"This will be my first time experiencing the biggest night in American sports, and I’m excited to take viewers behind the scenes in the lead-up to the big event," the 26-year-old said.

Wurtzbach will cover the night's events alongside INSIDE EDITION correspondent Megan Alexander. They'll be hosting exclusive interviews, behind-the-scenes previews and game coverage.

“Pia is a natural fit as INSIDE EDITION’s Super Bowl Correspondent," says Executive Producer Charles Lachman. "She has the on-air poise that we look for in our talent, and as reigning Miss Universe, she’s no stranger to a thrilling competition."

Pia was crowned Miss Universe in Las Vegas last month - but not before host Steve Harvey mistakenly awarded the title to Miss Colombia.
