are times that seem the goblins set up the situation and all ending
really bad; it exactly happened in recently Miss Spain editions.
In 2000 year during Miss Spain
Pageant, the hostess announced the 26 semifinalist and by mistake
they forgot to Miss Barcelona, Roquel Rovira, who joined the competition
in next catwalk, becoming to be a top 12 and represent Spain in
Miss International 2000 pageant.
behind that embarrassing moment, the show would follow in a right
way apparently, however another problem show up when the host
announced the second runner up Helen Lindes, suddenly Luis María
Ansón, Jury President and member of Spaniard Language Academy
Royal stand up and called at public notary, who had notified the
votes and clarify the results because a new mistake had occurred
Atmosphere was very tense, then
minutes later, after check again the results, the host called
Natalia Robres, Miss Teruel as 2nd runner up, then Veronica García,
Miss Tarragona as 1st. runner up and the winner Helen Lindes who
had been called minutes ago as 2nd runner up!!, moths later in
Miss Universe pageant Helen placed third
In Miss Spain 2005 edition occurred
some mistakes when announced the semi finalists, since 2003 year,
the host named one by one candidate and say her if she is classified
Candidates were named in alphabetic order when was the turn of
Miss Almeria, the host said her “You are not classified”
same words for Miss Asturias and Miss Barcelona, when was the
turn of Miss Burgos the decision was “you are classified”
same words for next contender, Miss Cáceres.
In that moment stand up Miss Spain
1996 María José Suarez, who was member of jury,
who said that something wrong were happening because the semifinalist
were named by mistake, the public notary count again the votes
during tv commercial.
When camebak from publicity, the
misses who had already been named, returned at their original
spot and the announce of semifinalist start all over again, this
correction made happy at represents from Almería, Asturias
and Barcelona whose were chosen as semifinalist, nevertheless
Burgos and Cáceres’s contenders were disqualified.
It is compressible to think this
happened because of human mistakes, but also the organization
have to avoid those type of mistake because the feelings of candidates
is on game, and should be hurt when an “official”
classified candidate is disqualified minutes later.
