Pageant Problems, Candidates, & Coaches

Problems of Candidates

Pageant problems are not really in nature cause by pageant itself. But it is because of some people around it that make it so. Beauty pageant coaches or pageant trainers, have to protect their pageant candidates from problems and dangers that lie ahead that candidates may not know because of their young minds. Let us say they are young in a sense that they do not how to avoid or what to do when encountering some beauty pageant problems.

If you are a beauty pageant candidate, you become exposed to the public and become a public figure. You are in a hot-seat when you become part of the entertainment industry. You lose your privacy and you become a topic – a buzz of conversation to people and eventually a target of the bad elements of the society.

Problems and Coaches


This is one of the advantages of having pageant coaches or pageant trainers who are somewhat known to the public and have established their names. Though influential people may have the power to do things they may like to, at least in some way these people may also consider who is the person behind those beauty pageant candidates they intend to abuse their powers.

However, before that happens and things get complicated, pageant coaches should have already advised their candidates to avoid such things and if it’s unavoidable, should have already prepared them on how to act on such scenarios.

Contact Numbers

Sometimes, I asked my pageant candidates to give my contact number instead of theirs when somebody from the pageant industry is asking it. The trick is, they can easily explain the next day that all negotiations and offers or any communications they have to do must have to pass through their pageant coaches or pageant trainers. Plus, the phone they are currently using are provided by the same as stated in their service agreement and contract. In this way, they are able to lessen some miscellaneous or unsolicited text messages because these bad elements are somewhat and oftentimes intimated with the process of formality. They too, fear being exposed to the public as perverts by persons who may have the power to do so.

Indecent Proposals

One of the very common pageant problems a beauty pageant candidate will encounter will be indecent proposals. It comes in different forms: by light intimate conversation, by intimidation, by offers in exchange of favors, and the most dangerous of them all – by force.

Another way of effectively avoiding beauty pageant problems like indecent proposals is to never accept invitations especially if it is a house party, a coffee or a tea party. You should realize that oftentimes, these are baits intentionally done just for you or for the other pageant candidates. This is what I call “Delayed Indecent Proposals”. The person tries to get your trust first and make you comfortable in his own ways until he gets to the execution of his vain plans.

Selecting Coaches

But being one of the pageant candidates, sometimes you have to accept invitations. Your pageant coach or pageant trainer must have already enough knowledge about which one is not a bait. Your task however is to choose who among the pageant coaches or pageant mentors is the one you can trust. Plus, your courage not to allow and entertain beauty pageant problems or pageant dilemmas like indecent proposals will surely help you stay away or out of the many common pageant problems.
