Yes my daughter didn't win. I will be first to admit she didn't win and didn't deserve to win some girls were better prepared . After watching the award ceremony, I have to say do not enter this pageant. Yes my daughter didn't deserve to win, yet was funny that the...

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...

What are you thinking? Maybe hoping these pageants would be fair when they are run by people like Trump. Not going to happen.

Our first pageant ever, we were lied to from the very beginning. This will run you close to $600 and that's not including "optional" packages of which if your daughter does not do, lessens her chance of winning. If you can't come up with the rest of the balance, they...
