UPDATE: Tasia Floissac is Miss Wob Dwiyet 2013

Miss Wob Dwiyet 2013 Tasia Floissac

She walked like she owned the stage. She exhibited the natural grace and poise deserving of royalty and captured the hearts of both judges and audience.

And when the time came for the judges to make their decision, there was no doubt that 20-year-old  Tasia Floissac from Atkinson deserved the title of 2013 Miss Wob Dwiyet.

Representing the east, Floissac captured the coveted title at the Old Mill cultural center on Thursday night from a field of seven young ladies from across the island.

Floissac won awards for Best Talent and Best in Wob.

She told reporters that her victory is a great achievement.

“I feel very rewarding, I mean I have been to so many pageants and just finally winning I think it’s a great achievement for me right now,” she said.

She mentioned that being Miss Wob is all about having “poise and elegance and I worked really hard …and I think that is all about consistency having the wob on and creative wear and the talent and everything, I think consistency just top it off for me”.

Floissac said she may try her hand at the national pageant and she will also be seeking to further her studies, and describe the achievement as ‘wonderful’ for her community.

She is also a member of the sisserou singers.

Second place went to Zethra Baron who represented the South, who also captured an award for Best in Spectacular Wear.

Marissa Thomas of the Northern district took third place while Germiamah Junkere of the South West placed fourth.

The show was judged in three areas: Talent, Creole Spectacular Wear and Wob dwiyet.

Each participant were given a participation trophy and a gift basket.

There were appearances from the Madam Wob Dwiyet 2013 Veronique Nicholas, as well as the Toronto and USA Madam Wob dwiyet.

The pageant was one of the highlights of Dominica’s Independence celebrations.

    Winner: Zethra Baron, First runner up: Marissa. Tasia Flosiac wasn’t even supposed to be placed. or at least third. They could have just given Tasia her crown for the three rounds since they came with a preset winner. But they know that giving Marissa best talent would have automatically put Zethra with the crown, so long live unfair judgement in all queen shows in Dominica.

    I was at the show,and it wasn’t. Judged fairly,the young lady that won knew she was going to win .because most of the judges in some groups with her which is unfair.the woman just come and sing a song and win talent awa,she was the only one with a fan,why was that ?I thought all was suppose to have the same ?if not correct me.the way I saw it baron. Deserved the crown. The young lady they gave it to suppose to get 2runner up.

    • Ridiculous
      November 18, 2013

      were u judging? do you know what the judging criteria was??…the young ladyknew she was going to win because she was confident that she put her best foot fwd….i got an look at the score-sheet…her scores were wayyyyy above the others….it was TASIA….Then the others !!….the judges took a wile to decide who the runner ups were not the winner. Give the girl her credit. She had a fan because she wanted too. they didnt say the other girls could not have fans, cultural division did not provide fans. the other contestants could have had their fans. its so ridiculous how u Dominicans like to bash ppl…a make something out of nothing…A FAN !!!…and its too bad because baron did not get the crown !! it wasnt hers

    • Ridiculous
      November 18, 2013

    Peace be onto all who seek guidance from the Most High. Tasia and I worked together; she is an exceptionally talented young lady. I want to extend to her if she reads this all the best in her endeavors in anything which is pleasing to the Most High.

    Tasia, as a talented young lady you are invited to keep an equally open mind by exploring http://www.whyislam.org or http://www.islamreligion.com. The invitation is to research information from a different perspective and to seek guidance from the Most High alone in your journey.

      November 18, 2013

      True….The news paper costume was nice. Ms barons was too short….and come on..the same fish net?…even Dublanc had a nice costume

      • Ridiculous
        November 18, 2013

        and since we’re on the topic of original….the news papers were original…and Ms FLoissac’s was as well..no one ever used news papers before and no one used only straws and foil before
