Miss Southampton Khianda Pearman-Watson

June 20, 2014

In the third of a series of profiles of contestants, Bernews today spotlights Khianda Pearman-Watson, who is representing Southampton in the Miss Bermuda Pageant, which will be held on July 6, 2014.

Miss Pearman-Watson currently attends Leeds Metropolitan University in the United Kingdom, where she studies International Business. During the summer, she will be working in the Department of Community and Cultural Affairs.


When asked why she decided to enter the Miss Bermuda pageant, Miss Pearman-Watson said, “I signed up for the Miss Bermuda Pageant because various people in and out of the community approached me with encouraging comments about entering. This gave me the confidence to give it a try and I concluded this would help me to not only gain more confidence, but also experience.”

When asked what had been the most enjoyable part of the process so far, Miss Pearman-Watson said, “There have been plenty of rewards so far. For instance, making new friends, becoming more comfortable with public speaking and, overall, gaining self-confidence.”

When asked if she were nervous or excited to get on stage for the pageant, Miss Pearman-Watson said, “I am a little nervous to be on stage, but I think the excitement outweighs my nervousness right now. I know that this experience will be like no other.”

When asked who has helped her the most to achieve this success along the way, Miss Pearman-Watson said, “Without my mom, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. She has always encouraged me to follow my dreams and to be the best that I can be. She has always told me to put 100 percent into everything that I do. And with that advice I continue to thrive through life.”

When asked, should she win, what she planned to do with the exposure that being Miss Bermuda would give her, Miss Pearman-Watson said, “If I were to win the Miss Bermuda Pageant, it would allow me to not only show my talents but also show the world all the great possessions Bermuda holds and has to offer at the 2014 Miss World Pageant.”

When asked, win or lose, what’s next for her after the pageant, Miss Pearman-Watson said, “After the pageant, I will be returning to university in September to continue with my International Business Degree.”

The 2014 Miss Bermuda Pageant is scheduled to take place on July 6 at the Fairmont Southampton, where reigning queen Katherine Arnfield will crown her successor. Tickets for the event are available at Pulp & Circumstance at Washington Mall, Fabulous Fashions at Heron Bay Plaza, and online at bdatix.bm.

        Vice Commodore of BBIRYC Double Seven Single niner, you sound very immature like someone who is lacking love in all forms. You should call yourself (two thousand two hundred and twenty-two) sounds much better.

        • Vice Commodore of BBIRYC Double Seven Single Niner says:

          You should call yourself niner double zeros

      • Steve Biko says:

        Sounds like one of those guys who used to run de Plantation back in de day, ignored their wives to abuse de beautiful BlackWomen!!!!!!!!!

        • LOL (Original TM*) says:

          Your an a$$. Why do you even comment for wehat purpose to make you feel better about your skinn?


  2. Street Smart says:

    Again, Wow!!! If anyone out there happens to be or ends up being a contestant judge, GOOD LUCK TO YOU!! ALL these ladies should be Miss Bermuda!!

  3. Exposure says:

    Win or lose, you go back to england and they will come knocking.
    Bernews, is this series of profiles a Bernews initiative or Tourism Authority? Reason being, this should be linked to a wider audience and market the show internationally.Just one agency deciding to send a representaitve can potentially improve the exposure of all these ladies.

    • Bernews says:

      @Exposure – This is not a Tourism Authority initiative in any manner. We started doing Miss Bermuda contestant profiles back in 2011, and do it every year.

    • Former Miss Bda Contestant says:

      @Exposure – You’re right this should be marketed and supported internationally and on a grander scale by larger local and government entities and hopefully going forward the Bda government will understand the enormous opportunity this pageant provides so that once again Bermuda can shine overseas at Miss World via this avenue. Many fail to realize that without financial support Miss Bermuda will not develop beyond a local show – scholarships need to be added and financial backing in order to provide a full program to the ladies as contestants and to accommodate whatever is required for Miss Bermuda to compete in Miss World (which is quite a bit!)

    Hello! You should have come to my birthday pool party recently. Would have been a great location for a photo shoot and would have made it less of a sausage fest!

  5. mixitup says:

    Cute. I love that you don’t look like that image society paints as what’s suppose to be pretty. I love me my dark ladies.

    • Toodle-oo says:

      At the root of it , that’s not a very kind remark because you’re implying that she’s not ‘pretty’ and could be entering the competition to make a statement of some sort.

    hope you win Miss Souhtampton!
