I absolutely love listening to this podcast as a super pageant fan and contestant. I have learned so much without getting bored and sometimes wish they were longer! It’s great to see how pageants have really changed so many women’s lives. Whenever I have long commutes, I’ll even re-listen to episodes because they keep me awake on the road. I recommend any pageant girl to listen!

We all sat down over the weekend to chat about taking over the crown from Cheslie Kryst, how they make full time careers modeling and even how they handle their family dynamic.

Both were Jovani it girls and cover girls for the Jovani Prom and Red Carpet Line catalog. Younger Sister Courtney was in the music video “One Number Away” for Country Music Singer Luke Combs and older sis Laura was the 2017 Sideline Attraction cheerleader for All pro cheer magazine.

These were also both NBA dancers. Dancing for the Charlotte Hornets Honeybees for a combined 5 years.

And lastly, if you follow either of them on social media, you’ll know that both have been Monster Energy Girls for the past 2 ½ years making appearances in Victory Lane for all of the biggest Nascar Races, the Winter and Summer X-Games and Supercross.

Some great laughs and advice from the Little sisters on todays episode.

I absolutely love listening to this podcast as a super pageant fan and contestant. I have learned so much without getting bored and sometimes wish they were longer! It’s great to see how pageants have really changed so many women’s lives. Whenever I have long commutes, I’ll even re-listen to episodes because they keep me awake on the road. I recommend any pageant girl to listen!
