My daughter won first runner up two years in a row. Last year we were fine with it because it was our first, but this year not so much. The girl who won did a terrible introduction but still won. It would've been fine if the 2nd runner up won because she did just as...

I see there are a lot of complaints on here saying it is the girls that spend the most that win. That is NOT true in my experience. My daughter had never participated in a pageant let alone have modeling or acting experience and we never met any staff other than at the...

Another story of how the girls with the most expensive gowns and from a life of advantage prosper. It really isn't about the girl....its about the money. A gorgeous 8x10 photo, taken by a family member and not photo shopped is NEVER going to win against the girl that...

I agree with this statement. I witnessed this yesterday July 16, 2017. In the finale, the MC would give some girls longer to walk by saying their achievements slower and s...

National American Miss - WASTE OF MONEY

This is the second year my daughter has done this pageant. It's VERY obvious who the top 5 will be and can actually say the names with the emcee at the same time, yes it's that obvious. For ANYONE who gets the letter for your daughter, ITS TRASH!!! Those who spend the most money on top of all the money for everything else : hotel, food, travel expenses, dresses, etc. are the ones who win.

My family is in a train wreck right now and i cant afford to do this pageant right now , but the national American Miss wont refund my money back ! Its a fraud! They won't let you have your money back even if your not going to the pageant.

Scamming parents for money. Its all about the money. You pay for everything possible and its way overpriced. Owner was rude and wouldn't get off the phone to acknowledge my daughter. My daughter won 3 trophies but basically you pay your way to win. Pathetic.

Couldn't disagree more- NAM has taught my daughter valuable skills. Since participating she has become increasingly more active in our community and a fantastic public speaker. We receive comments on a regular basis about her speaking. They tell you every required fee...

After scores are tabulated and the judges know who their top 5 are (4th runner up, 3rd runner up, 2nd runner up, 1st runner up & Queen) they allow the judges to reorder the top finalist, so if a girl earned top scores she may not be Queen, could walk out with nothing...

@NAM MOM what is misguided? Multiple tie for same scores? That doesn't seem likely. What is your source for this information? Do you work for NAM?
