The Haiti International Pageant 2018 took place Saturday, March 24, in Hollywood Florida. Twenty-four Haitian women from around the world competed for the crown in four categories, but only one in each could take it home.
The night had its fair share of jokes from host Athlet “Flav” St.Fleur who kept the crowd entertained throughout the night. Some of the other highlights of the night included African dancer Sherrie Silver who surprised the guest with a choreographed Afrobeats routine and invited the guest on stage to dance. Other performances included comedian Sifrael, singer Morgan Kelly, Saxophonist Ketler Sax and the Tempo Dance Miami.
Contestants were separated into four categories: Mrs. Haiti, Miss Haiti, Miss Teen Haiti and Ms. Ambassador.
Three women from each of those categories made up the Top 12. The top ladies participated in interview, fitness, fun fashion, evening gown and from there, the judges voted and narrowed the group down to 12.
