Carvajal finishes top-10 at Miss Universe 2018

December 17, 2018

Representing the country as Miss Costa Rica, Natalia Carvajal finished among the top 10 of Sunday’s Miss Universe 2018.

And Carvajal was a hit with viewers after sharing a quip with Steve Harvey, the award-winning host who accidentally announced the wrong winner at the 2015 Miss Universe pageant.

“You host a TV show in your country. From one host to another, do you have any tips for me?” Harvey asked Carvajal on Sunday.

The Tica complimented Harvey before burying the dagger on international television.

“Come closer, because I don’t want everyone to hear,” she said into the mic. “If they ever give you a really, really, really important envelope, try to read carefully, okay?”

Steve responded in character: “So y’all thought that was damn funny? You thought that was funny? Y’all just won’t let it go, huh?

“[…] When you make a mistake, get up and keep going. I’m still here, baby!”

Watch the full exchange below:

Catriona Gray, Miss Philippines, was ultimately crowned Miss Universe 2018, but Carvajal’s performance won’t soon be forgotten.
