Many times, the interview can be the most intimidating competition of the entire pageant! You have to consider what the judges will think, how you should answer, how you should sit etc etc etc...the list goes on forever!
To ease some of your nerves, I wanted to provide the top FIVE most common pageant questions...you should work on these weekly, as your answers do indeed change. Work on formulating your answer to have the best sentence structure and thought possible, but do not sound over-rehearsed; you want to sound confident! If you are questioning whether you sound over-rehearsed or not, call me and let's find out!
1. What three words best describe you?
*don't just list the three words, briefly tell me about how each word describes you
2. What do you want to do in the future/what is your ambition?
*ok, this does not have to be exactly what is on your resume. The judges understand that these things change!
3. What are some of your strengths?
*be prepared to answer the flip side question: "what are some of your weaknesses"
4. If you win this weekend, what will you do with your year?
*don't just say "go to nationals and win"...what else?
5. Why should we select you as the titleholder?
*my favorite question...go on, tell me why!
Use the questions above to get your mind working...of course, there are 100s and 100s of possible questions for interviews and while we could not possibly practice every single possible question in the world prior to your pageant, we can at least get you prepared to handle any question with confidence and poise.
Winning takes practice, it doesn't happen overnight...how much practice are you willing to put in?
With your success in mind,
Victory and the BV team
