Steve Harvey can’t live down his Miss Universe mistake, announcing the wrong winner at the 2015 pageant. So, when Harvey asked Miss Costa Rica, Natalia Carvajal, what advice she could give a fellow television personality, she told him to read envelopes carefully.
“If they ever give you a really, really, really important envelope, try to read carefully, OK?” Carvajal told Harvery during Sunday night’s live airing of the Miss Universer 2018 on Fox.
The audience cheered as Harvey stared into the distance.
“So you all thought that was that d— funny?” Harvey joked. “Y’all just won’t let it go, huh?
Steve Harvey: “From one host to another, do you have any advice for me?”
Miss Costa Rica: “If they ever give you a really really REALLY important envelope, read it carefully okay?”

In the 2015 edition of the Miss Universe, Harvey announced Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutiérrez, as the winner, and she was crowned. But Harvey read the envelope wrong and had to apologize.
Miss Colombia was the first runner-up. Miss Philippines, Pia Wurtzbach, was the official winner. Miss Colombiahad to hand over her crown to Miss Philippines, and Harvey called it a “horrible mistake.”
