Miss Universe 1971 Georgina Rizk announced prior to the crowning of Miss Universe 1972 that she would not attend the pageant in Puerto Rico as she feared for herself after the killing of Puerto Rican pilgrims in Israel earlier that year. The killers were alleged to have been trained in Lebanese camps. Miss Universe 1970 and a native of Puerto Rico,Marisol Malaret substituted for Georgina. This year brought many innovations as the pageant is held out of the United States for the the first time. The 1972 pageant was held in Dorado, Puerto Rico. It is also this year that the ceremonial robe is no longer used as part of the coronation and the videotaped swimsuit segment is introduced.
