What physical appearance that you want to change to be beautiful? And what is the most important principle that you hold?

I am really grateful to God because He had created me, I am satisfied with the body and the way God had given to me. I wouldn't change any single thing of my body. I considered my self as a woman blessed with inner beauty. I got many great life principles from my family, and I will hold that principle for my whole life.

Very intelligent, woman for women

What a wonderful answer! I saw the video and was amazed by the way she said it. It was as if she was already prepared, it came so naturally to her. She deserved to win.

However, if I recall correctly, she said women should CELEBRATE their femininity.

7 Lara Dutta of India - Miss Universe 2000 Lara Dutta Bhupathi is an Indian actress, model and beauty queen who was crowned Miss Intercontinental 1997 and Miss Universe 2000. She was the second woman from India to be crowned Miss Universe, and has been the only delegate from India to win the crown since.

Question: Right now there is a protest going on right outside here calling the Miss Universe Pageant disrespectful of women. Convince them they are wrong.

Lara's Answer: "I think pageant� I think pageants like the Miss Universe pageant gives us young women a platform to foray in the fields that we want to and forge ahead, be it entrepreneurship, be it the armed force, be it politics. It gives us a platform to voice our choices and opinions, and makes us strong, independent that we are today. "

Lara Dutta is a perfect blend of "Beauty with Brains" and "Beauty with Purpose". She is intelligent, witty, a fantastic orator, exudes confidence and carries herself with poise. You want to believe everything she says and she knew she has the title in her bag because she really has a presence. The best person to represent India in an International Pageant and make India and its citizens proud. Bravo to Lara Dutta for her commendable answers and presence.

Its is the best answer ever. India needs Beauty Queens like Lara Dutta, as she was Intelligent, Smart and Beautiful.

The utmost outright standout with the best answer in a final question in Miss Universe history. Along being beautiful, she possesed so much confidence and class in this interview. They rythym and tone of her answer flowed like it was a question she knew will be asked and have memorised her answer... But no... it was spontaneous and she nailed it to perfection. I notice there are so many points she emphasised in her answer too - 1. MU is a platform 2. examples of the many fields one can undertake in this platform - armed forces, politics, entrepreneurship. 3. The benefits this platform can do for anyone (voice our choices and opinions)- it is where we are able to express ourselves and reach out to others or be the one who speakout for others 4. Finally, through achieving all these, we can become mindful, opinionated, independent and be a powerful and contributing citizens for your country and for the Universe alike - Undisputedly, the best answer in MU history for me!

8 Gabriela Isler of Venezuela - Miss Universe 2013

The best Miss Universe ever

9 Sushmita Sen of India - Miss Universe 1994

Question: What is the essence of being a woman?

Sushmita's Answer: "Just being a woman is God's gift that all of us must appreciate. The origin of a child is a mother, and is a woman. She shows a man what sharing, caring and loving is all about. That is the essence of a woman. "

The Contenders

11 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach of Philippines - Miss Universe 2015

I think her answer is one of the best answers, if not the best, I heard delivered in a prestigious beauty pageant. Especially when she answered the final question 'why should you be the next miss universe? "

Pia Wurtzbach's answer was just perfect:

"To be Miss Universe is both an honor and a responsibility. If I would be Miss Universe I would use my voice to influence the youth and raise awareness to causes like HIV awareness that is timely and relevant to my country, the Philippines. I want to show the world, the universe rather, that I am confidently beautiful with a heart."

She knows very well why she is competing for the crown. She answered with intelligence, grace, beauty and elegance. She is truly regal! She is Miss Universe!


Question: Earlier this year, there was a controversy in Philippines about the United States reopening a base in your country. Do you think the United States should have a military presence in your country?

Answer: I think that the United States and the Philippines have always had a good relationship with each other. We were colonized by the Americans and we have their culture and our traditions even up to this day and I think that we're very welcoming with the Americans. And I don't see any problem with that at all.



To be a Miss Universe is both an honor and responsibility. If I were to be Miss Universe, I will use my voice to influence the youth and I would raise awareness to certain causes like HIV awareness that is timely and relevant to my country which is the Philippines. I want to show the world, the universe rather, that I am confidently beautiful with a heart. Thank you.

Sorry to say this but, Miss Colombia's answer is too much what the attributes of a "Perfect" woman has, while with Miss USA, her answer is confident and came from her brain and heart but, she don't need to shout things that easily. What Miss Philippines, Pia, which is from my country is... she answers not only from her brain, not only from her heart, but she answered honestly with the people's heart. While she answers, she shows elegance, beauty and grace which a Miss Universe should have.

Her answer for both the top 5 and 3 questions was outstanding! Her answers contributes to everyone, she doesn't sound self-centered, and she truly deserved to win the Miss Universe 2015...

12 Dayana Mendoza of Venezuela - Miss Universe 2008

Question: Which have it easier in life: men or women?

Dayana's Answer: "God made us to share and have differences, but big differences? � I don't think so. The difference is that men think, they think that the faster way to go to a point is to go straight, and women know that the faster way to go to a point is go the curves and fix every curls".


She might not have fluency in English but her risk was totally worth it. Her answer, no doubt was the best one through out that evening and I really love that answer.

She gave a strong answer. Great job, Dayana!

13 Olivia Culpo of USA - Miss Universe 2012

Q: What is something that you have done, that you will never do again?

A: First I'd like to start off by saying that every experience, no matter what it is, good or bad, you'll learn from it. That's just life, but something I've done that I've probably regretted would be picking on my siblings growing up because you appreciate them so much more when you're older, you get closer with your family. Everybody fights with their siblings, right?! But I don't regret it.

She answered naturally and the answer led her to glorious victory.

I think she didn't really deserve the crown I am an American but I am honest Philippines really deserve the crown

I'm Filipino but I think Miss USA deserves the crown because it's from the heart. She answered it very well as what the question requires her to

Philippines deserves it! usa didn't

14 Shamcey Supsup of Philippines - Miss Universe 2011

She's beautiful and no other women participating in that girls MU Pageant didn't get as high of scores as she did for dress and swim suit!

The best woman represent the Philippines in MU pageant.

Her answer came from her heart... Best Candidate

Shes completely give the best she could be... S shes really smart...

15 Brook Mahealani Lee of USA - Miss Universe 1997

Question: If there were no rules in your life for one day and you could be outrageous, what would you do?

Brook's Answer: "I would eat everything in the world. You do not understand. I will eat everything twice. "

The best so far because sometimes the line of questioning is different, and mostly answers are already fake just to go with the right answer. we know what is right and what is wrong. But sometimes, you have the right to twist the questions, sometimes you can argue or dis agree with it. This is the best answer for me with those silly questions, they we're answered with a silly answer as well... Laugh out loud

That is the smartest answer ever! Outrageous = something that means you are doing excessively that the common wisdom will judge unappropriate ; a pageant girl has a sculptural body and weight fluctuations is something she had to handle in a healthy way.

Moreover, her answer was so funny that she entertained all the audience! I think she can do politics. And I remember that she gave the answer very fastly within 1 or 2 seconds. I love this girl! Not the prettiest MU but the smartest.

She should be number 1 of your top 10

Very quirky answer, and so correct. Most women who come to compete in such pageants, would have thought a billion times over before answering this, but she had no qualms. Brilliant, witty and bold. Worth becoming a Miss Universe.

16 Renae Ayris of Australia - Miss Universe 2012

Question: "As someone who might be winning a modelling contract, how would you feel if you were told to lose weight or risk losing an assignment? "

Renae's Answer: "Thank you for that question. I feel really comfortable in the way I feel and I think that's really important. If someone told me that I'm overweight I would completely ignore it. As long as I'm feeling good within myself then that's all that matters. Thank you."

I love the way she deliver her answer... FIERCE



17 Venus Raj of Philippines - Miss Universe 2010

Very hard question to answer in a short time, although the question are so familiar it will alarm our mind and think about the past.

She is a major major strong contender!

What you when the moon si dark

That was a great answer. !

18 Pia Wurtzbach of Philippines - Miss Universe 2015

United States re-establishing military bases in the country:

"I think that the US and Philippines have always had a good relationship with each other. We were colonized by the Americans and we have their culture and traditions even up to this day. I think we are very welcoming with the Americans and I don't see any problem with that at all."

Why she should be Miss Universe:

"To be a Miss Universe is an honor and a responsibility. If I were to be Miss Universe, I will use my voice to influence the youth and I would raise awareness to certain causes like HIV awareness to certain causes like HIV awareness that is timely and relevant to my country, which is the Philippines. I want to show the world ��" the universe rather ��" that I am confidently beautiful with a heart."

She was very confident to win in that day while answering the question

I like her answer. She values her opinion.

19 Riyo Mori of Japan - Miss Universe 2007

Question: What is the one lesson you learned as a child that still affects your life today?

Riyo's Answer: "I have been dancing since I was a child. I grew up among many students and teachers. I learned to always be happy, patient and positive. That is also what I want to teach to the next generation. Thank you. "

Awesome and intelligent!

I love Riyo Mori. She is so smart and intelligent. I always watch her Miss Japan 2007 and Miss Universe 2007 competitions.

This is what kind of answer I want. The answer to each question doesn't need to be so direct and matter-of-factly. In my opinion an answer should come from the heart, simple but can relate to your experience. That is why I love her answer. Because her answer showed modesty and doesn't show off to better the other candidates answers.

It's short wuth only 6 words. But her answer is great for me because she said it honestly.

23 Stefania Fernandez of Venezuela - Miss Universe 2009

Question: In many part of the world obstacle still exists that impede women from achieving their goals in some corporations. What can women do to overcome this?

Stefania's Answer: "I believe that nowadays we women have overcome many obstacles and I do believe that we have reached the same level as man have. We must realize that there are no longer any barriers amongst us. "
