Miss Universe 1992, the 41st Miss Universe pageant, was held at Queen Sirikit National Convention Center, Bangkok, Thailand on May 8, 1992. 78 international beauties competed for the Miss Universe crown.

At the conclusion of the final telecast, Michelle McLean of Namibia was crowned Miss Universe 1992 by outgoing titleholder Lupita Jones of Mexico.[1] She was the first titleholder from Africa since Margaret Gardiner in 1978, and the first Namibian to place in the pageant in the six years her nation had been competing.

Delegates arrived in Thailand in late April for pre-pageant events, including the national costume competition and preliminary competitions held prior to the final telecast. The national costume competition took place on May 3.

The pageant was hosted by Dick Clark for the third consecutive year, and colour commentary was provided by Leeza Gibbons for the third time and Miss Universe 1989 Angela Visser for the second time.

This was the first time the pageant was held in Thailand, four years after Porntip Nakhirunkanok won Thailand's second Miss Universe title in 1988.

Contestant notes

  • A number of contestants had previously competed at or later competed in the Miss World pageant:
    • Cathy-Mae Sitaram of the US Virgin Islands competed at Miss World 1988.
    • Aisha Wawira Lieberg of Kenya competed at Miss World 1990.
    • Miss Universe winner Michelle McLean previously placed fourth runner-up at Miss World 1991. Top six finalist Anke Van Dermeersch of Belgium also competed at Miss World 1991 but did not place. Lisa Marie de Montaulk of New Zealand placed in the semi-finals at both pageants. Other contestants who competed at Miss World 1991 were: Yvette Peggy Jordison (Cayman Islands), Svava Haraldsdóttir (Iceland) and Sandra Aegerter (Switzerland).
    • Linda Hardy (France) and Sandra Guenefred Petgrave (Nigeria) competed at Miss World 1992.
  • Einat Zamoa, who represented Israel, placed first runner-up in the Miss Israel pageant but was sent to Miss Universe because the winner, Ravit Asaf, was under the age restriction of 18 years.[2]
  • Miss Hong Kong 1991, Amy Kwok was expected to represent Hong Kong and even arrived in Bangkok, but was disqualified because she did not meet residency requirements. Kwok was a US resident who became the first overseas contestant to win the Miss Hong Kong title. The same issue came up again in Miss Universe 1996 when the winner Winnie Yeung was also a US citizen and she was disqualified. The 1st runner up in the pageant, Sofie Rahman was her replacement. [3]
  • Prior to the final telecast a sports analyst for USA Today picked Shannon Marketic (USA) and Carolina Izsak (Venezuela) as co-favourites to win the title, offering 4-1 odds.[4]

Host city

Thailand anticipated holding the pageant as early as August 1991, when thousands of slum dwellers were evicted in order to improve the image of the city prior to a World Bank conference that was held in the city in October and the pageant.[5]

The official announcement that Bangkok would host the pageant was made in December 1991, with the date initially set as May 16.[6] In March the date was moved back to May 8 so that it would not clash with Wisakha Bucha Day, a Buddhist holiday.[7]

Political crisis

The pageant was held amidst a political crisis in Thailand that culminated on 17 May in the Black May protests against the government of General Suchinda Kraprayoon. The day prior to the event the public relations director expressed fears that the show might have to be cancelled if the situation escalated, although the threat was played down by other pageant officials.[8]
