Sa ulat ni Mario Dumaual para sa TV Patrol, pareho ni Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach, alam rin ni Miss Universe 1973 Margie Moran kung gaano kaimportante ang homecoming sa kanilang pagkapanalo. “Just like my time, the most important part is coming home because that's when you really feel the triumph. To me that was the highlight of the whole winning—making the Filipinos proud, that was the biggest accomplishment.”
Dinala ni Margie ang kanyang rhinestone-studded crown at scepter para sa pictorial nila ni Pia para sa Philippine Daily Inquirer. Pinagmalaki rin naman ni Pia ang kanyang gem-studded crown. Aniya, “This is actually inspired by the NY skyline, ( . . . ) you have the diamonds, sapphires, and the blue topaz…”
Ang kaibahan lang pag-aari ni Margie ang napanalunang korona, habang ipinahiram lang kay Pia ang kanyang blue and silver crown.
Pero payo rin ni Margie kay Pia, na ang pagiging Miss Universe ay higit pa sa korona at engrandeng homecoming. “A lot of people have admired me all these years not only because I just won, but because of what I did after. Miss Universe is just one year, but it’s really what you do after that and what you make out of yourself and how you enrich your knowledge about things about life.”
