The card said "first runner up" was Miss Columbia, he reveals, sheepishly, after Miss Colombia receives the crown and the all the applause. Watch the slow unfolding of realization on the face of Miss Philippines and how long it takes for them to get around to moving the crown to the right head.

Poor Steve Harvey. But I wouldn't have paid any attention to the Miss Universe contest if this hadn't happened. Now that I am paying attention, I'm thinking about Donald Trump. Because all subjects lead to Donald Trump.
ADDED: Trump extricated himself from the Miss Universe Pageant last September after NBC broke off its joint venture with the organization because of something Trump said about illegal immigration. Trump bought up NBC's 50% stake and, 3 days later, sold it all to WME/IMG. So this year's massive screw-up was the first post-Trump Miss Universe Pageant.
