When the remaining 12 delegates in this year’s Miss Malaika Ghana pageant received their briefs for their Miss Photogenic task last week, the instructions were simple; firstthey were to take a beautiful picture that can qualify for a front page pick for a magazine.
Second, they were to take a picture to depict a beautiful African princess while a third picture was to sell the beautiful KIA Cerato that the queen, once crowned will drive away in.
Simple enough tasks but as was seen on TV last Sunday it was a session that had many of the delegates in the competition breaking out in cold sweat.
They strutted, posed and smiled to the camera in the hope that the many frames taken per brief will yield at least one picture that will earn them the title of Miss Photogenic.
What made it difficult for the delegates was the fact that the task did not require the winning picture to be that of the most beautiful lady or even the most intelligent. It only required a beautiful picture.
The result of that task was not disappointing at all. When it was all said and done, emerged winner of the task immediately winning for herself immunity from the dreaded weekly eviction and possibly getting her picture published by a leading newsmagazine.
Good thing she won the task because she was one of three delegates who were at the bottom three when the voting chart came in.
She was up with Felicia and Roselyn and while Roselyn was saved by the godmother, Felicia found herself out of the competition barely two weeks to the much anticipated international tourism trip to Egypt.
It has been an exciting couple of weeks for the delegates who are currently busily preparing to go on their once in a lifetime trip to the Land of the Pharoahs.
Before the trip can come off however, one more lady would have to say a painful goodbye to the competition.
The delegate who will be evicted next Tuesday will largely depend on public votes and of course the saving power of godmothers Kay and Anne.
