After 9 Year Hiatus, Miss Universe Barbados returns… No Height, Weight nor Race preferred – Confident Beauties welcomed!
The newly established Crown Events Inc. announced over the weekend at Limegrove’s Lifestyle Centre how they acquired the rights to produce the national event to send a contestant to the prestigious Miss Universe® pageant for 2016.
The official name of the contest will be Miss Universe® Barbados and will change the culture of the Miss Universe Pageant in Barbados, offering a very unique opportunity to the contestants, with image building, health & fitness, beauty and confidence seminars, combined with a myriad of social and corporate networking commitments. The pageant intends to become the opportunity for the young ladies of Barbados to truly become “Confidently Beautiful.
One major difference is they’ll have Open Castings for the delegates. There will be no more closed-door selection of ladies. All ladies 18-27 with a valid Barbadian passport, who meet the MISS UNIVERSE® requirements, are welcome to enter. No size zero is a must; no 5’9″ or taller, be you white, black or Indian-descent or a mix between? All are welcome to compete!
