Miss Universe 2015 had Miss Philippines, Pia Wurtzbach emerging victorious after a long journey and was crowned on Sunday night at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. The event was hosted by comedian Steve Harvey and actress Roselyn Sanchez. Meanwhile, during the live telecast, Harvey made a wrong announcement by declaring Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez as Miss Universe 2015 and Miss Philippines as the first runner-up.
However, when Gutierrez was already crowned and she started hovering in the ecstasy of delight, Harvey suddenly was forced to apologize on behalf of the organizers. The 26-year-old German-Filipina actress Wurtzbach won, leaving behind Miss Columbia and Miss USA.
According to The Sydney Morning Herald, this scene was the repetition of a similar dramatic live show in the history of Australian live television, when “Australia’s Next Top Model” host, Sarah Murdoch (daughter-in-law of Australian media mogul Rupert Murdoch) declared the wrong winner of the reality show in 2010.
While Kelsey Martinovich had already been crowned champion and she commenced her acceptance speech, Murdoch interrupted her and said “sorry” as she made a monumental mistake. She instantly announced the real winner Amanda Ware and Martinovich became the runner-up in the sixth cycle of Australia’s Next Top Model. Check the video below that will take you back to one of the most awkward moments that still exists in the web.

In the year 2012, we had encountered another awkward incident that took place with Miss Venezuela at a Donald Trump-produced Televised Beauty Pageant, although there was no such wrong announcement that mainly happened in 2010 and 2015. The Hollywood Reporter’s news reported that Irene Esser gave a confused, awkward and uneasy going answer during the question-and-answer session of NBC’s broadcast, while the judges included stalwarts like Pablo Sandoval (San Francisco Giants), Cee Lo Green (American rapper and businessman), and Masaharu Morimoto (Iron Chef).
“If you could make a new law, what would it be? And explain why,” Esser was asked.
“I think that any leys [Spanish for “laws”] there are in Constitution or in life, are already made. I think that we should have, uh, a straight way to go in our similar, or, eh, in our lives as is this. For example, I’m a surfer, and I think that the best wave that I can take is the wave that I wait for it. So please do our only, eh, law that we can do. Thank you Vegas!” Esser replied.
