Miss World 1973

1973 November 23
Royal Albert Hall, London GBR
54 participants

NOTE The judges made their final rankings of the seven finalists by assessing each one's personality, stage presence and the ability to speak before an audience.

The Majority Vote System determined the final rankings of the seven finalists. Odd numbers of judges were always used, to prevent ties from occurring. Chairman of the judges in 1973 was Peter Dimmock, Head of BBC Outside Broadcasts.

Marjorie Wallace was fired on March 8, 1974, because she had failed to live up to the "first-class public image" of the position. However, she is still the official titleholder, as the Miss World title was not offered to the runners-up.
