Steve Harvey will return to host this year’s Miss Universe pageant, after botching it last time by announcing the wrong winner.
It wasn’t just a slip of the tongue, he announced Miss Colombia as the winner . . . she got the crown, sash, and a bouquet of flowers, and then celebrated for a few moments before Steve awkwardly cut in and tried to explain that she WASN’T the winner, and that it was actually Miss Philippines.
The pageant may not be thrilled about it, but they locked him into a multi-year contract BEFORE his blunder . . . and they’re paying him more money than they’ve ever paid a host, so they’re basically stuck with him.
The Miss Universe pageant airs live on Sunday, January 29th.
Gorgeous plus size model ASHLEY GRAHAM will serve as the backstage host.
