Miss Tenerife – 17-year-old Patricia Rodríguez – was elected Miss España last Saturday night. The contest was held at the Marina D’Or holiday complex in Oropresa del Mar in Castellón, and a total of 52 women took part. The final selection was made by the jury and votes from the public. The night before, 26-year-old Mister Madrid, José Manuel Montalvo, won the Mister España contest. Misters Pontevedra and Huelva were the runners up. The winner, an aeronautical technician, described himself as “simple but persevering”. He said he enjoys television and is thinking in taking an acting course.
