KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent – The eight contestants in the Miss SVG pageant slated for Saturday have been reminded that only one of then will win and have been urged to accept the results of the show with stoicism.
“Looking at me are eight of the most loving, cooperative, well-behaved young ladies that I have had the opportunity to meet and to work with,” Cheryl Rodriguez, chair of the Carnival Development Corporation’s Beauty Shows Committee said at a media briefing Tuesday attended by the contestant.
“Keep it up. Don’t change after the results are announced [and] go backstage and start to quarrel ‘they cheat’ and this and that,” Rodriguez further said.
“Don’t go down that way. You know one girl must be crowned. Deal with it with dignity. You are queens. The fact that you pass through our hands, you are queens,” she further said.
“… you made it this far. Many girls would have dropped out because of the pressure. You know what you went through over these eight months,” she said.
The contestants are Miss Super Six Jolene Bentick of Sandy Bay, Miss Lotto Shanique Browne of Enhams/Glamorghan, Miss Mustique Company Limited Terranza Franklyn of Golden Grove, Chateaubelair, Miss Lime Carice Glasgow of Glen, Miss Agricultural Input Warehouse Kendra Homer of Walvaroo, Miss St. Vincent Brewery Limited Jovonne John of Lower Questelles, Miss Metrocint General Insurance Company Limited Dieta Tucker of Redemption Sharpes and Miss Jergens Aziza Williams of Upper Cane Hall.
