New Canada Queens For 2016




      Three lucky women were crowned as Canada's new queens this past Sunday night, August 21st, at the ballroom of the Holiday Inn Airport Toronto in Toronto. Thirty-seven young women from the ages of 17-24 came from all over Canada to compete for three titles. They were judged in three categories: interviews (which took place the day before), swimsuit and evening gown. From thirty-seven, the list was trimmed down to fifteen semifinalists

      And the lucky winners are:


     
Hanna Begovic, 18, is Miss Supranational Canada 2016 and will compete at Miss Supranational 2016 pageant to be held in Poland on December 3rd. Hanna is also the current Miss Teenage Ontario and placed in the top 5 at nationals.



Madison Kvaltin, 18, is Miss Intercontinental Canada 2016 and will compete in Miss Intercontinental 2016 pageant to be held in Colombo, Sri Lanka on October 15th.


Cricket Guest, 18, is the new Top Model Of The World Canada 2016 and will compete in Top Model of the World 2017 competition in Germany next summer.


I had the privilege to be part of a distinguished judging panel that included Edgar Sulit, the president of IPEN, a Toronto-based company that produces pageants, fashion shows and musical entertainment; Angeline McDonald, owner of Bells & Bows Bridal Centre in Lethbridge, Alberta; Marc-Philippe Tuscher, a modeling scout for Revolution Modeling Management based in New York City; and Maureen Fenn, regional scout manager for Top Model Search Canada.

Top Model Search Canada is organized and produced by Michelle Weswaldi, who also produces the Miss Teenage Canada contest. I wish to thank Michelle for inviting me to the event and to congratulate her for putting up an outstanding show!

End Of The Year Review - Pageantry In 2021

  And the winner is... Miss Quasi-Normal. Runners-up include Miss Apartheid Universe and Miss Covid World.         2021 pageantry was characterized by a gradual return to normalcy as pageant competitions – which had been cancelled or postponed in 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic – succeeded in staging physical productions while paying close attention to universal safety guidelines. Even major events like the Tokyo Summer Olympics, which was cancelled in 2020, successfully took place in 2021. Miss Universe and Miss Grand International held two editions (one each for 2020 and 2021), The Miss World finals was postponed for March 2022 after several contestants had tested positive for COVID-19 in Puerto Rico which hosts the pageant. The year was also a milestone for Miss Universe and Miss World’s 70th anniversary and Miss America’s 100th anniversary.

Natly also displays screenshots of direct messages sent to her by former Miss USA contestants (the names hav
