Subject: Agency under fire for downplaying beauty pageants’ sex appeal


Author:
Lisa Fickenscher (NY Post)

Date Posted: 19:17:13 01/17/17 Tue

WME/IMG’s first real chance at putting its fingerprints all over the Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss Teen USA pageants is rubbing some people the wrong way.

Some local officials in the Miss Teen USA competition are upset that the talent agency is putting less emphasis on sex appeal and a greater focus on fitness.

Among its first moves as the new owner, WME/IMG eliminated the swimsuit portion of the Miss Teen USA contest — which features competitors ages 14 to 19 — in August, replacing it with an activewear segment to highlight the teens’ fitness over sex appeal.

“The girls are very proud of their bodies and work hard to get that way,” said Paula Miles, a state director who oversees the pageants in Louisiana, Alabama and the Carolinas.

“We are in the South and have beaches everywhere,” said Miles, reacting to WME/IMG’s decision to nix the swimsuit competition and replace it with contestants wearing tank tops, bicycle shorts, leggings, sneakers and the like — to show off their athleticism.

While upset about the change, Miles knows that going forward, “we have to [embrace] the activewear.”

For the Miss Universe pageant, which airs Jan. 29, the swimsuit competition will remain — but WME/IMG will have contestants walk out on stage in groups of four rather than one by one.

Michael Antinoro, the talent agency’s head of production and programming, thinks the changes are long overdue.

The beauty pageant business is about much more than “women walking on the stage in swimsuits and gowns and not messing up a question,” said Antinoro, who oversees the Miss Universe Organization, which includes Miss USA and Miss Teen USA.

The agency owned Miss Universe for just four months when last year’s pageant was held — not enough time to make major changes.

For this year’s pageant, to be broadcast by Fox, IMG’s changes will be clear.

The agency bought the pageants from President-elect Donald Trump in September 2015 after the New York billionaire got into hot water during the presidential campaign by denigrating some Mexican immigrants.

Broadcast-rights owner Univision dumped the shows, and NBCUniversal — which owned 51 percent of Miss Universe — looked to sell.

The snit resulted in a lawsuit. It was settled 11 months ago with Trump gaining full ownership.

He then flipped it to IMG for a reported $22 million.

Also, WME/IMG is looking to bring in more fashion designers.

“Anecdotally speaking, beauty pageants are not politically forward-thinking,” Antinoro said, adding that “we want to empower women to get away from [stereotypes like] ‘you look like a beauty queen.’”

The three-hour broadcast will also include more stories and video clips about the individual contestants.

Over the past year, producers traveled to 40 countries, filming about half of the 87 contestants in their daily lives.

Contestants will be asked more topical, weightier questions on subjects like gun control and politics.

One thing from 2016 will remain the same: Steve Harvey will be the host. Last year, Harvey created some instant viral video by announcing the wrong winner — before quickly correcting himself.

I was thinking about some of the great contestants from the 1980's who almost won Miss America, finishing as 1st runner-up. Does anyone know how many times the following competed on the state level before winning?
Paige Phillips (Alabama), Sandra Truitt (Illinois), Desiree Daniels (Tennessee), Suzette Charles (New Jersey), Melissa Bradley (Ohio), Sherry Thrift (South Carolina), Julianne Smith (Virginia), Patricia Brandt (Louisiana), Mya Walker (Colorado) and Virginia Cha (Maryland).

Subject: Sure, I'm a Pageant Girl

Everyone who competes in pageants has a story; I am no exception. This year I competed with over 180 other girls for the title Miss New York USA. The Miss Universe program is acknowledged as the most competitive pageant system, and the state of New York is one of the hardest to win. A record one hundred and eighty six girls competed this year.

My biggest take away from my first pageant was that you need to extensively research your competition. The Miss USA pageant is nothing more than a beauty pageant. They allegedly have a scholarship program, but that is a stretch. The scholarship is small and awarded only to an unremarkable school in upstate New York. I would be surprised to hear that any winner actually used their prize money.

If you have a career, extensive schooling and anything that passes as a talent you need to be competing in the Miss America system. More on that later.

Miss USA is not a scholarship program; however, it is an excellent beauty pageant. The competition is made up of three parts: interview, swim wear and evening gown. The interview is only two minutes long. The judges could not care less about your accomplishments, they only want to see that you can string a few words together without sounding daft (an accomplishment for some girls). You could say anything in interview if you answer the question they ask, and answer it confidently.

Anyone considering Miss New York USA should know that at least eighty percent of the girls have never competed in a pageant before. Quite a few girls posted on social media that they “qualified” and “were selected” to compete. Don’t be fooled, there is no selection process to become a state finalist. Anyone can pay to play, and pay you will… If you pay early you can compete to the tune of $1,300. If you wait you will pay $1,500. Miss USA is a business. They would have double the number of girls compete if they could. You are not special because you are selected, you are special because you chose to sign up.

The swimsuit competition is your chance to hit the runway. I don’t know many people that are thrilled at the prospect of strutting the stage in what may as well be lingerie. Deciding to step on the runway is a massive accomplishment. The pageant asks that you wear a solid color suit, and if you want to win you will wear a bikini that shows off your fabulous spray tan.

image1

During this portion of the competition it becomes obvious how many girls are uncomfortable with their bodies. I cannot count how many vegan, calorie counting machines I met competition weekend. Fortunately, I am a long distance runner and that takes care of my body well enough. I didn’t diet extensively for the competition. To fuel my body for long distance running I have to feed myself well. I do not run so that I can compete. Running is my lifestyle, the pageant was a two-day event. The pageant certainly motivated me to be a more diligent runner, but that is just the beginning. I will run for the rest of my life.

I witnessed so many ladies making changes in their lifestyle just for the pageant. What good is it to develop new, healthy habits if they do not last?

image2-1
The second most prevalent mistake I noticed were girls competing who could not afford to. If you are going to compete in the Miss USA system you need to have at least $2,500 readily available. The entry fee is too steep to halfway commit. You need a professionally done headshot, hair and makeup (unless you are a makeup artist or stylist yourself), and you need a stunning gown. If you can’t afford it don’t compete, it is most likely going to lead to regret. A girl this weekend told me she was feeling pessimistic about the finals, and that she was upset because this was her vacation money… I gave her the best advice I could, “It’s not about being pessimistic, it’s statistics. You have a 1 out of 186 chance of winning. That’s less than a one percent.” There were at least fifty girls this weekend competing that won the genetic lottery. Any of one of those fifty could have won and nobody would have batted an eye, the prettiest girl there had a 2% chance of success.

If you don’t have the money compete in Miss America system. They only ask that you fundraise $100 dollars to compete. That is a much more palatable entry fee. Miss America is truly a scholarship program, not an enterprise. They want girls who have talent, they want girls with a resume. If I compete again it will be for their Miss Manhattan title.

I competed for Miss New York USA because I am proud of myself. I am proud of my body. I am proud that I am successfully recovering from sexual assault. I am proud that I have a career. I walked away from this weekend realizing that I am a winner because unlike most girls I have an incredible life waiting on me. My title for the weekend was Miss Wall Street which said it all. I am blessed beyond reason. I love my life, I love my family and friends, and most importantly I love myself just the way I am.

If anything, do it for the photos! I can't wait to get the professional ones.

I have been going through many state locals that have been completed so far to save headshots for my state pageant collages, and I must say that this year's contestants in all states are so beautiful! We are going to have some gorgeous Miss States in 2017! A few of the states that have stood out to me as far as beauty while going through photos were AL, AZ, SC, NC, LA, and OH. WOW!!!!! I am SO excited for state pageants this year.
Well, let me know when states have completed their pageant seasons so I can jump into making their collage. I hope you liked the NH one. What did you like/dislike about it so I can make an even better one next time? Also, any collage requests? Thanks so much for your support guys, I love editing the photos and learning more about the local titleholders as I go!
Also, as many of you may or may not know, I am actually eligible to compete in the organization and will be competing in my state's open/sweeper pageant in March! So maybe I'll be editing my own headshot into a collage this year!

    Hello, pageant fans! Are there any states that have completed their local pageant season? I would like to start compiling headshots for state pageants and posting them like I did with Miss America headshots. Let me know if you have any requests for collages as well! I can do almost any subject, but would like to begin state headshots soon.

    Subject: Hi, local titleholder here. Does anyone have any recommendations for what to do when your crown breaks? Long story short, it was knocked around by TSA from my flight yesterday and the base snapped near the little MAO thing on the inside. I have an appearance coming up soon and I would like to wear my crown for it. What should I do?

    does anyone out there recall any contestant ever singing (for talent)what I consider to be one of the most beautiful songs ever written for the Broadway stage---"50 Percent" from "Ballroom"?

    What kind of monologue do you think works best on the state level? My local one was OK but I want to find something really competitive. I feel like it needs to be something really impressive to compete with the singers and dancers. I don't want to write my own about my life, I don't think it would be good in my area. What do you like best? Classic pieces like Shakespeare? Contemporary? Funny, dramatic?

    Thanks! My director is new and says I should just pick something I like.

    Subject: This is a message for formers..... I am working with a group of hopefuls and I would like some advice... I competed many moons ago and see now that I could have done much, much better than I did if I had done a few things differently. I am going to talk with them about my experiences and how I wish I could go back and talk to the 20 something ME and get a do-over. What would you tell your pageant self back in the day that would have let you place higher or win more often than you ultimately did? What do you wish you had known then about prep that you can see with 20/20 hindsight? Thanks in advance, friends!
