Dominicans experienced a pageant with a difference on Febrauary 10th 2012. The Mr. Dominica show is being described by many as one of the best shows ever staged in Dominica. Nigel Peters who hails out of the community of Portsmouth wowed the crowd and the judges and was crowned the first ever Mr. Dominica. Peter who was consistent in all rounds of the competition cupped the awards for Best Interview and Best in Magnificent Wear.
Shannah Robin of Marigot secured 1st runner up position and received awards for Best Talent and Goodwill Ambassador. Kester Edwards placed second runner up and was awarded Best Formal Wear. Other catergory winners were Lennard Panthier Mr Photogenic and Ghandi Robin, Best Beach Wear.
Other participants in the show were; Augustus Bruno and Bram Sanderson. The show held at the Arawak House of Culture.
Kudos to Antoinette Mora and her team for organizing and executing a show of such high standards. Mention must be made of all the Dominican ladies who came to support these young men as the showcased their talent and made their contribution to Dominica’s culture and Carnival.
