Itinuturing ni Catriona Gray na "best Christmas gift ever" niya para sa 104 milyong kababayan ang kanyang pagkapanalo bilang Miss Universe 2018.

Sa unang panayam ni Catriona bilang bagong Miss Universe, tinanong siya kung ano ang naramdaman niya nang tinawag ng host na si Steve Harvey ang "Philippines!" bilang bagong Miss Universe.

Tugon niya, “Wow! You second-guess, 'Did he say Philippines?'

“But when you hear the crowd—and of course so many Filipinos are so passionate and they’re all here—and to hear the word [Philippines], ‘Oh, it’s me.’

“It just passed so fast. I haven’t even wrapped my mind around it.”

Ano ang una niyang gagawin ngayong kinoronahan na siya bilang bagong Miss Universe?

Sagot ng ng 24-year old model-singer, “I just wanna hug my parents.

“I just saw them at the back there.

"I'm just gonna give them a big hug and see my team to say thank you, because I couldn’t have done this without so many different people.
