This past weekend over 40 girls participated in the Miss Universe Canada 2011 GTA Preliminary Competition. 12 finalists were selected to move on and compete for the title of Miss Universe Canada 2011! Below are the 12 girls with some persona information and a bikini gallery of the ladies who made it. Let’s take a quick peek and evaluation of the girls…
AGE: 25 | HEIGHT: 5’9″ | HOMETOWN: RICHMOND HILL
Anastasia is a ballroom dancer, which means she can clearly rock the stage. This girl has grace and EXCELLENT posture. This girl will definitely be a catwalk to watch out for.
AGE: 22 | HEIGHT: 5’7″ | HOMETOWN: TORONTO
Called it from Day 1! Yeah… that’s right. Those eyes scream beauty queen. And it is no surprise that Celina is Miss Chin Bikini Canada 2010 (needless to say, she has a great body). On a more important level, this girl is well known to her peers as being very nice, genuine, positive, and overall real. A real beauty queen? Well I never…
AGE: 19 | HEIGHT: 5’9″ | HOMETOWN: TORONTO
It’s the return of the teen queens, a former Miss Teen Canada World is again in the finals! If she’s anything like Katie Starke we know she will be a presence to watch out for. But on a deeper level, Chelsea is said to be a very nice and genuine person.
AGE: 20 | HEIGHT: 5’10″ | HOMETOWN: TORONTO
I had a feeling this Caribbean beauty would make it. She’s young, spunky, funny, but also has a little shyness in her. Miss Universe qualities, no?
AGE: 26 | HEIGHT: 5’11″ | HOMETOWN: NORTH YORK
I think this is the first year in a while that we have had quite a few black contestant make it through the GTA contest, and I couldn’t be happier. Always good to see one of the largest communities in Toronto being represented. Jamie, of Caribbean decent, has had some pageant experience. So she is no stranger to the stage. Overall a nice girl who has a lot of promise.
Michelle De Sousa
AGE: 26 | HEIGHT: 5’7″ | HOMETOWN: MISSISSAUGA
This girl is a striking image of Mariana Valente, Miss Universe Canada 2009. Glamour does not even begin to describe her. Honestly, I think the pictures speak for themselves. This girl definitely deserved a Top 12 finish!
AGE: 24 | HEIGHT: 5’11″ | HOMETOWN: THORNHILL
I’ll try not to make a figure skating joke here. But this girl looks outstanding with hair and make-up. And this girl must know a thing or two about competition because she certainly knows how to bring it. Could this be her year for a gold medal, er- I mean crown. Haha… I tried.
AGE: 24 | HEIGHT: 5’9″ | HOMETOWN: MISSISSAUGA
Interesting fact about this girl- she’ll be competing in a pageant this coming year in Turkey (Miss Globe International) representing her home nation of Guadeloupe. So clearly this girl knows a thing or two about shining on stage. Described by her peers as sweet, she’s certainly gave LDU a toothache…. ha… ha.. ha….
AGE: 25 | HEIGHT: 5’6″ | HOMETOWN: SCARBOROUGH
Even though Sadhna is my girl, I want to remain completely unbiased. SHE IS THE BEST PERSON EVER. No but really- I could write you a novel on why this girl is amazing. She’s an angel: so sweet, so nice, so compassionate, so elegant, so friendly, so everything! You know how when you’re moving suddenly everyone is busy, out of town, or sick? Sadhna is that friend who actually shows up…smiling. Alright, aside from her personality- this girl has a killer walk. She means business on that stage. She has been working hard to improve her game, and it paid off!
AGE: 20 | HEIGHT: 5’7″ | HOMETOWN: RICHMOND HILL
Alright so first things first, this right here is our Miss Congeniality!!! A very important title because you don’t win friends with salad. And this girl had a lot of support in the crowd. Literally so many people came to see her. So she must have a great support system and genuine friends. I’m sure every one of them was proud of her and I see success in her pageant future!
AGE: 25 | HEIGHT: 5’10″ | HOMETOWN: MISSISSAUGA
All I want to know is where this girl gets her amazing eyebrows done. Sonia truly does shine on stage. And there was no denying that the judges saw that this past weekend. She’s also known for her great personality. LDU is excited to see what the future holds for this girl!
AGE: 23 | HEIGHT: 5’9″ | HOMETOWN: THORNHILL
And finally, rounding out the top 12, we have Victoria. She has an amazing body and a beautiful head shot. She is said to be very sweet and quite funny. Nothing we love more then a girl with a sense of humor! Also, I heard through the grapevine that Victoria is well-connected in Toronto. And if there is one thing the Donald likes, it’s a girl who knows how to network and schmooze!
