    Good post, thanks for the read Sister Destee. The one thing good about this, is that Steve corrected himself really quickly. Had his recovery been much later than it was, it would have been devastating all the way round. But he's a big boy and can handle the incoming criticism.

    This is the from the link in the OP

    Was Steve Harvey’s Miss Universe mix-up a publicity stunt? Conspiracy theories begin.

    I don't believe it was a publicity stunt. If they wanted publicity, there were a million better ways than this one. But, one thing they did get right is that if this didn't happen nobody would be caring about who won Miss Universe. But, this won't spark an interest that will carry over to next years show.

    Survey Says…Steve ****** Up. But It Is and Isn’t His Fault. (It’s His Fault.)

    [​IMG]

    Did you see that cue card?

    [​IMG]

    Why wouldn’t you make the winner HUGE! Why was the wording and info on the card so small? Who sanctioned that ****?

    I’m guessing this is what happened: Steve opens the card and sees that Miss USA is the 2nd runner up. At this point, he announces and realizes he has two winners left, knows its Philippines and Colombia, and commits it to memory. Except when it came time to announce, he transposed the winners in his head causing the mistake heard ’round the world. That’s his bad. Bad Steve!

    But why wasn’t it MORE clear. I realize I’m giving him more benefit of the doubt than is probably necessary. Clearly he can read. The winner was indicated in a different location on the card than the Runner’s-Up. But seriously, did you see how small the font was on that card? I’m not saying Steve didn’t mess up on his own, what I am saying is that they probably could have done more to make it apparent. The winner font seemed smaller than the other two. Why isn’t that **** in 34-point Comic Sans???

    LOL....

    I'm not a fan of Steve Harvey, since his decision to partner in the project with Paula Deena... (which fell through--- no surprise there)

    But, I gotta give him props, I love the combo he's wearing in the pic.
