Last year, Steve Harvey made the embarrassing mistake of crowing Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez Miss Universe 2015 over the rightful winner, Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach. This year, Wurtzbach made certain that history wouldn't repeat itself by pranking Harvey with a tongue-in-cheek gift that helped him read the correct name off the card this time.
Before announcing this year's winner, Wurtzbach came on stage in a brilliant royal blue ball gown and handed Harvey a pair of thick, framed reading glasses. Revenge is sweet, and so is Pia Wurzbach.
"Thank you so much Pia," Harvey said as the crowd roared with laughter. "A year late, but thank you."
It is great that Wurtzbach can look back on Harvey's embarrassing snafu and laugh, because at the time the mistake caused a lot of ire for the former Miss Universe. Mashable reports that Wurtzbach was on the receiving end of a lot of hate from many angry Colombians who blamed her for Harvey's infamous botch. She now takes the messy experience in stride, even jokingly thanking Steve Harvey for making her "the most popular Miss Universe."
In the end, Miss France won the coveted title of Miss Universe, and Miss Haiti snagged the first runner-up position. Viewers breathed a collective sigh of relief as Harvey signed off the show by saying, "I'm Steve Harvey and I got it right!"
