Steve Harvey Not Hosting Miss Universe 2016?

Miss universe Pageant has always been a very competitive event where different beauties of the world participate in. It is the search for the one with beauty and brain. And when something like the incident in Miss Universe 2015 happens, it surely isn’t appreciated.

According to the sources, Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte does not want Steve Harvey to host the Pageant 2016. And his decision is purely driven by what happened last time. What happened was Harvey misread his cue card at the end of the Miss Universe Pageant 2015 and announced Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutiérrez, as the winner and Miss Philippines, Pia Wurtzbach, as first runner-up. Gutierrez was already crowned before Harvey realized his mistake. Even though Harvey took the full responsibility of his mistake but it certainly upset a lot of people including President Rodrigo Duterte.


In a recent press conference, Tourism secretary Wanda Teo spoke about Duterte’s concern-

“He cannot host. I am going to talk to the Miss Universe that he cannot host so that is my problem,” Duterte told Teo (translated by CNN Philippines). “I don’t want him to be the host of the Miss Universe.”

However due to a five year contract, Harvey will continue to host the pageant. But as compensation, Teo has thought of a solution that they might add a Filipina to co-host.

Steve even invited both Wurtzbach and Gutiérrez to his talk show and apologized to both of them and also denied all reports of him drinking the night of the event.

Miss Universe 2016 airs Jan. 30, 2017.
