It became one of the most memorable yet most awkward moment for everybody; some were deadly disappointed while others had a night out of happiness.
According to Variety, as Gutirrez was having her time of her life waving and blowing kisses to the crowd, Harvey suddenly took the stage once again and announced that he made a mistake.
“Okay, folks. I have to apologize,” he told the excited crowd.
He then paused for a while when the crowd started shouting, indicating that Miss Philippines seems to be the real winner which in fact, the truth!
“The first runner-up is Colombia,” Harvey announced. “Miss Universe 2015 is Miss Philippines!”
Mail Online reported that Miss Columbia has been wiping her tears as she was crowned with a $30,000 blue diamond and topaz, however, her joyous celebration was then replaced by a dreadful shocked with Harvey’s announcement.
As the host announced the winner, the camera span to Wurtzbach who looked obviously shocked over the fact that she is the winner and not Gutierrez.

The 58-year-old host and comedienne apologized for his honest mistake and acknowledged his full responsibility for the terrible error he did.
“Listen folks. Let me take control over this,” Harvey explained. “This is exactly what’s on the card,” he said while holding the card and showing it to the crowd.
“I will take responsibility for this. It was my mistake, it was on the card. Horrible mistake but the right thing I can it to you right here. The first runner-up is Miss Columbia. It was my mistake. Still a great night,” he explained.
