Isa si Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach sa mga nanghinayang na hindi umabot ang pambato ng Pilipinas na si Michelle Dee sa Miss Universe 2023 Top 5.
Ang Top 5 finalists ng pageant ang nabigyan ng pagkakataong ipakita ang kanilang galing sa question-and-answer portion.
Umabot si Michelle hanggang Top 10 ng pageant.
Sa isang video ni Pia kagabi, November 19, 2023, naglabas siya ng saloobin tungkol sa resulta ng Miss Universe 2023 kunsaan ang nagwagi ay si Miss Nicaragua Sheynnis Palacios.
Ayon kay Pia, kabilang si Sheynnis sa best bets niya sa pageant.
“I also was rooting for the winner actually. And I think that she’s very deserving,” pag-amin ni Pia.
Pero diin din niya, “Although I’m still wondering what could have been if Michelle had made it into the Top 5 and had the chance to answer a few questons.
“Coz she’s really good at Q&A. You wonder, you think of what could have been.
“But, yeah, I dunno. I’m still trying to absorb things. Kayo ba?”
