Las Vegas: Miss Universe 2015 beauty pageant was held at Las Vegas, USA on December 21, 2015, at 5:30 am IST. The crown went to Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach. Miss USA, Olivia Jordan was the 2nd runner-up and Miss Colombia, Ariadna Guiterrez, was the 1st runner-up. India’s Urvashi Rautela battled it out with over 80 contestants across the globe.
Beauty pageants are places where grace and poise are meant to rule, but a decidedly awkward moment stole the show Sunday. Miss Universe 2015 host Steve Harvey wrongfully declared Miss Colombia the winner when she was the first runner-up.
“I’d like to apologize wholeheartedly to Miss Colombia & Miss Philippines for my huge mistake. I feel terrible,” Harvey said in a tweet that was re-tweeted more than 51,000 times.
