Christelle Harris, the first runner-up in the 2006 Miss Jamaica World Pageant may take over the 'reigns' of Miss Jamaica World!
Since news broke that the incumbent, Sara Lawrence relinquished her crown due to pregnancy, there have been speculations with regards to the 'idle' crown. However, YardFlex.com was reliably informed yesterday by an officer at Spartan Health Club - organization with responsibility for the pageant that an announcement could be made shortly to reveal Miss Lawrence's replacement.

"That final decision could be made soon and when it's done an official announcement will be made," the anonymous officer stated.

If Christelle Harris is crowned as a replacement, she will be Miss Jamaica World for the remainder of the prestigious tenure, which culminates at the end of August.

Sara Lawrence, a 22-year-old single medical student lost the title seven months after she was selected to represent Jamaica at the Miss World 2006 contest in Poland -- where she placed sixth.

In a statement on March 15, pageant organizers said Lawrence had violated pageant rules with her pregnancy. "Her actions could potentially harm the tradition that is the Miss Jamaica World pageant and its past and future winners," event promoter, Mickey Haughton-James, said.

Haughton-James said it was the first time in the Jamaican contest's 23-year history that a winner was dethroned because she was pregnant.
Lawrence, who said she was expecting her first child in September, said it had been an honour to represent her native land.
"I crave the understanding of my many supporters at home and abroad and hope that people everywhere who have shown me such kindness and love will respect my position," she said.
