I have lived overseas for the last two years. I decided to check out this message board, for old time sakes. Wow, people have become bitter. It used to be fantastic pageant discussion. Maybe this is because of the lack of transparency in pageantry or we miss the good old days of pageantry. I loved seeing the scores and rooting for my favorite. I also miss the grace of the evening gown competition. The semi-final interviews were very entertaining. Times change but elegance and grace never go out of fashion.

On one negative note, I see that the same egotistical bore is still posting on the board. Perhaps he is the reason people are no longer coming to this board.

It may or may not be true but which pageant would you say seemed the most Fixed to you Mine would be

Miss USA 2003 The Latin theme seemed Favorite toward the winner Susie Castillo

Miss Universe 2001 Puerto Rico Judges, the venue, Puerto Rico was called last and just thrown high scores no way she beat greece in SS Pageant should have been won by Greece!

Any others?

So while I'm totally fine with that, I have a question and am not trying to be condescending about it. Considering that the last winner was a career woman as a nuclear scientist, I'd like to know what IMG is doing to attract young women with similar career aspirations in their professional lives. I see a huge disconnect as the rewards aren't in line with their career directions? Before, it worked because the girls were interested in media, advertising, modeling, acting, etc. However, women within many other areas they seem to want to crown isn't attracted to pageantry because it would infringe and potentially harm their job growth in progress. What I've been thinking about is this. It may be too tall of a desire on IMG's part because women working in professional environments risk a lot leaving their jobs just to enter a life of B rated appearances. I say B rated because I really haven't see them get much recognition and attention in the media afterwards over recent years. The appearances that I see aren't very impressive. I don't mean to be blunt or rude. But I the type of contestant they wish to attract and the type of reward that is provided afterwards, what would these women say as to why they want to be Miss USA. Have they thought of this issue or am I mistaken about what doors are getting opened up for the young women afterwards? Please spare me with the philanthropic motives of being a great role mode. They are young women who can't afford to throw in the towel for a USA title that spares them no true purpose towards their professional success. Therefore, WHAT AM I MISSING? YOU ARE WELCOME TO CORRECT ME WHERE I AM OFF BASE OR IF I'M CLEARLY OUT OF LINE FROM BEING IGNORANT, AND YOU'RE VERY WELCOME TO DEBATE MY ENTIRE THOUGHT IF I'M TOTALLY MISINFORMED. LOOKING FORWARD TO YOUR COMMENTARY.

Happy Friday, y'all! There's something that's been on my mind heavily all morning and I hope to have the discussion here with you guys... I have a question that I would like to ask.

WHY does today's society appear to be "afraid" of and somewhat "turned off" by BEAUTY PAGEANTS?

From slowly straying from the main component of pageants, BEAUTY, to focusing on what seems like a good 80-90% on personality interviews, to referring to them as a "competition" or a "program"....why, in today's society, do beauty pageants appear to be so damn terrible in the eyes of the general public? Why can't they just be exactly what they are? BEAUTY PAGEANTS. Leave your thoughts below...

I heard very reliable information that really disheartened me in regards to this years miss usa pageant and I want your opinions. There were a handful of girls this year (won't mention which states ) who didn't get to go to any appearances at miss usa (except for one-- where all 51 contestants were invited). There were girls there who literally stayed in their room all week except for meals and rehearsals. To me, this news was the turning point in my move away from the miss usa system. I don't believe this ever happened under the prior owners, EVER. Even if a girl didn't stand a chance in hell of making semis, she was still invited to multiple appearances. It's sad that some girls left this pageant being made to feel worthless. Especially coming from a pageant who claims to be 'empowering women' Can you say hypocritical?

She was welcomed by a group of pageant fans. They got the opportunity to ask her question. All fans who attended the event say Iris is very sweet and humble, a true Miss Universe.

Once again, we have very strong Teen contestants competing for the title of Teen USA this year. I think the big underlying question is how will the new IMG regime affect the outcome of the pageant. Personally I hope the leave Teen alone. I think we should still be looking for a beautiful, all-American, naturally gorgeous, girl next door. Of course I'm all about philanthropy and community engagement at the Teen level. We shall see.

My Top 16 Teens right now are:

NEVADA
CALIFORNIA
SOUTH CAROLINA
ARIZONA
LOUISIANA

ARKANSAS
TEXAS
HAWAII
NORTH CAROLINA
OHIO

ALABAMA
UTAH
WASHINGTON
FLORIDA
IOWA
PENNSYLVANIA

Has it ever happened to you that you liked a pageant girl, so you started to follow her on social media... and then after a while you wanted to unfollow, because you couldn't stand her Instagram persona?

I know probably lots of you are going to say Nia, but for me it was above all Kristen Dalton. I sort of liked her when she was Miss USA. From time to time I still check her Instagram, because I think she's just oh so pretty. But then each time I just can't. Sister Christian makes me roll my eyes each time.

It crossed my mind. She was pretty but there were also another 15 beautiful blondes this year. We all thought the winner would be a blonde this year. Very competitive.

I am an avid fan of Miss USA pageants and have a couple questions. Did Jeannine Ford loan her Miss USA gown to a Miss Arizona who competed a few years later? Also, back in the 1970's and 1980's were girls forbidden to switch gowns from prelims to finals??

Even if Kara never said she's a "nuclear" scientist, she DID say she was a scientist, a physical scientist, or sometimes a chemist.

Some of you are confusing education with profession. If you studied law but never practiced, you're not a lawyer. If you studied nursing but doesn't work as a nurse, you're not a nurse. If you studied education but never taught, you're not a teacher.

When she and MUO describes her as "a physical scientist at the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission," THAT indicates that SCIENTIST is her job/profession there at NRC.

Press release and video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1NztujE4Xzs


But we now know that's not true. Her job is "Emergency Preparedness Specialist" which doesn't require a degree in sciences at all. In fact, B.S./B.A. in emergency management, public safety or homeland security is preferred.


The Nuclear Regulatory Commission felt the need enough to clarify as they spoke to the Washington Post and shied away from saying she's a "scientist":

"Basically, she reviews emergency plans for nuclear power plants to determine if they meet regulators’ muster"

"...her hard work and dedication to regulating nuclear facilities as an emergency preparedness specialist..."

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/reliable-source/wp/2017/05/15/miss-dc-kara-mccullough-the-new-miss-usa-has-a-super-serious-job


From her job description, she doesn't do much of anything science-related; doesn't do any research/studies. Yet she's described as a "SCIENTIST AT NSC" as her profession. How so?

Her supposed job definitely helped her win, since it made a huge impression on the judges and MUO.

So Miss Teen USA is 2-3 months away and apparently there's no date or location yet. Could this mean that MUO is finally pulling the plug on Teen?

I heard rumors about October 27 in Orlando/November 11 in Vegas but I don't think those are true due to potential conflicts with state pageants.
