Caribbean Queens: Our beauties vying for Miss World 2018
On December 8, Manushi Chhillar from India will crown her successor when a new Miss World is announced in Sanya, China.
The 68th Miss World final will see 120 women from around the world vying for the crown. Among them will be a group of beauties from the Caribbean.
The Caribbean has only won the Miss World title five times with Jamaica, Dominican Republic and Trinidad and Tobago in winner's row. Jamaica holds the Caribbean record with three Miss World queens (Carole Joan Crawford, 1963; Cindy Breakspeare, 1976; and Lisa Hanna,1993).
Do you think the Caribbean could pull it off again in 2018?
