Runner-up to Mittenaere at Miss Universe 2016 was Miss Haiti Raquel Pelissier. Miss Colombia Andrea Tovar was second runner-up.
Colombia won Miss Universe only in 1958 via Luz Marina Zuluaga and in 2014 via Paulina Vega. In 2015, Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez finished as runner-up to Pia Wurtzbach of the Philippines.
