With just over a month to go, the 2012 Miss Bermuda contestants continue to prepare for the pageant, and the chance to represent Bermuda at the 2012 Miss World Pageant in China.
Under the direction of Milika Trott Seymour, the Miss Bermuda Pageant was brought back last year after a hiatus of over a decade. Last year’s winner represented Bermuda at the 2011 Miss World Pageant in London, and the winner of 2012 Miss Bermuda Pageant will travel to Ordos, Inner Mongolia, China to compete in Miss World.
There are eight competitors vying for the chance to be crowned Miss Bermuda 2012; Deshona Perinchief, Lene Hypolite, Chelsy Furtado, Dwanae Simons, Dashunte Furbert, Shannon Ingram, Rochelle Minors and Crystal Lyn.
We caught up with the contestants last night at the swimsuit photo shoot, and the videos below show seven of the eight contestants briefly introducing themselves, with the remaining contestant [Miss Sandys Rochelle Minors] still abroad in school.
