After 'Big Mistake', Miss Philippines Crowned Miss Universe 2015

Las Vegas; Dec.21:  Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach of the Philippines was announced as the Miss Universe 2015, after the ceremony's host Steve Harvey admitted to making a big mistake by mixing up the names of the winners.

Harvey says it was his mistake and that he would take responsibility for not reading the card correctly that named contestant Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach this year's winner and Colombia the first runner-up.

A mystified Wurtzbach appeared stunned as she walked to the front of the stage alongside the crown-wearing Arevalo before last year's Miss Universe from Colombia removed the crown and placed it on Wurtzbach's head instead.

The competition started with women representing 80 countries between the ages of 19 and 27. For the first time, viewers at home weighed in, with their votes being tallied in addition to four in-person celebrity judges.

The top three finalists were Miss Universe USA Olivia Jordon, Miss Universe Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez and Miss Universe Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach.
