So, you have entered a pageant, or are thinking about entering a pageant and you are so excited to get started on your new pageant journey with this organization. Your pageant’s director is going to be a huge part of any experience with a pageant, so let's talk about some of their biggest pet peeves and how to avoid them so you can have a positive relationship with the director of your next pageant!
There is an old saying in pageantry that says if you are early, you are on time, if you are on time, you are late, and if you are late, you are left. Pageant directors run a tight ship in order to make sure that the show goes off without a hitch, and contestants who do not adhere to their schedule or itinerary make that very difficult.
Another pet peeve of directors is contestants who do not listen during rehearsals. Rehearsals may not be the most fun part of pageantry, but they are for your own benefit. You do not want to be the only one who walks off of introductions stage left, when everyone else goes off stage right!
There is nothing worse for a director than a contestant who constantly has to be asked to pay attention and stop interrupting in rehearsals!
Pageant directors put everything they have into a pageant weekend. Every detail is thought through to make sure that the contestants enjoy their time. A big pet peeve of pageant directors is the contestant who walks off stage during awards when they do not win.
Please do not be that contestant! You enjoyed the whole pageant that the director put together for you, so learn to lose gracefully! There is only ever going to be one winner at a pageant, so be respectful of the contestant who did take home the crown!
