This year, the question at Miss Universe is similar to that of Miss International and Miss World: Why should you win as Miss Universe?
Just when you thought the question-and-answer torment was over for the Top 3, they had to answer that question in the new format of the show.
“To be a Miss Universe is both an honor and a responsibility. If I were to be Miss Universe, I will use my voice to influence the youth and I will raise awareness to certain causes like HIV awareness that is timely and relevant to my country, which is the Philippines. I want to show the world, the universe, rather, that I am confidently beautiful with a heart,” said Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach.
While she chose to carry an advocacy, USA and Colombia said they fit what the beauty contest is looking for.
In the new format, the judges’ scores, the online vote, and the vote from the 77 other eliminated candidates would be factored in. IDL
