Miss Universe 1970, Marisol Malaret from Puerto Rico put on her crown. Prior to joining the contest, Kerry worked as a weather reporter for a television station in Australia. She went back as a news anchor after her reign. 1972 was the year for Australia as Wells’s win in the Miss Universe was not the only beauty title won by Australia but also other prestigious titles like the Miss World and Miss Asia Pacific as well as second place in the Miss International pageant.
