Miss Cayman Islands in preliminary rounds of Miss Universe

(CNS): Like contestants from all the other small countries, Miss Cayman Islands is at a distinct disadvantage when it comes to the people’s vote in the international pageant, Miss Universe. But the whole country is being urged to go online and show their support for Monyque Brooks in the online poll. Miss Cayman has been in the thick of the qualifying rounds for the international pageant this week ahead of the final, which will be broadcast live on Sunday 29 January from the Philippines.

Brooks has been dressing up in a national costume inspired by the sea, evening gowns and a detailed white bikini for the swimsuit round, which the pageant has retained. The preliminary contest can be viewed on the Miss Universe website and the national dress round will be streamed this evening. Fans can also visit the site to vote for Miss Cayman Islands.

There are 86 contestants in the beauty contest battle for the crown. Alongside the dress-up rounds, the women also undergo an interview process over three days to whittle the field down to the final 12 contestants who will appear on the live show.

    Young lady, put your clothes on. Tell us why you are so deserving and intelligent. These pageants are meat markets.

    I think it’s hilarious and disgusting the the Philippines president had to take special measures not to use foul language and tell rape jokes at a ceremony with the contestants.

    No thanks, there are much more important things to get involved with other than these worthless contests.

    As a well known comic commentator has said – ” How come the ” Miss Universe ” contest is always won by someone from Earth ? “. It is in itself a charade.
    A total waste of money for Cayman whose entrant, however beautiful, will never win.

    We should be redirecting publicly-funded pageant dollars into lifting up women for an equal life in the 21st Century, rather than pandering to backward misogynistic ideals of the last. Can’t believe these pageants still exist.

    Didn’t this pageant become redundant once porn was readily available on the internet?
