THE audience at the Miss South Pacific Pageant in American Samoa loved Miss Fiji Drue Slatter for her enormous talent simplicity.

Speaking from American Samoa yesterday, Ms Slatter's chaperone Aqela Cakobau said during Miss Fiji's last seven days at the pageant, she took part in a lot of charitable events.

"Miss Slatter together with other contestants from around the Pacific visited the children's hospital and other charitable organisations," Ms Cakobau said.

She said apart from the pageant, Miss Fiji had been able to establish a lifelong friendship with contestants from other countries in the Pacific. Ms Cakobau said as of midday yesterday, Miss Fiji was placed second in the Miss Internet voting category.

Miss Slatter advocated on the ocean as our treasure at the regional event.

The crowning of the Miss South Pacific Pageant was being held last night when this edition went to press.

Miss Slatter was accompanied by Ms Cakobau, 2011 Miss South Pacific Alisi Rabukawaqa and designer Epeli Tuibeqa.

The crowning was still in progress when this edition went to press last night.
