• Miss Asia Pacific Int. Jamaica

    Miss Jamaica Asia Pacific International, Daisi Jo Pollard

    Daisi was the first candidate to represent Jamaica at Miss Asia Pacific International in China along with several other Caribbean, South American and African countries.


    The Miss Asia Pacific International pageant is considered the oldest pageant based in Asia. In 2005, in honor of its 36th year, the Miss Asia Pacific International pageant expanded it global reach when it invited more than 55 countries to compete for the first time in mainland China in the Guangdong Province and the city of Guangzhou. The purpose of Miss Asia Pacific International is to promote travel and tourism in the South China region.


    The journey through South China included official duties such as tours of the Gudou Hot Springs Resort, Clifford Golden Lake Hotel, Long Chan Resort and the Oriental Dong Fang Hotel. Daisi made appearances and presentations at numerous regional and national treasures including Birds' Paradise in Xinhui, the Kaiping Garden, the Palm Garden and the TianHe Stadium.

    During the Miss Asia Pacific Int. 2005 pageants final dress rehearsal, Miss Jamaica, Daisi Pollard was escorted off the stage during pageant rehearsal after protesting irregularities. The delegates had been told that the rehearsal would just be a "run through" and would not be taped. However, the rehearsal was taped with judges and other organization heads present during the rehearsal. Many of the delegates were upset and outraged over the situation backstage. Miss Jamaica, also outraged, walked across the stage to the microphone and protested. She was escorted off stage but the judges were eventually removed from the rehearsal.


    There were several other developments at MAPI that left the delegates unhappy. From the decision to cut from 52 to 5 finalists to contradictions over whether evening gown or costumes would be included in the scoring. MAPI had agreed to pay the airline costs and accommodations for the delegates but MAPI failed to purchase tickets for certain delegates due to MAPI not properly informing its national directors of a visa deadline. Many of the delegates wept in frustration over inconsistencies.


    Pageants are heavily unregulated, leaving it wide open for misunderstanding, overworked contestants and crew and sometimes poor treatment. In this case, there was a breakdown in communications on all parts.
