Kingston, Jamaica: On Wednesday, May 18, 2011, Invyte Productions held the official Launch of the Miss Jamaica Universe Pageant. Held at the Wyndham Kingston Hotel the evening showcased the ladies in their entire splendor to a small but very receptive audience. Hosted by D’Andra Collinder of CVM TV, the evening began with a sizzling dance number featuring the contestants to the wildly popular “Paparazzi” by Lady GaGa. The audience cheered as their favourite girl graced the stage.
After the opening number, Pageant Director Dhorie Cox made the opening speech in which she spoke on the this year’s staging of the pageant and all the activities that will take place over the next two months which included four (4) promotional tours (Negril, Ocho Rios, Montego Bay & Kingston). She also announced the coveted Miss Jamaica Universe 2011 Prize Package. Setting aside the crown, the fame, the glory and the chance of a lifetime, the winner of the 2011 Pageant will receive $1,000,000 cash and a chauffeur driven Mercedes Benz S-Class for a whole year, courtesy of major sponsor Silver Star Motors. The announcements also included sectional prizes such as Best Body with a trophy provided by major sponsor Fit Farm Fitness Club, Best Smile with a trophy provided by Southdale Dental, Best Skin with a trophy provided by major sponsors L’Oreal and Most Aware with an award provided by Invyte Productions.
Other Prizes include; Gym Membership for the winner, first and second runner up from Fit Farm Fitness Club for up to 2 years, Jewellry by Reve Jewellry, Gift Certificate courtesy of Salon Innovations, Accessories by Fashion Frenzy and Photo Shoots with award winning photographer Bryan Rosen.
The audiences kept moving to the sounds of ZJ Johnny Kool from Zip 103FM and up and coming R&B/Reggae crooner Chris DeMontague who wooed the audience with his musical renditions of Sam Cooke favourites. His original song “Missing You” was used to serenade the lovely ladies of Miss Jamaica Universe 2011 at the end of the evening.
