Pierre family claims J’Ouvert crowns again

Ronel Pierre was crowned the 2019 King of J’Ou­vert, while his cousin — the sea­soned Lynelle Pierre copped the 2019 Queen of J’Ou­vert ti­tle af­ter los­ing to her moth­er last year.

They were coached by their grand­fa­ther Her­bert “Nat­ty” Pierre, who helped as­sem­ble their props and cos­tumes for the tra­di­tion­al old mas com­pe­ti­tion which took place at South Quay, Port-of-Spain.

The two cred­it­ed their suc­cess to the pa­tri­arch who is the brain­child be­hind their pre­sen­ta­tions.

In his pre­sen­ta­tion ti­tled “Young Moth­er Has Liq­uid Milk, Old Moth­er Has Pow­der Milk,” Ronel had the au­di­ence laugh­ing as he squeezed the nip­ples of ba­by bot­tles which were sewn in­to the lin­ing of his cos­tume, caus­ing liq­uid milk to squirt from one and pow­dered milk to spew from the oth­er.

His cos­tume al­so de­pict­ed a young moth­er clad in a mod­ern out­fit, while the “old­er” side was clad in a long, drab night­ie iden­ti­fy­ing the se­nior­i­ty of the char­ac­ter.

Lynelle Pierre’s pre­sen­ta­tion ti­tled “Gary Say One Shot, One Kill” was short and di­rect to the point.

Avoid­ing much of the frills, Lynelle sat on a stool and whipped out a de­odor­ant tin from an in­side jack­et pock­et which she be­gan spray­ing around her in a bid to ward off the “roach­es,” a ref­er­ence to the Com­mis­sion­er’s de­scrip­tion of crim­i­nals.

Meant to rep­re­sent an in­sec­ti­cide re­pel­lent, Lynelle held aloft a nap­kin in which she dis­played to the judges that she had man­aged to kill a cock­roach af­ter each spray­ing

Speak­ing with re­porters im­me­di­ate­ly af­ter the re­sults of the com­pe­ti­tion were an­nounced, the el­der Pierre con­firmed Mon­day’s vic­to­ry had tak­en the fam­i­ly’s ti­tles to 12 Queens and eight Kings

Lynelle was crowned Queen three times be­fore, while Ronel placed fourth in 2018 and third in 2017

Nat­ty said the fam­i­ly would con­tin­ue to par­tic­i­pate in the com­pe­ti­tion as they be­lieved in pro­vid­ing clean, hu­mor­ous and en­ter­tain­ing pre­sen­ta­tions

The ma­jor­i­ty of the pre­sen­ta­tions poked fun at Po­lice Com­mis­sion­er Gary Grif­fith and the TTPS over a va­ri­ety of mat­ters
