Steve Harvey instantly became the butt of jokes after committing the worst possible gaffe during the 2015 Miss Universe pageant.

The TV personality (Steve Harvey talk show, Family Feud) mistakenly declared Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez as the competition's victor, only having to take it back and crown the rightful winner, now-reigning Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach of the Philippines.


Although apparently, he had been a false target of public scorn this whole time.

In a recent interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Harvey revealed the real story and culprit behind his wrong announcement. You'd be surprised to learn that he actually "saved" the whole proceeding the Organization, Ariadna, Pia, and all from greater embarrassment.


Hope it won't be the same case come January 30 next year, the date for the 65th edition of Miss Universe, where Harvey gets the chance to redeem himself as one of the presenters.
