Miss Bahamas is a national Beauty pageant in The Bahamas.

History[edit]

The Miss Bahamas Committee staged the Miss Bahamas pageant for 40 years. In 2002, the franchise for the Miss Universe pageant was awarded to Theophilus Fritz and Gaynell Rolle who ran the pageant until 2009. In 2010, the Miss Bahamas Organization (MBO) headed by journalist Michelle Malcolm was awarded the franchise for Miss Universe. At the time, MBO - which was formed in 2006 - was already producing the Miss World Bahamas pageant since the year 2007.

After receiving the Miss Universe franchise, MBO combined the Miss World and Miss Universe systems into one local pageant, crowning one winner who would compete in both international pageants. This was the first time in the history of pageants in The Bahamas that the license for both Miss Universe and Miss World were held by the same organization. Braneka Bassett competed in Miss Universe in 2010 and went unplaced. She then competed in Miss World that same year and advanced to the semi finals. The following year, MBO crowned two winners - Anastagia Pierre for Miss Universe and Sasha Joyce for Miss World. Runners up were sent to Miss Supranational and Miss Intercontinental. In 2012 due to a change in date of the Miss World pageant, Daronique Young - 1st runner up to Sasha Joyce in 2011 - represented The Bahamas at the Miss World competition where she went unplaced.

In 2013 after undergoing a major restructuring process, MBO separated the two national pageants into separate events - Miss Universe Bahamas and Miss World Bahamas.

In 2016 the Miss Universe Bahamas Organization holds national pageant, independently.
