Lights, camera and #selfies! Eleven teen Miss Bahamas Teenager Pageant contestants took to the stage with giggles and bright eyes…and I loved it!
There wasn’t a flawed beauty in sight at last night’s coronation, just visions of sparkly teen perfection. The competition begun with the most adorable opening number choreographed by Shavonia Turnquest. Check out the photo below, aren’t they simply gorgeous?!
While, of course, every contestant is a winner there were a few contestants that took home so extra special awards:
- Best in Swimsuit-Breanna Sands
- Best in Evening Gown- Breanna Sands
Breanna was sheer perfection in both evening gown and swimsuit prelims. Gracing the stage in an amazing royal blue evening gown, it was impossible for you to take your eyes off of her. The gown fit her like a glove, complimented her skin tone and she wore it with the upmost confidence. No dispute here, she’s a winner!
- Best in Costume- Kiara Diggiss
- People’s Choice- Kiara DiggissWe’ve seen flamingos, we’ve seen pirates, we’ve even seen the Bahama Parrot, but in National Costume, Kiara gave the pageant audience something totally different. It’s hands down the best costume I have seen Miss Universe Bahamas’ depiction of the straw doll. Fingers crossed that we see this amazing piece on an international stage.
Teen Top Model: Christinique Rolle
This lucky beauty landed a two year contract with the Bahamas’ top modeling agency PTG. Look out Miss Universe Bahamas, this girl is going to be a star!
Breanna, Kiara and Christinique snagged spots in the top 6 along with Chinasa Outten, Nerline Pierre and Sade Rolle. What can we say, here’s the true test of a queen…the final question! ( Cue horror music)
After what seemed like forever, ( though it was probably only 20 mins) the results came in and the top 3 placement were finally announced:
2nd Runner up: Breanna Sands
1st Runner up: Kiara Diggiss
Winner: Chinasa Outten
A huge congratulations to sixteen year-old Chinasa Outten on her major win. This teen queen is a bubbly gem and she’s really smart…no really, she has 3.99 gpa! A heart of gold and smile that’s even brighter, she is going to knock the socks off the judges at Internationals. I’m thrilled to follow her journey!
To be perfectly honest, I could have been happy if any one of those three won. They were superb performers and consistent throughout the entire competition and you know how much I love a consistently good contestant.
Congrats to all of the winners and a hearty applause to each of the contestants, the pageant was an absolute success!
