| According to Pinky, after Pia's national costume intro|
was videotaped, the Filipino audience went home
which made the venue seem empty & so quiet
She also unleashed her signature "Stop. Stare. Smile" presentation where she seemed to stop in her tracks, stare at the camera then break out in a winsome smile.
