I didn't see much of a fight put up by the one that was first one crowned who then had to give it up. I watched that video. If it was a publicity stunt, I thought it was tasteless. If it was a true accident, the switch was glossed over as if it was just an "oops" moment. Overall, they drag out the contest and then rush that final moment of crowning and screw it up?

I didn't see it but I bet a lot of people who otherwise would never have heard of or seen Miss Colombia will  see and remember her. No doubt she will be on talk shows etc.. If nothing else im sure it helped her career.

    Was it intentional, to bring more attention to the Miss Universe Pageant?  Steve Harvey has been on TV for years... it is hard to believe that he could make such a mistake. 

    Although, he (or his assistant) posted an apology to his Twitter account, wherein he misspelled both Philippines and Colombia (since corrected).

Sad and uncomfortable mistake. I immediatley equated the situation to real estate and wondered how I would feel if I had two good offers, the sellers accepted one, but I called the wrong agent and told them that the sellers accepted their offer. Then realized I should have called the other agent and told them that the sellers accepted their offer. Now I have to call the first agent back ( after they probably already told their clients that their offer was accepted), and tell that agent that I made a mistake, and the sellers actually accepted the other buyers offer.

Good morning Lise. I did not, but have seen a couple of clips about the craziness. If that was a publicity stunt, it was classless.

i did see it, and very awkward at the end.  Thinking Steve Harvey won't be asked back again, if he cannot read 3 names in the correct order.   Feel bad for both the girls.

That was very awkward but the ladies handled it with class and showed that both were top notch candidates. Steve Harvey may never get to host this Contest again.
