Only Crowning Interrupted with Strike in Miss Universe

Postby jhunz23 » Mon Jul 25, 2022 7:09 am

    

The crowning moment of Miss Universe'72 Kerry Anne Wells of Australia was not shown on television because of a strike threat among pageant ELECTRICIANS. The screen blacked out as her name was announced as the new Miss Universe.

Among all the live broadcasts of Miss Universe, 1972 is the one year that no one could watch the crowning on their televisions.

As soon as the winner was going to be announced by Bob Barker, there was a total blackout on the televisions across the world, and the last thing seen was Miss Australia Kerry Anne Wells and Miss Brazil Rejane Costa standing as the last two fighting for the crown. But the signal was back after a few minutes for the world to watch the winner taking her victorious walk.

The problem could have been a technical one or a Planned STRIKE, but the world definitely missed the chance to watch live the first Australian ever, beautiful Kerry Anne Wells, win the Miss Universe crown.

Miss Universe'71 Georgina Rizk of Lebanon, was not allowed to crown her successor- Ms. Wells due to government restrictions because of fears of a terrorist attack. Lebanon did not compete in 1972 and Georgina could not be there to crown Miss Universe 1972. Ms. Wells was crowned by Miss Universe'70, Marisol Malaret of Puerto Rico and Miss Universe'71 1st Runner-Up Toni Rayward of Australia.

.
The Miss Universe pageant has many unusual anecdotes. For example, in 1975, the winner Anne Marie Pohtamo was not crowned by her predecessor, Amparo Muñoz (because she only reigned for 6 months and then refused to continue collaborating with Harold Glasser's organization).

The Finnish Pohtamo was crowned by Kerry Anne Wells who also presented her with the scepter...
It was the last edition in which the winner was given the scepter.

Many unusual crowning moments like Ms Pia W. and with the one of Ms Lara Dutta when the televised feed of her crowning was a long disruption of several hours in The Philippine Television. But The Crown will find its own way to The Head Of The Rightful Winners. On the other hand, Why Amparo had a disagreement with Gulf+Pacific, the previous owner of Miss Universe? In any kind of relationship, there should be Give and Take On All Parties. If one received Respect or Trust, One should give it Too or else don't ever work with or for someone. But most importantly, don't EVER EVER GET MARRIED.

70's are little weird, even in MW, winners are resigning, but Miss Universe & MW do not pass the crown and title to the first runners up. Maybe the 1st RU have offers in their home country and cannot abandoned commitments.

In the case of Amparo Munoz- her 1st RU- Helen Morgan was crowned MW '74, two months later, she also resigned and did not finish her reign as MW! Go girl power!

I think Amparo had Bipolar/ Borderline Personality Disorder, that explains her impatience with the MUOrgs, her act of throwing and breaking her Miss Universe crown, her susceptibility to bad (risky) boys, and her divorce and separation with many men - so sad, she did not have any children.
