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

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.'"
