Mrs & Ms Pageant Chat Board

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.

What's Your thoughts?

Good morning! We have returned from Jacksonville and unfortunately find it necessary to address the malicious rumors being spread about our new Mrs. International.
After seeking legal counsel we have found that the inappropriate photos associated with her name are not her.
As many of you know, identity theft is very real and can affect more than just credit cards, as in this case.
As an organization we have demonstrated in the past how serious we take nudity and have taken a title for nude photos.
Our new Mrs. International is a woman of strong faith and good character, a mother and a wife. She does not deserve the hateful rumors being spread about her.

Don't waste your money.

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.

Hi everyone - after 16 years of dedication to Mrs. United States Pageant, I am resigning as a Director. I love Isabella Ilacqua, her family and pageant systems. However, I have decided to evolve and return to my true love - Pageant Coaching! I am stepping down as the Director of Mrs. California and Ms. Woman United States. It was a hard decision, but with a demanding job, and a need to spend more time with family and career, this was the right choice for me. I love you all and I am here for you as friend, sister queen, and you are part of my family....always! I made recommendations to Isabella and I know she will choose a great successor. I am here to always support and love you!

Prelims:Mac Duggal Fashion Show, Swimsuit Competition Costume (NO GOWN)

Finals: Opening number (silver dresses), Evening Gown Competition (ALL Delegates), Announce Top 15(All Previous Scores Now Discarded), Re-compete Swimsuit (Top 15), Change back into Gown, Announce Top 5, On stage Question (Top 5 Only), Crowning

Looks Like only the Swimsuit score and on stage question will count at the final for the crowning,

These are drastic changes to an established system with history, tradition, and a solid reputation for fairness.
It looks like a search for a Miss type swimsuit model
(this format is similar to the Miss United States format)
Not a coincidence since Cris Wilmer and Tony Ilacqua are running the show now. I don't know how state directors will be able to attract contestants now. Too all those who wanted a change from Isabella - your wish has been granted!

Your Thoughts Please!!!

I see so many comments on here complaining about someone not doing more with a crown that they won. Is there an official organization like the NCAA that monitors that kind of thing? Can we write tickets for those women who fail to meet our standards? Is there a Supreme Court to decide if showing up at the Local Tiny Miss Recycling Day in full regalia counts as an appearance or does it have to be digging ditches and picking up trash at the side of the road and you can just wear a short cocktail dress and banner for that one?

I am being fascitious, of course, but truly- why do you care? The director is the only one who can say whether her title holder is living up to the expectations of the crown. If he/she has no issues, then why would we?

If you do LOTS and LOTS of things with your crown then YAY! I wouldn't necessarily call showing up unasked in your crown and banner at a tourist spot on vacation as an appearance. But then if their director does then that's all that matters.

How about we cheer on our sisters in competition and cheer them during their year. If they didn't do exactly what you would have done with the crown remember that they won (hopefully, fair and square) and it's their year and their life. If you get a chance to win it next year- ROCK THAT THING!!!

Because we never know what is going on in a person's life- esp Mrs who balance family, sick/aging parents, school, Mom life, and work we should just let people live and let live.

I've heard people talk about American Beauty becoming a more established pageant, and an excellent option as a smaller pageant. However, I am debating between mrs america or mrs american beauty. I would not call myself experienced but I've done 4 Miss level pageants. Two of them were local fair pageants and I won both of those. My first pgeant was a miss usa prelim and I did not place, but my interview score was 5 points shy of perfect. I most recently competed in a state level miss United states pageant and I did not place but won interview. I am newly married, and I will be having my first child in late November. So my prep time is limited. My walk needs work, I know that. The state level for American beauty is in Feb 2016, and the state level for mrs America is June 2016.

My questions are 1) given the time frame that I have, which pageant is more worth it for me? 2) american beauty does have a fitness wear option, is this pgeant going to be more "winnable" for me?
Pros and cons to both? Opinions?
Also, AB is $300 fees and $100 ad page
So far America is $750 fees
