    The comedian will co-host the competition with model Ashley Graham.

    Viewer's of last year's pageant can hardly forget Harvey's gaffe, when he incorrectly announced first runner-up Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutiérrez, as the pageant winner. The mistake wasn't picked up until after Gutierrez had received her crown and sash, and enjoyed a brief moment's celebration.

    Harvey apologized for the error and said the winner was actually Miss Philippines, Pia Wurtzbach. The flub quickly went viral, dominating social media outlets.

    The competition will air live Jan. 29th on FOX from the Philippines.
