I'm liking June a whole lot. I think she will do well at miss universe. She reminds me of naomi campbell a bit. She's my pick so far, maybe i'll change my mind when i see the girls on stage on Nov. 8th !

This is really a good batch of girls to chose from. I will not look to much at their bodies right now. Remember the winner has almost a year to prepare for Miss Universe next year. You have to look for the girl that is the best. They will work on her body to world class standards. My favorites right now are June, La Toya Sarah and Shari to win.

I've been meaning to give a synopsis of my views regarding the 8 finalists. So here it goes:

June Lighbourne:
I really do like her. It is a little difficult to estimate how tall she is, but in some photos she looks a little stumpy. She has a very beautiful face and glowing skin. However, I see a little disproportion in her figure. Maybe it's just the photos but she looks a little big on the top and narrow on the lower half making her appear top heavy.
If she were to go to Miss Universe, honestly, the highest I could see her reaching is the top ten.

Shari Dumas:
From the first few photos I had seen of her, I would have sworn by her. But in all honesty, she is no longer my top pick. When I look at all the photos of her together, they are a little too inconsistent for me. No doubt she has a beautiful face but she looks much better in photos when she doesn't smile. That cannot work for me. I do like her figure which is totally fabulous and would do well in swimsuit (needs some work on the calves), skin and all the rest are flawless, it's just the animated/ smiling face that doesn't do it for me.
I could see her making the semifinals at Miss Universe, even top 10 but the top 5 seems like a far call for me.

LaToya Woods
Except for one photo I saw of her on USA Bubble Board, this girl has impressed me most out of all of them. Her photos capture a girlish innocence, a strong beautiful and confident woman and an edgy model all in one. She has edged out Shari for me. She has a flawless, inviting and warm face, with soft features that are characertistic of not just a beauty queen but those of a beauty queen for which you would go OOOH WOW! She has the IT and the X Factor. Her chest is a little flat but she has taken consistently superior photographs. It is evident that the camera loves her and every angle is great. I want to believe that she is extremely telegenic which means that on a live stage, she will command attention and wow the judges. I am in awe that how incredibly beautiful this woman is. For me, she embodies the essence of the modern beautiful Trinbagonian woman.
If she goes up for Miss Universe, she would sail right through to the finals. She will place for sure. She has the greatest potential to win. I can smell it. She would be a hit from day one and she has that instant likeability factor. MY PICK!

Danille Prime
I admit that I did not like her with the wig, which is why it is important to see more photos. But she seems to be one of the taller ones. I am not a fan of her skin and some of the contours of her skin, a bit of adipose around the cheeks and central area of the face. But other than that, her face has a sultriness about it, quite demure and understated. She does look quite seductive and engaging. Her photos are consistent. Her figure is fine, but overall, because she is not one of the prettiest ones, she would not be my pick.
If she is chosen, I think she can make the semi finals, but with Trump choosing 6 and the preliminary judges choosing 9, this one would be a gamble as I wouldn't bet on her to make the 9.

Shirlanna Singh
This chick took me by surprise. She looked quite ordinary with her hair down in the very first photo I saw. But when glammed up, the transformation was great and she looks quite regal but fierce. She looks a bit short. Nevertheless, against a host of generic latina bots, and so very few tanned women, she might very well stand out. She is no doubt a very beautiful girl. There is enough time to tone up that bod!
If she is selected, because, based on India's awful track record during this decade, she might very well be the Asian to watch out for. She would stand out among the Caribbean delegates. I can genuinely see her making the semis, and top 10 for sure.

Sarah Radday
When I saw her first photo, I wasn't impressed. I recognized that she was a beautiful girl, but her look didn't do it for me. Then she cleaned up very nicely for the swimsuit photos and I actually would have said she was my choice as she looked ravishingly beautiful, and very reminscent of the classic beauty queens of yesteryear. I felt that the combed back hair added finesse and sophistication to her already flawless face. Then I saw this picture and I felt she looked a bit harsh, at least when she smiled.
If she is picked, I genuinely could see her cracking the semis and top 10. She doesn't wow me over all the time, so I would say she certainly has the potential to be in the top 5 but I need more info to make a judgment.


Lisa See Tai
She was not one of my picks, but I admit that her follow up photos were better. She doesn't do it for me, sorry. She is no doubt pretty, but doesn't have that extra oomph. She looks like the type of beauty queen that Jamaica likes to crown, but who would do better at World than Universe.
If she is chosen, it is a hit or miss or me and that is too much of a gamble. I knew that Anya wasn't going to be selected and I get the very same vibe from this girl. She might be very articulate and intelligent, but facially, it's a no for me.

Nisa Benjamin
I genuinely like this girl. Her beauty is very understated but she is striking from the moment you look at her. She reminds me of an Angolan beauty that competed in the early 2000s. I do admit that just from the photos, she looks slightly lethargic but that is just my interpretation.
She isn't in my top 3 but I think with the right preparation she could stand a chance. I also get a keneisha vibe from her because there is something about her that draws you in and engages you. She could eitther do very well or miss the cut altogether at Miss Universe.

So, my choices are:
1. LaToya Woods
2. Shirlana Singh
3. Sarah Radday
4. Shari Dumas
5. June Lightbourne
6. Nisa Benjamin
7. Danille Prime
8. Lisa See Tai

Does anybody know who the girl walking behind LaToya Woods in these photos?

I looked at all the photos of LaToya and the only resemblance to Faye is that besides both being insanely gorgeous, they both have that rich sunkissed honey complexion. Faye had a strong AfroAsian look about her, although she is a conglemerate of more than those two ethnicities. The first thing that jumped out at you were her almond shaped Oriental eyes. LaToya, on the other hands, shouts "Creole" as in the mix of Afro and European features. She has very very refined features but she is more akin to Penny Commissiong than to Faye in my eyes. Nevertheless, both are extremely representative of any of the many mixtures in Trinidad, resulting from our rich comsmopolitan identity. We can't escape it.

Having a girl with a new look might be refreshing but the underlying aim should be to pick the girl has the greatest potential to bring home the crown. And for me, that girl is LaToya.

Other side of the Atlantic I totally agree with you and your synopsis of the girls. LaToya is my choice as well to win with Shari just behind. I also saw the pic of LaToya on the American Message Board and she looked stunning!!!!! Her pic on Facebook is exceptional as well.

She has the face and body that can command attention and I love the dimples!!!!!! She has legs for days and as I said that face is flawless. The fact that if crowned she will have more than5 months to prepare the possibilities r endless!!!

I am very excited to c who the new rep is and excited to c the team work their magic on them.

Oh hell, La Toya has to win. Being abroad, I wasn't aware that she entered the Synergy thingy, so it is encouraging to know that she has modelling experience behind her. From all her photos, she looks like the type that will leave people drooling and that's the reaction you want to elicit. Again, my observations are solely based on still shots and I stand ready to be corrected should she fall short on intelligence, articulation and eloquence.

Ok, after viewing the FACE pics and paying attention to the swimsuit shots, I think the most ready right now for MU are:

SARAH RADDAY, LA TOYA WOODS & DANILLE PRIME.

Unless these other girls have some extreme makeover by the time the pageant comes around, I don't think anyone else deserves the crown. TnT needs to get serious and send a WOW! girl...its about we're called again...

FACE, HEIGHT, BODY, PERSONALITY (in that order based on Miss Universe's current standards)

I was reading the newspapers and i saw that they were going to have a presentation show next week and only 7 would be chosen to go through to the final show in november. i think all should compete. And jenna a a nice girl but i could never see her making top 15 at miss universe, some how i just dont. If they still choose to have only seven to compete in miss t&t please leave jenna out and give someone else a chance.

I personally like the way they are doing it. The presentation show helps them see who the best are before making their final decision. I think they are doing it the way it should be done. Rather than have a one night competition where the best girls are so often left out, they are trying to see who has what it takes to shine at Miss Universe.

I also dont think Jenna Marie Andre is good for Miss Universe. She just dont seem to have what is required to make even a top 15 there. I was surprised she entered again. She is also not the most articulate girl. I agree, there are other girls there way way better than her.

My top 8 girls are...

Chenelle Maloney
June Lightbourne
Shari Dumas
Krista Ali
Danille Prime
Tizziana Persad
Sarah Radday
La Toya Woods

[> [> Subject: I am sure that part of the reason Jenna decided to enter was because she was encouraged to do so by Adrian Raymond or Calvin French. She is modelesque but perhaps a little too edgy and raw for me. Also, she isn't the sharpest tool in the shed and it is manifested in her inability to articulate herself in an intelligent and eloquent manner, but don't count her out.

Nevertheless, while I have not seen all the girls next to each other to compare heights, my preliminary choices are:

1. Shari Dumas(she will have a universal appeal and is exotic and stunning, she also has a flawless complexion and to-die-for facial bone structure. She is also very very modelesque as well as photogenic)

2. Tizziana Persad(she also has a universal appeal to her look and kinda gives me the Arlene Peterkin vibe, I think she is a natural stunner with a lot of sex appeal, a true babe, and the type Miss Universe likes) It's a toss up between Shari and Tizziana for me.

3. La Toya Woods(she could pass for Shari's twin, but Shari beats her. I cannot put her second though)

4. Keisha Charles

5. June Lightbourne

6. Chenelle Maloney

7. Krista Ali

Really good list other side of the atlantic. You know you have a good eye for beauty. I agree with you. Jenna is not at all suited for Miss Universe. I just look at the batch of girls and I see so many who can do far better than she can on the Miss Universe stage. I have made my list of girls and this time I have them in order of preference. Note: We still have yet to see the other two girls from Tobago. So, my list could change depending...Here it is....

1. Shari Dumas or Chenelle Maloney for the crown

2. La Toya Woods

3. June Lightbourne

4. Tizziana Persad

5. Krista Ali

6. Keisha Charles

7. Danille Prime

I have to agree with you guys here. This is a great crop of girls!

Chenelle captures the essence of a Caribbean beauty! Look how flawless she is in her photos! She is just simply gorgeous. I have been supporting La Toya Woods since her Synergy Supermodel days!

I also agree with you on the Jenna issue. If you can recall, she did not make the first cut in China in 2005! What, she thinks that having had a boob job,she is now a better candidate for the top 5? Please! Remember the pagent's credo is "Beauty with a purpose". There are other girls with the required package of brains AND beauty, who are quite capable of doing a fine job. Let them have a fair chance, man.

Some of the top 8 were a surprise - no Tizziane or Jenna. I was surpurised to c June up there. Her body WAS NOT up to snuff in my estimations. But we have a good group!

Ok the outcome of the miss uni. pgnt was 100x better than ms world...saw some beauty queens in there, with a few exceptions of a couple girls ...needless 2 say, i still hav gr8 doubts in Ashanna Arthur our rep 4 Ms world...i cnt get over the fact that we as a Nation are sending her...That Crown is on the wrong head and some1 needs to take it off her, its not gnna happen for us with it on her head...Chenelle Malooney, has a HIGHER CHANCE of any of these girls 2 win any major title PERIOD!...STILL Believe Ashanna should step down and pass over da crown..Over & Out!

I c that nobody missed me since everyone mentioned every other original poster except me. Don't worry I won't take it personally.

On to the Miss Universe hopefuls we have a great batch to choose from. I love the look of Keisha, Chenelle, Shari snd Tizziane. I actually know Jenna because she has been seen a lot on the party scene here in NYC but as nice as she is I don't c her as Miss Universe.

I am so happy that Peter is back in some capacity they need him and his expertise. I took a sabbatical after he gave up the franchise because I thought it was the end of Miss TnT Universe as we know it. Thank God he is back and the team that has taken over seems very capable of greatness.

As for the Miss World rep as the ole people say 'if u don't have anything good to say don't say anything at all' so I will keep my comments to myself.

So good to see you C. Everyone is so happy that we have this fantastic team as the Miss Universe franchise holders. We are so glad to see Peter Elias back. He is truly one of the best at what he does. Trinidad and Tobago will be back strong at Miss Universe next year. I agree with you we have such a strong batch of girls to chose from. Its so difficult to chose just one. From the pictures I have seen so far. I think the crown should be between Chenelle Maloney, Shari Dumas, La Toya Woods, June Lightbourne, Tizziana Persad or Keisha Charles. One of these ladies should be the new Miss Trinidad and Tobago.

The two Tobago delegates are nice but they are not as good as most of the girls we already saw.

Now I to ask the question, Where are all the others??. Trini77, PB, mAximus and the rest?. Come on back guys!!!!.

[> Subject: My take is: the first and perhaps indispensable prerequisite is SHE MUST BE BEAUTIFUL according to international standards, aka have universal appeal. Then ideally she should be TALL and MODELESQUE and have a KILLER CATWALK, then when she opens her mouth, she should speak CONFIDENTLY and INTELLIGENTLY...

HUNGER- Please choose someone who is hungry for the crown and will work like Keneisha Thom to bring it home. FOr me, half of the battle is won there!

BEAUTY- hair, makeup, dentition, skin....must be IMPECCABLE but unfortunately are not always consistently top notch!This is a beauty competition and there will be no shortage of drop dead gorgeous beauties. Our Trini chicks have always stood out against the rest, from the darkest most flawless ebonies in Wendy and Kenisha, to the mocha divas like Magdalene to our butter scotches like Penny, Faye and Margot, even our creamies like Arlene.

FASHION- a KILLER WARDROBE is A MUST! T&T has never failed to impress in this category!

EVENING GOWN- I think you need to strategize. PLEASE DO NOT COMPROMISE A STUNNING DRESS THAT MEETS INTERNATIONAL FASHION STANDARDS FOR A SUB-PAR LOCALLY DESIGNED DRESS. It is not about the designer, it is about a dress that ensure that a girl advances as far as possible.

SWIMSUIT- I have never questioned the capabilities of the local team to work with the girls and deliver the package!

I think the above is the winning formula! Looking forward. I would like to see full body and close up of face photos and perhaps a video to adjudicate on telegenics.

I know alot of us are still disappointed with the Miss World Trinidad and Tobago pick. But, we can all be happy that we have a group of people who seems to know what they are doing in the Miss Trinidad and Tobago Universe pageant. The screening is on the 18th of October and the finals is scheduled for the 9th of November. I can not wait to see the gorgeous beauties.

Maybe the franchise holder for the Miss World Trinidad and Tobago learn from this and have the pageant earlier so the delegate will have more time to prepare for the international arena. And also adverties the screening more and hopefully next time pickt the most beautiful girls.

After seeing the pics, Sunita should have been the one to walk away with the title. She's got international appeal.

I don't know what I rathered, not seeing the pagaent or seing it. Definitely a major disappointment for me. I know I could never be best judge on beauty but would the cameras in South Africa pick up that Ashanna is intelligent from face value? Would the cameras really give her the attention she deserves? Sad to say we are going to get a rude awakening over there. Hope we actually win a fast track event. Even that I ain't too sure about. I'm still confused. Can someone send me a ray of hope?

[> Subject: Miles I wish I could send you that ray of hope that you desperately seek...but I can't. I am struggling to be patriotic and objective at the same time. Some may say that beauty is subjective, but there are objective standards. I wish the girl all the best but in the end it is a beauty pageant and she falls short, especially in Miss World where the winners are undoubtedly stunners. Can she attain the success of Agbani Darego Nigeria 2001 or be the stellar beauty from France Véronique Caloc 1998 or even Micaela Reis Angola 2007? Methinks not!

Sad to say but I think this girl is not going to do much at Miss World. I dont know what makes this new franchise holder think that Miss World is a Miss Intelligence Pageant. Look at last years Miss World. She could not even talk properly, yet she won the title. Why, because she was beautiful. This guy is going to get a rude awakening as you said Miles. Trinidad and Tobago has been doing so good then to have this new guy take over and ruining it. Most of the girls in the pageant this year was no where close to being beauty queens. There was only a couple of them who had any chance. The best was the first runner up Chenelle Maloney. She should of won it. I am sure she would of definitely been noticed and do Trinidad and Tobago proud again. Even some of the girls who was not in the top three were far better. Like Sunita Dairam and Nadiege Honore. The judges messed up big time and so did the franchise holder. When they screen girls next time beauty should always be first. Ashanna is going to get lost in the crowd at Miss World. I almost rather not being represented if this is the type of girls this new franchise holder is going to send. He seems to not have a clue what is required to win a "BEAUTY" pageant. This is like taking 100 steps back from Valene and Gabrielle. What a total waste of money and time with this girl.

Just an observation I have made watching the Miss Trinidad and Tobago pageant. I dont seem to see the racial diversity with the contestants. How come in a country where over 43 percent of the population is of Indian decent. There were only one Indian girl in the entire competition.This has been the pattern for some time now. There was at the least seven girls of African decent two mixed race girls and one caucasian girl. I hope it is a matter of the girls being chosen are the best who came out. But, I find it hard to believe. Because most of the girls this year are no where close to beauty queen material. I know that there are many beautiful Indian and mix race girls in Trinidad and Tobago. How come we dont see more of them in Miss Trinidad and Tobago. Valene Maharaj was the last Miss Trinidad and Tobago of Indian decent and even in her year, I think she and one other girl was the only two Indian girls in the competition. I know alot of Indian girls are interested in representing their country. I hope alot more of them get chosen to be in Miss Trinidad and Tobago next year.

Alot of them are very educated and beautiful. I know they will do extremely well. I hope it is not a matter of favoritism when it comes to chosing girls. But, a matter of the best of the best gets picked. No matter what race they may belong to.

[> Subject: I think you answered your own question in the end. From my understanding, pageants are not prioritized among the general Indo-Trinidadian population. Just the other day I was having a discussion with my mom about where the Indians are making a mark for themselves in Trinidad...there seems to be a trend, moreso now than before, that people who are focussed on education and professional formation do not delve into pageantry. There seems to be a negative correlation or inverse relationship. Yes, pageants are deemed frivolous. Indo-Trinidadians are also still very conservative, while many are quite modern and wear current fashions, there is still the pressure from their community to wear conservative clothes. One Indian from India noted that many of the 21st century Indians in Trinidad still hold on to 19th century Indian values...not a bad thing. And finally, while I prefer to ignore it, there is the historical animosity between Afros and Indos.

I think the fact that there is a lack of an Indian presence is a symptom of a deeper socio-cultural phenomenon. Indians generally keep away from Afro-centric events, again, it is rooted in history. But having studied history, I can say that the world over, the Indian diaspora is more concerned with making their mark in all things academic

Is this the best this new franchise holder could do?. I am sorry but this girl just dont have it. She is not pageant beauty at all. This franchise holder have to remember that at the end of the day its a beauty pageant and not a Miss Intelligence world pageant. Miss World's theme is beauty with a purpose. This girl dont have the beauty of a Miss World. The franchise holder needs to learn how to chose beautiful girls. He needs to look at past Miss Trinidad and Tobago's who have reached far and done well and try to find girls as good as they were or better. They are smart and also very beautiful. Just look at Gabrielle Walcott. What a shame.

Please come back Peter Elias.

who the judges,
or the ugly girls that enter every year. i was hoping she did not win but the pickings was very slim. They need a larger pool of girls to choose from maybe they need to give applicants a longer time for registration,or select girls from every borough then the winners compete for the title something like miss usa.I now know how the people of Turks & Caicos felt

Miss World gets new franchise holder


Michael Raghunanan
...new local franchise holder of Miss World
The search for Gabrielle Walcott’s successor to represent T&T at the Miss World pageant in South Africa in December has started. The new franchise holder of the competition is Michael Raghunanan, owner of Michael’s Vogue Designs, who took over from fashion designer and former franchise holder of both Miss Universe and Miss World, Peter Elias.

Raghunanan said he planned to stage a local contest to select Miss World T&T on September 26. With Miss Universe scheduled to take place in The Bahamas on August 23, a search of the Web site, www.missuniverse.com confirms that T&T would not be represented this year. Raghunanan said he was up to the challenge. He has already started work, putting together a committee to oversee the selection process and has sent letters requesting sponsorship from several corporate companies and state bodies such as the Tourism Development Company, the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Tourism. Raghunanan said Elias, the former national director of the competition, called him and offered congratulations and words of advice and encouragement.

“I felt humbled that this great man, who has worked so tirelessly to promote the beauty of our islands to the rest of the world, could take the time to offer his kind words and sentiments,” Raghunanan said. He said, too, he was moved to accept the challenge after hearing Minister of Community Development, Culture and Gender Affairs, Marlene McDonald’s address in Parliament that her ministry would offer 80 per cent of the cost of sending a delegate to Miss Universe and Miss World. Raghunanan said, “I sense that the minister is a woman of integrity and honour so I am expecting her full support.” Raghunanan echoed McDonald’s challenge and hoped that support from the business community would be forthcoming.

He said, “If I have to beg or borrow and write letters to hundreds of companies, I am prepared to do just that. This is an investment in nation-building and in the future of our youth.” He added, “It is also an unprecedented opportunity to promote the growth of the tourism sector in T&T, especially following the vicious attack on two vacationing nationals from the UK, in Tobago over the weekend.”

Elias responds
Elias said yesterday he wished Raghunanan well.
He said, “I really wish him the best. I know that he will give his best. People overlook that they are people’s daughters that we work with and as a result this is a precious commodity. I have complete faith that Michael will be responsible. I only hope he is able to get the required support to do an effective job

Potential delegates
Interested contestants for Miss World T&T:
• Must be 17 on or before January 1, 2009 and must not have attained the age of 24 on or before January 31, 2009.
• Should be height and weight proportionate.
• Should be single and must not have had any children or have been pregnant prior to entering the competition and should not become pregnant during the term of her reign (if selected).
• Must have a valid T&T passport which must not expire before December 2010.
• Must be a citizen either by birth or through naturalisation.
• Must be a natural female. By natural it is understood that only persons who were born female are eligible to enter.
• Must be physically fit and athletic.
n Should possess a talent—singing, dancing or playing an instrument.
• Must speak English as a first language (although bilingual persons are encouraged to compete).
• Should be able to travel to South Africa if selected as the representative for T&T.
Screening takes place at the end of August and the winner would be selected at the local contest on September 26.

Seeing all the countries arriving in the Bahamas for Miss Universe with no Miss Trinidad and Tobago is a very sad time. Delegates holding their national flag in pride as they arrive is such a wonderful thing to observe. T&T should of been one of the top countries there this year. Especially with the competition right in the caribbean. Miss T&T would of been a huge favorite to win again. sadly, no one seems to see the great oppertunity that these girls have to promote their country and represent it with pride and passion.

Miss World is right around the corner later this year. Are we not going to be represented at that pageant to?. I hope there is a Miss Trinidad and Tobago at Miss World. T&T has been doing so good not to be a part of the pageant this year. Lets hope for at least a Miss T&T at Miss World later this year.
Since we are not going to be at Miss Universe

Designer gets Miss TT/World franchise
By MELISSA DASSRATH Wednesday, August 5 2009

FASHION designer Michael Raghunanan is the new holder of the Miss TT/World beauty pageant franchise. Raghunanan who operates Michael’s Vogue Designs is a member of the Fashion Entrepreneurs of Trinidad and Tobago (FETT) group and his designs were featured at the 2009 TT Fashion Week and the 2009 Caribbean Fashion Week.

Speaking on the franchise, Raghunanan said, “This is not a money-making venture. If anything, it comes down to pulling out of my own pocket at times. But I’m doing this for the love of my country.”

In the coming months, Raghunanan plans to stage a national beauty pageant to select a delegate for the Miss World pageant which will be held in December in Johannesburgh, South Africa. The Miss TT World Pageant has suffered from inconsistent and inadequate funding in recent years. A lack of Government support and corporate sponsorship has resulted in dwindling interest in the pageant. Raghunanan estimates that approximately $150,000 will cover the cost of preparing and styling a delegate.

Raghunanan said he was motivated by the Culture Minister’s vow to cover 80 percent of the cost to send a delegate to the Miss World pageant. “I sense that the Minister is a woman of integrity and honour so I am expecting her full support,” he said.

And while Raghunanan is now the Miss TT/World franchise holder, the Miss TT/Universe franchise remains in abeyance after well-known style guru Peter Elias decided to relinquish both the Miss World and Universe franchises.

Walcott: It’s too late for Miss Universe
By Joan Rampersad Wednesday, July 15 2009

click on pic to zoom inGabrielle Walcott placed third in the Miss World 2008 competition....If asked to Gabrielle Walcott will not represent Trinidad and Tobago (TT) in the Miss Universe 2009 pageant which takes place in the Bahamas next month.

There is just not enough time for either her or any other woman to prepare for the internationally popular beauty competition, said Walcott, the third-placed winner in the Miss World 2008 pageant.

“I understand girls have to be there in the Bahamas in the next two weeks. I would never do myself or our country that injustice or disservice. How could I be prepared in just two weeks?” Walcott told Newsday.

Several broadcast media reports over the past two days claimed Walcott was expected to be approached by the Government to represent this country at the pageant. TT has had two winners at Miss Universe, Janelle Penny Commissiong in 1977 and Wendy Fitzwilliam in 1998, along with a string of semifinalists in recent years. Giselle La Ronde won Miss World in 2006, and again, this country has had successful runner-ups in this competition.

In 2008, Anya Ayoung-Chee represented the country in the Miss Universe in Vietnam, while Walcott went to South Africa for the Miss World competition. Ayong-Chee did not place among the semifinalists but Walcott placed third, and even won the Queen of the Caribbean prize.

Walcott denied the media reports and said no one from the Government had approached her to be a possible delegate to send to Bahamas. Even so, Walcott said it would be too late for her to get ready to compete.

“I think it’s just too late to be properly prepared. Our girls have done well at that competition before and I don’t want to be one to spoil that record.”

Former pageant trainer Allyson Brown, who has previously helped past delegates to both beauty competitions, was also in the dark about Walcott or any other woman being selected for Bahamas.

“I did not hear anything. I have absolutely no information whatever on that,” said Brown.

According to Miss Universe Inc, 86 countries have already confirmed their attendance with this country listed as a withdrawal along with Antigua & Barbuda and Sri Lanka.

That this country would be without a delegate at Miss Universe and possibly Miss World 2009, stemmed from the previous struggles of former franchise holder Peter Elias to obtain consistent support from the Government and the business community. In 2007, TT did not take part in Miss Universe because of lack of funding, and afterward Government stepped in and supported Valene Maharaj’s entry to Miss World 2007 where she placed third.

Elias could not be reached for comment yesterday. However, after Walcott’s success at Miss World last year, Elias stated that he was giving up the franchise for both competitions.

Other caribbean countries are taking advantage of the fact that the Miss Universe pageant is being held in the caribbean this year. They all know they have a good chance of doing well or some of them placing for the firs time or the first time in many years. Trinidad and Tobago is probably the only caribbean country to apart from Puerto Rico and to a lesser extent Dominican Republic to have done extremely well at Miss Universe and Miss World. If T&T is not represented it will be a major blow for future representation. How sad to see countries who do not have to resources that T&T has are able to send someone to represent their country year after year. T&T with all its riches should be showcased every year at the pageants.

How can the government not want to consistantly sponsor these great ambassadors of their country?. I could understand wanting the private sector to help but if they are unwilling to help then I do believe the government should step up and do what is necessary to send a representitive to Miss Universe and Miss World.

I truly admire the franchise holder before Peter Elias. Kim S. always seem to be able to send someone to represent the country for many years up until her death.

I was hoping that Peter Elias would of held on to the franchises. I am sure that he could of find some sort of sponsorship. Just like Kim S. did it I believe he could of done it to. He may not be able to do all the training of the delegates he would like but at the least T&T would be repsented each year. Kim S. may not have been able to train the girls as Peter have done for the past five years or so. But, she did do her best and managed to place at Miss Universe many times and even won the Miss Universe title as well. I can undrstand Peter wanting the government to do their part. But, it is clear that the government has no interest in the promotion of T&T in such a manner. They will be quick to praise the delegate when she has done well but slow to offer assistance to help achieve success. That is a sad reality. Its a fact that government has never done anything consistantly to help these ladies reach the successes they have had.

It is shameful to that no one step in to take over the francise after Peter gaved it up. So many companies etc. can do this, yet we have not had anyone willing to.

To Peter Elias, if you are reading this. Please consider taking up the franchise again. You seem to be the only person with real passion to promote T&T in such a manner. Take adavantage of this oppetunity of the Miss Universe pageant being in the caribbean again. I am sure the Miss Universe org. wanted Trinidad and Tobago to be there. Try to hold on to at least one of the franchises, either Miss World or Miss Universe. There are many people who support you and are very grateful for what you have done for the country. Let Miss T&T shine on the international stage again.

Valene is absolutely beautiful she can be hand picked to go to the bahamas now. She dont need alot of preparation.She can bring home the crown for T&T again. Gabrielle Walcott would of been another great contender but she is not interested in going this year. She stated she did not have enough time to be prepared enough. Although I personally dont think she needs alot of training.

It seems that T&T will not be represented at Miss Universe after all. With speculations that Gabrielle Walcott might be sent or asked to go to Miss Universe. That has proven not to be true. This is indeed a very sad day for pageantry in Trinidad and Tobago. It is so embarassing that the T&T Government can not see the potential that these beautiful ladies have to promote T&T to the world.

No one was even approached or there was not a hint to anyone to represent the country in the Bahamas this year. Gabrielle walcott said that even if she was ask now it will be to late for her to properly be prepared to compete at Miss Universe. She noted that T&T has had tremendous success at Miss Universe and dont want to spoil T&T's record for not being ready enough.

I persoanlly think that Gabby would still do great if she was asked to go with just under three weeks until the start of the competition. But, I can understand her position. She does not want to feel rushed and by that can ruin her chances.

Its is really sad that there will not be a Miss T&T at Miss Universe. My hope is that T&T will have a representative at Miss World so we can continue the success at that pageant to.

I still believe that there are girls who can be chosen now and be sent to Miss Universe with just a few weeks to go and do very well. I remember Maggie walcott being chosen in a very short space of time yet still did very good at Miss Universe. There are countries still chosing their representitives right now, so there may still be time for T&T to have a good representitve sent. T&T girls know how to shine and be noticed.

Even if we dont see a Miss T&T at Miss Universe this year. Lets hope that this will be the last time that there is a struggle to send someone to the international stage just because of lack of financing. T&T is way to rich of a country to not be represented each year.

It is very disappointing that Trinidad and Tobago may not be represented this year at Miss Universe or even Miss World. For such a rich country there should not be any problems with sending someone to represent Trinidad and Tobago. It is a shame that T&T has done so well for so long to not be represented this year.It seems as though other countries hold Miss T&T's in higher esteem sometimes than some people in T&T or rather the government. Angola was recently welcoming former Miss Universe Wendy Fitzwilliam to their country. Eleven years after she won Miss universe she is still making T&T proud. It is truly a disappointment that the T&T government or any of the big companies that can sponsor a Miss T&T, have not done so consistantly. Many countries who do not have the resources that T&T has have sent delegates to the international stage every year. A lot of other countries have not reached any where close to T&T's success on the world stage yet always seems to be able to send someone to represent their country each year.

There is still enough time to chose someone to go to Miss Universe this year and Miss World. I hope that by the time Miss Universe starts we will see Miss Trinidad and Tobago's name up there with the list of contestants.

The Miss Universe Pageant is also being held in the caribbean this year. This could be T&T's year to win again. Come on T&T send someone to represent the country. These ladies have continued to make thier country proud and promote it in a positive way even beyond their reign.

Check out the Miss Bahamas Universe website. There are some amazing girls who are competing for the chance of placing at the top 15 at Miss Universe in August:

http://www.missbahamas.org/.

My favorites are Camille Kenny, Amanda Applewood, Jade Strachan, Kiara Sherman, Alexandra Deal, and Sharie Delva.

It is really sad that Trinidad & Tobago will not be represented this year at Miss Universe. With the pageant being held in the Caribbean, TnT would have had a great chance to bring the Miss Universe crown back to Trinidad, especially considering that it is 10 years this year since Trinidad last hosted the Miss Universe Pageant. It would be awesome to have either Valene M. or Gabrielle W. represent TnT. I am sure that either one of them could win the title.

...the more they open their mouths the more petty and stupid they appear. All this shi% about TT$300,000 to send a "TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO" to the world stage being too excessive, and then they turn around and spend over 300 million of we (taxpapers') money without thinking twice just so Manning could feel better about himself on paper-because that was all I see this summit being about.

for a summit we still eh see no benefit from, I would think that someone from Tidco would at least make an effort to send Gabrielle to Miss Universe 2009. As usual though, I am expecting them to do nothing but talk.

To think that the Miss Universe Pageant will be held in the Caribbean this year and Trinidad and Tobago may not be represented is very shameful. Trinidad and Tobago is such a rich country. There should not be a problem to send a delegate to both Miss Universe and Miss World. It seems as though some people like to take the glory when a representitive from T&T does well but are unwilling to contribute to helping these individuals reach to the point where they are world class.

I hope to see a Miss T&T at both Miss Universe and Miss World this year. There are so many girls who can do great if given the chance.

Even if there is not enough time to have a local pageant to select someone. There are girls who dont need alot of training that could be sent and easily win either international pageants. Gabrielle Walcott is a great example. If she is sent she can easily win Miss Universe.

Well with no MT&T I guess we all have lost interest in MU and MW but we can't let the forum get stagnant.

Here are my early picks for MU2009:
Australia
Puerto Rico
USA (she is just a plane pretty american girl, nothing noteworthy but she is MUSA so she is guaranteed a top 10 placement at the least)
Czech Republic
France
Ukraine
Switzerland

Others who I need to see more of: Mexico, Columbia, Angola, South Africa

There is still enough time to send a delegate to the Miss Universe pageant this year. This could be a great oppertunity again for T&T to win the Miss Universe title. I think if T&T dont send a delegate this year they will be missing out on a very good chance of winning the third crown.

Why has there not been a new franchise holder yet?. Is PE&A still the franchise holders?. I was hoping that PE&A hold on to one of the local franchises. Either Miss Universe or Miss World. Maybe he should re-consider his decision and continue with the great work he has done, for the people who support him and the country.

This is will be really disappointing again if there is no delegate. T&T has done so well for many years. T&T is a rich enough country to send delegates every year. There should never be a problem to send a delegate because of financial problems.

To PE&A if you are reading this. Please continue with your good work and re-consider your decision and try to send a delegate to Miss Universe this year.

Kesha Quash is the most friendly, elegant delegate we have ever had in this country and when given the chance if she accept, then we would have another MU/MW until that time i say good luck to all the lady's. To the guy that has a problem with Kesha, a little advice, get over yourself. I attend SBCS and whenever i see KESHA QUASH i know she's going to be very successful in whatever she does. You need to get a life and stop bad mouthing others.

Since Peter & Co don't have to worry with the Miss T&T franchise anymore, a great way for him to make some money is to start offering his training services to other countries that haven't had much success in the pageant circuit. Other nations that ironically, have much less money than T&T, are able to send delegates but don't always do well due to lack of proper training. Peter & Co can offer their fine training and prepping services to other nations or franchises for a "good" price plus he already has a proven successful track record with Miss T&T. I don't think Miss T&T will ever be this good again now that he is not in charge.

I am waiting with bated breath for what the minister has to say. Congratulations to the minister for single handedly killing PE&A. I know Peter Elias is a serious man, so when he says it is over it over! That being said, we know Pete, Alyson, Adrian and Bobby have a passion for this thing. I believe that whoever ends up with the franchises, this group will be glad to assist, BUT we have to remember they will not be able to do so much anymore because you don't want to overstep your boundaries. I hope TIDCO takes over the franchise though.

Cheers as Miss TT returns home
Tuesday, December 16 2008

GABRIELLE WALCOTT, second runner-up in the Miss World Pageant, got a rousing VIP welcome at Piarco International Airport when she returned home from South Africa last night.

Gabrielle was originally scheduled to return home tomorrow night but decided to return home earlier because she is anxious to be with her father, Derek Walcott, one of her most ardent supporters. In fact, she quoted her father in answer to a question during the final round if the competition on Saturday.

Her father, a Roman Catholic deacon, was among those eagerly awaiting the chance to greet the world-class beauty as she stepped off her flight. Gabrielle mother and grandmother, who were with her in South Africa, are due to arrive home via New York later today. Her chaperone, Allyson Brown, who stopped off in London, arrives tomorrow evening.

Last night Gabrielle was wined and dined during a reception at the airport’s VIP Lounge hosted by the Ministry of Community Development, Culture and Gender Affairs. The Minister, Marlene McDonald, Parliamentary Secretary Junia Regrello and other government officials were part of the delegation on hand to welcome her home.

Also on hand was Peter Elias, franchaise holder for the pageant.

“It is a fantastic feeling to be part of something like this that brings national pride,” he remarked just before Gabrielle’s flight touched down at Piarco.
******************************************************************************

I am pretty much resigned to the fact that we will not be attending MU09. It will be interesting to see what the government comes up with in January-as pgwizz said I don't think they care. As Peter said, Gabrielle is probably our last MT&T at either MU or MW for a very long time to come. This government is hopeless. They are doing nothing to make a dent in crime, the police need policing themselves and they don't care about promoting brand Trinidad and Tobago internationally, only dining foreign dignitaries on public money so they can get personal praise from these visitors to prop up their all mighty egos.

This is the worst government in the history of T&T in my opinion. What a mess they are.

...Barbados, Puerto Rico and Trinidad and Tobago are the only Caribbean entrants to make it to the semis. I am surprised that Bahamas did not make the cut. I guess DR's "deer in the headlights" look did not go over well with the judges. As I said, if she was a couple years more older maybe she could have gotten over that "lost" look. I still think she is beautiful though.

..Angola (2nd) and India was 3rd. O.K. As I said before Russia and Mexico are the 2 to beat but now I officially think that the heavy favorite is Russia.

After this fast track, here is what I think (again-I know):
QOAfrica -South Africa (expect Angola to make the top 15 though)
Queen of Asia -India (expect Lebanon and Philippines [people's choice] to make the semis)
Queen of Europe-Russia/Spain (I don't see Ukraine winning this regional title at all; I still think Spain is boring but she had alot of time to prepare for interviews after her crowning)
Queen of Caribbean-T&T/PR (forget everyone else; Bahamas could place but I am not too sure anymore)
Queen of the Americas-Venezuela or Mexico (no one else could win the regional title; something tells me Venezuela will pull a surprise regional win.)


Pray Gabby nails the interview! I know Wilnela will want PR to get the regional title.

My take is for both Top Model and Beach Beauty height would be a factor. I mean even in swimsuit, not matter how amazing your body is, the taller girls will have that extra something....because their legs go on for miles.
Same for Top Model. Models dont even have to be pretty, just tall. But from not on its all about Interview and Presentation for her, so I believe she can make Top 5 like Valene.

I agree with you a bit on this smurfgyrl. I think in regards to these mini contest like the top model and beach beauty that height do play a part in chosing the winner and usually the taller girls come out on top. The reason is because they are just looking for that one thing in the girls and not the overall attributes of a Miss World. However, as I have once said that in chosing the overall winner of the Miss World crown, height dont really matter. Especially in Regards to Miss World.

I think generally, height is not a major issue in beauty pageants these days. Its more about the girl and who she is and what she represents. if she is short and has a good body and the charisma/right personality. She can win. I am so proud of Gabby and how well she has done so far. I know she will shine even more. I think she has a great chance at beauty with a purpose. She needs to nail her interview. I think thats where she will seperate herself from alot of the girls. Go Gabby

Gabby is continuing to be noticed and doing well. I am still sruprised that Puerto Rico made it once again. I just dont see Puerto Rico as a top contender. I think they are trying hard to put Puerto rico up there. Its going to be between Gabby and Puerto Rico for the Queen of the Caribbean title. Gabby needs to seal the deal with her interview and how she presents herself. I think she can do it. I also hope she does well in the Beauty with a Purpose fast track.

i would actually say SA deserves her spot. SHe has been looking much better, so yes I think she is one of the stronger one. Should she win? Dont think so, but she deserves to be up there yes. As for Bahamas, lol...you still believe dont you? thats great. But I`m still not seeing it, and I totally get why she hasnt been included in anything.

Anyway Gabby looks awesome here.

(CNN) -- The family of a 20-year-old Brazilian model who is fighting for her life after having her hands and feet amputated have urged her supporters around the world to keep praying for their daughter.


Brazilian model Mariana Bridi is in a serious condition in hospital after undergoing multiple amputations.

A blog created to provide updates on Mariana Bridi da Costa's condition says the model's stomach had to be removed during the last surgery due to internal bleeding.

"Continue praying for her. The doctors are doing everything that is humanly possible to save her, but only God can really save your (sic) life," says the most recent post by Renato Lindgren.

Da Costa's boyfriend, Thiago Simoes, told the G1 news Web site that Bridi fell ill on December 30 and was initially misdiagnosed with kidney stones.

When her condition worsened she returned to hospital where doctors determined she was suffering from a severe urinary tract infection.

By then, Bridi was also suffering from septicimea, a blood infection that limited the supply of oxygen to her extremities.

The condition forced doctors to amputate first her hands and then her feet.

Her father, Agnaldo da Costa, is said to have told Folha de S Paulo newspaper that "the concern is over her life."

The executive director of Miss World Brazil, Henrique Fontes, issued a call for blood donors.

According to the blogsite, Bridi has a rare negative blood type. By Tuesday, it said more than 100 people had donated blood in her name.

News of Bridi's condition spread quickly throughout Brazil and then worldwide.

A message on her Web site said that the volume of traffic to the Web site had caused it to crash, and that the site had received more than 15,000 hits in two days.

"The whole world, I repeat, the whole world is touched by the case of Mariana."

The message said they had received "emails of solidarity from all corners of the world: Australia, Ukraine, Czech Republic, France, Italy, USA, Russia, etc.. "

Bridi's family and friends have urged people to keep praying for Mariana's survival. "Mariana is (a) warrior and will win this battle."

In 2007 and 2008, Bridi came fourth in the quest to find Miss World Brazil, representing first the coastal town of Guarapari and then the town of Sergipe.

She also came fourth in the Face of the Universe competition held in South Africa in 2007. And last year she won the award for the best body in the Miss Bikini International competition held in China.

O.K. Does anyone have any inside info on if any bids for either the MW or MU franchises have been made? I am hoping Tidco takes over stewardship of both local franchises. It would be a shame to lose out such a valuable marketing tool.

To set the record straight the Peter Elias received 200,000 TT in support for Ms World Gabrielle Wakcott from the Ministry of Community Development, Culture and Gender Affairs.

Mr Elias received the first 100,000 earlier this year and stated later on that it was used to pay off last year's bills. Note that Sponsorship given by the Government has to be used in the year it was intended for not the previous year. After Mr Elias made an outcry of lack of sponsorship he recedived an addtitional 100,000.00.

It is not the responsibility of the Government to foot the entire bill when offering assistance and the Ministry has many other projects which offer assistance to individuals and communities as well as Scholarships all of which have a set budget of funds that can me distributed equitably.

Well you do raise an important (and good) point Ria. If they gave money for 08, then it should be used for 08, but obviously Ria, Peter probably had to use from his own funds to cover Valene`s preparation.
So the fact is if he does intend to continue, I think Peter cant depend on the Government for 100 percent of the funding, because they dont seem interested.

Trinidad Express

'LOOK AT THESE': Miss World Trinidad and Tobago Gabrielle Walcott displays the two awards she received on arrival at Piarco International Airport on Monday night, following her second runner-up placing in the Miss World competition on Saturday at Johannesburg, South Africa. Gabrielle copped the Beauty with a Purpose and Caribbean Queen titles. -Photo: JERMAINE CRUICKSHANK
Miss World Trinidad and Tobago, Gabrielle Walcott, plans on enjoying a "Trini style" Christmas in the upcoming weeks.

Walcott emerged second runner-up in the 2008 Miss World pageant last Saturday, behind Miss India, Parvathay Omanakuttan, the first runner-up, and Miss Russia, Kseniya Sukhinova, who won the Miss World crown.

She also won the Beauty with a Purpose award for her work with the Just Because Foundation at the international event, which took place in Johannesburg, South Africa.

"The Miss World Organisation may require me to tour and do charity work so I'm waiting to hear what's going on," Walcott explained to the Express yesterday.

"I have to be available when they need the help. In the meantime I'm just going to enjoy Christmas."

The local beauty, who returned home on Monday night, was very proud of her accomplishment.

"I'm extremely happy about my performance at the competition," she said.

"I went there and I did exactly what I hoped I could do for my country. I only wished that I could have finished giving my answer to the question I was asked."

Apart from being a finalist in the pageant and meeting many other girls, Walcott said she loved the safari experience in South Africa.

"I was particularly the most relaxed on the safari," she added.

"We stayed in a Pedi village, which is a native African tribe village, and we slept in their huts one night. Waking up on the crack of dawn on safari was amazing. The lions and the elephants made the experience even better."

As for queen maker Peter Elias's announcement that he would be bowing out of the pageant world, Walcott said it was a very sad moment for her.

Elias has been working in the local pageant industry for the last 15 years and has had many successes in the top 15 of both the Miss Universe and Miss World international pageants. He has also seen the crowning of Miss Universe 1998 Wendy Fitzwilliam.

Boy.. somehow i have the feeling russia was chosen weeks ago so no matter how she did russia would still have won. I dunno.

I Also think that the damn host must have known how strong gabby was and may have intentionally tried to break her onstage confidence. Look how much time india got.. lol

What a joke.

Crossing my fingers for a Miss Trinidad and Tobago Universe and World 2009!!!!

Congratulations to Gabby again on a job well done. The only question is what is the future for other Miss T&Ts?. Peter Elias has announced that this was his last pageant. This is truly a major disappointing thing to hear. He has done so well with the promotion of T&T and the grooming of each girl that has represented T&T.

While I understand his frustration. I hope that he somehow reconsiders resigning and continue the great job that he is doing. This will be a great lost for T&T if he is no longer a part of the franchise.

I dont understand why the government has not been continuously supportive financially to PE&A. That is a huge let down. The girls that are sent to these pageants are representing T&T and promoting it to the world in a positive light. One will think that the government will want to be a part of this continuously. PE&A should not have to be asking everytime for support. It should be readily available when they need it.

My hope is that Peter elias decides to stay on and do it for his country and the people that supports him and the girls that so proudly represents T&T on the world stage. I can not imagine what the future of Miss T&T will look like without the training and development expertise of PE&A. Then, the other question is. Will there even be another Miss Trinidad and Tobago?. If there is and there is another franchise holder, I hope they can do and continue the great job PE&A has done for so many years.

Peter, try and reconsider your decision to leave!

Unless the ministry gives in writing a legally binding agreement of financial support then I think Peter Elias and Associates should not reconsider. Will we be going to MU09? I am already concerned that if we even make it to MW09, we don't end up with another Heidi Rostant-phenomenal beuaty queen-horrible interview!

The time for begging is over. Peter Elias and Assoicates is a world-class organization-sorry I can't say the same for the T&T government-vision 20/20 is apparently nobody knows about our country outside of the Caribbean and Venezuela. I hope the ministry is totally embarrassed by PE&A's announcement (as they should rightfully be).

Dont you all get it? Hats off to PE&A but people dont understand the government does not care! We have too much oil, gas and other such natural resources...why spend time trying to market Trinidad and Tobago...this is to me what the government thinks and its stupid. Stupid because these resources are not renewable and we just shouldnt just depend on this...I dont know who or what is in charge of marketing Trinidad & Tobago, but whoever is surely needs to get a wake up call...This is good marketing going down the drain, like everything else in this once paradise. They do not care! I support PE&A 100% because this is the only way sometimes...Look at the Soca Warriors and many other TnT representatives...there is always some confusion in terms of gov't spending...yet they spend spend spend! I'm just so glad I dont have to live here anymore but VERY much more sad that I CAN'T!

Its just not part of our culture...why then should u depend on private citizens to do the job of the public sector...I.E. if these pageants are seen as a tool for marketing...WHO THEN IS RESPONSIBLE FOR MARKETING TRINIDAD & TOBAGO????

...this is very weird. I know I dreamt that Russia won and I said I thought Gabby was 2nd...I saw some confusion with Gabby and although I could not tell who the other 3 finalists were I remember thinking they had tans (i.e. not pale white as Russia). Very weird how things really played on the int'al stage.

I am so proud of Peter Elias, Adrian, Alyson, Bobby, Gabby and all the others who behind the scenes were a driving force for this win. Congrats to all. I am very sad to hear that Peter Elias and associates is no more but I totally support this very difficult decision. As I have said before, no one but the Gov't can hold on to either franchise more than 3 years. I hope TIDCO acquires the franchises but now they will have to pay Peter, Alyson and Adrian for their services because there is no group better in T&T to manage these franchises with the success that PE&A have had. Pete we behind yuh all de way with this one.

From the Newsday. And I dont blame Peter. Enough is enough

Trinidad and Tobago’s Gabrielle Walcott was yesterday crowned second runner-up at the Miss World 2008 contest at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa. But even while ecstatic in her victory, local franchise holder Peter Elias told Newsday that this was the end of the road for him.

He said, “What joy, what joy, what joy! This is one of the proudest moments in my life. When Gabby won the ‘Beauty with a Purpose’ contest and I saw the Trinidad and Tobago flag featured in her piece I felt so proud of TT. I’m proud of my team and Gabby’s effort. It was a long hard road but we succeeded. All is great but this is the end of the road for Peter Elias. I’m going to pass on the baton to someone else. I feel proud to have contributed to my country over the years and the feelings I felt today I want it to stay with me for the rest of my life.”

On the Miss World stage Walcott carried herself with grace and charm, looking absolutely regal as she was announced winner of the Beauty with a Purpose award.

Beauty With A Purpose is an event established in 2001 that is celebrated during the activities prior to the Miss World pageant. It awards the contestant with the most relevant and important charity project in her nation.

A short video was shown of Walcott’s work with the Just Because Foundation which supports children suffering with or recovering from cancer at the Paediatric Speciality Centre at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mt Hope.

Gabrielle’s work was highlighted and broadcast to two billion viewers in 187 countries. The world was shown that while working with those children Walcott decided to create more hospitable conditions for them since the facilities were not adequate. She helped raise about $100,000 in charity for the creation of a new children’s ward.

Bobby Ackbarali who is in South Africa with the TT team had his moment of pride when the gown that Walcott wore was a finalist for the World Designer Award.

Eventually beauties from 109 countries were whittled down to 15 semi-finalists with Trinidad and Tobago being the second country to be called after India and before Angola, Russia and South Africa.

Since 2005 the Beauty with a Purpose winner automatically makes the semi-finals but Miss Trinidad and Tobago World 2008 went a step further as she is the first and only winner to place in the top three.

Asked what makes her the best delegate for the Miss World title Walcott quoted from former South African president, Nelson Mandela stating, “A good mind and a good heart form a wonderful combination”, and from her own father who she said always told her “to whom much is given much is expected”. Walcott stated that she had that mind and heart and was prepared to give her all.

Then just before the announcing of the results Miss TT was asked about her South African experience leading up to yesterday’s final. She said, “I came here a girl, I will leave here a woman.”

Julia Morley, CEO of Miss World then named Miss Trinidad and Tobago second runner-up, India first runner-up and Russia’s Kseniya Sukhinova, Miss World 2008. The 21-year-old blue-eyed blonde and 58th Miss World beauty takes over from Zhang Zi Lin of China.

Culture Minister praises Gabrielle

Sunday, December 14 2008

Minister of Community Development, Culture and Gender Affairs, Marlene McDonald, yesterday conveyed the gratitude of the Government and people of Trinidad and Tobago to the Miss Trinidad and Tobago Miss World delegate Gabrielle Walcott, for being chosen the second runner-up in the 2008 Miss World Competition.

In a release issued yesterday McDonald noted Walcott’s achievement in copping the first place in the “Beauty with a purpose” segment of the competition, and also noted that Walcott’s gown was the second place winner in the “World Designer Award” for her evening gown.

She stated that the Government of Trinidad and Tobago remains conscious of the tremendous opportunity afforded by the Miss World pageant for the promotion of our country and the development of delegates like Miss Walcott as possible role models for our young women.

McDonald then said, “As in previous years therefore, the Government provided the financial support necessary to assist in enabling our delegate to not only prepare herself, but to compete and produce results such as that which we celebrate today and of which the country takes immeasurable pride.”

When Newsday spoke with franchise holder for the Miss World and Miss Universe competitions, Peter Elias earlier he said, “Peter Elias and Associates is grateful for whatever support we have received from the Government; however, support has been our greatest challenge of all.”

It is public knowledge that Elias has had to struggle to get promised support over the years.

This year was no different in that the first installment from the government was received one day before Miss Universe representative Anya Ayoung-Chee left for the competition.

By that time Elias had spent more than that first $100,000. preparing her for competition.

Other financial support came in August and late November, after Walcott already left for South Africa causing a strain on preparations.

Eventually the government gave approximately two-thirds of the budget necessary to have delegates properly represent this country.

Nevertheless McDonald said, “The Ministry again encourages the private sector and the national community in general, to partner with the franchise holders in respect of future competitions and, in particular, the provision of assistance to local charities selected by future delegates.”

The Ministry, on behalf of the Government took the opportunity to again applaud the efforts of Elias and Associates, for their continued efforts in preparing our delegates for the competitions.

Gabby, we thank you for representing T&T so well. You did excellent. A job well done!. I am extremely happy that Gabby won the Beauty with a Purpose award and was also one of the finalist for best designer award. What an accomplishment. Second runner up Miss World finals/Beauty with a Purpose Winner/Queen of the Caribbean Winner/ finalist in Top Model and Beach Beauty. You represented your country great.

I hope that the government step up and give the much needed financail support that PE&A needs. They need as much help as they can get. As mAXIMUS said, people know about T&T just because of the track records at both Miss Universe and Miss World.

Thank you Gabby!!!!!

Angola was a mess in her interview. she was speaking english but i had no clue what she was saying. plus I think the host felt like a dork for cutting Gabby off, so maybe he wanted to give her some extra time.

The eyes of the world were on one stage when Kseniya Sukhinovia from Russia was crowned Miss World in a glittering, star-studded ceremony at the Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg, the City of Gold.

The 2008 Miss World Festival, a record breaking year in the number of contestants taking part, has seen 109 beautiful and talented contestants spend an unforgettable month in South Africa. However, there could only be one winner and the applause rang out in the packed Convention Centre as Julia Morley, Chairman of the Miss World Organisation and of the international panel of judges, announced the winnerâ??s name.
Kseniya Sukhoinova smile spoke a thousand words to a worldwide TV audience of over 2 billion as she was crowned by last year`s Miss World, Zilin Zhang.

First runner-up was Trinidad and Tobago followed by India as second runner-up. The other two finalists were South Africa and Angola.

Yes i saw thaat and I thought WTF?
Hmm...typo..or something else?
To be honest I think Julia wanted Russia from day 1 so Gabby could have been perfect and it would have been the same result.
Great job, she was so calm and amazing. One of the best Tnt has ever sent. And to think shes one of the shortest girls.

The only continental queen that I think is safe is India since I don't see anyone strong from that region although China has a very beautiful face. I have to admit that I agree with Gabby and Miss Bahamas being the top 2 in the Caribbean region-I know everyone else on the bigger forums are mostly saying DR is the best but I just have some serious doubts about her after seeing some recent photos-yes she looked good-but I got no personality from them. I really don't like SA and Brazil and I would not miss either from the semis but realistically, SA is probably guaranteed a semi-finalist spot.
By far, the most competitive region this year is Europe-Ukraine, Spain and Russia seem to be the best-any one of them could be the continental queen.

Expect this list to change quite a bit when they update it in a few days-according to globalbeauties, they are not too certain how good some of the pre-arrival favorites look because they have not seem much of them them in candid photos so this would explain why some ladies seem out of place on the chart (if you get my meaning).

I dont see Miss Brazil being continental Queen, nor do I even think she deserve to make the cut, She seems like she mised the pageant she was to go to and that was Miss Earth. She likes to plant and that is great for her and for our world but I dont see a Miss World winner or Continental Queen.

...the only pageant that I personally think Brazil may have a chance of placing in based on merit is Miss Earth. I don't what what appeal people have for her.

Hey guys, I checked and pics are not available yet (I know it's been over 8 hours since delegates started arriving in relatively good numbers. I am happy to see that Gabby has today off to rest after that very long trip. Tomorrow they are supposed to go sight seeing and may film some segments for the final.

Beauty With A Purpose

Trinidad and Tobago has taken the last fast-tracked place into the Miss World Semi-Final after receiving the `Beauty With A Purpose` Award.

This year`s winner has just been announced during the 58th Miss World Final show and was presented with her trophy by Tumisho.

Trinidad and Tobago said: `I have worked very hard with a children`s specialist hospital unit to make a difference and I am so excited to be going through to the Semi-Final. But the real reward for me is the difference I have been able to make to lives of people in my home country.`

`Beauty With A Purpose` recognises the achievements of the contestants and their licence holders for their outstanding charity work in their local communities.
Julia Morley, Chairman, MWO, who initiated the `Beauty With A Purpose` Award specifically to recognise efforts of charity and good deeds, said: `The standard of work submitted by this year�s contestants was truly amazing.`
Trinidad and Tobago now joins the other four Fast Track Semi-Finalists Espinoza Marroquin Anagabriela, Mexico; Kseniya Sukhinova, Russia; Natalie Olivia Griffith, Barbados and Alexandra Helga Ivarsdottir from Iceland in tonight�s Final 15.

The excitement is growing as 10 more Semi-Final places are to be announced by the judges. Fifteen contestants will now go forward to contest tonight�s Miss World Semi-Final.

oh gosh dis black dress looking HOT! looks like a fusion pattern, african and asian. btw trini77 see what i was talking about the pushing up thing? look at pic one, she looks quite normal there compared to the pic of her with russia where she seems to be arching her back more. it could be the angle but the angle is not that different to me. btw...that slit on the silver dress rather high....lol. I'm curious to know what is the silver material on her arm below that silver bangle...any suggestions anyone?

haha check it the pic with gabby hugging the other black girl! gabby's arm looks quite strong and the black girl fingers are poised like she is about to drink tea....british style :D

That black dress is hot! It complemets her very well. The girl Gabby is hugging is Miss Barbados who is already a top 15 semifinialist. To be quite honest, that silver gown in my opinion is difficult to wear. I am sure she turned quite a number of heads with that number.

I think we see things differently-I don't think for one second that she is pushing the dress up-actually she is standing more erect and I think the gown was designed to "push the assets up"-I think this is a Bobby Ackberali creation (well if I believe Newsday anyways) and the boobs are supposed to be up-Remember Valene last year-for BB I saw very little boobs but for the finals "BOOBS GALORE" (forgive the expression) but it was very tastefully done.

Anyways, sticking with the boobs topic-am I the only one on here who remembers in the 1990s when the reigning MW would be on the judging panel for the MW finals and I totally remember thinking that I never realized how much boobs the winners had until then. I really don't think Mrs. Morley is afraid of the big boobs-only if they are too plastic looking or come with an attitude, then I think she is turned off. Zi Lin aside, MW does not really crown the pencil thin top model type. It's beauty is more Eurocentric. If boob jobs were a turnoff then we would not have had 5 Miss Worlds from Venezuela.

Anyways, I can't wait to hear what takes place for the finals (yes no video feed). If Gabby wins beauty with a purpose I personally think she is MW2008 if she interviews well onstage...but for now, I will predict that if she wins Beauty with a purpose then she is at least 2nd-runner up.

O.K. It would be interesting to see if we have a shock top 3-T&T as MW, SA as 1st-RU and Venezuela as 2nd-RU. Anyways, MW is totally unpredictable. Let's just pray that Gabby does well.

hey trini77, i see where ur coming from. i think it maybe a case of the first time i've seen one of girls compete with "enhancements" already done if u kno what i mean. the way i see it is that its all well and good for the girls if they choose to do that but like T&T also has a rep for sending up competitive girls who are all natural (as far as i kno in terms of the natural part). not one of our delegates have been compared to a latin delegate and especially not in the surgery department. i'm just voicing the "push up" issue because of the pics i've seen and not wanting her to come across as "hoochie" in anyway! the least things we give ppl to make negative comments about the better!

the good thing is that miss world so far has not been crowning the gorgeous model types like miss universe, i guess they want miss world to be more the approachable beauty!

at the end of the day, i supporting gabby all d way.....big "enhancements" or not...lol

p.s. u notice trini77, how we (the true fans) could have a disagreement and a different pov and not end up fighting at each other throats? some ppl need to take a hint...but i aint calling names nah!

You're absolutely hilarious...and yes I am Trinidadian. My remaining family in Trinidad now reside in Valsayn. We're originally from San Juan, or Sawa (not sure how that sounds british to you). It, like the dilect from which it is usually spoken has no resemblance to the british proper english, so really, don't kid yourself. It's funny to me that Trinidadians perceive the british accent to be a measure of class (that's why so many Trinis fake it I assume). That excuse about it being a british colony would have worked 50 years ago, but alas mother England left the country to it's own devices and it's OWN culture and dialect continued to flourish; independant of the initial influence. Jamaica has much the same story, and an accent (they don't hide) that reflects it.

To someone who didn't know better, your weak excuses might have meant something. That being said, I've got to tell you, those people who ask if your accent is british...are obviously trying to say in a kind way, "admit it you're not from England and you're not fooling anyone"...clue in already. I am so embarassed by people like you, you make Trinis seem like they don't have a culture of their own to be proud of.

Persist in negating my heritage if it entertains you, truly some exchange should be in order given the tremendous "entertainment" value I am getting out of Miss Trinidad's atrocious helium filled appendages that Trini77 seems to be so proud of. She's pageant pretty, but the height, the boobs, strike one, strike two...I'm just waiting for the stripper heels.

Well really, "Ent yeh know ah don come teh macko an spread talk so ol yeh let be nah" oooops there goes my british accent again :)

Ok, so I get it. And to be honest I have nothing against your views. The fake accent is a pet peeve of mine too. Speaking properly to alot folks= the "Corn-vunt axe-unt".

And to be honest most of these folks live in the same area you mentioned your family lives. However, I`ve never met Gabby (and I don`t think you have either, maybe I`m wrong) so I dont know if that was an act or not...so I`m not going there.

I admit I didnt like her actions, she tried abit too hard for my liking. Moving on though- with regards to the implants which you hate so much (yes...ok wonderful maybe you are au natural, no to implants, no to makeup, no to weave, no to relaxer...etc) Hey I respect that also. But the point is it comes down to choice. So if she WANTED to get her boobs done, who are you to judge her? She isn`t the first and she damn sure wont be the last.

And I guess finally I just want to know- since you have a major problem with her why do you come here then? Wont it annoy you even more to see said implants plastered all over the forum? Why waste your time?

...anyone can come on the internet and claim to be from T&T or Mars for all I care. It does not matter. No real Trinbagonian would come on here and just have 100% of negativity towards Gabby, or any T&T rep for that matter. I already have an idea of who is this "not impressed" person and in my nearly 30 years on this planet I have never seen a Trini spell dialect that way. To be bashing incessantly, is ridiculous. Yes she is short but still made it to the semis of BB and Top Model when alot of ladies failed to (shouldn't it be something to be happy about). The fake boobs-wait a minute let's talk about all the fake boobs that for decades the Lain and european ladies have had not to mention the liposuction and rib removal-this is the same beauty that Trinis like to go "GA GA" for but let one Trini lady do something that she thinks could advance her further in the competition and everyone has to pong. And for everyone saying Gabby is pushing up the breast-in most pics she is not. Her frame is very compact and tight unlike some of the latin ladies who I might add have bigger implants.

P.S. I am pretty sure my dialect is in tact because up to this year when I was in T&T people were like "you have no accent." I am sorry that you think speaking standard english is like a curse or something-trust me if Wendy spoke in dialect for the prelim interview she would have never made it to the top 10 of MU. Come on people, this is not a political meeting in T'dad where dialect could be appreciated. She is on a world stage and she has to adjust. My gosh people, I have been in the room with and given presentations to elite people (nobel prize winners, major US philanthropists, scientsists, etc) and even I was critiqued as needing to reduce the strength of the foreign accent. Gabby was in the US for a while-she wants to be an acctress-do you really noone told her to pay attention to her accent. Gosh people, fake accent my backsi#e! If she wanted to be fake she would sound American. Even my closest friends have told me I have a strong British accent when giving presentations.

...I was finally able to see the video-my question is "what fake accent?" I am happy to see that she was very animated in the video because this is meant to attract attention for the voting-even if you think she was "trying to hard" you will still remember her after seeing all the vids from the Caribbean delegates for that very same fact. Remember this is for the online voting public-I am glad to see that PE&A made her change up the professional, mature "vote for me" vids that our reps have done before- I always remember the vid of a certain other Caribbean delegate where she was literally hopping around in and extremely animated (fortunately she was able to stand to film hers and not confined to a chair like Gaaby) and I thought to myself-"give the public what it wants for these vids."

It seems every year when a new Miss T&T is crowned there is thess negative posts. I think if you dont like her why bother yourself coming on a forum where most people are in support of her and behind her 100 percent?. This forum is plastered with Gabby's pictures are positive comments for her. Why will you want to suffer yourself the pain of being overwhelmed with all the well wishers?.

Gabby is a fantastic girl and has done remarkably well. I applaud her efforts in being the best that she can be. For your information. Being a former british colony has alot to do with it. I also if it is true that Trini's look at the british accent as some sought of classy accent. It is not just Trini's. You need to take a closer look at things then make your comments.

It is also a fact that when Trini's speak without the native dialect. They do sound british. You said you are Trini but your words says otherwise.

There are many people who talk the way Gabby does. I dont understand why this is even an issue. If you are Trini and talking to someone who is not country. We all know you will speak without your trini dialect. I am sure "Not Impressed" that even you if you are really Trini will change the style of your speach if you are having a conversation with someone or a group on indiviuals from another country.

I am really confused by some of your comments. Is speaking standard english "not having a culture"?.

Gabby is a true gem and is in everyway a true representation of a Trinidadian. Go Gabby!!!!

First of all I am the last person in the world who would object to delegates having plastic surgery, trust me on this :) Most delegates have implants, but Gaby's are of the poorest quality I have seen in many years (not the latin standard). They are sitting WAY too high and quite simply; they make her look cheap (and by extension, also Trinidad). The dated overly provocative wardrobe also doesn't help. This deeply upsets me because once again Peter and his "associates" have gotten it very WRONG. Why they didn't opt for a revision surgery baffles me, they had plenty of time and should have done so when the (very obvious) problem was identified. Any legitimate surgeon would have done the revision at no additional cost.

The only thing that I am sure will be more offensive than this choice will be the predictably horrid gown PE selects for her to match the stripper styled platforms I am sure he is adamant on. I'm cringing just to think what poorly cut boring outdated gown will be framing Trinidad once again. Why doesn't he just contract in some help, or make an alliance with another country's pageant prep team? That's what the latins do. An alliance with Magali Febles' Dominican team might just be in your reach if you play your cards right.

Secondly, Trini77, you live your life on this board...plain and simple. You think that it belongs to you and that you are the all seeing all knowing omnipotent eye of pageantry that we must all bow down to...GET IT THROUGH YOUR HEAD...YOU ARE NOT...WE ARE ALL ENTITLED TO OUR OPINIONS. PS - Don't talk to me about spelling mistakes...I read your posts enough to know that you are no scholar.

Thirdly, fake british accents internationally are laughed at so I reserve my right to laugh again, ha ha. There is no reasonable argument that supports acceptance of such behaviour other than citing a lack of confidence in one's one origins.

Lastly, style of speech (ie. grammar, word usage and sentence composition) is not synonymous with 'accent'. They relate to two very different aspects of speech

...and no, I never adjust my accent.

Where do I start, first of all. It is sad that you still decided to come on this forum in the midst of all these fans of Gabby to defame her. Are you not feeling irritated by the fact that this entire forum is literally plastered with her pictures and well wishers?. Maybe you are. Is this why you feel the need to say only negative things about her?.

Do you have anything positive to say?. Or are you just in hate of everything that is Trinidad and Tobago?. Once again, you keep saying you are a Trini, but have you read your comments?. You sound very bitter to Trini's in general.

First you had a problem with Gabby's accent, then it was her breasts. Now, its about the clothes she wears. For the record, alot of people think that Gabby's breast are just fine. I dont know what problem you talk about that needed to be fixed.

PE&A has been seen as one of the best teams in pageantry. He has created great cutting edge designs and alot of people do like it. I dont know where you come from with this "outdated" comments that just sounds really ludicrous!.

You seem stuck on the idea of horrid gowns? What gown or gowns in your opinion has been so horrid and as you said stripper like platforms that the Miss T&T's has worn?

Secondly "Not Impressed", PE&A has contracted other designers to create gowns for Miss T&T. Last year Bobby A. designed Valene's gown and he is also the designer for Gabby's gown this year. I think you need to do a little research before commenting.

Why in this world will PE&A want to team up with the Dominican team or whoever it is?. PE&A have proven to be a great world class team. They have proven to be on top with their sense of style, great training methods or preparations of the girls. I dont think they need the help of the latin countries. You talk about getting associated with them as some sought of priviledge. T&T has done way bettter than alot of these latin countires alot of times. So, what do you think about Miss Dominican Republic this year?.

You keep insisting with this view of someone having a fake british accent. Again, Gabby speaks perfecrtly fine and sounds 100 percent Trini and showcases the variety of the culture that is Trinidad and Tobago!!. What origins exactly are you talking about?. If you want to talk about origins then we go right back to T&T as a former british colony and thats where english became the language that is the language spoken in T&T. So, quit trying to defend something that can not be defended. You are making yourself look really bad now.

No one said that grammar or word usage in a sentence is the same as with speaking in a accent. We all know that standard english is understood no matter what accent its spoken in. But, you talk about you dont change your style of speech. So, I assume when adressing a group or indiviuals that are not from your country you speak with the day to day trini words?. You know, the ones you speak with your friends etc?. Most people know that when speaking standard english you do sound different.

Also T&T is very diverse and Gabby represents that all the way!!!

That's a riot...Bobby Ackbarali is not a real fashion designer, nor is Peter. Their designs are OUTDATED and outside the realm of actual fashion. I can look in my own closet to find an assortment of ACTUAL designer gowns, can you? Do you even know what's showing in Milan for the spring shows?? No, the closest you've ever gotten to actual fashion is sorting through 'made in china' bolts of fabric in Port of Spain. Don't YOU lecture ME. Their designs belong in the Seventeen Magazine Prom Edition with the other poorly cut ill-inspired designs. Their skill is really quite limited to the trained eye. It doesn't matter where you're from, it's your original interpretation of fashion and ever evolving talent that makes you shine; just look at Carlos Miele. Peter and Bobby just don't have what it takes to be called designers. They are unoriginal, they are dressmakers. To be sure if you yourself really agree with me just hold their work to the standard that I am forced to; the mid-range international standard. It's not the highest standard, it's the bare minimum. Focus on composition of the gowns not cost of the gowns.

You're arguments have no merit so I won't bother responding to any of your other silly remarks. You're too far inside your own bubble to see any flaws within the Trinidadian system. I don't hate Trinidad or Trinidadians; just the excess of stupidity and ignorance that prevails among certain individuals on this board.

That being said, I'll let you go back to your delusions of grandeur and save you from the harsh reality of what is truly lacking for you to have a crown. Miss World is the poor man's Miss Universe so good luck to winning this year's set of rhinestones. Like I said before...you'll need it.

To be honest I got no beef that this person hates Gabby. Not everyone will like her and thats a fact. But I can do without the condescending and judgmental attitude. This person just sounds like she thinks she is better than everyone. A waste folks, lets focus on better things.

To be completely honest if I can be without getting bashed on here, Gabrielle talks like a normal white Trinidadian person to me. British? Maybe, but everyone here knows that white Trini's talk a whole lot different than the rest of the population on the island. It’s hardly spoken with any of the “Creole” Trini words and phrases. No slang, I mean.
Just my two cents.

I am always touched when stories from her project air on the local news cast. I am so proud of my country right now. Even if she doesn't win, my heart is now content. I am always so sad looking at the cancer patients as they air there stories on national TV. I am proud to know that others have felt the same way and hence found Miss T&T deserving of a spot in the Beauty with a pupose challenge. Way to go Gabby! Way to go! You make me proud to be a Trinbabgonian. Thanks a million! See you on Pagaent night with or without that crown, we'll definitely see you!

Hey everyone Gabby made top four in beauty with a purpose with her project with the just because foundation where she opened a pediatric children's ward at mount hope. The video will air with three others on the night of the show. Other finalists were Mexico, Kenya and Hungry. At that point the beauty with a purpose fast track winner will be announced. The video was done by Christian Fluke and narrated by Gabby herself, this announcement was made at the charity dinner where our national gift received the highest bid after a piece from South Africa. Congrats to Gabby.

On another note the rumor is also circulating that the Jamaican camp seems very certain that Miss Jamaica is Queen of the Caribbean already since they are doing the outfits for the MW opening number. I just don't see this happening with the other 6 judges on the 8-member prelim panel.

Pray for Gabby everybody! This is the closest we have been to the MW crown since Michelle in 1995.

I am quite curious to see that Trinidad and Tobago is predicted (as well as Canada) to win the 'Beauty with a purpose' award. Indonesia and Norway are also in the list of four. Is it that you can preview the videos online. I was quite amazed to know that someone said that on missosology. I know Gabby's heart is in the right place so that award will be the most deserving if she gets it; even if she is a contender in that race. Her project was well worth it. I saw some other updated photo's of her on missosology too. I am satisfied with all of her efforts. I hope she wins an award just for her hard work. That will really be 'beauty with a purpose'

The Ministry of Community Development, Culture and Gender Affairs wishes to extend its best wishes and that of the Government and people of Trinidad and Tobago, to the Miss Trinidad and Tobago World delegate Gabrielle Walcott in this year’s Miss World Competition, the finals of which will be held in Johannesburg, South Africa, on December 13, 2008.


The Ministry and, by extension, the Government of Trinidad and Tobago, is conscious of the tremendous opportunities afforded by both the Miss World and the Miss Universe pageants for the development of the delegates themselves as possible role models for our young women, as well as the promotion of our twin island Republic. In furtherance of this, the Government has, over the years, provided the financial support necessary to assist in enabling our delegates to not only prepare themselves, but to compete and produce results of which the country has been understandably proud.

In more recent times, the Ministry has provided financial support to the Trinidad and Tobago delegates at the two competitions as follows:

Year Sum

2006 $300,000

2007 $325,000

2008 $300,000

This year, following representation made by the Franchise Holder, the Government has provided additional assistance in the sum of $284,000 from the Sport and Culture Fund, Office of the Prime Minister, for the Trinidad and Tobago delegates at both the Miss Universe and Miss World pageants, bringing the cumulative financial support in 2008 to $584,000, or approximately 72% of the delegates’ budgeted expenses.

These funds were provided, notwithstanding other successful approaches which the local franchise holders made to other State and Para-state agencies.

The Ministry takes this opportunity, on behalf of the Government of Trinidad and Tobago, to applaud the efforts of Peter Elias and Associates, the franchise holders of both competitions, for their tremendous efforts over the years in the preparation of our delegates for the competitions.

..PRESSURE! Last time I checked, if I did not have enough money to go anywhere out of the country I could not go even if I had 75% of the cash needed. These people ridiculous. I like how they suddenly care after the front cover of Newsday published the problem and then followed up with an article saying Gabby is among the favorites in SA after having placed in the semis of beach beauty. I guess someone decided to cover their as$ just in case Gabby makes top 3- because we all know they going to look nuff bad if she does.

Miss Trinidad's british accent is almost as fake as those cheap saline boobs...couldn't spring for cohesive silicone, huh? Your delegate is disappointing as usual. Good luck, you'll all need it.

...I was wondering when all the discontent on another national forum would filter over to the T&T board. We were a british colony smart-ass hence the accent. I live in the US and when people hear me speak in standard english they tell me I sound British. Please don't hate because your delegate is not generating any posititve feedback in the media.

Funny, in all the 14 years I lived in Trinidad I never realized that "fake british accent" was part of the dialect. Thanks for clearing that up...now explain the part about how those ridiculously obvious fake inflatable boobs actually DO look like actual breasts to you.

Your delegates are getting worse by the year Trinidad. That sloppy cheap plastic surgery just cost you the very slim chance you had at winning that crown. She looks like a cheap video hoe who should be shaking her ass in a nasty rap video; not regal (to say the least). Can't wait to see the clear stripper heels she struts out in for evening gown :) Predictable.

Your choices make it very hard to root for the home team.

...here are my thoughts.

1) There are only 2 possibilities for QOC-T&T or PR. T&T should win but PR has not won this title since 2005 and Winnela will be campaigning hard for her girl on the judges panel. Let's pray Gabby wins.

2) SA is already QOAfrica as we all knew from the start of the competition and is probably already the 1st or 2nd runner up (No comment for now but I think we all know I don't favor this young lady's look). Since SA is the host I am expecting at least one more african delegate to place-I prefer Sierra Leon but you never know if Namibia will suprise at the end.

3) Asia's regional queen will most likely be between India and Lebanon. Philippines will be in the finals based on votes probably.

4) For the Americas, as I said last week on Pageantmania, Mexico is the one to beat. Only 2 others could possibly stead the title Venezuela and Belize (yes I know-a surprise to me to but I don't know how well she was prepared for he interviews). Mexico and Venezuela will definitely be in the top 15-I would also like to see Peru. Belize alone knows how well she can do because her nation does not have a very good track record at int'al pageants.

5)Europe's regional queen is most likely Russia but you never know if they will go with boring Spain because she looks alot tamer (oh gorm, my opinion-don't bite meh head off). Apart from these 2, Ukraine and Slovakia will probably place and so may Iceland.

The one to beat currently for the MW title:
MEXICO! (I've been saying this on Pageantmania even before BB)
Second heavy fav for the title is obviously Russia.

After these-Gabby in third (my opinion), followed by Spain (4th) and Ukraine (who I suspect will only be a semifinalist-really I don't see her winning at all).

Outside shot: Venezuela, Slovakia, Belize (if she is prepared)

I also like Lithuania.

...I still expect Bahamas to place in the finals. It will be interesting to see if DR places but she seems so out of it-maybe if she was a couple years more mature she could handle the pressure better. She is beautiful though-she just seem a bit "lost" in her pics.

P.S. If Ukraine does not make the top 15 I would not be surprised.

I agree, the big 2 are Mexico and Russia. These are the 2 to beat, they are just on fire. I think Ukraine is okay and Slovakia is just a mess to me. Maybe she can be a top model but I really dont see the appeal beyond her height.

South Africa will make it, how far is she going to go, i have no clue. Maybe top 5 im guessing, but I dont think she should win.

The Caribbean isnt as strong as last year. I dont like PR but I wont be surprised if she is in there. Gabby should be there. I dont think Bahamas will be there (her styling is off, she doesnt even looks like she is having a good time in her pics. she lost that radiance she had pre-MW).

I like Venezuela alot, so i`m hoping she cracks the top 5. Spain is no longer my number 1 choice.

I had the weirdest dream last night-Russia won and couldn't fulfill her duties but no one was chosen as a replacement. Not too sure, but I think Gabby was 1st runner-up. I don't think the to 5 were the regional queens either. I don't really dream much so this was weird-I guess I better watch what I eat before I go to bed next time. Lol.

O.K. back to all seriousness- I like your picks smurfguyl. I have to admit that I really like Venezuela alot and I think she is the only one currently who could beat Mexico for the regional title. Venezuela in the top 3 would be fine with me. I am really surprised that now PR is top 2 in the Caribbean and Bahamas (who I formerly thought was the one to beat) in third. I still think she will place but then you never know. I wonder if they will just had over the talent award to an African delegate just to bolster the African presence in the finals. Anyways, you never know what to expect with this one. Who Mrs. Morley likes will make it.

...that though was running through my mind all day yesterday-she better be careful of what she has on during the interviews because we don't want to have a bunch of breasts all up in Mrs. Morley's face. Please go demure for the interviews. I know Bobby will ensure she looks beautiful but classy for the EG segment. I hope she wins this thing-her body is slammin' and her pics have improved drastically (as I expected). Pray people! I want to see Gabby with some MWorg jewelry come the 13th Dec.

I`ve just been going through all the MW pics on a forum and I gotta ask/say...where is Gabby? there are only a few pics of her (besides her Facebook batch).
Its always the same group being featured, with all the girls` camera- Venezuela, Russia, Mexico, Philippines, Ecuador.
Grrr, its so annoying! Ive always hated the lame coverage at MW but this year it has reached it peak.

SA was a surprise, but her body seemed to improve alot since MU. but I think she was placed too high!at the end of the day in BB, im sure Gabby`s height would have come into play. Her body is banging, but she`s short compared to the others, so they will have an edge.They better look out final night ;)

Hanging with Miss World
Article By: Dan Nicholl
Thu, 27 Nov 2008 13:40

Decent day’s golf on a raw but enormously promising course, perfectly pleasant lunch in between, and after a gentle stream of welcome drinks, a quiet dinner with a rather nice band. That was it, I think; although I get the feeling I’m forgetting something. It’ll come to me in a moment, though, I’m sure. Ah yes, that’s it; I’d almost forgotten the 118 Miss World Finalists I spent the first three days of this week with…

Of 2008’s arduous challenges, this was undoubtedly the most taxing — traveling up to Legend, Peet Cilliers’s golf and safari resort in the Entabeni Reserve, and in between having a look at the course and the spectacular nineteenth hole (where Paul Snodgrass famously hit a drive into a rock, and straight back into his nether regions — possibly the funniest sight of 2008), hanging out with 118 of the most beautiful women on the planet. Sometimes you really wish you were working in an office in London.

Ostensibly the golf was the reason for going up — the chance to have an early crack at one of the planet’s more extraordinary courses. 18 designers have created a hole apiece, starting with Trevor Immelman, and ending with Retief Goosen’s sweeping par-five; in between, 16 of the world’s finest golfers have each added a particular touch to what, as far as I know, is the planet’s first composite course of big name players.

There’s a long way to go, as the course only opens officially in March next year, but it’s already shaping up to be something rather special, Sergio Garcia and Camilo Villegas’s par-fours in particular catching the eye. Contrary to rumour, Vijay Singh’s hole won’t be for men only; all 18 holes have a way to go, but Legend is going to be a hell of a golf course when it’s done.

And that’s a considered, focused, objective opinion that was in no way distracted by the Miss World contestants spending the day on the course with us. I can proudly lay claim to having given Miss Holland, Miss Martinique, Miss Mauritius, Miss Poland and Miss Japan their first golf lessons, and explained the intricacies of reading a putt to Miss Latvia, Miss Bulgaria, Miss Moldova and Miss Lithuania; you could tell they were all incredibly impressed at my ability to read the break…

They also steeled themselves and kept rigid smiles in place every time Kurt Darren broke into song on the course — Kurt and his brother Darren (Darren Darren, from the proud tradition of M-Net’s Scott Scot) were taking on myself and Darren Scott, and the Afrikaans crooner kept singing at Miss World finalists whenever they popped up on a particular hole. Miss Bulgaria did think he was wonderful, mind; Sofia FM might just become Eastern Europe’s spiritual home of the treffer.

As devices to make a new course look extremely good go, littering the 18 holes with beauty queens is no bad option; granted, rounding up 118 Miss World finalists does require a little logistical planning, but it’s well worth the effort. Next time you’re hollotining the course, say. Miss World finalists also look reasonable round a campfire, learning to make potjies and to gum boot dance (for what it’s worth, Miss Sweden doesn’t do bugs, Miss USA is gorgeous but can’t dance, and Miss Trinidad and Tobago’s cleavage is probably visible from the International Space Station); and they look quite magnificent in cocktail finery at black tie dinners.

The gala dinner to wrap up the trip to Legend afforded conversation with Miss England, who’s worked at a golf club for the last five years (South African courses need to work on their employment requirements), Miss Belgium, who lived in the DRC for two years (so now you know), and the current Miss World, who’s from China and is four inches taller than me. And our own Miss South Africa, Tansey Coetzee, who’s gorgeous, full of life, and most importantly of all, determined to play more golf once she’s wrapped up her year-long reign.

Ideally, she’ll win Miss World in a fortnight; there is stiff competition though, which leads to my conundrum. I have an engagement party scheduled for next week, but have only managed to narrow the options to Miss Belgium, Miss Norway, Miss Venezuela, Miss Spain and Miss Trinidad and Tobago (she plays the violin quite beautifully). With Miss Zimbabwe (in trouble for sub-letting her hotel room to 14 of her countrymen) and Miss Brazil (almost eaten by a lion on safari; I pulled her away just in time, but it was a close shave) also outside contenders, I’m awash with indecision — but then that, I suppose, comes with the territory when you’re forced to spend three days playing golf and hanging out with 118 of the most beautiful women on earth.

...Gabby is not Anya. After the prelims at MU08, I was already in doubt that we made it-hence I was not shocked for the finals when she did not place. This is a new competition and getting excited about "if we go make it" is half the enjoyment for all the fans. Let's be excited but with level heads. I don't want to see that mess again on this board that transpired when Anya did not place. For now, I am saying I think Gabby can be top 5 but I can't see her outside the top 16.

...the internet connection is slow and it is taking forever for Pageantmania and Globablbeauties to lo load/navigate so I think I am just going to confine the rest of Gabby's MW stint to this forum. I guess in a couple of months I will go back and do a proper gallery for our girl on Pageantmania.

For the poster who was given the caution thanks but at the same time Anya was never the favorite to win MU -she was top 5 material though-yes another one of my quirks-MU and MW winners in my personal opinions have almost flawless faces and Anya did not-hence why I had her as high as 1st runner-up on my predictions and never the winner. Anyways, Anya did her best and we are all proud of her but as I said before, this is a different competition and Gabby is a different person. Realistically, beautywise I would say Gabby is in contention for the MW title because of her fantastic beauty-I think it is a safer match for the MW crown than Valene last year...but again, remember the winner is selected by discussion/debate among the panel and what Mrs. Morley wants will weigh heavily on who makes it to the top.

To reiterate, Gabby is in definite contention for the crown but so are about 5 others.

Gabby is a different person. She is clearly a favorite just because of her fantastic physical beauty alone. I know she is educated and can speak very well. I have confidence that she can do a great job in her interview. Hopefully their discussions will be in her favor. it seems that someone is trying to push Puerto Rico too. I think its going to to be Gabby and Puerto Rico from the caribbean to make top 15. Question, is there a top 15 or top 20 this year?

...is a former MPR and one of Mrs. Morley's closest friends (I think she is godmother to one of her kids)-she will be campaigning heavily for PR this year. I hope Gabby wins the regional title though. No way could I see PR as MW. Gabby still has a chance to win the main title though. Initially, it was 16 places this year but now Globalbeauties is reporting only 15 spots with 9 chosen by a panel of judges.

Go for the crown Gabby!
