THE MISS UNIVERSE BARBADOS team managed to put on a show that ran on time last Saturday night.

National director of the franchise, Brian Green, and his Crown Events Inc. ran a tight ship from the stipulated 8 p.m. start to the end of the show two hours later when colourful confetti rained from the ceiling at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre with the crowning of Shannon Harris as Miss Universe Barbados 2016.

After a nine-year gap, the pageant returned with a line-up of 14 beauties initially parading on the square-shaped catwalk and introducing themselves to the 500 patrons.

During the second phrase, the ever popular swimwear segment, it was clear that the audience had clear favourites, as proclaimed by their banners.
