Nakangiting inamin ni Christi Lynn McGarry na dismayado siya na first runner-up lang sa Miss Intercontinental 2015 ang kanyang napagwagian nitong nakaraang December 18 sa Germany.
Ang kandidata mula sa Russia ang nakakuha ng titulo.
Nasa bansa na mula sa Germany si Christi Lynn at humarap siya sa ilang miyembro ng media, kasama ang PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), sa Pool Bar ng Novotel Hotel, sa Araneta Center, Cubao, Quezon City, kahapon, January 11.
Aniya, "I would be lying to you if I said I wasn't disappointed.
"But overall, I can say I'm really contented with my performance. I really, really did my best 100 percent.
"But I'm disappointed but I'm still happy that I know I made the Philippines proud, so that to me means more."
Ano na ang plano niya ngayong tapos na ang pageant? Balak ba niyang pumasok sa showbiz?
Sagot ni Christi Lynn, "For now, since the pageant just finished, I just wanna enjoy my time with my family, with my friends.
"But definitely, looking forward for the future.
"I never really expected or plan to become an artista or anything of some sort.
"I just want to pursue my modelling career here professionally since I have the height for it.
"And then maybe looking forward to a career in hosting, for example like Joey Mead who's an idol of mine."

Today we mourn and celebrate the life of my Uncle Ino- Many called him Tatay Ino because he was a father figure to many, including my mom. He lived a long, strong and fulfilled life, and never ceased to smile, leaving us at the age of 98. Many were in attendance today, and I can only hope I made him proud before he passed. R.I.P. Gavino Fabian Landrito, hoping you can watch and protect over our family for the years to come:
