Subject: I know this is a voyboard but, I need some advise... I want to compete in 2016, somewhere in the southeast. Here's my dilemma- I have entered one pageant, but I feel like when I email the director questions she doesn't want to be bothered, or questioned., not sure how to proceed.. I won my entry into another pageant and the director plays games., I've caught her in lies already, also don't like answering questions and will not talk on the phone.. I'm so discouraged. Should I just give up and not compete?

I am considering competing in a state prelim for Mrs International. If the winner at state, my national fee, hotel, and meals for the week are covered. However, I've heard so many people say that even with all of these expenses covered, they still end up spending into the 20k range to attend the national pageant. That you are forced to use their sponsors for every little thing, or you have no chance at winning. I've been told this by more than one previous competitor. Is any/all of this true? It seems like such a great system...

Please advise me on a good pageant in New England for someone who is new to pageantry, not tall, not exceptionally beautiful but carries herself well and confidently 40 plus years old? I don't want to go "at-large" and want to compete in a pageant where you win respectable title. Thank you!

Subject: FYI: There's some new info you all need to be made aware of.. There's some pages on Facebook that are calling themselves "pageants ratings" or "pageant Rating and reviews".. These are coming under the guise of "help tools" when it's nothing more than a way to cyber bully and bash, pageants, directors and judges. Do not fall prey to this persons motives. This male that's heading these up has less than one year pageant experience ( as a whole), not a judge, not anything that qualifies this person for this. I guess voyboards will go away now because of this level of junk on fb. How it works; someone posts a pageant/director/etc.. For this person to rate and review- and then it all goes bad from there.. nothing bad has happened YET.. It's a powderkeg and it will blow up.

One piece swimsuits are becoming so stylish and beautiful these days. If you were a judge, would you mark a contestant up or down for wearing a sexy, high end one piece versus the standard two piece in swimwear? Or would it matter?
Date Posted:08/ 8/15 12:36:48pm
I have competed at state level pageants before so I was really excited to go to a "national" pageant. I picked US Universal because the director was awesome about getting back with me and answering all of my questions.
I will say that the director is great about returning your calls, emails or facebook messages. Even after she has your money.
A few things I think she might want to change are the following:
We had orientation Monday morning, so most arrived on Sunday. Our rooms for Sunday and Monday were not paid for. We had to check out of our rooms on Thursday (pageant day) and into a new room with our family or whatever. That day was covered, but we couldn't stay in the room that was paid for. The hotel was a nice hotel, the rooms the contestants stayed in were small and in the older part of the hotel. But some of the contestants stayed with family in the main part of the hotel and said their rooms were big and nice.
Our orientation consisted of a tour around the hotel, which was nice because the hotel was so big it was like running a maze to find the different rooms and places where we needed to be. After that we did a group photo shoot in one of the lobbies outside the ball rooms. We also had individual pictures taken as well. That was nice.
This was from 10-3:30 during this time we did not get to eat at all. After orientation and the photo shoot we had some time to get ready before we went to Jurassic World.
The theater we went to was one of a kind. We got to see the movie in 3D, (so if you get motion sickness it wasn't great) But the chairs reclined and were very comfortable so if you needed a nap and if you can sleep during movies, it wasn't bad. After the movie it was back to the hotel for bed. Oh and if we wanted popcorn or drinks, we had to buy it ourselves.
Tuesday was a long day. Some of us were up at 4am or earlier to get ready. We had to be at the pool by 6:30 am for another photo shoot. After our swimsuit photo shoot we then changed into evening gown and went out front of the hotel and had our evening gown photo shoot. By the time both photo shoots were over it was around 9:30 am. We then had to be at rehearsal by 9:45 am, we were told it we were late they would deduct points off our scores, so we dare not be late. meanwhile some of us still had not eaten anything and were extremely hungry. Rehearsal ended around 2-2:30, we had to be at the directors penthouse suite by 3 pm for our forum (platform presentations). This is where each lady was allowed 3-5 min. to share about her platform. I had time to change and rush to get up to the suite. So by now I was so hungry I felt light headed. But we were told there would be a snack tray provided. So I felt okay not grabbing something before I rushed over there.
The forum started, and even though it said 3-5 min, some ladies took 15-20 min. It was really long. The snack tray was carrots and some cupcakes that one of the contestants brought. Not exactly what I was thinking for "snack tray" but I ate it. After our forum which ran late, we didn't get out of there until 6, we were free to go do whatever. Remind you, some of us had been up since 4 am. and had only carrots and a cupcake all day to eat.
Wednesday was interviews. There were local salons that "sponsored" our hair and makeup. But it was suggested to tip them anywhere between $50-$75. After I had my hair and makeup done I was in tears. I had about 15 min. to get changes and try to fix my hair and makeup before my interview. After your interview you were free until 3 pm. We then had rehearsals from 3-9:30 pm. Again no dinner was served.
Thursday was pageant day, we started off with rehearsals at 9 am. We had a 45 min break to move all our stuff out of the room we had been staying in, to our new rooms. then we had to go back for roll call and the cocktail party where we had to try to sell tickets to the pageant. Finally by 6:30 we had to be back stage getting ready for the pageant at 7 pm. Again we were served no food all day.
By the time the pageant was over I think we were all so tired and hungry no one wanted to stick around for pictures. Oh and for the amount you pay to enter this pageant we received a sash (if you wanted rhinestones it cost extra) and a crown. Then at the pageant we were given a smaller competition sash with a sash pin that broke because it was so cheap. And our hotel rooms were paid for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, but we couldn't stay in our rooms Thursday night.
I was so disappointed in the amount of money I paid and what I received in return. It was not worth the money. I forgot to say that if we wanted a printed version of the program book we had to buy it, but it was free from us online.

Subject: Why are former state title holders allowed to compete again for the same state title? This is very strange to me and unfair in my opinion. It's also appears to be a bit greedy. Give someone else a chance to win and get the experience of going to the national pageant. It's very discouraging for newcomers because they have to compete against a former Miss State.
Date Posted:11/29/15 8:53:47pm
I went to look at when my next state pageant would be held as I am interested in the Ms. Division... and their Facebook pages no longer exist. On Wikipedia the words "Miss United States Logo" has a slash through it. What's up?
Subject: Trying to understand the beauty of pageant photos with the pouty face and underarms showing. What judge wants to see that and find it appealing. What happened to the graceful, classic photos? Bring them back.....don't want to see your ARM PITS.
Author: what am I missing here.....those photos are aweful [ Edit | View ]
Subject: What is the best pageant for a newlywed woman in her late 20s (no children) with a lot of Miss pageant experience. I am not ready to jump into Mrs. America or United States. I am looking for something well run that's not extremely expensive. I love community service, work full time, Ph.D. candidate in the DMV area. Suggestions?
Subject: I hope this is okay but I feel very compelled to share this. My friend and I won a photo contest for the World Tourism Pageant back in September. She has had contact with us once or twice since then, and it was AFTER WE contacted the director. It's now OCT 22- and since we won ( Sept 28-) she has NEVER posted WE WON, never posted the OTHER WINNERS, either on her FB page or the FB Like page. We have not gotten our C/S- she HAS since then held another photo contest and POSTED ALL THOSE- Even named them. She has also consistently welcomed others up to this day. We feel abandoned, forgotten, and NOT WANTED. I am just glad I didn't spend any more money on this pageant. Don't you either. I am very upset. We have been abandoned. Can back it all up with SS. Don't do this pageant.

Subject: Just got back from Mrs. America, I am going to say what many are thinking but too fearful to speak which is absolute BS because these ladies spent wayyyyyy too much money to be treated like they were at a cattle call. This year was nothing but a HOT MESS!!!! The deal with Russia was never going to happen and most of us knew that so you scramble at the last minute to throw some crappy production together?? Yes, it may have appeared to look decent on livestream but the process getting to just passable was frustrating for everyone competing. They literally left the girls no time for anything but rehearsals because it had to be done in three days. And who has a pageant during the work week and then livestreams when no one can watch but families or those with 2nd shift jobs.

News - Vanessa Williams returns to Miss America after 32 years to serve as Head Judge for the 2016 pageant.
Press Release: Atlantic City, NJ (August 31, 2015) -The Miss America Organization, Dick Clark productions and ABC announced today that actress, New York Times bestselling author, mathematician and education advocate Danica McKellar will be a judge on the “2016 Miss America Competition.” She joins previously announced celebrity judges including country star Brett Eldredge, author and wife of the late U.S. Navy SEAL "American Sniper" Chris Kyle, Taya Kyle, entrepreneur and businessman of ABC’s “Shark Tank,” Kevin O’Leary, 2014 Paralympic snowboarding bronze medalist, Amy Purdy and television and recording star, Zendaya. TV personality Chris Harrison (ABC's "The Bachelor") will host alongside actress and entrepreneur Brooke Burke-Charvet, whoreturns as co-host. Nick Jonas will serve as the official music curator of the evening.
The “2016 Miss America Competition” returns to Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall on SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 13 (9:00 - 11:00p.m./ET) on the ABC Television Network. The evening will be filled with glitz and glam as 52 women compete for the coveted crown and scholarship.
Subject: Do directors and judges do research on contestants anymore? There seems to be an awful lot of contestants, high placers, and winners who shouldn't be there according to all the publicly posted rules and regulations of pageants. False bios, non-existent service that's created and rewarded, questionable photos and history that is overlooked, and paid-for titles when patronizing the right people. Is this where pageantry is headed now?

A few of my friends felt that I should start my own Pageant coaching classes. I stated helping girls in pageants in 2013 but never took it to a business level.I was modeling for awhile, then got into pageants. It was easy to teach others but I could never win for my self. Now that I finally won a crown for my self Ms. Caribbean Gemz 2015. I think I am ready to start teaching as a profession but I am not to sure where to start.
I remember the hardest part for me during the pageant was speaking but I am not to sure if that's the main thing I should focus on.
