Global 2010: Blunder Down Under! 'Australia's Next Top Model' Host Announces Wrong Winner on Live Finale!

Monday night's finale of "Australia's Next Top Model" included one of the most cringe-worthy moments of the year, when host Sarah Murdoch announced the wrong name of the winner!

During the live TV finale, Murdoch announced 19-year-old Kelsey Martinovich was the new catwalk queen, defeating runner-up Amanda Ware — and proceeded to let Kelsey celebrate and even give a brief victory speech.

"I just want to thank the runners-up, they've been amazing and all the girls for keeping me on my toes," Kelsey beamed. "Ah, this is crazy!"

However, moments later, Murdoch — who married News Corp. media mogul Rupert Murdoch's son, Lachlan, in 1999 — became quiet and a shocked look came over her face as she listened to producers in her ear tell her she said the wrong name.

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

An equally stunned Amanda was caught off guard by the mix up and when given the stage to accept her title, she could only say "Really, thanks guys!" with a big smile on her face.
