The pageant host, USA comedian Steve Harvey, announced that Miss Colombia Adriana Gutierrez won the coveted crown, but moments later corrected his mistake, giving the title to Miss Philippines.

The controversy regarding the crowing of Miss Philippines as the new Miss Universe 2015 pageant arose when host Steve Harvey made an epic error with the announcement of the victor.

Colombia's president said Monday he was shocked when Miss Colombia won and then immediately lost the Miss Universe crown, and said as far as he was concerned she remained the victor. "I have to apologize", he said, while standing next to Arevalo. "I'm very sorry, I did not take the crown from her and I wish her well", she said.

The Miss Universe contestant from the Philippines is this year's victor, but for one brief moment Sunday evening, it appeared as if it might be a repeat win for Colombia. "For me she was robbed as the real victor", Riek said to Missosology in a video.

A visibly stunned Wurtzbach walked to the front of the stage, her eyes wide in disbelief.

"Nobody feels worse than me", Harvey told reporters after the show.

Manny Pacquiao has hailed the victory of the Philippines at the Miss Universe pageant as his nation's revenge for the fighter's defeat by Floyd Mayweather. "I'm sorry to say that". "Miss Universe 2015 is Philippines".

Radulovic said that the candidates were confused on what was happening onstage, but knew that Harvey made a mistake when he returned on the stage.
