Subject: My Format Ideas for Miss America Broadcast

[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 23:04:28 10/12/14 Sun

Overall, the biggest problem I have with the telecast is that what the general "non pageant" public sees does not represent what the program is all about, it is often demeaning to the contestants (this year in particular), and a viewer who didn't understand the ins and outs of MAO judging will generally not understand how or why the winner wins. So to address these concerns, and to get some self-respect back in the program, here's what I would suggest. Note: It's highly likely this format would require more than 2 hours, but hey, it's one night a year. And all the live awards shows usually take 3-4 hours, so I don't think the length is a big deal.

Contestant intros: Girls introduce themselves, mention their educational background/status, and identify one benefit of the program (other than scholarships) that they have received from competing in the program. (Note: In rehearsal, the contestants, would each have to identify 3 main benefits, then one would be chosen by the producer for each girl, so everyone doesn't say the same thing. Also, the order of intros would be non-alphabetical to separate those contestants who did mention similar/same benefits.) Finally, for each girl, there would be a super on-screen showing how much scholarship money she had earned to date from MAO, including any awards presented during pageant week.

Top 15: Personally, I prefer seeing 15 compete on final night over 10. The more the merrier. And I may be in the minority on this, but I think the eliminations after each competition make for a more exciting show. The top 15 would be based strictly on competition scores from the 5 areas of prelim competition. There would be composite attribute scores, but those wouldn't come into play until the top 5. So the 15 semi-finalists would actually start the night even - all prior scores eliminated.

Also, there would be no switching to a 6-10 scale on final night, and competitions would be judges at face value, NOT taking into account their ability to do the job. As far as I'm concerned, their ability to do the job is captured in their interview score, and to a lesser extent in the other 4 competitions combined. If they have made the top 15, chances are they can do the job of Miss America, some better than others of course, but no one at that point would be an embarrassment to the organization.

The only scoring change I might suggest is to increase on-stage question to 10% and cut swimsuit to 10%. Also, on-stage questions would NOT be about their platform (mostly what you get are girls repeating the 30-45 second "sound bite" about their platform they have all perfected by the time they get to MA. As a result, in about 80-90% of the cases I've seen personally, their answers don't directly answer the questions they're asked. So instead of platform questions, I would focus on questions they might actually get asked as Miss America - interesting items from their resume, current events - but only if they are directly relevant to young women (i.e., nothing about ISIS, but education funding, sexual assaults on campuses, frat & sorority hazing, how millenials plan for their careers in an uncertain economy, rising costs of higher education, should everyone go to college, etc.)

So the top 15 are announced in random order, and still photos of each girl in ss and gown are shown, as well as a very brief sound bite from their interview.

Top 15 would first compete in evening wear (20% of their final night score). Based strictly on that competition, 12 would be announced as moving forward to the 2nd phase of competition, and 3 would be eliminated. And the 3 eliminated would be announced in placement order, 15th thru 13th. Each eliminated girl of the night would be given 20 seconds to express her feelings at that point. (I believe 99% of all contestants would say something positive, but if the occasional rogue contestant is bitter and shows it, so be it. I think it reflects poorly on her as an individual, and not on the program.) Now, since most people don't see Miss America live and in person, evening wear would also serve as a "videogenic" competition and judged not only on how the girl looks live, but on how her looks translate to video. The judges would view videos of each contestant's evening wear presentation, which might take the format of a "red carpet" appearance with a "reporter" asking about her dress. (Please, no more Tony Bowls or anyone dressing ALL the contestants.) The reason I put evening wear first, is that it would most likely eliminate the semi-finalists who are the least attractive. The 3 eliminated contestants would receive "Emerald" scholarships of a certain value (higher than any non-finalist scholarship).


Top 12 would compete in talent. Now this might be confusing, but I'll suggest it anyway. The 12 talents shown on the broadcast live would be the 12 highest scoring talents of the pageant. Some of the final night 12 would certainly be in that group, but some wouldn't. This way, the most talented non-finalists would be showcased instead of contestants who are strong in everything but talent. For the contestants in the top 12, who don't have "top 12" talents, 30-second clips of their prelim talent performance would be shown, and their prelim talent score would carry over onto the final night tabulation. It's the best way I can think of to stop making the talent competition a joke to the rest of "non-pageant" America. Talent would account for 30% of the final night score. Again, the eliminated contestants would be announced as finishing in either 12th place or 11th place overall. They eliminated duo would receive "Ruby" scholarships - higher value than "Emerald" but not as much as the 10 survivors will get. During talent, there would be pop-ups on the screen but they would be more like "graduated Magna Cum Laude in 3 years" and not "is afraid of the dark." Every pop-up fact would be something that makes the contestant look good, not silly.

The top 10 would be determined based their combined scores from talent and evening wear. So the actual split in scores at that point is 60% talent./40% evening wear, so you most likely eliminate the least talented contestants among those remaining. The top 10 would compete in swimsuit, accounting for 20% of the final night score, primarily because no one wants a chubby Miss America. In this case, contestants would be judged not only on their live presentation, but on photos taken while they model. The judges would view the digital photos as well as the live presentation, so this becomes a "photogenic" competition as well. The audience would see the digital photos when the judges do, so they can make their own evaluations. After swimsuit, 3 finalists would be eliminated, and identified as 10th, 9th and 8th place. This elimination would be calculated as approximately 42% talent, 29% evening wear and 29% swimsuit. The 3 eliminated contestants would receive "Sapphire" scholarships - again, more than the Ruby and Emerald awarded to already eliminated semi-finalists.

There would be 7 finalists remaining after swimsuit. Each of these 7 would participate in the 4th and final round of competition, on-stage interview. Notice it says "interview" not "question." A journalist or former Miss A would be given the job of conducting a 2-1/2 minute interview with each of the top 7. About 3/4 of the interview would be devoted to getting to know the contestant, based on info from her resumé. The remaining 45 seconds or so would be a current event question, preferably of the same type as the prelim on-stage questions - items of concern to young college women, not world crises that are more suited for the President or Secretary of State. (Personally, I think it's great, in a way, that the pageant forces contestants to learn about current events, but really, when was the last time any of you saw a Miss America being questioned about the Middle East - there's always a crisis there - or solving the problems in our messed-up political system or the economy. If they really knew the answers to those kinds of issues, then the prize shouldn't be a scholarship, it should be a position in the President's Cabinet! Seriously!)

Now the person conducting the interviews would have been given all the contestant resumés and platform statements ahead of time, to prepare the more personal questions they wanted to ask. The current events questions would be on a "Wheel of Fortune" spinning wheel or a dartboard, and the contestants would spin the wheel or throw the dart, and whatever question was closest would be the one they get - so it doesn't look fixed for anyone. Plus it might lend itself to funny moments (say a girl can't hit the dartboard to save her life.) Also, each of the final 7 would be assigned a number based on the random order in which they were called, and the questioner would draw numbers out of a fishbowl to determine the order in which the final 7 were interviewed. The on-stage interview would count for 30% of the final night score. I would borrow the old USA sound-proof booth and have the girls called out of there one at a time. They leave the stage after their interview. The on-stage interview is a chance for the audience to get to know more about each finalist, and an opportunity for the contestants to express their individuality.

So at this point (are you still awake?), there is one final elimination based on all 4 competitions - 30% interview, 30% talent, 20% swimsuit, 20% evening wear.) 5 finalists are announced as the 20XX Court Of Honor, and 2 are awarded "Diamond" scholarships, more than the other semifinalists but less than the top 5. They would be identified as 7th and 6th place.

With the final 5, the competition scores are now eliminated and the "composite attribute" scores assigned after prelims come into play. They account for 50% of the final results. The other 50% is based on the final ballot the judges now fill out. The big difference with the current final ballot is that it isn's so heavily waited to the winner ( e.g., 10 pts for 1st, 5 for 2nd, then 3, 2, 1. Rather it would go back to the traditional ballot weighting - 10 pts for 1st, 8 pts for 2nd, 6 pts for 3rd, 4 pts for 4th and 2pts for 5th. I think this weighting makes it less likely that a judge can bury "their choice's" closest rival.)

So while the judges are balloting additional non-finalist talent winners are announced (the ones who actually performed during the talent competition would have been announced at that point) with brief clips of their talent, along with non-finalist interview winners, and overall winners in every competition.

Finally the four runners-up and the winner are announced.

I read a lot of reviews on the Olay system and I was in ULTA the other day and saw it and purchased it. Figuring I would try it out. I had a ton of points so it ended up costing me $19 instead of $49 I think. Has anyone else used this? So far, I'm two weeks in and I really like the results better than I had with my Clarins.

Subject: How To Effectively Complain About An MAO Issue On Any Level


Author:
FYI:
[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 14:20:11 10/24/14 Fri

Speaking from experience I want to share with you that in order to stand any chance whatsoever of any complaint being given any consideration by the MAO national office the following tedious process MUST be adhered to - once you read this you'll understand why only very committed people ever bother to carry through. For better or worse for the most part we will always choose what is easiest for us rather than what is best for someone else.

#1 All initial letters of complaint must be sent directly to the specific person involved. This may not be done anonymously. The letter should contain only the facts (not feelings or hunches) that you are aware of and why you believe an explanation is in order. Also include a requested time period for a response (14-21 days is appropriate.) This letter should be mailed with signature receipt required.

#2 Note cc: on this letter and send to the appropriate local ED, state ED and Marc. All these copies should also be sent with signature receipts required.

#3 When the original recipient responds the issue may be resolved at that point. If not (or if they do not respond) then a letter similar to the 1st letter should be sent to the local ED (or next person up the ladder) again requesting a time frame for response with copies sent to original person, the state ED and Marc. Enclose a copy of the response if you received one or the signature card if you did not & mail all requiring signature receipt.

#4 When the next recipient responds the issue may be resolved at that point. If not (or if they do not respond) then a letter similar to the 1st & 2nd letter should be sent to the State ED (or next person up the ladder) again requesting a time frame for response with copies sent to original person, the state ED and Marc. Enclose a copy of the response if you received one or the signature card if you did not & mail all requiring signature receipt.

#5 When the next recipient responds the issue may be resolved at that point. If not (or if they do not respond) then a letter similar to the 1st, 2nd & 3rd letter should be sent to the Marc again requesting a time frame for response with copies sent to original person, the local ED and state ED. Enclose a copy of the response if you received one or the signature card if you did not & mail all requiring signature receipt.

#6 If the issue is not yet resolved to your satisfaction after all those steps have been taken, copies of everything you have gathered - your letters, responses, signature receipts should be copied & sent as many MAO Board members (including Sam) as you choose with a cover letter requesting that the non-action on the issue be discussed at the next board meeting. Again these all should be sent with signature receipt required.

#7 is optional. If after contacting board members the issue is still not resolved this may be the time to go "public" with all the information you have gathered (or lack there of) by mailing similar packets as sent to the BOD to local, state and national sponsors asking them to take note & question the issue themselves. If the MAO won't pay attention to you, they may pay attention to the money.

At this point you have done all that you can through the legitimate chain of command and whether you effected a change or not you can be proud of doing the right thing. Your choices then become to resign yourself to the fact that you volunteer or compete in a program that is less than perfect or resign from every aspect of a program you can no longer in good conscience be part of.

According to a letter from the America Organization, it is currently accepting proposals from interested parties to operate the Miss New Mexico State Organization. A request for proposal has been issued and the deadline for consideration is Friday, Jan. 16. The letter is signed by Marc Angeli, vice president, field operations.

The Miss America Organization declined to renew the contract of Miss New Mexico Executive Director Carol Henry and the rest of the previous state board. Organization officials declined to state their reasons for removing the board. Henry has been part of the New Mexico franchise since at least 2006.

The Miss New Mexico state license will be awarded based on attention to detail, business acumen, vision and actionable plans for the state that are requested in the attached RFP, the letter says. The RFP process is a search by the Miss America Organization for the best leadership and all proposals are reviewed and kept confidential.

According to the RFP, the Miss America Organization, a not-for-profit, “provides personal and professional opportunities for young women to promote their voices in culture, politics and the community.

“It provides a forum for today’s young women to express their viewpoints and showcase their talents on the local, state and national levels. Most of the participants in the Miss America program have either earned, or are in the process of earning undergraduate and postgraduate degrees and they utilize Miss America scholarships to help further their education.”

So I've been competing for a few years now and every time I compete my talent (singing) is awful. I'm great off-stage and in other venues but when it comes time for competition the nerves get the better of me.

Typically I've been singing broadway styles songs, a lot of Les Mis and Wicked, it's worth mentioning that I primarily sing in head voice as I have a much more manageable range in head than chest.

I'm looking for
a) either a new talent
b) ideas for songs that might go over a little better
c) or ways to overcome this stage fright

Judges critiques always compliment my confidence in other phases of competition, this is just really my downfall.

Thank you for any help!

Is there a maximum amount of crowns that can be given out for a single local? (Have heard they can only crown 3)
Is there a minimum number of contestants for each crown? (Have heard 4 contestants is the minimum to crown, so if there are 3 crowns do they require 12 contestants). And if they have 12 registered but some have to drop out due to winning another local/ illness/ whatever can they still crown 3?
Does the national MAO office have a standard set of rules for all locals, (including the above questions about number of crowns, contestants, etc.)?
Several years ago some states were catering to Festivals that crowned Festival Queens to be state locals in order to add numbers to state competition. Is this still the norm, and do they still have to have a swimsuit competition in order to qualify for state completion?
Are the local and state ballots the exact same as the national ballots, in other words are the talent, gown, ss, interview, awarded the same point system on all levels of local-state-national.?
If the locals are not totally governed by the MAO national office, are they totally governed by the state organization, and the same with states are they totally governed by the MAO.?
Thank you for any assistance.

Our beloved Miss America, Mary Ann Mobley, passed away quietly this morning, surrounded by her loved ones. Mary Ann will always be remembered for her beauty, grace, her wonderful personality and her giving heart that touched so many.

On September 6, 1958, Mary Ann made history in Atlantic City as she was crowned the first Miss America from Mississippi. Her talent performance was "Un Bel Di" by Puccini and as she walked that famed runway, she immediately captured the hearts of America.

Following her year of service as Miss America, Mary Ann made her Broadway debut in the musical, Nowhere To Go But Up. It proved to be a great success for the launch of her theatrical career; however it was a co-staring role with Hugh O'Brien and Betty Grable in a production of Guys and Dolls that opened the door for her first motion picture contract. She starred opposite another Mississippian, Elvis Presley, in Girl Happy and Harum Scarum at MGM. During that time, she was nominated by the American Cinema Editors for "Best Performance by an Actress in a U.S. Film Debut". The United Theater Owners of America named her one of the "Top Ten Stars of Tomorrow". The Motion Picture Herald Fame Award recognized her as one of the "Box Office Stars of Tomorrow" and the Hollywood Foreign Press presented her with a Golden Globe Award as the "International Female Star of Tomorrow."

Mary Ann also appeared on many hit television series including, Diff'rent Strokes and Falcon Crest. She was also a guest star in more than one hundred comedy and dramatic television series. One of her most treasured roles was in the American television premiere of Ingmar Bergman's The Lie with George Segal. Mary Ann returned many times to the Miss America stage and co-hosted the Miss America 1989 telecast with her husband Gary Collins.

She became a filmmaker, producing documentaries in third-world countries including Cambodia, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Somalia, Kenya, Zimbabwe and the Sudan where she worked on documentaries on the plight of millions of children who are helpless victims of war and deprivation. She was a part of the first American TV film team to enter communist Cambodia. "The trip was one of the most rewarding and challenging experiences of my life" she once stated. She recently filmed Children Running Out Of Time on the work of the medical personnel in these countries. While living in Kenya during the filming of the TV series Born Free, she saw first-hand the devastation and felt a personal commitment to helping the underprivileged of the poor nations of the world.

Mary Ann served with the March of Dimes for the past twenty-five years and also served as the National Chairman of the Mother's March Against Birth Defects and was a board member of The National Crohn's and Colitis Foundation, and The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. By Presidential appointment she was named to the National Council on Disability. Mary Ann was a member of SHARE, Inc., a Los Angeles-based women's organization supporting the Exceptional Children's Foundation for the Mentally Retarded. In Mississippi, she raised funds for the Willowood Foundation which provides homes for young adults with mental and physical learning disabilities. One of the homes is called the Mary Ann Mobley/Gary Collins Group Home. She was most proud of The Mary Ann Mobley Pediatric Wing at the Rankin General Hospital in her hometown of Brandon.

Sam Haskell, Chairman of the Board and CEO of the Miss America Organization has described his 40 year friendship with Mary Ann as one that he truly cherishes.

"When I was a little boy growing up in Mississippi, there were two Mississippi stars who I idolized...one was Elvis Presley and the other was Mississippi's first Miss America Mary Ann Mobley! She was at the hospital when my children were born. She performed in many of my charitable concerts to raise money in Mississippi for needed educational funds as well as Hurricane Katrina victims. We shared a love for our Alma Mater Ole Miss, and we shared many mutual friends in our beloved home state of Mississippi. She challenged me, she loved me, and she made me laugh! I shall miss her!" he stated.

The Miss America Organization extends its heartfelt sympathies to Mary Ann's daughter, Clancy Collins-White - an executive at Warner Bros. Television in Los Angeles, and her extended family during this time of sorrow. We will keep our Miss America Mary Ann Mobley alive in our hearts, and we will keep her family in our thoughts and our prayers.

Before Miss America, there was so much discussion on where to stay during the pageant - hotel rooms, condo, renting houses, etc. Who knows what hotels will be available next year...but, where did everyone stay this year and would you stay there again.

If she does get a replica is it exactly the same or is it slightly different like the Miss Universe, USA, and Teen crown replica's?
