Spain under 18 years old
times Miss Spain has been chosen with 17 years old, for that reason,
they was no able to go at Miss Universe pageant because of to be
under 18 years old, so it was sent others Spaniards and in addition
they made the cut placed high, it is important to say that 3 delegates
who didn’t win Miss Spain title originality, the same 3 placed
high later in Miss Universe over 40 Spaniard who won Miss Spain
Title didn’t make the cut, except those 3 and 11 delegates
since 1960 to 2005.
Spain in several times was no able to send at
its original winner at Miss Universe Pageant because of problems
with the age (Miss Universe no accept girls under 18 years old),
that has happened 3 times, and all of them have finish with a
successfully participation in the Pageant.
Teresa Sanchez went to Miss Universe
due to Miss Spain Juncal Rivero**,
has not 18 years old as rules of Miss Universe says, Teresa came
from Sevilla to Miami, USA and she got 1st. runner up place being
surpassed by Puerto Rico’s Debora Carthy Deu.
Almost 15 years later, Lorena
Bernal was chosen Miss Spain 1999 with 17 years old, therefore with
the impossibility to go to Miss Universe its finalist, was chosen
Galicia’s Diana Nogueira top 12 of Miss Spain, Diana
got for her country 2nd. Runner up place in Trinidad & Tobago,
just behind Philippines’s
Miriam Quiambao and Botswana’s
Mpule Kwelagobe who won the Miss Universe crown.
Finally 2 years later, Lorena Van
Herde was chosen Miss Spain 2001, this girl from Alicante, was no
able to represent her country at Miss Universe Pageant went Eva
Sisó instead, who was Lorena’s first runner up, in
the international pageant Eva placed 6th.

1999) and Eva Sisó (Miss Spain 2001)
It is interesting that 3 Miss
Spain were no able to go at Miss Universe because of age problems
and who replaced them got very high in the pageant, mainly if we
thought since from 1960, the year when Spain sent its first delegate,
just 14 Spaniards have been semifinalist.

Braulio Saborido (Spain)
Juncal Rivero was no able
to go at Miss Universe Pageant because 2 months before the beauty
pageant she won Miss Europe Pageant, Teresa Sánchez went
instead, also Miss Rivero was 18 years old.
Sofia Mazagatos was indeed
chosen Miss Spain under 18 years old, she should go at Miss Universe
1992, but for age reason the winner of Miss National Pageant who
was Virginia Correa went instead, Virginia won 2nd. Runner up in
best national custome in Thailand, Sofia represented Spain at Miss
