While the world continues to criticize Miss Universe host Steve Harvey for mistakenly crowning the wrong winner, the Christian comedian insists God brought him to the beauty pageant for a reason.
"Look at where God brought me! #MissUniverse2015," Harvey tweeted before the event started.
Harvey, the 58-year-old TV talk show and radio host, suffered a mishap in front of a live audience when he announced Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutiérrez Arévalo, as Miss Universe when she was supposed to be the runner up. After Miss Colombia was crowned, Harvey realized his mistake and told the world that Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach was actually the winner.
The host apologized for the flub immediately after realizing his mistake and even took to social media to fess up amid scrutiny and mockery.
"I want to apologize emphatically to Miss (Philippines) and (Miss Colombia). This was a terribly honest human mistake and I am so regretful," Harvey tweeted. "Secondly, I'd like to apologize to the viewers that I disappointed as well. Again it was an honest mistake."
