The controversial final question and answer question was the main highlight of the pageant. "If given the chance to choose between the two to stop the war, will it be Donald Trump or Hilary Clinton". Puerto Rico, Thailand, and Indonesia chose Hilary Clinton to stop the war around the world by representing the power of women. While, the United States and the Philippines chose Donald Trump because they believe that using Trump's influence could bring hope to stop the war.

Pertiwi believes that Hilary Clinton and her could make a big impact to fight against war. With Hilary as the future commander-in-chief of the United States if she wins and Ariska as the ambassadress, they could significantly make a big difference to stop the war.

Philippines' Nicole Cordoves won the 1st runner-up, Thailand was the 2nd runner-up, Puerto Rico was the 3rd runner-up and USA was the4th runner-up.
