Maricar Zaldarriaga represented the Philippines in the 1971 Miss Young International contest in Tokyo. She reached the semifinals and won the Miss Photogenic award. That year was memorable in the history of Philippine beauty pageants: it was a back-to-back Miss Photogenic. Earlier that year, Bb. Pilipinas-Universe Vida Doria was also awarded Miss Photogenic in Miss Universe.
Her name re-surfaced in 2004 when former Trade Secretary Mar Roxas decided to reveal that he had fathered a son out of wedlock, courtesy of Maricar. Their son is name Paolo Gerardo. It was said that Maricar embodied what Roxas likes in a woman: beautiful, intelligent, and a few years older than him.
