McKinley scored high marks from all judges in the categories best figure, symmetry, appeal, and proportions. She said she was happy to be selected as the best figure and overall winner.
“I take care of my body for a number of reasons and I do believe that I earned it for my hard work,” she said. Talia Soares, Miss Morfose Hair Care Services, was first runner-up and winner for Best Skin Tone while second runner-up went to Royanne DeSilva, Miss Future Energy Source.
The other two top five placements went to Cavel Campbell, Miss Nargia’s Beauty Experience, and Jovi Jaja, Miss Windy Air Conditioners.
