How to Answer: Why Should You Be the Next Titleholder?

14, January 2015

This is one of the most common questions asked in pageant interview, and yet a lot of girls don't like getting it because they think their answer will be similar to everyone else. To some extent, that's true: judges have probably heard a lot of "I'm a hard worker" and "I want to make a difference," but this doesn't mean you should avoid these answers if you truly feel them.

Why did you enter?

To get prepared for this question, think about why you are entering the pageant. Is it to gain self-confidence? Make new friends? Be a role model? Gain some stage experience? No matter what your reason is, this can help you think about why you'd make a good titleholder. Use your inspiration to propel you forward! 

What will you do if you win?

Imagine the day after you win the pageant. What are you planning? Who are you networking with? How will you promote your title and the pageant itself? Thinking from the end and going back is a great way to approach answering questions about why you'd make an excellent titleholder. Making a year-long plan for your reign is a strong tool for ensuring that you hit all of your target goals and make the most of the 365 days you'll have as a titleholder. Planning in advance also helps get you in a positive frame of mind about the upcoming pageant but causing you to visualize what your experience as the winner might be like. The more you can visualize winning, the better.

What makes you different?

What sets you apart from other contestants? Every person who comes into a pageant is unique and has their own reasons for being there, and you should celebrate yours. What makes you different from other contenders? Is it your work ethic? Your work with your platform? Your willingness and ability to network with sponsors? Think of a pageant interview like a job interview and market your skillsets appropriately.

How to answer?

Now, this is not the only way to answer this question but it will give you an idea that you can work from.

"All the girls whom I'm competing against today are confident, beautiful and hardworking but what really sets me apart from them and the reason why I should win is that I recognize that this is a job and my responsibility for this job requires me to market this pageant as any good spokesmodel would. So here is my plan on how I would market this pageant so that next even more girls compete..."

Use this formula and then give a few ideas like handing out your business card to every beautiful girl you see at the mall or writing "how to" tutorials on various pageant blogs (like Pageant Planet) that will enable you to get the name of the system promoted.

Keep in mind that you should veer away from putting other girls down when you answer this question. A judge wants to be impressed with what you have to offer, and starting to talk negatively about other girls can lead them to think you're not diplomatic. There's nothing wrong with stressing your good qualities, just don't do so in a way that makes other girls look bad.
