In the Final Question and Answer Round, Harvey asked, “What quality in yourself are you most proud of and how will you apply that quality to your time as Miss Universe?” to which Demi answered, “As Miss Universe you have to be confident in who you are as an individual. And Miss Universe is a woman that has overcome many fears and by that she is able to help other women to overconme their fears. She is a woman that nothing is ever too much to ask for and I think that is exactly who I am.”
