    congrats to odessa. But on my personal opinion marigot was supposed to get best talent

    This is one reason why when it’s time for regionals we come back home empty handed and embarrassed.

    Patrice Dorsette should have won best talent and costume i dont know where the judges minds were. Odessa hands down deserved the crown but not all the prices that were given to her. Kelcia Righton did not deserve best in costume there were a few other young ladies like contestant number one or Patrice Dorsette that should have gotten best in costume. Patrice Dorsette swim wear was almost bending with her skin tone who was that young lady’s adviser did injustice to her hence. her evening wear was a recycle dress from Miss Antigua 2013 contestant Miss Ann-Joulie Black just reconstructed with a different baseline. Ms Righton should have been place second then Ms. Dorsette then the queen Odessa. And why are members of the queen show committee complaining about Levi hosting abilities. Werent they the ones who had a say as to who is co-host of the show. That queen show committee needs a total overhaul.

    Congrats to Odessa, all the best in your reign. I just have to give my two cents, I see a trend on the choosing of Miss Dominica, I see throughout the years even from the start the persons on the fair side seems to be always the winner. I maybe wrong but I am sure a lot of us are thinking the same thing. Just my opinion. Patrice all the best of your undertakings, you are a well grounded person good things will come your way.

    Congratulations to all the participants and to the New Miss Dominica. I want to say congratulations as well to all who assisted in any areas and contributed to the success of the show. The organizers, the costume designers/builders, the talent coordinators, the speech writers and everyone who worked in one way or another with the contestants I say thank you.

    Keep the spirit of Carnival alive in making the National Queen Show bigger and better. We can make it a “can’t miss” show for the region.

    One Love Dominicans and May God continue to Bless The Commonwealth of Dominica!!!!

    mwenpamaley who ever u are u most be crazy to say u didnt see odessa getting a spot while watching the road to the crown program.i dont know what program u were watching but this lady has been excellent along with the general deportment and the way she spoke,afterall it is no wonder why she got the award for most intelligent.as for the show i believe she was consistent in every round.she was exceptional in TALENT, SWIMWEAR, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY QUESTION AN ANSWER.As for a costume i believe it was wonderful especially in the dark.As we all saw there was some difficulty with her dress and so it hindered her form walking properly,but her dress itself fitted perfect.I would like to advice her team to be very careful with dresses of that nature,and maybe avoid them in future shows.With that said i would like to wish her all the best and know she will do very well in future pageants.congrats to her sponsors also

      You to did not watch the road to the throne because she was always playing second fiddle to Kelcia before final show and miss photogenic? Come on give me a break.

        February 9, 2015

        ms photogenic doesnt necessarily mean the most beautiful from the pictures u can see her smile was genuine she enjoyed herself on stage and talent wasnt force it is ‘talent’ what one is good at what one does the best some ppl just pull talent out of thin air just because theres a talent round in the competition….kelsia is beautiful but thy covered her natural beauty with too muck makeup

    Congratulatons to you Odessa. You were absolutely wonderful. The way you held your composure when you realised the dress was too tight to walk in -oh!!-that was so admirable. You will be successful in whatever you choose to do if you keep that level of confidence and belief and determination. I’m not a friend or family member but I feel as proud as a mother. You have a role model in you. Let it shine.

    I myself had my eye on Beyandra Blanchard… I guess I was just looking at her beauty only. She really messed up that song she did for her talent.

    Odessa is a very intelligent young lady and I knew in the question and answer she would have sweep them. Well judged show.

  24. February 7, 2015

    Let me congratulate Odessa Elie on her success as queen . Looking back on the road to the crown , no one I believe would have considered her as even getting a spot . She’s in my view a model for young people , who may feel they don’t have what it takes to make or succeed . She was motivated and ambitious . On that note she answered her questions favorably and carried herself on the stage in satisfactory manner . Though few hitches with evening wear being too tight and almost slept twice on stage during walk , Odessa kept her hopes alive and maintained focus . Her talent was exceptional , didn’t think we had people this acrobatic in our country . Let me encourage our young people to read and research . Yes , we have the technology , but let’s use it not only for messaging , instagram , watsap etc , but take time to research as well so as to become better aware of what’s happening around us , as well in our country and region at large .

    • February 7, 2015

      I do support your fair comment and I share similar sentiments though many may like to differ . I compliment the young ladies for their courage . They were great . However , much of their problems as you said earlier is reading and research . I would want to believe along with stage preparations the answer and questions round was considered . Congrats to her chaperone and sponsors Miniya’s 7-11 and Big Edge financial Express , who ensured that she got the best and fullest support . I wish you well on your reign Odessa , and bare in mind the competition goes beyond here . Go on to do better than the previous and place us back to the top of the competitions regionally .

      • February 7, 2015

        Yeah ….ad the questions were poorly phrased too . Poor round .

      • Uplifter
        February 7, 2015

        Just an FYI she would have done way better in the regional competitions if she was given the opportunity. And so u know she did win her crown in some of the regional competions!!!!!

        February 7, 2015

        i was about to hit like then i saw “Go on to do better than the previous and place us back to the top of the competitions regionally” why cant we just be fully positive without bring down others? smdh
