Is Steve Harvey going to host Miss Universe next year following that cringing moment?
It's been all over the news on how awkward it was at the pageant last Sunday when Harvey was hosting and announced the wrong winner. He declared Miss Colombia as the reign of the title only to come back on stage and apologize for a huge mistake- the winner was actually Miss Philippines.
Harvey continued to speak after the unpleasant moment by letting everyone know that the contestants should not be held responsible.
In a report from Us Weekly on Tuesday, chief content officer of WME IMG Mark Shapiro told the Jim Rome Show that despite Harvey's flub on stage, he would still support him coming back to do it again.
"He was funny, he was informative, he's high energy, he's got a great following," Shapiro said about Harvey. "I definitely want him back, and I would hate to see him not come back. He's going to want a shot to redeem himself."
Harvey's mistake led to a good haul of backlash, but Shapiro is hopeful that everyone will let it go.
"The world forgives, the world forgets," the content officer said. "It could happen to the best of us. He was so well intended, and he's such a good guy, and it was really such a mistake that I hope people don't hold this over him other than just for a good laugh and let it pass."
