VIDEO: Miss Universe host names wrong woman as the winner and things get very awkward

Joe Harrington

Steve Harvey should avoid Colombia for a while.

Miss Philippines was crowned Miss Universe 2015 in Las Vegas last night, but her win has been totally overshadowed by a massive cock-up from host Steve Harvey.

Harvey made the mistake of announcing Ariadna Gutierrez Arevalo from Colombia as the winner even though she was actually the first runner-up.

Arevalo had the crown on her head and was taking in the applause from the crowd when Harvey interuppted and owned up to the error. Watch the horror here.
