On Saturday, November 04, 2017, the William Jefferson Clinton Ballroom of Sandals Grande was full to capacity, with an eager audience waiting to see if this year’s show could live up to the quality standard of last year; the Sports and Social club definitely did not disappoint. Although off to a late start, the stage immediately came alive with the entrance of the hosts, radio personality Pringles, and the fire goddess on property, the Entertainment Supervisor Jevalatte.
The contestants’ introduction did not disappoint and from there on, it was smooth sailing. The show moved from segment to segment with ease with the Dennery segment artistes entertaining at intermission. The décor done by Ms. Dahlia Francois of Options Inc. brought the room to life and was a fitting backdrop for the contestants’ performance.
In the end Giovanni Ermay and Niecer Suffren both of the entertainment department were crowned Misyeet Manmzel Kweyol 2017 respectively. Gasius St. Ange of Food & Beverage and YanciaIssac of Front office came in first runner up;Chris Fannis of Over The Water Bungalows and Edwina Mathurin of Accounts came in second runner up in what was considered to be a very tight race.
The audience left Sandals Grande indicating that they felt thoroughly entertained and were impressed that the show maintained the high standardset from the previous year. It is therefore safe to say, that this Sandals Grande pageant Misyeet Manmzel Kweyol will soon be a staple on St.Lucia’s Creole calendar of events.
