Pageant host, Steve Harvey, entertained the audience by making fun of his own mistake in last year’s event in Las Vegas. Harvey mistakenly announced that the 64th Miss Universe winner was Colombia’s Ariadna Gutierrez instead of Pia Wurtzbach of the Philippines.

Before the announcement of the 65th Miss Universe winner, Wurtzbach handed Harvey a pair of reading glasses. 😉
