Subject: In local pageants I know it's common to have other local directors I'm curious what rules go along with that? We had a pageant where a girl won and a local director that has coached her over the last year was a judge. I don't see how that can be allowed. I also thought local directors couldn't be coaches. Maybe I misunderstood rules.

I'm hoping to get some help from people who know...What are people doing??? I just went on the Miss America website to purchase tickets, and the only ones being offered are balcony and the very back of Convention Hall.(This happened when I went to the pageant in Las Vegas in 2007...ended up almost on the front row after much work...) How can I arrange to get better seats? I arrive in AC, NJ on Saturday, Sept. 13th. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Don't know if this has been discussed, but The Revel is closing in early September. I had bought a room online a few months ago and today, I received an email that the hotel will be closing and my reservation will be fully refunded. If others have a booking there, please check for a refund.

ALASKA. I went into this not expecting anything major because it's AK and while they send some decent girls, I've never been particularly blown away by them. But I have to say I loved her video.

I chuckled when she went from fitness to "compassion" because it sounded so hokey, but then the shot with her parents is what got me. How hilarious! And I LOVE that she kept that in there when most girls probably would have edited it out.

I really like this girl. I'm not going to get my hopes up because I fear she won't have the training she needs to play at this level since most coaches don't go to AK, but I would love it if this girl could make waves in Atlantic City!

Good luck, Miss Alaska! I'm rooting for you from New England!

P.S. I also really enjoyed Miss Nevada and have to say that she could be another Teresa Scanlan. She sounded much more mature and articulate than her age would have you believe. I really wish she had won her state title a little older, but good luck to her too. I wouldn't mind seeing her with the crown on her head at the end of the night.

Subject: What is your one beauty, makeup, fashion tip for a reigning state queen (or those who aspire to be)? Not speaking of naming any specific contestants here. Just something that is a neat pageant "tip" that perhaps not everyone knows or thinks about. Along the lines of changing the elastic in the crown to match your hair color and using silver clippies. Here's one: ladies, wax EVERYTHING. We had a state queen a few years ago pose for very up close pics of her arm and wrist for a jewelry sponsor. The queen's arm was so hairy, it took a lot of photoshop to make her arm look like it belonged on a lady. Not joking.

It disturbs me that for an organization that constantly highlights how it is the largest scholarship organization in the world and how talent makes it unique, the panel has no one from the world of education and no one that has a background in singing, dancing or instrumentals.

The panel is fine. It must be very hard to find people who want to give up a week of their time, so it makes sense that we have three repeats (Cherry, Ireland and Johnson) and a former. I just wish that the powers that be would truly work to find someone in education, the business world and non-profit to be a national judge.

In my opinion, no one watches the pageant for the judges. This group will provide us not one new viewer.

Subject: I recently purchased a picture of Ruth Malcmson (Miss America 1924) on Ebay. In the background of the photo is the "golden mermaid" statue. For the past several months I have been researching the history of the statue and have recently discovered that the original golden mermaid is still in existance but in a "private" collection. Can anyone confirm this? If this is the case - why wouldn't the pageant use the piece or put it on display the week of the pageant for all to enjoy? After all, it is a significant piece of history and the cornerstone piece of the pageant.
