Miss Universe 2021: Davina Bennett, Miss Universe Jamaica 2017, finished third in Miss Universe that year and created a sensation due to the fact that she played a natural Afro, firmly behind her fellow Jamaicans.
“I have known her for quite some time. Many people don’t know that she entered the pageant during my year but withdrew due to some personal issues. She is very beautiful and ready and as a Jamaican, I am just waiting for her performance and pray that she does well, ”Bennett told the Jamaica Observer during a telephone interview.
Bennett said that she has reached out to the reigning queen and shared a few moments with her based on her experience. “I know what it is like and how stressful it can be when you expect too much of yourself and on top of that, the country expects a lot from you. So I just told him to stay focused and be true to himself. It is important that he does not focus on winning, but rather live in that moment and give the full experience that he has got, ”said Bennett.
“The biggest lesson I learned from participating in Miss Universe was that winning is not everything. I was so focused on winning that I lost in so many moments. I was so competitive that throughout the experience All my energy went there instead of drowning. ”
Bennett’s third place is only improved by Yandy Phillips, who placed second in 2010, and she joins other local beauties such as Sandra Foster, Kimberly Mises, Nicole Houghton, Christine Straw, and Kaci Fennell, who has played internationally. But made it to the semi-finals. Pageant
Miss Jamaica Mikel-Simone Williams secured a top ten spot in the Miss Universe 2021 competition. Williams, who won the judge’s heart with her confidence and smile, reached the top ten after completing the swimsuit portion of the competition.
The upcoming semi-final round will be dedicated to the Evening Gown Parade. We think Williams’ Uzuri gown may be joined by the judges.
Out of a total of 74 contestants, Williams eased into their top ten spots with attractions and pizzazz. The initial 74 contestants were narrowed down to 21 semifinalists, and after the traditional swimsuit round, the top 10 were revealed. Jamaica was first called with India, Peru, Australia, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Thailand, Costa Rica, Brazil, and Mexico.
Carl Williams, director and co-franchise holder of the local Miss Universe Jamaica pageant, said the organization is happy and excited about the future of Mikel-Simone Williams. She said the Jamaican representative was the “winner in her books” and it was unfortunate that she did not appear in the question section. “He’s very fast,” Carl Williams said.
Of course, Miss Universe 2019 can win only one crown from Zozibini Tunzi. The longest-reigning Miss Universe announced on stage at the end of the night that Miss Universe Mexico would be Andrea Meza’s successor.
