|Amparo Muñoz Quesada was born on June 22, 1954 in Vélez-Málaga, the capital of the Axarquía district in the province of Málaga, Spain. On July 19, 1974 she became the first Spaniard to win the Miss Universe beauty pageant that was held in Manila, Philippines that year. Amparo resigned as Miss Universe after only six months of her reign to pursue a showbiz career. She then made some b-movies in Spain and made one movie in the Philippines where she was involved in a slapping incident and a scandal involving money.
The title was not offered to the first runner-up and she is still listed as the winner that year. Her first runner-up was Helen Morgan, Miss Wales at that time who eventually became Miss United Kingdom and won the Miss World crown that same year just to relinquish the title 4 days later for yet another beauty pageant scandal.
