Former Miss USA to help Cayman’s beauties

Chelsea Cooley Altman of North Carolina is the first woman in her state to have won the Miss USA title.

She took the national accolade back in 2005 and then travelled the world as a national spokesperson for Breast and Ovarian Cancer research and awareness.

Ms. Cooley Altman arrived in Grand Cayman on Wednesday to assist in the judging of the ten contestants for the annual Miss Cayman Pageant.

Ms. Altman said, “Working for Donald Trump, understanding his brand and understanding his pageant, makes it very clear as to what he wants in this business.

“He told me a while ago that the best thing about his pageants is that he never took the beauty out of the pageant.

“Within the Miss Universe organisation they are celebrating a woman’s God given beauty.”

Chelsea gave some sage advice to the contestants on training and its effects on pageantry.

“I think firstly you have to surround yourself with the right people that have the knowledge that you know can truly help you and benefit you.

“I judged the Miss Texas pageant and there were 124 girls. The girl who won the competition had only ever been in one pageant before.

“As far as needing to be groomed from birth, I wasn’t and I don’t think those types of things are conditional.”

The Miss Cayman contestants will go through their entire judging process on Saturday, including a one on one interview with the judges.

Support your favorite contestant tonight at the Lion’s Community Centre. The gates open at 5:30pm.
