I can say without a doubt Gabby looks perfect here.
Her face is amazing, and her body looks killer. Not smiling too hard, just calm cool and collected.

There is another pic of her with a flower in her hair on the blog from the same event but it was taken too close to her face -I don't know anyone who takes good candid photos upclose. Anwyays as we can clearly see from this pic, she face looks flawless-so as we knew already, she knows how to do it right with the makeup.

Apart from that....am.....well, I never thought I would be saying it but I am now very interested to see how Gabby does for beach beauty-really, that body is slammin'! I have not seen a fitter body at the pageant thus far! Go for the crown Gabby! You have want it takes to win!

GO FOR THE CROWN GABBY!

P.S. Either Gabby or someone from the pageant company has been reading our comments because she has on way less makeup here and she now looks like a flawless beauty.

...the more I think she would not look out-of-place in the top 5 of Beach Beauty. At the same time though I know that sometimes the best bodies don't make it to the semis-it's all up to what the judges and Mrs. Morley wants. I hope Gabby does well though. I still have not seen a more impressive physique thus far at the competition.

Here's hoping that they get her hair right for the beach beauty and the final night. She looks best to me with her hair like the way it was when Julia Morely visited TnT earlier this year. I think Gabrielle was wearing a short pink dress in the pic.

Trini77 post the pic nah? pleas..


Oh lawd ah hope yuh ent leave we yet...

...looks young and fresh with natural beauty in these photos. I hope she does well for beach beauty but regardless I am expecting her to place in the finals. Yes, I know I was the "doubting Thomas" (for a poor analogy) when the MT&T pageant took place but I am totally blown away by her body now. All the best Gabs.

P.S. I did not even realize that post was directed at me-I though he was talking about "Trinis" on here since to my knowledge no one on this forum is looking for a hook-up (and yes I have been here for years as we all know-LOL!). I really though he was maybe depressed or something because what he is saying does not make sense.

Anyways, people I am leaving in the morning. Hopefully, I get some sporadic internet access so I can post stuff off and on but I know you all will hold down the fort and support Gabby for me if I can't.

Gabby guyl, if you see this, we behind you 100%. I know you are going to do your best and that is all we could hope for. Can't wait to see you crack the top 16 and advance further on the 13th Dec.

i'm just a lil worried that she mentioned that she wants to be an actress. when girls say that the judges can then wonder if what they are presenting is genuine or all an act. i also dont like how she was moving her head but thats just being picky! ah trini what allyuh expect..lol. i was looking at her eyes though and they were warm and genuine so thats great!

smurfgyrl...ah go tell yuh meh dog taste...lol. what u doing quite in tokyo? working obviously but doing what?

I wish to suggest that Peter and his organization make the sacrifice to raise their own funds. Of course it is very challenging but they can.

How about on-going events like fashion shows, "Beauty Queens Who Can Cook" where former queens (Giselle, Penny, Wendy, Michelle, Heidi, Alexia, Danny, Fay, Maggie, and others) are invited to prepare their special dishes.

What about a Carnival all-inclusive fete?

Kim Sabeeney did it with very little.

We can!!!!!!

Yeah i think they can raise some money too to help. I know the ministry is supposed to provide support and all but we all know the government is unreliable so if its his passion and he has a love for it then raising the money should be an option. Have fashion shows!!

I to think that PE&A can raise their own funds. like Michael said, there are many things they can do to raise the moner they need. What about not only a carnival all-inclusive fete. But, also a Carnival Band. They can launch their own band or maybe seek a special section in an already establish band. They can raise alot of maoney that way.

I'm pretty sure that they would have tried some sort of fund raising before, regardless of what it was. While all these are good ideas how realistic are they? How much support will he get for ventures such as these? To raise 700K a year for beauty pageants with a Trinidadian public is a tall order... Time will tell.

****PS: Where's Adrian Raymond?! I know he visits this site, if you are reading could you please shed some light on this issue?*****

I think they have done the carnival band section before. But thats something you have to do every year. You will always profit from that in T&T. One section in a band I am sure can make the money to sponsor one of the girls. They charge alot for those costumes. That along with some other fund rasing stuff like the carnival fetes and fashion shows etc. can make the money for both candidates. It is very realistic. Anything carnival in T&T will make money. Another thing is, if they do those things and get some fundind from the goverment(How little it may be) they will more than have enough to support each girl. It is possible.

...with all do respect, the comparison with Auntie Kim and Peter Elias and Associates is like comparing a tree to a forest-PERIOD! You all forget that it was Peter Elias who appeared on the scene in 1994 or thereabouts and he revolutionized the T&T pageant scene even while learning from the great queen maker herself. Take away Peter Elias from the T&T circuit-I highly doubt we would have had a MU in 1998 or many placements internationally for that matter.

Peter Elias knows better than anyone on this forum what Auntie Kim did and let me tell you if he did what she did we probably would not be at either competition. The competitions are more competitive now. Auntie Kim would have been in trouble herself-even her own daughter could not raise funds. And let's be honest, Peter Elias has used his own money from selling his clothes to finance these ladies and still he fell short. Additionally, it is 3 frekin' people who have to bear this burden-they are human-what the heck do you people want from them-they have been living and breathing this thing like crazy-what the hel# more you all want them to do?

I would like to suggest to you that most Trinis who come up with these suggestions don't know what busy is-really, that has been my experience personally. Additionally, you need money to do a start up business-MT&T reps. need the money now -go figure? Also, last time I checked any business could buss! (Any of you all fronting the money). Finally, and most importantly, I don't know anyone in the pageant circuit around the globe who would work their a$s off to spend it on someone else-is freakin' brand T&T he promoting-what, you all feel he making any fuc#ing money back from this thing? Talk cheap yes! The man have a family to take care off and money eh easy to come by people!

You all sound like people from Government-all ah all yuh want to off load everything on Peter Elias but yuh a$s go turn up at the airport when we win-and still Peter would not even get any type of recognition. HE IS ONE MAN YOU KNOW-NOT GOD!!! GROW UP PEOPLE!

Trying not to be to pessimistic, but seeing these pics of Gabby I just dont feel anything...honestly the girl is nice, but I dont think MW nor MU is her playing ground...If PE&A really wishes for funding they have to prove a point...yes I admit they have done well, but there needs to be consistency and a need to cut down on the excess...

TnT is also no pageant nation, so asking for such a large amount of money from the govt is ridic...its either we focus on one pageant and perform excellent or forget the whole thing! We're still small in the game despite a few placements...doing well in this business means selecting a girl meeting the characteristics of these organisations! We cant try to be different..at the end of the day its all about marketing!! When was the last time someone shorter than 5'8 won any major intl pageant...excluding MUSA of course...time to get serious!!! We need girls with that extra something like Valene, Kenisha, Fay...there was just something genuine and extra about these girls that you're not getting nowadays...

MU2008, Diana Mendoza, sure seems over the top...but at the end of the day...she's young/naive...therefore this over the top behaviour is genuine and expected...

I mean its sucks but you kind of have a point. the fact is we are not the only nation going through this stress, in fact only a select few, like USA, Venezuela, PR, DR etc. dont have this kind of stress. at the end of the day its his choice...to continue or not to continue. But Peter has to face it- either he tries on his own or just give it up.

I apologize for the strong wording, but I don't understand this 'raise funds for yourself' suggestion when we all know Peter Elias has tried that and it is not working. Let's hope he dumps both franchises because Trini people don't know how to appreciate a good thing when they have it sometimes.

Considering the pageant that she is in, I dont think that her height is really important. Miss World does not only crown tall girls. Its about who and what the girls is and if she represents the Miss World orgainisation best.

I also dont think that her height is a problem because Gabby is a very beautiful girl. She knows how to be notice and obviously get attention. I dont think height is a major problem in any pageant these days. If the girl has the beauty and her body is in good shape, together with the right personality she can win.

Gabby has all these things. I hope she does well because I know she can. She is currently one of the favorites.

Concerning PE&A situation. I still do believe there are ways they can raise the money if they are not getting anything at all from the goverment. he has done a great job with the Miss T&T franchise. I will not like to see him give it up. Hopefully the gonverment do decided to give the support to them. Also if this is something he really want to continue. He needs to find another way to gain the finances he needs

...guyl, no offence taking. I have been under alot of stress in the past year and have had too many run-ins with nasty people-I think I just got meaner, blunter and extremely abrasive from those experiences. Thanks so much for all your input! I always look forward to your posts.

Anyways, as I said-Peter was going out of his mind a couple years back in an interview where he literally sounded crazy (and I am not exaggerating-I was even surprised that it made it to the press) I am not too sure many people are aware of it. This pageant thing is his passion but he sets high standards for it and it shows in how well T&T is doing internationally. He can't generate enough funds on his own-Period! I just don't see the fiscal argument that he should support this thing. We are not even 2 dots on a world map and he is asking for pennies to send the reps. to these pageants where we have been doing well with his system. As I said, dump both-we will not attend another pageant consistently again unless a Gov't entity (eg. TIDCO) acquires the franchises...an Dthen they will come running to Peter to train the ladies because they don't know what they are doing.

All the best to Gabby for the Miss World Beach Beauty competition (prelims are on Friday with the finals on Saturday). I think she can make top 5-let's hope the judges agree.

Queen of the Caribbean: Either T&T or PR (something tells me Winela is going to fight very hard for PR to win). I officially think it is between these two.
3. Bahamas
4. DR
Special Mention: Jamaican design outfit Uzuri is doing the opening number dresses for MW08. The MWJ franchise may also be transferred later next year to Uzuri. Will Jamaica again make it? (Personally, I think she looks weak)

My top picks:
1. Mexico
2. Russia
3. Venezuela
4. Ukraine
5. Spain
6. Trinidad and Tobago
7. Slovakia
8. PR
9. Sierra Leon
10. Bahamas
11. Lebanon (gorgeous but I have not seen much of her)
12. Ecuador
13. Peru
14. Iceland
15. DR (still don't get the "deer in the headlights" look)

Realistically: SA is already Queen of Africa

I still think Gabby is going to do great-I was not expecting much when she was crowned but I am totally impressed with her drastic improvement. I would be shocked if she missed the semis. I hope she wins the regional title but we all know PR has not gotten the regional title in a couple of years and Wilnela will campaign vigorously for MPR. I still don't understand the disappointment about Gabby that some people are expressing. MT&Ts are known to shine the best onstage so I am not disappointed-if she walks onstage wearing a bolt of cloth like Anya did then I will have something to be upset about-for now I think she is doing fine. Yes she is short but this is MW and we all know who Mrs. Morley likes will make it to the top -last year's Angola being a fine example.

So for now let's give critical comments where needed and keep the positivity flowing.

No more Miss Universe?
By MELISSA DASSRATH Sunday, November 23 2008


Miss Trinidad and Tobago for Miss World and Miss Universe may well be taking their final bow this year.

Pageant organiser and local fashion personality Peter Elias is lamenting that the powers-that-be have not readily come forward to offer financial support for the pageants and he is at the point of throwing in his hat when it comes to promoting this country internationally.

Elias told Sunday Newsday that he has been forced to personally take out bank loans to finance the competition. Even the destiny of Miss TT World, Gabrielle Walcott, was on shaky ground for a while. Walcott is now in South Africa doing her best to properly represent the country for this year’s competition.

The fashion guru said that after the embarrassing absence of Miss TT in 2007, the Government had made a commitment of their continued support. “Last year, we didn’t go to Miss Universe because I was unable to generate any support from private sponsors. I was in touch with the then Minister of Community Develop-ment, Culture and Gender Affairs, Joan Yuille-Williams.

“After we couldn’t raise the money last year to send a representative, we got a commitment from the Ministry that this will never happen again. The Minister vowed that the Government will always support Miss TT.”

Elias said that the Government honoured its commitment by fully supporting Miss TT in preparation for the Miss World competition, but has since failed to be as forthcoming with the funding for the other representative. Said Elias, “We selected Valene Maharaj as Miss TT World and she went on to do very well. She was the third runner up. Foolishly, I believed we could count on them. We had our selection in February and we selected two delegates, Anya Ayoung-Chee for Miss Universe and Gabrielle Walcott for Miss World. But I got the Government’s show of support the day before Anya left for the competition. They gave us a cheque for $100,000.”

But, he explained, it costs a pretty penny to prepare a representative for the competition. “Generally we need about $350,000 to $400,000 per delegate per show. This money goes into various things. From their participation fee, airfare, hotel accommodations, a stipend for the girl and her manager, nutrition, gym trainer and, depending on the girl, there are assorted fees for dancing, vocal training, stage performance, public speaking, photography and makeup and hairstyling lessons. Each delegate requires different training. They agreed then, that this was not much money for the potential of return of their investment. You cannot measure what these girls bring to the country because it’s priceless.”

Elias said he personally appealed to the Prime Minister’s Office to convey the dire straits the women and the competition were in. In addition, Elias indicated, he has written a number of letters about the situation, but to no avail.

“I have written so many letters. Just reminding them of the budget and the timing of the event, being as courteous as I can. Imagine the frustration of calling and writing with no response for months.”

A ray of hope came in the form of a cheque, Elias noted. “They had previously given us the $100,000 for Anya. Subsequent to that, I was forwarded to the Sport and Culture Fund where we got $280,000 for specific aspects of the training. Then in August, we got one more $100,000 from the Ministry. So today we have received $480,000, almost $300,000 short of our budgeted need (for both women).”

According to Elias, the budgeted need tends to wax and wane depending on unforeseeable events, “When I go through the costs it’s remarkable. For instance, Gabby’s show was postponed from August to December 13, so I had to train her for two more months than anticipated. We had prepared a winter wardrobe for the competition which was supposed to be held in the Ukraine, then it was moved to South Africa a warm climate so now we had to buy a better suited wardrobe.”

Elias said that the most upsetting aspect of the situation is the apparent indifference he has met in trying to deal with the situation.

“The job of the (Culture Ministry) is to promote the culture of Trinidad and Tobago. You have to appreciate that the success this country has enjoyed in the last ten years, since I have been working with the competition, has only been because of my thorough preparation. It has not been accidental or luck. So we are promoting our country, but not being supported by our country.”

He compared our lack of support for national delegates to other countries. “Many first world countries recognise the promotion as a form of a marketing tool whereas in developing countries governments usually sponsor the competition because they consider it a developmental tool for young women and a strategy to promote their country on the world stage.”

The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Community Develop-ment, Culture and Gender Affairs, Earl Nesbitt, could not be reached for comment.

...I totally support any decision by PE&A to dump both franchises. That being said, I hope Gabby does really well in SA and when she gets back to T&T she opens her mouth and says something to the media so at least Peter Elias could get his money back from the loans he took. I know Peter Elias along with his charges love to show the greatest class and respect to others but really they people from the ministry have no class themselves.

It is so sad that we have found a gold mine for marketing T&T and as usual small minded trinis muck it up.

Anyways, I actually saw this article on pinoyexchange and I was shocked. News travels fast I guess.

Anyways, Pete, you did not fail us-the government did!

If Gabby wins MW, I think Peter Elias should dump the franchise if he is not given a written guarantee of support from the government. I know Pete must be holding out for Dec 13th to see if Gabby makes top 5-that would ensure probably some funding for a T&T rep to MU09-but really, this situation is not healthy for Peter Eias, his team and family. It is ridiculous that the Trinidad and Tobago pageant company should be living this hand-to-mouth existence. No one in T&T can hold on to either major franchise-MT&TW or MT&TU-for over 3 years unless the gov't is funding it-I guarantee you that. CCN, which makes millions of dollars every year in profit dumped the MT&TU franchise in 2.5 years. Additionally, if someone else takes over the franchise from PE&A, I can assure you we are going to have a bunch of Heidi Rostants on our hands-ladies with beauty and intelligence to make it to top 5 at MU and MW, but who are going to not place or infrequently, if they do, they will not get as far as they could, because of inadequate training. If PE&A relinquishes both franchises then, MT&T will go back to the days we just attend the competition to make up numbers-I guarantee you we will have beautiful ladies who can garner media attention and make alot of prediction lists-but we are not going to do well for the finals which is what counts.

Pathetic, assinine government! I can't wait to vote these people out of office-never again for me.

...in a vehicle that could fund almost both delegates for a year. What a society we live in-no expense is spared for the comfort of our politicians but ask for a dime to market T&T internationally and you can't even get a response.

The spotlight is on Latifah
By Rhea-Simone Auguste

Saturday, November 22nd 2008





The spotlight is on 15-year-old Latifah Morris as she strikes a pose on a black leather sofa. Click. Snap. A few pictures are taken and top local photographer Calvin French is noticeably pleased. "Beautiful darling, you're a natural," he coos as the young beauty switches to another pose. "Great! Just drop your chin a little and let your jaw relax. Give me a natural smile. That's it. Beautiful," French adds.

His positive feedback is doing wonders for Morris as she becomes visibly more relaxed and confident for her first photoshoot. The venue for the shoot is Bally's Hair Studio in Woodbrook. Morris spent the better part of the morning in the stylist's chair, having her shoulder-length hair cropped and styled to perfection. Before, it was the make-up artist's job to transform her look from natural beauty to polished model.

Her response to the transformation? "I like it. I'm still getting accustomed to the haircut but it's a new look. I can't wait to hear what my friends in school have to say about this," the Cunupia High School student proclaimed.

Morris copped the Coco Velvet International Top Female Model title last Sunday during an intense finale at Fiesta Plaza in MovieTowne. Though she had prepared for the event with Coco Velvet head Christopher Nathan and his fashion-savvy team, she said: "I was so nervous. I still get nervous about being on a runway in front of lots of people but it's fun and I'm getting accustomed to it. I get nervous when I see cameras. But I'm working on it and it's been a great experience so far."

On the night of the competition she was, in her own words, "not expecting to win anything. I was the youngest there and when they called the top five, my name wasn't called. Then one of the assistants came upstairs and asked for Latifah. There was an error and the fifth girl and I had the same amount of points. Then I made it to the top two and then they announced I had won in my category. My mom was so proud! She was there screaming in the crowd and we were crying. It was a great moment," she shared.





Prior to the competition, Morris said she never modelled "except in front my mirror! I watch Tyra Banks and I thought about modeling but this is the first time I tried doing anything with it. So far, I love it. It's given me the opportunity to meet new people - top designers like Peter Elias and photographers like Calvin French. There are many girls who would love this opportunity so I plan to work hard and show that I'm happy for the chance to be a model. Plus, with modelling, people get to know me better and I think that is good because I can be a role model for younger girls coming up. The people who know me would tell you I'm a solid, hard-working, fun-loving person and I hope this would result in me having a long career in this business."

Still, the young beauty intends to push herself harder at school. "I want to have a long career as a model but I also want to have something stable to fall back on. Maybe accounting. So I'm going to balance my school work and this new career," she explained.

Now that she's touched a bar she set for herself, the young Cunupia resident has set another goal for 2011. "I want to win a Miss Universe pageant," she revealed. "So in three years, I will be going up for the Miss Trinidad and Tobago pageant. That's something I'm looking forward to doing."

So perhaps in 2011, the 2009 Coco Velvet International Top Female Model may be a step closer to her dream goal of being a Queen. Perhaps there is room in the world for another dynamic and successful Queen Latifah. Time will tell.

Hey everyone
I must send my positive vibes Gabby's way. I am so proud to see that every website I have visited has Gabby in their top 20. I think this girl is a cut above the rest. She can stand alongside all those girls and still stand out as a Trinbago beauty. It feels so good to know that every year we keep getting better at it. What great girls represent the entire Caribbean. I want the Caribbean girls to be the ones to beat. Go!!! My Caribbean beauties, and Go Gabby! Go get us that crown.

Hey Trini, you seem to be a big fan of Bahamas. Why cant I see it with her? I think her body is amazing, but her face is too harsh for my liking. Shes one of their best in years though, but I dont see her making the cut :( (I`d like to see the caribbean strong again though). I think Europe is very strong this year.
Another person I dont get is DR. Pretty yes...but her face looks frozen. and that `deer in the headlights` look has got to go.
tell me your thoughts on Bahamas and DR

...both Bahamas and DR will be in the top 15. I don't think DR will be regional queen-she is totally inconsistent in terms of her expression in photos-as you said, I just don't get the "deer in the headlights" look that she does ever so often. What is that about? At least in these pics she is looking good-she is gorgeous-no denying it but she has nothing unique-we have seen this before-text book beauty. To be honest, I totally turned off from DR as the one to beat for the regional title after her pics from her send off party-did she even know she should have been happy at her own event?

I like Bahamas-when she has to "glam it up" she does so very well. I am still expecting Gabby to be regional queen but I put Bahamas as the one to beat for that title based on her pics thus far (this can change). At the end of the day though, for the actual competition Gabby can give all the ladies a run for their money even if they think she is too short. I can't get over the killer body! Wow Gabby! Really, I think Peter Elias went all out on her wardrobe and training even though he did not have the money because apart from the fact she had already been crowned MT&T and Peter likes to keep his word, I think he knows Gabby has the potential to do very well in this competition.

I think Gabby has regional queen on lock. But as you said the interview is very important. DR...hmm im not sure. she is pretty but its kind of stiff this year. but i really cannot predict MW. So far Im really liking (besdides Gabby) Russia, Spain and Vzla. but...?

I think Gabby has the regional title under her belt. She has been looking good with all her pictures I have seen. To be honest, I am not sure who is second behind her. Its a very close race at this time base soley on pictures. I personally prefer Bahamas over Dominican Republic.

I agree that Dominican Republic has nothing unique to who look. She has this one expressing. Like someone said "deer in the headlights look". her mouth looks kind of weird too. I dont know if she will make the semis.

Bahamas is my personal choice behind Gabby but I have to say I have been a little disappointed with some of her pictures. She does look good when she is made up though. Lets see how she progresses as the competition go on.

Gabby is clearly the front runner in the caribbean region though. I think she has what it takes to do very well. her body is on point and I know she knows how to be noticed. She is smart and intelligent. I think she will do great in her interview. I wish that the MWO would update their site with contestants videos just like Miss Universe. They are so behind sometimes

Ahh you expressed it perfectly. There is nothing unique about DR.
I havent seen any pics of Martinique in SA, but i like her look more than DR and Bahamas. I think Jamaica is rather cutesy but her body needs some work. But we all know MW loves Jamaica, so you never know.

...she does not look this good-additionally, given her huge frame I would have expected her to tone it up considerably but I am not even impressed with her body -anyways, we still have to see her in SS, but I am not impressed at all with how she looks in her outfits.

PR however, has been looking much better than expected-I would place her 4th in the region but if DR with her "deer in the headlights" look continues with that mess then I would place PR 3rd because she actually shows some personality in the photos...well at least more than DR.

Danielle in TOP 10 at Global Beauties LEADER BOARD -
http://www.globalbeauties.com/world/2008/w08_leaderboard.htm

She's definitely the woman of beauty and substance. beauty queen Danielle Kirsten Muriel Castaño, the country's official representative to the Miss World 2008 said that she hopes to be the first Miss World from the Philippines.

Castaño is off to Johannesburg, South Africa this coming Saturday, November 15 to compete in 57th Miss World Beauty Pageant, which will be held on December 13 at Sandton Convention Center.

Castaño, the beauty with a purpose, admitted that she really feels the pressure to bring the first Miss World crown in the country but promised that will give all her best to win in the said the prestigious competition."I think the pressure is wala pang naging Miss World from the Philippines and I would like to be the first Miss World from the Philippines," Castaño told abs-cbnNEWS.com in an interview during her send-off party at the Mandarin Suites at the Gateway Mall in Cubao. Castaño who will be competing against 106 other candidates from all over the world also shared her excitement to represent the country and proved that Filipinas soar high when it comes to beauty and substance."I'm so excited because I will be competing at Johannesburg in South Africa and I'm ready so I can't wait," she said.

The beauty queen said that as part of her preparations for the pageant she's been training a lot of things especially for the question and answer portion. She also undergoes training in catwalk skills and personality development with topnotch experts, she also learn how to put on her make up and other stuff she needs to as the official candidate to Miss World.

"Binibining Pilipinas was a training too when I was a candidate so I think that help too. And kahit na yung time (sa preparation) kasi pumasok ako sa school alam ko handa ako ito yung ginusto ko at nasa puso ko ang pag-compete abroad. I really want to be in this place," she said.

When asked on what she thinks will be the hardest part of the pageant, Castaño replied: "I think everything is difficult but with the help of other Binibining Pilipinas and with the help of people who are training me I would say that it's my pleasure and I'm just happy that they'd been helping me. Maybe I should not say it's difficult because I'd been working hard for this and this is what I want."

Castaño who was born abroad but raised here in the country said that she believes in destiny adding that she's destined to be in the upcoming pageant. She also shared that aside from her fellow countrymen her biggest inspiration for the pageant is her loving mother, the woman she considered as her hero and the wind beneath her wings.Castaño also said that her strongest point to win the pageant is that the fact that she doesn't give up."My strongest point is I don't give up and lagi akong palaban and dapat when I get there in competition I should always think positive which how I am right now and for the whole pageant as well," she told the news site.

The 19-year-old beauty was raised in the country's shoe capital -- Marikina City but currently residing in Quezon City. She's also an athlete and excels in volleyball and track and field. Being the eldest of three sisters, Castaño also holds a soft spot in her heart for sick and abused children. She said that she want to be remembered as someone who did something socially significant for the underprivileged.

'I love Janina'. Castaño made headlines when Binibining Pilipinas organizers announced that she will be replacing the controversial Janina San Miguel as the country's official representative to Miss World.During the interview, Castaño said that there's no pressure for her replacing the original Miss Philippines-World but she stressed that she hopes that San Miguel will find happiness wherever she maybe."I wish Janina all the best and just keep praying and I hope to see you soon and I love you," she said.

Castaño told the news site that she wasn't able to find time to meet and to talk to San Miguel. "Actually hindi ko pa siya nakakausap so hindi ko po alam," she said.It will be recalled that "Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc. (BPCI) announced last September 29, that Ms. Janina San Miguel has resigned as official representative to the 2008 Miss World beauty pageant.San Miguel won the Binibining Pilipinas Ms. World despite having difficulty answering a judge's question in English.

Report said that the untimely demise of San Miguel's grandfather, among other personal reasons, has caused her undue stress, thus hindering her from fulfilling her duties for the said title."In accordance with BPCI rules and regulations, 1st Runner-Up Danielle Castaño will replace Ms. San Miguel as the official Philippine representative to the Ms. World 2008 pageant," Belle Baldoza, public relations officer of the Araneta Group said.

Castano who also looks like the beauty titlist-turned actress Riza Santos said that she's not yet determined if she will join the showbiz after the competition.Before the interview end, Castaño just appealed for the support and prayers of her fellow Filipinos as she competes for the 2008 Miss World."Thank you po sa lahat ng suporta niyo sa akin and prayers and I hope that I will bring home the bacon, well -- for sure I will bring home the bacon and I will just make everyone proud. Thank you so much," Castaño ended.

...WELL SINCE NO ONE WANTS TO SAY IT, I WILL-WHEN YOU COMPARE GABBY'S PHOTO QUALITY TO THOSE FROM OTHER CONTESTANTS, IT IS OBVIOUS THEY SPENT QUITE A BIT MORE MONEY THAN GABBY! I DARE SAY GABBY'S PICS HAVE THE WORST LIGHTING OF ALL THE DELEGATE PHOTOS I HAVE SEEN BUT I AM NOT BOTHERED-OUR GIRL IS STILL ROCKING IT.

GABBY IF YOU READING THIS, TRY SNAPPING A PIC OF THE SKY TO ADJUST THE LIGHTING WHEN OUTSIDE BEFORE TAKING ADDITIONAL PICS-MAYBE THAT MIGHT HELP!
Anyways, Gabby's body is so on point. Very fit indeed! I am so impressed. She said today that she leaves for a Safari for about a week so I doubt they will have much access to internet although knowing the latina delegates they will find a way if it's possible...my gosh, the latin delegates are posting hi-resolution shots! Anyways, our girl is going to do fine. She has what it takes to go very far in the finals on the 13th Dec.

negative: makeup def. needs some work but i thought about something, most of the pics we've seen are from her camera. its obvious that she doesnt have a big fancy professional camera so that could be the cause of the "bad makeup" look. built in flash never flatters.
positive: Our girl is rocking with her wardrobe! the colours and styles really work for her. Her waist looks so small, almost like she's been wearing a corset on the down low all the time....lol. she is going to stand out like all the past ms. t&t's in other pageants and be known for being one of the best dressed! you go girl!

I think she looks beautiful. There is nothing wrong with her make up. You need to remember what may look good on a picture may not be the same when in person. And likewise what may not look good in a picture is what is needed to look good in person and in stage. You all have to remember this is a beauty pageant. I think she is styled right and her makep up in good too. I have seen some picture where you guys were saying she had on to much make up. But, that same picture from another angle and better lighting she looks great.

To PE&A cintune this wonderful work you are doing. I hope Gabby wins Miss World 2008!

...she looks fantastic in this outfit but I still think she needs to tone down the blush or whatever she is using on her cheeks.

Gabby looks great and competitive. Im sure all of our delegates check out this board for support and feedback.so when someone gives a third eye opinion, i think both the delegate and the pageant company apply it once it is the best for our delegates. Case in point was that ill fitted orange Claudia Pegus dress Danielle wore at the Ms Universe prelims. Most posters on the board acknowledged that the colour was wrong and it did not fit right. behold that horrid creation was not worn on the finals. Thank God. So im sure the make up issue will be soughted out. I think we can critique but with tact. We need gabby to be confident and harping on a number of her negative features can give a strong blow to her ego. She does not need this now, we do not need this now. gabby if your reading your doing great already and please share how the hell you got your waist so tiny.

Today Gabby did her personal vid for MW and she said it went great. She is leaving comments on her FB page.

Gabby looks nice but somehow im not 100 percent pleased with her look. I dont know what it is. is it the makeup? or her smile (yes miss critique thinks in some photos she is smiling to hard almost, does this make sense?)
I cant put my finger on it yet. oh well, hopefully more pics soon. thank god for facebook!

And to be honest its not only her who just isnt pulling it off 100 percent. one of my favs ecuador doesnt look as good as her photoes either.to be honest i think these girls are just a product of photoshop. its just used way to much now, so when you see candids they dont look the same.
anyway Gabby, go for it

...don't like the make-up at all. Someone else commented on Pageantmania that they think she is using too much bronzer (or however you spell it-yes Ms Critique you could help me with the spelling). Yes Gabby is smiling in all the pics, but it looks very one note because of the make-up for me-it just throws the whole look off. I always liked her smile and I am sure with better lighting the bronzer would look better but ...as a few have commented...and I agree...with Gabby, she tends to look way better with less make-up at times. For the finals, I expect her to go all out with the make-up but for these candid shots maybe she should use less -she look fantastic when Zi Lin visited T&T so I am sure she knows how to work the make-up.

That being said, for me the best shot are always taken outdoors in the sun because the lighting is much better.

Mm yes I think the makeup is 1. very heavy (which i guess is normal for these things) and 2. the shade is just not working for her. yes maybe too much bronzer for real. She looks soo much better when she keeps it simple. Well I`ll wait to see more photos, hopefully it will get better. But her clothes are on point as usual though. I knew that wont be issue with her.

I believe that Gabbi is wearing too much make up. She really does look much better with less or a natural look her flawless face and skin isn't meant to be covered up like that who ever is doing her make up needs to told that come on. Any way all the best rock this pageant GABBI!!!!

You know i guess my problem is that in all those group shots thus far FOR ME, she isnt standing out the way I want her too.
I mean my eyes arent going straight to her. I wish there was more of a wow factor. ANd i know her height is one issue. On the runway she is very fierce...and can pull it off. But in the photos...hmmm

...of the delegates at all. Half of the photos floating around all the boards are from Gabby's FB page-Globalbeauties even posted a couple stating they did not know where they came from.

Anyways, I am not worried. Gabby knows what expectations everyone has for her and she can deliver. She needs to impress during the interviews and EG and SS segments. She has what it takes to place in the semis and to go far. Interview! Interview! Interview! Can't stress that enough.

On another note smurfguyl, are you by chance the one on Pageantmania posting negative comments repeatedly about Gabby? If you don't have anything good to say, then please say it only once if you must and balance it off with something positive. This is our girl. We have enough people who bash T&T every year, regardless of who we send. I don't understand all the sudden comment about how she looks-we have had enough untouched photos of her for you to know what she looks like. Yes the comment about the makeup was a critical one but we don't need to hear repeatedly how "unimpressive" and "ordinary" she looks. I am not worried-Gabby will do her best and I know she has what it takes to do well-it's up to the judges to decide if she is a good fit.

Sorry Trini, I love our girls, i love my country but im always gonna post my true thoughts. good or bad. im not just gonna blindly support and love everything because im a trini. i hate her makeup, her first pics didnt impress me and ill see what happens next. my posts arent gonna affect her scores or anything dont worry.

So ..LOL..let me get this straight.
Ive seen you guys post negative things about other girls..like Jamaica (trivial things such as the mole) or Venezuela (her nose..which ive also talked about). so thats okay...
but saying something negative about our girl is not okay?
I think it just all turns into this kind of patriotic/fanatic and sometimes true opinions are lost.
and im always supportive of our girls..so if she looks fab i will sing her praises(as ive been doing). and if she doesnt i will also say it

...THERE IS NO NEED TO GET DEFENSIVE. I don't know what nose issue you claim we "guys" (whoever apart from me you are referring to) had with Miss Venezuela-when last did I ever comment about that mole-oh yes, it was about a couple months ago and I said it was unattractive-you must still be visiting the Jamaica Star forum where her nose and mole are still an issue for some of her own supporters.

I never said to not post your thoughts-but at this time, when you know who looking to bash T&T all over the place, you come literally out of the starting blocks like a horse on Kentucky derby day with one NOTE on an international forum-"Gabby is not impressive." So Ms Critique, please, with all due respect, check yourself. To my knowledge, you don't know the difference between a critique and bashing-a critique needs to be based on truth and hopefully points out something that can be improved. If you are so concerned about Gabby's overall appearance and can't contain the overflow that is your opinion, then please try to keep most of those floodwaters in this forum where it is the T&T home base and not people from a various countries around the world.

No one appreciates this ONE NOTE mentality! It's like you only have tunnel vision with Gabby. You can't see others.

Im referring to you and your usual posse who got into all those childish squabbles with that idiot on miss. forum.
and dearest trini, i dont visit nor did i even know about that jamaican star forum. just look at all your past posts on miss. and you`ll remember what im talking about.
See the thing is I look past the sash...and some ppl dont.
for example i remember when you posted that pic of anya at the mall in vietnam in that short pants, i wrote how much i hated that trashy look. of course you almost bit my head off. now you are writing that you didnt like that outfit...blah blah wasnt appropriate etc. Why didnt you say that before? After she didnt make the cut you were like another person saying all kinds of things. a week before that she could do no wrong.
Just be honest sometimes thats all im saying. and ill continue to post my thoughts, because it doesnt concern me if it plese you or not

You have a habit of trying to dictate what should and shouldnt be said. fact is thats the point of a forum aint it? people wont agree all the time. you have your views, i have mine. maybe you dont agree with me, but dont try to label me as this or that...so maybe you are the one who should be doing the `checking`. dont be concerned about me

No offense, but I don't think you remember what was posted-please look at the archive pages.

It's Gabby's moment-let's not get into any arguments-I am pretty sure she visits this forum. After the 13th Dec, you can say what you want about me. It will not matter to me then.

...I am a horrible person. I can never seen anything wrong with Gabby or any MT&T for that matter. YOU WIN EVERY ARGUMENT YOU WANT TO START WITH ME.

Hopefully, now you can stop making the sly comment, that serve nothing more than to irk me into an argument. I don't have time for that at all. Let's focus on supporting Gabby, and giving useful critiques that the pageant company can use-I am sure they along with Gabby have already seen the suggestions about her make-up and they will adjust as they think is best.

You win smurfguyl, you win!

Why the fighting here. I dont understand some of the disagreement. Smurfgyrl, what happened to you?. Wont you the one just recently praising Gabby?. To me she looks fabulous. I did not know you held such disdane for Trini77. You always seemd to agree with him or most of his comments. You sond like a new person. Gabby dont look like a different person from when she left.

This time belongs to Gabby, I think she looks great. Go Gabby, you have our support!!!

Hey guys, just wanted to let you all know I will be completing my Grad school tenure on the 26th Nov and I will be moving around for a while until I get a job so I will be off the forum from the 26th November for a while-at least a couple of months. Thank you to everyone who has made the experience on this forum an enjoyable one. C, Maximus, PB, Smurfguyl, WestIndian, Evaluator (and who ever I am forgetting)-big up to you all! Keep the support going.

To Peter Elias and Associates and Gabby-you all know I rooting for a win for Gabby on Dec 13th 2008. I am very proud of you all. Thanks for the fantastic representation.

Now back to business, since I only have a few more days left on the forum:
I will be starting a gallery of pics of Gabby at MW08 in the Pageantmania forum (follow the link:
http://pageant-mania.ephpbb.com/trinidad-tobago-f59/tt-at-miss-world-2008-johanesburg-south-africa-t904.htm#12747 ). Please, update the thread with photos of Gabby.

How to upload photos (at least how I do it on Pageantmania):
1. Go to www.imageshack.com
2. Choose the file and click the "upload" button
3. A new page loads--> Click "Show advanced linking" at the bottom of the page
4. Copy that link

To post on Pageant mania click on reply button at top right and:
Either place the copied link between [img]link here[/img]

The first photos of delegates for the MW pageant are actually from Gabby's FB page.

Now for our girl, I have to ask-why do her lips look so red and shiny? ...and yes I still think she looks a little tired from her long trip but it is good to see that she is up and about. I am very happy they are posing her personal photos online. We will be able to see more of her.

...looks on point-I love her in that black mini dress. I don't know how she will do in the beach beauty because we never know what they are looking for but I know she is going to rock the EG competition. I can't wait to see her EG-I know Bobby will do a design that emphasizes how tiny her waistline is.

...Miss Trinidad and Tobago uses the internet to give a more personal view of the pageant. I am so happy. Yes we have financial issues, but Gabby is now the first delegate Miss T&T World to ever start posting her personal shots from the pageant online. In her latest posts she says that she will post some more pics as the pageant progresses.

Go for the crown Gabby!

Im so happy she is posting her personal photos, because i just think the media coverage will suck as usual.
Her outfits look great, she looks tired but still fab.She looks very short compared to the others but hopefully with the right looks, interview and attitude she can do it

Wonder if there were photographers when she got there at 8:30am (South Africa)-her transit was at least 33 hrs long. I am not expecting any phenomenal look at the airport. She must be tired more than anything after that long trip.

I know that alot of you guys are upset and rightfully so. I hope that PE&A dont ever give up the franchise and continue with the wonderful work they are doing. If was not for the team of PE&A. I dont think T& would of experience the success they have for the last 5 years or so. The goverment needs to keep their word and do what they said they will do in supporting the delegates. They are going out there to represent their country and should be fully prepared.

Apart from this guys, This time belongs to Gabby. She has left to represent the country. Let the foucs be on her for the moment. She has worked so hard and deserves to be recognise for that. I hope she returns as Miss World 2008.

Yall know im Miss Critique, after really taking in the pics i gotta say i dont like her makeup. that shade of lipstick is no t very flattering. Hope this is not what it looks like in SA.
I actually think Gabby is more beautiful with a toned down, and almost-bare look. And she needs a nude lip...or at least something darker than this.
But she is still my MW. I think she is one the of the best MW reps we ever had

I noticed in her last pics especially the one with the silver dress that her makeup made her look a lot older. i know with photo and tv makeup it needs to be alot stronger cuz the flash and lights and stuff but she does look better toned down! Lets see what will happen in SA!

Venezuela Beauties Nip, Tuck Their Way to Miss World, Universe
By Adriana Brasileiro

Nov. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Eva Ekvall says she was 17, a little overweight and dreaming of winning enough to buy a car when she entered her first beauty contest. Plastic surgery was the last thing on the young Venezuelan's mind.

Then she met Osmel Sousa, the Pygmalion of her country's beauty industry. Three months later, weighing 10 kilograms (22 pounds) less, her nose reshaped, and with breast implants, Ekvall was crowned Miss Venezuela.

``All of a sudden I was losing a lot of weight, so I needed boobs,'' said Ekvall, now 25, who went on to take third place in the 2001 Miss Universe contest. ``My nose looked bigger on my thinner face, so I needed a nose job,'' she said. ``Osmel just kept saying, `Oh, don't worry, we can fix this and that. Everything will be fine.'''

Venezuela has won more major international beauty competitions than any other nation. Much of the South American country's success can be attributed to Sousa's skills in preparing contestants, from how to walk, smile and talk, to choosing cosmetic surgeries.

Cuban-born Sousa, 60, who has run the Miss Venezuela franchise since 1981, is responsible for most of the country's five Miss Universe, five Miss World and five Miss International titles. He openly encourages surgery.

``This isn't a nature contest,'' Sousa said in an interview as contestants in swimsuits and high heels practiced choreography for the 2008 Miss Venezuela pageant, which took place in Caracas on Sept. 10. ``It's a beauty contest, and science exists to help perfect beauty. There is nothing wrong with that.''

Plastic, Dental Surgeons

Owned by TV station Venevision, the Miss Venezuela Organization numbers a plastic surgeon and a dental surgeon among its full-time employees. Dayana Mendoza, the reigning Miss Universe, is one of Sousa's protegees.

``Venezuela has been able to create a production line of beauty queens like no other country,'' said Ines Ligron, director of Miss Universe Japan, in a telephone interview from Tokyo. ``Nothing is improvised in Miss Venezuela; everything is calculated. The girls are sculpted and rigidly trained.''

Arthur Caplan, director of the University of Pennsylvania's Center for Bioethics questions Sousa's endorsement of aesthetic surgery.

``No surgeon can say that giving breast implants to a 17-, 18-year-old for beauty reasons is ethical,'' Caplan said by phone from Philadelphia. ``It's terrible that these pageants are turning into plastic surgery competitions and are no longer about real beauty.''

Surgery Not Banned

Surgical enhancement is permitted and is common among contestants, said Paula Shugart, president of the Miss Universe Organization, a joint venture between billionaire real estate developer Donald Trump and NBC Universal Inc.

``We don't encourage it, but we don't prohibit it either,'' Shugart said by phone from New York. ``Miss Universe in the 21st century wants to be a reflection of the world we live in, so we really don't have a problem with contestants that had some kind of procedure done.''

Sousa, who calls the enhancements ``touchups,'' runs a program to groom contestants. To get there, candidates need to catch the eye of Sousa or one of his scouts at the hundreds of fashion shows and beauty pageants they attend annually.

Around March each year, 300 young women head for Quinta Miss Venezuela, a salmon-pink villa with white iron gates where Sousa runs his boot camp. There, they come under the scrutiny of Sousa, his assistant Gabriel Ramos, dental surgeon Moises Kaswan and plastic surgeon Peter Romer. The three comment on the aspirants' flaws and suggest what can be done to create a winner.

Soft Voice

Fair-haired and blue-eyed, Sousa speaks with a soft voice.

``You are chubby and your nose is crooked,'' he said in a meeting with a Quinta Miss Venezuela candidate last year, which was recorded on video. ``And your teeth -- Ugh! We need to do something.''

About 60 are selected to undergo training. It lasts from three to six months at the villa in Colinas de Los Caobos, the Caracas neighborhood where Venevision's studios and headquarters are also located.

As well as surgery and weight-loss programs, the organization provides coaching in modeling, runway presentation, dancing and English. It pays all expenses, and in return receives 20 percent of any eventual winner's earnings during her reign.

`A Rare Artist'

``Osmel is a rare artist,'' said Mendoza, 22, whose prizes for winning the Miss Universe title included a $30,000 tiara with diamonds and pearls, and an apartment on Park Avenue in New York plus living expenses during her yearlong reign. ``He transformed my life.''

Mendoza also received a two-year scholarship to the New York Film Academy's acting or filmmaking programs, a full wardrobe and shoe collection and a personal stylist. The prizes are worth $500,000, according to the Miss Universe Organization, which employs the titleholder during her reign.

Mendoza started working as a model at age 15 and left a job with Elite Model Management in Milan to participate in Miss Venezuela and then Miss Universe. She neither confirms nor denies having had plastic surgery, saying people should do what makes them feel good.

Daniel Slobodianik, the Miss Venezuela surgeon for three years until 2007, says he operated on Mendoza, enlarging her breasts, reshaping the tip of her nose and removing excess fat around her knees with liposuction.

Concept of Beauty

``Yes, I did Dayana and so many others that I can't even remember,'' he said at his clinic in the upscale Santa Paula neighborhood of Caracas, while four young women flipped through fashion magazines in the waiting room.

Sousa's concept of beauty could be seen in the similar upturned noses of most of the 28 contestants at September's Miss Venezuela pageant.

``I've had an idea of the perfect woman in mind since I was a boy, and later on, working in advertising, I drew that woman over and over again for my clients,'' Sousa said as he sketched a female face on a sheet of paper.

Beauty contests are part of Venezuela's culture, and its success is a source of national pride, Slobodianik said. Each year, thousands of beauty pageants take place around the country, some in prisons, schools and army barracks.

Goal in Life

Girls in Venezuela grow up thinking that being beautiful is the most important goal in life, and are disappointed when they realize they don't fit their country's aesthetic ideal, says Xiomara Rivero, a 32-year-old manicurist.

``This is the worst place in the world to be ugly,'' said Rivero, who works in one of the hundreds of beauty salons in Caracas's Las Mercedes neighborhood.

Outside the Caracas stadium where the 2008 Miss Venezuela show was being rehearsed, Denise Trujillo, 18, tried to persuade security guards to let her through the glass doors.

Tottering on 10-centimeter (4-inch) heels, the tall, slim, brown-eyed brunette said she wanted to hand photos of herself to Sousa.

``I know I have potential, I have what Osmel wants,'' said Trujillo, who works as a waitress. ``I may need a few touchups, but he will help me.''

I cant believe Im saying this, but I think Peter should just give up the franchises. Its just too much for one person to handle. Why, in 2008, after 2 MU, 1 MU, several finalists and semi-finalists AND hosting MU is this man still on the radio..and chasing down officials, BEGGING for money.
Its just wrong.
If they dont recognize what a showing at these pageants can do for our country then so be it.
He has done his best, he has made his mark.But I find it utterly shameful its still coming down to this.

They must want Peter and his group to give it up so they could put a friend. Then you would see the amount of money they giving out, of which half going in the friend's pocket and the rep getting the sh..ty end of the stick.

I wish the T&T government would place more emphasis on prommoting the country rather than promoting themselves. It`s a shame so much potential and no one willing to let it be untapped. Well save for a few. The only time they apperntly get involved is when there is an actual win. Sucks Good Luck Gabby I know you will make every Trinidadian proud.

Miss World $$ woes
Elias seeking $300,000 more for T&T rep
Kristy Ramnarine kramnarine@trinidadexpress.com





Miss World T&T Gabrielle Walcott will leave for South Africa today to prepare for the 2008 Miss World competition, although the Trinidad and Tobago Pageant Company is still short by approximately $300,000 to cover her expenses.

Pageant Company director Peter Elias told the Express yesterday that he had no choice but to make alternative arrangements after the Ministry of Community Development, Culture and Gender Affairs failed to uphold its promise of assisting Walcott for the event.

He said it costs between $350,000 to $400,000 to prepare one delegate for a competition. Minister of Community Development, Culture and Gender Affairs, Marlene Mc Donald, he added, had assured her support to them earlier this year.

"I met with the minister in May at a dinner which was attended by Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Earl Nesbitt, Brian Lara, reigning Miss World Zi Ling Zhang and former Miss World Giselle La Ronde West and others. The minister gave her assurance of support," Elias said.

"Tell me what does that mean? We didn't go to Miss Universe in 2007 and the only reason I'm back in it is because I was promised support."

Walcott was crowned Miss Trinidad and Tobago World in February at the Zen nightclub in Port of Spain. Anya Ayoung-Chee was also crowned Miss Trinidad and Tobago Universe at the same pageant, and went on to compete at the Miss Universe 2008 in Vietnam.

The Miss World 2008 event was supposed to take place in Kiev, Ukraine, in November. However, the pageant was rescheduled to December 13 with South African as the new venue.

Elias said he had in fact received two payments from the ministry since Mc Donald's promise, but this was used to fund the competition expenses of two former pageant delegates-Valene Maharaj and Ayoung Chee-and the early preparation of Walcott.

"We received a payment of $100,000 in June, one day before our delegate (Ayoung Chee) left to compete and we received a second payment of $100,000 in late August," he said.

"Since February, I've been calling to find about the rest of the money but we are not getting any correspondence or information from the ministry. After not being able to get money from the ministry we approached the Sports and Culture Fund of the Office of the Prime Minister and we received $280,000 in July."

A frustrated Elias, who has been in this position before, added: "I was asked if the ministry trusts me. I have every bill from this year and from past years of working on the pageant.

"I'm not doing this for me. It's about promoting the country. If this type of promotion is not important to Trinidad and Tobago let the team know. With that type of money the return of this investment could be a windfall, in other words if we do well it could be a jackpot."

What an assinine move by Ms. Mc Donald. It is amazing how beggarly and cheap the T&T government is. The exposure that Peter Elias and Associates have given brand T&T is phenomenal since their inception. They litterally are spending pennies considering the international exposure T&T is getting.

I guess we will be a no show at MU08. Pete, Adrian and Alyson, I backin' yuh all de way. I pray that you guys don't give up the franchises because we will be in a mess if that happens.

As one of my European friends said "the worst government are run by black people"-Thank you Ms. Mc Donald for proving me wrong when I disagreed with this statement. I guess when you have been living in the gutter with gutter mentality and gutter standards-even the muck and grime looks normal even if you get a Government post.

I can't believe how low she is. She is garbage to me-whoever wants to get upset with me, go right ahead. I am fed up with these a$shol#s running everything into the ground. What the f*ck are we paying taxes for-oh yes, for Manning to live in a mansion, fly around in a private jet and spend millions to drive non-T&T nationals around the da*b place-Talk about jack a$ses to the max. I guess Mc Donald spent the da*b money on Mc Donalds-I wish she would get her fat a#$ off her neverending lunch break and start doing her job. I am freakin' mad at how she loves to treat PE&A and our representative like garbage when her overweight, cholesterol-laden a$# doing nothing to improve the image of the country.
As usual though, they will all line up to take pictures with MU or MW when we win and act like she was our rep's closest friend. I truly hope she reaps what she sows-What a complete havoc of a monstrosity she is-dam# liar. They should fire her trifling as#!

Well its typical...not surprising at all so why even get your blood pressure up.
thats the way they move- pageants, sports you name it.
success- then they jump of the bandwagon, plan cheesy welcomes at the airport and put on their best suits for a photo-op.
And its so sad that T & T has been so successful in the past, even hosted a MU and we are still in this situation. Its messy, very very messy and I`m sure very discouraging for Peter. Maybe he should forget about the government and find other ways to raise money in the future.
I think of the system in Venezuela, and how these girls dont have to worry about a thing.
But I know everything will work itself our smoothly. think positively...
you sure that some harsh words for the minister.

How could they do this to PE&A again. The team has worked so hard to promte T&T internationally. This is such a shame. What a disgrace!. I did not believe we would of been back at this again so soon. it seems only when someone does good you see some kind of support, but not for very long either. its just been a year since Valene's great showing at Miss World. PE&A have done extraordinary well. it will be such a let down if they cant continue doing the wonderful job they have done for so long. Why dont the goverment keep their word and do what they said they will do. I also hope Gabby wins the zmiss World crown and ask them why was it so hard to give her the help she needed. The help they promised!

...if the CCN group, which has so much resources and money had to relinquish the MT&TUniverse franchise because they were losing money running it what the hel# could Peter do that he has not done already-really what? With all due respcect, who he have to fu#k? Really, with that fat, lazy-ass, lying bi$#h running things in that ministry it a shock they could do anything right. Remember what they did for MU2007, they announced to the public that funding would be provided for MU2007 about a month and a half before the pageant kick off but it was only when delegates start departing for Mexico they finally contacted PE&A to talk about support. I am fed up with this level of mediocrity, small-mindedness and third-world mentality in T&T. They should fire her as%. What a consumate bit$h! I am sorry, any respect that I had for that office is gone. It would be better if dog and cat were in government because they have more sense.

Peter Elias and Associates, you know we love your entire team. If you decide to relinquish both franchises I support the move. I want to see who as# could step up and hold on the either franchise for more than 3 years? If CCN could not do it then who the fu#k going to do it? I guarantee you within 5 years it will be back in the hands of PE&A. Dump the franchises and let everyone know that fat-as# Mc Donald, who big like a fast-food outlet her dam# self, f*ck it up.

We cant even say to Peter to seek assistance from the private sector b/c they did that and no one wanted to help.. My god. I thought funding would have continued.

I hope this matter is resolved asap even if the honourable Prime Minister has to step in as in some cases...

Have faith...

...I have been a pageant fan for too long keeping my mouth shut. Yes people are think it is petty to call Mc Donald names but I don't think we are dealing with an adult-must be a small child with no sense of right and wrong. I wholeheartedly believe that if Peter Elias cannot be given a legally binding written and notarized pledge of funding for "X" number of years they should dump both franchises immediately.

It is very easy for anyone to come on this board and say "hopefully things work out." I am sorry, but maybe I am the only one who recalls Peter's interview a couple years back where he sounded totally off the wall -it was so frustating that I think he was losing his mind. Really, nobody realizes how much work these people do and they always go beyond what is expected of them as franchise holders because they genuinely love what they are doing and want to see T&T shine on an international stage.

For me, talking time is over. Peter Elias has too much class, intergity and dignity to be treated like garbage. DUMP THE FRANCHISES PETE!

SINCE SHE WANTS ATTENTION LETS GIVE IT TO THIS MAC-TRUCK, I MEAN MARLENE.




Photo Credit: T&T Newsday

WHY DOES SHE HATE PETER ELIAS:
1. He works with little resources and somehow accomplishes much with it; the only "little" think in Marlene's life is the time she spends doing her job
2. He keep receipts, records, and has a set plan; she says what she wants and does what she wants whenever she feels like it, without any sense of responsibility and accountability.
3. Peter Elias has integrity; the T&T hater Marlend obviously does not.
4. Peter Elias only permits fit women to enter MT&T; Marlene is as big as the entire Magnificent Seven
5. Peter Elias is white; Marlene is black and loves to see a white man beg.

I know everyone must be in shock but really, what does Ms T&T hater have to say for herself. I hope people start to say something to her stupid a*s. I don't care if funding arrives tommorrow-this nonsense should have never happened. THEY NEED TO FIRE MARLENE Mc DONALD-SHE IS A BLATANT LIAR AND DOES NOT HAVE THE NATIONAL INTEREST AT HEART. SHE IS JUST A POWER HUNGRY FREAK THAT DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO ACT LIKE A RESPONSIBLE PERSON IN AUTHORITY. THEY NEED TO FIRE HER PRONTO. SHE HAS NO INTEGRITY AND HONOR AND HAS BROUGHT HER OFFICE INTO DISREPUTE. STOP INSTITUTIONALIZING DISHONESTY AS IF IT IS A VIRTUE TO BE PRESERVED. WE HAVE TOO MANY LAZY POLITICIANS IN T&T AND SHE IS JUST A FINE EXAMPLE OF THAT.

Its a bad situation Trini, agreed. But calm down. I think its all getting to be a bit much...and childish.Sure I think its quite lame what this excuse of a ministry is doing, but go easy with the name calling and bashing. at the end of the day ( i remember you mentioned this a few months ago about miss tnt delegates who come to this board and read the messages) the dear minister is someones wife, mother etc.
At the end of the day Peter has a choice. Either continue, or dont.

Miss PR has already departed for London. She will arrive in SA on Thursday ahead of the other delegates who are expected on Saturday and Sunday. I guess she is going to grab some early attention-good marketing strategy especially since she is not one of the top 5 beauties from the Caribbean region this year.

I know that I have said I always get nervous when I hear Meiling is designing a pageant gown but I have to say that this piece from her 2006 collection would be fit for any beauty pageant stage provided the lady wearing it is around 6 ft tall. Love the fluidity of the fabric and the perfect blend of modern and romantic/classic elements.

kinda reminds me of the gown oxana wore. I like the gown but i wont put it on a miss t&t, it can get get lost very easily in the sea of white gowns that are ever present in pageants. i wish Rhianna had gone though, she would have definitely made a bigger splash than nasma. btw what ever happened to kelly bute?

Pics during the 2 Miss Ukraine pagants she participated in in 2008:










These pics are just to ensure that we do not get tunnel vision. Ukraine is the one to beat but we finally have a MT&T who facially could win and who also seems to have the overall persona and right looks to be a wonderful MW winner. However, Ukraine looks almost unstoppable. Gabby needs to nail all her interviews big-time in order to win and she better be flawless onstage because as we can all see Miss Ukraine is going to SA looking for a win. Interview! Interview! Interview! I can't stress that enough for Gabby-this is where she can seal her fate for the MW title.

...a little birdie told me that the opening outfits for MW08 are being done by a pageant outfit with whom Mrs. Morley is good friends with. It will be interesting to see if it is true-if it is then their short but cute rep is in and T&T and Bahamas will have their work cut out to make the semis.

PB, yuh eh easy yuh know. Anyways, if it turns out to be true then Brit is guranteed one of the 10 places based on "merit" -So that leaves nine for the other 100+ delegates to compete for. On merit though, DR, Bahamas and T&T look like they are top 15 worthy and Martinique looks promising but I have to see more.

Over on the Jamaican Star forum, someone who apparently is at least in the know, is predicting a top 5 for Brit after the "Jamaican inspired and designed OPENING NUMBER." I know Bob Marley is popular in SA. As I have said before, T&T and Bahamas have their work cut out. In my opinion, Jamaica is going to be a top 15 semi-finalist based on the fact they are doing all the opening outfits and 2 of their supporters are on the judging panel.

Jamaica is officially top 20 in BB and a top 15 semi-finalist. Info posted on the Pageantmania forum from someone currently residing in Jamaica is that the opening outfits for MW are being designed by Jamaican outfit Uzuri (or however you spell it) who have been the designers for MJW for years, and who have just acquired the Miss Jamaica franchise. Suddenly, Brit is in top 5 contention. Pray for Gabby folks! -we have no idea what goes on behind closed doors when the judges debate among themselves who should be the regional winner-that's the reality of the situation.

No surprises at the top; overall this is how the pre-arrival bets are:
1. Ukraine (firmly the outright fav)
2. Spain
3. Ecuador
4. Mexico
5. Trinidad and Tobago
6. Dominican Republic
Strangely, this is my exact list of the six women who I feel based on pre-arrival pics are the ones who can realistically win Miss World.

Also, I am elated to see that Bahamas is among the top 15 bets. I can't wait to see how Martinique looks in SA. These are my top 4 Carribbean pics: T&T, DR, Bahamas and Martinique. If rumors are true about who is designing the opening outfits for MW08 then I expect another C'bean nation to place.

I know it was too good to be true-I don't have Mexico as my top 6 pics (she is 7th)-Russia is in 5th and Gabby is in 4th on my personal list. I hope she is working her tail off and praying just as much. DR seems to be the overall fav among pageant fans but I think Gabby has what it takes to top the region and the crown is within her reach.

ON ANOTHER MORE SOMBER NOTE-EVERY YEAR SINCE PE&A HAVE BECOME A REALITY (SINCE 2003) THEY HAVE HAD AT LEAST ONE PLACEMENT AT A MAJOR INTERNATIONAL BEAUTY PAGEANT-THE BALL IS NOW IN GABBY'S COURT. I HOPE SHE WINS. SHE SEEMS LIKE A GREAT FIT FOR THE MISS WORLD ORGANIZATION.

Hey folks, so in leaving the Missosology forum I posted today the theread "Please delete my account on November 3rd 2008" and to my suprise it was totally deleted. Lucking I saved a copy so for people who wanted to know why I left, here it is... (Please note "Phenom" is a Trini poster)

"Thank you to everyone who has visited the MT&T section of the forum. I had a blast supporting my delegates on the forum. However, as time has progressed, it is apparent that my presence on this forum is no longer a positive experience. I am leaving the forum on Nov. 3rd 2008, so I just wanted to say goodbye and let you all know my reasons. Firstly, I am fed up with having to "defend" my delegates, my compatriots and myself-really, I thought this forum was for us to get together to talk about what we love but it takes too much energy to be here. Secondly, we all know Mario is the instigator but he is never put in check. In fact, blame is always put on the people he is terrorizing. Hence, this charged, biased, vindictive air is allowed to continue. Thirdly, the moderators are biased but I guess if you are not from Trinidad and Tobago and Bahamas, you probably have no idea what I am talking about. Lastly, I had the mistaken notion that Ricardo, who was exposed as MU100BC, had learned from his experience. However, after a recent post on this forum in which Mr. Bhunjun clearly states that Phenom and myself instigated this who affair-it is apparent to me that trying to be a normal, sane, person on this forum is impossible if you are educated and accustomed to a certain level of maturity (and I adjure you to not make this previous statement an issue-yes it's a strong statement but if you can avoid getting emotional you can at least appreciate the truth in what I said). My post history on this forum is testament to myself that I never instigated any attack on Mario-in fact, it will show that over time, it is Mario's attacks (call it what you want) basically forced me to stand up for myself. As expected, the moderators sided with their friend Mario and posts where edited as Mario saw fit. It is only lately I decided to take the advice of a former professor who said that when dealing with a fool you need to speak to him in the language he understands. Again, blame was placed on the Trini posters for what transpired thereafterwards. I can no longer continue in good conscience on this forum because Mario is like a poison-I don't know how to be angry or hate someone/a country continuously-it just does not make sense. Additionally, the fact that Ricardo can condone such behavior by Mario, tells me he has not changed for the better either. I don't appreciate any dark skinned delegate from my country being referred to as "sh*t" on the forum, and pretty much know what word he must used when speaking about her. Mario has used racist and prejudiced words on the forum and continues to do so when he want to with an expected "I'm sorry" when he is called on it yet he reverts back to the same behavior constantly. I can't see how Ricardo defended him and then blamed Phenom and I for the entire animosity on the forum.

Please delete my account on Novermber 3rd. I am in the process of posting some of my previous pics on another forum. I would hope that you all could afford me a few days to complete that process. My decision is not up for discussion. In closing, I would like to thank all the people who contributed to the T&T threads. I really appreciated it. The forum has a fantastic lay out thanks to Ricardo's hard work but in my opinion too many immature, biased people are in control of the forum. I hope you can appreciate my candor at the very least. All the best to you all!"

I have been permanently banned from Missosology because I was "trying to tarnish the name of the forum." I wish they would just delete the account though but I guess they don't want to make it obvious and of course I spent a good amount of time and energy building up the T&T section of that forum. I would be happy if they deleted it though-I don't want a shred of T&T on that forum.

What the heck did you do? I guess they cleaning house with all the Trinis. You know after the MU1000BC fiasco, I still gave them a chance thinking they would change but these people are just stuck in their ways. They are so unprofessional. I sincerely hope Peter Elias and Assoicated stop all contact with these people-and no I am not talking out of emotion-really, these people cannot act like clear-thinking adults. I gave them a chance to grow and what did they do with it? I don't care if we never see a Trini in their hot picks again-we always have to fight to get the attention we deserve and that will always be the case. We don't need Missosology to market our girls. Gabby is the perfect example-we finally give them the type of beauty their small minds could appreciate and they still have issues with how the lady rocks-I suggest changing her sash to another country's and you just have to watch those negative comments disappear. Really these people are sick. We are too educated and mature for that forum-they will never be comfortable with us there. Period!

You did the right thing! Last year Mario either called Miss TnT a C...... or said it have plenty of C.... in Trinidad. When I posted that the C word is just as bad as the N word my thread was deleted and no one told Mario to apologized. As you said you don't need to promote TnT on that forum.

The joy of Motherhood
By Lorraine Waldropt

Saturday, November 1st 2008




Kenisha Thom-Selvon and her husband Corey Selvon pose with their daughter Saamantha. PHOTOS: DEXTER PHILIP

Just recently former Miss Trinidad and Tobago Kenisha Thom-Selvon added another crown to her collection.

This one was different though, nothing like the others.

Representing one's country internationally was the epitome of patriotic pride, a childhood dream come true. And, being a finalist in the top five of the Miss World 2004 and placing in the top seven in the Miss Universe Competition in 2006 definitely put the icing on the cake for the Tobago-born Thom.

But nothing, she says, beats the ultimate prize of becoming a mother.

A year and ahlf ago, she felt nothing could compare to the bliss she felt on becoming Mrs. Selvon a year and half ago, marying Corey Selvon.

But all these moments pale in comparison to the joys of motherhood.






At her HGTV- nspired designer home in St. Augustine,Thom says words cannot describe her emotions when she first set her eyes on her precious Saamantha.

"Honestly, I was tired at first, labour pains still overcame me. But when I held her for the first time there was this flood of emotions- something difficult to explain happened inside my head. Just saying I was happy or satisfied pays no justice to how I felt, it was much more," she says,misty-eyed and clearly still experiencing the baby bliss of a new mom.

Thom had a difficult pregnancy - to the point of complete bed rest in her final trimester and she gives thanks and credit to her husband, mother and other family and friends for their support and who helped make the journey a bit smoother.

"Without my Mom, other family and friends this phase would have been unthinkable. I didn't know this thing (childbirth and pregnancy) was so hard but I'm glad for where it has brought me. Saamantha is my gift from God. "She was worth it all. Now I understand the pain that mothers, who agree to adoption prior to birth experience,feel when their babies are born. It's hard to separate yourself from a part of you, especially when you hear the first cry," she says.

And nothing compares to the reality of pregnancy, and nothing prepraes you for it, not the picture painted by friends, not books or Lamaze classes, she also says.

Now, with a new baby on board, life has certainly changed for the 25-year-old WASA employee.

As she cooed and cuddled her bundle of joy, she says breastfeeding is a priority for her, and a duty she intends to carry out for at least a year.Â

And a feisty four month-old,Saamantha, now at the grabbing and reaching stage, keeps Thom on her feet, but happy.

"Caring for her can be hectic but it's so rewarding. It's like mission accomplished, I always wished for a family of my own and now I have one - I feel so fulfilled. The joy I felt from Ms. World was different. Seeing my daughter's cute smile and anticipating her first tooth, her first step is so exciting," she says.

With a full plate of responsibilities now - mother, wife, Accounting Clerk at WASA, student at the University of the West Indies and an aspiring ACCA certified accountant - life is busy and rewarding for the former T&T Queen.

"When I return to work after maternity leave, I know that it will be life on the fast lane but I know that I can succeed with my determination, faith in God and my supporting cast. My friends at WASA; Karen, Estella, Donna and Mr. Grimes to name a few would definitely be at my side and that coupled with my eager mother-in-law turned babysitter makes me feel optimistic," she says.

But while some things have changed drastically, some facets of Thom's personality have remained the same. She is still the stately stylish woman T&T screamed for at the Ms. World Pageant, though a few pounds heavier.

Dressed in a black mid-thigh linen skirt, red blouse and black bolero jacket, matching makeup and gold bracelets,Thom remains as fashionable as ever.

"I grew up with three brothers so I was always a girl-next-door however I embrace my feminity fully. Dressing up and wearing stylish clothing is something natural for me, it's just who I am," she says.

Thom said she intends to hit the gym pretty soon and adhere to a home-cooked healthy diet. And here Thom reveeals another surprise on her already busy place.

"I always wanted to start my own business and since I am into healthy eating, Corey and I are starting a new restaurant in a few weeks time which promotes healthy recipes," she says.
END ARTICLE

Kenisha, for me, will always be the best example of what a MT&T should be. She set the standard that all future MT&Ts have to follow.

Hey Folks, I am officially "closing up shop" on the Missosology forum. I have moved over to the Pageantmania forum where the people are more mature and T&T and the Bahamas are not getting bashed. I will NOT BE DOING ANY MORE SUPPORT/THREADS OF MT&T ON THE MISSOSOLOGY FORUM-THEY WILL BE DONE IN THE PAGEANTMANIA FORUM.

...it was long overdue. I will start a tread with pics of Gabby in SA when the competition starts but I will probably disappear totally from that forum around the 26th Nov. I will be moving around quite a bit so internet access will be limited. I hope you guys will please post pics in the thread because I am expecting great things from Gabby for the Miss World 2008 final.

If we are going to have screenings next year then I think Makeda O'Neil should re-enter. She could make a great MT&T provided she get's over her stage fright that was quite obvious from the Mag7 2008 edition.

Yes Trini77, she looks really beautiful here. her stomach looks so flat. Looks like she has been hitting the gym. Could it be she is indeed going to MU next year?. I think she has a great chance of a top 10 at least. I hope that her communications skills have improved.

...I never thought it was a lack of intelligence but a horrendous amount of stage fright. She has done 2 pretty long interview with newspapers and one of them was on the day she screened and she sounded well-read and intelligent. However, she got on stage and like she could not think straight for the MT&T 2008 final.

...CHECK THE DAM* ATTITUDE AT THE DOOR PLEASE. THIS, "LET ME JUST TURN UP ON THE FORUM AND ACT LIKE I KNOW MORE THAN EVERYONE ELSE", IS CERTAINLY NOT APPRECIATED BY ANYONE WITH A BRAIN AND MANNERS ON THIS BOARD. Please show a bit more respect. We don't know who it was but she looked quite a bit like Makeda, hence the mistake. Give us the name instead of acting so condescendingly.

I am sorry if I come across as very harsh, but I have been on this board for years, and that includes about 6 months where I was the lone poster on here keeping the board alive and updated. As expected, as an international pageant is approaching, some "fans" suddenly appear on the board and have been know to act like a%$holes towards the very few stalwarts on this forum. I can't stand that nonsense anymore. If they want to behave like an a$s then by all means I will talk to them like one.

O.K. Everyone has their own opinions and this is mine so don't bite my head off if you totally disagree with me.
One of these will win:
1. Trinidad and Tobago
2. Ukraine
3. Dominican Republic
4. Russia
5. Ecuador
6. Spain

Semifinalists:
7. Mexico
8. Bahamas
9. Slovakia
10. Venezuela (no way could she win)
11. Namibia
12. SA (because she is the host; did not like her from MU and still don't)

Possibilities for the top 15 of the finals: India (really lacks spark to me but she has enough to possible sneak in if the gown in on-point given that MIs tend to interview well); PR and Jamaica (both totally don't deserve to be in the semis but they are Mrs. Morley's and Wilnela's perennial favorites; Expect to see Jamaica in BB top 20 and they might place PR in top model finals just to create the impression she has a competitive look); Peru (I actually like her look alot and would not mind seeing her in the top 15); Belize (want her to place but I am totally not confident that she will be prepared well to compete so I will be surprised if she places; however, beautywise she is defintely top 15 material), Martinique (will be interesting to see if she make it)

Special Mentions: Turkey and Norway

O.K. So there are about 110 delegates and I mentioned 20 so far. I totally expect to see 2 more strong competitors emerge during the actual competition (as usually happens every year). All the best to our wonderful Gabby.

Just of note, I am probably going to disappear from the forum about the 3rd week of November as I will be moving. Don't know yet if I am moving back to Trinidad though but if I do then I will be off the forum probably for an extensive period of time as I will be looking for work.

...the only reason I am not too confident about her placing in the finals is because they don't have a very good track record of delivering given that I thought they have had at least a couple of very beautiful ladies at both MU and MW in the past few years that did not place. Beautywise she is top 15 material though.

i agree with you smurgyrl, her speech is kind of annoying too. She really needs to change her tone of voice I think. In regards to her look. if she gets that body into shape, lose a few pounds. She can do good. But, like this. I dont see her representing T&T any time soon.

...but as I said before, we could do better. Even Cennette (I hope that's her name-the girl who I said had the Maggie vibe) is better, even though I agree that her face is her weak-point. For me, it is apparent that MT&TW/U09 will both be crowned next year so I hope we get someone with some pageant experience-the only available possibility is Makeda because since Sept. Valene disappeared off the radar so I assume she is at college. I know PE&A will have to over-hall her entire look and definitely add hair extensions and I am pretty sure the body and look will be on-point for MU (if she did become MU09) but Makeda's MAJOR PROBLEM at the 2008 edition of Mag 7 was that she was like a dear staring at the headlights in the black of night. She is very intelligent but has horrendous stage fright in my opinion when it comes to on-stage interviews. It is interesting that I had said she was another "Danielle Jones" when she was selected as a top 7 finalist-because as it turned out her failure to advance any further was hampered by her answer onstage (which was Dani's downfall at MU2004). I know alot of people view poor answer as a lack of intelligence but I think we can all agree that Danielle Jones had "plenty brains" and yet she gave the most assinine answer by a MT&T that I have yet to see paralleled on an international stage. If Dani had nailed it I thought she would have been MU or at the very least top 3.

I guess the big question that will be answered next year is whether Peter Elias and Associates have already identified a strong contender already for MT&TU that no one knows about. Valene was the last invitee that we know about and she was phenomenal. I did not get the impression this time around that any of the 7 ladies who made the finals of MT&T08 had been encouraged/invited to screen by anyone on the MT&T committee. This is a very dangerous positionn to take in my opinion but then at the same time I have to admit that there has always been at least one very strong delegate at every MT&TU edition since 1995.
1995-Arlene & Michelle
1996-no pageant-Michelle from previous year rep. us.
1997-Margot
1998-the best slate of candidates for MT&TU/W up to that point ever-Wendy, both Miss Photogenics and the lady who placed 3rd overall. Wendy and the two Miss Photogenics were all top 10 MU material and that was the best delegate for East Indian descent to ever grace a MT&T stage.
1999-what a disaster in terms of beauty-a bunch of petty faces but no-one competitive enough-only Amanda Jardine was worthy but the 2 miss photogenics from 1998 were way better.
2000-Heidi (one of the most beautiful MT&Ts ever-if she was top 10 I am pretty sure she would have easily made top 5)
2001-Alexia
2002-Rhian Vialva-everyone else should have been sent home-what the heck were the judges thinking with that top 3?
2003-Faye, Maggie, Leah
From 2004 to the present PE&A have gotten the winners more or less right in my opinion.

danielle jones in my view- even though im trini- did not deserve that spot. I just dont think she was strong, and there is no way even with the most amazing answer, would she have won.
Margot, Heidi, Faye, Wendy, Arlene were the best of the best. Rhian, at that time, was not ready, because she was very shy, was lacking that strong confidence and her speech was abit poor.
Cennette and June are just OK. Not standouts, im sure Peter will meet someone walking down the street who is stronger than both of them. There are so many models I see at Carnival time who can do well at MU/MW so hopefully he can scout a couple of them, dont worry.

...we disagree on Dani. To be quite honest, 2004 was one of the very few times that I had USA as my fav for the title-only 2008 comes to my mind in for USA ladies worthy of the MU title since 1995. Anyways, rumors are already circulating that PR will be the 2010 MU host. Peter Elias and Associates are going to have to "come good" this time with a tall, stunning delegate who can give the judges what they want in the interview-really, from the last few years I don't think intelligence is important as it used to be in the 1990s.

I agree with Trini77, I think Dani deserved her spot and could of done better if she had a better answer to her question. I also liked USA that year and had her as one of my favorites to win.

There was a rumor that croatia was going to host the pageant. I am very excitted to see who T&T is going to send.

...I have only read about PR being a strong possiblity for 2010 and so people expect PR to place very high or win in 2009. Like yourself, I can't wait to see who are MT&TU09 and MT&TW09. I HOPE GABBY IS MISS WORLD 2008.

Croatia has a bid in for next year. I thought you were talking about next year for Puerto Rico. I missed where you said 2010. If they are hosting in 2010 then they might do good at MU next year. Who is going to be MT&TU09!

I think June was good at MT&T needs to lose some weight but with some coaching she'll be alright. And Gabby is spectaculer gives me hope that i could actually rep T&T....cuz i'm 5'6.5" Ha. I wish her all the best and she'll surely bring home the crown and title. As for PEA they should really have the local leg earlier than the usaual it will give them much needed time to prepare the delegates. I'm rather excited to see who will be choosen next year.Maybe i'll actually get to see a delegate in person as i'm planning to screen. Anyway all the best to Gabbi and Anya did a fanstastic job.

...this is one of my personal quirks when looking at the MT&T delegates- I always look at how toned her arms are. June's arms look flabby. She need to literally lose at least 20 lbs if she plans to re-enter MT&TU-not a pound less.

Im just praying she never enters again. They are many other (better!!!) girls than her. like anya nathaniel or rhian vialva.
June is just okay. and again that speech is just way too bad. they will spend most of the time training her on how to answer questions

...in the Auntie Kim era, she would have been better than at least half of the MT&TU/W reps in terms of beauty. However, in this PE&A area she is really below the level of who PE&A usually have to train for MU/MW.

On another note, as I said in a previous post, MPU09 is 6 feet tall (saw somewhere where they had her height as 5'11" though-but either way)-we need a tall MT&T if we want to place in top 9 in the prelims and hope to crack the top 5. Gabby better win MW08 so that there is not issue about whether she should be sent to MU09. Really, all the most successful outfits crown their winners about 6 months or more before the int'al event-and that includes USA-because they elect state reps who are prepared before hand to compete at the national level which in my opinion is almost like a dry run for MU. Come on Pete, when are the screenings?

...would have to be groomed for a potential win because she has what it takes to make top 5 but she would need a boo job. Additionally, she always sounded intelligent when she spoke but I still think they would need like 6 months at least, to properly train her.

I see potential with her. But, I did not like the way she spoke. Maybe it is because she is still young. I do think that she needs a boob job and a little spunk to her personality. yes, they will need 6 months to a year to properly train her depending on how fast she learns.

if she has any plans of re-entering. She needs to lose some weight. I think if she do lose the weight and work on her speech she can do well. But, as I said if she continues to look like this she dont have much of a chance.

Don't bite meh head off for this, but I don't think lookwise that June is as bad as some make her out to be. She does however need to loose 20 lbs. However, if she is under 5'9" then I would not bother.

The new MPRU09 is 6 feet tall and a stunner-in my opinion she is a good fit for what MUorg would like. Personally, I hate her plastic nose and although she does have facial features that are reminiscent of Renata Stone (sorry about the spelling- you know the fromer MDRU) and last year's Crystal Stewart I still don't think she has the most beautiful face nor the strongest SS. However, she has about 7 months to prepare and so expect her SS body to be on-point for MU09 because the PR camp has not problem with removing ribs if they have to (although I don't think they would need to). PLEASE PE&A, DON'T CROWN ANYONE UNDER 5'9". I am still waiting to see another 6 ft stunner from T&T grace a MU stage.

Miss PRU09




Just a note-this lady is 6 feet tall (6'4" in heels) and even they knew not to make her wear a bolt of fabric like the MT&T committee did for Anya. Please design gowns that work for the lady first and foremost. The hottest trend is secondary.

...if MT&TW/U09 is next Feb then I hope PE&A have someone in mind who plans to screen already because Venezuela, PR, and Mexico are coming strong for 2009 at MU.
P.S. Anyone notice that all the MPR candidates usually all have the same nose.

...do you realize that alot of the delegates have the same smile onstage. PR is almost like a clone factory with MU2005 1st RU as their prototype. Anyways, alot of people are saying that she is MU2009 already and give that PR plans to bid for the 2010 hosting rights, everything seems to be in her favor. The MU judging panel is always skewed if you just look at the composition and that composite score is adding no credibility to the transparency for selection-Remember how different the SS scores were-a range from about 7.04 to 9.6(or above that). All you need is one vested interest in the judging panel and all the competition gets eliminated quietly. Peter Elias and Associates really have to come good if they want to win and they better send a top notch delegate this year before the pageant returns to a Latin American host, because then we might have no chance of making top 5.

Again I raise the question, why the he%l is there not at least one screening this year?

I see what you are saying. They seem to send girls who look alot alike. I dont know if she can win MU09 but she seems very competitive. as you have said PE&A needs ti send a stunner if they plan on placing in the top 9 preliminaries or winning. I would of liked to see the screening or atleast one held already this year. But, can we assume that maybe PE&A have already scouted some girls or someone?. Either way, T&T needs to send a super strong delegate who can win!

Gabby is consistently moving up in the odds-she started at 50 to 1 odds initially. I am not a betting person but to be quite honest, this is the first time I am extremely tempted to place a bet (even if it is 20 British pounds) on a win by T&T-I am that confident about Gabby's chances.

O.K. Maybe this is just me alone, but the thought that has crossed my mind more than once that Jamaicans prefer light skinned beauties or at least view light skin as more beautiful than dark skin but I was totally shocked to see that some Jamaicans do take this view to the extreme. I thought the vid was a little gross.

Gabrielle raises $600,000 for paediatric specialty ward

Gabrielle Walcott was born in Trinidad and Tobago on June 26th, 1984 (age 24). Hailing from Petit Valley, she is the eldest of three siblings, who are Heidi, Joshua and Sophie Walcott.

The 1.70 m beauty also pursued acting and theater arts at HB Studios in New York, USA.

An experienced Equestrian Show Jumper, Gabrielle also took up hobbies such as, dance, yoga, pilates, photography, hockey, art, and has always had a passion for acting and theater.

She is a long-time member and support of the Trinidad and Tobago Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, (the TTSPCA), and claims to have rescued 10 stray dogs and cats.

Gabrielle is preparing hard to achieve the second victory if Trinidad and Tobago at the 2008 Miss World contest. The country won the title in 1986, with Giselle LaRonde.

Describe yourself in one or two sentences:

I'm an island girl,warm, friendly and loving. I love to laugh, dance and meet new people.

Which three songs must be in your iPod?

-Andrea Bocelli's, "Because We Believe"

-Bob Marley's "Don't worry about

a thing"

-Bob Sinclar's "World Hold On"

Tell us about your "Beauty with

a Purpose" Project.

This has been a life changing experience for me. I've raised TT$600 000 (Trinidad and Tobago dollars/ US$100,000) for the first ever Paediatric Specialty Ward in the English Speaking Caribbean.

Because of Miss World's Beauty with a Purpose project, I searched for a very meaningful project and discovered a brand new non-profit organisation in my neighborhood called the Just Because Foundation.

I met the founders, two wonderful and inspiring parents who recently lost their son to a rare form of cancer. The JB Foundation in a very short space of time has done tremendous work to assist families with an ill one.

In my interactions, I learned that there were no dedicated wards for children with cancer in my country, and that presently, all children pediatric patients lived together in crowded rooms. Further more, the families and siblings of these young brave cancer patients were not able to visit regularly due to restrictions.

Working closely with them I was able to learn of an abandoned ward at one of our largest and most important hospitals and then convince the authorities who did not have budgets for such a specialised ward that I would raise the needed funds once permission was granted (this is a very abbreviated version of what transpired, in Trinidad we say 'it's all part of the course'..

Basic renovations have begun to the ward and we are awaiting final designs to implement and complete the project. I have never felt such a sense of purpose, and this has afforded me the 'true' understanding of Beauty with a Purpose.

I feel honoured to be a small part of an organisation and process whose objective is such.

What has been your most

memorable rainy day?

I can't help but think about this one particular rainy day when my family went hiking to a spectacular waterfall in our sister island of Tobago. On the way up, my Dad lost a part of his camera (photography is his favorite hobby) and was so disappointed.

After a wonderful day, on our hike back, he asked everyone to look out for the part (about the size of an M&M). This was literally looking for a needle in a haystack.

Being a Daddy's girl and wanting to please him as he was a little down, I prayed to St Anthony for help. I will never forget the look on my Dad's face when I came running with the camera part in my hand! He was so proud of me and much to my delight still tells that story to this day.

If you were invited to participate in the next NY Fashion Week, which fashion designer you would like to dress you?

Roberto Cavalli.His style is feminine, sexy and so luxurious!

Tell us about the nightlife in

your hometown.

In Trinidad we 'lime' it's a very popular word here used for getting together and hanging out with friends. We are a fun-loving people and so we like to lime anytime, anywhere.

There are lots of lounges, nightclubs, even street parties. I personally love night time beach outings or being 'down the islands' (there are these gorgeous little islands off of Trinidad which we refer to as 'down the islands')

I love being near the water and sand, being under the stars with a crackling bon fire, liming with close friends and family.

What has been your weirdest dream? Describe it.

I don't dream much, but recently had my wisdom teeth removed. I was really anxious because I've never had any surgery before, and this was to be performed while under anaesthetics.

The night before the surgery I dreamt that the surgery was going on, that the anaesthetics were being administered, that I got up out of my body and looked on at myself lying there and held my arm in an act of assurance and said "okay then, I'll be back, see you soon" and off I went.

Then, I heard people looking for me and yelling "She has to come back, where is she? "so I went back to the dentist's office and saw my family standing over me crying and said "wow, I better get back quickly"! I lay back down into my body and then I woke up and all was good. Very Weird!

Thankfully the surgery went well, though I looked like a chipmunk for about a week.

Where will the Miss World judges score you highest: interview, swimsuit or gown presentation?

I hope to score well in all categories. A little bias of course, but my Mom believes that the judges will score me highest in the interview, once of course my warmth shines.

What message you would like to send to the other Miss World contestants?

I can't wait to meet you all...to learn of our similarities and differences. I wish for us to be an amazing bunch of women, representing our countries to the best of our abilities, following our dreams! See you soon in South Africa!

Special thanks to Peter Elias.

She really looked stunning in SS. I know she has an unusual voice but she seems to be one of the more mature ones of the Synergy season 3 batch. If she got a boob job and really toned up I would say she has the makings of a MU body! Again, why are we always crowing MT&TU so late (3 months before the int'al event)?

...June was also one of the models for the Synergy final (strangely Makeda was no-where to be seen). With a boob job, about 15 lbs lighter and ALOT of toning especially of her thighs and abdomen she would be in top 15 contention. I especially love her height; if PE&A did not get the point at MU then Synergy, with all due respect, should have finally knocked it into their head that the taller ladies carry an evening gown way better than any short delegate, especially when you want to use alot of material and expect alot of fluidity when moving. She looked dam# hot in EG.

She resembles June, but stance & aura-wise she give me the Maggie vibe. She would need alot of grooming though but I am sure she could nail a Miss Universe prelim.

she does have a maggie stance. Good eyes Trini77. yes, she needs to lose some weight and maybe get breast implants. She sounds like she is very mature and knowledgeable. She needs a lot of preparation though. So far she is just ok.

...she is just o.k. right now but potential-wise she is way better than June. She would need at least 9 months to prepare. I don't understand why we can't crown our MU rep. at least in November or early December so at least she has about 6 months to prepare. I hope this is just a sign that PE&A have made at least one strong invite who has confirmed beforehand that she plans to screen. Both Anya and Gabby were well-traveled and well-studied so they could out-talk about 80% of the delegates at MU/MW if they were sent without training but at the end of the day, both of them are not perfect and they still needed at least 3 months of interview coaching at least to bring them to top competitive form. Not every "Wendy" or "Gabrielle" that turns up to screen is going to have a background that would have prepared her with enough life experiences and formal education as some of our more fortunate reps. We need to screen at least from the year before the international event.

I dont really like the way she looks in these pics. I dont think she will do well in MU or MW based on what i have seen.

Her body looks great in SS, but i have to admit im not a fan of her face. Dont think she will make the cut at any international competition. Her speech is also questionable. Thats one thing I noticed on the show, most of the people spoke so badly!

If you don't like the rules you are free to express yourself elsewhere... Again I did not create this site for folks to be mean or hostile to each other. No way would I want the contestants to feel degraded by comments placed on here...The people who want to represent TNT should feel proud to come to this site, constructive criticism is welcomed not destructive.
