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.

During the transition between the Bush and Obama presidencies in 2008. the Bush family went out of their way to make sure that the young Obama girls felt at home in their new space, something that can be daunting for anyone but especially two girls who were about to become huge fixtures in the public eye.

While looking back on the transition, Jenna Hager Bush wrote about her time showing the Obama girls around the White House. She wrote on Instagram:

Twelve years ago (!!!) today—I drove from my job teaching in Baltimore to meet my mom and sister in DC to show the next residents of this house their new home. Barbara and I taught the girls how to slide down the banister and all the secrets of the White House we loved as little girls—the best hiding spots, the movie theatre, and bowling alley. We showed them our rooms that would soon be theirs. Twelve years! PS I love my 'teacher outfit' it makes me nostalgic for that time.
