Through "Miss Universe: The Truth," Steve Harvey hopes to put a closure to all that has happened because of that one single mistake that made a very big impact on all involved, specifically him, Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez and Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach.

On the first part of the event, which had an "Ask Steve" segment,  Steve answered questions from the audience, most of which are tough ones. Someone asked, "... I know you've come out and you said that it wasn't a publicity stunt but it did bring a lot of attention to the show and as well as you. So what do you say to the people that don't believe that?"

For his answer, Steve Harvey laughed hard and in effect, said he couldn't do something like that to himself, especially when serious matters like people and paparazzi camping outside his house, and his family even getting death threats, are already involved. But the lighter side of it, was that people from other countries like Italy, Dubai and Malaysia wrote good things about him. Then, he mentioned ... "The Philippines love (sic) me," to which, the audience applauded.

Another lady from the audience asked "... So, we already know you took full fault for this whole Miss Universe thing, but do you think the producers take any responsibility? The best part of Steve's reply was when he said, "she (his wife Marjorie) put something on instagram that said 'I'm so proud of my husband.' That's all ... I needed that. While the world was making jokes and cracking, I just needed her to be okay with me."
