After the shocking mistake during the final moments of the Miss Universe 2015 competition where the wrong winner had been crowned, Miss Australia has spoken up and revealed that she and the other candidates noticed the mistake before the whole world found out.

In an embarrassing, possibly career-ending blunder, Steve Harvey announced that Miss Colombia was the winner of the Miss Universe 2015 beauty pageant, when in fact, she was supposed to be the first runner up.

According to Miss Australia, after Miss Colombia had been declared the pageant winner, she and the other candidates who had already been eliminated were watching from the sidelines, ready to congratulate the new Miss Universe 2015. However, they were then shocked by what they saw on the teleprompter.

“We actually saw on the teleprompter, it said ‘Philippines, please take your first walk as Miss Universe’ after Colombia was crowned,” Miss Australia shares, adding “We were looking at each other thinking ‘What are we reading?’ and then Steve Harvey made the walk down the runway and we could all see the worried look on his face and we knew what happened.”

Miss Australia goes on to share how horrible it was to watch it all happen, saying “My heart goes out to both of the girls; I mean, for Colombia, that feeling of winning and you could see she was crying of joy, and then getting that taken away… but at the same time, for Philippines, she didn’t really have that amazing victory, I mean the girls, we ran to Colombia first to consolidate her, so she didn’t have that congratulatory walk that the Miss Universe normally gets.”

Hopefully Miss Australia’s testimony will at least put to rest the theory that Steve Harvey had been slipped a fake cue card declaring Miss Philippines as the winner when it really was supposed to be Miss Colombia. We have it straight from the other contestants who saw the teleprompter; Miss Philippines was the rightful winner of the Miss Universe 2015 title.
