Super Bowls and Pageants- More Similar Than We Think?

With millions of people watching at home and in Glendale, Arizona, you would have to be hiding under a rock to not notice the game and how the tables turned. I think the Katy Perry, Missy Elliot and Lenny Kravitz half-time show was absolutely awesome! The best half-time performance I had ever seen. The animatronic lion and the multitude of costume changes was an accomplishment in and of itself.

The commercials- who does not love a good puppy commercial? The Budweiser Clydesdales and the puppy were priceless. I have to say I give kudos also to Chevrolet as they announced streaming availability in the Chevrolet Colorado. The snowy television screen really got your attention. I stopped what I was doing.
As I watched the Super Bowl on Sunday, January 31, 2015 and it was a nail biting game. I could not help but see similarities with pageants. Players train countless hours, practicing and strategizing their plays and making sure they are in top notch shape to endure the physical activity of the game.

Competing in pageantry is similar–it is in fact a competition. You practice modeling to a certain degree and staying up on your current events in case you are asked about a recent news event. You want to be as prepared as possible in all aspects. You must run on all cylinders so to speak, both physically and mentally. Which means, eating rights, getting rest, drinking plenty of water, so you are your best self.
Contestants work out, practice interview questions, practice walking and stage presence. They have an action plan or a strategy. Sports teams have strategies as well and must work to accomplish their goals.

That being said, the Super Bowl took a different turn than what was originally expected and or projected. Sometimes pageants can do. In the wise words of the now deceased pageant photographer, David Bartley, the contestant that wins is the most prepared and makes the least mistakes.
One wrong step can change your fate in an instant –as we saw in Super Bowl Forty-nine.

And the Winner is…Columbia is the new Miss Universe

Last Sunday, January 25, 2015 all of us pageant enthusiasts were glued to our televisions while over 80 young women from across the globe competed for a large prize package and the honor and title of being the next Miss Universe.

The pageant with all its glitz and glamour was hosted in part by the prestigious Trump National Doral. The property looked absolutely breathtaking.

Some things changed this year. I enjoyed the ability to be able to post a question on Facebook at #missuniverse. One question was to be selected at the end of the night as the final question that the top five would answer. Although, my question was not selected, I was glad to have this opportunity to submit. I quickly realized the value of having an emcee ask the onstage question. There was a language barrier and it was not just the contestant, but the judges as well.

In the end, there were two final contestants vying for the prestigious title that most girls dream about. Miss USA, Nia Sanchez was first runner up and Miss Columbia Paulina Vega captured the title. Vega, a 22 year old Columbian Business Administration major.

From Miss USA to Celebrity Apprentice
I especially enjoyed the tie in on Monday night with the Celebrity Apprentice. The task was to create an interactive theme that would entice people to stay at luxurious Trump National Doral in Doral Florida.

I thought it was a great tie in from the night before at the Miss Universe Pageant.
I must say it is marketing genius. I enjoyed both nights of NBC television. For those of you that do compete in pageants or have an interest in entering one, I encourage you to consider the pageant below. We are a great pageant for all ages and levels of competition. I am running a special, whereby you can enter your age division and all specialty awards for $100. This rate will expire on Valentine’s Day. I am in the process of mailing out brochures. If you would like to receive a brochure, please contact me at Karen@distinct-impressions.net and provide your mailing address and email as well.
