Pageant Interview Questions and Answers

Pageant Interview Questions and Answers are questions asked by the judges before deciding who will join the semi-final round.




 

Beauty pageants have two types of interview questions. The casual interview and the final interview.




 

The casual interview portion is an elimination process for the candidates. Once you did not perform well on this part, the chance of joining the finalists is narrow. It is as bad as losing the pageant.

It is important then that you as a candidate must be aware of the pageant interview questions that might be asked based on the information on the application form you submitted.

As a word of advice, get to know yourself first before joining a beauty pageant. It is essential in winning the crown. List down casual interview questions, and think of what would be your answer.

How do you feel right now?

I am happy and overwhelmed.

How do you make yourself physically fit?

I make myself physically fit by strictly following two healthy routines that is morning exercise in the form of aerobics or sports and observance of proper intake of nutritious and the right foods for me.

How do you take care of your skin?

I take care of my skin by drinking enough water, having enough sleep, taking essential vitamins like A, B, C, and E for healthy skin, avoiding too much exposure to the sun’s rays and applying SPF lotion and skin soaps for a softer, smoother and moisturized skin.

What is the importance of a having a good skin?

Taking good care of our skin makes us look good, younger and even feel better and confident to ourselves. It creates a good impression to the people around us being a healthy and a tidy person. But more than that, the skin is the largest organ protecting the body from infections that could hurt the body internally.

What is your strength and weakness?

As a beauty pageant contestant, I find my confidence as my strength that I could use to convince businesspersons to have their investments here. In that way, my strength will not only be a great help for me to win this pageant, but also a great means to achieve my goal in helping the society I live in.

On the other side of the coin, I find controlling my emotions as my weakness but tonight, I will be the master of my emotions!

Can you explain your motto?

“To God be glory” always reminds me to discredit myself, be humble and keep myself on the ground whatever I may achieve.

Explain your motto, “Long for love, search for knowledge, and pity the suffering of mankind”.

The longing for love, the search for knowledge and the pity for the sufferings of mankind are actually three passions that governed the life of a philosopher named Bertrand Russell. Love will align me to a Christ-like living, the search for knowledge is my inclination to know what is true and the last one is my desire to help anyone who is in need.

What is your other guiding principle aside from your motto?

The maxim “Push your limitations as you live and die for others”, implies that I keep challenging my limitations; improving my skills and talents as I try to share these and be able to help and inspire others to do the same.

What is your ambition?

I want to be an entrepreneur because I plan putting-up a business and become successful with it. In that way, I will be able to help more people by providing them jobs. I think that is a long-term, continuous and sustainable way to help people and the community as well.

What is your other option aside from becoming an entrepreneur?

I want to be a good and brilliant lawyer in the Public Attorney’s Office to do public service. I want to help those hopeless faces in the prison cell deprived of freedom because they were not able to pay for a good lawyer. Let us imagine and ask ourselves, “What kind of life and future is stored for these prisoners and their families as well?” I believe the answer is already more than enough reason to convince myself to become a good lawyer not to mention those who are oppressed and helpless people because they have nothing in life.

Who is your favorite lawyer?

Of all the brightest and greatest lawyers, I like Jovito Salonga the most. His reputation is untarnished with corruption, his brilliance is unmatched and his contribution to the society as a lawyer and as a public servant is unequaled.

What can you say about the saying, “Lawyers are liars”?

Lawyers do not lie. They have code of professional ethics and canons to follow that in the case of non-adherence they will be disbar. It is not lying; it is saving, defending and believing the right of someone who is fighting the price of every inch of his freedom.

Why did you choose your course? (Teaching Profession)

I have always dreamed of becoming a teacher. At first I only wanted to stay in front of the class and ask them to read, but as I mature, I seeing now the true role of teachers. Teachers are catalysts of change and the molders of minds. With this in mind, I pursued my course in Education and to prepare my students for the world ahead of them. Being a teacher is really a difficult job but it is really the noblest profession there is for they build the next generation.

Why are you taking up AB Mass Communication?

Your ambition is to be a successful broadcaster and an entrepreneur, why is this so?

How do you see yourself fifteen years from now?

How would you help the community?

(I will study my lessons well so that I would be a successful…) I am taking up AB Mass Communication because I want to be a successful newscaster delivering the people and the community the information they need- accurate, responsible, and fearless broadcasting without bias and prejudice against influential and powerful people. I can see myself uncovering cases better left unsaid for I believe that it is the right of the public to know. I can see myself as a successful researcher-broadcaster too, documenting every little detail of significance that the concerned public must and should know.

I can also see myself as a successful and responsible entrepreneur providing jobs to hundreds and thousands of Filipinos who are unemployed. In that way, poverty, which causes ill health, crimes and other cancers of the society, will be lessened.

What will you do if you fail the license examination? (Business courses)

Try again, because I want to put up businesses and become successful with it. Because in that way, I would be able to help more people for I will be lowering unemployment since this business establishment would be of course providing jobs to my fellow Filipinos and with that, I am uplifting poor societal conditions, and that would be helpful to those who are much in need of help. I believe that would be enough reason to take the examination again and again if that would be the case.

You are studying in a topnotch university in the country. Can you tell us something about being a student there?

Being a student means knowing your priorities and having proper time management. As a student I try to manage my time well by first, is setting aside things like going to malls, and chatting with friends on the internet. Second, thinking out and focusing on the task to be prioritize and to be done as soon as possible, and third is I make sure that I follow my parent’s advice because they know what’s the best for me. And the most important why I can survive in a very competitive university is that, I always ask God’s grace and guidance.

What is your favorite magazine?

I have chosen Readers Digest as my favorite magazine because it contains a variety of readings from true to life-inspiring stories to jokes, features and special editions and news. It is actually the most read magazine all over the world.

What other magazines do you read?

Other than Readers Digests, I consider TIME Magazine as one. The write-ups are great, its news are of international interest, and their magazine has bright and colorful pictures and illustrations.

Who is the comedian you wanted the most?

I will be choosing Michael V. as my comedian. He has brought fame and honor to the country and has proven it by being featured in The Reader’s Digest. It is a proof of how one person can be great and be acknowledged by the world. No comedian has ever given such pride and honor to the country. 

What is your favorite movie?

I have chosen Troy as my favorite movie because the story was enticing, inspiring and emotionally appealing especially when the Greek soldiers were able to open the gates of Troy. It makes me feel that even the unconquerable dilemmas and problems in our lives have solutions and endings through perseverance and faith.

What are your hobbies?

Watching TV and surfing the net has become essential and important to me even if I consider them as my hobbies. Both the media and the web are essential tools that keep me updated especially to gadgets, technologies and new innovations.

What particular TV program do you watch?

I like Discovery Channel of all. I learn and discover a lot from that TV program. It highlights the beauty of the world that God created as our home to take good care of. We should learn how to appreciate this and be a nature lover. (Aside from Discovery Channel, I like watching my favorite broadcasters so I watch CNN, 24 Oras and TV Patrol News because I want to be a successful broadcaster someday.)

What is your favorite sport?

I have chosen volleyball as my favorite sport because it is an exciting game. I believe it has become an avenue for other people to help the youth and the society itself to be far from delinquency and vices.

What color will best represent your personality?

*I am a determined person. And I chose the color green to best describe my outlook in life because like the green grasses, I will continue to fight and live even how many times I will be cut down by challenges and tribulations in life. I will stand-up no matter what happen— in God’s grace.

*The color that best describes my outlook in life would be the color white. White represents optimism. I am an optimistic person. I look at things in a positive way, thinking that the glass is half-full and not half-empty. God has taught us how to trust in HIM. And like righteousness, simplicity, contentment, calmness and divinity, that is associated with the color white, would always shine and give happiness to people amidst the other colors.

You said to us that your favorite colors are green, pink and sky-blue, why do you like these colors?

Two of these colors represent the colors of the world. Green being the color of the mother earth and sky-blue, the great blue sky. The color Pink represents “me”, since it represents femininity and likewise it symbolizes love which should be in between the world we live in and the sky we look and pray above.

Pink: love, femininity, Green: growth, freshness, hope, Blue: vastness, infinity, calmness, peace.

What makes a complete, healthy and happy family for you?

A complete, healthy and happy family is where love is abundant and abounding. Each one of us does his or her obligations. We remain intact because we are bound by our love with each other despite the fact that we are separated by distance. But as of now, my father is already with us and he is watching right now, while mother is still in abroad and I believe she is praying for my pageant. (Case to case basis)

What can you say about the people who do not believe in you?

I believe in the saying “You cannot impress everybody.” especially when it comes to your talents, skills, and intelligence but you can always try to make them like you as a person and in reciprocal, like them too.

Why is science important?
What is your favorite subject?

I like (environmental) science the most because it arouses my curiosity and it is important to everyone. It is in science that we discover how life begins, understand why there is still life today and discover what we must do to ensure that life goes on in the future.

What are the steps that you do to excel in your studies?

As a student, I try to manage my time well by first, setting aside less important things like going to malls and chatting with my friends on the internet. Second, thinking out and focusing on the priorities to be done. Third, I make sure that I follow my parents’ advice because they know what is best for me. Last, I always ask God’s grace and guidance.

How do you manage stress?

Stress motivates us to achieve things and fuels creativity; but if not managed appropriately, it can contribute anxiety disorders. As a student, I manage stress by thinking out and focusing on the task to be done, and then give myself a break like watching TV. After relaxing, I will start working out the problem. It is simple but I find this very effective.

What is your favorite song/music?

I like Pachelbel Canon D of all. It is instrumental and it has this magical rhythm and scientific musicality that will leave one’s mood relax and will not cause your hearing to go fatigue even if you play for how many times.

It says here that you are doing ballroom dancing, why do like it?

Ballroom dancing just like any other dances serve as a form communication or expression for me. And I express myself naturally through movements. Aside from that, it helps me to socialize during social gatherings and is a very good habit for anybody since it also serves as a form of exercise and removes stress.

You just turn 18 years old this year, what is the significance of celebrating one’s 18th birthday?

The point where a girl becomes a woman is the time when she reach her 18th birthday. From there onward, starts her social responsibility and social accountability for her actions and deeds as a citizen and as a woman. Because at this time, and through her debut, she is formally introduce to the society with all the legal and social rights and capacity a woman must have.
