'Australia's Next Top Model' Host Announces Wrong Winner on Live Finale!

Yesterday, September 28, 2010, one of the huge crack incidents of this year happened. It was the moment when 'Australia's Next Top Model' host Sarah Murdoch announced the wrong name of the winner.

The finale of the hit Australian television show was aired live to millions of viewers. Sarah Murdoch announced that top model-hopeful Kelsey Martinovich was the new queen of the ramp defeating runner-up Amanda Ware.

A few moments later after Martinovich shared her short victory speech, Murdoch became silent and got shocked. She eagerly listened to her earphones where the producers communicated her; telling she said the wrong name.

"Oh my God. I don't know what to say right now. I'm feeling a bit sick about this," a stunned Murdoch said on the air as the entire audience and the contestants went silent. "I'm so sorry about this. Oh my God. I don't know what to say. This is a complete accident, I'm so sorry. It's Amanda. It was fed to me wrong." Murdoch astonishingly said.

"This is what happens when you have live TV folks, I'm so sorry, this is insane." Murdoch added.

Martinovich graciously accepted her defeat after the correction Murdoch made.

"It has been so close and the lead kept changing," Murdoch tried to explain. "It was literally down to a couple of votes and we kept going back and forwards, back and forwards, and we ended up with Amanda as our winner."

The show ended with Ware walking on the ramp while credits rolled. Due to the error, producers offered to send both Amanda and Kelsey to New York to meet with Elite Model Management and also offered Kelsey a $25,000 consolation prize.
