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.

The country with the most Miss Universe crowns is the United States with eight crowns followed by Venezuela with seven. Next in line are Puerto Rico with five and the Philippines with three.
