Most Beautiful Miss Universe: 47th place – Miss Universe 1973 Margie Moran of the Philippines


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.

Miss Philippines, Margarita Moran, who had been chosen by press photographers “Miss Photogenic”, won the 2nd Miss Universe crown for her country.

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!
