Enviable Successes

Our Miss Jamaica winners have had much success at the International Miss World Contest as, in addition to Carol Joan Crawford' and Cindy’s victories in 1962 and 1976 respectively, Lisa Hanna also took home the crown in 1993. [How can I forget that occasion?], and more recently in 2019Toni Ann Singh!

As a result,  I can proudly say that Jamaica stands strong in 3rd place from the countries to win the Miss World title the most!

India and Venezuela are in joint first place (with 6 wins) followed by the UK in second (5 wins) and Jamaica in third (4 wins).

South Africa, the US, Iceland and Sweden are in joint fourth with three wins each.

Doesn't that trigger a thought in your mind though?... be honest now.

Oh yeah! Perhaps the a little about our history might be helpful.


These are are still amazing performances considering the number of entrants from across the world in addition to our resource limitations.

In between these victories too there have been several top 20, top 10 and top 5 finishers, as well as  several winners of the Caribbean Queen of Beauty title.

Prior to Spartan's staging of the contest, Jamaica had produced its first Miss World when Carol Crawford won that title  (
