During the beginning of the program, host Steve Harvey asked Pia, “What’s it’s like to be on the other side?”
To which she answered, “Well, it’s great to be back here in Vegas and in Planet Hollywood where it all happened. In 2015, not so long ago, I was exactly there and now, I’m a judge. It’s interesting.”
“And you know what, Steve? I feel like it’s harder to be a judge than to be a Miss Universe. Because all of the ladies, they’re all incredible and it’s really hard to pick,” Pia added.
Poking fun at the Miss Universe 2015 coronation fiasco, Steve said, “You think it’s hard to be a judge? You ought to try hosting this thing… Everybody’s waiting on the big moment at the end, see if I get it right.”
Pia jokingly asked, “Did you bring your glasses?”
