ABS-CBN revealed what Pia Wurtzbach will be doing when her reign ends. Wurtzbach admitted that the things in her to-do list are rather simple. These things include taking naps and catching up with her family and friends.
“I’ll take a nap after the coronation,” Wurtzbach said, “Then invite some of my family and friends so we can catch up. We haven’t spent a lot of time with each other recently.”
Wurtzbach also said that she will sell the dresses she wore during her reign as Miss Universe. The earned money will go to the indigents of Cagayan de Oro, her hometown. Paula Shugart, the chief of Miss Universe Organization, claimed that the garage sale was Wurtzbach’s idea and that the organization will support it.
“I didn’t get to have a homecoming in Cagayan de Oro,” the beauty queen said, “So the money will go to them.”

After Wurtzbach’s revelation, she then teased Steve Harvey, “Steve, thank you for making me the most popular Miss Universe.” Harvey replied, “Thank you for making me the most popular host of Miss Universe.”
The slogan for this year’s Miss Universe, Confidently Beautiful, was taken after Wurtzbach’s answer during the Q and A for the Top 3.
