As part of her HIV advocacy, Wutzbach says she will be tested for HIV.
The first step is get yourself tested and to let yourself be informed. I have plans of getting tested myself, too. If I take the first step, then maybe others can follow suit. So I hope that they do, they really do.
Wurtzbach appears on The Steve Harvey Show titled Miss Universe: The Truth more than a month after the Miss Universe 2015 fiasco. Wurtzbach:
Don’t beat yourself up for this anymore. Come on. Let’s move forward, let’s be happy.
I want some healing to be done. for you and for Miss Colombia. I want that more than anything. So, thank you for coming. I thought you were an absolute class act. Absolute class act.
Wutzbach officially starts her reign appearing on ABC’s Good Morning America. She talks about the controversial announcement mix-up and her thoughts on sharing the crown.
I think it would be a little bit difficult for two girls to share a crown, but I have high hopes that this will give great opportunities for me and Miss Colombia and the rest of the contestants.
Considering the unique circumstances of her victory, Wurtzbach finally takes her long overdue Miss Universe walk on American talk show Live with Kelly and Michael. Kelly:
Pia, you never had the chance to do your walk. You know, the famous walk. Do you want to do your walk for us now.
