The current Miss Universe pageant was founded in 1952. The founder was Pacific Knitting Mills, who manufactured Catalina Swimwear. They were the former sponsor of the Miss America pageant, but when Yolanda Betbeze, Miss America 1951, refused to pose for publicity photos in the swimwear, Pacific Knitting Mills responded by founding their own separate pageant.

Germany, France, and Canada.

Miss Universe officials discovered Leona Gage had been twice married at 14 (though the first marriage had been annulled), and also had given birth to two children, the second at age 16. Though it didnít break any rules, it was also revealed that she had lied about her age (she reported she was 21 when she was in fact 18).†Gage had already begun competition in the Miss Universe pageant, placing in the Top 15 semifinalists. Because it was too late for her Miss USA runner-up to replace her, she was dropped altogether and her spot in the Top 15 went to Miss Argentina.

In addition to the Miss Universe crown, the pageant gives out several other titles, including first and second runners-up, Miss Congeniality and Best National Costume, though in the past there have been awards for Miss Photogenic, Best Swimsuit, and Best Style.

Canada is one but I am sure there are others.

The Romanov crown

[> [> [> [> Subject: Actually, you are incorrect. France has competed at every single Miss Universe Pageant. I just double checked. I think there is possibly one more country as well but can't think off the top of my head.

[> [> [> [> [> Subject: I just checked, too (at least one other website), and I'm seeing France has competed at all Miss Universe pageants. It was another trivial question (I think on here, actually) & it was posted that USA, GER & CAN were the only three. I'd like to find out the others, but I don't have time to do all that searching LOL.
