    • Pageant Judge
      July 7, 2014

      Because winning talent and interview categories does not determine a contestant victory. One has to be consistent in all rounds. She more than likely placed low in Swimwear, which she was not at her best by the way and also, she probably came out after Francine in the Evening Wear category, thus making her overall points lower. Francine on the other hand must have been second in ranking in the categories she did not win, thus making her points higher……. and that’s how the shows are judged. Remember consistency wins a show!

    Very Good Francine and congratulations! I am so proud of you. I lament the fact that since you won Miss Dominica 2014 there has been very little recognition of you. You have made yourself proud and I am very proud of you. You are one of my most humble and favourite Miss. Dominicas. Do not let anything dampen your spirt. Believe in God and yourself.

    DNO was there a special talent named Miss St. Lucia? I saw Miss St. Lucia – Miss St. Lucia mentioned twice. What talent did Miss St. Lucia win?

    Congratulations to Miss Dominica for brining home the crown. We are proud of you.

    Dominica is being prominently featured and Congratulated this week all around the Caribbean and elsewhere. We are the news maker of the week and months and years to come because of the important move to the CCJ. Well done to the PM and the Government for representing us well. You will go down in history as a Government who knows what is best for its citizens and country and does it.

    We have the CARICOM Anthem won and beautifully performed by Ms. Henderson.

    We have our PM as its Chairman.

    We have T20 West Indies Cricket at the Windsor Park Stadium

    We are Blessed Dominicans.
