Joke's on you, Steve Harvey!

In an epic exchange of words on Sunday night's Miss Universe 2018 pageant, contestant Miss Costa Rica called out the host for his infamous 2015 flub where he misread the name of the pageant's winner.

Shown in the video above, the hilarious conversation took place after Harvey, 61, announced to the crowd that the Central American beauty, Natalia Carvajal, worked as a TV host in her home country. He then asked her to provide some advice for him given their similar professions.

"The outfit is fine, the smile is always great," she told Harvey before showing off her sense of humor.

"If they ever give you like, a, really, really, really important envelope, try to read carefully, ok?" Miss Costa Rica continued, sending the crowd into laughter.

Harvey took the joke in stride.

"So ya'll thought that was damn funny? You thought that was funny? Ya'll just won't let it go huh?" he said to the audience.

"I love you," Carvajal told the Family Feud host.

"I love you, too. I love everybody," Harvey responded. "When you make a mistake you keep going. I'm still here baby! I love you! Thank you Costa Rica!"

As Radar readers know, Harvey's major flub went down into TV history three years ago when he mistakenly announced the Miss Universe pageant's first runner-up, Miss Colombia, as the overall winner instead of Miss Philippines.

Ariadna Gutierrez, Miss Colombia, wore the crown for a few moments before Harvey cut in and apologized, announcing the real winner was actually Miss Phillippines, Pia Wurtzbach.
