It all went a bit, Pete Tong, at Miss Universe 2019 this weekend. Models falling on the catwalk, organisers falling out with crew members and to top it all off, Steve Harvey once again got a winner confused with someone else! Thankfully Shweta showed her Punjabi roots and grabbed the Mic and corrected the situation.
The television host accidentally named the wrong winner for the best national costume category and everyone simultaneously winced. The 62-year-old announced Miss Philippines as the winner when the actual winner, Miss Malaysia, stood beside him. Everyone in the audience probably thought: ‘Oh God, not again.’ The real winner, Shweta Kaur Sekhon, quickly grabbed the microphone from Steve and corrected him.
Shweta made sure to prematurely fix the blunder before it went too far. After realising his mistake, Steve explained: ‘Let me explain something to you. I just read that in the teleprompter. ‘Y’all got to quit doing this to me. I can read. Now, they are trying to fix it now. See? This is what they did to me back in 2015, played me short like that.’
