First of all, I would like to know where these so called judges come from? My daughter was just in a NAM pageant on July 4th weekend in Jacksonville, Florida.
This one particular judge had on a stripped dress that was shorter than my hair. Not only was it tight but it was very unprofessional. She also had tattoos on her body. Who was she that she could judge the appearance of anybody.
Next, my daughter along with other girls parents were told that we could not help our daughters get dressed before their big finale. My daughter had about three minutes to change into her gown and no assistants was available from the supposedly aides that would assist them in getting dressed. My child had to pull tags off of her dress with her teeth then rush to try to get into her gown. Someone needs to let the Marketing Director know, that certain people were not following her rules.
Parents were back there helping their daughters and had I known, I could have helped my daughter but I was trying to do what was asked of us. I guess, some folks can do whatever they want, and people just turn their heads to their wrongness. It was also quite obvious that no matter how bad you messed up in your speech that someone wrote for you and you couldn't memorize it, you could still be chosen to win in almost every category they had, especially if you looked like the judges. My daughter was hurt because she signed up for a $150.00 photo shoot and some of the pictures were dark and the props were also in the pictures.
This pageant just like others was surely judged on "THAT CERTAIN LOOK", and not what all of these girls really had to offer. The same girls kept winning all of the trophies and money. One day I hope and I pray that our girls will be judged by their character and not by the color of their skin.
All I can say is thank goodness for cosmetics. They were the real winners.
Reason of review: unfair event.
Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.
National American Miss Cons: No assistance for the girls, Liked they promised.
Location: Tallahassee, Florida
