Our very own Catriona Gray has just been crowned Miss Universe 2018! Before naming the Top 3 for the final Q&A, host Steve Harvey announced the Top 5 out of 94 contestants: Miss Puerto Rico, Miss Vietnam, Miss Philippines, Miss South Africa, and Miss Venezuela. The five beauty queens answered questions from their fellow Miss Universe contestants for this year's first Q&A portion. Here's how they did:

1. Miss Puerto Rico: Kiara Ortega

Question:  "Hundreds of journalists across the world were jailed this year for writing stories that were critical of their governments. Why is Freedom of the Press important?"

Answer: "The press is there to inform us. Their job is to give us the news about what's happening to the world right now. They should have total freedom to be able to report exactly what's happening, without forgetting that they have to have sympathy because there are a lot of people that are suffering from different problems in the world."

2. Miss Vietnam: H'Hen Nie

Question: "The #MeToo movement has sparked a global conversation. In response, some have said that the world has become too politically correct. Do you think the #MeToo movement has gone too far?"

Answer: "I don't think that it has gone too far. Protecting women and women's rights is the right thing to do. Women need protection and rights. Thank you."

3. Miss Philippines: Catriona Gray

Question: "Canada recently joined Uruguay as the second nation in the world to make marijuana legal. What is your opinion on the legalization of marijuana?"

Answer: "I'm for the medical use [of marijuana], but not so much recreational use, because I think, if people were to argue, what about alcohol and cigarettes? Everything is good, but in moderation. Thank you."

4. Miss South Africa: Tamaryn Green

Question: "Many countries across the world are experiencing an increase in immigration. Do you think countries should limit the number of refugees allowed across their borders?"

Answer: "I think that every country should have their own rules and regulations. But for a thriving society and for all of us to stand together, we have to understand that we are all human. And we are all more alike than we are not, so we should be open to loving each other, accepting each other, it doesn't matter where we come from."

5. Miss Venezuela: Sthefany Gutiérrez

Question: "What would you say to someone who believes that pageants are archaic and against the feminist movement?"

Answer: "Nowadays we live in an era in which we have advanced greatly. Beauty pageants are not just about beauty, they are about sensitivity and about having a heart. In beauty pageants, we can show that women like me can achieve any dreams that we may have in the world."
