Today, I'm going to share the top 5 questions that you can expect to be asked in your pageant interview.

And, I'll help you develop your own answer by given you some sample answers to get your creative juices flowing.

The point of this exercise is not so that you'll memorize answers, but rather so that you can get to know yourself in a variety of ways and do some self-reflection in comfort before you're asked these questions under pressure.

When so much of your mental, emotional, and physical energy is put toward something you view as a goal to achieve left in the hands of 5 strangers...

...then not achieving it can feel like a massive shock coupled with the stages of grief like anger and depression, even self-loathing and pity.

At the very least, even the most emotionally well-adjusted human will feel let down and the sobering reality of depleted adrenal glands makes you want to just eat chocolate cake, lay in bed all day, watch cartoons, and swear you'll never compete in a pageant - ever - again.

In this episode, I'm going to teach you to brace yourself to quickly recover from a pageant loss.

To save you the sad backstage tears, the fake smile at the after party, and the days or weeks of depression that pageantry could force you into - if you don't follow these steps.

Today's Question comes from Lisbeth. She asks:
Pantyhose - yes or no? The bare-legged look has been popular for a long time. Does it apply to interview? How about evening gown, especially if the gown has a slit? I generally liked going bare-legged during evening gown since I may be wearing open toed shoes, but even if I'm not, bare feet give me more a grip on the sole of my shoe.
But interview....what is your advice? Thank you!
