Why Your Winning Reaction is Important

17, June 2013
Whenever I think of memorable winning reactions, a few in particular come to mind. Samantha Head, pageant novice, won the Miss Florida National Teenager title in 2011 and went on to win the national title of America’s National Teenager 2012.

Brenna Mader, Miss Tennessee USA 2013, she had a look that made me grin from ear to ear.

Mallory Hytes-Hagan, Miss New York 2012, went on to win Miss America. These are all endearing and unforgettable reactions. They were genuine and likely unrehearsed.

I personally look down upon rehearsing a winning reaction. This to me shows arrogance. If you are fortunate enough to win the title you are vying for, you should show your gratitude by thanking the judges and the audience genuinely. I love to see a girl who is truly surprised at the announcement of her name. The second and most important way to show your appreciation is to do what you promised with your title. Promote your platform, the program, and yourself with integrity and grace. Now don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with good naturedly posing in the mirror and envisioning yourself with that sparkly crown on your head. In fact, this is a good thing.(The Pageant Planet email subscribers see Steven’s recent email entitled, “How to Talk Yourself into A Crown.”)

The reigning America’s National Teenager, Kendra Emerson suggests that it is best to be original and true in regards to pageantry. I wholeheartedly agree. My Mom’s philosophy has always been, “If you’re going to do something do it right.” This can be applied to anything. In this case, do yourself a favor and work hard for the crown. If at the end of the day the judges see you fit the profile, you can flash those pearly whites and do the hula if you’d like. But until then,
