Young beauty Rochelle Minors was recently crowned the new Miss Bermuda 2012.
The 22-year-old, who donned a stunning turquoise evening gown, wowed the crowd with her humor and intelligence during the interview portion of the night. The new queen stated her “shocked” over the win.
“I am in complete shock. I just have to say I give God all the glory for this. I am very proud.”
“To be honest I believed I had the potential to win Miss Bermuda but I never thought in my wildest dreams this would happen.”
Miss Sandy’s , Rochelle Minors, beat 7 other contestants to win the title. The first runner-up was Miss Pembroke, Chelsy Futardo, while Miss Devonshire, Lene Hypolite, was the second runner-up. The third runner-up was Miss Smith’s, Dwane Simons, and the fourth-runner-up was Miss Warwick, Deshona Perinchief.
A week after her win, Rochelle Minors is already gearing up for one of the title’s biggest challenges — representing the Island in the Miss World pageant in China next month.
“It has been so fast-paced. I haven’t actually had time to think ‘I am Miss Bermuda’. Some days I am still in shock,” she said.
“People come to me and say ‘Miss Bermuda’ and I am like ‘Who [are you talking to]?’. But it’s starting to become a reality. With the preparation for Miss World and trying on the garments, it’s beginning to sink in.”
