Im a bit confused though, why do some states have more than one girl? Like Jalisco and Sinaloa for example?
Hey, McFrito; it is so nice to see you here! We have state pageants held to choose most of the contestants. Some of the favorites are left behind, however, in those state pageants; they sometimes end up as 1st runner-ups or don't even make the final cut. So they won't go to waste, Lupita invites them to participate in the national competition.
Perla, for example, was actually 1st runner-up back in NB Sinaloa 2008; but thankfully, Lupita didn't let her go to waste! She does make some weird decisions sometimes, like this year's Jacqueline Sauza, when Jalico's batch had so much better; but only she knows why...
