He’s back! Steve Harvey is set to return as the 2018 Miss Universe host. On Tuesday, FOX reported that the Emmy-winning comedian will make that big appearance in Bangkok, Thailand, where the three-hour rivalry will go down on December 16.
In 2015, Harvey, 61, famously crowned the wrong queen. After at first reporting Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez Arevalo, as the night’s winner, Harvey admitted he made a mistake and Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurzbach, was in reality the champ.
“Nobody feels worse about this than me,” the “Family Feud” host told reporters after the mix-up. Alongside Steve, reigning Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, from South Africa, will likewise restore this year to crown her successor.
“The Miss Universe competition provides women from all walks of life and all corners of the globe the opportunity to represent their countries and share their ambitions, perspectives and personal experiences on an international stage,” Nel-Peters said in a statement.
“Becoming Miss Universe changed the course of my life,” she added. “And I look forward to seeing which amazing woman will benefit next!”
