Video: Miss Jamaica beauty Queen Yendi Phillipps releases Cardio Dance workout DVD


Miss Jamaica Universe 2010 Yendi Phillips has been dabbling in a couple ventures lately, including but not limited to Television host for a popular Jamaican morning program, making various local appearances and commercials and of course turning Mummy a year ago. (See behind-the-scenes from workout DVD below)

Posted on her Social Media pages was the following statement: “Here it is!!! Now available in Walmart in Canada is “IN THE DANCE FITNESS JAMAICA” hosted by yours truly!! Woop woop!!!”….this was followed by a pic of what seems to be the cover of the workout DVD. This is certainly up the former beauty Queen’s alley, as she is already a professionally trained dancer holding a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in Dance.

Kudos to Miss Phillips on this new venture…wish her all the best! I am sure many are anticipating its availability in other parts of the world soon:)

In describing her Talent piece that gifted her a spot in the Talent finals, Deanna said (MissWorld.com), ‘I am performing modern and contemporary dance to Bob Marley’s ‘Redemption Song’. The dance is a reflection of the hardships overcome and the eventual deliverance felt by the Jamaican slaves as a result of their perseverance and subsequent freedom.’

So far Deanna Robins, Miss Jamaica World 2012 is a top finalist in all of the Preliminary Challenge events (See Leaderboard Point Standings below pic): UPDATE: (Aug 12) Deanna has now been selected as a Top 10 finalists in Top Model segment!

NEW!! TIME Magazine votes Jamaica’s 2012 Olympic gear as best team outfit this year

TIME Magazine listed their Worst and Best Opening Ceremony outfits for this years Olympics, and Jamaica has been voted as the BEST.

TIME had this to say of the Marley-designed Jamaican gear: ‘We love these uniforms, mostly because the designers didn’t seem to be trying too hard. The vivid colors and geometric colors are so fun! Just like the Olympics!

This comes short of the recent huge shibang and shock at the fact that the Ralph Lauren United States Olympic gear was made in China.

The festive, island vibed PUMA Jamaican Olympic team wear was designed by Cedella Marley, daughter of the legendary King of Reggae Bob Marley. If you misssed it, check out the designs HERE

So is this a foreshadowing of what is to come? We will see…Congrats to Cedella and her team and PUMA…taking the Jamaica to the worldddd IN Class and Style…

The total results were as follows: BEST/ Jamaica, New Zealand, Italy Germany, United Kingdom, South Korea and WORSE/ USA, Australia, Russia, China, Spain, Hong Kong…Hey, Im just the messenger;)
