Note: Marjorie Wallace, the 1973 winner, became the first titleholder not to complete her reign, when in March 1974, she was fired for "failing to fulfill the basic requirements of the job". Organisers extended an offer to first runner-up Evangeline Pascual of the Philippines to complete the duties of Miss World for the remainder of the year, but without holding the title; when Pascual turned down that offer, organisers next turned to second runner-up Patsy Yuen of Jamaica, who accepted.[3]

Note: The 2002 pageant was originally to be held in Abuja, Nigeria but was relocated back to the United Kingdom after a midst of riots in that area.

Note: The 2008 pageant was originally to be held in Kiev, Ukraine but was relocated to South Africa after the diplomacy crisis between Russia and Georgia.
