Earlier in the show, Pia took a final turn as Miss Universe onstage, thanking her family, friends, the Miss Universe Organization, her Miss Universe sisters, and her fans for their support in the past year. 

“To the next Miss Universe, fasten your seatbelt. At the end of your reign, you will grown in confidence, maturity, and faith. For me, the title was a dream come true, but the work continues. Kababayan, maraming salamat po. Mahal ko kayo. (I love you al.) Thank you for everything,” she said.
