Even though eyebrows were raised when it was confirmed that both St Kitts and Nevis were having separate contestants rather than one representative, the two beauties took to the stage with pride, beauty, talent and intellect.
After the introduction, swimwear, talent and evening wear segments, the scores were tallied and only the top five contestants moved on to the interview segment. Miss St Kitts, Orngel Erskine and Miss Nevis, Akeisha Fergus, along with Miss Dominica, Miss Antigua and Barbuda, and Miss USA were asked to step forward as the nights top contestants.
As the show focused on the issue of cancer, the contestants were all asked questions on the topic. The five contestants did extremely well in this segment, but it was Miss Dominica whose answer mentioned that governments in the Caribbean should collectively work to provide cancer patients and families with facilities and assistance, took home the award for this segment.
