In a cringe worth mix-up, the wrong Miss Universe was crowned by host Steve Harvey during the competition finale.
Gambling news is flooded with videos of the awkward beauty pageant finale, in which the wrong Miss Universe was crowned for three minutes before Harvey realized his mistake and revealed the rightful winner.
Harvey named Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez, as the winner after he misread the results card. When he noticed he’d said the wrong name, he quickly corrected himself, saying that Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, was the true Miss Universe 2015.
Those who bet on Miss Universe are no doubt furious over Harvey’s monumental mistake. At least the Miss Colombia bettors are, as they won’t be receiving a payout even if their choice was named. However, the Miss Universe blunder is good news for people who put money on Miss Philippines.
Like most competitions, many online gambling sites offer betting lines for Miss Universe, with one of the most popular being Paddy Power. After Harvey’s embarrassing misreading, we’re betting that ‘announcing the wrong name’ will be an option on the site for Miss Universe 2016!
