Unlike other beauty queens who had their farewell message recorded, Wurtzbach stood on stage and delivered her message on live audience.

“In this moment, I’d like to express my sincerest gratitude to the people who helped me win Miss Universe. If it weren’t for you, I would have not achieved this humble achievement,” she said.

“To my successor, just remember to give your best… You have to proudly remember that you are wearing that sash that says ‘Philippines.'”

“Tonight, it’s the beginning of a journey for a confidently beautiful Filipina. Mabuhay ang gandang Filipina. Mabuhay ang Filipina. Mabuhay tayong lahat!”
