Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach and Top 6 Miss Universe 2016 finalist Maxine Medina were snapped in a now-viral hug photo on stage after the 65th Miss Universe competition. As you know, Maxine was not able to win a back-to-back title for the Philippines.

But we all want to know: What exactly did Pia tell Maxine during those final moments of the pageant?

We found out about the exchange that happened via ABS-CBN

"Alam mo 'yun, hinahanap ko siya because alam ko 'yung tumatakbo sa isip niya eh. Alam ko eh. I've been through that before. You know what, she was actually okay. She wasn't crying. I hugged her, I congratulated her. Sabi ko sa kanya, 'Mars, ang maganda dito, walang kakalat na video sa YouTube na nagkamali ka sa Q and A', kasi 'yun 'yung pinaka-inaalala niya, na parang 'Pia, baka ma-bash ako.' Sabi ko, 'Walang mambabash sa'yo kasi hindi ka nagkamali.'"
