Faye scores big

Miss T&T, Faye Alibocus, last night failed in her bid to bring home the Miss Universe crown. However, she managed to finish in the top 10 at the prestigious pageant in Panama City, Panama. Alibocus eventually bowed out after the swim suit competition, the penultimate segment of the final phase of the pageant. And while she did not bring home the crown, a feat which would have put her alongside compatriots Janelle Penny Commissiong (1977) and Wendy Fitzwilliam (1998), Alibocus certainly made T&T proud with her effort. Miss Dominican Republic, Amelia Vega, won the title.
