glitz pageant

Best accidental shade ever...

In this episode of Toddlers & Tiaras,* the pageant theme is “The History of America” and the pageant director in happily introducing the theme explains:

“To take the history of America and, you know, to glitz it up, well that’s just part of the South.”

Me right now….

I mean…..she’s not wrong.

*Yes I know my taste in reality television is utter trash but I’ve been in the hospital for almost a month straight at this point and, eventually, you do what you have to do to cope. 

Confession

The new Miss USA just inspired me. I’m 15 & have always loved the glitz and glamour of pageants even tho me myself have never participated in them, I remember watching all the pageant shows from Little Miss Perfect to Toddlers & Tiaras. Anyways, I’m just so happy that a black girl who’s darkskin won. But while watching I couldn’t help but noticed all the women were bone skinny, I am an overweight/chubby girl & it sucks not seeing big girls being represented. That’s why I just got an idea it’s totally far fetch but I was thinking bout when I turn 18 to run for Miss USA or Miss America, if I won I think I would be the FIRST BLACK PLUS SIZE Miss USA or Miss America. It sounds wonderful but for 1. I first have to win my state’s pageant, then I’ll be able to apply for Miss USA 2. It costs over 1,000 just to participate in the pageant 3. I most likely have to spend over what maybe 3,000 for gown, hair, makeup,etc 4. I know I could have people donate money to me but I’d hate to have people waste their money on me if I don’t even win my state’s pageant.
I feel as if me being a plus size contestant for Miss USA is unrealistic, all these obstacles I’ll have to go through just to not probably not even be able to represent my state in Miss USA & yeah what if I do win & be able to participate in Miss USA, have to compete against 50 other girls who’s been doing pageants all their lives & is more qualified than me. I think this would be really something I’ll like to achieve but I just can’t.
