During the 1984 Bb. Pilipinas, there was a switching between Bb. Pilipinas-International Catherine Jane Brummitt (seated front, left) and Miss Maja Pilipinas Maria Villa Nachor (standing back, 2nd from left), but only of contests they were sent to. (Photo credit: Tony Paat)
Since we’re in the subject of switching the past 24 hours, I’d like to share with you the first actual switching in Bb. Pilipinas that I am aware of. There was no switch in titles, though, only in the international beauty competitions there were fielded in. And it involved Bb. Pilipinas International 1984 Catherine Jane Brummitt and Miss Maja Pilipinas 1984 Maria Bella Nachor.
At the time, the organizers of Miss International 1984 were very strict about the age requirements of its candidates. And since Catherine already turned 24 in time for the contest in Japan, she could no longer represent the Philippines. Miss Maja Pilipinas Maria Bella Nachor was sent to Yokohama instead. As an exchange, the former travelled to Pérez Galdós Teatro in Las Palmas, Canary Islands, Spain for Miss Maja Internacional 1984 where she made it to the semi-finals. Unfortunately, our bet in Kanagawa Prefectural Civic Hall went unplaced.
Do watch the video of the Bb. Pilipinas 1984 crowning moments now.
