Miss Barbados Stats:
Never since Miss Barbados 1974 the beautiful and bubbly Linda Fields has any Miss Barbados ever since placed in the "top 20" or even" top 10" as did Linda Fields.. Linda Fields was number eight in the Miss World Pageant in 1974. There were predictions and a storm over equally" Gorgeous Barbados beauty Leah Marville that she would be in the TOP 10 and do as good if not better than that of the only Miss Barbados to ever make it in the top 10 after Linda Fields put Barbados on the map. Leah Marville had this same pizazz as the 1974 winner .These two hopefuls had the world abuzz with their electrifying presence . Leah Marville fell short but has had successful modeling jobs.o
