Big night for seven beauties
The annual Miss Barbados Big & Beautiful Pageant competition will come off on November 7 at The Plantation Theatre.
Who Am I is the theme for this year’s competition, which was recently launched at the Amaryllis Beach Hotel in Hastings, Christ Church.
Seven contestants will square off before the judges on competition night to see who will wear the crown for 2010. Director and organiser of the pageant Tonia Husbands told WE the contestants were selected from a filed of over twenty entrants and working hard at training sessions since early April.
“Everything so far is on stream. The girls have been really working hard at the various practice sessions, and I am expecting a great show,” she said.
Husbands pointed out that because of the current economic climate sponsorship had not been forthcoming as was expected, and therefore a decision had been made to give monetary prizes instead.
In outlining the make-up of the show, the director said: “Following the introduction segment, casual, the girls will move right into the talent aspect, followed closely by lingerie which is very popular with the audience. The penultimate segment will be formal wear. The question and answer will be the final segment before the judges deliberate to select the winner.”
These seven ladies will vie for the coveted prize:
Deborah Ramdin – Miss Hour Glass; Sasha Craig – Miss Q Styles Boutique; Shenique West – Miss Chads Plaza; Shevonne Corbin – Miss Exclusive Cuts; Natasha Richlieu – Miss Kenju; Kimberly Smith – Miss Henriette’s Closet; and Crystal Holder – Miss Lee Jens Plus Sizes. (CH)
