Steve Harvey and Miss Colombia haven’t had a bad enough couple of days. Now here comes celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, who served as a Miss Universe judge, to pile on!
“There’s a reason – many reasons – she didn’t win,” Hilton said during an interview with Good Morning America. “Miss Philippines, who we all voted for, deserves to win.”
Hilton gave a behind-the-scenes perspective of the wild night.
“My first thought was wow, this was rigged,” Hilton said of the moment when Steve Harvey named the wrong winner. “All of us voted for (Miss Philippines).”
At first Hilton thought it might have been
a publicity stunt. He made reference to reports that Harvey missed a rehearsal and didn’t run through the finale.
“He made a mistake but he also could have been tired and hung over,” Hilton said. “He just didn’t do his job well, period.”
Harvey bolted right after the controversial moment, he added.
“He disappeared as soon as everything went down,” Hilton said. “It was crazy for us in the theater. People were booing and screaming.”
