Updated: 8/2/09

The beauty in Jamaica is not confined to our beaches, vegetation, climate, scenery and physical surroundings - it also is our people too!

Jamaica-Miss Jamaica Pageant 2007

And I don't mean the inner beauty of the people alone. The physical beauty of our women are admired in far away places!

I indicated to you the special beauties we are blessed with on my interesting facts on Jamaica page already.

I proudly stated that Jamaica stands strong in 3rd place from the countries to win the Miss World title the most!.

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

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?]

"In between these victories too there have been two 3rd place winners; two 4th places, one 5th place and two 6th places and 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 in 1963" (

Brittany Lyons is the current queen. The previous year (2007), Yendi Phillips, won the title.

Below is a list of our former Miss Jamaica World Winners since 1976.
