Pageants are often won, or loss, during the interview phase. This is your first impression upon the judges, and can very well determine if they feel you are a fit for the job without ever needing to see you compete on stage. The weight of the interview competition does vary between pageant systems, so make sure you check the paperwork to know if all categories of competition are equally scored, or not. But regardless of the weight of the interview portion, there is no coming
Today concludes TCM's "How to Pick a Pageant System" with the topics of "Scores vs Comments." It's hard to know what to adjust so that you can improve without SOME sort of direction.

We are almost there! Today we talk about the Judges Panel and understanding how a panel should be used to select the best representative among a group of winners! We also look at a variety of judges-type and how they could help, or hurt, a contestant. The most important thing to understand, however, is that beauty will always be in the eyes of the beholder, and in competition, the outcome is unpredictable.

"There she is ... Miss America!" Well last night, Miss North Dakota won the Miss America crown. What an honor! Geez! Just to make it to the super bowl of pageants - just wow! But this epic night made me continue to reflect on our TCM summer season and how much pageantry has changed from when I was younger to now. From the beginning of Miss America in 1921, pageants began as a bathing beauty contest on a pier in Atlantic City. That's how the winner was selected - on beauty, wi
The last couple of weeks have been full of unsettling times, uncertainty, and stress. We in the south have been dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, and now we have turned our attention to Hurricane Irma, who will be hitting Florida soon. TCM had four families majorly affected by Harvey. Homes flooded with at least 4 feet of water, vehicles lost due to flooding, and everything inside the homes, gone.
