Miss Universe 1993
, the 42nd Miss Universe
pageant, was held at Auditorio Nacional, Mexico City
, Mexico on May 21, 1993. Dayanara Torres
of Puerto Rico
was crowned as Miss Universe 1993. Seventy-nine contestants competed in the 1993 Miss Universe Pageant.
The pageant was hosted by Dick Clark
for the fourth and final time, with colour commentary from former Miss Universe titleholders Cecilia Bolocco
(1987) and Angela Visser
This was the third time the pageant was held in Mexico, two years after Lupita Jones
won Mexico's first Miss Universe title in 1991. In the weeks prior to the final telecast, the contestants visited Campeche
and the Mexican borough of Xochimilco
for official events and sight seeing.
The pageant was marred by booing from the crowd following the failure of the Mexican delegate, Angelina González, to advance to the top 10 of the national costume competition or the finals as one of the top 10 semifinalists. This was particularly directed towards Miss USA Kenya Moore
, the country that owns the Miss Universe
organization. During the judges' introduction, booing increased especially after Mexican judges Jose Luis Cuevas
and Miss Universe 1991 Lupita Jones
were introduced to the audience who held them responsible for Miss Mexico's non-placement.
