Subject: I've always wondered if maybe the reason that Barbara Peterson did not place was politics. Didn't Israel win Universe that year? There had been so much crap going on in the Middle East during that time period, that having both Israel and the USA both in the finals may have ignited something. Remember, there had been a bombing at Miss USA just a few years before that had killed over 20 people and Lebanon's Georgina Rizk was not even able to return to crown her successor for fear of something getting started. It's just a theory, but there may be some validity to it. Or otherwise, she may have just sucked in the preliminaries.

The MU 1976 judges may not have liked her but MUO obviously did, because Barbara Peterson returned to Miss USA as a judge three times and as a guest during the anniversary celebration years.
