[> Subject: Those were the days! One thing I remember about that pageant was how surprised I was that Wales made it so far (1st runner up). All along, she seemed very hesitant, almost as if she was hoping not to be called into the next round. In a way, it's refreshing to see someone so reserved in these days of "confidence." But it's still a bit surprising she made it so far.

[> [> Subject: I actually loved Miss Scotland. While she may have been reserved, I thought she came across as snotty. She didn't even want to hold hands with Shawn during the final two announcement. If I recall, Miss Scotland saw Shawn's gown and was angry at her national directors because of the gown they gave her to wear. She then had her chaperone contact a prominent Seoul gown designer to lend her a better gown than the one she brought to the pageant. On television it almost seemed like Miss Scotland hated Shawn. I know they were roommates too. I loved Scotland's face, but apparently she didn't even get into the top seven at the Miss United Kingdom pageant a few months later. Maybe it was her personality!

[> Subject: Scotland was lucky to make it to first runner up. I believe USA and New Zealand received the most first place votes. This allowed Scotland to make it to first runner up.

[> Subject: Observation: Prior to naming the finalists, Bob Barker explained how the leader after the semi's may not be the eventual winner (Probably cautioning the American TV audience who saw Judi Anderson lose the title after winning the semi's in 1978). Then, after the finalists answered their questions, Helen O'Connell commented on how long it had been since USA won MU (Announced to the TV audience now knowing Shawn was going to win).
