After announcing the wrong winner during this year’s annual Miss Universe pageant, Steve Harvey will have a chance to redeem himself.
According to Deadline.com, the comedian-television personality has received an invitation to return as the host of next year’s Miss Universe pageant. Sources close to production also confirmed to ET that Harvey signed a multi-year contract to host future Miss Universe pageants days before Sunday’s event.
Mark Shapiro, Chief Content Officer of WME (the media agency that owns the Miss Universe Organization) supports having Harvey return.
“The man is wildly successful in all different walks of life, with books and radio and television and so. I definitely want him back, and I would hate to see him not come back,” Shapiro said on Monday during an interview on “The Jim Rome Show.” “He’s going to want a shot to redeem himself. Look, the world forgives, the world forgets. It could happen to the best of us. He was so well intended, and he’s such a good guy, and it was really such a mistake that I hope people don’t hold this over him other than for just a good laugh and let it pass.”
