After the presentations and opening statements of the semi-finalists two days ago, Miss Universe Jamaica organization announced the Top 10 finalists who will move on to the final leg of the competition to represent Jamaica at the upcoming edition of Miss Universe.

The Top 10 finalists competing for Miss Universe Jamaica 2021 are Kim-Marie Spence, Lauren Less, Kaydean Sterling, Jianna Thompson, Chavelle Kavanaugh, Keronica Lewis, Aaliyah Barnett, Daena Soares, Trudy-Ann Peart and Trishani Weller. Meanwhile, two of the semi-finalists, Lincia Haughton and Thalia Malcolm, have been given automatic spots in the top 10 for 2022 if they choose to re-enter.



The finalists will have a session with American actress and runway coach Lu Celania Sierra on 6th October 2021. The official sashing ceremony for the Top 10 finalists will be held on 2nd October 2021.

Mark McDermoth, the director of Miss Universe Jamaica, said, “After the presentations and the various rounds, inclusive of the opening statements, presentations and swimsuit challenge, what we saw, we actually wanted to choose a top 12. When we were finished with judging, that’s what we arrived at, but we knew we couldn’t do that. It really gave us grief.”

“The pandemic has basically forced us to run into the top 10 from the outset. The safety and economics of it all was a major deciding factor; it is more practical and economical to do the competition the way we are now, considering transportation for the group and accommodation and, of course, the overall logistics of hosting the event”, he added.
