Miss Guyana (also called Miss Guyana World and Miss World Guyana) is a beauty pageant in Guyana the winners of which go on to compete in the Miss World competition. Nesbit Chhangur sang at the 1966 Miss Guyana pageant. Shakira Baksh, the 1967 Miss Guyana, went on to become a runner-up at the Miss World 1967 pageant. Baksh married British actor Michael Caine six years later, becoming his second wife. Imarah Radix was named Miss Guyana in 2009 and went on to compete at the Miss World 2009 pageant in South Africa. In the United Kingdom in 2009, a gynaecologist was accused of giving an orgasm to a patient who allegedly claimed to be a former Miss Guyana winner, but the patient denied having made this claim. Aletha Shepherd, who was Miss Guyana 2010, went on to compete in the Miss Asia Pacific World pageant the following year, from which she withdrew after allegedly being sexually harassed by the pageant's sponsors and racially discriminated against by the judges. In 2012, Arti Cameron, a pre-medical student, was crowned Miss Guyana. That July, Cameron appeared at the JRG Bikini Under the Bridge Fashion Show in New York City, New York, United States. It is traditional for beauty queens to be tall in order to better showcase their legs, but Cameron was one of several contestants at Miss World 2012 who were petite. In 2013, Natasha Martindale took over the leadership of the Miss Guyana pageant, replacing Ken Chung who had previously filled that role.
