After seeing Gabby's latest pics and her online interview, I can not say that Gabby has outdone her 2008 performance at MW. She looks and sounds alot more sophisticated and beautiful than she did at MW 2008. As of right now she is easily in my top 8 and realistically I see her making my top 4. I am hoping the prelim and final judges love her. She is certainly standing out as one of the top contenders this year. Despite the fact that everyone else seems to overlook her because of her height I am actually expecting her to floor the competition at the prelims and easily crack the top 8 with a grab for the top 4 come Sept. 12.

I will say it again, Gabby has the face of a winner!

I think the mistake was obvious- I meant to say that Gabby has NOW outdone her MW2008 performance.

I totally agree that Gabby should be the face of the Caribbean. First off I never bought into the Puerto Rico hype, all her pictures were always in profile and when you saw her full view I was not impressed. Dominican Republic meh, Bahamas tall. I think that her head shot was one of the best and she didn't get credit for it until now.

Also I am loving her Fail Glam shot and web interview. People are touting Malaysia's interview as the second coming of Lara Dutta, am MUO doesn't crown those types anymore and I found her interview to be very loooooonnnnnnggggggg winded. China needs more English lessons and USA looks very guant I am sorry

Gabby is peaking at the right time and I am very proud to be Trini. Cannot wait for the prelim show, I think her evening gown is going to blow us out of the water.

Gabby got voted Face of the caribbean and made it to the top 10 In Global Beauties' Face of the Universe. The Winner was Miss Australia and I somewhat agree with their Choices Angola was Second but i would have put her first .

Now the face of the Universe vote is not their favorites list it's just based on facial beauty, but i am happy that Gabby made it to their favorites pool and has been there since before they arrived in Brazil.

On to another note Gabby's Official beauty shot is stunning.I love the sultry look she gave and she didnt come off as trashy or slutty I wish I could say the same for some of the others. I am not saying she was the best but she was close.

Question did they nix the idea of having their official shots be the carnival themed one? I mean the styling looked way off on it so i wouldn't be surprised just wanted to know if we had official word on it.

Subject: YOYO I am not sure what you are refering to but there are alot of pictures with Gabby in it. Actually she is one of the most photograph girls right now. She is in alot of group pictures. There are only a couple of pictures with all the girls together and I do see Gabby. Plus there are many with her and other girls as well. So, I am not sure exactly what you mean. And I think the more a girl is photograph by herself tells who the press likes. Gabby is doing great and looks great

I was just simply wondering why she wasn't in the group shots. I did admit that she has some amazing SOLO shots But group shots shows how a delegate is interacting with the other ones so it concerned me that's all.

But I have to admit she has been looking DAMN GOOD BY HERSELF LOL

Here is the issue I am having. It is one thing that everybody has their favs. Not everybody going to have or love the same person or have them on their list but when there is a devisive constant bashing that is where I draw the line.

I signed up to participate in USB board mock miss universe, but after this week I hv decided that I am not. All the pics I hv seen of Gabby on that board are between none to extremely unflattering. As I said I cannot tell anybody who to hype but some of those girls they keep rating up" - you know what my mother said if you don't hv anything nice to say, say nothing at all.

For all the emphasis that was placed on Gabby's height lo and behold Miss USA show up in Brazil the same FRECKING HEIGHT. Where all the ppl who said that Gabby was too short, what happen bcuz Alyssa is the same height.

Yo Yo whether Gabby is in a lot of group pictures or not doesn't make or break her chances. I remember Maggie Walcott wasn't in hardly any pics bcuz the focus that year was on Miss Antigua and Barbuda, if Danielle Jones wasn't vybing with Miss USA they probably would have ignored her too in favor of Miss Barbados that year. So they fact that she gets a lot of solo shots is more imoressive to me. And Miss universe is NIT won by how many pictures you have bcuz every year we see it that there are 3-4 delegates the make the semis and you re left wondering 'Where she come from?'

...don't worry about the haters. Our girl will deliver for the prelims. As of now CHINA is way ahead as my favorite. Angola and Venzuela look like top 4 contenders. Gabby is securely in my top 16 and I am hoping she cracks the top 8 and then top 4. I like Israel but as I said before I am not confident that she toned up her body enough for the SS round. I need to see more of France and sexy Vietnam to make up my mind. How could I have doubted Malaysia- she's in my top 16 also. I still have not seen anything from Bahamas that tells me she will make the cut but as I still believe, it all depends on the prelim interview and presentation show- everything else is window dressing.PR is O.K. and could make the cut but if she missed it I would not be surprised.

USA is looks very anorexic and I have to wonder if it was not for botox and the small breast implants if we would be looking at a potential anorexia nervosa victim. If I was a prelim judge, she would be in danger of not making the top 16 but as it stands, usually half of the prelim panel is American so she will make the cut. All I can feel is concern for her health.

I hope this year's top 16 is interesting and not that predictable single mould we saw last year. I want to see diversity.

As for Gabby, I believe it is actually a good thing that she is not a favorite. She looks good and we will see her deliver superbly (God willing) for the prelims and final.

[> Subject: Miss USA 2011 is extremely overrated, and the folks at USB are in complete awe of her. Alyssa is too skinny and very average looking to me. However, you need to remember that Shanna Moakler is a member of that board and they are all kissing her behind. So, just wait and let time weed Alyssa right out of the garden. Trust me, there are many delegates that will shine over her. Alyssa may do well, but she will not win Miss Universe. She just ain't Miss Universe material! I'm more worried about Mexico, She is looking great in the pics, and I hate that country. This girl is way better than Excema (scratch, scratch).

Am I the only one that has noticed there have been a lack of group shots with Gaby in it. I've been searching website after website and seeing all kinds of combinations but no Gabby. Don't get me wrong I am seeing beautiful solo shots of her but I just find it strange that there is only one with her in a group (the mama mia night)

On another note For me so far the ones to watch are Angola and China. Angola just stands out in any group she's in. She radiates personality and to me by MUO standards represents what they have been drawn too in winners. Having said that we know African delegates tend to crash fast after they make it to the top 15 due to lack of runway preparations for a fast paced catwalk during SS unlike the more subtle version at Miss World. So I am hoping that Angola's people trained her well.

China is just a stunner the height the look I don't see the same personality that comes from Angola but I would hope it's there.

I am actually going to make a prediction here and say Miss USA will not make it for the second year in a row I know I know am I insane. Well Truth be told The girl is beautiful and has a natural appeal to her but to me she fails to impress in groups, and her pictures seem to lack the fire she had at Miss USA.

Now back to my original point, the lack of group shots of Gabby. Why is this important. Well any avid pageant follower knows that the group shots tell the story of whose the favorite. The more group shots you are in and more importantly the more group shots you are posted online in usually tells who the press is following. As of right now hands down Angola is winning the race. We all know exactly which events she went too and who was to her left and right. Gabby went to visit the mayor and besides that one amazing shot of her getting off the bus I haven't seen anything else from her. I am not raising any alarms just pointing out something I noticed. However, I must admit I like the pace at which she is moving. Meaning a slow climb to the top. Last year I think Latoya got too much press way too fast. Though I didn't mind the nude thing I do believe it was overkill.

anyway I'm out

Making top 16 will be the 2nd toughest thing Gabby will have to do - Making top 8 is the hardest. As of now Gabby is secure in my top 16. I don't see her moving out of my top 16. Based on her look in the red outfit (pics from yesterday) and the white dress (pic posted today online) she looks like she can realistically compete for a top 4 score in EG if she makes the top 8.I am keeping my fingers crossed that the prelim and final judges love her body for the SS segment as I do. I actually prefer her body now as compared to how she looked in 2008. I see more cures and I am loving it.

On an aside, people can keeping pounding Gabby but it is really strange to see that I am not seeing all the same for PR when at the same event (visit to the mayor I beleieve) Gabby looks WAYYY better that then prearrival fav. PR.

USA's skin tone has improved drastically (as expected)as her tanning has settled in. With makeup and the tan she looks good but I have to wonder if it was not for the 2 small breast implants if people would think she was just plane anorexic. Anyways, no way is USA not making the top 16- this is MU after all.

Hey folks! I've been paying attention to the pics thus far and have compiled a list of favourites and delegates to watch out for. I seriously think this year is gonna be a big surprise in terms of the 'regular' names called during the top 15. Its also a quite competitive bunch as mentioned by other posters.

Gabby--> I think she's got a lot of potential despite her age/height which to me is a minor issue when it comes to advancing to the Top 15. I think it may only become relevant if or when she makes the final cut. However I hope she is ON for the presentation show as it makes or breaks everything!

My list is no particular order;

1. USA (nice face but seems very anorexic)
2. CANADA (dark-horse, would like to see more pics)
3. COSTA RICA (one of the best bods this year)
4. PANAMA (There's just something about this chic)
5. MEXICO
6. PUERTO RICO (based on her departure vid, I think she would wow in her interview)
7. DOMINICAN REPUBLIC (face!!!)
8. TRINIDAD & TOBAGO
9. COLOMBIA (another one you gotta look out for)
10. CHINA (I'm 50/50 about her, but her height does it)
11. MALAYSIA (She has the potential to disappoint, but her face is what has her here)
12. VENEZUELA (very classic Venezuelan look, however I don't think MU is looking for that)
13. ANGOLA (hands down, best Black beauty this year)
14. PHILIPPINES (sash factor, I know MU wants their ratings and after what happened last year, I'm sure there's a spot for her)
16. UKRAINE (dark-horse)
17. ARUBA (I want to see more, but she's 50/50 for me)
18. LEBANON (dark-horse)
19. KOSOVO
20. GERMANY
21. RUSSIA (I expect a lot from her!)
22. ARGENTINA
23. PARAGUAY (at first I didn't like her, but she's growing on me)
24. HUNGARY (possible stunner!)


Not worthy of a place but may be there for political/frivolous reasons:

BRAZIL (from what I've been reading, her personality stinks, I find most Brazilian women/delegates to be this way, I remember the one who didn't hug Riyo when she won. However being realistic, the pageant is in Brazil, so I can see her placing)

OK here's the thing. Trini don't feel bad about Puerto Rico I never found her strong facially at all. All her best pics were always taken in profile. I am impressed with
1. Tnt - Gabby is looking Fab. There is a pic of her and Ximena and gabby outshines her for miles. She needs to keep the momentum going into the second week, this is what killed La Toya last year. Wardrobe looks good her hair divine body on point. She is at least one of the Top 3 sexiest women there.

Aruba great candids beautiful face.




Philippines a Filipino delegate I actually like.

Netherlands a little too tanned but pretty.

While I am a big supporter of Gabby, C 85% of the pictures I have seen of her at the miss universe pageant was not her best. She does indeed looked aged in the pictures and while I know this not to be true as I have seen her in person and she does indeed have a soft refreshing look, most of her pictures thus far are not reflecting this. I dont know it is some of the low resolution cameras used, lighting, head positioning, tiredness or what. However, it is recognisable. I am nevertheless convinced despite of this she will be a semi finalist on final night because it is also obvious from the pictures that she does mean business

[> [> Subject: Well, I agree with you to some extent. But, however most of the contestants are not looking their best right now and I think its because its just the start of the pageant and still tired and exhausted plus the low resolution pictures dont help either. We all know that Gabby is very beautiful so dont worry. I think she will peek in the right time. She was chosen to do the CHI photoshoot, so that says alot about her presence. I am not worried at all. I know she can deliver

I agree with you assessment, And yes Gabby is Beautiful but we need to look at realities she is 27 years old. She looks her age, which is still young but put her up against 19's and 22's and she is going to look aged. another reality is let's not go with the Travel thing Trinidad to Brazil is no Japan to Brazil so I won't necessarily go with Jet lag.

I am torn between what I know Gabby is capable of and what the MUO GOES FOR. The reality is. They are looking for someone that is taller and a bit younger but Gabby has a fire and determination that I have not seen in a contestant. Even more so that Wendy. It's as though she is so determined to win this with or without help and I believe in her abilities i truly do I just get doubtful when I think about how much the MUO will have to change their mold in order for Gabby to win. a LEGIT concern we must all accept but i will tell you this if Gabby doesn't make it it won't be because of a lack luster performance I know that much. I keep saying it. I saw latoya's performance on presentation night and she did not give her best. I don't care what anyone says I know these girls and have worked with them, Gabs lets see you work magic because you will definitely need it to penetrate the top 15 from there I can see her impressing some more but it is making the top 15 . Damn i didn't realize how nervous I was going to be for this edition.

Hey all Well I am extremely excited for this Miss Universe Pageant. Why? we are seeing the most competitive bunch of girls in years. we can at least pick 15 favorites from pre arrival and now that they are in Brazil you can add 5 more. for the first time it is so wide open. i love that. I hated in 2005 when we all knew that Canada was going to win or last year for that matter (Mexico and Ireland were the two pegged to win from the start). this year no one can even chance placing money on a delegate. i love it This means we will literally following every little detail from every contestant and every contestant will have to make sure everything is flawless. Which makes it much tougher for them and more entertaining for us.

With 89 delegates it's going to be a climb for Gabby and though I was uncertain about her in the local leg I really do wish her the best I know how badly this means to her. Please god let them get it right. I must admit she is surely shining in some of those pictures. I really hope to see her in the top 15 and hopefully the crown.

now on to other topics.

I get it MUO you are trying to draw traffic to your website but having the internet choose a rep is a faulty idea and it takes away credibility. Lets be real after you took away the prestige of Miss photogenic as well as Best National costume by putting it in the hands of online voters you are now giving a girl a free pass based off of popularity. Here's my thing if you realize every time you open up voting that the same countries are winning then obviously your system is flawed. If Thailand Philippines or Puerto Rico win anything this yeah I would really just have to roll my eyes as would everyone in the audience. Quite frankly i think even people from those countries roll their eyes lol

Here's to a great edition to Miss Universe.

...is Melanie George Sharpe, from what I gather. She was a delegate in the famously poor sampling of Miss World T&T 2010 (or was it 2009-either way a horror of a pageant) . She looks cute and stood out from the other delegates at the MT&T Oneness pageant BUT why are we having a separate pageant for METT when they could have simply joined with either the MUTT or MWTT pageant team this year and held a joint screening and selection process with a much higher calibre of delegates?

I don't know if Ms. Sharpe has improved any from her stint at MWTT but I have to say that the franchise holder will learn pretty soon that no one in this country has any money to spare to just send a clapper to a pageant. It is difficult enough to place when we send real competitors.

All the best to the METT team. I really hope Ms. Sharpe has improved but I am not holding my breath.

I have to confess I have not been looking at many pics but these are th ones that stand out so far(in random order):

1) China (super hot bod; she is gonna rock the EG segment)
2) T&T (Go Gabby!!!)
3) USA (very impressive when she has tons of make-up on and is under the lights but in real life too anorexic looking for my taste-This is why she is NOT my personal fav. for the MU title)
4) Vietnam (cute and sexy-if she won the online vote I would be happy)
5) Malaysia (good looks but I still have some doubts)
6) Mexico (looks better in SS than USA)
7) Brazil
8) Venezuela (shame on me for doubting her!)


Don't choke me for saying this but so far Puerto Rico just looks O.K.-I expect her to place but I have not seen the TOP contender that I was expecting.

Additionally, I am a bit disappointed that Miss Israel did not tone up her body some more for the competition-she is obviously beautiful but my gosh this is MISS UNIVERSE, not Miss World!
Who are your standouts thus far?

I can't wait to see the competition gown. I personally was expecting a red gown (not this shade though) but she seems to be wearing ALOT of red already these past weeks so I guess I will have to wait and see what she steps out in for the prelims. I have my fingers crossed that it is a Bobby Ackberali creation.

Hope she has a safe trip tomorrow as she heads out to Brazil. Her official photos are freakin' hot! I can't wait to see her dingolay in San Paulo-regardless of what the outcome is, I am very proud of our girl.

On an aside, no one told me that Shinequa is Miss Top Model Trinidad and Tobago 2011-anyways, this did cross my mind at this year's MUTT pageant. Once Christopher Nathan was involved it was inevitable for her to become a model who will be screening with ELITE MODEL Management. I expect her to get a contract. I don't expect to see her in the pageant scene next year. I have my fingers crossed that Valene will enter MUTT but as of now it appears she is more career oriented.

Trini77 the rumor is not true, if it was then you would have so so semifinalists from some regions and as you know Trump don't do so-so. Becuz let's face it take Africa for instance other than Angola (and she is tithering by a string) who else is there? So u would exclude a fantastic delegate from a more popular region just to "put in" a mediocre one to "be fair" and fill a quota. No then if they were getting complaints before then watch out if this is ever implemented. Makes no sense to me.

The rumor is circulating that MU 2011 delegates will be separated into regions with 3 from each region being selected with the 16 place being filled by popular internet vote (the latter has already been confirmed).

I am just wondering how the Caribbean islands will be classified regionally. This could be disastrous if we are lumped in with latin America. Will be placed in a category of "islands" as they did back when the parade of nations was done regionally?

If the Caribbean is left to stand alone with other islands then we will be fine-if we are lumped together with either North/Cenral or South America we are in trouble.

...based on the two pics of Gabs in the silver Tribe coustume, I am revising my prediction for her to top 16 or top 4. I loved her body at the MTTU11 final but the side ways pics are certainly not flattering for her midsection. Again though, I have to say the long hair is a drastic improvement. I have to reiterate, Gabby does not have the typical MU top SS body but I suspect that if she makes the top 16 (fingers crossed), the judges are either going to love her body or get rid of her quickly.

I guess we have only about 11 or 12 days to see what she really looks like when standing shoulder to shoulder with the other top competitors.

...those are the pics. I personally love the womanly curves and her sexy walk. She looks much better on video than in these 2 pics. Let's hope the judges like her.

Now, according to online posts I am seeing that confirmation of the online vote was sent out to franchise holders today. I personally think only an Asian country or PR will win. Since this year PR will place on merit, I guess this means Thailand or the Phillipines will fill the 16th spot.

Only about 2 weeks left for arrivals to begin. Here are my top pics:

TOP PICK FOR THE CROWN: 1.CHINA (I know, everyone has USA as their #1 pick)

Other potential winners: 2.USA 3. Puerto Rico 4. Angola

Expecting a top 8 finish but I would not be surprised to see her in the top 4: Miss T&T Gabrielle Walcott

Top 16: Brazil will be there but she is not in contention for the MU title.

Big hits for others but I really doubt these ladies' competitiveness: Venezuela, Malaysia, Bahamas [out of these I think Malaysia will make it if she nails the EG segment since we all know she has a brain based on her top 10 placement at MW2007. Truth be told, I don't ever recall Venezuela missing the cut 2 years in a row but I certainly would not call this year's MV a beauty. As pertains to Bahamas, I have no idea why people have her in their top 16. Maybe she will look better by the time she arrives in Brazil]

Growing on me: Mexico, Ghana, Curacao

On an aside, there are only a couple of months for MW. The only concern I have with LeeAnn currently is her hair. Just like on MWTT final night, it seems her hair has a mind of its own at times. Lets hope they lengthen it and style it better for the MW finals.

I had a look at the official SS shot that was released recently and Ms. Bahamas looks like she is definitely top 30 but not top 15. However, we all know about 5 spots are chosen by the MUorg and I am expecting Egypt and Bahamas (recent host of the pageant) to take 2 of those spots. For now, I just don't see a top 15 competitor for the MU prelims. Miss Brazil is competitive enough this year to slip into the top 15 on merit but if on the off chance she fails to place on merit then one of these 5 spots will go to her.

Based on the very bold color, I expect the dress to be a simple design. All we can do now is pray the design is simple but interesting with an air of elegant sophistication, not just simply bland. The chest and waist area should be as form fitting as possbile.

...I think the material looks really heavy and stiff. I hope it is just the photography. I hope they understand that Gabby must have a very clean, smooth, form-fitting gown that accencuates her waist as much as possible. I am really disappointed that Bobby Ackberali was not given the nod to design Gabby's competition gown.

All I can say is, we all know Gabby is a really nice person but if ever there was a time to be one it is now-Gabby better know how to speak up if she sees something going wrong with the design.

Nearly everyone who is supporing Gabby is expecting a disaster from Von Vonni based on his previous calibre of work.

My gosh can we just get one pageant year where we can breathe a sigh of relief....last year they basically screwed Jenna out of a finalist spot to ensure LaToya wins and now this mess. Mr. Lee needs to learn that we are not USA nor a big latin country like Venezuela where MUorg makes alot of its money. We are 2 tiny dots on the world map- one miscalculation on our part and our girl is out the finals.

WTF! VON VONNI IS WHO HE WANTS TO PROVIDE GABBY WITH HER FINAL GOWN? THESE POSTS THAT I AM SEEING MUST BE A JOKE RIGHT? IT MUST BE A GOWN FOR A DINNER OR PRESENTATION OF DELEGATES ON THE FIRST OPENING NIGHT OF THE COMPETITION! THIS MAN MUST BE CRAZY TO BYPASS BOBBY ACKBERALI FOR AN AMERICAN GUY WHOSE DESIGNS ARE REALLY NOT THAT IMPRESSIVE.

I REALLY HAVE TO WONDER. IF MR LEE THINKS GABBY'S BEAUTY CAN SAVE ANY GOWN HE WILL HAVE ANOTHER THING COMING WHEN THEY SEE WHAT THE OTHER DELEGATES ARE WEARING.

Has anyone had a look at Von Vonni's designs. My gosh, his evening wear is horrible. Am I supposed to just assume he is going to get an evening gown right. If I was Gabby I would call up Bobby Ackberali or Anya and ask either to pull something together in about 2 weeks, fly out if she has to and get the fittings down because I am expecting a disaster come MU prelims if she wears a Von Vonni's dresse. Trinis in general have the consensus that in terms of a pageant gown for MU his previous work looks like CRAP but my gosh the taste level of some of their suggestions from his collection is really poor. I think the only Trinbagonian Missosology poster with a level of taste suitable for MU I have seen is Cello.

All I can say is, if Von Vonni is the competition gown designer then most likely Gabby will be clapping come MU final. I hope for once Gabby OPENS HER MOUTH and gives Ian a piece of her mind if he tries to put her in a piece of crap for the MU prelims. I am just hoping she is not distracted by the "bubble" of YES people around the pageant team that will praise a mediocre gown as if it was the best thing they have ever seen.

...Von Vonni was asked to supply one of the gowns that Gabby will wear for one of the MU events such as the charity auction or something to this effect because some of his clothes looks just plane cheap and tacky while others look like horrible drapes he stole from an abandoned house 50 years ago.

Gabby needs to wear a gown that look light and has great movement when she is walking. I am just at a total loss as to who in their right mind would pick Von Vonni. This cannot be an objective choice of designer if he is indeed supplying the final gown. Something stinks!

I am sorry but Gabby will be clapping for the MU final if they put her in one of this guy's designs. I hope Mr. Lee gets a Bobby Ackberali design. I am just dumbfounded at the fact we have so many talented local designers but yet we chose an American from NYC (wonder if he has ties to MU headquarters) to design the gown when everything he has produced thus far is certainly not of MU calibre.

Mr. Lee needs to realize that MUorg does not give a rat's behind about who designs her gown. Gabby will not be wearing the MUSA sash so they need to realize it did not work with LaToya so let's not screw Gabby over by getting a crap gown from someone who obviously is not up to the worldclass standards.

... based on the pics from today on the Agent R.E.D. International blog. Folks, I am sorry but I don't see anything good. Yes the hot pink is bold but I don't see anything that indicates this gown will help Gabby place in the top 10 in prelims. Gabby is very beautiful- arguable one of the top 5 most beautiful- but this gown does nothing to help her. From what I am seeing in the pics, I think Anya Ayoung Chee could have done a much better design if given two weeks.

If the gown ends up looking great I will say so but for now I am TOTALLY WORRIED!

Thanks for posting the pics Beauty Seeker. The costume certainly has the Brazil vibe (I guess this is from the Take me to Brazil secition). It will be be one of the 10 best with some tweaking.

I know Harts could have done a better job but it is hard to say anything bad about this costume because Gabby looks so georgeous in it- at least they remembered that this is a beauty pageant where we are marketing Gabby. I think the Brazilian public would love it. Top 10 in NC-YES!

I am keeping my fingers crossed that the gown is a Bobby Ackberali design. I have to confess though that I was expecting Gabs' gown to be red but considering the costume is red, I now don't know what to expect. Let's hope it is a costume that has a very bold and sexy impact.

As of now, I would say I am expecting a really realistic grab for a top 8 spot from Gabby if she delivers well in the prelims. However, with the right gown that really showcases her face (as well as this costume does) she could possibly crack the top 4. The rest will be up to Gabby and God after that.

Presently, China is my #1 pick for the crown but I think I am being really naive about MU2011 judges being unbiased (if history is an indicator, then MUSA should be the clear favorite for the crown). In terms of a fair assessment though, MUSA is certainly not the most beautiful at this year's pageant and she looked a bit scrawny for her local finals but personally I think her appeal is that she can make a good 5 second impact in SS and gown better than most delegates. If I had to look at her face continuously for 30 secs I personally think she looses alot of appeal.
So for now China and USA are the top pics for the crown, Brazil will definitely be in the top 15/16 (No I don't see any reason for her being detroned-the topless photo was obviouly for a modeling gig and it was tastefully done). I also think Angola will be up there in the top 16 along with PR. These are the 5 I am sure of.

Gabby cannot take anything for granted. She has to compete and compete well during the prelims to place in the top 10 for a guaranteed top 16 placement. Truth be told, if it was just down to beauty, Gabs would be top 5 easily.

At the very least I expect some tweaking. Gabby said that it is one "version" of her costume but I don't see changing the color of costume as any big deal but it will be very interesting to see if they in fact do a total overhaul and make the costume bigger. For now, I think this is a pretty good effort, not excellent but I am very impressed that it does highlight the beauty of Gabby's face.

Whilst i am of the opnion that Miss Walcott possess the necessary pre-reqisites to do well in Brazil.........keep in mind , delegate would be bringing their "A' game to town.
That being said, the team behind her must be very strategic in every approach and at every count.The costume in my opinion thus far, lacks creativity, and i sincerely hope that this is what it is " a version" of the actually show.
None the less, i do wish Miss Walcott all the best in Brazil.
P.S........I hope Bobby Ackbarali is doing the evening gown. A word to the wise is sufficient!

Well we all know Tribe is the official National Costume designer of MUTT and considerning I have heard nothing to indicate otherwise, it appears that Gabby will be wearing one of Tribe's individual costumes at MU. Tonight the band launch will be streamed live via Triniscene.com (or you can view it via the Tribe Carnival Facebook page) from 11 pm. I hope to see some pics tomorrow. Gabby is one of the models in the teaser vid so I think it is 99% possible that the costume she models tonight is her National Costume (just like La Toya last year).

I really don't mean any offence to the Tribe camp but I was really hoping the Harts mas camp would do Gabs' costume. Harts is like the Alexander McQueen of medium sized individual costumes - very dramatic, intricate and intersting from any angle. To be blunt I hope the Tribe camp does not F#ck up Gab's costume because all they are know for is predominately beads and bikinis. La Toya's costume last year was good not great. It is freaking BRAZIL we are talking about and we should send Gabby in a costume that can WIN the NATIONAL COSTUME COMPETITION AND AT THE VERY LEAST SET THE BRAZILIAN TONGUES WAGGING.

TRIBE BETTER COME GOOD TONIGHT!

Subject: Our 2008 reps making waves in 2011!

If someone had told me back in 2008 our 2 reps would be making waves in the international arena in 2011, I probably would have called them crazy.

Anya has now been comfirmed as one of the 20 designers on Project Runway which begins airing on TV at the end of the month. I am so happy for her. I genuinely like her clothes and I love her creativity. She is going to make us Trinis proud. It is still a bit sad though that the local media is now reporting her 2009 sex-tape as the BIG STORY again. They totally did not put any importance on her as a designer, her work, or the fact that she is on one of the most successful international fashions shows in the world. Sad!!!

Personally, I myself felt a little embarrassed for her when the tape came out but the truth of the matter was she just made a stupid decision to have it filmed. Someone got a hold of a copy by hacking and well the rest is history. I don't see the need to beat a dead dog. It's 2011 and Trinbagonians need to get over it. The young lady is a geat new designer and she is doing something positive with her life. I don't see anyone bashing Kim Kardashian so why pong our own who is really doing something wonderful with her life.

Now as for Gabby, what can I say. In my opinion, she is one of the five most beautiful delegates at MU this year. I am currently predicting a top 10/8 finish but truth be told, if she make top 3 I would not be surprised. It all depends on what the final judges are looking for and who they like. So for now I am predicting top 8 and possibly a top 4 finish. She has the face of a winner and is really intelligent so anything can happen if she cracks the top 4. Admittedly, if she makes the top 4, she could possibly win. There, I said it!

In closing, all I can say is I am immensely proud of both Anya and Gabby, once again.

Hey guys just wanted to catch up with my pageant peeps. I hv to say that the pageant company has learnt its lesson from last year and gabby looks stunning. When I first saw that iPhone pic on fb I literally said "WDMC Gabby looks stunning". She looks like she lost some weight and looks very trim especially around the waist area. Here hair, what can I say about that, who ever is doing the styling this yr kudos to you it looks great. Gabby really looks like Ly Jonaitis, the resemblance is uncanny.

OK about the height issue Gabby I believe is 5`8, I personally do not see a problem since most of these young ladies lie about their heights and average around the 5"8 5"9 range. Miss Panama who is a huge favorite is 5"8 so.

The Miss Jamaica pageant has turned into an international fiasco. I do not and do not endorse any boby bashing any delegates but I will say this to the Miss Jamaica fans - stop trying to drag our girls into this. The cheap pot shots about Wendy was an average looking Miss universe are uncalled for. I am sorry that miss Zack did not win but alas that is not our fault. This is the last time I will speak of this as I do not get into sparring matches.

On to the issue at hand I only hv a few delegates that hv caught my eyes. A lot of these girls are photoshop queens. Still waiting for them to arrive before I make a Top 15 list. But for now Gabby remains solidly in my Top 5 not becuz she is MiissTnT

If I was just judging the ladies based on beauty only then Gabby would probably be in my top 5 also. However, we all know that around 2008 that height began to play in much bigger role that it did before in terms of placement. Gabby is in fact 5'6"-5'7". Most of the online info indicates she is 5'7" but the Globalbeauties interview indicate that she is about 5'6.5".

Regardless, I am really keeping my fingers crossed that the judges would like Gabby's look alot and she would advance to at least the top 8.

Now C, after all these years I have to give you some props. I was wondering if Gabs lost any pic when I saw the iPhone photo but I could not tell. I always remember you saying Kenisha's legs were slim for MU06 when we on this board were all still very worried. So I am taking your word about Gab's weight loss as totally true... and yes I am relieved. Gabs was certainly not fat for the local final but it was obvious she needed to lose about 7-10 lbs and get that waist as tiny as possible.

That being said, I hope that it has crossed the MUTT team to allow Gabby to NOT wear the MT&T sash for the evening gown competition in the final (and maybe in the prelims) if it takes away from her total figure. I hope no one pongs me for this but we have to be realistic, Gabby's torso is a bit shorter that the other big favorites for the title and I don't want her looking any shorter than she already is.

I just saw Gab's pic from last night (Sat. 9th July 2011). Whoever on the pageant team came up with the idea to lengthen her hair- hats off to you. I looks fantastic. Gabby's hair for MU will look really sexy. Additionally, Mr. Lee's stylist is really doing a great job (although I think Gabby has alot of input into her wardrobe). I am pretty sure she was wearing one of the outfits she will be dingolaying in San Paulo with.

I am already seeing a sexy, sophisticated look yet the good taste remains. Gabby is literally battling tall glamazons come Aug-Sept. I expect her to probably be the shortest delegate to make the top 15 cut on merit come Sept. 12.

I hope the pageant team keeps the sex appeal flowing with Gabby for MU because she already is one of the most beautiful at the competition but the sex appeal will help her to stand out as a COMPETITOR and not just a 'pretty face'

China is now my fav for the crown followed by Angola. USA is alright but as I have said previously, Gabby has the face of a winner and she would not look out of place in the top 4. I am really hoping she does way better than I expect.

Much love and support to Gabs and the MUT&T crew!

Well if the report is true, MU2013 will be held in Panama. As for the 2012 edition of the pageant, it appears Jamaica is strongly being considered as the host.

That being said, MJU 2011 is this weekend (if I recall correctly) and I am seeing alot of Jamaicans raving about her (Chantal Zacky) as if she is the second coming of Yendi. Maybe it is just me, but I don't see this young lady doing anything at MU. She could not even hold a candle to LaToya. Anyways, it will be interesting to see if Jamaica does in fact host the 2012 event. If Jamaica is indeed the host then it is quite possible MUorg will place her in the final 15 and kick out a delegate who made the cut on merit.

Anyways, we will have to wait for Saturday to see the outcome of their local competition.

... I am happy that Panama will host the pageant again.

As for Jamaica being shortlisted as a possible host for the 2012 edition of the international event, after the debacle that was their final last night, or should I say this morning, I expect that the visiting officials from MU were pretty pissed off. I would not be surprised if the current Jamaican franchise holder lost the MU rights.

These are currently the MU2011 delegates who I will be watching out for come Aug 28:

1. Trinidad and Tobago
2. USA
3. Puerto Rico
4. Mauritus
5. Angola
6. Ghana
7. Israel
8. Kosovo

Off my list: Venezuela (too inconsistent). I totally got my MV mixed-up when I was looking at TV. But really, do any of us expect MV to miss the semis two years in a row? I don't recall if that has ever occurred.

Anyways, there are usually about 20-25 delegates who look interesing before arrival but after the first week of competition you could always tell who are the 4 or 5 big favorites and which ladies were just photoshop divas.

Now add China. She could possibly crack the top 5 this year. Along with Angola,she is in the running for the MU2011 crown. However, it will be interesing to see if the majority Ameican judging panel will not crown USA since it appears that MUorg now wants a win for the USA.

I know that this was a recent post on Gabby's FB page but is it just me or is this not a pic from her 2008 portfolio for MW? Did she not do a Trinidad Express Womanwise article in 2008 where the cover page was her pic of her with this or a similar outfit?

I guess by now the unphotoshopped pics of Gabs at Flug Tag (or whatever you call it) today are making their rounds all over the internet. My gosh, this is by far the best I have seen Gabs look since she screened at MTTU2011. All that nonsense about how old she is just flew right out the door with these new pics. She looks fresh and young and I definitely want to see more.

I will say it again- Gabs is one of the 10 most beautiful ladies at MU this year.

Bravo Gabs! Dam#! Anya going to play mas on Bravo with her designing skills. I loved Anya's wrap and Gabs styling is certainly fresh. Her hair looks way better than it did at the MUTT2011 final.

I am so very excited to see Gabs in Brazil.

Now on an aside, it was good to see some past queens also and I have to admit that I think Valene should screen for MUTT 2012.

...so this is the point in time that I admit that facially, Gabby is the the best in the Caribbean region. Facially, she is top 5 easily.

I know we are all concerned about her height but I have to say that in spite of her stature 5'7" or so, she stands out because of her body frame. I am really hoping she places in the semis. I am actually hoping for at least a top 10 finish.

I am still a bit confused of what the MU format will be this year. Considering how weak the African representaion is perennially, how the heck can the regional format introduced at MUSA2011 translate into something viable? Maybe "the islands" will be lumped together with Africa. Additionally, Europe and Latin America then to always be strong...well I guess we should just wait and see.

Tribe's band launch is in 3 weeks. I still hope the Harts mascamp would do Gabby's national costume for Miss Universe 2011. Given that Gabs is one of the official models for Harts 2012, I guess we can expect candid pics of her for their bandlaunch on August 12, just about 2 weeks before her departure for Miss Universe.

P.S. Whoever on the pageant team who did Gabs hair for Flug Tag deserves a pat on the back because her hair looked fantastic and really brought out the beauty in her face. She looked better in these pics at Flug Tag than she did in pics at the Miss World 2008 final.

Trini77 here what's I think happened and why up to this day still very upset that La Toya missed the Top15. I do think that she made the top 15 on her own merit and was replaced. When I heard that she was in the dress rehersal top 15 I knew that she wouldn't make it that night.

In all seriousness did anyone find that Miss Colombia was more facially beautiful than La Toya??? Is Ukraine going to keep making the semis as a makeup for there now national director being left out in 2004?? Miss Russia had the personally if a wet rag! Miss South Africa didn't impress at all. Guatemala ok she was cute but cute doesn't win beauty pageants. Ireland Trump wanted to sleep with and lets face it she had toooo much collagen and botox. Philippines had her sob story and Jamaica was the quintessential black delegate so therfore no La Toya.

Whewww needed to get that off my chest!!! On to 2011, Gabby has one of the most beautiful faces of this years group. I am tired of seeing less facially strong girls being hyped. The recently crowned Peru, Puerto Rico, Albania, Kosovo, Malaysia, Philippines ,Panama. Facially stunning girls to me are TnT, USA, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Angola to name a few.

I agree that Harts neeeddddsss to do Gabby's national costume. TRIBE dropped the ball last year. Gabby said that new pics should be coming out next week I look forward to them. Trini77 she has a new fb profile pic where she looks slimmer mos definitely and she looks great.

Good job Anya I actually like her clothes so good luck to her.

Considering that Gabby is a die-hard HARTS masquerader, I wonder if the Harts camp will get together with the Tribe camp to come up with Gabs' national costume. Truth be told, I am very grateful for Tribe's perennial support of MTT but I have to say that I would prefer it if the HARTS Camp came up with her costume this year.

Brazil has the largest carnival in the world but Gabby's costume should be one that should show them that Trini Carnival is certainly the most creative.

Anyways, Tribe's band launch is July 23 with Harts band launch on the 12th August. If Gabs is one of the models at Tribes' launch then the costume she is wearing will most likely be her competition costume.

I would love it though if she went with a large, innovative design that can blow everyone away at the National Costume Competition rather than just one of their 2012 individual designs- come on people, it's Brazil. We like to say our Carnival is the best, well we finally have a once in a lifetime chance to prove it. Tribe better not disappoint!

According to Gabby, Anya has been confirmed as a designer on the new season of Project Runway. I hope she makes it all the way to the final. I personally like her work and she is the best designer I have seen to come out of T&T in the last 5 years. No one else comes to mind.


On the aside, only about 9 weeks left for MU to start. I am really excited to see what Gabby's body looks like in Brazil and also moreso how she really stacks up against the other delegates in the absence of photoshop.

I personally think she is easily one of the top 10 most beautiful at the pageant. If she made the top 4 she would not look out of place. However, we will have to see how the other delegates look in Brazil to see how COMPETITIVE she is. In my opinion, the USA is sending a strong delegate but she is beatable. MUSA was not the most beautiful in the top 16 nor in the top 4, but the final panel and half of the prelim panel will essentially be Americans so you never know. I still don't see her as the winner though (at least for now).

At present I have Gabs as a top 10 pick.

I hope the MUTTorg has learnt an important, especially this week after MUSA2010's interview where she said that the MUorg wanted to drum up attention for the MUSA2011 final show so they pushed rumors that she (Rima) was doing alot of partying and had her go on a fighting show (against her wishes), where she got injured. I know last year I said I saw nothing wrong with LaToya doing the topless shoot- I hope the local orgainzers realized that they screwed her over just to generate publicity. I always thought since the local 2010 final that LaToya, although competitive, would 'catch her as#' to make top 15 but if she did she would go far. In my opinion, she did enough to make top 15 on merit. I personally believe that she was removed from the final 15 by MUorg simply because she was seen a viable threat to win the title and beause she was too much model rather than beauty queen.

Last year's MU final was a literal white-wash, and yes I include Yendi. They all basically had the same skin tone and the only difference with Yendi was that she had some junk in the trunk. Everyone it seems had boob jobs and similar body types.

It will be interesting to see what happens in Brazil.

Over the last few years that I have actually watched the MUSA pageant, it seems that any changes that is implimented at the USA final also take place at the MU competition. This year there will be one semifinalist selected by online vote. The 16 semifinalists will then be cut to 8 and then to a top 4. It will be interesting to see if there is a global vote for the MU final. Personally, I don't like the online voting system as it is full of biases.

What do you guys think?

So I looked at the MUSA final last night and I have to say that I was not impressed with the new format. The only thing I thought was a little interesting was that they placed the 16 ladies in batches for the cut to the final 8. I don't know who the heck thought that a rolling spindle (a la Las Vegas casino style)that was competing for one-third of the TV screen was O.K. Que Horror!

If they want a take-away from this pageant for MU2011, then select a top 20, place them in four batches of 5 and then cut to 10, from there call the final 5 in random order (just like in previous years).

The new MUSA looks good but is literally bordering on being the face of Anorexia Nervosa- thank goodness for breast implants and red hair dye that ensured she did not look like a skeleton. I hope the MUTT and MWTT organizations take away one thing from her EG performance- if it was not for that big attachment on her green gown, she would not have gone that far- Hats off to the designer, if he/she had done the same color gown with a total body-fitting form from top to bottom she would have looked like skeletor in green. The gown was not the best but it was certainly the right color and it really showed up the now current MUSA in a good light.

Let's hope the local pageant teams put our 2 fantastic reps in gowns that really showcase the ladies in the best light. This nonsense that Peter Elias did last year of getting a great gown and then assuming we will do well in EG was just too unprofession and foolish for someone of his caliber to be doing this far (in terms of time and experience)into pageantry.

Stack all our previous gowns and designers together,and hands down no one comes close to Bobby Ackberali - THE GUY UNDERSTANDS A WOMAN'S BODY MORE THAN ANY OF THESE EXPERTS COULD-IF EITHER PAGEANT HOUSE DOES NOT PUT OUR DELEGATE IN A BOBBY ACKBERALI DESGN THIS YEAR THEN THEY BETTER COME WITH THEIR A-GAME BECAUSE TRINIS WILL RIP THEM A NEW ONE IF WE DO NOT PLACE!

Trini77 I agree with you. I think that a gown like ZuhairMurad, Elie Saab or Roberto Cavalli or something that is similar is what I want to see Gabby in.

In terms of facial beauty gabby top MANY of the so called favs in that category namely Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Panama and even Malaysia. I just do not see 'it's with these ladies.

Also I like that gabby is flying under the radar and does not hv a lot of pics out there. Over saturation is tedious. As much as I love Peter Elias he totally dropped the ball with La Toya's dress last year.
I was watching the Miss USA prelims and I loved Miss California's dress and the fact that it set her apart from the 50 other girls. Love it or hate it it was the only green dress and totally high fashion which is what Miss USA/Universe is now.

I cannot wait to see Gabby's transformation and I hv a feeling that it is going to be exceptional. Lee Ann looks Fab by the way. Is it just me or is Wendy mentoring Gabby?




is wendy some kind

I really hope they go all out. O.K. I have a confession, I was looking at the gold and brown Harts costume Gabs wore about 2 or 3 years ago (not the black and gold from last year)- did you guys notice the delicate work that went into the entire bikini section (pelvis to shoulder) section. It was very intricate, skin-tight and almost nude at the same time. I was wondering if Bobby could marry this concept with a gown. Bobby has gowns we have not seen before and he is also a costume designer. I think he can nail a very dramatic gown presentation for Gabs.

I guess we will have to wait and see what transpires, but they have no other choice than to get a gown that is very form fitting - Gabby is going to have one of the most tapered bodies in the pageant- I can't wait to see the transformation come August. 4 weeks have gone and about 9 are left before her departure for Brazil.

I have to say I am officially in love with Gabs' body- it may not be the typical MU mold we are accustomned but dam#, she is all woman. Hats off to whoever convinced her to get the boob job.

...I have to say that at MW I was pleasantly surprised to see her in the top 16- she looked much better in gown but in my opinion she was bordering on stick-like. I know alot of people have her in there top 5 currently, but I would not be surprised if she turned up in Brazil, and Gabby looked hotter and placed higher.

Angola

and let's be realistic, 2 spots are already reserved for USA and Brazil. No way will they not place USA 2 years in a row.

In random order:
1. Miss Angola (possible winner, but let's wait to see untouched photos of her in Brazil; in the past decade the few dark skinned delegates that could have realistically grabbed the MU title have all NOT made the semis- YES, I THINK IT IS A FOREGONE CONCLUSION THAT MUorg IS REMOVING THEM FROM THE FINALS - PERIOD!!!)
2. Miss Venezuela (top 5)- The true example of make-up taking a plane jane to the georgeous level. Facially with make-up she is beautiful, without make-up she is just average. Great body for the EG segment though.
3. Malysia (top 10)
4. Gabby (top 10)- most beautiful in the Caribbean currently but I think PR will be more competitive at MU because of her height.
5. Puerto Rico (top 5, could win)

Maybe, it is just me but I just don't get the fanfare about Miss Bahamas. She is certainly not what I would call a MU beauty but she has a unique body shape so she can possibly scrape into the top 15.

Jamaica, in my opinion will not make the top 15 at all based on their fav. for the crown. Maybe I am just lost when I don't see the "top contender for the MU crown" in their line-up that they keep raving about online.

for now Kosovo looks like a top 5 possibility...
Miss Ireland- I don't see her placing
Miss Philippines - I think she is top 30. I have no idea how she actually looks because there is just so much photoshop out there. She looked inconsistent at her local final though in terms of beauty. For now I don't see her in the top 15.
Curacao - to paraphase C, if MU was a competition of side pics she would probably win. I just don't see it with her but my gosh, she photoshops well.

It will be really interesting to see who really stands out in candid pics in Brazil come September. I am sure about Gabby and Venezuela because I have seen them on video on television. The rest, we will have to wait and see...

LaToya = great Model, Lee Ann Forbes = great beauty queen.

Lee Ann is going to do great at MU (assuming she nails the interview and remains humble).

Gabby and Lee Ann are going to get us back to being one of the top beauty pageant nations in the world this year.

For now, I think Gabby is in top 15 contention and see her as placing in the top 10 (8th or 9th, maybe 7th).

Lee Ann in my opinion should win MW but if she places out of the top 3 then I would have to say Mr. Ragunanan does not know what the heck he is doing. However, as the old saying goes, everything happens for a reason. PE and Adrian Raymond apparently have migrated towards the MWTT team this year due to the LaToya-Mr. Lee debacle. With Adrian doing the interview prep and Bobby Ackberali (THERE CAN BE NO OTHER CHOICE) of gown I am expecting a win.

Both local franchise holders have done the smart thing by not doing anymore photo shoots/releases to the public. I don't want to see any official shots of Gabby until the last week of July (that is 2-3 weeks before MU kicks off). Lee Ann needs to arrive in England and build her fan following from there. The candid pics are great for now.

I can't wait to see what Gabby's gown will be like but she needs something that pulls in her waist as much as possible and complements her great boobs. I would really like to see what Bobby would do if given the opportunity to design a MU gown for Gabby.

[> [> Subject: Agree with you totally Trini77. I think these two ladies can put T&T back on the map. I actually think it is a great thing that happened that Peter Elias and Adrian Raymond is now part of the Miss World T&T Org. They needed the expert help of these people. I also think the Miss Universe T&T Org. is doing a great job right now. I cant wait to see both ladies do well at their respective pageants.

...I really have to echo your sentiments. Based on the local screenings and final, it appears that the MUTTorg is still a force to be recokned with. I am personally breathing a sigh of relief that we don't have to think PE is the do-all end-all of the TT pageant scene.

That being said, win or lose, placement or no placement, Gabby will have alot of tongues wagging when she dingolays in Brazil. I would have loved to see her in a Harts costume but I think Tribe is the official national costume sponsor.

The stunning Philippine island of Bohol is a natural wonder, perfectly shielded from the vicious weather that blights many of the other nearby islands by being shielded on all sides, and so able to develop undisturbed into a perfect (if slightly tourist-ridden), picturesque centre of scuba diving, sailing and animal watching.

The incredible Chocolate Hills -- arguably Bohol's biggest draw -- poke like giant molehills through the forest canopies, more than 1,000 of them dominating a surreal skyline on what - legend has it - is a district formed by ancient giants bombarding each other with handfuls of sand.

It is believed to be an island which used to be submerged in water, which explains why there are a number of underground caves in this area. A popular cave to go to is the Hinagdanan caves in Panglao island.

Of course, being a tropical island, there's plenty in the way of beaches and water-based adventures, too. Scuba diving -- or at least snorkeling -- here is practically essential, and all takes place off rustic boats floating near coral-strewn, white sand beaches. The more adventurous can indulge in dolphin or whale watching, while incredible seashells (be careful of customs restrictions -- and never take anything live) sprinkle the beach.

All in all, Bohol is a slightly less obvious island destination than the typical Philippines holiday, and -- with its local take on culture and laid back vibe -- all the better for it.

I hope the Miss Trinidad and Tobago world team utilizes Alyson Brown's expertise in training Lee Ann for her stage performance. Lee Ann's stage performance is her strong point but we all know that Alyson has a special formula for the girls where the stage is concerned. Her work is more or less a signature. When I see girls like Lean Mari, Maggie, Valene, Kenisha and others walk you know that they were trained by the catwalk stalwart Alyson. Hope she is part of the team soon. Lee Ann menas business folks. This girl could bring it home. This year is 25 years since Giselle's crowing by the way.

Just being the Devil's Advocate. Miss World 2011 will be held in London England. Given Jack Warner's "love affair" with the British press, how would this impact Lee Ann's chances wearing the Trinidad and Tobago Sash in London ?

Glow you are a true Trini- you know how to enjoy a baccannal to the fullest.

Personally, I don't think Mrs. Morley would care. Don't know about the other judges though but really, it would be a big stretch and pretty pathetic if the Warner issue impacts their view of our candidate.

I am expecting a top 3 finish from Lee Ann and personally speaking she should win or be the 1st runner up at the least.

Yeah , Trini77......i just hope Tanty Julia don't get too carried away with the Uncle Jack commess. But on a serious note Lee Ann has to walk with her A+ game plan and hit the bulls dead centre with an attitude that is just a shade above "totally confident" and a shade below "arrogant".

...but Gabby has to fight for a top 15 spot first. If Lee Ann does not make it to at least the top 3 of MW then the franchise holder has no idea what he is doing. Lee Ann could realistically win the international competition.

Considering he did the interview prep. for the local final of MW, I am assuming that Adrian Raymond will be doing the interview prep. I am very optimistic of Lee Ann's chances of bringing home the crown.

As for Gabby, I have to confess that I personally think her body looks more appealing now as compared to how she looked back in 2008. I love the ab definition. Gabby needs to get her waist as tiny as possible. She will be one of the 10 most beautiful ladies at the competition but we all know the fascination with height that MU judges have. Personally, I think she is a realistic competitor for a top 10 spot in the prelims if all goes well. If she makes top 15 then I would say she will be top 10. The rest is up to God and the judges.

I know I may sound like a broken record, but I think Bobby Ackberali should do the competition gowns for our two reps. this year. He tends to be right on for gown designs that can really complement and enhance a lady's beauty. Case in point - LaToya looked at least 10 times better in the white gown Bobby gave her to wear at MU last year than the black and gold number that everyone was at MUTTorg was raving about (the only drawback were LaToya's small boobs- larger breasts would have looked better).

Author Host/IP: cuscon2388.tstt.net.tt/209.94.210.210

The post-pageant final criticism of Gabrielle in my opinion is just simply racism. No one wants so say it and I may get pounded for hitting the nail on the head but there can be no other explanation. No one had anything to say about Kenisha Thom and Madelene Walcott along with another MW 2nd runner-up, Michelle Khan, representing us for the 2nd time at MU. The blatant double standard of Trinbagonians is utterly indefensible.

Now moving on, based on what LaToya said in the Trinidad Guardian newspaper article "Sweet and Sour end to Miss T&T Universe" (dated 19 May 2011), Peter Elias, Adrian Raymond, Calvin French and Leah Marie Guevara (apart from herself) had nothing to do with this year's MUTT pageant.

I don't know what really transpired and personally I really don't give a flying fish about individual personalities. I just care about branding T&T on the international market. I have to say that I am glad that other people got to wet their feet in the pageant arena because for the longest while it seemed like the same people have had a controlling interest in the beauty preparations with no one with real natural talent being trained to take over the pageants for future years. I KNOW the Ribero guy and a few others have being working along with pageant teams for a while but I have to say that he along with the semifinalist judges at MUTT2010 don't know what the HEL# they are doing when it comes to selecting a competitive PAGEANT delegate. Calvin French is another who should just not open his mouth without thinking becauause he called that international clapper we sent to MW last year a "big contender" for the MW crown. Peter Elias has had more gown flops with international competitors than all others on the local pageant scene and he is obviously not always right- case in point-La Toya Woods. I don't know where this mentatlity of "we should send the best MODEL to the MW and MU pageants" popped into the psyche of these people but in my opinion many great models could be sent and most would end up clapping.

We need pageant teams that are focused on getting a BEAUTY peageant rep. not a freakin' model. Some models can make the transition-others cannot. At last year's MUTT, only Jenna and Miss Arima should have been considered for the title. Jenna was eliminated in the semis (dotish judges- the only alternative is pageant rigging) and Miss Arima did not even make top 3 (are you people for real- the best body of the pageant did not make it). Scrawny LaToya, a rectangular body 1st runner-up with no behind and just an O.K. looking indian lady who I was not sure of as 2nd RU were the result. When the int'al final began and LaToya was a big hit, I thought that for the first time my local-final review was wrong but I did not (and still do not) think La Toya was what MUorg. was looking for. She is a fantastic model but absolutely NOT a beauty queen. We all know what happened.

PEOPLE, we are a small country-we will have to re-send reps. to international pageants. It is unavoidable. The point is, send competitive reps. not one the pageant team likes or the public likes - OUR REP. SHOULD BE THE ONE THE MU AND MW organizations LIKES-PERIOD!!!

Congrats to Mr. Nathan on the local screenings. Gabby will definitely have international pageant fans talking when she dingolays in Brazil and Shinequa will be a future international pageant top 3 finalist (at the very least) in my opinion. The best 2 were in the top 2 spots this year-which is a drastic improvement from that MUTT2010 disaster. I hope Bobby designs Gabby's gown - I am sure it will be much better than LaToya's because Bobby in my opinion, understands a woman's body moreso than Peter Elias could, and he will design a gown that will showcase Gabby's beauty the best - NOT that crap of "let's get a great gown and then believe we will get a great EG score" without stopping to think this is not a modelling gig to showcase clothes-it's a freakin pageant to SHOWCASE THE YOUNG LADY wearing it.

... has the beauty and stage presence to win either Miss Universe or Miss World. Truthfully though, I know no one wants to say it but I have gotten the distinct impression over the years that Trump wants very commercial, light-skinned winners, so I am a bit apprehensive about sending Shanequa to MU. (I still think though that she would be a favorite among the judges. If she won the prelim competition I would not be surprised.)

I have to say it, if Shanequa is prepped properly and has the confidence needed, she will never participate in both MU or MW- she will win whichever international pageant she goes to initially.

2012 will be a very interesting year- Valene is back in T&T after recently completing her business degree. She will be 26 in April next year. She says she plans to pursue furture studies. Will she screen or was her stint as MWTT2007 enough for her?

Anyways, I can't wait for MU2011 to kick off. At the very least, Gabs is going to have alot of people talking. The toughest thing for Gabs to do is make top 15. Once she is there, anything can happen.

I just heard on the TV6 evening news LaToya say that she was not invited to crown her successor and that she was disappointed since she though that she had earned that right. According to the report, she claims that her relationship with the franchise holder deteriorated last year after she did not get some of her prizes and money from ads that she did.

Mr Lee however, claimed that LaToya was invited to the final in the presence of another person and also by email.

What is ridiculous about this report, is that people are claiming the pageant was rigged. Well for anyone who watched the pageant, it is quite apparent the pageant would be rigged if anyone other than Gabby and Shinequa made top 2. If Renee had won then I would say the pageant was rigged and concomitantly the pageant team was freakin blind.

It is amazing how poorly people can behave in this country.

The only weird thing that panned out the placements was the fact that Janette Manchoon (not sure about the spelling)did not make the final eight. Her body was freakin' hot. However, I don't know how tall she is but I thought she looked like 5'7" from the pics.

Anyways, the best of the night won- Congratulations Gabby for a job well done.

Arrivals will be on the 26th and 27th August, with the pageant officially commencing on 28th August.
31st August - National Costume competition
7th September - Preliminary competition to choose the top 15 (I am assuming this referes to the Presentation Show)
12th September - Miss Universe Final

There are only 2 weeks of competiton so let's hope MUTTorg. does not send her looking "hard" like LaToya last year. Gabby needs to slim down the waistline a bit and show us and the judges a little sex appeal (just a taste, not the whole meal though).

She has just over 2 months to prep. I know that she is a diligent worker. Please Gabs, remember this is MU and not MW so we need to see some sex appeal. Additionally, I hope the MUTTorg. now tells all our future reps. to not pose nude or topless even if the MUorg. asks them to. Nothing less that a full SS should be on our delegate for any photoshoot.

According to the Missosology forum, the central theme of the event is Carnival, beaches, football and Amazonia, the emblematic images of the South American giant.

As I said before, everyting is in place for Gabby to do the best that she could at a MU competition. She looks Brazillian and T&T and Brazil share a love of carnival, colour, music and dance. I really hope they design a national costume that can WOW the Brazillian public - it would generate a tremendous amount of attention about Trini Carnival if we beat Brazil in the national costume competition.

I just hope that MUorg does not decide to do an online vote again and it is really a National Costume competition as indicated by the news release in Brazil.

Trini77 not only on MUTT FB page, apparently Rachel Price is a beauty pageant expert as well. I persoanlly like Rachel but she don't know shit when it comes to beauty pageants and the standards that Trump has now placed on Miss Universe.

This is NOT the pageant of yesteryear, I know that is what we are accustom to BUT the is GONE and we need to change with the times. Tonight was the first step in that direction.

So to all the CRABS IN A BARREL do not come pageant nite when Gabby makes top 5 say I always knew she would do it.

Congrats to Gabby job well done. I aam sadden though bcuz Gabby is being vilified and ripped to shreds on FB by Renee supports and Renee's family. In contrast Gabby's family has been supportive of ALL the girls and even reprimanded a few posters about said about other contestants. I am NOT saying that Renee is behind this but I understand that emotions are running high and we need to chill. We in this country are always ready to bring down each other. I am soooooo FED UP with that.

The funny thing is Gabby is getting more support from international fans than fans in TnT. If she win now it will be "I love her from the start!!" It was nice to see Wendy crown Gabby. I felt like she was passing the torch and crowning her sucessor for the third crown from Trinidad and Tobago.

Congrats to Gabby you are going to rock Sao Paulo!!!!!!!!!

...I just took a peek at the MUTT FB page and I have to say that I am utterly disgusted by the posts of these people. Someone from the pageant committee needs to get on their computer right now and delete those posts.

I think you said it best. The real stalwarts and pageant critics are on this forum. On FB it is like a free for all for the 'fly-by-night' pageant followers.

P.S. I am also hoping that Bobby Ackberali designs the competition gowns of both our MU and MW reps. this year.

So as we all know by now Gabby is our rep. and hats off to her. She will have to work her as# off to place but my gosh, we are realistically competing for a top 15 spot at a beauty pageant (and not a modelling gig like last year's local final). I can't wait to see what the national costume will be like. Will Brazil or T&T show off who has the better Carnival costume designers?

The big smile on my face however is not because of Gabby. I am officially, for the first time, going to classfy a local delegate as an "UNSTOPPABLE BEAUTY"- I am in fact speaking about Shanequa. No one, that includes Gabby, came close in SS or gown. I absolutely have to say that although she is certainly does not resemble Wendy, she is the 21st century upgrade of Wendy with better boobs. WHEN, and I do mean WHEN, SHANEQUA gets to MISS WORLD/MISS UNIVERSE NEXT YEAR, NO WAY IS SHE OUT OF THE TOP 3 IN SS AND GOWN. I DON'T CARE WHO TURNS UP - SHE IS TOP 3 IN BEAUTY. I really hope she is prepped over the next few months with Gabby for a 2012 win at MWTT 2012 as I think Mrs Morley and the Miss World organization will see her as a top contender for the crown. I am already predicting that she could win both the Beach Beauty and Top Model awards (a feat no woman has done before). The women who I though were unstoppable when I saw them on video, all eventually went on to win their respective competitions, namely Natalie Globeva (Canada, MU 2005), Zhang Zilin (China, Miss World 2007) and Knesia Sukhinova(Russia, Miss World 2008).

I can't wait to see Shenequa at MISS WORLD 2012. This young lady could win either MW or MU. I cannot express how excited I am about the 2012 pageant season - 2012 will be Shanequa's year to blow the international competition out of the water.

...Shanequal just has me so bazodee.

SS competition:
-hated the SS because I wanted to see the ladies not a set of fabric all over the place.
-Greer looked extremely petite and was literally swallowed whole by the SS...for a minute I thought they just cut off the bottom of her gown...LOL! What a pity!
- only 3 stood out: Miss Unstoppable herself Shanequa was my pick for most beautiful body (no one came close), 2nd Gabby and 3rd Kristy St. Rose

Gown Competition:
-relieved to see the gowns were totally different from those posted on the website
-only 2 interesed me: Shanequa (absolutely stunning and beautiful, like Wendy at MU1998),and in second place Gabby.
-Greer looked good but really petite
-I hated Kristy's gown- this was absolutely not a competition because the gown actually make her look fat. Someone needs to burn that gown.

My top 3: Truthfully, I did not care either way who was the 3rd person once Shanequa and Gabby were there.
I was shocked when I heard LaTisha named as one of the final 3 (absolutely wonderful personality but I think we all know she could do nothing at MU).

-Again, looking at Shanequa and Gabby. I did not know who could win. Shanequa has a beautiful voice and even though she was very nervous and gave a poorly constructed answer, I could tell she has a brain.
-Truthfully, Shanequa could have won this and I would be celebrating big time. However, realistically I want her to be in top form for an international competition and 12 weeks is simply not enough time.
-I am so happy Gabby won but I cannot help but focus on Shanequa because she is just that good. God willing, this young lady is going to rock the international pageant scene to its foundations in 2012.

i JUST SAW THE END OF THE PAGEANT i DIDNT KNOW WHERE TO FIND IT.

My thoughts from the 2 sends I saw. Sheniqua looked stunning and I am actually excited to see her performance next year.

Gaby was a predictable winner and I reiterate that this entire exercise was not really to choose a delegate but to start training girls an entire year and a half before Miss Universe 2012. Look carefully you will see Sheniqua and the rest of the girls popping up in Fashion shows everywhere to start building that confidence.

Ok Gabby it is up to you now to represent us. You did it well the first time now PROVE ME WRONG AND BRING HOME OUR 3RD CROWN.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Trini77 I feel sometimes that when I read your posts that you are reading my mind!!!


The gown photos,lord where to begin!!! The gowns themselves are atrocious I pray and hope that Bobby is doing the competition gown come September!!! The girls look great though. Here are a few thoughts:

Renee - Trini77 I agree with you that you see the dress first and then the girl which is not good!! Look at Yendi last year, ALL you saw was her face and not that blue atrocity she had on!!! Case in point to Miss Switzerland 2006, Lauriane Gilleron, MU 2nd runner up and the 80's prom dress she had hello all you saw was face. Renee got lost to me with all that hair. She also needs to hv a frontal beauty if this was a pageant of side pics she would win hands down.

Greer - Hit and miss facially to me!!! In this photo she looked OLD!!!!! The lines around her mouth were SO pronounced!!!!

Shinequa - Please smile!!! This is a pageant and not a model casting!! I have yet to see her smile.

Jessica - Facially exquiste, needs to work on that body!!!

Kristy - Nicely done

Gabby - WOW!!! Facially totally does it for me. This is a classic case of seeing the girl and not the dress!!!! Gabby personifies to me Miss Universe - full stop!!

Ok to the idiots and FB that are saying that Gabby should not win bcuz she had a boob job WHAT!!! That just goes to show that these are really fly by night fans and DO NOT follow the pageant scene. bcuz if that were true that statement wuld never hv been made considering that Lation contestants do extremely well.

I love that Gabby's brother and sister are defending her on facebook. Gabby it appears are giving the other girls tips and even dropping them off after practice. Gabby win or lose you r a beautiful person inside and out.


Good luck to all the girls tonite and may the BEST girl win. TnT will fly high again!!!

Meet your new Miss T&T/World
Lee Ann Forbes
By By Cedriann J Martin
Internet Source:
http://www.trinidadexpress.com/woman-magazine/Meet_your_new_Miss_T_T_World-121753214.html


Story Created: May 12, 2011 at 11:42 PM ECT

(Story Updated: May 12, 2011 at 11:42 PM ECT )

The saintly-meet-sexy veneer of beauty pageants is gone. Post Wendy we know that queens (gasp) have pre-marital sex. In the aftermath of Anya we make peace with the fact that some of them (shudder) record it. And after La Toya's 2010 showing we grapple with the fact that (collapse) being photographed with body paint on their breasts isn't against some people's moral codes.

T&T's naiveté about the women who represent us at international pageants has been steadily eroded these past five years. Some think it's time we come to terms with the truth that these alleged super-women are humans. For others the magic is gone. But what of the throngs of women still scrambling for the gig?

Miss Trinidad and Tobago/World 2011, Lee Ann Forbes, is fresh-faced, soft-spoken and all of 20-years-old. She was seven when we earned our third and last major title and grew up hearing that her mother was often mistaken for our 1977 Miss Universe winner, Janelle Penny Commissiong. In much the same way that talkative children are told they should be lawyers, the pretty, tall and slender Forbes was advised that she should be a model, a beauty queen or both.

"Honestly it's always been something I wanted to do. I've been modeling for the last three to four years and wanted to take it to another level. I thought maybe I should try pageantry because people always tell me I have the pageant look," she said two days after her win. I ask whether she'd given thought to the fact that her life has now changed: everybody knows your name… and face… and their take on your flaws.

"I was a bit worried about that but I decided that this is what I want to do and if I represent Trinidad and Tobago in pageants it's something I'll have to face because once you're out there you can't go back," she said.

Raised in St James, Forbes attended Mucurapo Girls' RC and St Francois Girls' College before completing her Advanced Levels at the Polytechnic Sixth Form. She is currently pursuing a degree in geography and environment at the Academy of Tertiary Studies. While she hasn't decided on a career goal other than modelling she says it was important to both her and her parents that she has the safety net of an education.

"My parents told me you shouldn't just put all your eggs in one basket. I started the modelling thing and I'm good at it but nothing is guaranteed. You don't know if you will be a Tyra Banks modelling until whatever age," she reasoned. Her big night was sandwiched by exams and the intense six weeks she spent with seven other delegates working out, walking, exercising and practising interviews were inevitably sprinkled with study.

Asked why she thinks she was chosen, Forbes said that her stage-presence and physique were always strengths. Her primary area of concern was the personality segment. So much so that having been selected as a finalist for the same pageant last year she opted to pull out and train with a life coach on interview technique and opening up.

"I thought about it and decided that I wasn't ready (in 2010). I took that year to develop myself and build more self esteem," she revealed.

The final question that earned her the title and an opportunity to represent T&T in London in six months was pat pageant: which charity would she represent if crowned Ms Trinidad and Tobago? She opted for an organisation providing asistance to orphaned chidren. Who can argue with that?

I was curious about how she'd do on a couple tougher lines of inquiry. So here goes…

What did you make of the sex tape scandal as a member of the T&T public?

"Well, it was unfortunate that it had to happen. I think it's her private life and nobody should have taken the tapes or made them public. Unfortunately sometimes life plays out like that."

And were she in Ms Woods' high-heeled shoes, would she have done the topless photo-shoot?

"Honestly If I were in her shoes I would not have done the shoot. To my knowledge that isn't acceptable for pageants. I've done a lot of shoots and chose not to go topless. I've even turned down an offer to do a promotion that involved going topless with body paint. That's not really my thing. My standards are a bit different."

Succinct, simple and pretty as a picture, Lee Ann Forbes is your new Miss T&T.

The title of MUTT 2011 will go to Greer or Gabby.

I need to see Kristy but it seems that the MUTT oranizers love Renee so she will probably be top 3. For me, I would say place Kristy in the top 3 along with Gabby and Greer.

Shanequa will be a future Miss World Trinidad and Tobago and eventually MUTT. She is just simply fantastic!!! We should not waste her on MU2011 when she obviously needs more time to prepare and mature psychologically.

Well apparently, no one wants to say anything about the "gown pics" of the ladies on the offical pageant site (www.missuniversett.com).

I was horrified to say the least. In my opinion Renee is the only delegate in a proper gown and it is like 10 times better than the best of the others. Gabby's gown and Greer's gowns each look like a hot mess but the thing is Gabby still manages to pull it off -if they had put any other finalist in that gown it would have been a horror.

Jessica has a very fashion forward gown that I suspect looks good while she is moving but I don't expect to see her in the top 3 because I see no boobs.

Now, I have to be honest. If these are the actual gowns that the delegates are going to wear for the finals then I have to say that franchise holder will be in a pot load of sh#t (credibility-wise) post 14th May 2011.

After Renee, the best gowns are Jessica (2nd), and then to a much lesser extent Kristy and Cherrese.

Now that being said, in terms of who actually looks the best it is hands-down Gabby. No one comes close. I hate the gown but this young lady has someting special that you just can't explain. Gabby has now returned as my #1 pic for the crown.

The strange thing is, although Renee has the best gown by a mile, I have to say the gown looks better than she does. Great face but my gosh, her body is just not impressive at all in the gown. She looks like just another pretty face that we see at MU clapping in the background. She is a good print model but this just confirms in my mind that all she can do at MU is model clothes, pose for pictures and clap.

Kristy has grown on me alot but I need to see her in SS. I know she is definitely a wonderful model but I need to see more of her physique.

Based on these abusurd pics, I would have to say that Renee is the favorite among the TTU committee. Shanequa is dressed in a 'gown' that looks like she is competing for Miss Market Queen than MUTT.

This is the point in time when I have to admit that this pageant team has literally fallen off the wagon. I really did give this team the benefit of the doubt when Jenna did not make it to the finals last year but my gosh, enough is enough. It really looks like in their minds it it "Renee all the way."

I don't see why the heck Mr. Lee thinks for one moment spening over $100,000 of taxpayer's money to send a clapper is O.K. I, along with MUorg, really don't give a flying fish about who is a model or is internationally known- Just select the best-PERIOD!

The top 3 gown pics:
1. Gabby
2. Kristy
3. Geer
(Trust me when I say this has nothing to do with how good their gowns are.)

...they need to definitely change the market clothes they gave LaTisha and Sinequa to wear and someone needs to tell the stylist this is T&T in 2011- Not some landlocked African nation in the 1980s where progress (nor a television) has never been seen before. It just looks like a total disrespect to the Tobago ladies but then we see the hot mess they gave Greer and Gabby. Cherrese's gown is just O.K. and they could have done much better for Kristy.

If Gabby does wear this dress she will still be top 3 because as usual, when you look at her you see the beautiful young lady first and foremost. When I look at Renee in what is obviously the best gown of the competition, I see the beautiful gown, and then remember to look at the lady.

With the right styling and interview prep. she could be our 2nd Miss World. That being said I hope the franchise holder does not flood the net with pics of Lee Ann. She is already a favorite of many of MW but let's not get carried away. She will have a month in England and we don't want 'everyone to know her' before she arrives at the int'a l event. Miss World is a marathon - it's MU that is the 100m dash.

I am kind of surprised no one mentioned these as they were posted on the Facebook page on May 3. Unless I am just completely oblivious to to a previous posts.

On examination of the photos of the 8 I have to say Gabby did not impress me at all. She did not shine, glow, exude, emote nothing it was blah but as usual in the industry it is the picture that the photographer choses that we see but i was really not impressed. Greer Looked stunning. I know she is short in person but she did not look it at all. She looks sexy as all hell. Kristy St rose was another stunner as well. i think she in theory could be a great candidate as well a quote on quote dark house. MUO standards? This round to Greer!.

... if you are talking about the pics where the 8 finalists chose their own outfits - I did do a post some time back. I certainly would not call what Renee is wearing a cocktail dress. If is the one with Gabs in the black cocktail dress then I have to say I totally have a different viewpoint from yours. As I said in a previous post, Gabby looked great, Kristy looked hot and it was the worst pic of Greer I have seen and she still looks good. Greer's face looks puffy in the pic (in my opinion) and believe me when I say that facially, Greer is the best I have seen out of the group. She is simply georgeous and very fresh looking on video.

Now, I have to thank you for your honesty YOYO because I have to admit something...based on the last appearance of the 8 ladies on Synergy I have to say that Greer is seeming like the top pic for the title. Kristy does have a very interesting face, she has the fittest body in my opinion and great height. If I had to pick a top 3 right now it would be:
1. Greer
2. Gabby
3. Kristy

To be blantant, I saw a close up pic of Kristy in SS from the semis and her torso looked totally 'shapeless' so I am very cautious about saying anything about how beautiful her body is because I believe you, as well as I know, just because a young lady has a very fit, toned physique, this does not necessarily mean her body is 'Beautifu.'

I guess on Saturday I will see what is the real deal with Kristy (and the rest of the young ladies for that matter).
I know they have stremed the pageant online before, I am not sure if that will happen this year. I will be looking at the delayed broadcast on TV6 (the pageant starts at 7pm so I suspect it will be on at 8 pm after the news telecast).

P.S. You seem to know alot of models. Do you by chance know Anna Rosa's height? She looked gorgeous at the MWTT final but I am a bit turned off by the fact that she looked only a bit taller than Vaneeta. If she was 5'8" I would say she should screen again.

...as far as I am concerned, Shanequa is a diamond in the rough that needs to be polished over the next year. Hopefully, she will screen for MWTT next year. That being said, of the remaining 7, you could draw a line between the other 5 and the G squared ladies (Gabby and Geer). They are absolutely the only 2 who have been consistent. I need to see more of Kristy, LaTisha, and Didier.
I don't need to see anymore of Renee and Cherese. Neither could place at MU based on all the pics I have seen.

Anyways, you never know what could happen for a final. The MWTT 2011 was certainly an eyeopner for me - Vaneeta (although freakin' hot) looked really short and Brittany and Anna Rosa were the only 2 that I would like to see more of. Crystal, although georgeous, was just 100% a bundle of nerves.

We will all have to wait to see who shines on teh 14th.

American Spirit Pageants is now taking applications for state directorships. Now is your chance to direct your own pageant! Franchise agreements under the system are leased for between $2500 and $5000 a year, depending upon the size of the state. Once the franchise is secured the director takes on the rights and responsibilities for directing four separate divisions in his or her state pageant. The divisions include “Miss Teen”, “Miss”, “Ms.” and “Mrs.” The competition for all four divisions is held during the same pageant weekend. In some larger states the director may consider breaking the pageant into two separate weekends. The bottom line, however, is that having a number of divisions in one pageant makes this a real money making opportunity. American Spirit Pageants provides the outline and guidance to make each state pageant successful. It also provides marketing support, including a state pageant website and online marketing. Further, ASP provides a great national pageant experience.

American Spirit Pageants is the only national system that includes charitable fundraising as part of the judged competition (along with swimwear, evening gown and interview). Funds raised this year go to the HAVlife Foundation, which creates opportunities for “at risk” children to participate in arts and athletic programs. Last year, the pageant’s philanthropic twist attracted a number of celebrities as judges and performers. It was emceed by television and film personality, Mario Lopez. Nearly three thousand people attended the Finals. On the heels of such success, ASP is stepping things up another notch. The next national competition will be held at the Coronado Springs Resort in Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida. Delegates to the national competition will be selected from the various state pageants.

Let's be real people. As great as Gabby is Have you all not been paying attention to the Miss Universe Organization? Miss Puerto Rico, Miss Universe 2006 was the last SHORT miss universe. and even she was a fluke coming off of the giants that were Miss Universe 2002 (Originally Russia), 2003 DR, 2004 Australia, 05 Canada, and then after her we went right back to the glamazons 07 Japan, 08 and 09 Venezuela and 2010 Mexico. Look them up and see what I mean.

Gabby has great credits but as Nathan said in the interview it is a business. Miss universe is trying to grab headlines for a pageant that is becoming less relevant in the states and because of this the latin market that it is highly appealing to calls for girls who represent their standards of not normal beauty but exaggerated sex appeal. Not to knock it but youtube Spanish television shows and all the women are these tall beauties with extreme makeup and extreme body parts. MUO has to appeal to their audience and who is watching it the most? Latin America so no matter what country wins be they from Europe, Africa, Asia, the Americas or Oceana they need to at least appeal to the largest part of the target audience (That's a marketing term meaning the people or demographic group who are most likely to buy your product or watch your show).

The only reason why the short Miss USA was chosen last year was because of the "1st Muslim" tag. I bet you a million dollars they go back to tall glamazon this year.

Let's face it as much as I am proud of Gabby, Miss World looks for the total package Miss universe looks for someone to fit their mold. and if you think I am wrong, nationality aside please tell me that the last 4 Miss universes weren't the same person. Tall Statuesque with a playfull immaturity on finals night. I will go as far as to say Gabby is too prepared and too mature to do this pageant. The 90'sand early 2000s was the era of sophistication, class, intelligence, maturity and elegance. We won't see winners like Wendy TT, Lara India, Denise PR, Sushmita India, Lupita Mexico, Michelle Namibia, again for a while and that is the type of Delegate Gabby represents. We are still in the age of the Amelia Miss Universe 2003, One of the most hated delegates by her fellow contestants but originator of the carefree immature playful yet extremely strong stage presence but no elegance type of portrayal and who I might add gave one of the worst answers by a winner I had ever heard.

At the end of this, all I am saying is that Gabby is a great representative but the competition has completely changed and she is now too prepared for the old way of Miss Universe (Now the current way of Miss World) to compete.

I totally agree with Yo Yo's observation and analysis of Miss Universe.

[> Subject: OK. So, then which of the top 8 (since you say NOT Gabby) best suits the Miss Universe of today? Renee? Greer? Shinequa? One of the others? I beg to differ. Gabby has a shot at doing well at Miss Universe should she win Miss TnT. She has a presence that demands attention and causes people in a crowded room to stop and stare at her. To be honest, I am so torn between Gabby, Greer, and Renee that I can only throw my hands in the air and leave the fate of Miss TnT 2011 in the hands of the illustrious judges. Shenequa would make great Miss TnT Universe in about 3 - 4 years. For now, we can give it to the successful pageant veteran, to the extremely intelligent beauty of a medical doctor, or to the show-stopping fashion model. Either way, TnT is in the top 15 at Universe '11.

All the girls need some intense work. we have a lot of diamonds in the rough. You all keep going on about the medical doctor thing and who owns a foundation and this that and the other do you all realize that the average age of the winners of the past 10 years is about 19 20 21. They are not foundation runners but girls who would "One day I would like to create a foundation..." Miss Universe 2009 was 19, 2006 was 18 these girls haven't started life yet and i am not knocking them I am just pointing out that it isn't a "what you have done in your country" pageant anymore like Miss World.

Now you said Gabby has a presence that demands attention. and Yes that may be true but again LET'S BE REAL if you are selected to be a representative to Miss Universe about 80% of the girls there have a presence that demands attention. That is why you have to cover the other qualities trade marked by Miss universe. TALL STATUESQUE PLAYFUL SLIGHTLY IMMATURE FUN BOUNCY GIGGLY and a term I like to call NAIVE CONFIDENCE (A slightly cocky carefree confidence drawn from youth and inexperience rather from knowing oneself). They are looking for girls not women. Gabby is a grown woman in every sense of the word.

Having said that. I think Sheniqua shows potential but I agree she isn't ready due to lack of confidence. Greer is great and I have personally met and spoken to her before but I know the MU pageant system well and I know the Trinidad and Tobago Pageant training system well and I think the problem now is not the girls that we send but what we tell them to do once they get there. I think our pageant company is great but they neglected to see the transition MUO made over the past decade continuing to train our girls for the 90's

case in point. I fully believe that had Latoya be able to do her normal fun runway walk that she does on the catwalk that she would have been more appealing than she was during the presentation show. I have worked with her before on different fashion shows and i know her abilities and what I saw on Presentation show night was not that. Even Anya toned down her walk choosing a more 90's "pageant Patty" walk. in 2003 Amelia Vega changed the game with her walk By 2006 the trend took complete hold as the swimsuit competition thoroughly displayed bouncing boobs, hip shakes and unnecessary twirls etc. Thank God Kennisha was able to make the switch however, we are still telling our delegates to be demur when they need to be brazen.

I'll be honest I don't know the girls that well for I am a trini in the industry based abroad and have only worked with the model girls in the competition. It is great to see new faces I admit, but at the same time. Look at pictures of miss universe. look at the energy from the smiles the eyes the intensity. Look at her body and the proportions and don't just look at 1 miss universe look at the last 10. MUO isn't looking for a new model they are look for the same mold. DO WE HAVE ONE OF THOSE? By the pictures which I admit are all I have to go on. I will simply say I hope their lack of international appeal stems from poor photography and not the girls themselves, however I have worked with the photographer before and I know his ability. And the entire Photoshop thing that you all keep screaming about. IT IS 2011 PEOPLE photoshop is everywhere in everything. I would never forget last years pageant people couldn't believe Miss Ireland looked like that on Pageant night. she surely didn't look the same way as she did in her pictures.

Ladies and gentlemen we have cracked the formula for a possible Miss WORLD WIN but we need to research a whole lot more before we get that third MISS UNIVERSE CROWN AND i will go as far as to say even to be a semifinalist.

I'll say it now and it pains me to say it but I don't see a contender in the bunch. Gabby at this point is the best of a good group but a disillusioned training system. However i must STRESS I am extremely impressed with LEE ANN FORBES our rep to Miss World however, as a bigger fan of Miss Universe I would have much rather her go to Miss Universe than Miss World. She has the MUO base mold I was talking about. To me because we have cracked the code for MW besides the stumble of last years rep I think MUO is the harder of the 2 to win and thus we really needed to send Lee Ann to MUO Because LET'S BE REAL Who do you think has a better shot at the MUO crown Gabby or Lee Ann? Think about the past MU title holders and the Trump factor before you answer that one. You don't send your Models to Miss WORLD you send them to Miss UNIVERSE.

Excellent input YOYO, and I do understand where you are coming from. I agree with you on several points:
1) Lee Ann is definitely Miss Universe material by far. The girl has the look, the walk, the fashion-sense, and the diva attitude to take on mega-giants like Venezuela, USA, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Australia. If she does not win World, I hope she comes back to conquer the Universe. She has the right “mix” of a Miss Universe winner.
2) Sheniqua could do so much better in a few more years, and in this regard, I am kind of hoping that she does not win this time around yet. She along with Kristy Evans (a young 17 year-old who placed in the top 5 at Miss Bahamas this year) both have incredible potential as future Miss Universe contestants (Sheniqua more so than Kristy at this point). Sheniqua would be fierce in another 2 or 3 years with that same "bold" divaliscious "Flaviana Matata" look, with some toning up on her body (not too muscular).
Now, I don't agree with you that Miss Universe Org is looking for "girls." If that were the case, then Canada would not have won in 2005, Venezuela would not have won in 2008, and even Mexico would not have won last year. These three are women that acted accordingly (especially Natalia of Canada and Diana of Venezuela). In 2005, Miss Puerto Rico was “woman” from head to toe and was a big favorite to win (she got 1st runner up as you know). Dominican Republic in 2009 was all woman, and also got 1st runner up and her placement had everyone going WTF (but I grew to love Stefania during her reign who transformed from a girl to a woman). I would agree with you and say yes the winners tend to be "TALL STATUESQUE PLAYFUL SLIGHTLY IMMATURE FUN BOUNCY GIGGLY" (DR in 2003, Puerto Rico in 2006, Japan in 2007, Venezuela in 2009). Jennifer Hawkins of Australia exhibited both qualities of a “girl/woman”: girl next door qualities but with a womanly demeanor.
However, one of the reasons why I think TnT women have done so well at both Miss Universe and Miss World is because of their intelligence, elegance, and sophistication that comes so natural to TnT women. I mean, as soon as Wendy, Faye, Maggie, Danielle, Valene, Gabby, and Kenisha opened their mouths and spoke, one could not help but be in awe. They were mesmerizing! Combined with their intelligence and sophisticated look, Miss TnT was a huge favorite at both international pageants. These ladies (would be a sin to call them girls) stood out because they were natural and they embraced their womanly attributes and not acted like some “bouncy” 18 year old. Latoya had that same image when she was crowned last year, but I think she "lost herself" for whatever reason when she arrived in Las Vegas. It was as if she was trying to be someone she was not, and this (along with the haircut and not so good evening gown) did her in. Yendi Philips did not act like some giggly, bouncy 18 year-old. Yendi was herself: fierce, aggressive, and intelligent. She had a horrible, cheap looking evening gown, but she exuded confidence from start to finish. In essence, she was a woman and not some high-school girl, and she made damn sure she was noticed by the Miss Universe staff. So, I STRONGY DISAGREE with your assessment of what Miss Universe is looking for. Not to mention that Peter Elias, despite what people may think of him, knows the pageant industry inside out, and he still works with the TnT’s Miss Universe rep despite not having the franchise. Now, I don’t know if he was behind “Latoya’s transformation” (my guess is that he was not entirely) but otherwise, he needs to continue to coach the winners just like he did from 2003-2006.
So, all TnT needs to do is crown stunner who are true to themselves and who would stand out because of their womanly attributes. This is why I am so torn between Gabby and Greer (minus the height factor which I think may be their biggest disadvantage). Both are insanely gorgeous and well-spoken. Renee is taller and more fashionista and has more of the look that you mentioned, but for some reason, I am afraid that she may end up like Latoya (especially since the Bahamas is sending Anastagia Pierre who knows the Miss Universe Organization inside out and is a big favorite for the Caribbean). Gabby’s age may be a factor, but at the same time she is one of Elias’ girls who has the pageant experience and could work her charm to seal a top 15 spot (despite the height issue) just like Maggie and Kenisha being former successful Miss World semifinalist. I am 40/35/25 with Gabby/Greer/Renee. If Gabby was 24 years old, I would say give it to her; at the same time, if she wins, she could just be the one to show the world that you do not have to be an 18 year-old to win the crown. Miss South Africa 2009 was 25 or 26 years old and placed in the top 10; she was elegant and divalicious as hell. Greer is new to the pageant scene, and this could work for or against her. I give Gabby the upper hand with the pageant experience (and like Anastagia, Gabby has a huge international appeal that sets the bar even higher for the two of them). Renee is also new like Greer, and if she doesn’t win, she should use the experience and the extra time to prepare herself for next year.
We just have to wait and see what happens YOYO. If Gabby, Greer (or even Renee) wins, they will be in the top running with Miss Bahamas. I don’t even see Puerto Rico or Dominican Republic being a threat this year; in fact, Latin America is weak so far. Haiti and Cayman Islands still has to select a winner and could come strong. Jamaica isn’t saying much this year and I doubt will place. South Africa is out. Columbia isn’t saying much this year. I definitely see Angola, Kosovo, Malaysia, and Costa Rica making a big splash in Brazil. Aruba, Curacao, and Ukraine could be a hit in Brazil. Venezuela, Mexico, Philippines, and Spain could be a hit or miss. I would be shocked if USA does not crown one of their mega contenders in June: South Carolina, California, Illinois, Wisconsin, Florida, Mississippi, or Missouri; if one of these wins then USA is definitely. We still have to wait for the crowning of Australia, India, Panama, Peru, Brazil (host country won’t send a clapper this year), and Chile is back this year.

This is my “five cents”.

...I agree with about 90-95% of what you are saying. One point I disagree on is your view that we have many diamons in the rough... I only see one-Shanequa!She cannot be ready for this year's pageant (only about 13-14 weeks- you can be sure only 11 of these will be actual training). Maybe since you have dealt directly with the models in the competition -Kristy, Jessica and Renee- you know better but based on what I have seen, I just don't see any beauty pageant competitor among these 3.

The reality is, after Shanequa we just need to send the best competitor that is left. Believe me when I say that on television, Gabby and Geer are the only standouts with LaTisha in 3rd. I am convinced Renee turned up to compete but her body is just not there and I am afraid it will never be top 15 in SS at MU. If after seeing the SS competiton for the local final I have a different view I will say so. Additionally, the on the last visit to Synergy TV, Gabby displayed the same interview qualities that you say MU is looking for. The interviewer kinda cut her off and the other ladies also acted like she was being weird but I was left thinking if only these ladies knew that is the same spunk MU has been rewarding with high placements in the last few years.

At the same time though, I have to say last 2 year's final interview questions showed that MU judges are interested in a brain... a couple of them really required some reasoned thinking.

Again though, I must stress that at MU, beatuy comes first and if the young lady is not beautiful then they could just shut-up for the duration of the competiton because no one at MU cares to hear what she has to say. Trump is looking for someone who can generate cash and publicity-first and foremost. I actually expect the final question to be difficult this year because I think the MUorg has reached a new compromise with Mr. Trump in the last couple of years- after they have trimmed the fat to leave the 5 most georgeous ladies- they are going to pose some tough questions to at least give the impression that the competition is not just about airheads with great looks.

Gabby for me is the best out of the bunch and she is going to be a contender for a top 15 spot. It is not guaranteed- she is going to have to work for it but I think she is definitely in the running for top 15.

I have to thank you all because I am loving this friendly discussion. I am seeing some very educated and well articulated points. Having said that I need to clarify an earlier point I had made.

When I said "Miss Universe was looking for girls not women" I did not mean it in a disrespectful way. I feel as though the person crowned in recent years has been that girl that you want to chill with. You want to go and lime on the beach with her, hit up a few clubs, the fun bouncy type of girl. I feel the winners of the 90's were more career driven, they were more goal oriented and the pageant was more based on charity education, those themes. Which are more realistically embodied in a woman who is more mature, settled and grounded. fast forward to the current era and we dont have that stress on charity and maturity and it's basically a big party pageant and the winners usually reflect that. And I love it. It makes it different it makes it fun I am just saying that we have to stop stressing the old ideals and really embrace the pageant for what it is now and choose candidates that reflect that.

Leonard you bring up good points that Mexico was more Mature as wells as Canada but no where near the same category as Lara, Mpule, Denise etc of the early 2000's on pageant night. I think the crown matures you over the year but I think it comes down to this MUO of this era is looking for someone who lives in the now verse the MUO of the past who were looking for women to change the future.

As for Peter Elias. We owe all of our pageant successes to Petter. I have worked with him and he is a great person inside and out. Sorry to burst some bubbles but He did have a hand in choosing Latoya's dress so even he can get it wrong. I agree with the point made that he does know pageants well but the MUO of the last 5 years so we need a team that can make the jump.

Now some one also brought up the Miss Bahamas delegate. Ladies and gentlemen with all due respect. A picture does not she preparation.. Meaning A lot of girls especially from the caribbean look great in photos and then are way too demur during the pageant. so I tend to not comment on delegates, especially caribbean delegates till the competition starts just because I know their history of a lack of preparedness when they arrive.

...he has had some serious gown flops in my opinion but, as a franchise holder, he certainly has the best eye for beauty and no other pageant franchise holder has come close. I actually though LaToya's gown was a big yawn. Bobby's white gown was certainly 10 times better but again-it needed some work to draw in the waist becasue LaToya looked nearly boob-less in it.

Anyways, YOYO did you by chance have a look at Shinequa's 'behind the scene' SS pics that were recently posted on the MTTU Facebook page?-My gosh, if they whip her body into shape and prep her well for interveiw it will be nearly impossible to stop her from cracking the top 5 at MW next year and top 5 of MU in a couple of years. Her midsection reminds me of Kenisha Thom's body. If she could get some ab definition she will be a top 5 favorite at MWBB. I just hope someone in the pageant arena really takes an active role in developing this young lady's potential over the next couple of years.

I did, the one thing we know how to do, almost better than anyone else, is how to make a delegate fit. I think after the Transformation that was Kennisha Thom, who I really know well from way before her modeling and pageant days, every delegate after that realized and has to realize that they have to put in some work because the results are amazing. So yes i do think that with the right training Sheniqs will be in great shape however, its the things that you can't teach or train that i am concerned about for her. That confidence and bounce in the step so yes I look forward to seeing her transformation through the years if she keeps with it.

So we are five days away from the new Miss T&T Universe. I cant wait to see Gabby being crown. She has it all to make a high placement at Miss Universe. I hope the judges see this and award her the crown on saturday. She seems determine to do well at Miss Universe.

Only one week left to MUTT and I have to say I am disappointed the finals of the two pageants were not merged. For such a small country, I think we should just choose 8 ladies to compete for the 2 titles. Nonetheless, Lee Ann Forbes was easily the best delegate to screen this year-Period!

I finally saw the 8 ladies for MUTT on Synergy and now I have to say it -Shanequa will most likely be 4th at this year's pageant because she seems very green at this moment. She is indeed the the only diamond in the rough at this pageant. With good gym work and interview prep. I can see her as a finalist at MW next year, but for now I just don't see the sense in wasting her at MU this year (she would have less than 3 months to prepare). This means that Renee will be top 3.

The top 2 for now are Greer and Gabby and it is a real fight to see who will win on the 14th. The other ladies seem like clappers all the way, but I have to say that LaTisha actually looked better than Renee. I am waiting to see how she looks in SS onstage for the final.

That being said, I am under no delusions for MU2011. Let's be REAL people; from these 8 - I don't see anyone who could win MU 2011. The most we could do is place and only Gabby and Greer could be prepped in time for the int'al event. Shaniqua needs to enter MW next year and rock the 2012 international event before doing MU again.

I am concerned about the height issue but at the very least I know Gabby will stand out. As I have always said, Gabby is not the typical MU body-type, but she is a way better competitor than LaToya last year. Both Greer and Gabby will be competitors but I suspect Gabby will perform better at the international event. She willhave to work really had to make the top 10 in prelims.

Considering Brazil is the host, I have to say again that in my opinion everything is in place for Gabby to do the best she could for a MU competition - I think the Brazillian public will love her and the latin public will be interested in her because of her previous success at MU.

So for me I say send Gabby.

I agree with you on most things but 1 thing I can't get behind but I think for us to be positive is the best thing and you are leading the charge for a rep being in the semis so i will leave my negative nancy comments to myself. lol thanks for keeping the forum going though.

...when you made your first post I thought you were just trying to stirr up some trouble but after you explained your position in a later post I was actually quite happy to see some of your comments. I totally understand what you are saying.

One thing I have to clear up about the photoshop issue though - I am glad the pageant organizations are doing profession shots. The actual point I was trying to make is that I preferred untouched pics to make judgement calls on the delegates since they tend to be a more accurate representation of the ladies. That is all I was trying to say. With photoshop, everyone tends to look beautiful. Anyways, that is why I say when I see the ladies on video/television, then I can make a better judgement call on who are the real competitors.

I look forward to seeing more posts from you. I certainly enjoy hearing your perspective.

Leonard and Yo-Yo you guys bring up excellent points. Yo-Yo I agree that Miss Universe is a business first and Trump is a businessman but to say that they crown immature 18 years old and that is the mold I don't think is quite correct. I think that it is more of a Latina thing since the ratings for Miss USA and Miss Universe are both down here in the States and Miss Teen USA isn't even televised anymore, hence Telemundo and the big money they garner behind them in ads and all the specials leading up to Miss Universe. You have to keep your'money' and target audience appeased.

This is why I believe that Gabby would do so well in Sao Paulo. If she wins next Saturday (fingers crossed) take off that Trinidad and Tobago sash and tell me what part of the world she is from??? That is what I like about her. She to me looks like she could be representing any of those South, Central American or Spanish speaking Caribbean countries that are soooo essential to Trump's business that is Miss Universe. I really do think that if she goes to Brazil that Gabby will be a huge press fav but we also need her to be a fav of the Miss Univerese org as well. I looked at how she charmed Julia Morley at Miss World with the honey and butter voice she has and I believe that she can do the same in Brazil. She reminds me a lot of Kenisha Thom in that aspect, USING THEIR BEAUTY AS WELL AS CHARM to their advantage.

As for height, most if not all of the contestants lie about their heights. Xiomora I believe is 5'7 and Miss USA 2009 said she was 5'9 and turned out she was only 5'5 so I believe if you can work that stage you don't hv to be 5'10 just project that you are and it will work for you.

Congrats to Lee Ann Forbes!! I believe that she will do VERY WELL at Miss World. Lee Ann has said that she used this pageant for experience for Miss TnT Universe so we will see and I hope she does go for Miss TnT Universe in the future as she is only 21 years old. I see that Peter Elias is a special liason and I hope that he does encourage her to try out. I believe to that if Gabby wins he will be helping her as well as he and Mr. Lee are good friends.

Happy Mothers' Day to everybody especially my mother!!!

...after seeing how short Vaneeta looks I will say she should go to a regionaly pageant. She has a fantastic body and great appeal but I could not see her beating 100 ladies to place in the final 15. If she were 4 inches taller, I would say we have a world class competitor. For now, the only lady I want to see more of is Brittany. Crystal looked really beautiful but I don't know how tall she is.

The pre-show was good. We got to see and hear from a couple of people involved with the pageant this year. I was relieved to hear that Adrian say the pageant is not just about crowing the best of the night but who they think has the right POTENTIAL to place at the international event when given the right amount of preparation.

The franchise holder, Mr. Ragunanan, sounded like a bundle of nerves. I don’t like this at all considering that when our rep. is at the international event, he is the one she should be able to call on to receive some levelheaded support and direction.

Now for the actual show that started around 8:30 pm. I think the stage set-up was the best I have seen in years. It seemed to offer more intimate contact with the audience than in previous years. The minimalist design was excellent and surprisingly very sophisticated. [GREAT JOB CALVIN FRENCH].

Now I have to say that I tried to leave all my preconceived notions of the delegates behind and view the pageant with the least amount of bias as I could in order to judge which ladies were indeed top beauty pageant material.

I liked the opening presentation of delegates- very tastefully done. I was very pleasantly surprised to see that facially, Nariba is indeed stunning, and Anna Rosa does command some attention. My gosh, facially Brittany is a stunner (she has a very soft, delicate face with great appeal that Mrs. Morley would love- her photos do not do her justice). Lee Ann looked good but I did not like the hair at all. The biggest shock was that Vaneeta was extremely short.

Final Top Model fashion walk –HANDS DOWN NARIBA NAILED THIS. NO ONE CAME CLOSE! I COULD SEE HER DOING VERY WELL ON THE INTERNATIONAL SCENE.

For SS, my top 3 in order were:
(1) Lee Ann Forbes – best body hands down but the hairstyle is certainly not the best; she is indeed a top 10 competitor for the BB title. She certainly would not look out of place in the top 3 or even as the winner of MWBB 2011.
(2) Brittany Wiltshire - I know, I was shocked also. She needs to lose about 10 lbs and do some real work slimming down her lower body but I could see the potential.

(3) Anna Rosa – looked good but I am not too sure if she could really compete against 100 ladies and stand out in SS.

I really did not care for the rest. Nariba, from her boobs upwards, looked great in SS but below her boobs she is 100% model.


For the evening gown my top 4 picks:
(1) Lee Ann Forbes (by a mile)
(2) Brittany Wiltshire (face looks really good, but her lower body looks fat, so I understand why she did not make the top 4; additionally she needs to learn how to walk in a gown onstage; I also hated the dress)
(3) Nariba – like any top model she knows how to work it but her body looks too thin to really make an impact at MW.
(4) Anna Rosa

My top 4 were the aforementioned ladies in the same order of their gown placements. The ONLY one I was sure was MW material was Lee Ann at this point and I wanted Brittany (if she is at least 5’7”) to lose some serious lbs and slim down her lower body and come back for next year’s MWTT.

As we all know, Lee Ann and Anna Rosa made it to the final 4 along with Vaneeta and Nisa. Personally, Vaneeta’s short stature was extremely distracting so I ruled her out immediately (she’ about 5’5”). I don’t see the appeal with Nisa but she does have a very fit body and one of the more difficult gowns to wear.
The only person who gave the best response to her final question was Nisa while Anna Rosa was the worst. Vaneeta’s reply was good but in my opinion she got the easiest answer. Lee Ann’s answer was a mess but O.K. Lee Ann and Anna Rosa seemed like a bundle of nerves the minute they opened their mouths to answer their final question.

Realistically though, Lee Ann was the only one out of this top 4 who could place at MW. Thank goodness she won. The judges made the right choice.

Now a couple of critical comments to the MWTT pageant team: Why the heck is a delegate in SS with her hair covering part of her shoulder and worst of all a boob? That’s like the worst thing to do other than falling during the SS competition- talk about begging for a low SS score. Poor Crystal! Additionally, I did not like Lee Ann’s hairstyle at the finals. The need to get a better look for her and I suggest bigger hair. The hair experts would probably make other suggestions she could try. Imagewise, groom her for a win like Russia 2008. Moreover, Lee Ann needs both serious interview prep. and greater stage confidence when answering questions. Adrian, the whole country is depending on you to help Lee Ann nail her MW interviews.

Congrats to all the ladies for a fantastic show and to the two fantastic winners of the night – Lee Ann and Nariba. They both will do excellent in their respective paths.
P.S. Despite the many hiccups, the male host was excellent since I cannot remember any host/hostess in recent years bringing so much energy and interest to the proceedings. In my opinion, it was much better than the past few year’s productions including MUTT2010. Finally, we have an inclination that Mr. Ragunanan is getting serious about how taxpayer’s dollars are being spent.

My picks:
Miss World Trinida and Tobago 2011: Ms. LeeAnn Forbes
1st Runner-up: Ms. Vaneeta Maharaj
2nd-runner-up: Anna Rosa/Brittany/Couva

I can't see how we could end up with any other winner but LeeAnn. She is world class material and beautywise she is one of those who could bring home the international crown.
I am just hoping Mr. Ragunanan gets the best interview preparation for our rep. because if she does not do well in the interview segment of MW she wil not place. Period!!!

Vaneeta needs to reenter again. I could see her as MWTT in the near future.

As for the rest I am not sure. Ms. Couva is beautiful but looks really short. Anna Rosa is inconsistent in photos-sometimes she looks really georgeous and then in the next breath I am wondering where did her spark go?

As for Ms. Belmont, Nisa and Nariba- I am sure they are NOT what MW is looking for.

Brittany remains a puzzle to me because to date I have not seen a clear SS pic of her. Sometimes she looks young and then at other times she looks a bit old. I guess I have to wait and hopefully see how she looks on television. [ These people must be crazy if they don't do a live broadcast].

In conclusion, I must say that all 8 ladies are lovely but there can only be one winner. I hope they all have a great time at the final.

I don't know what horses#it is this but Mr. Ragunanan needs to get his act together. This is not 1911, this is 2011. Can't the franchise holder give us one pageant year without any BS? On the official MTT WORLD 2011 FB page they administrator indicated that the show will not be on television. Is he just lying to get tickets sold or is this ridiculous statement true? Either way it reeks of just utter unprofessionalism. This just makes me concerned for our 2011 rep. When nonsense like this happens you have to wonder if our rep. is really being properly prepped for the international event when no one is looking. The gym people will always do their jobs but my gosh, this is MISS WORLD not some pageant in someone's backyard. If our rep. is not prepped well for the interview she will not crack the top 15 at all-regadless of how beautiful she is.

Can Mr. Ragunanan issue a statment on why he does not see it fit to have a live telecast?

GABBY LOOKS LIKE THE TOTAL PACKAGE AND SHANIQUA IS JUST FANTASTIC. Jessica also looks great and I think this is the worst photo of Geer I have seen and she still looks good. Geer's untouched photos have had more impact than this photoshopped pic.

No surprise-Kristy St. Rose looks hot- she can deliver in gown for the finals but she is certainly not what MU is looking for in terms of SS.

I know LaTisha and Cherrese are not going to make top 3 so I am not even bothering. Renee again looks good but boring. I have oficially given up on wanting to see her look competitive. Her appeal is a print model for a teen magazine in my opinion. What can she do in Brazil other than pose for pictures and clap is beyond my comprehension.

Let't hope MR. LEE does not waste another $200,000 or so of taxpayers money to send a clapper. Geer or Gabby should be sent. Shaniqua is top 5 material but needs much more prepration (at least 8 months or so) for an international pageant. SHE NEED TO GO TO MWTT2012 and be our 2012 rep at the international event. Truth be told, after these 3 I would pick Jessica plus a boob job as my 4th pick. After this, if none of these ladies could rep. us, then I would say don't even bother turning up to the 2011 international event.

Sheniqua was the only one not present because she has CXC exams. It's official, Greer is a beauty and she speaks like a top 5 MU finalist. I did not like Gabby's makeup but man can she walk. They (the super G squared ladies) may be among the shortest but they really stood out in a good way from all the other ladies who were present. These 2 will definitely be top 3 in my opinion. Greer seems very confident but they need to work on her stage walk. Georgeous lady though and I love her voice. Her confidence when speaking reminds me of Wendy's interview at MU.

THESE ARE THE 2 TO BEAT.

Shaniqua will be a future MWTT and MUTT. I was not impressed at all with the other ladies but LaTisha was a pleasant surprise. Didier looked good but needs a boob job. After seeing Renee on TV, I think the judges will have to be blind to crown her MUTT. Apart from Gabby and Geer no one really had a strong impact, and considering the other ladies are taller,that alone should tell you how strong the "shorties" are at this year's competition.

Now, to the less serious part about the SYNERGY appearance, when Sharon Imbert (hope I got the name right) was asked what the MU organization was looking for the first thing that came out of her mouth was "intelligence" [WHAT A JOKE!] That age ended with the last century. Thankfully, she quickly added they wanted a beautiful lady and Mr. Nathan added it was a business. Yes let's keep it real- FIRST AND MOST IMPORTANTLY MUorg IS LOOKING FOR A VERY BEAUTIFUL LADY WHO CAN GRAB MAGAZINE COVERS. ONCE THAT PREQUISITE IS MET THEN THEY CARE TO HEAR A LITTLE ABOUT WHAT SHE HAS TO SAY - END OF STORY!

At least with Gabby and Greer we already know they would be genuinely interesed in helping the less fortunate.

The crown will either go to Gabby or Greer. If Gabby falters in any way Greer will be MUTT2011. I just wish these ladies were younger. Based on age, this is Gabby's last chance to be MUTT and Greer can only reenter next year - Valene is eligible for next year and maybe the 2013 edition. If Val suddenly decides to enter MUTT next year she will "planas#" the other delegates. Anyways, considering we have not really heard anything about Valene in what seems like years maybe she does not ever plan to enter MUTT.
All we know is what is happening currently - so I can't wait to see which of these 2 will be crowned on the 14th!

Only 4 days left to the final. The top 3 in terms of beauty are
1. Lee Ann Forbes
2. Vaneeta Maharaj
3. Crystal Prabhudial

However, Crystal seems a bit short so this opens up the competition for the top 3. Anna Rosa or Brittney could fill this void.

Anyways, I have noticed over the years that regardless of what I say prior to the final, it is my assessment of the ladies at the actual local final that that is generally quite accurate. So I guess I will have to wait for Friday.

LeeAnn Forbes has winner written all over her. I just hope Mr. Ragunanan gets help from Adrian and Bobby Ackberali for the interview prep. Additionally, Bobby Ackberali should design her gown. He is one of the best pageant gown designers in the world. Even Peter Elias recognises this fact.

Go LeeAnn!!!

Ok after reading some mess on Missossology I just could not keep quiet. First off let's start by squashing this rumor that Renee Bhagwadeen was PERSONALLY flown in for the screening. It is NOT TRUE, I was on the Miss TnT Universe FB page the day Renee asked if even though you were living in the US you could enter and she was told yes as long as you were a Trinidad national (born or nautralized) and she was told that there was one more screening and that she should hurry and buy her ticket. So she was NOT flown in on a private jet and all that crap!!!

The Good

First off I am vey happy to see the huge amount of potential of beauty this year. And I say potential bcuz with some more training and experience some of these girls like Jessica could be a future Miss TnT.


Gabrielle's experience has been questioned huh??? Shall we check the records to see how we do at Miss Universe with an experienced delegate -

2005 - Maggie Walcott top 15

2006 - Kenisha Thom top 10

2011 - top 5?????

So far MANY of the delegates heading to Sao Paulo have major pageant experience and we need to send someone that WILL not only counter that but be in to top 15 - 5 as well

Malaysia - Debroah Henry top 15 Miss World 2007

Bahamas - Anastagia Pierre - Miss Florida Teen USA 2004, Miss Florida USA 2009, Miss Bahamad Intercontinental 2010, Miss Earth USA Top 5. So you get my drifty with her and she can realistically hand Bahamas their first semi finalist since she also has that relationship with the Miss Universe Org.

Lets not forget Yendi and Ada ( Miss Dominican Republic 2009) who both were in the top 15 at Miss World 2007 and both went on to be Miss Universe 1st runner ups in respective yrs.


The Bad

The rabid fans on FB that are like crabs in a barrel. These ppl sound soooo ungrateful talking about that Gabby didn't even win Miss World so why she going up for Miss Universe excuse me??? Do u know how hard it is to place at Miss World or any pageant when there are 110 countries vying for 1 crown. Gabby was the quality of Life winner something the previous semifinalist hv not been able to do. And these rabid Renee fans please do not be calling ppl porn stars and not Trini looking enough bcuz if Gabby win Miss Universe allyuh hv to hush allyuh mouth and then everybody going to supporting her saying that they always knew she would win.


The Ugly

I like Greer but all this TRIBE ppl involved with this and she plays with them and has a good relationship with them as well is not good, but I do think that she will get top 3 on her own merit though.

Sheniqua is gorgeous I just wish that she had waited a year after her exams to compete. I do not like the fact that she has exams and competing at the same time. I wish she had a little more education.

Trini77 and BeautySeeker what say you guys???

...Gabby is 100% Trini and I don't give a flying fish what those 'HERE TODAY GONE TOMORROW' FB 'fans' have to say. I guess they see the only way for Renee to win is to pong the biggest competition. Anybody could be a model-that does not mean they are internationally competitive. I am more confident about Gabby's chances at placing at MU than LaToya who they all loved last year. Truth be told, LaToya is probably a more stunning model than Jenna, but Jenna Marie Andre could whip LaToya anyday on a beauty pageant stage in SS and gown. PERIOD! Too bad Jenna was wasted last year. If Gabby does not win, I am hoping Greer wins-even though she is short and people are playing on her height to detract from her beauty-when you see her onstage youd do see a very beautiful lady with a really competitive body.

HANDS DOWN, GABBY, GEER AND SHANIQUA ALL WHIP RENEE IN SS HANDS DOWN.

THE FINAL 8
By VERDEL BISHOP Tuesday, May 3 2011

Eight delegates have been selected for the local leg of Miss Universe. The delegates were selected out of a slate of 17 hopefuls at O2 Park, Chaguaramas, Sunday. Ian Lee, National Pageant Director and Franchise Holder noted that the best of the best were selected after a national search, including screenings in San Fernando, Port-of-Spain and Tobago. Lee said: “The task of selecting 17 was difficult enough, selecting eight for the final was even more so from this list of beautiful and talented women.”

In preparation for the finals, the girls will participate in rigorous training and rehearsals, which will include psychological training with psychologists Frank and Jenny Dolly. Lee said psychological training is an important facet of the pageant.

“We are recognised as one of the beauty capitals in the world; the international press looks at us so we are looking at holistic training. Everything can’t be rehearsed; the girls have to learn to value themselves and to keep their emotions in tact,” Lee said.

Lee said on the night of the finals the panel of adjudicators will be looking for an allrounder, a woman with a combination of brains and beauty.

Gabrielle Walcott, who won Miss TT World 2008 and was selected as the second runner-up in Miss World 2008, is also among the final eight selected for Miss TT Universe. Eighteen-year-old Shinequa Francis from Roxborough, Tobago, is the youngest delegate to be selected this year. Francis, a form five student at Speyside High School said she is juggling her studies and her responsibilities as a delegate. She said it’s a daily struggle, but one she is going to endure to the end.

“I always wanted to give the competition a try. I’m really fighting hard at putting everything in place because right now I have exams plus I have to train for the pageant. I’ve learned from the psychology training how to cope with everything that is going on around me. It’s great to be selected in the final eight; and I’m confident that on the final night I have what it takes to be selected as Miss Universe TT,” Francis said. Greer Iton, who was also selected in the final eight said she is very energised about being in the finals. She said making it to the finals is what gives her more fuel to win the pageant. Iton, 25, a medical doctor said a lot of careful thought and planning went into entering the competition.

“I am more determined than ever. I’m very excited and energised and comfortable within myself so I am very focused on what I have to do,” Iton said.

The finalists include Miss Arima, Jessica Didier; Miss Carnbee, La Tisha Hospedales; Miss Diego Martin, Kristy St Rose; Miss Petit Valley, Gabrielle Walcott; Miss Pleasantville, Cherrese K Abreau; Miss Roxborough, Shinequa M Francis; Miss Siparia, Renee Bhagwandeen; The judging panel included Sharon Imbert, Former Permanent Secretary, Office of the Prime Minister; Jacqui Koon How, Artistic Director, House of Jacqui; Heather Jones, Designer, Heather Jones Designs; Gerard Alfonso, Owner of Long Circular Health and Fitness; Collin Abraham, President, Pollen Nation Events Ltd; Dominic Kalipersad, Group Head of News, CCN TV6; Kees Dieffenthaller, Entertainer and lead singer, Kes the Band and Nicole Dyer, Former Miss TT 1999.

The final show for Miss Trinidad and Tobago Universe takes place on May 14, 2011 at the O2 Park, Chaguaramas venue (formerly known as MOBS2).

O.K. So it's official, Shinequa, Gabby and Iton are the front runners. I was wondering why Iton did not enter when she was younger -now I know why-she was in Medical School- I guess we should say Dr. Iton.

Gabby is the only one I am sure could compete with the best with 2.5 months prep- because that is all the time left because the winner will need at leat 10 to 14 days to get her affairs in order -basically drop everything else she is doing in her life to train full time. PERIOD!

Shaniqua will be wasted if sent to this year's pageant because she cannot be mentally prepped for a top 5 finish. Some who went to the semis say that her lack of confidence showed. Additionally, we don't want a rep. who is distracted by her CXC exams at present. Shaniqua is a diamond that needs polishing and I actually think she is ripe for a top 5 finish at MW next year. She shoud definitely enter next year's MWTT.

Geer Iton, if sent to MU this year, will be one of the most beautiful-HANDS DOWN!!! Even though she is just like a half inch or so shorter than Gabby I am not too sure she could stand out from a crowd. Gabby on the other hand, does seem to always stick out in a good way.

Now BeautySeeker and C, did you guys have a look at the unphotoshopped pics of the ladies at the semis (on the Triniwaves facebook page)? MY THE WONDERS OF PHOTOSHOPPED. Juliana James is fat by pageant standards- she needs to lose at least 10 lbs and tone up if she plans on screening again for another MTT. I am also not sure if she has narrow shoulders but from what I see she would need two small implants also.

Additionally, I would have chosen Jeanette instead of Cherrese for the final 8.

That being said, the bottom 4 in my opinion are Cherrese (not MU material), Crysty St. Rose (the fittest body but certainly not the most beautiful body), La Tisha (inconsistent in photos and I don't see her making any impact internationally) and in 5th place overall the beautiful Jessica Dider (no boobs).

This is where it gets interesting -unquestionably in 4th place in Renee (who I still think is a pretty girl but not really that competitive looking).

The top 3 are in 3rd place Geer Iton, 2nd Shaniqua and 1st Gabby. Any one of these 3 will be able to make a grab for a top 10 prelim spot but I am most confident about Gabby. Shaniqua has the assets to make top 5 at the MU pageant but I don't see her being ready in less than 3 months, especially with the distractions of CXC exams.

Geer is short and Shanequa's novelty to this pageant shows onstage so Renee could realistically crack the top 3. I just hope the judging panel is not as crappy as last year's. NO WAY CAN RENEE DO BETTER THAN GABBY AT MISS UNIVERSE.

According to FB posters who viewed the livestream of the semifinal competition, these are the 8 finalists for MUTT2011 (in random order):

Cherrese

Gabby

Greer

Jessica

Kristy St Rose

LaTisha

Renee

Shaniqua

My favorie is Shaniqua but I am picking Gabby for the crown. Shaniqua needs to go to MWTT2012, but if Gabby does not win and Shaniqua grabs the title I will be elated.

As I said before, the fittest body belongs to Kristy St. Rose. I can't wait to see all 8 wonderful ladies on television. I am also elated to see that Jessica Didier made it. She has such an exquisite face.

The finals, as we all probably know by now is on May 14.

Gabby, Shanequa and Geer for the top 3!

...we are back to a strong slate of candidates. The 2 ladies I am sure can deliver for an international competition are Shinequa and Gabby. Geer's photos seem to indicate she is also a competitor but I am only 95% sure of this until I see her clearly onstage at the finals. Additionally, Jessica has one of the best faces to hit the pageant circuit in the Caribbean and I am extremely interested to see how her body looks. It is quite possible that with a couple of implants she could be a world class competitor-right now she is just a world class beauty.

P.S. Juliana James is the only non-finalist that I want to see return to a MTT competition.

Look at her bone structure and you will see what I am talking about.Thus far I keep looking to see an international competitor but I keep getting disappointed. Renee cannot deliver a 9.0 in SS at all at MU. She will not place unless Trump himself puts her in the final.-PERIOD!!! If on the finals she looks competitive I will say but for now she is a big NO!

Shinequa and Gabby are 100% what MU is looking for and I will go as far to say that Shinequa is the best one, because she has the assets to make top 5 in both SS and gown provided she whips her body into shape. However, Gabby is the total package currently. She will have the global appeal and so I say send her. I actually think everything is in place for Gabby to do the best she could ever do at a MU pageant - she has the look that the Brazillians are going to love, the latin public will have alot of respect for her as a former MW finalist and I think she speaks with such great eloquence. Step away from all of this, and you see her continued, unwavering, active support to the Just Because foundation- She is 1000% what a MUTT should be!!!

Someone may want to pong me for this, but I think Shinequa needs to go to MW next year. She is at the right point in her life to fit the bill for a top 3 spot at the international event. If she was at MWTT this year, LeeAnn Forbes would have some really tough competition. Post-Wendy she is best dark-skinned delegate I have seen with only the Nigerian girl who won MW coming to mind. (Yes Kenisha is my absolute fav MTT still but I think from a physical standpoint Shinequa could do what Kenisha could not do - place in the final 5 of MW and MU).

I can't wait to see Jessica's in SS-if she has the physical framework then a boob job will be all she needs to be an international competitor. I guess we will have to wait for the 14th MAY 2011!

It’s officially a real competition. Gabby is going to have to work it if she plans to win that crown.


VIDEO TRUMPS PHOTOSHOPPED PICS EVERY TIME:

All the ladies have wonderful bodies but the top 4 that stand out are:
1. Shinequa
2. Greer Iton & Gabrielle Walcott (tie)
4. Juliana James

Other top BODIES:
Bernice, Candace Guppy, Cherrese, the 17th lady I did not see in my previous post (don’t recall the name), Jeanette,

OBVIOUS MISS UNIVERSE TO 15 MATERIAL: 1. Shinequa 2. Geer Iton and 3. Gabby
Potential: Juliana James (needs to tone up but definite international appeal)

Shinequa is not Miss Universe Trinidad and Tobago 2011 but SHE IS ABSOLUTLEY 1000% TOP 10 MATERIAL AT BOTH MU AND MW, in the vein of Kenisha Thom and Wend Fitzwilliam. In fact I am going to say that she can go further than Kenisha at both pageants. I hope she learns as much as she can from this year’s competition and enters Miss World TT next year. She could be top 5 in MW Beach Beauty and at least make the finalist slate of the international event. I am so excited for her. She needs to get some ab definition though. I also notice that she seems a bit shy/less confident about her body than all the others. Personally, I think she is easily top 3 in SS at this point and if she was in top form she would be unbeatable in SS. Georgeous face, unique features, great height, wonderful skin tone – all she is missing is some toning in her midsection and she is ready to compete with the best in SS that the world has to offer. I hope Mr. Lee and Mr. Ragunanan both realize the enormous potential of this young lady. I absolutely love her look.
It’s official, this year’s slate is much better than last year’s. At the 2010 edition, I was only sure of Miss Arima being top 15 material. This year I see at least 3 really strong possibilities.
O.K. I have to be honest, Gabby is my Pick for the MUTT2011 title based on this video with Sinequa being my absolute favorite out of the bunch. I don’t think Shinequa could be mentally ready for MU as she seems to not exude confidence –send her to MW next year and I guarantee you, if she is prepped well for the interview we will be top 3, and yes she has winner quality written all over her.


As for Jessica Didier, she needs to get a boob job and return next year. Georgeous face though!!!

Renee has an good body but no way close to the top 4. Her height, confidence and modeling experience will help to make her a possible contender for a top 3 spot. She just did not look that competitive to me. Unfortunately, local judges are sometimes swayed by audience support so this may boost her scores for the final, if she makes it. To be honest I think she is already a finalist because of her big fan following.

THANK YOU SO MUCH BEAUTY SEEKER FOR ENCOURAGING ME TO LOOK AT THE VIDEO!!!

...the more I am convinced one of these top 4 should be MUTT2011. Strangely enough, Renee has a bigger fan following than the other 16 semifinalists put together. However, I am convinced that if some crazy judging panel chooses her as our 2011 rep., she will be clapping at the finals of Miss Universe.

...so I expect to see her as one of the final 8. The pageant team really needs to sit down after this pageant and talk about what they are looking for when choosing the 8 finalists for the 2012 edition. I would like the suggest they seriously consider just choosing the ladies with REAL MU APPEAL and not just the fittest bodies. Jessica Dieder is absolutely MU material but she has literally 2 tiny mosquito bites. If she gets a boob job she could be a top contender for the MUTT title. If she is eliminated tonight then it is because for the lack of boobs-NOT BEAUTY. She absolutely has the look and aura of a MU finalist. I don't know how tall she is though.

P.S. The video is available on the Miss Trinidad and Tobago Universe FB page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Miss-Trinidad-and-Tobago-Universe/205290682824798

The obvious choices:
Gabby, Greer, Shanequa, Juliana
5. Jessica Dieder (If she gets a good boob job she is a definite contender for MU)
6. Kristy St. Rose (fittest body but not the most beautiful body)
7. Candace Guppy
8. Jeanette

I suspect Jessica will not be in the final 8 because of her small boobs but she is absolutely one of the best. I would not be surprised if they announce 9 or 10 finalists tonight though.

However, based on the lame judging style that they exhibited last year, Renee is definitely top 8. I was very disappointed with her in the video. She just does not have an internationally competitive body-PERIOD! She looks like a watered-down version of LaToya. I am already bored by her look.

The Miss Universe Trinidad and Tobago website is finally up at www.missuniversett.com. The official face shots of the 17 semifinalists for the 2011 edition of the pageant have been posted along with SS shots. OH THE WONDER THAT IS PHOTOSHOP!!! While I like the fact that the pageant company is doing a good job at marketing each of the 17 ladies – I miss the days of Peter Elias and Associates when we got individual shots of the ladies (minus any photoshop) at the screenings. I recall Valene, Jenna, and Gabby becoming a favorite based on her untouched SS photo.

Anyways, all the ladies look good and some look totally different from their screening photos. .Now I have only been able to look at 8 (I have a poor internet connection)
Regardless, here are my thoughts on the 8 photoshopped SS pics:

Cherrese De Abreau, 26: Great body but I just don’t see any international appeal at all or any potential to place in the international final. She also looks short in her official SS pic. However, I think she will be one of the local 8 finalists. I don’t need to see more.

Shinequa M. Francis, 18: Va-va-voom face. Totally stunning facially and I love the haircut!!! Her body is not in top shape but I see some real potential in this young lady. Additionally, she looks tall and has a natural pose in her SS pic. She needs to work on her mid section and get some ab definition. It would improve her SS impact greatly. I definitely want to see more. She is my pic for a top 8 spot…could place in the final 3.

La Tisha Hospedalis: I don’t like the sideways pose as it obscures a large part of her physique. The face does not look stunning in the pic at all. However, I think she was the lady in the pink SS who screened in Tobago so I am going to say she is in contention for a the local final 8. I need to see more though.


Kareesia Henry, 20: I don’t see her as a top 8 local finalist.


Now at this point, I do have to say that based on these pics, the Tobago finalist slate was GOOD.
Now for the others:


Britteny Alverez, 21: I don’t see her doing anything on the international scene. She looks tall though so may sneak in to the final local 8.


Renee Bhagwandeen, 22: For a second, I thought it was LaToya with a new weave. She is definitely a top 8 finalist. She looks good in this photo but I still don’t see this translating into someone who could realistically place in the MU finals. I guess I am still turned off by her modeling pics- she literally looks like skin and bones with no real curves to speak about. Facially though, she is very beautiful. She will be a contender for the final 3 of the local competition in my opinion since she knows how to work the stage and her height is a plus. For now I just don’t see her placing in the top 15 of MU at all. Personally, I would like to be pleasantly surprised when I see her in the final (without the photoshop) because I really want the best rep. for TT but I just don’t see it as yet from this young lady. I just don’t see what the big hype is about.

Greer Iton, 25: Top 8 finalist in my opinion. Top 3 possibility. For now I think she looks way better in SS than Renee. She is in the running for MUTT2011 based on this pic but I don’t know her height. She can do well on the international scene if she is at least 5’8”.

Gabrielle Walcott, 26: It is obvious she has lost at least a few pounds since the screening. The makeup is horrible but she is definitely international material. This is probably the worst photo I have seen of Gabby thus far. Still top 8 finalist and a definite contender for the crown. You can put her onstage with the best and she will still stand out-PERIOD!


Out of these:
Most Beautiful Body: Greer Iton
Top 15 MU contenders: Greer Iton and Gabrielle Walcott

Local TOP 8 FINALISTS:
The ladies I am sure of : (1) Greer Iton, followed closely by (2)Gabrielle Walcott and way down (3)Renee Bhagwandeen.

Renee's appeal in my opinion is only local. Based on her official SS photo, I can't see her doing anything at the preliminary of Miss Universe. Greer Iton is a very pleasant suprprise. I can see her doing very well in the SS preliminary competition of MU and she has alot of great appeal. She is currently the best in SS out of these 8.

...you can't get an accurate impression of who are the real standouts. We all know Gabby looks fantastic in candid pics from any angle but until we see them onstage for the finals we don't have an accurate indicator of their individual strengths and weaknesses. With photoshop, the most you can do are just eliminate the ladies who still don't look that competitive.

Who knows, maybe Renee will actually look competitive in a SS or some other delegate other than Geer, Gabby and Kristy will shine.

P.S. I have not seen the vid.

O.K. So I have finally had a look at all the ladies (well I can’t recall who was the 17th so I probably only looked at the SS shots for 16).

Instead of saying something about all 16, I am just going to cut the fat first. I am not going to say who I think the local judges will place in the final 8 since they sometimes don’t know what the heck they are doing (e.x. Jenna’s exclusion from the final 8 last year). I have to say it again, I don’t give a flying fish about who anyone likes or how many other pageants a delegate competed in or won– I just want the BEST REPRESENTATIVE to the MU pageant. At this stage-the semis- only the top 8 INTERNATIONALLY COMPETITIVE ladies (IN TERMS OF PHYSICAL BEAUTY) should be selected. I don’t care what they have to say for the semis- they passed the prelim interview so we know they have intelligence. We are selecting a rep. for a BEAUTY PAGEANT and not a modeling competition. I don’t want the fittest body to win the SS competition or be in the top 3 of the final – I want the MOST BEAUTIFUL BODY to win-PERIOD!!! She must have the face, shoulders, boobs, waist and hips we expect to see from a MU- DON'T JUST PICK A TALL STICK!!!

The photoshopped pics are really overdone but based on what I have seen from these official pics and untouched photos this is what I have to say of the 16 I can recall (at this point I don’t care to figure out whose official SS pic I probably did not see):


QUITE OBVIOUS THEY COULD NEVER PLACE AT MU BASED ON MERIT:

Brittney, Crystal De Gannes, Kareesia, Meagan Monsegue, Bernice, Cherrese

That’s 6 ladies that should not even be in contention for the crown but I expect Chereese to sneak into the final 8. If Meagan Monsegue places in the final 8 then someone needs to slap the judges and tell them this is MISS UNIVERSE and not some regional pageant like Miss Caraval.


There are only 2 currently who seem to be the total package:
Greer Iton and Gabrielle Walcott (ONE OF THESE SHOULD BE MUTT2011)

Additionally, the other sure top 8 ladies apart from these 2 are (in random order):

Renee Bhagwandeen – I still don’t see what the hoopla is about. She is a model with a pretty face and an O.K. body (even though she is basically right at the peak of her top form) .You could literally see the EFFORT she is putting in to her official SS photo. For me, up to this point all she can do at MU is clap for the finals.

Jeanette – Absolutely slammin’ body. She will have one of the best SS scores at this year’s pageant. (TOP 3 possibility at the local final).

Kristy St. Rose – absolute model but would make a good top 3 finisher. I have to see her for the final to know if she really does have a competitive body. Based on the official SS pic however, she looks like her body is better than Renee’s by a mile.


Other ladies I want to see in the final:

Candace Guppy – needs to lose like 10 lbs but has enough to make the local final 8.

Jessica Didier – Beautiful face! She will not be MTTU2011, but if she is at least 5’8”, then get her a boob job and send her to MW and then MU because she would place.

The final spot for me should go to Shinequa. I HAVE TO SEE THIS YOUNG LADY ON SCREEN-she is definitely not MUTT2011 but there are literally only 2 options for this lady –either she is just another pretty face OR she can be a great future MU finalist. I see some real potential based on the official SS pic and I am keeping my fingers crossed she is indeed as tall (5’10”) as she appears in her photo.
The remaining ladies that I don’t mind seeing more of are:
Juliana James (I absolutely hate her official SS pic but I suspect that she looks much better in person/on video), LaTisha (I just have not seen enough of her)

I don’t know who was #17

So in conclusion, the top 3 currently are:
1. Gabrielle Walcott
2. Greer Iton
3. Cristy St. Rose

This is Mr. Ragunanan's last chance to gain any credibility as a Beauty Pageant Franchise holder. Once is a mistake, twice is a habit and three strikes means you are out. Lee Ann will literally be one of the top 5 contenders in my opinion for the crown. Certainly, if she is trained well for the interview and is wearing a Bobby Ackberalli gown, she may be unstoppable. It will literally take another Miss Russia 2008 to beat her. She is just that good. I am going to say this but put the caveat that I have to see how she actually looks on television to confirm my current postition - if she wins MWTT she will be the BEST local rep. we have had since Wendy, with only Valene and a lesser extent Danielle Jones, coming close. LeeAnn has winner written over her. She could be MISS WORLD 2011.

...on the Miss TT World 2011 facebook page. Finally, I can say Lee Ann Forbes should be the winner and Vaneeta Maharaj needs to come back next year to compete. Both these ladies are officially world class competitors.

I don't know who should fill the 3rd spot but for now if I had to choose someone I would say Brittany.

Nisa and Nariba should be out of contention for the crown. Couva looks short in the group pic. I need to see more of Anna Rosa to make up my mind.

P.S. They really need to figure out what to do with Brittany's hair because it sometimes looks really untidy and then at other times she looks older than she is.

Anyways-Lee Ann AND Vaneeta- one of these should be MWTT.

I really do think Gabby would be a strong contender for a top 10 spot in the prelims and at the same time I think she would have alot of Brazilian appeal. She is just simply beautiful. In the first pic, if you told me she was Brazillian I would believe you. Lol!

She is indeed the top competitor at MUTT2011. I would be shocked if she did not win as I have not seen anyone who comes close in this year's line-up.

I am still waiting for the official pics of the 17 semi-finalists. I see some people really 'love' Renee but in my opinion she looks like she has literally no hips in her modelling pics. However, I have no idea if these modeling pics were from years ago or not. It is still possible they are old pics and her body has matured since then. For now, I am still yawing.

I just hope the semifinal judges don't exclude Gabby from the final like they did Jenna. For me, I don't give a flying fish how many pageants a young lady won before - if she is the best of the bunch then by all means select the best-PERIOD!!!

O.K. So here's my opinion on the official SS photos of the 8 finalists for MWTT 2011:

Best Photo & Best Physique: Lee Ann Forbes
Hands-down, she is the one to beat. She has a great physique and knows how to pose well. She looked the most comfortable in her photo and has a winning smile. Absolutley georgeous young lady! In my opinion she is in contention for the MWBB 2011 title.

2nd Place : Vaneeta Maharaj
A very quiet beauty. Great body and very unique look. If sent to MW she will be one of the late favorites among pageant fans.

3rd Place -Cova
I absolutely hate the top but she manages to rescue it. Her body is not in top beauty pageant form but with another 5-8 lbs off and quite a bit of toning she could shine. She definitely has some potential SS-Wise. (Could she be the indian version of Kenisha Thom? I will have to wait and see how she looks onscreen for the television broadcast of the final).

These are the 3 who really look interesing. Now for the others:

4th Place- Anna Rosa
Great body but how competitive? I just don't know from the awkward pose. HOWEVER, I do want to see more.

As for the remaing 4:
Nariba - Truthfully she looks very hard and austere in her photos. Her facial features are so strong that they basically make her look older than she is. She has a slammin' body and is 1000% a high fashion model. I just don't see her doing much for MW THIS YEAR!!! I do however expect to see her in the final 3 but I personally think she needs to come back in a couple of years when her body has matured a bit. Truthfully, if the local judges are not very discreminating in their taste level, I would not be surprised if she is 1st in SS. However, I must stress that this is a beauty pageant and the most beautiful body -not the hardest or fittest body- should receive the top score. Regardless, even I have to admit that this lady is freakin' interesting to look at. I just don't think it would be in TT's and her own best interest to send her to MW this year to just clap for the final. Maybe, in a couple of years she could be a much better competitor. [There is absolutely some potential there.] I could devinitely see her creating a stirr in a couple of years at MU, and yes even MW.

Nisa-great body but just too short and not as curvaceous as Vaneeta and Crystal.

Brittany- I just can't say anything because in ever pic it seems that they have her in some weird pose that obscures part of her body. Great skin tone but no one in their right mind will be able to make a clear judgement call based on this photo.

Cherise- Beautiful face and fit body but absolutely the least competitive looking in her SS shot. I don't see her doing anything at all at MW.

NOW, with all that being said, I must again say that I am totally impressed with this very strong slate of delegates. Each of these 8 fine ladies has a very unique and wonderful look. I can't wait to see them onscreen without the photoshop so that we can tell who are the real international competitors.

Beauty queens help needy
By CAROL MATROO Sunday, April 24 2011

It was a fun-filled day with charitable beauties as the eight finalists of the Miss Trinidad and Tobago World 2011 teamed up with the non-governmental organisation and a community-based organisation, the Jericho Project, to provide some hope, sustenance and joy to some of the nation’s neediest, yesterday.

The young ladies and members of the Jericho Project began their day by distributing lunches to the needy at Columbus Square in Port-of-Spain, after which they proceeded to the Queen’s Park Savannah where they engaged in a friendly cricket match with the big prize being...one dozen rotis.

Ambassador for the Jericho Project, boxer Ria Ramnarine, who has been with the organisation for just six weeks, said there was a cause to assist any individual, institution or home in any way.

“The Miss TT World finalists are assisting us with the daily soup distribution in the south-central Port-of Spain branch that gives food to the needy.

“We thought it would be a good way of bringing awareness to them and us, the Jericho Project, because it has been doing so much. If we can get more people to notice us then we can get more sponsors,” Ramnarine said after playing a game of cricket.

Minister in the Ministry of the People and MP for Lopinot/Bon Air West, Dr Lincoln Douglas, was also on hand to lend his support.

Douglas said he just wanted to share and participate with the group in their sharing with the less fortunate in society. The minister also felt that there was a greater calm in the country during this Christian celebration.

“Good Friday and Easter serves to remind us to get rid of the negativity and egos and look toward a resurrection. Coming from a Christian background that is what I presented to my children this morning,” Douglas said.

Chairman of the Jericho Project, Phillip Edward Alexander, said everything they did required volunteers, donations and help from the public.

“We try to do it in as a big a public way as possible. On May 1, the acting president is going to be throwing out the first ball for the actual launch of our Jericho Project/Francis Shoe Locker Amateur Cricket League.

“We’re in our second year and everyone here is like family,” Alexander pointed out to several members who were enjoying the cricket match, including puppy Snoopy, who received his share of hugs from everyone.

“Right now we’re being decimated by the girls,” Alexander confessed.

Miss Santa Flora Neesa Mohammed said the eight delegates decided to gather under one unity banner with the Jericho Project because of one common goal.

“We all have something in common and that is to be charitable and assist the need...and have good, clean fun,” Mohammed said.

...we finally have a couple of unphotoshopped pics, albiet we only get a clear shot of Lee Ann. Again I have to say LeeAnn and Vaneeta shine out of this bunch. Couva looks great also and I wish I could see Nariba in a clear candid shot smiling.

Hey guys I am happy to be back. I had to take a few months off after La Toya's ommission from the Top 15 at Miss Universe 2010.

So pageant season is here again!!! YEAH!!! Trini77 thanks so much for your daily posts!! Very informative!! First off let me say that the line up for Miss TTU is good so far, with Gabrielle Walcott as my favorite so far.

Gabrielle looked stunning in every picture I saw her in at the screening and from the past two years since her stint at Miss World. I really do think that she is the best delegate so far and WILL bring TnT back to the Top 15.

I see from the Miss Trinidad and Tobago Universe Facebook Page that people really like Renee'. But I have to tell you that I was not blown away by her pictures. Maybe after the professional pictures that the girls are taking this weekend I will be more inclined in that direction.

Another thing the pageant company HAS to set down guidelines as to what these young ladies wear to the screenings aside from their swimsuits. The dress code should be business casual or casual chic. I was VERY frustrated to see girls showing up in dingy vests and old jeans. If you are going to do jeans at least make it a new pair with a nice top or shirt.

These young women have to realise that this is a job and this screening is the first step in the interview process. That being said I am again happy to be back and I wish all these young ladies the best of luck on this amazing journey.

...so good to see you back on here. Gabby is the only one so far that looks internationally competitive. Renee just looks like a pretty litte girl in the pics I have seen so far.I don't see her doing anything at MU at all but maybe I will change my mind when I see more. For now, she is just a yawn. Her modelling pics on the web tell me her body is not that good in terms of SS impact but maybe her body has matured since.

For now, I see a few pretty ladies but only Gabby looks like the real deal.

P.S. I think LeeAnn Forbes could win BB and place in the finals of Top Model at MW. In my opinion she is the complete package and could be our second Miss World.

...even though I agree that it would be great to have a dress code for the screenings, I don't think they should put any in place since alot of ladies tend to screen at the last minute and we don't want to burden potential candidates further with any requirements.

Personally though, skin tight jeans and a fitted white top are enough for a screening.

I can't wait to see the transformations for the semi-finals which take place in 2 weeks. I think Mr. Lee said that they hope to crown the new rep. by the 14th or 15th May. Eight (8) finalists will be chosen to compete for the final.

From the few pics I have seen I have to say that this competition is Gabby's to lose. She is way ahead of the others in terms of beauty. She has a flawless pic in the Trinidad Guardian today and the interview was excellent. She seems like the complete package. I have no idea if the boob job issues were corrected since MW2008 but if it was
not then that is the first thing the pageant team needs to do-get the boobs redone, if indeed Gabby wins MUTT2011.

The San Fernando screening may have been small but I have to say that apparently the best ladies screened in South. I expect Britteny Alvarez (South), Renee Bhagwandeen (POS)along with the Tobago lady in the pink ss (don't know her name) to place in the final 8.

I have to say it-the MWTT2011 lineup is way better than the MUTT2011 lineup, BUT REMEMBER we just need a great winner-not a great slate of local finalists. LeAnn Forbes and Gabby are my top picks for the respective titles. I have a good feeling about Gabby's chances at MU this year and I am already convinced Ms. Forbes is in contention for the Miss World 2011 title. It will be very difficult to beat LeAnn if she is prepped well for the MW interview.
After the last 2 years of disappointing results, these 2 ladies can put TT back on the international beauty map in a big way.

I also think Gabrielle Walcott is our best hope for Miss Universe and also think the best bet for Miss World is Lee Ann Forbes. They have what it takes to make a huge impact. I really hope Gabrielle wins Miss T&T Universe, she will do great at Miss Universe. By the way, do anyone know why Adrian Raymond, Peter Elias and Leah Guevera have not been on the selecting panel of the Miss Universe T&T pageant?. Are they still on board?

I really appreciate it.

O.K. have have to admit it- Gabby's pic in last week's Trinidad Guardian is by far the best I have seen from her. I don't recall a better look at MW. At MW she placed exactly where I predicted she would-3rd. For MU, I am having a very good feeling about her chances. Although she is certainly not the typical MU body type-if she places in the final she can realistically go very far. Renee looks like her biggest competition so far and I also expect the dark indian lady present at the last screening to make the final 8. I can't wait to see how they look.

On an aside, in terms of overall slate of candidates, I have to say that Miss Universe Jamaica 2011 is certainly the best I have seen in years for that nation.

I agree with you on Lee Ann, she has great potential to do well at both Miss Universe and Miss World

...to me looks good but not internationlly competitive (at least from what I have seen thus far). Maybe this will change when I see more of her. If I get a clear pic of her in SS from the front then I could be more certain. For now she just looks like another beautiful lady who could be clapping onstage at MU. Really, if Vaneeta or Anna Rosa was in the MUTT line-up, would Renee appear this competitive-ABSOLUTELY NOT!

That being said, any delegate could look like a disaster in ever pic leading up to the local final-It has been the case for me that what I predict based on how the lady looks during the local final night of competition pans out in the international arena. For instance, Kenisha was a hot mess in every pic (with the exception of 4 or 5, if that much- at this time I can only recall two) before the local final of MWTT2004. However, for the final competition she was a flat 9.0 in my opinion. So at least for me, only the final night is decisive for ALL the delegates.

For now the only international competitor I see in the MUTT line-up is Gabby. For MW, we have only sent one candidate since Giselle's win who could have grabbed the int'al title-that was Valene. If LeeAnn wins she will be the second.

Date: 10th April 2011
Author: Sean Nero

Former Miss T&T World Gabrielle Walcott is back in the pageant spotlight. Three years after the young beauty represented T&T at the 58th annual Miss World Pageant 2008, held at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa, and clinched the second runner-up spot, she is making her return. Walcott’s ranking at that international event was the highest of any local delegate on the pageant circuit, since Wendy Fitzwilliam won the Miss Universe title in 1998. Now, Walcott is offering herself as the candidate for another revered pageant—Miss Universe. Appearing at the first in a series of nationwide screenings held at San Fernando City Hall, Harris Promenade on April 2, Walcott caused quite a buzz among those in attendance. By the end of the day, she had beauty pundits raving. But what could have motivated Walcott, 26, to make this move, with so many prime happenings in her life? She’s an emerging businesswoman in the planning phase of expanding her fashion retail boutique called Spoilt located at Trincity Mall.

Her love-life with boyfriend Lee Pollonais was blissfully stable and she was rediscovering interest in her much publicised hobbies which include equestrian show jumping, art, acting and theatre. Well, according to Walcott, all it took was a Facebook message from celebrity fitness trainer Stevenson Dillon. “My past trainer Stevenson Dillon wrote me a lovely e-mail on Facebook to say he had seen my Carnival pictures and he really wanted to encourage me to go up for the screening. I hadn’t thought about is at all. I didn’t even know when the screening was. Then, I spoke to Peter Elias, and another friend Gerald Hart. They said, Gabby, go!” Walcott related. She added: “I had a wonderful experience representing T&T at Miss World. I was proud to be the ambassador for T&T. I just thought this could be another wonderful experience and another wonderful opportunity to wave T&T’s flag high, if chosen.” But Walcott was cautiously optimistic about her return to the pageant life and her chances of emerging tops in the local leg. In South Africa, Walcott was accompanied by her mother Camille, described as her best friend and rock, and grandmother Margot Alamani, another big supporter. Both have again given their full approval to Walcott’s renewed pageant quest.

Despite the fact that she had an edge on a large number of potential delegates, she wanted the best candidate to be chosen, if not her. Walcott said: “Everyone has a fair chance. This team is doing this very legitimately. They are screening in many different places: San Fernando, Tobago and Port-of-Spain. They are looking for the right girl who is ready, who can represent T&T well, as a great ambassador and who embodies all that Miss Universe embodies in mind, body and soul. She added: “If there is someone that comes around that has that package a little more polished than myself, then it only be fair that the person rightly be given the crown and rightly be given the opportunity to represent T&T. “I’m hoping that they’ll see my experience if that is what it will take. This is a job that should not be taken lightly at all. The person has to know how to best promote T&T on a world stage.”

Walcott admitted to being nervous at last weekend’s screening. Even though she felt confident, her knees buckled. “Of course my knees shook. I was fresh. It was exciting,” said Walcott, laughing. Before Carnival 2011, thoughts of returning to a pageant were far from her thoughts. She was busy doing charitable work.
Like Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar, Walcott’s list of causes focuses on the welfare of children. She (Walcott) raised funds for paediatric cancer and recently got involved in the Jericho Project. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that Persad-Bissessar served as an inspiration to Walcott. “It’s so amazing that we have a woman prime minister. I think she brings something to the table that no one else could have. “I’m inspired by her on so many levels that I thought, well, this is Trinidad and Tobago’s year (at Miss Universe),” said Walcott. During her time as a beauty ambassador Walcott said she became even more passionate about her identity having developed a greater sense of nationalism.

Now, as she embraced womanhood, Walcott spoke candidly about her challenges to find meaning in life, revealing there were times when being caught up in work and the fashion was not that thoroughly fulfilling.
“Life is one big school, where we make mistakes and we fall down, but it’s all about how we get up and how we move forward with our heads held high. I try not to have regrets in life, because I try to look at it from a point of view that you need to make mistakes to learn. Sometimes they’re the biggest and greatest lessons in life,” Walcott said. Lauding the guidance of her father Derek Walcott, a Roman Catholic deacon, she said: “Daddy is always there to make sure that I remember what is really important in life and to give back to your community; those who are less fortunate: the sick and the needy. That is why I got involved in the Jericho Project. When I’m not doing something like that, I tend to feel empty. I asked God for an outlet, for something to make me feel fulfilled. He literally put it in my lap. Now, I want to be an inspiration to other young women.”

In about 2 weeks the new Miss World TT will be crowned. In my opinion there is literally only one obvious choice - Lee Ann Forbes. She is absolutely what MW and Mrs. Morley are looking for. She is on-par with the best we have sent to MW -Jiselle, Valene and Gabby. Should she win, I hope Mr. Ragunanan really does what is in the best interest of the Nation and asks for input from Adrian Raymond when it comes to interview prep. We are a small country and ladies like this only come round once in a lifetime.
Realistically, I have to say that from a physical standpoint, she is the best we have had since Wendy with only Valene and Gabby coming close. I am just hoping that the judging panel is not the utter mess we saw last year.

Now, with respect to the final 8-I have to say that Mr. Ragunanan is definitely listening to what is being said and growing from it. We are a small country and I don't see why the number of finalist for any beauty pageant should ever reach double digits. Additionally, this year every lady in the line up has something special about her look but we have to choose the best BEAUTY and WORLD CLASS COMPETITOR! With proper interview prep. our rep. will score above 9.20 so I am not even going to pretend that that should be a major issue.

Vaneeta is a beauty who should be looked at for a future pageant (at least based on the pics that have been released). I need to see more of Anna Rosa and Couva. All the others in my opinion don't have a chance at making the finals of MW on beauty merit and should be out of contention for a top 3 spot at the local final (but then again we all saw the CRAZY that was the local final of MWTT2010). Nariba is 1000% high fashion model, the type Calvin French loves and I expect her to win top Model TT. That being said I don't see anything that says 'beauty queen' about her. Nariba could create a stirr among pageant fans, place in the top 10 of Top Model and top 30 of Beachbeauty but that is it. I don't see the sense in wasting a couple hundred thousand dollars to send a real high fashion model to MW2011 to clap for the final-the only real event at the month long pageant that matters, in terms of branding TT. However, I would be lying if I said I don't want her to reenter another pageant. I am extremely interested in seeing Nariba in about the next 2-3 years when her body has matured a bit and she has naturally put on about 10 lbs or so. She still has a unique look but can never be a beauty queen within the next year. If in a couple years her facial features soften a bit then I would probably say she could realistically compete for an international final.

O.K. so I have have stated what is my opinion in terms of beauty.

However, this is what I predict for the final 3:
1. LeeAnn Forbes
2. Nariba
3. Vaneeta

I just hope the local judges know a beauty queen when they see her and are not just impressed with how fit and toned a delegate is. We need judges that can discriminate between the two. We are looking for a beautiful face and beautiful body - a lady who is stunningly beautiful and not just stunning.

Lovely Bunch of Girls

From what I see so far I vote for Vaneeta, then Cherisa, then Lee Ann

But I am disappointed with the photographer- To date we have not seen close up of the girls. Hair always on their face. Funeral outfits. Come on - this is a beauty show not a funeral.

...Only Vaneeta comes close. These are the only 2 world class competitors that I see. In the last photoshoot however Nariba does an about turn. For me this will be the top 3 at the competition. If Mr. Ragunanan is serious about making top 3 at MW this year then they need to choose LeeAnn Forbes.

Nariba needs to come back in a couple of years as she looks 100% model and 0% beauty queen. She needs to do a Kenisha Thom and come back in 2013. Kenisha (who for me is the best example of what a T&T beauty qeen should be) had a very austere face when she first came to the pageant scene at the age of 18 yrs, but by age 20 her facial features had softened greatly. Nariba has a very slammin' physique but she looks way too scrawny. I do believe, Nariba is the right weight for her age, but I am pretty sure that in the next 18-24 months she is going to gain about 5-6 pounds of superficial fat that will soften out her look a bit in terms of physique and facial features.[P.S. The superficial fat I am talking about is the same thin layer of fat that women have that gives them the sexy physique we all love-I just don't recall the correct name for it.] In about the next couple of years I still expect Nariba to be high-fashion but she will then be closer to the optimum look she would want to achieve for a beauty queen. I don't see the sense in sending her to MW to essentially clap for the finals when in 2 years, with softer features she could be a real contender for a top 10 or even top 5 spot.

On an aside, can anyone tell me the heights of the delegates?

Lee Ann in my opinion could realistically win Miss World 2011 if she is prepped well. She is my pic for Miss World TT 2011.

As for MUTT2011, Gabby is the frontrunner. I saw a very brief clip of the POS screening on TV6 and even though I did not get a very good look at the ladies one indian lady did stand out in a very big way-if she is a finalist she could give Gabby a run for her money.

This slate of delegates is 1000% better than the previous 2 years. Miss St James (Lee Ann Forbes) looks like she could be a serious contender for the MW crown if prepped well. I am seeing her as our strongest chance at a top 3 finish in the Beach Beauty Competition at MW if her officiall SS pic on the Miss TT World 2011 facebook page is an accurate indicator of how she looks. If she is at least 5'9" and she is prepped well for the interview segment of MW (I already know the gym experts will do a good job) we could possibly win MW. Now all this is based on the photoshopped pic. I will have to wait for the local finals to see how she really looks on video.

Vaneeta Maharaj is another quite beauty who I think can do well at MW. These are the two to watch out for.

Nariba is just too muscular and even though she has a slamming model body I certainly would not describe it as the body of a beauty queen. I a few years though I think she will have a softer body definition and could be a great MUniverse TT competitor. For now I totally have to say she is NOT what MW is looking for.

I also must comment that I am wondering why we have not been able to get a clear pic of Miss LaRomaine (Brittany Wiltshire)so far- she is always posing in such a way as to obscure some part of her body.

St James and Dabadie are the two to beat at this year's competition. If St James wins then we are in MW contention again. Congrats to the franchise holder-he has identitied a very competitive lady for the local finals.

I suspect the local judges will still place Nariba in the top 3 but I personally don't see her doing much at MW-this is a BEAUTY pageant-NOT A MODELLING COMPETITION.

Miss St. James all the way!!!

I am blow away by the official MT&T swimsuit pic of Miss St. James- that is the best MT&T SS body that I have seen at MW since Kenisha Thom- only Valene comes close to that body. Additionally, Miss Dabadie is another world class beauty. These 2 ladies are really stunning beauties- very soft appealing facial features, fantastic hair and slamming bodies that look very natural and healthy. I am just very excited at the possibility of Le Ann Forbes being MWT&T 2011- she looks way better than Yendi Phillips (who we all loved at MW).

Miss St James is by far the strongest and most competitive looking followed by Miss Maharaj (Dabadie). These are the only 2 who could possibly place in the MW finals in my opinion. The other 2 who could place in the top 3 of the local competition are Nariba (who in my opinion just looks plane hard-she would place in top 30 of Beach Beauty of MW but that is it-too much model with not beauty pageant appeal in my opinion- I suspect the local judes will place her in the top 3. Only Couva could pull an upset to make the final local 3 over Nariba.

I am just hoping St. James wins and that the MT&T oranizers seek out Adrian's guidance for the interview prep. for MW. Bobby Ackberali should dress Ms. Forbes for the international final if she is indeed our rep. This young lady is just stunning.

...after seeing other pics of Ms. Forbes I have to say she would definitely be a top 3 contender for the MW crown if she is prepped well (especially in terms of the interview). In fact I am going to say that if she does not win MW she will be a future top 5 finalist at Miss Universe (at the least).

I see 3 (instead of 2) were selected from Tobago. The delegate who was #19 looked the best but she absolutely needs a boob job. Additionally, another delegate from Trinidad was chose. So for the semis, there will be at least 17 competitors. I am glad that once you are a T&T national you can screen at any venue.

I have to say though that I am concerned about the quality of ladies that have lined up. No offence to our beautiful Gabby, but I am seriously hoping Valene screens. Gabby would be a great MUT&T but I really am concerned that she is not the typical MU body type at all. Valene however, would be the strongest chance we have had at a top 5 placement since 2004, and personally I think she could make a realistic grab for the MU title. Valene in gown was basically top 3 at MW, and she looked like a winner. I guess we have to wait and see what happens.

The more I seee Vaneeta the more I love her. For me Vaneeta and LeeAnn Forbes are the two world class beauties who can make it to the finals of MW. Anna Rosa also looks lovely but I am not sure how cometitive she will look onstage alongside the other ladies. All 8 ladies are in great shape physically but LeeAnn and Vaneeta look world class. I have to comment that Anna Rosa also has a good body but she looks short in her official SS shot. Beautypageant wise I know I previously said my top 4 are Vaneeta, LeeAnn, Nariba and Couva but after looking at several other pics, I have to say the top 3 should be 1. Leann Forbes 2. Vaneeta and Anna Rosa.

Truthfully though, I am concerned about the quality of judges for the final. I am expecting Nariba to place in the top 3 if we have a judging panel that is the mess that last year's panel was. Nariba's features and body are just plane austere-in a couple years I expect her body and cheek bones to hopefully soften as her body matures. For now, I think she will just be another repeat of last year's rep.

I still don't think Gabby has the typical MU body type but I think she would definitely be a strong contender for a top 10 spot in the preliminaries of Miss Universe 2011 and that the Brazillian people would love her look 100%.

On an aside, I am still yawning at the 3 finalists for MWorldT&T already selected. I am waiting for the transformation. I hope a stunner actually makes it to the top this time around.

...five semifinalists will be chose from the 8 women who screened in San Fernando, 8 from Port of Spain and 2 from Tobago. From the 15 semifinalists, I guess about 7 or 8 will be chosen for the finals. At least Gabby's presence indicates that we are already in a good place and a couple of the other San Fernando ladies also looked interesting so lets hope we make a real impact this year at MU2011.

...if I had to choose between Valene and Gabby I think Valene would be the safe choice and also a top 5 contender.

I see MWT&T is scheduled for May 6th at the Cascadia Hotel. I still am hoping the franchise holder gets his act together. You cannot tell me you want to use over $150,000 of taxpayer's cash to train another clapper. I am really fed up after the last two editions of MWT&T. The one lady (Ms. Abrahams, I believe) who actually was competitively beautiful was not even able to crack the top 5 at last year's pageant. What a horror!

With respect to the local MU team, I hope they realize that Trinidad and Tobago has a relatively small population and we need to place the best ladies in the final regardless of if they already competed in a previous pageant. They blanked Jenna last year and ended up just clapping at the MU final. Choose the best without bias this time. The only delegate who I was sure could make a strong grab for the top 15 at last year's MUTT was Ms. Arima. Ms. Plymouth was beautiful but she needs a boob job-plane and simple.

All the best for the next two screenings guys!

...so far are Brittany Wiltshire, Nariba Edwards and Nisa Mohammed. I am certainly not impressed with any of them based on their photo in the Trinidad Express (2nd April, 2011). Let me be clear, these are pretty ladies by everyday standard but we are looking for a world beauty so I have to be blunt since pussyfooting around the facts seem to not work with the franchise holder. Here are my initial comments:
Brittany's face looks flawless but she appears to be a bit thick, Nariba looks scrawny and Nisa just looks plane short. Nariba needs to do something different with her hair.

Valene was an excellent MW rep who happened to be one of the slimest MW reps (possibly the slimest ever) that TT has sent to the competition. However, the word 'scrawny' never entered my mind when I saw Valene's photos. I don't think it is a good thing when the first thing that comes to mind when I see a delegate is 'scrawny'-case and point the majority of the clappers at last year's edition of MWTT.

Please get a competitive winner this time folks! I don't plan to bash you but after the last 2 disasters, I plan to be honest and straightforward with my comments.

...official picks of the ladies are up on the Missosology website at http://www.missosology.info/forum/viewtopic.php?t=76141

Based on these picks, I am loving Brittany but I am still very cautious about saying anything about the other two. The photos look heavily airbrushed. Ms. Edwards has a very 'model' look and I am not too sure about her fitting the mould of a 'beauty queen.' The long hair down is certainly a drastic improvement from the Express pic though. Brittany has the classic 'girl next door look' and her face looks simply stunning but I really cannot tell what her body would look like in a swimsuit from those pics-stunning face nonetheless. Nisa is beautiful but I don't think she is in contention and the photographer has over airbrushed her face in some of the photos. That being said, with all the photoshop these days you can't be certain who is really the contender until she strolls out on stage in front of the TV cameras. So you never know!

P.S. Whoever styled the ladies for their intro to the media, needs to learn that sometimes less is more. The outfits for the 3 taller ladies were just too busy-Brittany looked like she was 15 lbs heaver than she is in the official photos (yes, burn that white jacket) and Ms. Edwards has a very strong jawline so they should have focused on better hair and makeup to soften her strong facial features. Additionaly, the layering and multiple chains is just too busy. The public wants to SEE THE LADIES, not a busy jumble that looks like someone vomited a pack of skittles.

...I have to say these 3 ladies are a big improvement from the last 2 reps we had, but I hope Nariba begins to smile some more. Here features are so strong that she literally looks like she could beat the crap out of someone. Lol! She is very modelesque though. I thik she would probably look a little better with a couple of pounds added on though.

All 3 ladies have good looks but I am very cautious to say they are beautiful (even if they do look beautiful in the pics)because of the heavy photoshop and the past 2 editions of the pageant.

...can I assume that the franchise holder and his team already know something we don't...i.e. Valene is planning on entering. I really wish both the MW and MU franchises end up back together under one roof so to speak and that we have a great pageant team with Adrian as the interview facilitator/trainer.

Does anyone know how tall Sarah Radhay is? (she was 3rd at last year's pageant. I already know that Ms. Plymouth from last year's pageant is 5'8" and Ms. Arima looked taller than her at the pageant.

[> Subject: Trini77, I know you are hoping that Valene enters again. You also said that you dont want to see Gabrielle Walcott at Miss Universe. Can I ask why?. I actually think Gabrielle can do quite well if sent. Do you remember Makeda O'neil?. I think she can do well to.

Gabriella Walcott is not what MU is looking for, although I would have preferred her over LaToya anyday (along with Makeda O'neil, Ms. Arima, Ms. Plymouth and Sarah Radhay). Ms. Universe org. looks for a very petite body type with plenty of curves. Gabby to me looks more like the classic eurocentric old world beauty. Gabby was a fantastic MW rep and I think she should not bother with MU. If she does decide to enter though the pageant company needs to get her boobs re-done.

As for Makeda O'Neil I really have not heard anything from her. Did she screen last year or did she decide on not entering any more pageants? Who knows?

Valene in my opinion has the body and the looks to make a good grab for the top 5 provided we Peter Elias does not put her in another less that favorable gown (yes, I was not impressed with LaToya's gown). If Valene is MUT&T2011 I have to be very frank and say Bobby Ackberalli should get to design her gowns. I really love Peter Elias' designs but I have to say that Bobby's work is perfection.

I am just hoping that the pageant team gets it through their head that no one at MUorg gives a rat's butt about how much modeling experience our rep has or how stunning a model is...a model and a beauty queen are two different things. Yes, models can make the transition to beauty queen and the converse is also true, but if you want to get a model then get the franchise for Top Model T&T. We are dealing with beauty pageants when we talk about MU and MW. Let's look for beauty queens who need polishing...not a freakin' model and hope we could put her together to convince everyone she is a beauty queen when she was obviously NOT what MU is looking for.

Again, I will say it, I have no qualms about LaToya's representation- truth be told she gave 100% and did the best that she could at MU. I was acutally surprised that she got so much attention when MU kicked off and based on that I thought O.K. apparently LaToya would do extremely well and at the same time move MU in a different direction because she was certainly not what I would call typical MU material. I think we all learned quite quickly when the top 15 where announced that we need to send the quality of ladies that MU is asking for and not what we think she should be.

I totally agree with you and what's this talk about Peter Elias picking someone already? You are not the franchise holder and Alyssa Ali as beautiful as she may be is a model, not much Beauty Queen material so hope the MUT&T know what they are doing this time....we need a winner not a model who looks like just a pretty face.

Story Created: Mar 19, 2011 at 12:37 AM ECT

(Story Updated: Mar 19, 2011 at 12:37 AM ECT )

NationWide searches are now on for eight beautiful young women to experience the Miss TT World 2011 "Beauty in the Making" pageant event. The event which climaxes into a grand final show in beautiful Tobago at the end of April will bring together eight delegates from around Trinidad and Tobago with countless fashion shoots, appearances, intense training and great Island fun. The majority of the production will occur in Tobago and with it an associated Television Reality series documenting the entire event. Franchise director Michael Ragoonanan has teamed with photographer Calvin French, REVLON International and Caribbean Belle Magazine along with one of the major sponsors Cascadia Hotel to make the event fantastic.
Nationwide Castings begin on:

Sat 26th - Sun 27th March in Siparia, San Fernando and Point Fortin.

Sat 2nd - 3rd April in Chaguanas, Couva, Arima, Port of Spain.

Sat 9th April in Tobago

I am a bit disappointed that there will be a separate final for Miss World but at least it looks like Mr. Ragoonanan is learning (albiet a bit too slowly for my liking) to focus on the selection first and then training afterwards. I am glad to see that there will be nation wide screenings for two weekends and that there will be less than 10 finalists-7 or 8 is more than enough. I hope he gets past delegates like Kenisha Thom-Selvon and Wendy to judge the pageant and that there is literally no gov't minister on the judging panel. Let the gov't minister sash or place the crown on the winner's head but focus on getting the right beauty. Our last 2 reps were two of the most unattractive reps. at their respective competition. I hope they choose a beauty this time and stop wasting taxpayer's money on unattractive non-competitive ladies.

I really think Chanelle should re-enter miss TNT,I am still baffled how herself and jenna marie did not make the final cut.I think Nisa can do well also. I have been impressed by Soowan, I have her on my list she is the one with the braids.

...is everything MW is looking for but I would suggest two small implants but even without them I think we would have a contender for a top 5 spot or at least Queen of the Caribbean (assuming she would be preped. properly). I have absolutely no confidence though in the current MWT&T franchise holder training her well. He needs to crown our rep. for MW at least 7 months before the actual pageant kicks off (that is 8 months before the MW final). We can prep. well for SS and gown (and yes, Bobby Ackberali should be the only designer doing the final gown for any real contender we send to MW) BUT if we expect to crack the top 5 we have to nail the interview. An intelligent answer and a pageant appropriate intelligent answer are two different things and I don't think for one minute either of the ladies that have been sent by the current MWT&T franchise holder are really scoring any 9s in the interview department at all. I can confidently say that we have never had a MT&T place at MU or MW without scoring above a 9.2 in interview.

I have these suggestions for the MWT&T franchise holder if he insists on not merging with the MUT&T org for their finals:
1. Choose no more than 10 ladies for a final (less would be ideal; the same goes for MW)
2. Instead of wasting energy and time training women for 3 months, hold 2 screenings instead about a week or 2 weeks apart. In the 3rd week do a closed door semifinal with pageant experts to choose the finalists.
3. One week after the semifinal, do a small final with judges who are beauty pageant experts (recent and I do stress "recent" finalists, fashion industry experts). Why the heck would you choose a bunch of gov't ministers and human resource people to judge a pageant is beyond me. What the heck do these people know about what MU or MW is looking for.
4. Beauty should be the focus. The best in SS should be the one with the most beautiful body, not the fittest body. Remember you have time to work on toning and weight after the finals.
5. Use a standard size, one-corlor, 2 piece SS not 'string and ting' SS-I don't give flying fish about who designed it.
6. The interview should be about stage presence, and confidence not necessarily the best answer.
7. SS and gown scores should be added to interview scores to select the winner.

Trini 77 you are so right i was thinking the same thing about having two screenings.And the judges should be young or past beauty queens someone who has represented us in international pageants,someone who has competed with the competition and know what they are looking for,or someone in the fashion or music industry.I also think they should bring back the sponsoring of these girls.I think the local pageant is lacking glamour i miss the beautiful individual gowns that they used to wear when Kim was the franchise holder, our delegates looks the worst compare to the other girls at their finals.

[> [> [> [> Subject: Yes, i agree with you Trini77. I do think that the Miss Trinidad and Tobago World and Universe should try and merge together and pick two girls who they know they can train well to be top contenders internationally. But the Miss World franchise holder does not seem to want to do that. I agree with both Chenelle and Nissa getting small implants.

...when I said 10 ladies for the MWT&T finals, I also meant to say additionally no more than 10 men should be selected for the MrWT&T final and not "MW."

Another comment I have to make is that you have to be careful with weighing the judging panel down with people who are only into the modeling industry- we could end up with another LaToya while the more obvious choice is tossed away. I am not trying to hate on the current pageant team, but I have to say that I believe that they got exactly what they deserved this year...big hype with nothing of real worth to show for it at the MU final. They shafted Jenna, plane and simple. Negative energy always comes back to bite you where you least expect it.

I hope both the franchises end up back in Peter Elias' hands.

Why are people getting confused with this? Models are NOT beauty queens and La Toya should have shown us that. Why are you suggesting that Soowan Bramble enter? I have spoken to her on many occasion and she is a model in every sense of the word. She wants to be a model and spends her life perfecting her craft. I totally agree with you on Chenelle but she is also a model. We need to pick girls who understand what a MU competition is not girls who choose to look pretty and wear a dress just for showing.

At the end of the day it's a competition and even our MW girl doesn't seem to understand that. It is a competition and the winner must exude grace, poise, beauty, intelligence and the ability to woo the judges, not move a camera. Height is not as important as people make it seem. How tall was Giselle or Penny? How tall was Miss Mexico, take a look at the winners before them height is not very important.

Plus why is Peter Elias still on the board the man doesn't even make his own clothes! Why not let past winners and MU gurus pick the winners. What about Wendy, Giselle, Penny I'm sure they wouldn't mind if they were asked to sit at the judges row for they know how long it has been since T&T got a win in both competitions. Maybe even get an educational perspective so that the girls can be ready for any question. If we want to win, we need to get serious about this. Also a screening gives all the girls a chance to compete to hold such a title as Miss T&T, please tell me it's a rumor that the rep has been "hand-picked" by Mr. Elias, This is crap!!! Everyone deserves a chance; no preference, no favoritism. Earn your chance fair and square. Believe me they learn they appreciate the title more if they earn it.......

It seems that screenings for MT&T will be announced within the next couple of weeks. I can't wait to hear the date of the final. I hope the organizers crown both our Miss World and Miss Universe reps. at the same event from the same batch of 8 or 9 ladies.

Well regardless of all the bad things going on in the country including the economy, I am still happy that our beautiful sister isle of Tobago is the host for MW 2011. I am just hoping that in March the big announcement by the MUT&T camp is that the selection process for both reps. to MW and MU will be consolidated, after all we want to send a winner for the MW crown in November and only 2 months prior to that is MW. I am keeping my fingers crossed that we could win MW this year. Lets hope that Adrian does the interview prep. for both out MU and MW reps. this year.

What a disgrace- Davia taking her mother along with her to "get on bad" in front of Mrs. Morley and the reigning Miss World and MW 1st-runner up. This is just the last straw for me. For the past 2 years we have sent reps that could easily be among the top 10 ugliest at each respective edition of MW-we all know the local franchise holder (along with his judges) don't know what the heck qualifies as an international competitor-but to even have such a situation precipitate on T&T shores is just plain disgusting, tasteless and embarrassing. I hope Mr. Lee or Adrian take over the MWT&T franchise this year.

I don't know if we will actually host MW2011 but we can't keeping sending clappers when my taxpayer's money is being spent. T&T does not have $300,000 to waste, last time I checked.

DAVIA SHOULD JUST APOLOGISE FOR WHAT SHE DID, BECAUSE SHE KNOW DA*B WELL WHAT SHE WAS DOING WHEN SHE TOOK HER MOTHER ALONG TO SEE MRS. MORLEY. I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS LADY TO NO LONGER BE A REIGNING MT&T.

This year marks 25 years since Giselle Laronde won Miss World in 1986. I remember she was dubbed "The Caribbean Cracker" by admirers and the press back in England then. Today she is still very beautiful and gifted. I find it strange that she has never been featured on this board like Penny and Wendy. I think special tribute should be paid to her this year in many ways. Put up photos of her when she won and her days as Miss Trinidad and Tobago . This year's Miss T& T World should be dedicated to her with a specail award named in her honour. I also expect to see an extensive and intimate interview of her on TV about all that she has achieved since winning in 1986 like her family, academic achievements, world travels, profession etc. She certainly deserves more recognition.

Peter Elias is not the franchise holder but if Mr. Lee did decide to do a close door selection process I would not complain. However, considering we heard nothing about any screenings or selection process I am going to say this is just a rumor. Truth be told Alyssa looks great. I guess we will have to wait until next year to find out what is taking place.

This seems just to be totally inaccurate as the young lady is modelling professionally so it is highly unlikely that she would stop modelling to get prepped for a beauty pageant. So I guess maybe in Feb. we might hear about the screenings for MUT&T2011.
