Miss Guatemala is the new Costa Maya Queen, 1st runner up Miss Costa Rica, 2nd runner up Miss Honduras.

They really went all out this year with 2 huge screens and 2 camera locations. Saw the Mexican TV stations there with their crews and plenty of CA media as well.

All in all a good start to the festival.

At last night's show there was a 15 year old singer, Fabiola Rodas, who had the most incredible voice. She keeps it up and she'll go places, maybe even headline next year as her set was way too short this year.

Here's a link to a couple of videos from when she was 13.

Performing on both Friday and Saturday night is singing sensation Fabiola Rodas. Born Jackeline Fabiola Rodas Valladares on September 6th, 1996, she showed from an early age her desire to perform, through her singing, dancing and general fun outlook to life. She also enjoys learning new languages, and speaks English, Spanish, and is currently learning German and Italian.

She has been the opening act for such big names as Vicente Fernandez, Eros Ramazotti, Pimpinela, Belinda, Pandora and Angelica Valle. She has represented Guatemala at “The World Championships of The Arts”, winning seven gold medals and five honorable mentions in seven different musical performance categories including R&B, Pop, Rock, Latin, Dance and Vocal, and Broadway.

She is currently writing and composing her own songs and is in the process of recording and producing an album through Home Studio Recording. The end product will be finalized and organized at a professional recording studio and rearranged and mixed by producers from as far as Chile, Argentina, Mexico and the United States of America.

This vibrant and multi-talented rising star is excited to be performing at Belize's very own Costa Maya Festival, and we're sure she will be a hit.

She put on another great show last night, much better than the headliner in my book.

She opened with Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now" which she nailed and then went on to do songs by Mariah Carey, Celine Dion and others. Defenitely someone to watch.

Scandal Eclipsed Miss Guatemala Coronation


Jennifer Chiong (also Miss Costa Maya 2008) Stripped off her Miss Guatemala Title

Lourdes Figueroa, a 20-year old model and student from Guatemala City; and Angelica Guevara from San Marcos, were crowned Miss Guatemala Universe and Miss Guatemala World respectively during an event held at the Gran Tikal Futura Expocenter on May 25th.

But the event was affected by a major scandal: Jennifer Chiong (Miss Guatemala 2008) who had been dethroned last December - for her inability to perform her duties - showed up at the event, uninvited, wearing her sash and crown, and bringing an audio track with her "farewell speech".

Chiong interrupted the event when she took the stage by storm during the performance of musical guest Carlos Peña (winner of Latin American Idol 2007). The audience and guests could not understand what was happening, and pageant directors removed her from the stage.

Afterwards, a brawl took place inside the venue, where journalists filmed and photographed the whole ordeal. Chiong took the stage again and grabbed the microphone to try to discredit the pageant organization. The contestants had to leave the stage and the scandal lasted for about an hour, until Chiong was removed from the premises. Figueroa was crowned by Miss Guatemala 2007, Alida Boer.

Jennifer was stripped from her crown and title as Miss Guatemala after she abruptly left the Reina Hispanoamericana International Pageant in October 2008 without giving any notice. Jennifer said that she did not feel happy with the treatment she received at the event and thus she took the next flight back home.

Ambergris Today contacted the Costa Maya Festival committee to find out if these actions would affect Jennifer’s participation at this year’s festival. Festival Chairman Gach Guerrero confirmed that he had been aware of the situation, but assured that whatever problems Jennifer has had with the Miss Guatemala organization does not affect her standings as Miss Costa Maya 2008. Jennifer is still scheduled to return to San Pedro in August and assume her responsibility of crowning the next Miss Costa Maya 2009.
