Anatomy of Beauty Pageants | A Pageant Question and Answer Reviewer and a Total Guide for Aspiring Beauty Queens

Pageant Book

The book is divided into three parts. The first one contains the most common pageant questions and answers. I’ve listed down the popular pageant questions of all time, sample answers and some tips and guidelines to deliver a winning answer. I would like to emphasize that this is not cheating but merely a part of your preparation so that you would not get too nervous and have an actual idea on how to best answer possible questions.

126 Most Common Pageant Questions
20 Casual Interview Questions
6 Pure Science Questions
12 Sports Related Pageant Questions
13 Common Subjects of Picture Questions
18 Symbols & Meanings of Common Things
9 Pairs of “Chose Between the Two”
11 Generic Phrases That Could Help You

All with Sample Original Winning Answers.

It was a conscious choice to put it on the first part, for I know
that the Q&A has always been trivial and puzzling to most
candidates. I would like to emphasize again that the answers
here are not meant to be memorized nor could it guarantee a
candidate’s chances of winning. These are but sample answers
which I fashioned on how my observation of what the judges
and audience liked in past pageants.

The second part of the book contains pageant tips from screening
to winning. It is basically Pageant 101. It introduces the world
of pageantry; its mechanics, criteria, background, segments etc.

For first timers, this book – the second part in particular – is very
important. It gives one the necessary information needed to be
in the know and fully understand and win a pageant.

they should be dealt with. This bit is essential for a would-be
candidate’s protection and security.

This book had a long journey before its materialization. This project was initially a compilation of blog articles and guide questions which I wrote and put online due to the requests and demands of the people who I’ve had the fortune to work with.

When I was still in the university and being part of the student government, we were tasked to organize student activities such as concerts, academic competitions and pageants. As president of the said organization, I was privileged to see and observe everything from its planning to materialization. What caught my attention though is the rigorous work pageantry entailed not just to the organizers, but to the candidates and their hired coaches.

Later on, when I became part of the academe, it became a part
of my job to train and review would-be candidates that would
represent the school in the province or region. I was again
tasked to observe and evaluate their performance especially in
preparation for the question and answer portion of the contest.

The fulfillment of my task fueled my curiosity and interest in
pageantry. I wrote down my observations and theories on how
student pageant candidates can improve their performance
including the effective ways of answering hardball questions.

Students whom I’ve had the fortune of handling may have told
others that I was one of the people who trained and helped
them prepare for pageants. Soon, there came a great demand
for my coaching and guidance to aspiring pageant candidates.
The original blog where I put all my ideas became a hit which
prompted for me to eventually register it as a website.

What was originally just a stint because of my teaching profession
became my passion, my blog a website, the blog articles turned
into pdf files international personalities bought, and now, for the
benefit of all those who need and want a crash course per se on
pageantry, this book is written.

This book is written for the purpose of helping both established
and aspiring coaches, aspiring candidates and pageant organizers
to understand pageantry from its mechanics, requirements,
segments and other vital elements.
