Saint Lucian beauty, Tyler Theophane, who hails from Caffeire, Choiseul, returned home this evening after placing 1st. runner-up in the Miss Jaycees International Queen Show held in Antigua last night.
This was the 56th annual edition of the show, with fourteen other contestants from Grenada, Dominica, Anguilla, Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados, BVI, USVI, St. Maarten, USA, Nevis, St. Kitts, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Guyana, and Antigua and Barbuda.
Miss Theophane was greeted, and presented a bouquet of flowers on her arrival at George FL Charles Airport soon after she disembarked from a LIAT flight from Antigua, by Leila Williams of Events Company of Saint Lucia, and Shirnaya Stephen (Carnival Queen 2003) from the Carnival Queen Show Comittee.
In an interview soon after her arrival Ms. Theophane expressed her gratitude for all the support from Saint Lucia and around the region and world. She was amazed by the social media messages from supporters from countries she did not think would be watching her progress. She poured abundant praise on her sponsors, Financial Investment & Consultancy Services Ltd. (FICS).
Tyler is also Saint Lucia’s 2016 Carnival Queen – then 18 years old, she won Miss Photogenic, Best Swimwear, and Best in Costume categories.
