In the year 2000, Miss Mexico
Organisation changed the rules for choosing the new Miss Mexico,
now; they send more that one girl by State, one is the winner
and the rest of them are designed by Organisation, but What is
the reason that girls designated go higher than the winners?,
here are some cases:
In 2001 Erika Peña
Ramirez, had the State Title and Carmen Varela Leyva managed a
2nd runner, while Erika just reached top ten position.

Another case is Sinaloa
who in 2001 Miss Sinaloa was Rosa Alicia León Soto, who
didn’t make the semifinals nevertheless Claudia Collado
and Mónica Psihas González reached the top ten spot,
both are “Misses designated”.
