      Their parents should have prepared them for that. There can only be one winner. They were all very intelligent children, but the judges were spot on in their judging.

      Nobody lost, they all did well and there could only be one winner. Some of the kids cried because they knew how their parents and other adults felt about the show. Some of the adults put so much pressure on the kids instead of letting them express and enjoy themselves in the moment.

    I want to say a big congrats to the new chair. The show was amazing it just flowed job well done. The judging for the girls was fair. For the boys Foxy grandson should have won. Just my opinion.

    P.S I hope Miss BVI is the same not no heap of boring entertainment

    Foxy Grandson was good, but a good second. The winner was outstanding and fully deserved the crown.

    This was my first in maybe we'll over 5 years I have been to this show and it was worth the 20 dollars... the show was judged fairly indeed... the young lady that came 1st runner up should've won just out of maturity. . Just my opinion as well.. the prince who won did deserve it also.. out the gate he was one of my favorites.... miss bvi need contestants need to learn a little from these kids. Their show would never be as good as this one.... not one of the kids forgot their lines and I was very proud... job well done
