Miss Bahamas Earth 2009

Breaking news now coming to Bahamas Press now confirm that more controversy is spewing out of the Miss Bahamas beauty pageant committee. We’ve just learned that Ife Bethel- Sears (picture), Miss Earth Bahamas and first runner up of the pageant, has relinquished her crown. Bethel-Sears released a press statement to members of the public confirming her decision.

Kiara Sherman was crowned Miss Bahamas Universe 2009 under the theme “A Taste of the Bahamas Through Elegance” at the Nassau Wyndham Resorts, Rain Forest Theatre on Sunday, May 25th.

The pageant has suffered suspicion in its judging system, where some judges argued against the winner of the event. Bethel-Sears is the daughter of the former Minister of Education and Attorney General of the Bahamas Alfred Sears.

Statement from Paula M. Shugart, President of the Miss Universe Organization regarding Miss Bahamas Universe Judging System:

“After independently reviewing the ballots and methodology from the 2009 Miss Bahamas Universe Competition we have been able to verify the results of this year’s competition. Keira Sherman is the winner and will represent the Bahamas at the 2009 Miss Universe Competition at Atlantis, Paradise Island.”

Following the announcement and confirmation from the Miss Universe Organization in New York of Kiara Sherman as the official winner of the title, and the resignation of first runner up and Miss Earth bahamas, Ife Bethel-Sears, here is the list of the 2009 Miss Bahamas Universe Queen and Court.
