Comedian Steve Harvey must not have learned his lesson. After crowning the wrong winner in 2015’s Miss Universe pageant, show insiders claim they have reason to believe the live production will go off the rails again this year.
Pageant insiders reportedly told Radar Online, “Rehearsals were yesterday, today and tomorrow. However, everyone knows that he is not coming. He did not go [in 2015] either,” they claim. “He does not show up to rehearsals — he still only shows up for show day. He has not done a single rehearsal.”
Steve Harvey mistaking announced 2015’s first runner up, Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez, as the overall winner of the pageant instead of rightfully crowning Miss Philippines, Pia Wurtzbach. While Miss Colombia began to celebrate, Harvey interjected saying, “I have to apologize” before revealing who the actual winner was.
Harvey quickly took to social media apologizing for the mix up, but his recent actions leave many wondering what’ll happen when the show airs on Sunday (Nov. 26).
