This makeup mirror story is everyone's worst nightmare in any competition. But also, the competition kind of set up situations that could lead to confrontation. The role of looks and aesthetic presentation in these competitions has always been out of proportion and controversial and it's the one area where time and resources are never really equal at the outset. Create more unexpected tension than already there about how long people have to get ready and you could be throwing lots of people under the bus. The malicious contestant should have been thrown out. But ,as with the picnic situation, people have all tried so hard-- Maybe these women have hurt themselves so many times to play this kind of zero-sum game already that rationalize hurting each other. Things like a picnic that's really just for the pictures or organizers making access to makeup mirrors more difficult plays into inherent tensions. I'd have imagined some people would practically sleep at their makeup mirrors, when beauty and upkeep has these kinds of stakes.

I found these stories interesting but wow I do not understand pageant culture lol. Why do they room them all together before the pageant? It's like they want to breed toxicity lol

As a dancer, I can confirm that Bollywood girl absolutely did the right thing! The first rule of any performance art is that *everything* you do onstage is intentional. Scarf falls off? Novelty costume choice. Shoe comes undone? It's so you can see my feet better. Smile, improv, convince them you meant to do that. So when you make a mistake you absolutely _cannot_ stop, or run off, and you _must_ perform to the end. I know keeping a smile on whilst internally keyboard smashing in panic must have been difficult-- kudos for getting through and for your win!!

When I competed internationally, when they would give us “smart casual” as a dress code, if your outfit doesn’t have a sequin; you’re under dressed.

What these stories like is that some of the girls in these are just complete full blown bitches and need make-up and glamor to hide that fact.

Once I competed for little Miss Hampton and I had done it the year before so we kind of knew the routine but guess what they changed it so I was ripping off my clothing and then the pageant director comes in looking for me saying that I need to get on stage and oh my God I hade I bra and White pants on so I was in a panic so I start putting back my clothes on which probably took a solid five minutes and then a run on stage just in time for the last girl to girl and me say my name so... that year I did deny win but I did the next year and also I was 11 at the time so ya that’s my story.

This was a local town pageant and it was my first. I had a very dedicated dad who would do anything for me. We we're told walking in "make sure you know where your shoes are at all times. Some girls like to take one shoe". So scared for that I had my dad hold them while he's in back waiting for me to come off stage. I continue to do the set and I realise my dad is the only dad/ parent holding 3 pairs of shoes. She made me and my dad paranoid. Luckily we made it to the regionals however we know now she did that to throw me off.

I had a friend into beauty pageants, and guess what happened in her last pageant at age 16? She was the runner-up for a state one, and she actually started dating one of the first people who lost, a body builder who was stunning. The two got hitched, and have a dog now and a beautiful little boy.

7:51 Honestly if a mishap happens stopping to fix things makes it look worse than if you keep going. I remember I lost a shoe at marching band practice one year cuz I was wearing slides. I kept going through my sets on the wet field with one shoe until they stopped us, then grabbed it lol
