Hosted by Bob Hope in Hampton, Virginia, the 1972 Miss World USA crowned Lynda Carter - yes that Lynda Carter - the United States ambassador of the competition and sent her off to the Royal Albert Hall in London to compete for the title of Miss World. Carter didn't take home the crown, that went to Belinda Green of Australia, but two years later she was on television so she couldn't have been that upset.

While speaking with the New York Times in 2018, Carter explained that she wasn't into the whole pageant thing mostly because it just wasn't her scene:

You have to visualize the time. Women’s lib! Burn the bra! Gloria Steinem! And I had some guy telling me I needed a chaperone and had to go cut a ribbon somewhere. It wasn’t me.

Jacob Shelton is a Los Angeles based writer. For some reason this was the most difficult thing he’s written all day, and here’s the kicker – his girlfriend wrote the funny part of that last sentence. As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
