Miss Colombia ... wait, make that Miss Philippines crowned Miss Universe

The Miss Universe contestant from the Philippines is this year’s winner, but for one brief moment Sunday evening it appeared as if it might be a repeat win for Colombia.

Colombian contestant Ariadna Gutierrez Arevalo was already wearing the crown as this year’s Miss Universe winner when host Steve Harvey returned to apologize.

Harvey says it was his mistake and that he would take responsibility for not reading the card correctly that named contestant Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach this year’s winner and Colombia the first runner-up.
