President Rodrigo Duterte does not want Steve Harvey to host the Miss Universe pageant again, which will be held in the country next year.
During the Miss Universe 2015 pageant, Harvey mistakenly named Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez as the new Miss Universe.
The 64-year-old host was swiftly forgiven by Wurtzbach. She told the host to ease up and move forward.
Meanwhile, Pres Duterte wants Harvey out of the pageant.
In a press briefing in Malacañang, Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo said that the president reacted negatively when he knew that Harvey would still be the host of the said pageant.
He wanted to talk to the Miss Universe organizers that Harvey should not be the emcee.
Teo suggested to the president to have a Filipino co-host but
chances of Harvey being dropped as host are slim, considering he has a five-year contract with the Miss Universe Organisation.
