1989 was the longest in terms of pageant preparation lasting for over a month. Early favorites this year were Misses Australia, Holland, Turkey, Spain, Argentina and hometown girl Mexico. Angela Visser literally ran away with the title, her semi-finals competition scores speaking for themselves, only slightly challenged by Sweden's Louise Drevenstam. Angela and runner-up Joanna Gapinska of Poland were non-finalists in Miss World the year before. Jamaica's Sandra Foster merely repeated her performance as a semi-finalist also in the previous Miss World pageant. Today, Angela is a budding actress and television broadcaster, co-hosting several Miss Universe telecasts in the early 1990s.
