Rank #3: How to Win Over the Judges in a Pageant
I’m very excited about today’s show. We have on the phone the first ever Ms World 2015, Laura Hunter. What do you believe set you apart from the other contestants in the eyes of the judges? How did you personally connect with the judges?
How did you prepare yourself to do so? How did you strengthen your communication skills to succeed in the panel style interview? Does it help to have a personal platform you are passionate about? How have you been able to promote the American Lung Association as Ms. World? How did you mentally prepare yourself for the fitness competition? Did you work with a personal trainer? If so, who? What inspired you to chose your evening gown?
What type of style does the Ms. World organization seem to like?
Who designed your gown? How did you choose your Fashion Wear wardrobe? What spot in the line up did you choose to place yourself and what influenced you to select that specific position? What is one item under $20 that you feel is a must have at any pageant? What is your best piece of advice you want to give to all the ladies out there hoping to wear the crown? Who should check out your system? (ms. contestants, ages, marital status, etc.)

Rank #17: 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?
