Withdrawals and Nations not competing
Italy (Anna Maria Kanakis) was disqualified in the pageant, because organizers discovered that she competed in Miss World at the very young age of 15. Malta (Janice Galea) also had the same issue with age requirements, because her age was similar to Miss Italy before the pageant. At the very last minute, she was replaced by her successor, and first runner-up, Pauline Lewise Farrugia.
