Miss Heilala contestants could participate twice in the Heilala Festival
Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa ,2/07/2018
Heilala Festival organizer has revealed that the Miss Heilala contestants could participate twice in the Heilala Festival.
Tafolosa Bloomfield says there is no rule that forbid girls from participating twice in the competition.
Bloomfield’s comment was in response to a social media post questioning the eligibility of one of the contestants who is again vying for the Miss Heilala title 2018, but she was amongst the contestants last year.
Heilala Festival organizer says the only time a contestant is not allowed to participate, is when her age is over 25, because the beauty pageant is for those who are 18-25.
Meanwhile, the pre-pageant interview competition was carried today at Loumaile Lodge in which the top five for this category include – Miss Ha’ano – Manu Ma’ake, Miss S & S USA Store – Irene Vakalahi, Miss Bou’s Fashion – Luana Fifita, Miss Langakali ‘o e Vai ko Puna – Primrose Malekamu and Miss Appraxus Tonga NZ – Kalo Funganitao.
The competition will end this Friday with a ball night.
