Consider these heights: Sal Garcia of the Dominican Republic and Isabel Dalley of Jamaica at 6’2″, Cherell Williamson of the Bahamas at 6’0, with Charlene Leslie of Aruba and Chanelle de Lau of Curaçao both at 5’11”. What is it with the amazonian vertical/horizontal measurements of these ladies? What genes conspired to make them so tall that – collectively – they are called Giants of the Caribbean?
And mind you, they are not merely tall, they are such gorgeous women in photos and in person. Isabel and Chanelle, for example, are already being handpicked by pageant followers as potential spoilers to the favorites in the 65th Miss Universe. Add to the mix Charlene and we already have a troika of strong performers. If that’s not enough, there is 5’9″ Shannon Harris of Barbados who is being looked at as another strong candidate.But wait, we’re not done with the island beauties yet. I am adding 5’11” Raquel Pellisier of Haiti – the representative who almost did not make it to Manila due to funding concerns. She is another stunning comer. And just to complete the feature, I won’t leave out Brenda Jimenez Azaria of Puerto Rico who – at 5’10” – stands just right based on pageant standards.
Of course, there are a few more to include in the list, like Carolyn Carter of the US Virgin Islands, Rebecca Rath of Belize and Erika Creque of the British Virgin Islands as per geographical location. But the delegates I cited above make this group a really strong team not to be taken for granted.
Who is/are your personal choices from among these statuesque Caribbean eye candies, dear readers?
