These young women are not only beautiful but also highly educated and talented. Among them are attorneys at law, one with 19 grade 1’s, and nearly all are degree holders or in pursuit of one.

We even had candidates with bachelor’s and master’s degrees.” She also advised, “Those who didn’t make it should walk away confidently and consider trying again next year.”

The series offers the audience an intimate look at the contestants’ journey to the competition and doubles as a promotional vehicle for the Queen of Carnival show.
