MISS BAHAMAS PRE-ASSESSMENT......THE FINAL GROUP HAS BEEN ADDED!!!!!!! SEE HOW YOUR FAVOURITES RANKED!!!!!

Post  Aiden on Wed Apr 14, 2010 3:50 am

-102-- Welcome to Aiden's Miss Bahamas Pre-Assessment Review!!!! -102--


Each Contestant will be evaluated in three main categories: Photo Presentation, Swimsuit and Interview on a scale from 1 - 10.

Let us begin with Group 1.


NAME: Alia Sands
AGE: 22
HAIR COLOR: Dark Brown
EYE COLOR: Brown
HEIGHT: 55




I. Photo Presentation - 7.175
II. Swimsuit - 7.75
III. Interview - 8.374
Final Score - 7.76

Alia is an attractive girl....with a nice cool savy to her look and voice. She strikes me more of a professional woman type...the one you see dressed in an office in power-suits. That's not a bad thing....but her look doesn't really translate to a pageant type beauty. Her body is okay but she's not as lean as the photo suggests she can improve more. Also at 5ft 5 her height doesn't really give her much advantage. She has nice skin and her hair is neat in the photo....As for communication skills she speaks fairly well....but can come accross a bit dull and lack luster. In the end, I think she presented herself to the best of her ability!




NAME: Amy Sands
AGE: 27
HAIR COLOR: Black
EYE COLOR: Dark Brown
HEIGHT: 53




I. Photo Presentation - 7.75
II. Swimsuit - 8.35
III. Interview - 8.55
Final Score - 8.21

Despite being short...(yeah she's like 5ft 3")...Amy is a strong communicator....she knows how to conduct herself in an interview and how to get her points across. She just needs to work on her elocution because she can sound monotonous at times. This girl has a fairly attractive face...pretty...I love the shape of her eyes....they are expressive...and she does have nice hair.....her body is lean....but her height is a factor. As the competition continues we will have to see if she capitalizes on what she has and makes the first cut....but I don't see her going to the top 5.




NAME: Anastagia Pierre
AGE: 21
HAIR COLOR: Brown
EYE COLOR: Hazel
HEIGHT: 5 10




I. Photo Presentation - 9.15
II. Swimsuit - 9.07
III. Interview - 9.56
Final Score - 9.26

Anastagia, Anastagia, Anastagia.....this girl is a chameleon....She knows how to go from being demure to being fierce...and then to an amped up sex-vixen....not sex-kitten, but sex-vixen....remember she's FIERCE!!!!....that is why she chose the Phoenix as her animal spirit. Anastagia has an interesting face....the eye will always be drawn to it and will search it for many things....expression, health, youth, beauty...etc. I'm in love with her eyes'....even though they are a little wide set I love their colour. Her body is very womanly....it's curvy...lean and curvy....and she does have wide hips....not necessarily a bad thing....however her strongest asset for me are her communication skills......She speaks very well and knows how to gesture, express and convey her thoughts without being excess. She seems very natural in interview and has impeccable eye contact (it's like she has been here before)....She also has a very nice smile!.....My prediction definite top 3. However, As the frontrunner she will have to work hard to keep it because there are others who could upset her status!




NAME: Azaria Clare
AGE: 20
HAIR COLOR: Black
EYE COLOR: Dark Brown
HEIGHT: 6 1




I. Photo Presentation - 8.9
II. Swimsuit - 8.12
III. Interview - 7.92
Final Score - 8.31

I like Azaria's pics.....she's really cute....her smile....her spunk...and I love her hair....very NICE!!!...She's also one of the tallest girls in the pageant standing at 6ft 1". She has a fairly decent body; lean with legs for days...YUM!!!....She has a very nice skin tone and expressive eyes. Yet, I felt that her interview was a bit weak...She was a bit boring for me in the tone of voice....she does need to work on elocution and also on enunciation. It's not good to drop the endings of words...She could be a little more expressive. However, if she pulls her self together she could make the first cut....




NAME: Braneka Bassett
AGE: 20
HAIR COLOR: Brown
EYE COLOR: Brown
HEIGHT: 5 9




I. Photo Presentation - 9.21
II. Swimsuit - 9.86
III. Interview - 8.6
Final Score - 9.22

Braneka is the "Face of the Pageant" and this years "Miss Photogenic".....she knows how to bring it in every picture....I love her features....her face is soooooo gorgeous and those eyes are to die for.....I'm also very impressed with her posture and I can tell that she has experience as a model. She knows what to do. Braneka also has the best body in the pageant. Her body is proportionate, lean, toned, yet curvy and sexy. She is also a chameleon and can transfrom from a Sex-Goddess to a Demure, Elegant Beauty. I love her hair especially when it's straight and wind blown. I can see Braneka doing well at both Miss Universe and Miss World if crowned. Her frame is also very good for carrying elegant Haute Couture dresses. Inside sources have made me aware that Braneka is a favourite of current Miss Universe Stefania. She fell in love with Braneka's look and overall presentation. Braneka is a fairly decent communicator but that's an area that she needs to work on. I know that it's her personality to be spunky and natural but she should work on her elocution. At times she sounded like the cute girl from Brooklyn and then She sounded like the girl from up-town Freeport. She also needs to watch her gestures. They were a bit excess for me. The head twitch from side to side was distracting. However, I do love her expression as well as smile which lights up the room. My prediction, definite top 3!!!!!



Coming Soon, Contestants Pre-Assessment Group 2!!!!

Great reviews Aiden...however, I found Braneka's interview to be great...it sounded very genuine and natural and yes, she made some gestures, but I think it was fine.....we've seen those kind of interviews before and the girls went on doing well in the pageant...one name that comes to mind is Dayana Mendoza...her interview was sincere and from the heart.

That's true Canuck....I liked her interview but I'm evaluating them from a communication specialist point of view, which I am......so while it was good there are areas she can improve on. Trust me tho....this girl is shining!!!!

I agree with Canuck1986. I found Braneka's interview to be refreshing, to say the least. Very natural, down to earth, and AUTHENTIC! She was the most believable, no signs of rehearsed answers like some of the others. You can tell she does not have any pageant experience, and I mean that in a GOOD way, as opposed to the pageant veterans who came across as if they were just going through the motions, as they were taught to.

...my take

Post  blackmagic on Fri Apr 16, 2010 11:41 am

excellent reviews aiden! down to each detail you are spot on! ...good job

ill tell you like i see it - as far as i am concerned there are but two girls in this pageant (anastagia and braneka) the bahamas will and can only benefit from FIERCE queens to compete globally - for years now we have been the nation of clappers and as such the girl we send must be able to break that monotony and stun and surprise and win the world over the way leah did for barbados at miss world... but this time even more... braneka is a natural girl who does not need softening in her photos...she actually looks better with less make up...she actually is more stunning in candids - not many people can boast of that ability to transfer real-time into fierce...two nights ago braneka tore up during rehearsals and all who in attendance saw her as the 'girl to beat' - to me, she is the most well rounded for both pageants and will definitely earn the bahamas a placement and or maybe even the crown if chosen queen...

anastagia is no doubt a beautiful girl - she is a pageant veteran AND that may work against her - her energy and movement seems to be predicated by technique and not soul...it shows...in her eyes and in her movement...also working against her is her signature look - she has a distinct beauty (almost too distinct) and her face can come across almost mask-like - this concernes me because the right person evaluating her ma either love or not love...for the stakes we are up against in the bahamas and with a potential stunner and possibly the top black beauty in the pageants...id say dont gamble and send braneka...

MISS BAHAMAS PRE-ASSESSMENT.........GROUP 2!!!!!!

Post  Aiden on Sat Apr 17, 2010 2:42 am

HEY EVERYONE.....WOW WHAT A WEEK....I'VE BEEN BUSY AT WORK...AND COMING HOME AFTER HOURS....SO MY APOLOGIES FOR BEING A LITTLE LATE.....NOW THAT THE WEEKEND IS HERE I'VE GOT SOME MORE TIME.....SO LET US CONTINUE WITH GROUP 2!!!!!!

NAME: Carol Cassandra Stubbs
AGE: 19
HAIR COLOR: Black
EYE COLOR: Dark Brown
HEIGHT: 57




I. Photo Presentation - 8.08
II. Swimsuit - 7.95
III. Interview - 7.37
Final Score - 7.8

Carol is a cute girl.....genuine smile...I LOVE HER SMILE!!!!....she has a cute face and a fairly decent body. Her hair is nice and she does present a little charm. However, her look in pictures doesn't fully translate to the video and leaves one wondering.....is that the really cute girl from the pic....huh!?....she speaks fairly well but does need to work on her enunciation of words. In my opinion she is among the weaker of the bunch...but who knows....she can improve...and the judges may see something in her that I don't....don't get me wrong...I'm not pegging her to win....but if she improves herself she could make first cut....but nothing more....



NAME: Deonva Ayiesha Bodie
AGE: 18
HAIR COLOR: Black
EYE COLOR: Brown
HEIGHT: 58




I. Photo Presentation - 8.01
II. Swimsuit - 8.22
III. Interview - 6.09
Final Score - 7.44

Deonva has a voluptuous face....in fact she is a voluptuous girl....I love her sultry sexy look with the dark eyes and pouty lips. Her hair is also very nice and she comes across a bit diva-ish in her pictures. Her body is nice as well and I think she did fairly well in her poses. However, I was disappointed with her interview and her expression on video. Could someone PLEASE get this girl a speech/vocal coach!!!! I felt like I would die listening to her (maybe I should help with her speech). Her pronunciation and enunciation were not at the level it should be for someone competing in a national pageant. Her inteview was lifeless and boring and the sound of her voice really caused me to want to not watch anymore. If she had to go on her looks in the pictures I would say she could make it....but after seeing her on camera (she looked bored and tired) and listening to her voice I don't see her going anywhere at this point!



NAME: Dolnesha Serena Wemyss
AGE: 20
HAIR COLOR: Brown
EYE COLOR: Brown
HEIGHT: 5ft 4 inches



I. Photo Presentation - 8.23
II. Swimsuit - 8.6
III. Interview - 9.03
Final Score - 8.62

"Dolly" Wemyss......She's cute, really cute....I like her eyes...she has a cute smile....a nice little lean body....too bad she's short.....and I love the way she speaks. What I don't like about her is her hair. I don't want to look at a girl and know that she's wearing weave. I'd prefer to look at her and not know that what she has is weave or know but be able to comment on how "good" it looks. Even in the picture I could tell that she has on weave....It is not fixed properly. That is a HUGE problem.....Now who to blame...well...let's not go there. All in all this girl is a wonderful communicator and she has a cute face and nice body....but she doesn't have height....and is not vavavooom like some of the other short girls in the pageant. Can she make it....sure....if she fixes the weave (I love women with their own hair...it feels better to the touch Wink ). I could see her making the first cut!



NAME: Immacula Pierre
AGE: 26
HAIR COLOR: Dark Brown
EYE COLOR: Dark Brown
HEIGHT: 57




I. Photo Presentation - 7.862
II. Swimsuit - 7.5
III. Interview - 8.34
Final Score - 7.9

Immacula has the look to be a print model....maybe for a hair or skin magazine or campaign. Her body is okay....however, I wasn't to crazy about her pose in swimsuit.....she looked "scrunched up" and without a neck....Love her long legs tho. On camera, she's not the best looking girl in the bunch but there is a quiet attractiveness about her.....to me she is one of those girls that can look amazing with heavy makeup (I prefer my women to be drop dead gorgeous "washed-face" beauties, where she still looks breathtakingly amazing without makeup). One really awesome thing about Immacula is that she is a fairly decent communicator. I thought she did pretty good in interview. She can improve her enunciation and elocution as well as the pronunciation of some of the words (she tends to speak a bit broad and flat when it comes to long open vowels). I think Immacuala could make first cut....Winning...I don't see it!



NAME: Janay Pyfrom
AGE: 22
HAIR COLOR: Brown
EYE COLOR: Brown
HEIGHT: 5'5
WEIGHT: 105




I. Photo Presentation - 9.02
II. Swimsuit - 9.71
III. Interview - 8.88
Final Score - 9.20

Oh JANAAAYYYY......This girl is my sentimental favourite and is the recipient of this year's "Chrystal Bethell" Award....meaning she is the girl with the look, the body, the attitude, the walk, but not the right height. If Janay was 5ft 10" she would be considered a frontrunner to win the crown.....She is a frontrunner to me....not for the win....but for one of the other titles (I think she would make a nice Miss Earth Bahamas). I love this girl's look. She is stunning and quite photogenic and I was very impressed with her on television. She has nice hair....but what I love most about her is her skin, her eyes, her lips and that body....She is very proportionate (too bad she's short).....Janay is also a STRONG communicator, she's fun and bubbly....but she can improve in her elocution and enunciation. Her gestures were okay and she kept reasonable eye contact. My prediction definitely one of the runner ups and possibly a shoo in for one of the other titles like Miss Earth Bahamas or Miss TQUI!!!

Keep watch this weekend for groups 3 and 4!!!!!!

Interesting thoughts BMG......I am lovin' Braneka more and more....I was able to watch the Miss Bahamas Backstage Pass Reality TV show on ZNS.....and I was impressed. All of the girls were well put together and a lot o them actually looked better on camera screen than in the photos themselves. This competition is between Anastagia and Braneka but I have to agree with you on Braneka. After seeing her tonight.....WOW...I was completely enamoured....I do believe that Braneka's look can fit both pageants and I'm really lovin' her more and more.

As for Anastagia....she does seem to be stuck with one look and she has to go by whether her distinct look is in or out. I know that she is still a strong contender....

Yet, at this point....I'm really considering Braneka more and more!!!!!

MISS BAHAMAS PRE-ASSESSMENT.........FINAL GROUP!!!!!

Post  Aiden on Sun Apr 18, 2010 1:58 am

WITH SEVEN GIRLS LEFT TO ASSESS.....I DECIDED TO PLACE ALL OF THEM INTO ONE FINAL GROUP INSTEAD OF SPLITTING THEM UP......SO HERE THEY ARE.........THE FINAL SEVEN CONTESTANTS VYING FOR THE TITLE OF MISS BAHAMAS 2010!!!!!!




NAME: Kastachia C. Stuart
AGE: 22
HAIR COLOR: Dark Brown
EYE COLOR: Dark Brown
HEIGHT: 58




I. Photo Presentation - 8.22
II. Swimsuit - 8.6
III. Interview - 7.49
Final Score - 8.10

Kastachia is an attractive girl. Her beauty is in her skin, smile and full eyes. Her body is in good shape and she was able to pull off the "lean-forward seated" pose (her photo was a bit stronger than Immacula's because I was able to see her neck). However, her communication skills are quite bland for me. She tends to drag her words and drop their endings. She is not able to think fluidly on her feet, hence the speech crutches of uhmmms and aaaahhs!!!. She also needs to be more aware of her angles and facial expressions as she already has bold features and it does not look nice when she makes certain facial expressions (like screwing up her mouth....not cute No ) If she improves her communication skills I can see her making the first cut....but nothing further!




NAME: Kendra Beneby
AGE:
EYE COLOUR: Brown
HAIR COLOUR: Brown
HEIGHT:




I. Photo Presentation - 7.44
II. Swimsuit - 8.25
III. Interview - 8.9
Final Score - 8.19

This "Whitney Houston look-a-like" (according to a friend of mine but I can see it a little) by the name of Kendra Beneby is quite an interesting girl. I prefer her look in candids and videos than this photo of which I believe is among the weakest of the bunch. Not trying to be negative here....but her styling is all wrong in this photo and the hair is a mess....also the lighting makes her look washed out and bleached. However, she is a "cute" girl with a fairly decent body and lovely long legs. She speaks very well and is a decent communicator. In my opinion, a girl with her features is better suited for modeling (trust me I have seen her portfolio and that is her calling) and she does have the body for "Haute Couture" fashion (her body and features reminds me a little of Katoucha Niane). All in all, she is a girl who can work off of the moment if styled correctly (meaning minimal makeup and her hair with a simple style pulled back and not covering her face). She could pull a surprise placement. However, I don't see her making top 5.




NAME: Lataj Henfield
AGE: 19
HAIR COLOR: Black
EYE COLOR: Dark Brown
HEIGHT: 5 10




I. Photo Presentation - 8.11
II. Swimsuit - 8.24
III. Interview - 8.35
Final Score - 8.23

Lataj is girl who looks so much better in candids and on television. I was able to see her up close on the Miss Bahamas Backstage Pass reality TV show, and I was amazed at how good she looked. She is quite pretty and has a very nice body. She presents herself well, and gets along well with all of the other girls. She speaks fairly well, and shows that she is able to conduct herself well in an interview. I do believe that Lataj is a girl who can make a surprise runner up finish....I don't see her winning but I could see her as a runner up if she performs well enough.....prediction top 10!




NAME: Lathyra Tinker
AGE: 19
HAIR COLOR: Dark Brown
EYE COLOR: Dark Brown
HEIGHT: 53




I. Photo Presentation - 9.16
II. Swimsuit - 8.6
III. Interview - 8.63
Final Score - 8.79

Lathyra Tinker.....our first semifinalist (she won the sportswoman award last week), is such a gorgeous lady in a very tiny package....(yeah she's 5ft 3).....However, despite being short this petite hottie has shown that she has the spunk, the pizzazz, the face, the body (I love her petite lean yet curvy frame), the intelligence and the ability to become noticed. She is very photogenic (I love her features especially her eyes...WOW!!!) and has one of the stronger photo presentations in this pageant (Braneka has the strongest). This foxy lady is just as gorgeous in pics as she is in video and on television....(yeah she's really hot...too bad she's sooo short)...If she was 5ft 11 with the same proportions, this girl would do some serious damage (I MEAN SERIOUS)....she speaks well, has a strong drive and is determined to succeed. But, let's be real....she's tiny....tiny girls don't win Miss Universe or even Miss World (she would be nice arm and bed candy for me Twisted Evil )....well not in this time period. I like her a lot and I do believe that she would be a strong runner up!....I could see her as a part of the top 5 but not top 3!



NAME: Maxine Louis
AGE: 24
HAIR COLOR: Black
EYE COLOR: Black
HEIGHT: 57




I. Photo Presentation - 7.18
II. Swimsuit - 8.58
III. Interview - 7.13
Final Score 7.63

Maxine, Maxine, Maxine.....If you want to find a "down-home Bahamianese speaking girl" who just enjoys simple island life and thinking then this girl is it. Her beauty is in her luminous skin and expressive eyes. She has a very good body and knows how to pose (the photo with her stretched out on the car was a very good pose). Maxine is not the most facially stunning but her look works well for a Miss Culture Queen. Her biggest downfall is her speech. She speaks with a drag and a bit of a drawl. She drops the endings of words and doesn't really enunciate properly. Many Bahamians believe that to be Bahamian you must speak the dialect or "broken english" always....but the reality is that there should be a separation between the two. There is a time to use the dialect which is suitable for speaking among friends, family or a social environment....but for an international/national pageant interview, or an interview in general the dialect should only be used to add emphasis to a metaphor or an idea, which adds a little spice to the language. Otherwise it is more appropriate to use Standard English which is the official language of the Bahamas. So sorry, Maxine, until you can use standard english properly then I will have to say no! No



NAME: Shakell Yvia Seymour
AGE: 25
HAIR COLOR: Black
EYE COLOR: Dark Brown
HEIGHT: 58




I. Photo Presentation - 8.18
II. Swimsuit - 8.17
III. Interview - 7.91
Final Score - 8.08

What I love most about Shakell is her hair!!!!....I love a woman with healthy, vibrant, full, and shiny hair!.....She got the highest score for hair from me out of all the girls (her hair score is 9.25). Another feature that I love about Shakell is her slight resemblance to American actress Lynn Whitfield. What I don't like about Shakell is her communication and interview skills. She is BORING in interview. My goodness, not to mention I was a bit fed up with her listless, contrite and unfinished answers to the questions. I was like "think girl, think!!!!"....I know it's a beauty pageant but hey we are looking for the total package. All in all, if she were to be more vivacious in interview and improve in this area I could see her pulling a top 10 placment....but for now...I think she may just be suited to make the first cut!




NAME: Sharie M. Delva
AGE: 23
HAIR COLOR: Black
EYE COLOR: Dark Brown

Pageant Veteran Sharie Delva has returned again to try her hand at winning the Miss Bahamas 2010 pageant. Sharie is well known in the pageant circles. I remember her frist stint when she tried at 17 to win the title of Miss World Bahamas in 2003 which was put on by another organization before the MBO headed by Michelle Malcolm. Sharie, in my opinion, is a pretty girl but her look doesn't fully captivate me. She has fairly attractive features, a decent body, lovely skin and height....but her look is boring. To me she doesn't pop. I know she will make the first cut but does she have the drive to make it further????....she can come accross stunning in pics but in others she can seem pretty mediocre. However, she is among the stronger contestants in this pageant and can capitalize on the moment and become a runner up....a winnner??...I think not...but a runner up finish is possible for this dusky beauty!



Here are the Pre-Pageant Scores for the 17 contestants vying for the title of Miss Bahamas 2010 from highest to lowest:

1. Anastagia Pierre - 9.26
2. Braneka Bassestt - 9.22
3. Janay Pyfrom - 9.20
4. Lathyra Tinker - 8.79
5. Dolnesha "Dolly" Weymss - 8.62
6. Sharie Delva - 8.59
7. Azaria Cleare - 8.31
8. Lataj Henfield - 8.23
9. Amy Sands - 8.21
10. Kendra Beneby - 8.19
11. Kastachia Stuart - 8.10
12. Shakell Seymour - 8.08
13. Immacula Pierre - 7.90
14. Carol Stubbs - 7.80
15. Alia Sands - 7.76
16. Maxine Louis - 7.63
17. Deonva Bodie - 7.44

I've come to the end of my assessment. Who are YOUR favourites?????....who would YOU like to see wear the Beautiful crown of Miss Bahamas to become the first ever contestant placement or winner of the Miss Universe or Miss World Crowns respectively????.....Well, YOU tell ME!!!!!.....I would love to hear YOUR comments and views!.....Thank you and stay tuned for updates on the girls in the official Road to Miss Bahamas thread. Also, a big CONGRATULATIONS goes out to Lathyra Tinker for winning the sportswoman title and becoming the first semifinalist in the Miss Bahamas Beauty Pageant 2010. CONGRATULATIONS LATHYRA!!!!!!........

I insist on Braneka and Anastagia as my sec favorite strong gal. Both are a breath of fresh air but Braneka....omg.....she has this "stop and stare" effect on me.Janay and Lathyra i agree are the girls to give also a good competetion.

Great job from Aiden,loved reading it.

Thanks Tidus and Canuck Smile ....I'm really really excited......Braneka is my frontrunner now....she is the total package and has what it takes to win both pageants. I still like Anastagia a lot and I wouldn't be upset if she won.....however, Anastagia is a love her hate her type of contestant.....What I've come to realize about Anastagia is that her face is undeniably beautiful....and I may have underestimated how her look translates on Camera.....so I may have to award her the "Face of the Pageant" title.....It's kinda sad that we have two strong girls competing for just one crown......I wish I could crown both....but for now...Braneka is IT!!!! and I want to see her win....she is BEAUTIFUL!!!!.....Look out for my final assessment of the girls between this weekend and next.
