Yes, it’s me, Jesseca. And you guessed it…a new blog post!
Day 4 was filled with lots of rehearsing. We learnt our dance number for the bikini portion of the show on the 14th. Fitting 38 girls onto one small stage was hard today, but it will look amazing on the actual stage later on. All the dancing also made us hungry; therefore, we had amazing sandwiches from The Local Café and Restaurant. My turkey sandwich was delicious.
After lunch, we did some more rehearsing, then moved onto hair and makeup. We all managed to squeeze in a bit of dinner during this hectic time. It took quite some time to get all of the hair and makeup done for each and every single girl. The makeup artists and hairstylists were the true superheroes. I have to give a huge thanks to Blair Santos for giving me a flawless makeup look.
Next up, the start of the preliminary competition. Miss World Canada 2018, Hanna Begovic, was our MC. It started off with the evening gown segment. Every single girl looked absolutely glamourous in their gown. We were all squealing about the dresses so much that we had to be shushed. After the evening gown segment, we rushed to the dressing room to change into our bikinis, which came from our amazing sponsor, Hot Water Swimwear.
After all that, we had the talent portion. This part was optional; however, I decided to sing Safe and Sound by Taylor Swift. All of the girls who performed did extremely well. The rest of the delegates were lined up at the back and cheering on the performers.
Once the show was finished, we had some time to take pictures and see friends and families if they came to watch. Then we packed up and headed back to the hotel. On the bus ride back, we all sang our hearts out to songs like Party in the USA, Timber, Lost in Japan, Old Town Road, Fergalicious, etc. What’s a bus ride without some music blasting?
Today determined the Top 20, so we’ll have to wait until the 14th to know who the Top 20 are! Anyways, it was a jam-packed day, so I’m gonna go sleep. Night night!
