The 22 years old Kingston bred beauty queen became an instant favorite. She had the package to win the title: beautiful, graceful, sophisticated, intelligent, poised. In addition, she’s a big key contributor to “Style For Change,” a charity in Jamaica which focuses on helping the victims of natural disasters and the poverty-stricken.

So when Miss Jamaica was announced as the 4th runner up, an echo of boo’s were chanted from different countries as they disapprove of the judges’ decision. It became a controversial pageant as Twitter started trending #MissJamaicaShouldHaveWon right after they announced Miss Colombia, as the new Miss Universe. The room was in a mix uproar, audible boo’s and claps while Paulina Vega takes the crown.

The angry and disappointed viewers voiced out the ff:
1.) Miss Jamaica was robbed off the title of Miss Universe.
2.) Some of the judges did not deserve and was not credible enough to be on the panel.
3.) Judges were not ready for a beauty queen who wears their hair short.

Miss Jamaica shares, “I don’t have long tresses like everyone else, I’m just representing myself and that’s what beauty pageants are all about.”

4.) The judges did not agree with her bold and honest answer that Usain Bolt is the world’s fastest runner and that Bob Marley’s music were Jamaica’s greatest worldwide contributions.

Finally, her alluring and ravishing red dress reminds you of the exquisite Hollywood icon, Audrey Hepburn. Kaci Fennell’s exotic looks added to the flavor.

“I love Audrey (Hepburn), not just for her beautiful face but for her beautiful soul. She lent most of her life being an ambassador for UNICEF. She created housing schemes in Africa, facilitated access to clean water and access to education for those struck by poverty. Who wouldn’t admire a woman like that?” told Jamaica Observer.
