Steve Harvey will likely return to host the Miss Universe pageant in 2016, despite the mix-up at the end of the 2015 pageant, according to People magazine and Entertainment Tonight.

Harvey mistakenly announced Miss Colombia, the first runner-up, as Miss Universe instead of the actual winner, Miss Philippines. Harvey said he misread his cue card.

According to People, the show’s producer, Mark Shapiro, said he wants Harvey to return and have a chance to redeem himself.

Entertainment Tonight reported that Harvey signed a multi-year deal to host the pageant before this year’s event.
