Rank #2: 5 Do’s and Don’ts of Being a Favorite to Win
We have done so many podcasts about being the contestant who is trying to mentally prepare to overcome the stigma of the runner up or the high performing transfer of another system.
But, today we are saying... first runner up, or perpetual top 5 finisher... we see you and are here for you.
It is a huge mental conundrum to be able to finish so close and then do it all again. What do you keep the same, what do you change, was it a fluke, is it your time?!
So we have put together five of our favorite dos and don’ts if you are coming off a hot pageant season and are looking for your crown.
Listen in as Jesse & Steven discuss the 5 dos and don’ts of being a favorite to win.

Rank #12: Overdone Pageant Trends
It’s no secret that many of our listeners and followers are novices in the industry. Sometimes newer contestants will see or hear a trend, latch onto it and replicate it - not realizing when they do it, it will be the millionth time a judge will have seen it.
So, today, we are going to be discussing some overdone trends we have seen over the past few years and how to avoid them.
I think it is important to note that there are exceptions to every single one of these where someone has been successful with them. It even may be the right thing for YOU, but we want to make you aware, and then the decision is up to you.
We’ve separated these into two sections - the appearance section, what you wear and how you look - and the interview section, common phrases. We will also provide you with alternatives!
This week's promotional item is our new course titled, Pageant Dictionary. This course covers common phrases in pageantry that newbies or veterans may not be aware of. How many do you know?
