In an interview by ABS-CBN News, Wurtzbach said she intentionally went out of her way to look for Medina on stage to comfort her.

She said, Medina was really under a lot of pressure as Filipinos were hoping for back-to-back Miss Universe titles. “She wasn’t crying, she was actually okay… She was really worried about making everybody proud,” she added.
