The Top 5 finalist opened up about her experience at the Miss Universe and her future plans. Speaking in a Zoom conference organized by Voltaire Tayag of the Miss Universe Philippines Organization, Bea said she is proud of Harnaaz Sandhu of India for winning the coveted crown. The Cebuana beauty queen even said she invited Harnaaz to visit the Philippines.

Bea added, “I invited her to visit the Philippines soon. And she invited us to visit India, too! I told her I am proud of our group."

Bea also admitted that Harnaaz really worked hard for the crown. She is also determined, making her worthy to be the winner.

“She has strong beliefs, she has the dedication, and she works very hard. At her age, pagnahihirapan siya, she tries her best. She’s a very strong woman, and that’s what makes her a standout," Bea said.

Meanwhile, Bea has nothing but good words for fellow Filipina and Miss Universe judge Marian Rivera. She admitted that she couldn't keep her smile off her face whenever she saw Marian cheer for her.

“Kapag nakikita ko yung cheer ni Marian, talagang natutuwa ako at nawawala ako. Kahit talagang bawal sa mga judge ang mag cheer for their country delegates, nagcheer pa rin talaga siya for me. Sinabi niya hindi raw nawawala yung smile ko during the preliminaries. That’s the real reason,” she said.

Bea also revealed how her nerves almost got the best of her during the Top 5's Q & A segment because she didn't expect a political question. But was glad that she was able to deliver the answer she had on her mind.

"I was quite surprised because I noticed most of the questions were about women empowerment and children's rights. Hindi ko po inexpect na ang question na mapupunta sa akin might possibly be political. So nagda-dalawang isip ako on how to answer the question. Inisip ko lang kung ano yung core values ko."

"I believe I did well it's just that I got really nervous kaya yung delivery ko hindi gaanong magaling. Ninerbyos talaga ako sa Q&A pero nasabi ko naman yung gusto kong sabihin," she said.

In the end, Bea is still proud of her Top 5 finish. She is bound for Manila today, December 15 and couldn't wait to spend time with her family.

"Finally, I will see my family again. I will celebrate Christmas with them," she remarked.
