Colombia wins Miss Universe

Who Won Miss Universe 2015? Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez, Crowned As Winner!


Disaster on Miss Universe 2015 as Steve Harvey announces the WRONG winner - and then Miss Colombia has to take off her crown and give it to Miss Philippines on live television. 
It was a heartbreak and horror as the crown needs to be removed from Miss Colombia who'd been crowned Miss Universe for only 45 seconds. 

Just as Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez was blowing kisses and waving to her adoring fans she was informed, on live television, host Steve Harvey had gotten the results wrong. 
Harvey then revealed it was was actually Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, who had just been declared first runner up only minutes before, that was the true winner of Miss Universe 2015.

The live telecast ended after the crown was placed on Wurtzbach's head.



It was a terribly an honest human mistake!



Miss Universe 2015 Host Steve Harvey announced wrong winner!

“I have to apologize,” Harvey said after walking back onstage at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino while Gutierrez who’d already donned the Miss Universe crown and sash took her first walk as the winner. “The first runner-up is Colombia.” 

Cut to Wurtzbach, who’d been standing in the dark on stage with the other runners-up, looking shocked as she realized she’d won.

“I will take responsibility for this,” a chagrined Harvey told the screaming crowd as he held up the card from which he’d been reading. “It was my mistake… I can show it to you right here." ( While he is showing the result on cam ).

"Still a great night. Please don’t hold it against the…
