I have seen SOOO very little about the Galaxy Pageant at the International Level this year..... Why is this???? This USED to be one of the most prestigious pageants in the US!!! What is going on with this??? For the last couple of years I am just really confused with the results. Does anyone else feel this way ??? I'm not getting the selections for the Titleholders?? Galaxy used to be a Beauty Pageant bery much like Miss Universe, now it seems like very average women with pseudo missions to save the world are winning... All pageant systems want smart articulate women, but COM'ON. Can someone please tell me what the heck is going on??? I'd really like a explanation , because with the exception of the Georgia teen, this years winners are abysmal, uninteresting , and not worthy of a Galaxy Crown. I know this probably sounds mean , I just don't get it. Are there inside politics at work? Is there a new director? I cannot be the only one seeing this.

WATCH: 'Game Of Crowns' Rivals 'Real Housewives'
Drama, Glamour, gowns and the race for the crown: the series explores the lives of six pageant wives.

CLICK ON PHOTO TO WATCH VIDEO CLIP: "GAME OF CROWNS"



"You ain't seen nuthin' until you've seen married women compete for a sparkly crown." If you love the drama of The Real Housewives, then you'll want to see these pageant wives duke it out in Bravo's new show Game Of Crowns.

The reality show follows "six pageant wives whose lives revolve around glamour, perfection and winning at any cost-- even if it means competing against their own teenage daughters!"

"On-stage, it's all about world peace but off-stage, it can be war."

There's no amount of butt glue or Botox that will keep these women from fighting for the crown. Game Of Crowns premieres in July 2014 on Bravo.

So...who are these beauty queens? Meet the cast below.

Susanna Paliotta, Mrs. Nation USA 2013 and Mrs. Massachusetts Perfect Woman, is a pageant mom to her two daughters as well as a participant.

Shelley Carbone, a wholesome mother of four, won the title of Mrs. Connecticut 2010 before going on to win the title of Mrs. America 2011.

Lynne Diamante, who has a law degree and runs a multi-million dollar eyewear company, is a pageant lifer who was crowned Mrs. Rhode Island 20 years after winning Miss Rhode Island.

Vanassa Sebastian, whose marriage into a casino dynasty funds her pageant addiction, was Mrs. Connecticut 2012.

Leha Guilmette, Mrs. Rhode Island 2013, is currently preparing for the 2013 Mrs. America Pageant.

Lori-Ann Marchese, who holds the title of Mrs. Connecticut 2013, will face-off against Leha in the 2013 Mrs. America Pageant.

Will you be watching?

Subject: Should larger pageants do payment plans for state queens to come up with their state fees? Most pageants I've done want the full amount paid before shipping crown and sash. If there are payments allowed what do you feel is a reasonable time for people to finish paying the state title upon application and initial deposit? 60 days? 90 days?

At the risk of being accused of overposting ;) ...here goes... The American Beauty pageant system is still accepting applications for at large titleholders in many states in Mrs. Ms and Elite divisions. The deadline is fast approaching though!

Elite American Beauty - Unmarried, Married, Divorced, Single, Widowed, age 50 and over as of the start date of the National pageant.

Mrs. American Beauty- Married, 21 and over as of the start date of the National pageant.

Ms. American Beauty- Unmarried, Married, Divorced, Single, Widowed, age 30 and over as of the start date of the National pageant.

The national pageant is held in June, 24-27th in Kissimmee, Florida and is cheaper than most state pageants. The entry fee is only $495, plus a $100 ad fee, (of $595 for those who have mentioned they don’t like the costs divided like this) :)

The fee includes:
-Custom crown

-Embroidered satin sash with rhinestone trim

-Photo Cd of the pageant

-Trip to downtown Disney

-Admission to watch Tiny Miss, Little Miss, Jr Miss and Pre-Teen American Beauty Pageant which is held on a different day than the Mrs., Ms. & Elite division. (You are not competing against nor will you be on stage with little kids for any part of the competition or crowning!)

-Admission to watch Miss US International & Miss US Supranational Pageant which is held at a different time than the American Beauty divisions entirely.

Judging for the Ms. & Mrs. divisions is 40% Interview, Swimsuit OR Fitness 20%, Evening Gown 30% and Overall Stage Presence 10%

Judging for the Elite division is 50% interview, Swimsuit OR Fitness 20%, Evening Gown 20% and Overall Stage Presence 10%

There are currently only 8 ladies registered in Mrs. 5 in Ms. and 3 in Elite, an increase from the previous 2 years but still low enough to make it worth the trip to Florida :)

Our system is not leaden with contractual burdens; you are free to compete in other systems while you hold a state or national title. All that we ask is that national titleholders come back to crown the successor next year and that you make 12 appearances in your national crown and sash throughout the year.
The minimum prize package is $250 cash, plus a bunch of other prizes and it goes up from there, the more delegates there are, the bigger the cash prize is!
I am mostly recruiting for the Midwest, which is my region and so far only Michigan and Great Lakes are crowned. I am looking for representation in Ms. Mrs. & Elite for Iowa, Missouri, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois & Indiana…however if you are from any other state and are interested please do not hesitate to email me or apply on my website. I will help anyone! The team of regional directors really works together on this venture to make sure that the delegates are all taken care of and have everything they need regardless of where they are from and who is the regions manager!

Are there any national-level Mrs. pageants that are not in Florida or California? Both are quite a hike for me and the airfare would eat up a big chunk of my budget.

Directors: If I have to spend money to get my prize, it's not a prize! Grrrrrrrrrrr........

Hi is a bodycon dress appropriate for a pageant interview? The pageant I'm competing in says this is a glamorous pageant. I just don't to be out of place. Also are there any places I can get a great interview dress.

Thanks

Subject: I was looking at FB at national queens. When did entering a pageant turn into "who can do the most public service or charitable works?" Yes, I love doing that. But what happened to just going and competing, trying to be your best, and looking good? In most pageants, the beauty ends up winning anyway. What does this have to do with reading to children or running in marathons? Did the judges pick the winners for that reason, or were they looking at their beauty & fitness? Why do new winners feel they have to jump into a charity or do good deeds based on their looking fine in a swimsuit? We need to separate our pageants so that we know which path to take. Even Miss USA pretends she is on missions to do good works. Are you kidding me? She was chosen for her gorgeous face and bod, not her community service. I wish pageants would stop trying to be do-gooders in their marketing, and just come out and admit they want a Sophia Varga as their winner. At least I'd know how to compete.

The Care and Feeding of Your Runner Ups
I was recently entered a pageant. Like many of the other contestants out in the pageantry world, I was determined to win! This year would be the year!
I trained like an Olympic athlete... I groomed myself and re groomed... I rehearsed day in and day out for weeks. Anything and everything which might be an issue was addressed and polished like a penny.
Pageant day came, and I sold it like ice on a hot day!
And when the crowning moment came… Someone else’s name was called.

Well, darn!
I will admit, I was disappointed. But like any experienced competitor, I had learned the way to treat the winner. This was an etiquette that had been established long before I came along. As the runner up, I was expected to smile and congratulate the winner. I was expected to remain positive. I was to not look back at the sacrifices of time and money I had made, but was to look forward to the future of trying again.
What I didn’t expect was the way people treated me as I came off the floor and into the crowd.
Maybe it is just me being a little sensitive (normal for someone who didn’t win), but I have to ask myself what some people were thinking when they approach a losing competitor after not winning something they worked hard for!

What I liked and wanted to hear after losing the pageant;
“You did really good! I enjoyed seeing you on stage.”
Or “I was cheering for you! I’m glad you entered!”
Or even “I know you’re disappointed, but I hope you do enter next year because you still did a good job.” (To be fair, this is what most people have said.)
But I also have had more than a few of these well-intended, but curious comments, like
“You know where you went wrong? Your face. You have a great body but something about your face is just not right!”
Here is another good one… “You did much better this year. Usually you look so clueless on stage. We were all talking about this in the audience.” (Um, thanks?)
Another well intended but still brutal comment, “Where did you place again? Why didn’t you win? Can you explain to me why the judges picked the winner over you?”

The funny thing is these comments were intended to make me feel better! I genuinely believe these individuals came to me with the intention of helping me by giving me their opinions and feedback.
The problem was not their intentions, but the timing of their comments and way they were delivering their message.

I think this was simply due to a lack of knowledge of how it feels to be on a pageant stage and the fact that we don’t have a good tradition of what to say to someone who didn’t win.
So I have decided it is time to discuss the care and feeding of the runners up!
Win or lose, when you walk off that stage, you are tired and just want to relax! You have been standing in heels sometimes literally for days. You have invested major energy and focus in trying to be the best you can be for the judges. At the end of the pageant, all you want to do is sit down and enjoy some snacks and good company! So I have created some rules for the end of the pageant!

Rule number one: Let them eat cake!
I know it is tempting to rush your favorite friend with your notes and advice while it is still fresh in your head, but now is not the time! Write down your notes on your program or notepad, and simply let your friend bask in the fact that she got up on stage and showed her best stuff! Let her eat some post-pageant cake and have a glass of wine. Save the comments on how to improve for when your friend announces she is ready to start her next pageant. By then, she will have rested and recovered and will be more willing to hear your helpful advice. This time also gives you a chance to figure out how to phrase your feedback in a way that is constructive versus critical.

This brings us to
Rule number two: Breathing space!
After a pageant, the guests go home. But the queens still have to clean up, pack, check out of the hotel, travel home, greet the family, catch up on calls and mail, catch up on work or school, deal with a household that has been unattended for several days and deal with projects and commitments that had to be pushed back due to the pageant.
Even the most diehard queen is going to need a little downtime to catch up and breathe before committing to new pageant projects.
Many times it is tempting to try to get a queen we like back on the pageant pony. But having a break to regroup and refocus is so essential for someone who puts so much of her life and her resources out there. Even the winner and director deserve a chance to find their footing before attacking the national pageant stage.

Last but not least is
Rule number three: No post-pageant sales pitches!
Immediately after a pageant is not a perfect time to hit your favorite girl up for expensive photo packages, body products, new pageant systems and other fun wares. Most major pageants involve thousands of dollars to compete. Unless your competitor is well funded by her family or sponsor, she probably is not going to be open to hearing about new projects in the near future, and your amazing product or service will seem less welcome and more bothersome.
Business cards are your best friend in this case. Hand them out with a hand-written message of “Call me when you are ready” on the back. This will bring way more loyal business to your door than any quick sales pitch immediately after the pageant.

These are my top 3 post-pageant rules…
Anyone have any others to add?

We have just found out that this charity puts on a national pageant each year as a fundraiser and the entry fees from each state is part of that! Well guess what, ALL the money raised for this director, at the state level, at this pageant paid her entry for this national charity fundraiser. She did not tell us that part!!! Today her photo just popped up on Facebook as the new State Titleholder for this national pageant! What would you do about it? Move on or expose the truth? My daughter is 12 and thought she was helping people not helping someone go to a national pageant! I was directed to this board for some advice because I can be anonymous because she will definitely cause us problems in pageantry here.

I didn’t win my state title this year, so I was looking into a smaller system to compete in this summer to keep my skills up.

I don’t see anything that is appealing! Entry fees have gone through the roof! $1000 and up just for entry fees? And this does not include hotel and travel or ads in the program book.

Then if I do enter, the competition areas sound less like fun and more like a lot of work! Write essays, make scrapbooks, document appearances, design websites. I feel less like I am doing pageantry and more like doing grad work!
I also want the system to be reliable! I don’t want to enter a pageant only to find out it is cancelled 3 months later.
Aren’t there any good old fashioned pageant systems for women over 35 who just want to come and compete and have fun without breaking the bank?

I know there are not a lot of Galaxy fans here on the board, but I am seeing some things I like.

1.) The webpage is all spelled out. Entry fee is very clear. Expectations are there. Pageant dates and location clearly listed and decided on. Cut off date to enter is also clearly listed.

2.) The queens in the photos all look sharp. Each and every one of them look experienced and worthy of winning a crown. They look like what I picture in my mind when I picture a pageant queen.

3.) Speaking of the crown - Gorgeous! All of them from state level up.

I understand there are issues with the director wanting to have her friends used for hair and make-up, photos, and other services, but they seem to do a good job, so maybe it is worth it.

Directors, if you advertise that you are a national pageant, then don't use judges that are from the area where the pageant is held. Your judges need to be from out of state, and from several different states.

I'm super shocked that there is only one person on this board that questioned the craziness that is the entry fee, contract, expectations, and not to mention the director of this pageant. Take it from me NOT WORTH IT and you will probably leave emotionally damaged from this tyrant of a director. She doesn't just "expect" a lot from her titleholders, she "demands" it and threatens, degrades, and abuses to get her way. I saw it happen to the outgoing titleholders and even some of the contestants before they announced the winner (not to mention there seems to always be controversy about who wins and how). Take my advice, STAY FAR AWAY from this pageant so long as Susan Jeske is running it. You'll safe yourself a lot of money, headaches, and heartaches in the end.

EXCITING OPTIONAL COMPETITION!!!!

Ms. Inspirational 2014

Our judges are looking for the most Inspirational Contestant of 2014 and will reward her with a beautiful crown, banner and amazing rhinestone necklace. They will be looking for:

"Someone who has an abstract concept or idea. The delegate with spiritual connotations as well as practical connotations. A woman that inspires the mind, emotions, and/or the body to a higher level of feelings or activity."

Are you that woman? For a $100 contribution, you will present an essay of up to 250 words of why you feel you should be selected Ms. Inspirational 2014. With this essay, you may present up to two attachments – one can be a series of photos showing you actively making a difference, and the other could be a letter or certificate from an organization or person that you have inspired to get heights.

After interviews on Saturday, April 26th (after the final balloting of the interviews is concluded), our judges will review your presentation and cast a vote of 1-10 for you. ONLY the presentation packet you prepare will be scored; nothing on the interview will carry over and none of your stage competition will be in consideration for this award. This is truly based on your presentation on paper.

The award and crowning of our 2014 Ms. Inspirational will take place on Sunday during the Ms. & Mrs. Florida United States. There will be a 1st and 2nd honorable mention for your court as well.

If you are interested, please send $100 via PayPal to Director_MrsFlorida@yahoo.com and submit your paperwork by April 10th via e-mail attachments or you can mail a hard copy to: Florida U.S. Pageants, 8 Flagler Drive, Palm Coast, FL 32137

Only ONE Ms. Inspirational will be selected from the group of 2014 Ms. and Mrs. Florida United States state finalists. This is a title that you can proudly wear throughout your reign and continue to represent The Pageant With A Purpose!

Subject: Is it just me or do titleholders no longer make appearances the way they used to? I keep looking for photos and I only find that maybe one or two titleholders make consistent appearances and doing charitable work. This is very frustrating for me because it takes away from the prestigious titles that some of these women hold. I guess I thought that queens were still working it and working it hard, but I guess I'm wrong. Am I not looking in the right place? I follow many of them on FB but don't see much activity.

How do you handle taking a former queen picture at the state pageant and you and a former queen DO NOT like each other? Do I ignore her or do I fake being nice? Most former queens know we do not get along and we do not like each other.

We are also asked to sit in a group all former queens together and it makes my skin crawl to even be in the same room as her. I have thought about not even going to the pageant so that I do not have to see her, but I want to support my new sister queen.

Help, how do I act and handle this?

One of the contestants this year shared with me that there is no future return date at this time. Sadly, that sounds like MWI is over for good. Wonder what happens with the contestants already signed up.

The American Beauty pageant system is currently seeking delegates for the national pageant in June.
Entry is only $495 plus a $100 ad fee. Nationals are in June in Florida.
Some states are holding prelims, many are crowning at large. Mid West Regional Pageants are holding a prelim in Ohio and one in Kentucky. The Ohio date is April 19th and Kentucky is April 26th. Wisconsin, Minnesota, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Iowa and Missouri are all being awarded at large this year while we plan our mid west regional pageant for next year to include all states.
The American Beauty system is under the national direction of Britt Harrison, of Miss US International & Miss US Supranantional and is an exceptional national director with a stellar reputation.
You can go to the Mid West Regional Pageant website to sign up for Ohio, Kentucky or to apply at large for any other state, if you are outside of the Mid West Region I will forward your application to the director in your area :)

I am a MS and want to compete before I remarry. I have looked a several MS pageants and feel that I can do my best in the Ms America Pageant. I have tried to contact the Director for over two months and have not gotten ANY response.

On her website, she provide the responsibilities of the winner (which is detailed and specific)BUT what are her responsibilities to the her contestants. I am frustrated that she does not seem to take her own pageant seriously.

I have friends who are Directors and cannot get enough girls to compete and other Directors can get the girls but do not respect their time and investment.

If you are going to Direct (or own a system) then please be good at it!!!!!!!
