Back in 2015 Steve Harvey immediately became under fire when he announced that Miss Colombia won the pageant, but then revealed he misread the card and the actual winner was Miss Philippines. The mix up was so controversial that it’s been used in jokes for years. According to Yahoo news, this recent mix up was no joke.In 2015, production wasn’t to blame, but this time, it has been said that production in this incident deserve to take some of the blame for this year’s mistake. As Harvey was announcing the winner, Miss Philippines was shown on the screen and stage. However, the woman standing next to him was clearly a different person in a very different costume.
