Beauty pageants aren’t just about putting on a pretty dress and smiling, as evidenced by these 50 common beauty pageant questions and answers for teenagers.
I’ve never been in any kind of pageant situation, so I can’t really speak from personal experience on this topic, but I imagine it requires a lot of grace that I really don’t have. I can hardly walk in a straight line most of the time. I’m proud of anyone who does pageants and is really good at them because they’re beautiful people with a lot more patience and they can tolerate having a group of people judge them, which would likely make me cry.
Pageants vary according to the theme and there are a lot of different types of pageants. The major beauty pageants most of us are familiar with are Miss Universe, Miss World, Miss International, Miss Earth, and, of course, Miss America. Candidates come from different places, but they’re brought together aiming for one vision or common goal. The general vision is to make the world a better place somehow.
