Other sectional winners were:
Best Skin Tone - Adrianna Bryan
Best Legs - Trishauna Clarke
Most Aware. - Rashida Beckford
The contest was aired live on TVJ and online which was a good thing since viewers got a chance to watch the event. Over all the production was of a low quality, as it lacks international flare. The event had no elements of Jamaica 50, which is a milestone
R&B singer I-Candy from Brick and Lace gave a performance which was not worthy for air play and wrong for such a prestige event. This was a national televised event where kids were watching
We hope organizer of the Miss Jamaica World Competition will starts to invest more into the pageant not only financially but time, to bring back the glamour and essence of what the event should be.
We want to congratulate Deanna Robins and wish her all the best in the upcoming Miss World.
