Video: Miss Bermuda Returns From China

August 22, 2012

Miss Bermuda Rochelle Minors returned from London last night [Aug 21], after spending a month in China taking part in the Miss World competition.

She was greeted by her family and friends, and presented with a bouquet of flowers by Miss Bermuda Pageant Director Milika Trott Seymour. At the airport last night she said, “I had an awesome time and I’m happy to be home and I’m glad that I had this experience”.

The 22-year-old student and fashion model was selected over seven other hopefuls last month to win the Miss Bermuda title, and left for Ordos, Mongolia, China on July 18th and participated in a whirlwind of activities over the past month.

Miss Minors placed out of the top 30 at the Miss World finals, however did make the semi-finals for both the model and talent portion, and the finals of the multi-media award. The Pageant has still not released the final results, so it remains unclear where Miss Minors placed overall.
