Name Lupita Jones grew more and more discredited with each passing day. Now it was not the girls who were in her care that spoke, but the same trainer who helped her win the Miss Universe title in 1991.
In an interview on the YouTube channel “Chisme No Like” Gustavo Castañeda spoke of the betrayal suffered by the modelhelping her get the crown.
According to his narrative Castañeda caught the attention of then-Miss Universe president Mike Walker, due to the full preparation given to Lupita Jones. It was thanks to his experience that the director wanted to give Castañeda the Miss Universe series.
“This franchise was awarded to me, not to her […] Mike Walker called me and said he wanted to go out with me. This was the week Lupita won […] She says, “I’m very impressed with her. And I want to offer you the management of Miss Teen USA, Miss USA and Miss Universe, so that you can take care of them“” – the coach recalled.
Castañeda had to wait several years to seize this opportunity. But before I could do anything Jones has allied with Televisa to be able to receive the contest.
“They sell the contest two years later, take it to New York, She [Lupita Jones] Go straight to New York and take it from me. The world director of Miss Universe, who was a good friend of mine, called me and asked, “what happened? This was Lupita, why weren’t you here with her? Castañeda said. The trainer explained that it was at this point that he found out about an alliance between the TV station and the businesswoman.
Your only support
Beauty trainer too she said that she witnessed Lupita Jones grow from below without the support of any committee and was promoted to Miss Universe. But the bad impact on his life made him change his attitude.
“It did not receive any support from the organizing committee. Then there was a very big controversy, in which the number one prize, when the “Señorita México” won, was to prepare with me […] But when she was ready to come here [el comité] he denied and did not payCastañeda said.
However, Jones had many people around him who trusted his talent, and both his family and community helped him raise the money necessary for proper training.
“She, her father, and the charro, to which she belonged from Mexicali, paid with me to prepare it. As the committee refused, they did not want to, ”he commented.
And despite winning the title, no one else wanted to support her, so the coach decided to move to his contacts to make Jones more famous in Mexico.
“When I saw she won, I didn’t see any move from Mexico Regarding TV, radio, magazines, newspapers, nothing. I have already worked with all the warehouses in Mexico and started transferring contacts“He added.
And although he didn’t want to appear in the press as someone who helped her get this far, the magazine decided to publish a full-page photo of Jones and Castañeda together. However this He didn’t seem like a boyfriend at the time, Simón Charaf.
“She called me to tell me what she was going to die for, because I was giving myself credit on her behalf. It didn’t feel like it, it looked like lead […] Y from then on, I began to notice Lupita’s very cold attitude towards me“, lamentation.
The kind of attitude Jones had towards the preparer forced him to give the current businesswoman an ultimatum: he told her that if he wasn’t needed he wouldn’t advertise anymore. Then she gave up her attitude. After all, Jones showed a selfish side.
“The new Miss Mexico will already be crowned […] I don’t want you to prepare it because when you do it, you forget about me. I don’t want any of them to make me fly, I want to be the only one because my job cost me, ”the model told the coach.
Castañeda explained that this was wrong because in countries like Venezuela, India and Puerto Rico they had many queens and each had a place, so his request seemed ridiculous. But according to the coach, Jones did not want to listen to him and told him that she would be the only Mexican winner of the competition.
“Venezuela and India are good for me, we are in Mexico and I want to be the only one […] I want this. I don’t want you to train anyone else, ”the model assured.
Despite all the problems, the coach still remembers that this young woman, who came from Mexicali, is nothing like the 63-year-old woman who insults and insults her charges.
“La Lupita pre corona, with me [era] dear, very pretty girl, very obedient, very obedient, very humble, very sweet, respectful. Soon after he won the crown under this bad influence she knew was a complete change– he assured.
