Georgina Joseph Hawes, a British citizen of St. Lucian heritage, has finished fourth out of 19 contestants in the first ever Miss Big Beautiful Woman (BBW) International competition, dubbed the ‘Miss Universe of Big Beautiful Women’.
Hawes told St Lucia News Online (SNO): “ From 400 girls to 19 and I walk away with a crown. There was five crowns and I came in fourth. So proud. Thank you for the support. I am now crowned the fourth most beautiful plus size women international 2012.”
The 46-year-old, who was the oldest competitor, told SNO in an earlier interview that her participation is dedicated to her St. Lucian parents who passed away a month apart before they could see her outshine 400 other hopefuls to reach the grand final.
The final was held in London on Nov. 10.
SNO will provide more information on the competition later.
