(CNS): With this year’s winner of the Miss Cayman Islands Universe competition still facing charges of assault, the local pageant committee has said that 1st Runner-Up Chloe Powery-Doxey will represent the Cayman Islands at the Miss Universe Pageant in New Orleans on 14 January. Tiffany Conolly’s criminal trial may not be settled before the Miss Universe pageant begins and even if she dodges a conviction, it appears it will be too late for her to compete.

In a short statement released Tuesday evening, the committee said both Powery-Doxey and 2nd Runner-Up Hayley Grizzel would continue to act in the community as alternates for Conolly until further notice. “The Miss Cayman Islands Universe Committee supports Miss Powery-Doxey on her journey to the world stage and wishes her all the best as she represents the Cayman Islands at the international pageant,” the committee said.

There has been no indication whether or not Conolly, who is due back in Summary Court on 5 December as her trial continues, is still receiving the stipend as the official winner or if either Powery-Doxey and Grizzel will now be paid for their public appearances.

The committee has stated that the decision to allow Conolly to compete was confirmed by the tourism ministry, which sponsors the Miss Universe and Miss World local pageants and the winners act as ambassadors promoting the Cayman Islands as a destination.

    “Cayman Boards” have a requirement that all Members/Directors have PHD’s in “Monumental F-Ups”.

    This nonsense makes a completely mockery of the competition, which should be stopped in any case. The people of the Cayman Islands should boycott this event, and parents should encourage their daughters not to be exploited in this demeaning way.

    Will she be getting vaccinated? To enter the United States you must be vaccinated and earlier information indicated she is is/was an anti-vaxxer.

    And in the meantime Ms Conolly continues to hold the title ,forcing her runner up to compete as a runner up rather than a winner, and to receive the scholarship and the stipend from the Department of Tourism whilst not actually having to do any work for the Department or to represent Cayman. Sounds fair.

    Every single one on the committee needs to be FIRED. TERMINATED. ELIMINATED.

    This was so easy a decision to make and they have screwed it up multiple times.

    The level of incompetence is mind bogling.

      Small islands. Low friends in High places. Simple as that. Do you want to piss off your cousin? your brother in law? sister in law? aunt? uncle?

      That how Cayman works first and foremost. People talk about the lodge etc. Not at all.

    Thought the second runner up went to LA v cause the first couldn’t enter the US as unvaccinated?

      How does she get to New Orleans in January if she’s unvaxed? Good grief were there any posted criteria for this “contest”?

        Vaccination status is not something that could be planned for, much less this committee preparing for it. You’re giving them too much credit. Baby steps.

        She doesn’t. But perhaps she changed her opposition to vaccination when a trip to NO was on offer. Or perhaps the committee are so mind boggling my dim they don’t realize she will need to be vaccinated to enter the US.

        Maybe she just recently got vaccinated maybe just 2 get 2 go away on the airplane for a little trip off the Cayman Islands to get a little air out from all that is happening around her

    What s*** show, how was the Miss Cayman committee so oblivious to what Tiffany Conolly was facing in court when everyone else knew?

    With such a high profile case in the mind of many people, it is obvious this is the time to change the rules of entry requirements and what really happens if the winner is ‘demoted’ or relinguished of her title.

    I am glad the first runner-up has agreed to step in to represent our beautiful islands, but should she not also receive the prizes awarded to the title holder?

    I think an automatic swop of the prizes must come with the agreed automatic swop of who represents these islands. If not, the title holder ‘breaks it off on the Cayman Islands’ Government’ as we older folks would say.

      Best wishes Chloe, I’m sure you’ll represent us well.

      Tiffany did not even have the personal grace or mental fitness to step aside in the best interests of the Cayman Islands and/or the pageant she represented. Poor character example and terrible ambassadorial role model. Cayman’s chapter should administer one closing out tour and then do us the service of voluntarily disbanding this incompetent chapter. Miss Universe has moved to Thailand anyway.

      ‘This is the time to change the rules’

      Once again ‘Govt c-carditism’ exposes the mind set of many, – if there are no rules it’s all perfectly acceptable, those with ethical standards need not apply
