Miss Universe Pageant Mixes Up Crown
There was a surprising finish to this year's Miss Universe pageant.
At first, it looked as if Colombia's contestant had won.
But it turned out the show's host announced the wrong winner.
Steve Harvey read the name of the second-place finisher, Ariadna Gutierrez Arevalo, as the new Miss Universe.
She and Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach of Philippines, who thought she had finished second, hugged.
Arevalo accepted the crown and waved to the crowd, thinking she was the winner.
Harvey then realized he made a mistake. "I have to apologize," he said, while standing next to Arevalo.
Then he awarded the crown to the real winner. The crown went to Wurtzbach.
Wurtzbach looked shocked. Arevalo looked confused. The audience gasped and screamed.
It was an awkward moment for everyone.
Harvey said he misread the card he had been given.
The episode led to a long night of confusion, hurt feelings and apologies.
"Nobody feels worse than me," Harvey told reporters after the show.
Harvey wrote about the mistake on Twitter, saying, "I'd like to apologize wholeheartedly to Miss Colombia & Miss Philippines for my huge mistake. I feel terrible."
But that was only after he deleted an original message that had spelled both countries' names incorrectly.
Politicians from both Colombia and Philippines congratulated their contestants.
The on-stage slip-up was not the only thing that clouded the pageant.
Outside of the Planet Hollywood hotel in Las Vegas where the pageant took place, a car drove onto the sidewalk and killed one person and injured 37 others.
I'm Dan Friedell.

然而就在这时，主持人哈维意识到自己看错了名单 。他尴尬地站在阿雷瓦洛身边，对观众说道“对不起” 。
紧接着，他宣布此次冠军的真正得主 。也就是排名第二的菲律宾佳丽渥茲巴赫 。
渥茲巴赫听到这个消息很是震惊 。而阿雷瓦洛也是困惑不已 。现场观众目瞪口呆，一片哗然 。
事后，哈维在自己的推特上发文称：“由于我的疏忽，特向哥伦比亚小姐和菲律宾小姐致歉 。真的很抱歉 。”
