Miss Universe 1954

Miriam Jacqueline Stevenson, from South Carolina, USA, competed in the 3rd edition of Miss Universe, in 1954. She edged out the big favorite and still the most talked about Miss Brazil of all times, Martha Rocha.

The American and the Brazilian beauties tied after the judges’ final voting. As Catalina was the major sponsor of the pageant in its early years, the tie-breaking judgment finally came down to who had the better physical figure, which went to Miriam’s favor, for she had the “fitter” hips over Martha Rocha.

Stevenson gave the car she won in her Miss Universe Prize package to Martha Rocha as a consolatory prize.

In the 50's Many don’t know, but all judges received a detailed table explaining what perfect measurements were for the time, the famous 90-60-90 cm (bust-waist-hips). Miss Universe was created and sponsored by Catalina swimwear, therefore, it’s not hard to understand why a perfect body was more important than a perfect face back then.

Maribel Arrieta Gálvez (Miss El Salvador Universe 1955) and 1sr Runner up in Miss Universe that year , who was nicknamed “Central America’s Marilyn Monroe”, In some Latin American countries, it was reported that Miss El Salvador lost the crown because she got too much of a tan the day before the pageant, and her skin was actually red when competition time arrived! (She also won Miss Congeniality that year). El Salvador never again placed so high in Miss Universe.

Maureen Hingert (Miss Sri Lanka Universe 1995) and Miss Universe 1955 2nd runner up , the highest placement of Sri Lanka so far in the history. She became a relatively famous Hollywood actress later. Maureen Hingert, who has long been revered as “putting Sri Lanka on the map” and being an ambassador to her country, appeared in several Hollywood productions, such as The King and I, Fort Bowie, Gun Fever, and so many others.

In 1955 Edition, In those times, some nasty journalists got together to select the pageant’s ugliest, or should we say, less beautiful delegates, and their choices were Mexico, Yolanda Mayen (ugliest body), and Alaska, Lorna McLeod (ugliest face).

In 1982 Edition ,South Africa's low score in swimsuit remains one of the greatest Miss Universe Unsolved Mysteries! South Africa’s elimination, though, remains one of Miss Universe’s greatest unsolved mysteries. She was second in interview (behind Guam) and first in evening gown, but her score in swimsuit was considerably low (7.225, 10th place), which left her in 6th place overall and out of the top 5. Considering that the same panel of judges had voted for her in 1st place in the swimsuit preliminary competition, it is believed that a computer mistake might have ruined her chances in the competition.

Miss Universe 1973 was held at the 2,000-year-old amphitheater of Odeon of Herodes Atticus, at the foot of the Acropolis in Athens, Greece, on July 21, 1973. It might have been the only show the US audience didn’t see live, as it was broadcast with a 7 hr. time delay. It was the only time Miss Universe was held on continental Europe.

1973 Edition. Miss Israel, Limor Schreibman, for many the number 1 front-runner for the crown, blew the final question proceedings, by first not understanding the question and being sent back in place until they could get a proper interpreter. Then, after the others answered and the interpreter was brought on stage, she suddenly understood the question without his help. She place 4th runner up

1973 Edition, One of the judges, a famous bull fighter by the name of “El Cordobes”, did not have Miss Philippines in his list of favorites until he saw Margarita speaking perfect Spanish. The Spaniard judge, amazed to see an Asian woman speaking fluent Spanish, suddenly move her up to first place in his list!
