    Been seeing this everywhere today.. I had no idea people where so concerned about the quality of the Miss Universe hosting.

    Is everyone secretly a big fan of this?

    Whatever the reason, your avatar perfectly reflects my reaction when I've watched it the first time. Really awkward to watch.

    The only reason I know personally is because of people at work, I'm a bit surprised by the reaction myself.

    Wording the card "The first runner up is Colombia" without letting him read the card in advance is just asking for this to happen, since people can easily misread something if they are rushed or nervous.
    I always hated the wording on that anyway. Call it SECOND PLACE like most other things do and you would never have this problem. Also I find it funny since it draws to that age old "first loser" as second place even more since they call you first runner up.

    I do love how sweet the USA girl seemed to be when the camera showed her trying to tell the Philippines girl that she had won. Like she seemed genuinely excited for her.

    Also, I don't blame Steve, honest mistake. Honestly I really like him as a person anyway and he's what Bill Cosby tried to be(sans the whole sexual assault accusations although I think he's had one before) as a wholesome black comedian.

    I don't watch it or really care about it but I think its definitely a big deal for the people involved.

    I know im not into it but imagine being miss Columbia. You grew up doing beauty pageants and this is your life. You work hard to promote yourself and get named miss Columbia. You get into the miss universe competition and make it through a few rounds (I have no idea how the pageant goes or even if there are rounds but whatever). You are in the final 3. They just announced the 2nd runner up. Its just you and one other girl. the moment you have been waiting your whole life is finally here, and holy shit, you just got named miss universe. You are so happy you are crying and then steve Harvey comes back out. He looks upset and says he made a mistake. What is he talking about? Oh, they take the crown off your head and give it to someone else as its announced that you aren't miss universe, just the first runner up...

    While I think the whole thing is ridiculous, I can empathize with how she feels and I think that's why its such a popular story atm.

    I like steve Harvey but I cant help but to think hes somewhat of a racist. Every family feud is a white/Hispanic family vs a black family. Idk about you, but black families aren't 50% of the population. Also every commercial I see him in is 100% or at least 99% black people. I get that hes trying to be a "wholesome black comedian" but I think hes too focused on the "black" part.

    Oh no, I definitely 100% get that. I would be devastated if I was in her position, I was just surprised about so many people care about it, BUT, I guess when you put it that way at the end, it makes sense. Empathy is a strong motivator after all!

    "Runner-up" is used instead of placing because they didn't place. Just like in politics, the losing candidate in a bi-partisan system is not "Second Place". They didn't win, period.

    2nd/3rd place either get something, or rank in another system (such as sports), or other various things. Runner-ups are simply being 'noted', but are effectively 'the loser'.

    It was bound to happen sometime. The fact that this is getting headline news is yet another of the thousands of indictments on how idiotic our "news" media acts.

    That was pretty terrible wording on the card. Sorry Steve, honest mistake, but one the world will never let you live down.

    You think that there is a black family every episode is a coincidence? I don't think its 100% up to him but I have to imagine that he has a say in it.

    Being this mad that youre ugly lol. You know the contestants do more than just looking good right? They do community service and are involved in other things. They aren't just your basic bimbo at the club.

    i find this awfully arrogant to assume that we are the only race in the universe. miss earth would be a more appropriate title.
    r.i.p. alleria. 1997-2017. blizzard ruined alleria forever. blizz assassinated alleria's character and appearance.
    i will never forgive you for this blizzard.
