It pays to stay focused in situations like this.
Ok, now is really the time to stop giving Steve Harvey so much grief about the Miss Universe 2015 gaffe. Sure, he announced the wrong winner and left a poor Miss Colombia crownless and a little humiliated but we all make mistakes. In fact, Harvey is not the only presenter to have messed up results in a reality show.
Steve Harvey is not the only one who's made mistakes
Let us not forget that just over a month ago Olly Murs received backlash after announcing the wrong result on 'The X Factor'. Well, technically it was the correct result, but he prematurely announced that Monica Michael was going home after miscounting the judge's votes. Oops! At least Caroline Flack was there to correct things.

Cedric The Entertainer will begin hosting Who Wants To Be A Millionaire in the fall.
Cedric The Entertainer is the new host of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, and will replace Meredith Vieira in the fall. Cedric, who also stars in TV Land sitcom ‘The Soul Man’ was part of the famous Kings Of Comedy tour with Steve Harvey, D.L Hughley and the late Bernie Mac.
“I’m truly looking forward to hosting ‘Millionaire,’ ” Cedric said in a statement. “The show is a modern-day game show giant, and the team at Disney-ABC has been great at putting the right elements together over 11 seasons. I’m excited to entertain all those who watch and play as season 12 launches … It’s going to be a good time every day!” The show, which began in 1999 with original host Regis Philbin, now airs at 10am weekdays on the WFTV-Channel 9. Viera has hosted the syndicated version fo the show since its debut in 2002, winning two Daytime Emmys for her hosting.
Hiring Cedric The Entertainer appears to be the show’s way of clawing back viewers, after losing some 10% from last year. It now pulls in around 3.2 million, less than half the audience of the rebounding Family Feud, hosted by Cedric’s old pal Steve Harvey. Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! Draw 11 million and 9.6 million respectively, though still take up early-evening slots.
A Steve Harvey breakdown followed what can only be described as a heart-warming, surprise call live on his birthday.
The Family Feud host and comedian broke down in tears after receiving a phone call he wasn't expecting from an old friend on his talk show, Ask Steve. Harvey was informed by his producers that he had a surprise call waiting on the line, and after explaining that he didn't really like surprised, seemingly broke into tears as soon as he saw the face of his mystery caller. "This is Rich Liss from Orlando, Fla.," Liss said. "Do you still love me, baby?" Eventually - after moments of disbelief and pure emotion, Harvey answered Liss' question, saying, "I love you, man." As it turns out, Liss and his wife Becky were there to help Harvey out of a hole when he was a 26-year-old struggling comedian running a carpet cleaning business. "I didn't have nothing," Harvey said, choking back the tears. "These people took me in."
Having accumulated an $11,000 bill that Liss never made him pay for, Harvey vowed to get his saviour back to his show. "I got money now, Rich," he said. "I'm going to fly a plane out to Orlando to pick up you and Becky. I'm going to fly you out to the show. I've been looking for you for years, man. You guys bailed me out, and I never forgot it."
In Defence Of Bey: Music fans recoiled with indignation this week after it was speculated Beyonce had the audacity to pre-record a live performance for President Obama's inauguration in Washington D.C. We'd point you towards the technical difficulties of singing to 800,000 on the sizeable Capitol Hill, and can think of far worse lip-syncing flubs.
Aww, Steve: YouTube fizzed into action this week with a very special video of everyone's favourite TV host Steve Harvey. The Family Feud star was surprised by an old friend, leading him to choke back the tears. We won't say too much, just check it out!
A TV surprise saw comedian Steve Harvey breakdown in tears on the long-running game show Family Feud this week. The legendary American comedian showed his emotional side after taking an unexpected call during the show’s taping as part of his birthday special (he turned 56 on January 17, 2013).
Producers cut to a call via satellite, with a man appearing on-screen and wishing Harvey a happy birthday. It caused Harvey to whisper “Aw, man” before pacing the stage. “This is Rich Liss from Orlando, Florida,” the man said. “Do you still love me, baby?” Harvey was seen bending over, choking back sobs and trying to compose himself for a few moments. “Hey, man,” he finally said, before adding, “I love you.”
It turns out Rich and his wife Becky were early supporters of Harvey when he was an aspiring comedian running a fledging carpet cleaning business. They stuck by him while he tried to break into the tough comedy world, something Harvey has never forgotten, “I was struggling…I didn't have nothing. And these people... took me in.”
You can always rely on Cedric The Entertainer to get the red-carpet rocking ahead of an industry bash. Real name Cedric Antonio Kyles, the American actor and comedian showed up at the 2013 BET Honors last week to really liven things up! The Steve Harvey Show alum looked in his element posing for photographers and chatting with fellow guests.
It was a typical grand entrance from the funny-man, though the waiting press pack were perhaps more keen to snap Avatar star Laz Alonso, who also attended the event, and Anthony Anderson from All About The Andersons. Other high profile arrivals included R&B and soul producers Jimmy Jam and Terry lewis, BET chairman Debra Lee and Ava Coleman, Whose Line Is It Anyway? comedian Wayne Brady and WNBA player Lisa Leslie and husband MICHAEL LOCKWOOD.

These talents, of course, provide voices to an array of talking animals in the live action heartwarmer Racing Stripes, a sort of stripy Seabiscuit about an orphaned zebra with a horse's heart for racing. The misled mare, aptly nicknamed Stripes, wants desperately to compete with rival horses at the Kentucky Open - the Bluegrass State's natural landscapes contributing an exquisite backdrop to the film's conventional action. Along the way, the zebra is coached by a widowed father (Bruce Greenwood), his dedicated daughter (Hayden Panettiere), and a stable of talking animals including a Shetland pony (Hoffman), a goat (Goldberg), a rooster (Jeff Foxworthy), and two manure-craving flies named Buzz (Steve Harvey) and Scuzz (David Spade).
