Yendi Phillips won the Miss Jamaica World 2007 title and was placed in the top 15 at the Miss World finals. Earlier this year she was given the chance to become the next Digicel Rising Stars host taking over from long-time host Denise Hunt. Other persons who were vying for the spot are TV personalities Renée Garel (Lady Renée ), Miss Jamaica 2006 winner, Sara Lawrence, and contestant Sanique Vacianna.

I am going to give you my honest opinion Yendi Phillips is god damn boring as hell, she needs to be her self and stop trying to be what she can’t and that is Denise Hunt. I don’t know why Denise is no longer the host but they need to get her back on board.

I love Yendi Phillips but I don’t think she’s doing a good job as the Rising Stars host, I am not a professional in tv land but I can definitely identify that she’s a weak host. Maybe they decided to used her because of her beauty but to be the Rising Stars host you have to be ghetto when it’s time to be ghetto especially when they are doing to search for talents on the road.

I am not going to put all the blame on poor little Yendi because both she and the competition boring. The competition lacks talent from both the contestants and Yendi Phillips. The best Rising Stars season was when Christopher Martin won and I don’t think it’s going to get no better than that for now.

This is so funny because I knew a lot of persons who used to player hate on Denise about her dressing and now that she’s gone them same one saying that she was a better host. But, hey this is Yendi’s first time hosting a major show so let us give her until next season by then she might improve.

Denise Hunt was a bit boring too when the competition started in its first year but by time the search was done she was way head of her mistakes. You could definitely see a difference. The only problem Denise had after that was dressing - sometimes you have to wonder who is dressing her. Yendi definitely needs more training. I think she would be perfect for a kiddies show.
