After Steve Harvey’s embarrassing gaffe during the Miss Universe 2015 coronation where he crowned the wrong contestant, a lot of viewers speculated that this may end up being a career-ending mistake for the host. It turns out, however, that Steve Harvey is doing just fine, and will even be returning to host next year’s pageant!

Steve Harvey has received a lot of hate and shame since mistakenly announcing that Miss Colombia was the new Miss Universe, instead of Miss Philippines, who was the actual winner. Miss Colombia had already been crowned before the host’s mistake was revealed, causing a huge amount of humiliation for everyone involved.

Having signed a contract with the Miss Universe Organization just days before the show where he messed up big time aired, Steve Harvey and the pageant are bound together for at least the next three years. The contract is in effect for a minimum of three years, and up to six or seven years.

In addition, information has come to light that Steve Harvey is, in fact, the highest paid Miss Universe host ever, although exact figures were not disclosed.

While you might expect the people behind the Miss Universe Organization to be less than thrilled to be obligated to have Harvey back for at least the next three years, that actually isn’t the case. Mark Shapiro, who owns the organization’s parent company WME IMG, has said “I definitely want him back. I would hate to see him not come back. He’s going to want a shot to redeem himself.”

So, despite the Miss Universe host’s grave mistake during the live show, he will definitely be returning to host the pageant again next year. We’re sure that he has learned from his error and will be much more careful when announcing the winner next year.
