Steve Harvey is not going to let Terrence J. Jenkins make the same mistake he did.
In the opening for Miss USA, the comedian poked fun at his mistake heard around the world (literally) – announcing the wrong winner at the Miss Universe pageant this year.
In fact, his advice includes avoiding the word “Colombia” all together.
Not District of Columbia. Not Columbus, Ohio. Nothing that sounds even remotely close.
“And the winner is … Miss Colombia?” Terrence J. says before Harvey immediately swats the card out of his hand.
“What’d I just tell you? I said, ’Don’t say Miss Colombia,’” Harvey tells Terrence J. “I don’t care if they hand you a card. They handed me a card. I said, ‘When they hand you the card, don’t say Miss Colombia.’ Listen to me, Terrence. Don’t say it.”
