Video: Steve Harvey Takes Blame Again For Miss Universe Flub

Steve Harvey's month-long apology tour for misreading the Miss Universe winner's name continues. This ABC interview is the latest.

"I read the teleprompter, and clearly I read what it said to read," Harvey told ABC's Today Show correspondent Natalie Morales. "And then I followed the direct instruction in my ear. We went straight from 'And the new 2015 Miss Universe is...' and when they said read the card, all the cards in rehearsal never had any of that on there, except the name."

None of the rehearsal cards had the name of the runner-up.

Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutiérre, was also there for the interview. "It was the happiest 4-and-half minutes of my life," she said, but asking that while it was the best it was also "the worst."
