    Get over it “fan of the queen show”!

    Now is the time to suppor the young lady Marcia Baptiste who now our Miss Dominica 2010 in all her endeavours, as by all accounts she was the best candidate by all accounts and a well deserving one as well, as I was at the show and for the most part the judges actually did a brilliant job which is sort of historical.

    Chin up love!

    i wanna say 1 ting here..to HI– had u been following d queen show interviews & pre appearances, u would know that someting went wrong with d kalinago rep last minute..when i say last minute i mean d day b4 or d night of d show,that caused her down fall..she had been d best on all her interviews & gave d best responces..4 xample, on marpin when they asked if d date of carnival should be change, all d contestants was like ‘ yes change it & no not to cahnge it’ where as she said 1st of all we need to analyse d pros & cons of changin or keepin d date then conclud..
    someting must have gone wrong wit her very clos to d show dats y she didnt capture d crown..marcia should consider herself very lucky.

  25. alas, crabs in a barrel
    February 15, 2010

    we should be ashamed of the way we show ourselves, our posts are visible to the world and that is the kind of perception we giving them about us. when will we grow up, we don’t have to stay quiet if we’re not pleased but the way we talking about our fellows alas,,,, is really crabs in a barrel eh.. well about 60% of us, grow up man!!!!

  26. KALINAGO TO DE BONE
    February 15, 2010

    First i must say this was a great show. Well done girls. To this ignorant person who has all this negative comments about the kalinago people let me say you must have a degree in foolish, stupidty and just plain ignorant and i guess you must have past these with flying colours. Lets not forget if it was not for de stupidy of some of your ancestors black people would never have gone through the struggles they went through. Instead of fighting for their freedom they submitted to slavery, sold each other to slavery, while we de kalinagoes fought to preserve this beautiful land of ours of which we are all so proud of. Lets not forget in your struggles for freedom we fought alonside our black comrads and today some of you have nothing better to say rather than be thankful. Its for this reason today Dominca cant move forward as it should be just becuase of all this back biting and fight ing among ourselves. So PLEASE if you have nothing better to say just go flush your face down the toilet.

    how slow are YOU?

  31. A true dominica in the u.s.a
    February 14, 2010

    In response to Hi’s non-sensical post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You are more unintelligent than the Kalinago people. First of all you do not even know your history. These people were not given the same opportunity that other Dominicans were given because they were placed on a reserve like outcasts on the island that they first occupied. So shut up.

    Secondly you cannot even spell and you do not even know grammar. Before you intend to post a comment that the world may read do some homework first.

    Thirdly, have your ever heard the proverb that education is not wisdom? Anyone can study books in order to survieve in whatever particular field that he or she is interested in. It’s a matter of survival. The kalinago people were the first inhabitants in Dominica and therefore they are very wise. Wisdom surpases intelligence in the sense that one can have intelligence but lacks the wisdom to use that intelligence. That’s why the scriptures say get wisdom and with all thy getting, get understanding. The kalinago people know survival skills, do you? If your employer fires you would you be able to survive like the Kaliango people have done for centuries?

    Our ancestors were brought by ships to Dominica as slaves but the Kalinago people were already there. They are a great people who have endured hardships and they are also a strong people . Due to their strength and tenacity they are alive today. They are the indigenous people of Dominica and we should be very respectful to them. Christopher Columbus, of whom the Europeans said discovered Dominica, did not. The Europeans have continually lied to us, people of color and we have continually been gullible. The Kalinago people were the first. Stop being an idiot and making a shame of yourself publicly.

    You talked about color but you have color in the reverse. All other races of people except Europeans/Causcasians, are considered to be people of color. You really are a mess.

    The Europeans have defined every word for us and the sad thing is we have believed their lies for so long that we do not even know the truth. Only the truth will set us free mentally.

    Dominica is for all of us and w need to stop looking at and believing in that color thing. We are all human beings in the sight of God.

    February 14, 2010

    In reponse to Hi’s comment.Your comments about the Carib people has really disturb my heart as a man of God.We the black people are not different than them,we were born in the same image of God.I think that you have hatred against them,why?They are not stupid,they are intelligent human beings but many a times lack opportunities to show their capacities and abilities.Hi, this is a message to you.

    If we treat a person with contempt, we are mistreating a person created in God’s image; we are hurting somebody whom God loves and for whom Jesus died.

    Racism, in varying forms and to various degrees, has been a plague on humanity for thousands of years. Brothers and sisters of all ethnicities, this should not be. Victims of racism, prejudice, and discrimination need to forgive. Ephesians 4:32 declares, “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” Racists may not deserve your forgiveness, but we deserved God’s forgiveness far less. Those who practice racism, prejudice, and discrimination need to repent. “Present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God” (Romans 6:13). May Galatians 3:28 be completely realized, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”
    Reflect on this one ok .A word to the wise is enough.

    Mr. / Mrs. / Ms. HI…..

    Who ever or what ever you are,there is something called a mirror… If you don’t have one,there’s the River,stand on it’s bank and take a HARD look at your reflection… There you will see the FOOL that you are,somebody must have tricked you into believing you had some form of education unaware that your brain is located on the wrong end of your body, the end you SIT on. You need a lesson in Sensitivity and respect for our Country and our NATIVE Dominicans… Stop poo-ing from your mouth.

    February 14, 2010

    ..It is a shame and an embarrassment to say the least that i am from the same country as the FOOL who stated that Caribs are stupid. I mean, How idiotic can someone really be to write such a statement. It shows lacks of sense, ignorance, ashamed of reality, internal hatred, anger, etc etc etc, this person is not at peace with his/herself (most likely her), and we should all empathized with her. An intelligent person would never make such comment, so please forgive her.

  43. hmm
    February 14, 2010

    TO “HI”
    I tried to refrain from commenting but I would like to know what you mean by “intelligent”. Did you see the interview with the contestants on Marpin? Did you listen to Dana during the interview and on the night of the show? I am sure you did not. Further, if you know anything about intelligence, you would have realised that Kristelle’s speech was crammed ( I am not faulting her)…just pointing it out to you.

    Her answer was not “natural’. And, Dana sounded very “unintelligent”.

    The contestants usually have the 2nd questions in advance which gives them an opportunity to come up with prepared (usually crammbed) responses. Secondly, if you are passionate about a topic, activity, belief, you should be able to speak about it in an impromptu way (question 1).

    Congrats to Marcia and to all the other young ladies for being so brave.

  47. DOMINICA'S HOME GROWN
    February 14, 2010

    Miss George I agreed with everything you said up until you got to the part of your comment “Then you wonder why we have a parrot on our passport and that’s why this country will stay as it is unless we change our selfish ways.”

    Pardon me for being thick but what exactly has an emblem on a country’s passport have to do with people’s negative attitude bearing in mind that negativity is unfortunately present in every walk of life, every country regardless of the emblem that is on the national passport?!

    I was born in Roseau in Dominica and moved to London at 5 and as a result I have a British passport in addition to one from my birth country that I proudly hold.

    On my British passport the emblems at the front are of a unicorn and a lion. I believe the United States passport may have the emblem of the American Bald Eagle which is their national bird

    Most counries have got some sort of emblem that corresponds with their history and background and I don’t hear them complaining about this and infact it appears on a number of their official documents.

    The Sisserou Parrot that appears on the Dominica passport deserves it’s place there and Dominicans should not at all be ashamed of it, as that is our national bird and we should be proud of this rare species, as opposed to be ashamed of it.

    The mare fact that you used the sentence above leads me to believe that you think it is infurior otherwise you would have used it, and we need not get twisted here and loose sight of what the subject matter was about as one risk sounding ignorant.

    I’m truly pissed off right now. Instead of you congratulating the girls for all doing a great job, you jump

    to racial and discriminating comments. We don’t need this small mindedness in Dominica. How

    would u like it if some white person were to comment on your race? Well sir or whatever you are, i

    am a proud and inteligent kalinago, and yes i am all that!

    This is how it goes, take note:

    Congratulations to Miss Baptiste. I wish you all the best in your endeavors the journey has just begun. Please go out and do Dominica proud. I just couldn’t leave without commenting on the atmosphere of HATE levelled toward Miss Kristelle Fagan. So what if she has cock eyes? So what if she felt like she had the ability to win the crown? Who goes into a competition without being confident anyways? Dominicans we need to stop this nonsense.

    Congratulations to Miss Baptiste. I wish you all the best in your endeavors the journey has just begun. Please go out and do Dominica proud. I just couldn’t leave without commenting on the atmosphere of HATE levelled toward Miss Kristelle Fagan. So what if she has cock eyes? So what if she felt like she had the ability to win the crown? Who goes into a competition without being confident anyways? Dominicans we need to stop this nonsense.

    I was told that this queen show was one of the better ones in years the girls did well and competition was tight. I’m so sorry I was not there to witness it…congratulations to all the girls especially the reigning queen…this girl has some legs on her I think they need to be insured like Rihanna’s

  59. February 13, 2010

    Congratulations to you Marcia, and continue through your reign with the guidance of God in mind. You are young, beautiful, and talented; do not forget that God created you that way, for His glory. With all your victory of this world, seek for the victory of Life in Him. That is the only asset you will be able to take with you on your way.

    To the other girls, you are all beautiful and talented, but remember that only one can be the queen. Be happy for Marcia, and give thanks to God for your privilege to put your talents on display.

    And most of all enjoy the Carnival Days with peace.

    (who posted the comment on feb 13, 2010* 5:44am)

    Are you for real? I cannot believe that in this day and age you want to discriminate. Have you forgotten what black people went through before being treated as human beings for you to come on this site today and type that nonsense? The Caribs and their descendants are Dominicans just like you and me. To speak against them in such a manner is to speak against all Dominicans.

    You seem to want to claim that Caribs are not educated. Are you? You can’t even spell and your grammar is poor … so shut your trap, idiot!

    BROTHER YOU ARE ROUGH AND TO THE POINT. I AGREE WITH YOU.

    PERHAPS YOU CAN START THE SPONSORSHIP ACCOUNT FOR WHEN THE NEXT COMPETITION TAKES PLACE THERE WILL FUNDS IN PLACE I AM LOOKING FORWARD WITH INFORMATION AND PROPER ADMINISTRATIVE INSTRUMENTS FOR THAT ACCOUNT. IT IS GOOD TO GIVE OUR VERY TALENTED YOUNG PEOPLE THE NECESSARY SUPPORT FINANCIALLY AND OTHERWISE. DOMINICAN HOME GROWN HAS SPOKEN, THE ACTION OF YOU PORTSMOUTH BUSINESS PEOPLE AND OTHERS IS TO ACTIVATE. AS A NECESSITY

U could learn a lot from this beautiful person. Nuff respect Kris

    February 13, 2010

    To the person who named their self Hi,I think that you should really reflect on the statement u made about the caribs as not being educated people but just with long hair and color.As a black dominican woman,I can say the caribs are intelligent people but lack a lot of opportunities to show their true colours.
    I guess you must be very racist and ignorant to make such a comment.The same red blood that is running through your viens is the same that is running in the caribs vein.,No wonder we as black people will be fighing against our own people.When will that Stop?
    Hearts off to the carib people,your representative did not make it but i have faith in u all and i know you all have great potencials.Long live the carib people of this Country Dominica,It all belongs to you All.
    peace,and courage and don’t let what people say about you all keep you back but let it be like an incentive to make you stronger,.

    It’s the same problem to get sponsorship for sports leagues in Possy. I can remember hearing Ian Douglas complaining about it a few years back when they were opening the football league in Possy.

    All those persons who making mucho dinero renting for Ross students they could have made a combined effort and sponsor d girl.

    Marcia make me proud for real cuz I remember DNO had a story some time back about contestants who were still unsponsored and I really felt it was a humiliating ordeal to be placed in that situation almost like a beggar but she overcame the adversity. Possy got talent!!

  69. DOMINICA'S HOME GROWN
    February 13, 2010

    In response to this “Homeboy” person’s comments, even though I am not from the Portsmouth area, you and I both know that the issue of all the judges historically being from the City of Roseau, haa always had a lot to do with so many bad decisions that have been made in the past as far as competitions and pageants results/winners go in DA!

    Case in point, the main chaperon of Miss Dominica 2010, Marcia Baptiste, (Elma Aaron) from Portsmouth, was awarded 1st runner up the year that she entered the competition when in fact she won the Miss Dominica title hands down and was cheated by none other but these socall judges for another contestant who couldn’t string two sentences together to win a crown regionally or even represent our island to a high standard regionally and internationally.

    That same contestant who was awarded the Miss Dominica title that year to my recollection couldn’t even represent the island in regional competitions and if my memory serves me right, the bulk of the representation was done by none other than Elma Aaron who was systematically cheated of the title and what an amazing job she did as well.

    Coming to think of it, who was this mystery winner that year anyway as I cannot seem to remember who she was? Does anyone even know…………….?

    There were numerous others from what I remember over the years but I just cannot remember them all clearly now, so in fact people are justified to say and highlight all those miscomings that historically plagued competitions and pageants in Dominica which is not paranoia on their part but the truth as I know this being from Roseau.

    Perhaps it might have something to do with all that has been said over the years about the lack of people deciding to boycot the shows and the fact that a lot of the judges are not necessarily from the City of Roseau but from other places as well, which perhaps brings a balance perspective on the judging panel.

    Hopefully, things finally begin to change and improve for the better, move away to a better direction from the small minded narrow biasness that was common place in yesteryear.

    If the right people are selected in the first place, the chances of them doing well and representing the island superbly well is improved significantly and therefore showcasing our talents gets brought to the front, as opposed to those people who are awarded titles not on merit but based on other issues such as who knows who, or who is from where on the island.

    NOT AT ALL PARANOID OR IN THEIR HEAD BUT A HISTORICAL REALITY! HOW LONG IS THE NILE RIVER…………?

  71. DOMINICA'S HOME GROWN
    February 13, 2010

    Once again congratulations to Miss Dominica 2010 Marcia Baptiste and her sponsor and part sponsor (The business man) who finally saw faith in her as we all saw, even at the last minute and supported her.

    Shame on Ross University who have benefited greatly throughout the years for the dedication and support from the people of the City of Portsmouth, yet decided to bypass Marcia a young lady from the City and decided to sponsor another girl! That is a huge slap in the face as far as I am concerned and the people responsible should be “named and shamed” for this!

    Even more shame on all the BUSINESS HOUSES in the City of Portsmouth, they know and we all know who they are, who didn’t even have the decency to support a young intelligent, ambitious, together, humble and going places young leader of the future and one to watch, and instead decided to lie silent, play blind and death and not come to her rescue!

    It is people like you lot who unfortunately keep the City of Portsmouth down for your lack of support towards locals or local events, thus supporting and doing things for your own City, and in turn you decide to turn around and have the audacity to blame Roseau and other business places around the island for not supporting you or for you not having any thing going on in your local City!

    I say you socall BUSINESS PLACES in Portsmouth need to wake up, smell the coffee roasting, stop being so damn greedy and hanging on to your cents selfishly all for yourself ,and disrespectfully not giving back anything to the local community after all the support they continue to give you throughout the years, and put your money where your “greedy/selfish” mouths are, instead of turning around and blaming Roseau and other businesses for not supporting your own activities locally and in this case in point ————-the lack of support for our new Miss Dominica 2010 Marcia Baptiste who I reckon will be a great ambassador for the island both regionally and internationally. YOU SHOULD ALL BE A SHAME OF YOURSELVES AND YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!!!

    There is absolutely no excuse whatsoever for not supporting her and I am very angry about this like so many others…………..The least you lot could do, even if you were not able to go as a lone sponsor, was come together and endorse and support the contestant in a joint venture sponsorship programme like so many others have done……………Absolutely unacceptable and at least everyone know who you lot are in Postsmouth!

    Put your money where your “greedy/selfish” mouths are and show gratitude in future to supporting contestants in national shows and local events as a whole, as that is basically your duty and obligation to give back time and time again to the locals and local communtiy, not a choice!

    It is still not to late to support Miss Dominica Marcia Baptiste, as there will be regional and international shows that she will be taking part in and your much needed assistance will go a long way, so you are not let off the hook as yet and we expect you to contribute towards her aspirations to represent, promote and be an ambassasor for her the island!

    WELL DONE MARCIA AND WE SUPPORT YOU WHOLE IN ALL YOUR ENDEAVOURS FOR THE FUTURE! REMAIN POSITIVE, LEVEL HEADED AND FOCUSED ON THE TASK AT HAND!

Kris you did your best even if your talent was sabotaged , and i do know you would have represented us well throughout your reign stay positive.

    Congratulations are in order to you MARCIA.

    A crown well deserved but best talent should have gone to valdie De Jean. I am disappointed that the judges keep choosing people who just talk as best talent, everyone can talk. Valdie had an exceptional creative emotional dance. Best evening wear should have gone to Marcia Baptist, bad decision again, I guess they wanted to give the Kalinago girl something.

    You guys should realize that It’s not because one has a degree they can judge a show, “square pegs in round holes” again. Please choose your judges wisely in the future. One year at leat bring in overseas judges and see if we can have a show with no biasness. Please dont say this is too expensive because all you guys have to do is work with the Tourism office or the Hotel Association to get accommodation for the overseas judges, work with LIAT for rebated tickets and stop the Monotony of cheating. Hats off to Marcia, beautiful girl, with a good team behind her she will make Dominica proud.

    February 13, 2010

    u ppl so just full of s**t . just because kirstal won all her other shows she took part in doesnt mean she thought she would of won …. n tell me y would someone go up for a show n not think they gonna win ……. dont get me wrong i am not a fan of kristal but ppl need to stop beiing so personal n leav e the girl alone man …. congrats to marcia i listened n u did a good job go out n make dominica proud.

    Congrats to Marcia. It is so ironic that she was the one who was without a sponsor until the final days. So i send a shout to the sponsor as well (Dr. LaFond) enjoy your victory too. That just shows that the queen is always picked in advance and the other ladies are there to make a show. Remember the girl from St. Joseph? Thanks for proving them wrong Marcia. Enjoy your year as queen.

  77. WHY
    February 13, 2010

    Dominicans, its about time we change our attitudes….. All the girls did a marvelous job and indeed the best and most consistent performer won. this is what the show is about….. we need to stop cryin down on each other like that, it really doesnt look nice….. That’s why some of us just waste our whole livesstudyin others and we forget bout ourselves…… anyways 2010 real mass goin sweet so far!!!!!

    Unless I am missing something the winner Marcia received lots of congrats, I miss listening to the show on DBS last night. There is nothing wrong with posting criticism (no censorship). Everyone has their favourite person they want to win, but there can only be one winner. I do not see anything wrong with the postings; praise DNO for giving everyone a fair share to post his or her comment. I will keep reading.

    WOWWWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOW !!!!!!!!!!!

    I didnt go into the show to suppport anyone in particular because I know all of the girls reasonably well and I knew that this would be a great queen show and it did lived up to expectations. Marcia’s story and struggles in her preparation for this event is infact an experience for a bestselling novel ( non fiction ). This absolutely sensuously attractive exotic brainy lass surpassed tremendous hurdles and even went to father Sharplis for guidance. It also had to take a Newtown native and Barbadian based top gynecologist Dr Geoffrey La fond to help her out in sponsorship and for this he must be commended.

    While some persons customarily attack the judges because their “girl” didnt win, I can say that the overwhelming majority of the patrons were quite satisfied with the fact that MARCIA won. It was a very deserving accomplishment and the entire nation seems very comfortable with our newest ROYALTY. I do know that her family and they and the people of the North must be exceedingly happy and anyone who knows her well ought not be too surprised at how well she has done. Marcia has the Baptiste genes of intelligence flowing through her veins and this creamed beauty will be a great representative of this our beloved country, You cannot help yourself but to just LOVE Marca ; she is so queenly, humble, respectable and carries herself with a sense of qualified dignity.

    I was also impressed with her platform and her intent to work with the local diabetes association to sensitize our people on this silent killer. Its a serious problem in our country and it speaks voluminously of her sheer intelligence to use such an important platform. OH boy the way in which she portrayed it in her talent is in itself a mind-boggling work of fine genius.

    February 13, 2010

    Congratulations to Ms. Dominica 2010!

    And to all the other competitors, congratulations! I hope you had fun… you all gave your all.

    Just one small comment. If you look at the only award the ladies voted on – the Miss Amity award… Kristelle Fagan was the recipient. For those of us who are making such ugly and negative comments about this young lady it would be nice to observe that the participants themselves think she is a wonderful person.

    If someone has a high self-esteem and confidence in themselves who are we to tell them what they can and cannot do or should or should not do. Most of the comments about Kristelle thinking she had won already are from our individual opinions that she may just win… because she had won so many previous titles. Do not judge… before the show.

    Congrats again to all the wonderful participants. I am sure the crown is well deserved. You are all queens in your own right and each embassadors to your country.

    To Marcia Congratulations my dear I was routing for you all the way, from the time I saw that interview you all did on SAT and how you answered your questions, I said this is the girl she will be queen so hats off to you.
    Kristelle, Danna congratulations as well.
    To the people who are bashing Kristelle and the others lets not do it. She is a human being and she has feelings to, and lets be more open minded. It’s not right to criticize people about things they cannot change lets have a heart and stop it. I believe she did her best and she had her place in the competition.
    Congratulations to all the girls and remember that every failure brings with it the seed of an equivalent success. All the best in the future.

    Congratulations to all the beautiful, confident, brave, intelligent and positive young ladies who devoted their time and talent to prove that determination and hard work ultimately pays off. You are the cream of the crop …. And you are all winners……..

    To MARCIA, the queen, I say, wear your crown proudly, you deserve it. As you commit your time and talent to serving your lovely island for the next year, may you be respected and allowed the opportunity to perform your duties in an environment, which is peaceful, progressive and a stepping stone towards achieving your full potential……….. Well done Posse!

    Forget about the ignorance of those who seek to belittle you or any of the other contestants. Remember, a prophet has no honor in his own country; however, with God, all things are possible. Just be true to yourself and you will obtain the best that life has to offer — in Dominica and outside of Dominica. Have a wonderful and safe carnival season as you continue representing the island in the carnival activities.

    Congrats to the new queen.

    But papa maitre…what’s all that animosity towards Kristelle Fagan? The contestants chose her as Miss Amity (meaning she was the most friendly, cordial, got along with other ppl) so obviously that speaks to her personality. Therefore, I conclude that some of the comments here are based on jealousy. Congratulate allu queen and zip allu mouth nuh.

    Why Dominicans like dat nuh zor? Once you keeping up yourself well and not dragging your bottom around, our people grudge….I know from personal experience how that works! Kristelle came from humble beginnings and kept herself up well, with the guidance of her family. Our people seem to have a problem with ordinary people doing extra-ordinary things. So because Kristelle has a little “cock-eye” allu had expect her to just hide in a corner & fade? I like how she defied the norm and took part in Princess Show/Teenage Pageant and won both and tried out for National Queen!

    I myself don’t know any of the ladies personally; but, I just checking our people too bad-minded man!

    It was time those judges be fair and stop breaking the sprit of young people to long every crown have to go Roseau or people always going home upset after the show because of straight forward cheating. Now we all have to be pround she is not a portsmouth crown she is miss Dominica the one that going to make us proud any where she go and represent us. All we need is for god to guide her and let her keep her head straight and make wise decision. For just after miss St Thomas win her crown she lost her life coming from a party 1:30 in the morning winning a crown can sometimes make people act on top of the world but sister put god first be carefull donot forget those who support you and god bless you in every thing you do or will do,

Dominicans should be all greatful and proud of all of our beautiful and intelligent young ladies. Rather than going on the website and post all these negative and foolish comments that makes no sense at all, why don’t you all Thank them for their precious time to exibit some of the great talent, beauty and intelligence Dominica has to offer. We have so many visitors from all over the world. And to those people who has nothing to do but post negative comments, Thank God that women like our queen contestants can show the world that it is not only stupid and narrow minded people that come from Dominica. The negative comments that you put on the site is very appalling. I would advice all these people of such caliber to keep your negative comments t yourselves and stay of the site. Remember it’s not only Dominicans that read these comments. Congratulations to Marcia and all the rest of the contestants. You are all winners in your own rights.

I always say for a Possie girl to win she would have to blow the competition away, and you did just that! Hope you move on to bigger and better things!! And to all the people bashing the girls, please STOP IT!! It takes a lot of courage to get on stage and all the girls this year from all reports did a splendid job. Hats off to all you girls, and to other young ladies thinking of competing next year don’t make a few silly comments from a handful of peabrains out there prevent you from acheiving your dreams.

You were very articulate and I just liked the pee-pee part. You also have a great smile and I do believe that you are very photogenic as the judges revealed.

    February 13, 2010

    i think this years show was fairly judged and this just goes to show how the saying expect the unexpected. Marcia really delivered and convincingly won the crown. Congratulations to you! make yourself and everyone else proud. Spectacular performance.

  110. February 13, 2010

    congrats to you girl marcia i was not a fan of you but i listened to the show and trust me you was the only one who kept your platform and you was to the point….boy i love that talent. ……………..but wait roseau people came to a point where they see they canot thief possi people again man they already thief us last yr and give the crown to miss up that bring shame to dominica when she went to represent us. history in the making possi finally get what had to be theres…..they should have carnival in possi all now…..we possi people are the best, the smartest, and most of alll have beauty.

    February 13, 2010

    Congratulations to all the ladies I think it takes courage and strenth to go and be a queen contestant. Well done. I must say to the persons who pre judged the show they are dissapointed badly. marcia to you I say CONGRATULATIONS!! I was and still is dissapointed that no one found faith in Marcia to sponsor her, not even the business persons in Portsmouth. They could not even come together like the staff of the Ministry who sponsored their co-worker, Congrats a million and more times to them for a job well done. Valdie did not win but i am sure she represented, CONGRATS Valdi. Just imaging ROSS University is situated in Portsmouth and they did not even sponsor or part-sponsor Marcia, she was an underDog searching for a sponsors but I admire her for she was determined, motivated and was ready to teke the stage with whatever she had, with God on he side every minute she was VICTORIOUS. Tod her talent writer Mrs Mary Parillon, her charperon and assistant Elma Aaron and Prince StJean, her sister Calyn Rolle , Alcid and all those who assisted in one way or the other thanks you for helping and ensuring that marcia delivered to the best of her ability last night. I was facinated by ther talent and hopes that she goes to the SCHOOLS especially the Primary and Pre- Schools and educate them on the effects of diabetis . She is a real role model. I know that with your ability and the strength and courage and God at the helm you will bring back crowns to Dominica at the regional shows. I am really disapointed that ROSS University did not sponsor their own from Portsmouth. This was a slap in the face, but she was the underdog and she won. We love you Marcia. Mentain your Platform . GO GIRL, WEVLOVE YOU .

    February 13, 2010

    Is is ironic that when someone we want to win gets the crown, everything is fine! I am just happy that Dominicans think the judging was fair! And to all the people from Portsmouth who always contend that “Roseau” people have something against them, I hope you see it is all an illusion in your mind!!!!!

    Stop the foolishness Dominica is one small island, stop perpetuating animosity.

    Congrats Marcie, also to Dana and all the girls who went up. i listened to the entire pageant on DBS last night and it was well-deserving. The North and Possie has always been a force to reckon with where pageants are concerned. Keep it my my ladies and may you have a God-blessed reign in 2010 Marcia.

    I’d also like to commend DBS for a job well-done at the coverage of the show.

    congrats marcia your talent was the best amoung d rest… you were all natural towards dis show besides the comment people make about you even if u didn’t had a sponser as yet but you did your best…. finally possie has gotton their crown

  115. what a show
    February 13, 2010

    Congratulations marcia that performing talent was exceptional when i saw that i know the show was over. the people questioning dana you should have been at the show to see that she and marcia were number one and two in talent and in evening wear and they were both very consistent that’s why she got first runner up. also cristelle fagan did not even deserve to place first of all with the green dress and that ridculous and unentertaining talent. i think amy ploidore did an excellent job and she was overlooked she deserved the 2nd runner up spot.

  126. hi
    February 13, 2010

    I always had Dana Augustine and Kristell Fagan in mind for queen 2010.Dana is a really brilliant lady and Kristelle is Intelligent.

    Marcia out classed them on the night,so they took first and second places,but they almost won.

    Congrates to you three. That’s the TOP THREE, TRUST MEEEEE!!!!!!!!

    The crown can never go carib territory.They are not educated people! All they have is hair,color and they think they are the best. but not among true EDUCATED beauties like Marcia and Dana!

    Amen

    mANDY WHY DNT YOU STOP HATIN ON KRIESTELLE???OBVIOUSLY EVERYONE KNOWS SHE HAS POTENTIAL THAT’S WHY SHE HAD A LOT OF SUPPORTERS…….KRISTELLE HAS ALREADY MADE DOMINICA PROUD WITH THE JACEEES PAGEANT SO WOT U ON ABOUT….SOME OF U DOMINICANS ARE JUST ACTIN STUPID!ONLY ONE PERSON CAN WIN THE CROWN SO ALL U HV TO DO IS CONGRATULATE RTHE CONTESTANTSS…..AND WISH THEM WELL. IT TAKES A LOT OF COURAGE TO GOO ON STAGE..SOME OF U WILL NEVER HAVE TO GUTS TO DO IT.. SO SHUT YR MOUTH!!!

    I HOPE THE ELECTED QUEEN REPRESENTS DOMINICA WELL….COZ I KNOW KRISTELLE WOULD HAVE REPRESENTED DOMINICA VERY WELLL……

    BY THE WAY . KRITELLE DID NOT THINK SHE HAD THE CRWON…IF U KNOW HER VERY WELL LIKE I DO . SHE IS A VERY HUMBLE PERSON….DOWN TO EARTH AND RESPECTFULLL…GET YR FACTS STRAIGHT…….

    Never underestimate anyone. Who thought she would have won? Everyone is surprised now especially for the fans of KF. Not even sponsorship she could have gotten, last minute seeking sponsorship, no one thought she could have done it,.
    To you Marcia, keep reaching for the stars, have god as your motivator, your guidance and things will work for you. I know your sincerity, when i read your profile i was moved by your comments, i come from the same neighborhood with you. I am so proud of you. Well done. CONGRATULATIONS. Prove to us in Porsie that you can achieve and will take home more crowns.

    Wow what a fantastic performance that Marcia has done and as the under dog, I always thought he had something special and great to see that she has delivered.

    For once in a very long time, the jugdes decision seems to have gone down well overall with patrons.

    May she continue to go from strength to strength and have a successful and productive year and go on to represent us DA favourably.

    The show has been of a very high standard by all accounts and what a difference.

    Well done young ambassador and best wishes!
