*That was also their ranking during the Evening Gown Competition.

*The Miss Universe crown stays in the Americas for the 3rd straight year after Venezuela both in 2008 and 2009.

*Miss Mexico and Miss Jamaica were already the clear favorites by the telecast judges since the swimsuit round. Jamaica topped the swimsuit round followed by Mexico and then Mexico ruled the long gown competition with Jamaica in close 2nd.

*It took 19 years for Mexico to have its 2nd Miss Universe titleholder. The last time was in 1991 when Lupita Jones won also in Las Vegas.

*Philippines' 4th Runner Up placement is the country's only and highest placement during the 2000s and the 2nd highest in the last two decades. Miriam Quiambao was 1st Runner Up in 1999.

*It's the 2nd consecutive Most Photogenic award for Thailand.

*It's very rare that a recipient of the Miss Congeniality award enters the semis and even placed 2nd Runner Up.
