In an interview immediately after the FOX pageant, Sarah-Lorraine Riek told reporters Miss Philippines Pia AlonzoWurtzbach hadn't actually earned her win over Ariadna Gutierrez, saying:
"I really couldn't believe it, I was so upset. For me (she was robbed) as the real winner. I was very happy for Miss Colombia because she really deserved it. I'm really not happy with the result and so are the other girls, I'm sorry to say it."
