How to speak when asked a question in a beauty pageant contest

 pageant questions


How to speak when asked a question in a beauty pagent contest


If you are asked a question in a pageant, whether it's an on-stage interview, one-on-one interview or panel interview, start by repeating the questionback to whomever asked you, then begin to give your answer. The less "umms" and "uhs" you use the better.

Speak slow and clear and always think before you say anything. If you don't know the answer to something, just say "I don't know".

However, let me caution you, if you do say that you don't know, always follow it up with, "I'll be sure to research the answer to find out, so next time I'll know".

Never leave the interview or judges hanging with "I don't know".

Remember to relax, take a deep breath and think before speaking.


How to model in a pageant

How to model in a pageant


This is one of my favorite categories in pageants! I love the runway and modeling!!

Some pageant systems have modeling categories. This category allows you to wear whatever you choose and sometimes pick your own music and modelon stage like a fashion model. It's a fun category and it helps to bring out the contestant's personality.

When modeling, have fun and walk fast like you are on a catwalk taking long strides in your steps (think Victoria Secret Fashion Show or Project Runway).

In this category, you don't even have to smile!! Many models in NYC, LA and Paris don't smile on the runway. They look serious and they walk with a sassy attitude.

That's how you might want to walk when you are modeling in this category in a pageant.

However you walk, smiling or not, sassy or not, just have fun! :-)


How to walk and pose like a beauty queen

 pageant questions


How to walk and pose like a beauty queen


Walking and posing like a beauty queen in a pageant can definitely allow you to stand out and can help you win.

However, in order to master the beauty queen walk and pose, you might need a coach. Especially, if you're not used to walking in heels, not to mention posing in them!

I would suggest either getting a coach or using Google and search for "how to walk in heels" videos and "how to pose in heels" videos.

I'm actually working on recording these videos as well and posting them on my YouTube Channel because I get asked this a lot.

Learning these 2 things will have you walking and posing like a beauty queen in no time!!


How to win your local pageant

 pageant questions


How to win your local pageant


If you want to win your local pageant, you should definitely talk with the local director and ask the pertinent questions such as,what are you being scored on, what time should you be there, how many judges are there, how many contestants are in your category (they may or may nottell you this one, but ask anyways).

Ask what the next steps are or levels of competition after the local level (this shows drive and determination).

As always, practice, practice and practice some more.

In case you missed it, here are a few things you should practice everyday as soon as possible:

  • Your Walk
  • Your Introduction (if required)
  • Your Turns or Pivots
  • Your Smile
  • Your Poise/Posture
  • Your Stance

How do you need to look to enter a beauty pageant

 pageant questions


How do you need to look to enter a beauty pageant


Ok, this is one of the most popular questions I get asked! You do not have to look a certain way to compete in a beauty pageant. You don't evenhave to be a certain height, unless that's a requirement of the pageant system.

However, it's very, very rare that a pageant will have height requirements.

Be yourself, don't try to look a certain way to enter into a pageant. You can be skinny, fat, medium, plump, thick, brown, white, light, blue, purple,dark, orange or whatever!

It doesn't matter how you look!

Pageants should help you to feel better about yourself, not make you feel worse and question your looks.

How to write an introduction for a pageant

 pageant questions


How to write an introduction for a pageant


In order to come up with a really good introduction for a pageant, you should get some notebook paper and write down at least 5 or 6 things about yourself, suchas what you like to do, places you like to go or where you've been, what you want to be when you grow up, what kind of sports you play or grades you get in school.

Start with listing those things on paper, then write a small paragraph using about 3-4 of the most important things (no more than 3 sentences and not longerthan 20-30 seconds long).

It doesn't have to rhyme, although that would make it more interesting!!!

Check with your pageant organization on the length it should be.

How to win a beauty pageant audition

 pageant questions


How to win a beauty pageant audition


In order to win a beauty pageant audition, first you need to know what's expected.

Call or email the pageant audition director and ask them for advice on what to wear and what are the categories you have to audition in.

That should help you first.

Second, begin practicing your walk, poise/posture, stance, smile, introduction and turns/pivots.

How to stand out at a Boy beauty pageant

 pageant questions


How to stand out at a Boy beauty pageant


If you are a boy entering in a pageant, or parents if you are entering your boy into a pageant (particularly an "all boy pageant") help him to standout by putting him on a suit, a tux or something really dressy and nice.

A solid color suit with a bright tie or bow-tie is a great way for boys to stand out!

Of course smiling and having lots of charm from toddler boys always helps as well! :-)

How to smile in a beauty pageant

 pageant questions


How to smile in a beauty pageant


Smiling in a beauty pageant is one of the key's to your pageant success. Your smile should be natural, not fake.

It should show how excited you are to be there. Try really hard not to give a "half" smile, the judges will wonder if you really want to win or even be there.

Smile showing all your teeth or gums if you have a baby or small child who may have just lost a few teeth (smile) :-)

Remember, act like you just won a million dollars! Give a million dollar smile.


How to practice for a beauty pageant

 pageant questions


How to practice for a beauty pageant


If you know early that you want to do a beauty pageant, you should begin practicing immediately.

Here are a few things you should practice:

  • Your Walk
  • Your Introduction (if required)
  • Your Turns or Pivots
  • Your Smile
  • Your Poise/Posture
  • Your Stance

Remember, don't wait until the last minute to practice. The old saying "practice makes perfect" is very true!

How to get ready for first time beauty contest auditions

 pageant questions


How to get ready for first time beauty contest auditions


When trying to get ready for your first beauty contest audition, you should find out everything you can about the pageant system, search on Google, Youtube, Facebook, and Pinterest.

Having knowledge about the pageant system before you enter can help you understand more about the Director, more about the system itself (such as how often the pageant is held, what categories are involved in the competition, the cost, the prizes, the requirements, the rules, etc.)

Perhaps even ask friends or family members who may have already competed in the pageant.

If you have specific questions, such as what's expected of you, call the Pageant Director directly to get your questions answered.

This is crucial, you don't want to not know something, just because you are afraid to ask.

Remember each pageant audition is different.

How do you present yourself in a beauty audition?

How do you present yourself in a beauty audition


When attending a beauty pageant audition, present yourself in a happy, friendly and humble manner.

Try not to be scared or really shy. Have fun and be yourself.

Most importantly try to relax.

How confident should I be to win a pageant

 pageant questions


How confident should I be to win a pageant


You don't have to be super confident to win a pageant, but you should be a little confident. The big thing about most pageants is, if you struggle with confidence that's sometimes ok, because the pageant you are in may help to build your confidence. It takes more than just confidence to win a pageant.

However, if you are very confident, that can only help you, if you have everything else the judges are looking for.

 pageant questions


How am I suppose to walk on a stage when entering a beauty peagent


When entering a beauty pageant, you should walk with a slow-to-moderate pace in front of the judges. Stop and turn all the way around so the judges can see your dress/gown.

Don't walk too fast, or the judges may not get to see you fully and judge you appropriately.


How to give an introduction in a beauty pageant

 pageant questions


How to give an introduction in a beauty pageant


Beauty Pageant introductions are usually done at the beginning of the pageant. Some pageants systems have their own formatted introductions that you have to say by filling in your personal information, such as

  • Name
  • Age
  • Grade
  • State/Country/Hometown
  • Contestant Number
Other pageant systems allow you to make up your own introduction, you can use what I have above and add an interesting fact about yourself.

How do pageant judges like your hair to be


All pageant judges are different. Some like your hair to be pinned up, others like your hair to be down, some like spiral curls, others like fancy pony-tails, some like french rolls, others like super big hair, some like short hair, etc., etc.

When choosing a hairstyle for your hair, follow these guidelines

Is it best to walk straight to the judges or to the audience in a pageant?

 pageant questions


Is it best to walk straight to the judges or to the audience in a pageant?


Well, usually you're on a stage or some type of platform, so you wouldn't walk directly to the judges or directly to the audience. You would just walk in front of both the judges and the audience, but just at a far distance.

Always stop in front of whomever you are walking in front of, and always turn around. However, I must say, never walk past the judges to get to the audience.

The judges are the most important!

How to Become a Pageant Interview Pro

 pageant questions


How to become a pageant interview pro


You can become a pageant interview pro by getting as many practice interview questions as you can and then answering them. You should also do mock interviews with friends or family. You can also ask pageant friends for help or professionals in the pageant industry that you may already know. They can give you some tips and advice that will help you on your way. The more serious you take the pageant interview and the more you study and prepare, the sooner you will become a pro.
