Did you know that from 1986 to 1989 editions of Miss Universe, the 5 finalists were not asked a final question? The judges are given a free hand in choosing the winner based on their personal preference and the delegate’s performance in the Top 10. They determine the results by giving the finalists a ranking rather than a score. I assume this is the first instance that the “The Final Look” was the factor in selecting the ultimate winner.
Here are the Miss Universe titleholders, which did not answer a final question:
Barbara Palacios, Miss Universe 1986 (Venezuela)
Cecilia Bolocco, Miss Universe 1987 (Chile)
Porntip Nakhirunkanok, Miss Universe 1988 (Thailand)
Angela Visser, Miss Universe 1989 (Holland)
Do you think they are deserving of their respective wins? Is beauty alone enough to capture the crown today?
I know Miss Universe is still a beauty pageant but it is also a job so what do you think?
