Racquel Welch’s San Diego Connection

Movie actress Raquel Welch was once a beauty pagent title holder as Miss San Diego and as Miss Fairest of the Fair at the San Diego County Fair.  She was a weather forecaster at KFMB, a local San Diego television station and she attended SDSU (then San Diego State College).

After moving to Los Angeles and being cast in bit parts she landed a leading role in the sci-fi movie Fantastic Voyage. Welch went on to star in the remake of One Million Years B.C. (see the image of her above in a prehistoric animal-skin bikini). Over the years she has appeared in some less than memorable roles, but had a good showing in a 1997 episode of Seinfeld where she played a highly temperamental version of herself.
