Beauty Pageants Through The Years, Part 2

Beauty pageants have not been with incidents, deceit, and tarnished reputations. For example, in 1937, just after being crowned, Bette Cooper decided she just wanted to go home and left, which caused an extensive search and struggle for pageant officials. In 1957, Leona Gage, Miss USA was ripped of her crown after her husbands mother disclosed that she was the mother of two children and married.

In 1973, Miss World and the first American to hold the crown, lost her crown and title, thanks to rumors floating around about numerous affairs. In 1984, Vanessa Williams, the first black woman to win the title of Miss America, resigned from her title and crown because she had posed for nude photographs in the popular adult magazine Penthouse. On about the same note in 2006, Miss Great Britain, loses her title and crown after she was found to have relations with member of the judging panel, as well as posing in nude photographs for the adult magazine Playboy.

The Miss America Beauty Pageant has had 87 winners from a variety of states, Miss USA has had 10 winners, one of which went on to win Miss Universe, and 23 Miss Teen USA winners, since the beauty pageants began. A fascinating Miss Teen USA fact is that eight states have yet to have any girls place as a finalist in the beauty pageant.

As long as women have a fascination with beauty, beauty pageants will continue to be as popular as they have always been. Married or unmarried women, teens, pre-teens, and even toddlers enter beauty pageants today, all over the world. There is always a pageant. In the south, there are schools that hold their own beauty pageants such as “Little Miss Fourth District” for a elementary school in Georgia, or Little Miss Tree Festival, there is no age limit in beauty pageants today.
