On that evening, as was the expectation, six sensational beauties hit the stage making appearances in five segments, wowing the audience with their poise, grace, elegance and intelligence.
Representing LIME was Judy Dupont, Carib Brewery St. Kitts Ltd was represented by Micheleina Charles-Hazelle, Queeley represented the St. Kitts Nevis Anguilla National Bank, Miss Development Bank was Abigail Liburd, Miss Kittitian Hill was Rolhensha Henry and Kimani Phillip was sponsored by the St. Kitts Music Festival.
Each of the six beauties made appearances in the Swimwear segment, National Pride segment, Talent segment, Evening Wear segment and the Interview segment.
History was made at the 2010/2011 hosting of the event because, for the first time in the life of the event, the interview segment – traditionally the most grueling and nerve-racking segment – was the first judged segment in which the ladies appeared.
That segment was followed by the Swimwear segment, National Pride segment, then the Talent and Evening Wear segments respectively.
Blowing away her competition, Queeley won all but one adjudicated segment. She won Best Interview amassing a total of 172 out of a possible 200 points, Best Swimwear amassing a total of 141 out of a possible 175 points, National Pride scoring 151 of the 175 possible points and the Evening Wear segment.
The other segment – Talent – was won by Miss LIME, Dupont, who walked away with 153 out of a possible 175 points for that segment.
Each contestant was awarded participation mementos which were distributed by Chair of the National Carnival Queen Sub-Committee, Nicole Gumbs.
Other awards, which did not contribute to the contestants’ placing in the competition, were the Most Photogenic award, the Miss Amity award and the Chairperson’s award which went to Queeley.
The sensational six, some weeks ago, participated in the inaugural MiyVue.com Best Radio and Best Television Interview competitions during which they were prepared for the harsh realities of the pageant’s interview segment, and their interviewing skills honed. For each competition, a winner was selected by a panel of judges and one was selected by the public.
These awards were distributed to the winners on the night of the show with Queeley and Henry winning the judges’ choice for Best Television and Best Radio Interview respectively, and Dupont and Queeley selected as the people’s choices for the respective competitions.
Although she was crowned queen, if, for whatever reason, Queeley is unable to perform her duties as the National Carnival Queen 2010/2011, first runner-up placer, Abigail Liburd will assume responsibility. Liburd amassed a total of 729 points, approximately 50 below the queen’s.
The second runner-up position was given to LIME’s Dupont.
