After many years of presenting the Miss Universe competition, Steve Harvey will not be doing so this year. He made quite an influence on the pageant, frequently producing controversy for the organization. At the 2015 pageant, Harvey’s craziest moment came when he incorrectly proclaimed the winner.
Steve Harvey‘s five-year run as Miss Universe presenter has come to an end. There was little doubt that he had some outrageous on-stage antics during his reign. After Donald Trump sold the Miss Universe Organization to IMG in 2015 in the wake of his controversial comments during his first presidential campaign, the firm entered into a five-year contract with Harvey and Fox.
Many of Harvey’s on-stage antics and, more notably, his massive gaffe at the Miss Universe pageant, was reported by the media. When his contract expired this year, Miss Universe made history by appointing Anne Jakapong Jakrajutatip as its new owner for the first time. During an interview with Variety, Miss Universe Organization CEO Amy Emmerich said she was committed to “make sure we led with a female lens this next go-around.”

“It was a rare opportunity to be able to kind of restart in a whole new place,” she added. Olivia Culpo, the reigning Miss Universe, and Jeannine Mai Jenkins, a star on “The Real,” will serve as co-hosts for this year’s program, which will premiere on Saturday. Catriona Gray, the 2018 winner of the Miss Universe title, and Zuri Hall, a journalist for “Access Hollywood,” will provide commentary from the wings.
Steve Harvey, who has hosted the Miss Universe pageant for many years, will not be hosting this year’s event. He had a considerable impact on the pageant, often at the expense of generating controversy for the organizers.
