ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - The eleven delegates who took to the stage last evening at the Miss Caribbean World 2013 Pageant completed their performance to the dollar, all capped off the night being a queen in their own regard but the Queen of a Queens was the Virgin Islands' own Miss Sharie B. deCastro.

The prize for 4th runner-up went to Miss St Kitts & Nevis – Trevicia Adams, 3rd runner-up Miss St Lucia – Joy Ann Biscette, 2nd runner-up Miss St Vincent & The Grenadines – Carice Glasgow, 1st Runner-up Miss Dominica - Leslassa Armour Shillingford.

In addition to taking the crown as queen for this year's Miss Caribbean World, Miss BVI Sharie B. deCastro walked away with the prizes for Best Poise, Miss Intellect, Best Talent, Best Evening Wear and she tied with Miss Dominica for best Swim Suit.

The prize for Best National Costume went to Miss St Lucia – Ann Biscette and the Miss Photogenic of the night was Miss Miss Dominica - Leslassa Armour Shillingford.

Miss Antigua & Barbuda – Ranee Laronde, Miss Cuba – Daniela Garcia; Miss US Virgin Islands – Cliaunjel Williams, Miss Bahamas – Mea Petit Homme, Miss Trinidad & Tobago – Sonia Millington, and Miss United States of America – Jaielean Thomas went back home with no prizes but the satisfaction of a great experience and the courage to continue their personal endeavours.

There was no doubt that had the audience remain quiet every time she was introduced on stage the scores at the end of the night would have been just as it turned out as it did with the loud cheers and applauds Miss deCastro  got from supporters.

The night of Glitz, Glamour and Talent got off to a prompt 7 P.M. start at the Multi-Purpose Sports Complex, Station Road, Road Town, Tortola, Virgin Islands. Up first was the introductory dance by the 11 delegates who took to the stage all dressed in white and complimented by a group of serenade dancers as the spirit of strong competition sparkled throughout the Complex when each delegate took the microphone and introduced themselves.

That was the only time for the night that patrons would have heard them speak other than those who did not choose to dance as their talent presentation. The night quickly flew on as the beautiful ladies showcased their slender bodies, plum in the case of Miss USA, well fitted in teasing pieces of swim suits.

Miss Antigua and Bermuda was the first to set the pace for the others to follow and they did excellently so. All along, Miss BVI, Miss Dominica, Miss St.Lucia and Miss Cuba compelled the crowd to roar in awe. The others did show well too but the competition was indeed a hot run race.

The Costume Segment was a spectacle of creativity. Miss BVI's costume of the butterfly story saw her display and unlike the usual prancing around the stage, she stepped gracefully as she smartly rotated her shoulder to allow her butterfly's wings to flap smoothly to tell the story it had accompanied by the Territorial Song.

The experience on the international scene did pay dividend as she made full use of ever part and angle of the stage to connect directly with the judges, audience and the many flashing cameras.

Again Miss Dominica kept on her heels as a crowd favourite. Talent was talent for the greater part and one would not be bias in saying that indeed the prize for the Best Talent was a well deserved one for Miss BVI Sharie B. deCastro. She spoke to the women of their worth and self value that should the prize on the platter for life. This she did in her elecution style poetry complimented by a musical interjection of her on the piano and concluded with a robust structured man gracefully and carefully taking her off stage safely in his arm elevated on his shoulder to the words "A real man carries his weight." 

It was the unique piece for the night as the others followed the common trend of dancing, interpretative in some cases, dramatic poetry, the playing of the steel pan and singing. Most spoke to the international pandemic of domestic violence especially in the form of child sexual abuse. It was as if that was the theme for the pageant.

The evening gowns were the 'wow' of the night as all the young ladies did not fail to impress. But if one were to pick an amount that consumes the five fingers on one hand they definitely would have been Miss Antigua and Burmuda, Miss BVI, Miss Dominica, Miss St. Lucia and Miss St Vincent & The Grenadines - Carice Glasgow. Royal blue was the dominant colour of the night with the evening gowns.

The audience was a fairly well respectful one despite there was no holding back when it came to their favourites which for the most part were Miss BVI and Miss Dominica.

There were just some amount of heckling, which mostly came from the females in the audience. On the other hand some men's silence was very loud and was heard in their poise, hand-on-mouth and eyes following the young ladies every step they made especially in the Swim Wear and Evening Wear segments. They had no choice but to speak in silence as in most cases the woman sitting next to them had them under strong subjection being sure to constantly look over the shoulders at their reaction. But some were bold enough to say what they had to out aloud. "That kind of body I could take to the beach", "she's worth every penny on my bank account", "She got some cleaning up to do", "No, too young to be so flabsy", "Come on girl make my night", "now she's got self confidence, bring me on the meat and stick the straws between my teeth", "yes, yes every thing they only blaming the men and they can't do without we."

The night seemed to be one well deserving of one's time and money and while some persons walked away with the notion that the judging was somewhat unfair, the majority were definitely happy to be called a BVIslander, Belonger or a visitor as they did seem to love Miss BVI Sharie B. deCastro for the crown she now wears.

    She won based on a well executed and consistent performance. Judging also from the girls' answers in the pre judged interview, she out classed her counterparts even then. That segment alone was worth 100 points. I believe she was underestimated by many and boy did she deliver!!

    While I think Miss decastro did well there is no way in which she outmodeled Miss Antigua and Miss Dominica. Miss Poise. She looked timid and certainly there was some homecourt advantage points that were applied. My fellow Dominicans we should boycott this show!

    I had the opportunity to work with Miss de Castro and trust me when I say; "nothing was taken for granted". She came out and worked as hard and as committed...long n short, the best girl won! Boycott? Because you didn't win this time? How immature!!! My advice is for you to grow-up and deal with it!! No wonder why some of us in the region are struggling to thrive...I am sure apart of the reason is that when things don’t go our way, we quit! Miss Dominica did well and that should be commended not downplayed as failure.

    For the promoter: you should definitely look at having overseas judges in addition to Local judges as it does seem bias. While I feel Ms BVI did well, I also feel MS. dOMininca edged her and Ms Antigua should have placed in the Runner up category. Yes the judges decision is final but Ms Hamm next time invite some persons from other countries, hey they might be visiting the BVI already, ask them to judge, so the panel will look a lot more fair.

      The swimsuit segment is not only about your body. In some of the Caribbean countries they have two categories for swimsuit which is 'Best swim wear and Best IN swimwear'. It is amazing how some of you only concentrate on calling down people. Can someone tell me when it has Miss Jaycees, Miss Caravel and other regional pageants on other Caribbean islands if their are any BVI judges. Dominica won four titles and it was fair did not hear them complain but it seems like the Miss Caribbean World crown was left in the will for Dominicans. I leave all of you haters with this "Who GOD bless, let no man curse." Sharie: Don't let haters bring you down. Let your haters become your motivators. Haters are like crickets, they chirp all day and when you walk by them they shut up.

    Before you all type mess, please go and look up the definition of the word POISE!! It is not about modeling or who had the better body. Every queen show you all type the same mess! When will you also understand that a pageant is about points?? If a girl ain't got no brains and intellect is a 100 points how then will she place? People like you all should not attend pageants going forward! Congrats to our queen!!

    Poise- composure or dignity of manner. I hearing all your talk but the masses obviously feel that she should not have won some of these segments. We give here intellect hands down. But if you think for one minute that intellect is the only reason she got that crown on her head think again. I looked up the defination for you. Poise is about how you carry yourself and in pageantry that translates to modeling technique. If you seriously think that she possessed more poise than Miss Antigua Miss Dominca or Miss SVG you need to stop come show. All I got to say Miss Universe is coming up and you cant fake your way ub that pageant.

      The Miss World tips for swim wear competition states an I quote "While judges are looking for overall fitness, poise and grace are of utmost importance. Walk smoothly and carefully, just as you would in evening gown competition, but show a sense of well-being in your face." Most contestants rip the runway in swimwear and that is a no-no.

    there were weak areas during Sharie on-stage appearances there is no denying but there were even more flaws with the other girls so it was a match of strength and weaknesses that give a final tally which saw her ahead of the rest. this is not something isolated to this pageant but it happens all the time in all pageants. POISE was definitely 98% hers. Swimsuit! Nah but each judge had a different eye. There was one point I was scared that Sharie would have fallen how her legs were shaking but she stood strong and that's where she prove to be extremely strong and talented. don't even go to the talent piece if you are not a person of the arts you wouldnt appreciate. It was the BEST.

      Listen I hear you. Each girl had their flaws but honestly miss antigua's swimsuit to her costume to her talent to her gown were executed very well. That girl outmodeled every contestant on stage. And she looked amazing! I am not here to take anything away from Miss Decastro as she is the queen, but lets be fair. Sharie is cute and looked great but she seemed very timid on stage. Her execution of her swimwear was ok. Her cultural costume while the design was ok she did little to showcase it. Her piano performance was out of tume. And while I will give her gown, her modeling and deportment were anything from great. So now tell me how did she win. Show me the flaws in Miss Antigua. Make me understand how she won talent over SVG. And let me hear you explain how she won ALL the categories. I think we need to be honest and admit that the judges decision was very biased!

    Thanks MYOB! well said. I will leave this last note because you can't argue with ignorant people. To all those on her about going to Miss Universe, please research that as well!!! Miss Universe is about POLITICS! Its about who invest the most $$ into the Trump enterprise. You all really think that show is on "beauty" alone? strupes. Yes, there will be taller, smarter even and more prettier than Sharie for that universal pageant BUT its an opportunity for her to promote OUR British Virgin Islands. Most of you on here hating on her and not even living in your own country! Its also a great opportunity for her to meet other ladies from around the world and have a grand time WHICH SHE SO WELL DESERVES! So lay off!!! Yes, it would be nice for her to place to shut you all up but if she doesn't WHO CARES! We are proud of her and I look forward to seeing her represent. All you all want is who look "pretty". You need the complete package my darlings and SHE HAS IT! Instead of bashing her, pick up a book like her and read. You might learn something. Roger and out!

      It is about politics but in the past at least we were comfortable with sending our contestants. I think last year with Miss Hyndman is a perfect example that If you have the COMPLETE package you can make a name for yourself at the pageant. So you are content on sending a girl, in which the rest of th world will laugh at us. She can represent us in so many areanas, but why send someone who really does not stand a chance.

    This is the reason why many young women do not take part in these shows because of all the criticism. Why run in a show to then win and get criticize. Soon there will be no Miss BVI pagent.

    I found that Ms Dominica's dress looked and fitted better than Ms BVI's dress! And yes, I was BORN AND RAISED IN THE BVI. I am not hating and I am not discriminating on Ms BVI. Congrats to her!

      A lot of you are born and raised but not indigenous BVIslanders. You are true to the country from whence your parents came. You can look at a couture dress, perfectly fit and say DA dress looked and fitted better. Go get a life. Yes you are hating.
