Miss Universe 1999 Mpule Kwelagobe (middle) and her court (including 1st Runner-Up Miriam Quiambao)

In my mind, Miss Universe 1999 will always be worth remembering, not only because our very own Miriam Quiambao placed 1st Runner-Up and could have been our 3rd Miss U more than 16 years ago. Rumor has it that Donald Trump already approved of her winning provided that the final answer in the Final 3 will be handled well. Sadly, it wasn’t meant to be. I sat glued to the set like a leech, missing lunch and disappointed that the final results were so close to our favor but still not there.
At any rate, the atmosphere of that edition will long be remembered for having such an all-around festive atmosphere that was both festive and pulsating. The music, the performers, the limbo dancing, the candidates, the swimsuits, the gowns, the judges, the then-popular host (Jack Wagner) – everything contributed to a finals night that will always be looked back upon as evoking the authentic spirit of the Carribean and everything that comes with the colorful flavor of Trinidad & Tobago.
