Tips to be Successful
Never act like you are the best thing that just walked through the door! Leave the pre-
Always research or learn about the organization you are entering or the event you are trying to represent. Nothing looks worse than someone that does not have a clue about the event or company they are representing or wanting to represent. Do some homework, memorize a little bit. And if there are questions that come up during the event that you are unsure of, then be honest and say you do not know the answer. Do not try to wing it!
Be prepared for the event. Never leave outfits, practice, or learning your routines for the contest until the last minute. You’ll run out of time, and then you will not be satisfied or doubt with your selections. Always bring a little sewing kit with you, because you never know when you’ll have to make last-
Be on time! Always! This is a must and can not be stressed enough. In show business there is a saying that goes, “If you’re on-
Be courteous to your fellow contestants. There is no point to being rivals or bad-
Do not talk bad about your fellow contestants/models at any point in time! I know this one sounds like #5 but it bares repeating! Talking to girls about other girls never stays a secret! This is a lesson to be well learned by many females. It’s never the loudest girl that wins! It’s important to be polite.
Respect the organizers of the contest. These are the people that can make or break you. If you think for one second they do not have any hand in selecting the winner, guess again! The judges may pick the winner, but the organizers often give a full report to the judges about how a contestant has been acting throughout the event. Everything does get noticed. Even when you think you are not being judged, guess what? You ARE being judged. So it’s always best to put your best foot forward.
Respect the rules of the contest. Do not feel that the rules of the competition do not apply to you. If there is a curfew, there’s a reason for the curfew! Do not be shocked if there’s a surprise check at your door just after curfew. If they do not allow hair & makeup artists to style you or touch you up, then you better start practicing or taking lessons. If there are competition wardrobe requirements then it is best to follow them. Many pageant directors will tell their judges what is allowed and what is not . You are not the exception to the rules. If you feel like “cheating” in this department, you are probably the reason why rules were put in place.
Leave your boyfriends at home!!! This one has to be one of the biggest pageant tips! Ladies, your boyfriend can be your best friend, but at times your worst enemy. Tell the boyfriend that you’ll call him when you get the chance during or after the event, but you’ll be busy at rehearsals, interviews, and during the onstage competition!
*When a guy’s girlfriend is being the subject of everyone’s attention, watch out for a change in attitude. Do not let him dictate what you can and cannot do. If you want to enter a pageant or do a photo shoot, and if you’ve done your homework prior to, then all the more power to you. Many guys get intimidated or jealous when their girlfriend’s are beautiful, smart, talented, and receiving more attention than them.
Have fun! Enjoy the experience!! Whether it is a contest, an event, a fashion show or whatever, treat it like you may never get to be there again or do it ever again. Soak up the memories! And always follow up with a kind thank you email to the organizers so you never burn your bridges!
Refrain from saying the contest was fixed if you do not win. It just makes you look like a sore loser. That’s why it’s so important that you try to just have fun instead.
