Miami Beach Auditorium
Miami Beach, Florida
Hosts: Bob Barker & June Lockhart
"Well, a year has passed since I last stood on this stage. A lot's happened. A lot of...umm...should I say...uh...experiences. I don't know how to explain them...but they were something.
Also, I learned a lot while travelling this year...the places...the people. It, some of it, made me very very happy and the rest was just sort of discouraging.
I have a very very strong hope for the girl who's the winner this year.
I hope that she can stand in this place, at this time, and relate to the all the viewing public a year of beautiful and meaningful experiences
rather than my year's pre-occupation with fear...a great deal of fear for our world."
