How do you feel about beauty pageants? A powerful tool to boost female confidence, or a slap in the face to the gender?
Before answering, I want to provide a small amount of info on how the pageants (or at least the Miss America pageants) are judged.
* Lifestyle and Fitness in Swimsuit - 15%
* Evening Wear - 20%
* Talent - 35%
* Private Interview - 25%
* On-Stage Question – 5%
35% - physical appearance
35% - Talent
30% - Personality and intelligence
(Private interviews are generally not shown to the public, but the on stage questions are.)
So what are your opinions?
