Miss Universe 2023: Top 5 question and answer segment transcript

The Top 5 finalists of the 72nd Miss Universe final competition were each given 30 seconds to answer questions directly from the members of the selection committee.

Whoever wins Miss Universe 2023 will be representing the Miss Universe Organization for an entire year traveling the world as an ambassador and using the platform to advance the greater good.

The nerve-racking question and answer round is their opportunity to prove to the panel they have what it takes to do the Miss Universe job.

Here's how they answer the questions:

Iris Mittenaera: How would you use the Miss Universe platform to promote global gender equality?

Miss Australia, Moraya Wilson: "I would use the Miss Universe platform to push a message. I think this community is strong and when we bond together we can create changes and when it comes to gender equality, when we use our voice and we use our power to make a change that's when real movement happens."

Janelle Commissiong: If you win tonight, what would you bring to the Miss Universe brand?

Miss Puerto Rico, Karla Guilfú Acevedo: I would use that opportunity to show the world the relevance of beauty queens nowadays. I would use my activism on regarding mental health and telling the world how it is important that if we use our voice, if we take up space, if we are courageous enough to be ourselves in this world, I would use the platform to reach and be that."

Halima Aden: What qualities and values guide you as a leader and role model for others?

Miss Nicaragua, Sheynnis Palacios: The quality that has inspired me and has inspired millions of women and girls today, is humility and to be able to appreciate all of the little things, because that's where the most valuable thing is, the essence of being human.

Avani Gregg: If you could speak to a room full of students about online bullying what would you say?

Miss Thailand, Anntonia Porsild: "I would say to not listen to what people have to say because in the end everyone is entitled to their own opinion but it is up to us on how we react to it. Use our voice to stand up for what is right and be the change that we want to see in the world by leading by example. Don't listen to the hate because it doesn't shape us but what shapes us is how we get back up and how we move forward from that."

Mario Bautista: If this was your last day on earth, how would you live it?

Miss Colombia, Camila Avella: "I am already living it because I'm here, i'm breaking stereotypes, being a woman, being a mother, is to leave history, a legacy, something that I want to transmit to women, mothers, and children."

Who do you think gave the best answer?
