Steve Harvey, an institution of non-prime-time television, conducted Sunday night's Miss Universe pageant on Fox largely without incident until incorrectly announcing and crowning Miss Colombia instead of Miss Philippines.

A Miss Colombia has been crowned Miss Universe five times, making them tied with Miss Brazils for third overall behind Miss Venezuelas and Miss USAs.
