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 amazing. They pick and choose who they truly want and girls should not win out of pity of favoritism. The people running the pageant are not that friendly.
It's a good experience for your child to learn about interviews and introductions, but terrible how they have it set up.
Also so much money and you literally pay for everything possible. I'm surprised we don't have to buy the staffs food or clothes as an extra fee.
