    People need to stop bashing Miss BVI. Where was the out cry last year when Miss Dominica who is short fat, with no talent and brain was given the crown over BVI. Last year Miss Dominica only had a beautiful face. This year Miss BVI was a great contestant like last year and I not even from BVI.

      Not cool. You want to chastise for “bashing” Ms. BVI yet you do the same to someone else. That makes you no better than those you chastise. Hypocrite.

    U all need to accept it. Sharice won. Judges decisions is final. Get over it. She has poise, she is intelligent, speaks well, and the list goes on. Please, please get over it. Stop it now, she is the winner. Her family, friends and Totolians, got her back.

    I would just like to congratulate my cousin. She is a beautiful, intelligent, God-fearing, anointed and appointed woman of God,!!!! As I read these negative comments I am saddened by the awful attacks on someone who is beautiful inside and out. Sharie deCastro does not need this crown to make her royalty, her royalty was bestowed upon her by the sacred Blood of Jesus Christ. No one, nothing, no weapon formed against a Child of the Most High God can prosper.

    You may write her down in history
    With your bitter, twisted lies,
    You may trod her in the very dirt
    But still, like dust, she’ll rise.

    Does her sassiness upset you?
    Why are you beset with gloom?
    ‘Cause she walks like she got oil wells
    Pumping in her living room.

    Just like moons and like suns,
    With the certainty of tides,
    Just like hopes springing high,
    Still she will rise.

      for true… but they keep stopping all the good looking women from coming into the country.. they only allowing a set of male criminals. but as soon as a dark skin beauty walk into the airport, they start treating them like prostitutes.

          Oh you sad Human being” I actually find myself feel sorry for people like you. I bet you’re of of those people that like to scream in justice when things don’t go your way. Hmmm, like I said sad. As I read these comments it seems like everyone that think she didn’t deserve to win felt that way because they didn’t feel she was pretty enough. Glad to know you live in a world where only looks matter. I’m sure the 1st runner up and the rest of the contestants that you felt was pretty enough came into the show thinking their beauty was going to get them the crown. Well, small minded people it take more than looks to represent a country. Looks is the last thing you want in someone that represents you as a people. Some of these young lady couldn’t form a proper sentence if their life depended on it. The prettiest young lady in the show in her interview couldn’t differentiate the two words “Day and They”. Her Grammar was as ugly as they come and yet I see no one getting on her about this. Again I say “SAD”!

    Just speaking in general seeing most of the comments are based on her “weight”! If you haven’t noticed but speaking about her weight and how she needs to eat and as in the words of a commenter they need to feed her “bread” Don’t you know thats some sort of BULLYING! Think about it! You may be messing with her self confidence people! Stop going off of what you feeling and think before you speak! Now if someone says you just an overweight snob behind the computer, you’re gonna be quick to respond! As a YOUTH, I’m disappointed in these comments! BVI News you seem to not care how bad of a low blow these people commenting…oh well as usual i’m starting to get really immune to this kind of behaviour! *shaking my head*

    I’m pretty sure being tied with Miss Dominica wasn’t the only thing that gave her the crown. You can’t focus on one criteria and call foul play. Talent, intellect and the interview carries the most points. Think about that and do the math….

    just real talk- if i were walking down the street she wouldn’t turn my head, i saw a couple of those girls before the show and i almost crash. Sorry, she is pretty, no doubt, stunning? nope. We always do this, we prop ppl up and then when they fail we say “oh they were against us”. Its like the local pageants where we fight out certain ppl cause they dont have the right name and then when they go outside and fail so bad we wonder why. Lets be real, she’s smart, but it’s a PAGEANT, thats why you have best evening gown – not highest IQ. Best talent – not best theoretical particle acceleration dissertation. Si, on looks? We know she won cause 2 of the judges know her very personally and attend the same church.
    just being real man.

      All i’m ready from your comment is that we must have a GORGEGOUS queen with a DUMB brain! Let’s just throw in the prettiest girl who has no brain to reign as our queen or any queen! Let’s see what you’ll say about that when she starts answering tough interviewing question and she don’t know how to answer in a professional and knowledgeable manner. The first thing you’re gonna say why they pick this dumb girl as our queen! Just sit down and give the girl props!

BUT BEST SWIMWEAR?! YOU OVERING! Somebody need to feed her a steady diet of PORK and WHITEBREAD put on that weight cause I KNOW she would look great with a little WEIGHT.

If I was judge she would have had hell with me especially with that Voodoo type like national costume..She nee to go and come again…and her chaperon and others in her group needs to learn manners. They were totally out of control.

Cant change it so just live with it or like one person blog “they gone Dominica” just go if it effects you so much. Never hear so much negative nonsense in my life. Soo many things in this country to fix and needs our attention as a people and all you on every news line talking negativity about this young lady who went on stage and put her all into her performance and won. Where the judges came from does not matter. They saw a beautiful, talented, intelligent young lady that night and scored her the highest and she won the show. Get over it people and move on…shocksitman!!

    They already steal and give her the crown. Best in swim wear REALLY everyone looked better in swim wear than her. And that wasnt the best dress. What is the sense have a show when you know u gonna give it to ur country. This reminds me of jaycess in antigua . Antigua always get it deserve or not and from the judges change it had for them to get it.
