Steve Harvey to return as Miss Universe 2016 host?
Steve Harvey will reportedly return as the host for Miss Universe 2016, despite his controversial flub at this year’s pageant. Harvey declared the wrong winner of the Miss Universe 2015.
Though he corrected the mistake after a few minutes, the incident became a major embarrassment for the pageant organisers and also for the host.
In an interview on The Jim Rome Show, Mark Shapiro, Chief Content Officer at WME | IMG, which acquired Miss Universe Organisation earlier this year, said that he wanted Harvey to return to the beauty pageant next year as a host.
Shapiro said the 58-year-old comedian was “very remorseful” about the goof-up and that was “absolutely” welcome back to host the event again.
The Chief Content Office said that Harvey “did a great job.
He was funny, he was informative, he’s high energy, he’s got a great following.”
