On her way to victory, Adams also copped the titles of Best Ambassadorial Wear and Best Evening Wear.
She amassed an overall total of 1,826 points to secure victory, leaving her First Runner up, Marvia Lawrence of Curacao, only six points behind on 1,820 points. Second Runner up was St. Lucia’s Louise Victor, who trailed on 1,785 points while the representative from St. Croix, USVI, Ashley Massaiah, took Third Runner with 1,706 points.
It was however a pageant that would be remembered for its fierce competitive nature with a constant battle between St. Lucia, Curacao, St. Kitts, St. Croix and some glimpses of hope from the Barbados delegate. All had their high moments but also suffered in at least one appearance, in varied degrees, but it was the overall consistency of St. Kitts, and the downfall of Curacao in her Evening Wear, that eventually produced a result that left Trevicia Adams as the leading contender. Even she too, fell in her interview despite admitting afterwards that her nerves got the better of her, causing her to lose track of her thoughts and failing to provide the quality answer of which she was capable. She was asked about Global Warming.
Perhaps the biggest disappointment of the night however, was the contestant from host island, Nevis, who fell into a deep abyss in her interview segment, when quizzed about what she would ask Olympic 100m champion, Usain Bolt of Jamaica, if she met him. Her disappointing answer that she would ask him about Nevis, not only shocked the home crowd, but left them very angry with her for blowing any chances of placing in the top three.
But it still was a pageant that had no ONE dominant delegate. The contest was so keenly fought that the ladies all shared in the pie of success. The prize for Best Promotional Video was given to Barbados; Miss Photogenic-Miss Montserrat; Miss Amity- Anguilla; Best Swimwear-Miss St. Lucia; Best talent-Miss Montserrat, who delivered a splendid presentation in a dramatic story-telling piece about insanity.
To complete the evening, the Green House Band provided superb “house band” musical accompaniment that helped to lift the quality of the overall show and production. The reigning queen was St. Lucia’s Oneka McCoy.
This is the second year St. Kitts has won the crown. Previously, in 2009, Mariece Roberts won the title.
