    7x5.5: Showed it today in Australia, what a treat before the footy finals...

    These girls were stunning, my favourites were Kentucky and California. Who else watched?

    Personally, I avoid those things like the plague. I think you'd find just about all the contestants were really unpleasent people, most of them with mental problems.

    Maybe I just like the "im so moral" feeling or something, but I just cannot watch them...

    Miss "teen?"

    I prefer my women to be at least the legal age.

    In most places sixteen or eightteen seems to be the legal age...

    Teen doesnt necissarily meen that they are under the legal age, Im a teenager, and I'm legal, I could even post pictures on here - if I was so inclined. I could even run off and do porn if I really wanted to.

    Wait... why am I defending a beauty pagent and men's rights to gawk at them? :shrug:

    This is just your common stereotypical comment from a guy who obviously does not know ANYTHING about pageants or the contestants in them. Granted, there are young ladies who have an array or multitude of problems, but then there are others who are well educated, well poised, articulant and quite pleasant. I think guys like you make these hiddeous remarks because you are too intimidated to get to know girls/women who participate in these types of events.

    I am offended and yes, I am a title holder... an eleven time title holder who happens to be pleasant, intelligent, successful, and without the mental crap you've assumed we all carry!

    The general idea of pageant girls that's spread by movies implies that they aren't the brightest, and intriguant when it comes to dealing with other girls off the stage, especially if they're co-contestants. Since hardly a man has ever seen the real off-stage action of a beauty pageant, I myself included. So, I will avoid a comment on the mental status of those girls, also becaust I tend to trust Dr. Bubbles' first-hand experience.

    I didn't watch the contest, but sometimes I run into other pageants on TV, and yes, the girls are stunning - but what'd you expect if you watch a pageant? Still, in my opinion the general beauty ideal doesn't hit my nerve. The girls - even if they might have it (hard to tell without knowing them) - are presented in a very soft way, whereas I love a woman with an edge to her, mentally as well as in some physical ways. If you want an example for what I mean with the "physical" edge, you should check out the face of that french Tennis player, Amelie Mauresmo, then you see what I mean.

    I don't know much about pageant procedures, but I can't imagine it's an easy business. Maybe we should have more respect for the girls contesting, and not stereotypically flame them.

    BB is absolutely correct. I have met quite a few ladies who were in pageants as contestants and many winners of various pageants. I have also known, before she entered, a lady who would be crowned her local winner, then win her state pageant, and then become Miss America and then she went on to a career in TV and movies. She, and none of the other ladies I met could ever be described as anything but great girls. Bright, intelligent, very poised, educated, and nice people. Yes, they are beautiful, but most are pretty normal girls who have boy friend issues, college classes carrying a full load, and many also work to provide some income. They mostly all have big hearts and kind souls. It is surprising that from my experience, many of the most beautiful women did not have that many dates because most guys are too afraid of rejection to ask them out. It is amazing the number of bright, beautiful ladies who spend a lot of "date nights" at home alone, and many of them were pageant ladies. The movies and TV play the worst stereotypes and is totally false. No one from a TV movie who is a pageant contestant could make it in pageants in real life. Pageants are actually hard work. Months of preperation, dieting, exercise regimens that would make men give up, endless talent rehearsals for hours each day, keeping up with current events, writing essays to focus the mind on issues, the list is endless. Pageants are work and lots of it. The stereotypical "dumb blonde" would not get selected in a county fair pageant much less win a state contest or higher. If the ladies in pageants do have a "fault" it would be that they are all highly motivated and focused on their goals in life. Pity more people are not like that and have those "faults".
    Personally, I prefer the Miss USA pageant (the ladies are more curvy than Miss America contestants....lol), but I respect them all. These women earn scholarship money and help pay their way through college.
    BB, my hat is off to you if you are a former pageant contestant and won ll titles. That is a lot of talent, effort, and dedication. Take a bow...you have earned it

    Big Ben,

    Thank you for speaking so eloquently and so articulant. I am a former pageant winner and have held titles varying from tribal, to local, to county, to university, to state and one "international" title (s)- for indigenous peoples. I started doing pageants when I was 4 years old and LOVED it. I worked hard for all those entries and people would not believe the amount of time, energy and effort in preparation. Thank you for realizing that and stating it.

    Also, I think I have some nice curves, too. :p

    Thank you!
