A Day at the Beauty Pageant
you ever wondered what it is like to compete in a beauty pageant? I have!
asked one of the girls I sponsored (actually I asked her mother) whether they would give me the run down on
what a typical day is like (If there is such a thing as typical).
Meet Abriel! She is the reigning 2008/2009 little Miss North
Carolina Tarheel Queen.
Abriel's Mom provided some great photos taken during
the pageant - these are the outfits Abriel wore for each category competition -
and there are a lot! I asked Miss Abriel some questions - via her mother -
my first interview! Here are the questions and answers:
Interview with Abriel:
- How long does a pageant like this usually last?
Friday evening, Saturday (all day) and Sunday morning for crowning
- When does your day start when you are at a pageant?
We have to get up around 5:00 AM so Mommy can get my hair rolled and I
can eat breakfast and get my hair and makeup done.
- How many different outfits do you wear?
In this pageant I had to wear 9 different outfits!
- Do you need a different hair-do for each outfit?
No you don't have to but Miss Debbie (my hair dresser) says it makes you
stand out to the judges to have a different look each time.
- How do they decide who the winner is?
The one who gets the most points for smiling big, modeling good (well)
and looking at the judges and smiling at them.
- Is there an overall winner - like in Miss America?
Yes - it is the girl with the highest combined score from all the
categories added together and that winner is the Majestic or Supreme winner.
- What do you like the most about competing in a pageant?
Playing with my pageant friends and getting to stay in a hotel and
sometimes we get cool prizes.
- What do you like the the least?
I don't like to get up early and I don't like getting my hair done.
- What advice would you give to a girl who wants to compete in a pageant?
Smile big on stage, look at the judges faces make sure you stand with
pretty feet and hands and have fun playing with your friends. Mommy tells me
you can't win them all and you can't lose them all - Everyone has their day.
Do your best and have fun!
