Miss Colombia is ready to face off with Steve Harvey.

Ariadna Gutierrez will appear on The Steve Harvey Show in an interview expected to air the week of January 18th. It will mark the first time Harvey and the Miss Universe runner-up have come face-to-face publicly since that cringeworthy pageant mishap.

While hosting the Miss Universe pageant on Dec. 20, Harvey mistakenly announced Miss Colombia as the winner -- only to reveal moments later that the title actually belonged to Miss Philippines, Pia Wurtzbach.

"I've had a chance to talk to Miss Philippines. I've talked to all the pageant people. I've talked to people backstage. Even me and the director had a long talk, but I haven't been able to reach out and talk to Miss Colombia," Harvey admitted on Tuesday’s episode of his eponymous talk show. "Now, have I tried? Yes, but have gotten not a response."

Meanwhile, the new Miss Universe – aka Miss Philippines – recently opened up to ET about the gaffe. "I hope that she realizes that this will open doors for her," Pia said of Ariadna. "I think that she will go far."
