    • Notorious says:

      You are a very annoying and ignorant person. Stay off of bernews facebook and bernews.com with your stupidity.

    • Bold Enough says:

      Yes I agree with Notorious…everyone else has posted comments of support and well wishes and of course here comes the hate.

      Jana is a beautiful young woman, inside and out, and she will wear the crown the well! All the young ladies represented themselves, their families, and the community wonderfully. It was an amazing show and a worthy competition.

      Well done to all the contestants, you are all winners!

    • (sigh) says:

      @ Blind young Person

      ALL the ladies represented themselves very well but it was one person who shone more than the rest, the majority of people who was sitting in the audience on Sunday knows that Jana deserved to win the title. Please keep your negative comments to yourself, they have no place here.

      • Mo says:

        The majority of the audience was her family so they obviously would think that. It’s also easy to shine when the audience is your family. I guess the 2 rounds of preliminary judging counted for nothing in the end…

        • .am says:

          And yet there were still some empty seats — so where was the support for the other girls?

        • (sigh) says:

          Oh please, you mean to tell me that the 800+ people that were there were all rooting for Jana? You do the other contestents a huge diservice by implying that they had no support from their own family and friends. At the end of the day it’s the judges that decide not the screaming people in the audience so if 3 sets of judges say that Jana is Miss BDA 2011 then who are you to say any different?

          • Timed Out says:

            Are you sure that it was the 3 sets of judges that made the decision? It took 5 minutes for 15 contestants to be cut down to 8, then another 5 to be cut down from 8 to 5. Why did it then take about 45 minutes for a final result to be announced? Does anyone know if there was there an independent auditor, such as PWC, who added the total scores in the open, as normally required in such competetions, or were the scores taken away to a room behind closed doors? Not suggesting anything, but just asking.

            • .am says:

              I’d be more curious to find out when ‘everything’ was taken into account. If the results that far decided the top 8, I’d say the final results were how/what I’d have expected.

              Some people royally cocked up their questions.

              • Timed Out says:

                You may be right with the questions, some may have, but then some had help from the MC. Regardless, if you have cumulative marks for the final 5 prior to the last round, all it takes is to add the marks from the last rpound to the previous marks. Two previous rounds took 5 minutes. From your first comments it seems you’re suggesting that some other method was used for the final result?

                • .am says:

                  Maybe the cumulative marks decided the Top 8 and were then disregarded?

                  Aside: there was, apparently, an independent auditor.

  19. SMH says:

    don’t even waste time addressing that negative poster…thats what they want you to do.

  20. wow says:

    congrats!!!! well done!!!

  21. United says:

    It is amazing to me to see the discourse on these threads sometimes. I do agree that not everyone is going to accept the result but to have a dissenting opinion is OK but let’s not be disrespectful of one another’s opinion. The lady is beautiful, she won fair and square.

    Congratulations Ms. Outerbridge and best of luck in your endeavours.

  22. well looka this says:
