, booing, and chaos ensued. Though Miss Colombia looked disheartened (who wouldn’t be after finding out they’re actually runner-up?), Twitter and the Internet naturally exploded into a furious rage. Some people posted memes comparing Steve’s live TV blunder to Kanye and Taylor Swift during the Video Music Awards years ago, while others just poked fun with goofy memes about the incident. Some people even started saying they now have “trust issues” with Steve Harvey.
Steve, though, took to Twitter to immediately apologize for his mistake. Although at first he mispelled both Colombia and Philippines (in a tweet that is now deleted), he has been very regretful for his error. That’s okay, Steve. We still love you!
Plus, this isn’t the first time that live television has seen an error. It happens every day in the news room, and every year during a major award show. Remember when John Travolta mispronounced Idina Menzel’s name as ‘Adele Dazeem‘ at the Oscars? That’s almost unforgettable. And we cannot forget even more than ten years ago the mishap that was Ashlee Simpson. Remember? She was caught lipsyncing on Saturday Night Live, one of the biggest mess-ups in all of live TV history.
So, whether you love or hate Steve Harvey, just know that people make mistakes and that’s no reason to be hard on them! The most important take-away: we will never stop watching Family Feud.
