The victor of the pageant will inherit the crown from the reigning Miss Universe, Pia Wurtzbach, who steps down after being the Philippines' first titlist in the beauty pageant in 43 years.

Miss Haiti Raquel Pelissier was named first runner-up, and Miss Colombia Andrea Tovar was second runner-up. "Having open borders allows us to travel more through the world and to find out more about what's out there in the world", she said.

Frenchwoman Iris Mittenaere was crowned on Monday in the Philippines as the victor of the 65th Miss Universe pageant.

"If there's one thing I've learned in life, it's when you make a mistake you just gotta keep on moving forward!" he joked. In 2009, it became the first country to achieve consecutive wins at the Miss Universe pageant, when 2008 victor Dayana Mendoza crowned her successor Stefania Fernandez. "Can't let this happen again - you will not leave the Philippines".

"This is the best show we've ever done", Miss Universe Organization (MUO) president Paula Shugart said.

"Steve, I never got to thank you but thank you for making me the most popular Miss Universe", Wurtzbach told Harvey at the opening of show.

Hosting the Miss Universe pageant in the country will positively affect the country's tourism industry, the Department of Tourism said previously.

While most Filipinos are calling on everyone to throw their support for the country's bet, quite a number of netizens also expressed their fears about Maxine not being able to do well in the Question and Answer competition. Reigning champion Pia Wurtzbach from the Philippines wasn't the final name called, but that was because host Steve Harvey read the wrong name.

"It's me. I'm back", he said to cheers from the audience.
