Hats off to our anchor, Natalie Morales!
She hosted last night's Miss Universe contest – and an estimated 1 billion people around the world tuned in.
"She looked like a million bucks," Hoda said.
Kathie Lee went one step further.
"I always think she’s prettier than any contestant," Kathie Lee said, adding that Natalie is in her 30s and the women competing are in their late teens. “She always looks like she could win the contest!”
The real winner, Leila Lopes of Angola, beat out the field of 88 other competitors.
