Gazini’s journey begins in Dapitan City in the Philippines. In sixth grade her family moved to Cebu where she spent most of her life.

In 2015, she represented Sinulog Festival in Cebu and finished as the second runner-up and the following year she was crowned Miss Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation INC.

Corrin Stellakis: Earth USA, Teen USA, Work Ethic

Podcast cover
Read more

Corrin Stellakis grew up in a very small town called Bridgeport on a family owned horse farm. If you think having pets teaches children about responsibility at a young age, you can multiply that amount by 10 when it comes to taking care of animals on a farm.

She grew up mucking stalls, cleaning water buckets, and riding horses daily. Her and her mother began an after-school horse program called “A Horse of Course”. There were lessons and programs for kids available, and Corrin loved sharing her passion for horses to other young souls. At the age of 12 she joined an interscholastic equestrian team and was able to compete all over the United States. 

Corrin also had a very unique experience when it came to siblings since her family was involved in a foster care program for about four years. Corrin Stellakis had two biological brothers and about 17 foster brothers and sisters growing up that her family opened up their home for. This was a great learning experience due to the responsibility it taught her and helped her grow up quickly through changing diapers to helping kids on heart monitors.

She attended Chittenango Highschool where she played varsity volleyball. Something she learned through playing a team-based sport was how to win together, and how to lose together. Corrin also always felt that her team was winners because of the character they showed on the court. They would leave their blood, sweat, and tears just to ensure they gave it their all. 

High school was a pivotal moment in Corrin’s pageant career as well. Her school was home of L Frank Baum, the author of the ‘Wonderful Wizard of Oz’. In 2012, Corrin won the Miss Jr. Oz title, which was enough experience in itself to propel her to compete at Miss New York Teen USA 2014.

Amanda Moreno Young: Persistence Pays

Podcast cover
Read more

Amanda Moreno has been in the pageant industry for over 19 years. She has made her way around the block through competing in pageant competitions and now she is using her years of experience to coach young princesses on how to become pageant queens.

Some of her own crowning accomplishments include winning National All-American Miss 2011-2012 and Miss International 2016. Understandably she has the perfect personal insight in these, and many other systems in the United States, to help women win these titles too. Some of these women include Ava Hill Miss International 2019 and Ashlee Nelson National American Miss 2019-2020.

Amanda was born and raised in Atlanta Georgia, which is known for having a variety of pageants for girls of all ages. Growing up, Amanda described herself as being a tomboy. She loved playing soccer, softball and many sports. Her Colombian family roots instilled a love for soccer especially when she was young. 

Although she was a tomboy on the outside, her heart was filled with princess-like dreams. This probably stemmed from her family’s annual trips to Walt Disney ever since she was three years old. Christmas time was one of the best for the Moreno family since they were able to spend time in the most magical place in the world. Amanda’s love of Walt Disney inspired her to name her dog Walt Ray Moreno!

One of the most characteristic things about Amanda when you see her is her bright and joyful smile. Unfortunately, there were people who took her smile away at a young age. She was bullied a lot when she was younger about her weight, her hair, and everything else a young girl should not have to be concerned about. This led her to having very low self esteem, and eventually developing an eating disorder for three years. 

The pain she experienced at this time would be the catalyst to energize her to empower thousands of young women around the world to develop the skills to not face the same hardships she did. She just didn’t know this yet. 

To learn more about Amanda Moreno listen to this week’s podcast.

Sarah Rose Summers: National American Miss, Miss Teen USA, Miss USA

Podcast cover
Read more

Sarah Rose Summers is a Nebraskan beauty who has won the state titles of Miss Nebraska Teen USA and Miss Nebraska USA as well as the national title of National American Miss. But let’s be real, we all know her best for being the very first woman from Nebraska to win the title of Miss USA in 2018.

Her work as a Child Life Specialist helps her to be compassionate and understanding to people she meets both inside and outside of work. With her unique and caring perspective, she has been able to travel across the United States inspiring many.

Sarah Rose was born in Omaha, Nebraska and grew up in Papillion. Omaha doesn’t exactly scream ‘Miss USA’ pageant community, but it did breed a great support system for Sarah Rose to grow up in. However, when you think about it, we’ve had a Miss America in Teresa Scanlan and a Miss USA from Nebraska in the last decade, which not many states can say.

Sarah grew up watching her mom try all of the diets, but then she joined a program where she learned to eat nutritious foods in healthy portions. She found a program that worked for her and lost 75 lbs. While Sarah was able to see her mom find success, this still impacted her mindset as a young girl when it came to eating and training when she joined the pageant world. 

Sarah Rose is extremely passionate about encouraging others to have a healthy relationship with food and fitness. Throughout her post-secondary studies she was working part-time as a pilates instructor and at Lululemon Athletica.

Black Lives Matter & Pageantry

Podcast cover
Read more

No matter where you are in the world, you have heard about the Black Lives Matter movement reaching new heights in the United States. This is due to a largely politicized case of a man named George Floyd being killed at the hands of the police during an arrest on video. This shed a light on continued challenges with police brutality and the black community. 

You might be thinking, “why is Pageant Planet covering this, they should stick to pageants”. 

Though, this issue has started in America, where we are based, the ripple effect has been felt globally. Depending on your pageant you could be asked about this in pageant interview, so this will help. Additionally, our goal is to serve the black women who compete in an overwhelmingly white industry, white contestants who want to become better allies and directors who may have some blind spots. 

To help with the conversation we have invited former Miss International and mental health counselor, Elise Banks.

Podcast cover
Read more

Vanessa Lachey was born in Angeles City, Pampanga, Philippines almost 40 years ago. She has an older brother, who is adopted.

Vanessa’s father was in the Air Force which meant they did not settle permanently into the places they travelled to. Vanessa calls her and her brother ‘Air Force brats’, which is a term used for military kids who travel constantly. Within her first nine years of schooling, Vanessa attended eight different schools. 

After over 10 years of military service, her family settled down in Charleston, South Carolina. Here, Vanessa was able to have a more stable school life. She was able to join cheerleading, compete in pageants and could enjoy living in one place. She went on to win the Miss Teen USA 

After her success in pageantry, she became a fashion-model for brands like BONGO Jeans and Flirt! Cosmetics. She appeared on magazine covers for SHAPE, Lucky and Maxim. Maxim also ranked Vanessa in its annual Hot 100 Issue several years in a row, ranking at #15 in 2006.

It was around this time that Vanessa also began her career on television, working on MTV and Entertainment Tonight. There is no doubt that her success in pageantry and in modeling gave her a great resume to become a successful TV actress, correspondent and host. 

While hosting MTVs Total Request Live, Vanessa interviewed a very famous Hollywood couple at the time, Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson, regarding their relationship and show ‘Newlyweds’. Over the years, Vanessa and Nick would see each other through the media, but remained as acquaintances. Nick was very well known from his days as the front man in the boy band 98 Degrees
