This was not started to bring up negative thoughts. I was just wanting to know who won, I heard the girl was from Monroe and I know some girls there that are beautiful and was just wondering what the competition would be for our SOKY winner.

I do know Alexis and she is a beautiful girl

Was Alexis the winner for Miss Teen?? Does anyone know who received Miss Barren County Fair or Miss Barren County?? I looked on the Glasgow Daily Times website and WCLU and couldnt find the winners. I like to go to the pageants and was curious as well if anyone I knew won!

I was wondering about that also. Miss Barren and Miss Barren County Fair...I always finding out who the winners are....I don't think these pageants are rigged. I too have judged and never approached by anyone to rig the pageant....but I guess it could happen

Not all pageants are rigged but the majority of them are.

I helped with this pageant and I can assure you that is was not rigged. We always try to get the judges from out of town so that they don't know any of the contestants.

The judges are "out of town" yet the contestants are out of town as well. Even the article in the newspaper is about two girls who traveled an hour and a half to be in the pageant...so where do u draw the line? Maybe one of the judges came from that town as well.. And I think there needs to be a limit to how many girls can be entered. There is always way to many. First come first serve. Yes Miss Barren County is from Barren County only...but I just don't seen the point in having both...obviously the girls who made the top for Miss "Fair" will get the "County". I have watched and been in way to many pageants. I know how these work. I'm not jealous or saying this was rigged. I love Sarah and I think the girl that won the Fair is beautiful and extemely sweet, but I don't think they are fair, in the sense that there are way to many girls in the competition.

Out of town...used to be fine but these girls travel around the state doing pageants and unless you go out of state, it's hard to have a non-biased pageant. Our local fair boards do a great job in putting on events that our community can enjoy but it would be nice to see judges from outside our state. Out of town....so are the contestants. But I will say that I have seen qualified judges...but they do know the girls. Rigged? If you have fun competing...you can't never let that enter your mind.

You can be assured than no one at the Judges table knew anyone in the pageants. The one judge who had judged at other pageants, had not done so this season. She is very fair and was in awe that the other judges did leave out 2 that should have been in the final 10 and of 2 that did get in the final 10. She hopes that those 2 girls that did not make it go ahead and try in other open pageants that are yet to be held. (However, no one knows who will be in the next round of competition).

what i would like to know is how these girls are judged. All i ever see are the judges talking to one another. To me the only fair way to judge a lot of beautiful girls would be for each judge to score on a point system then all points added together and highest score wins. This way even the judges wouldnt know until its announced. I think a lot of times one judge sways the others.

I was at the baby pageant and of the same judges were there as at the other one then there was no way of it not being rigged. I saw way too many upper citezens babies win when it should have been other who won duie to looks and personality!!!!!! I mean when you have 3-4 babies sitting there not doing anything not even smiling and have other s laughing and talking to the judges who do you think should win

The point system is not the best. I have judged several pageants in the past and if one judge has a particular contestant they want to win it is very easy to manipulate the scores so that that particular one wins. The problem with the Barren County fair is that the nice women that volunteer and put on the pageant are not "pageant people". My daughter use to do a lot of pageants and we traveled all over the state. If you go to a lot of pageants you get to know people and know how some of the contestants are connected. The ladies that put on the pageant are not aware of some of the connections. With this said, the large turnout at Barren usually results in a beautiful girl being chosen. I think the ladies putting on the pageant do try to do the best that they can and would never knowingly get judges that know the contestants, but it happens.
