just wondering if anyone else ever thinks the fair pageants are not fair?? i have had kids i know i the little miss and mr for several years now and it seem like people talk about the kids that always win did not win fairly...this year i heard that the couple that won, one of their parents was on the fair board and friends with the director of the pageant..how is that fair?? i think if you have anything to do with the fair your kids should not be able to compete..not says the kids werent cute just it looks bad

I was wondering the same thing. I wouldnt want to put my kids through it if I was on the board and have to deal with the talk, they could have won fair and square but no one would believe it. His other daughter won it 2 yrs ago also so>>>>>seems a lil fishy too me

I was wondering the same thing, the couple that won were very cute but with her dad being on the board, who knows??? Was it fair or not?? I think his other daughter won it 2yrs ago. Sounds a lil fishy to me

From what I understand, most county pageants bring in judges from other counties so they are not familiar with contestants. I have judged pageants in Webster county and all the other judges were from henderson county. I am pretty sure Hopkins County does the same thing but don't quote me on it. I could be wrong.

let me tell you, the pageants are sooo rigged! i was in ms teen hopkins county years ago and it was allegedly mandatory to show up at the practices, interview, etc. or you werent allowed to compete. well, a group of us did all that and the interview section was the morning of the pageant and we were all there-well, that night when we all went on stage there was this random girl there. we were all asking each other who she was-she wouldnt talk to us-and none of us had seen her prior to the on-stage part. well, lo and behold she is the one who took the crown. that idiot wasnt there for ANYTHING except to climb on stage and she was the winner! we were all so mad, then we found out her parents were very prominent figures in town, so we werent shocked. its rigged. and the girls who won 2nd and 3rd were the ones whose moms wouldve made a big stink about it if their kid didnt win. i never participated in another hopkins co pageant after that. blah!
whatever

Give me a break! First off.. you are scored on your interview so the girl had to of went to interview! Yes, you should attend all the practices but most directors know that these are teenagers and most teenagers attend camps during the summer so as long as somebody is there to turn in their paper work and get their number and they are at least one of the practices they understand! What year did you compete in the Teen pageant?

hell i dont know, 99, maybe 98. but im telling you, your big head wasnt there and thats exactly what happened. we were all very mad. and no, the ho bag wasnt there for the interview-i KNOW you get judged for the interview, thats why it was blatantly obvious that it was RIGGED! and besides, just look at the ones who win...its evident that theyre rigged.

You lost, get over it!! And your wrong... i have attended every little miss/mr, pre-teen, teen and Miss pageant for the last 20 years! I also have a list of all the winners from the teen pageants! There have been 22 including this year. There has been 51 Miss Hopkins county winners and 7 pre-teen winners. As you can see i know alot about this pageant. There is NO way that a girl did not do interview and win a Hopkins County pageant. Once again.. you lost, get over it.
ohh really

I believe that the pageants are rigged but i say this because in the past i have watched pageants with some of the most beautiful girls who never placed girls whos grandfather is on the fair board won.. and yes they were cute but no way by far the prettiest nor did they have the charisma

ok, first off, were you actually in the pageant with me? didnt think so, just attending and watching from the crowd doesnt mean you know, im telling you that girl wasnt there for sh*t. im most certainly not bitter about losing, i did them for fun only. plus, i won several other pageants in other counties. and why in the hell would you have lists of winners for the last 20 years?! you are either an obsessed wannabe, have no life, are a pedophile, or just plain stalker. perhaps you should find a hobby, so either way you look at this-apparently you are the loser. and why are you bashing me for my opinion when everyone else on here said the same thing-rigged.

1st off all this pagent talk is just nuts!!! Whether a childs Parent, Grandparent, Aunt, Cousin or whoever is on the fairboard.... that should make you have exclude them from it??? Evidentally you dont know much about children and how they learn from being up there, its hard on all those little fellers being in-front of all those people. I heard about this page just tonight and I had to see what all the hype was about... Well I found out that there are a few good people on here... but most of you just wanna give everybody a hard and hurtful time... I would watch my mouth cause someday Vdub... There will be a pagent in the sky and you better hope that your pretty enough to win Jesus over... Because it is apparent that you attitude is NOT! An idle mind is the devil's playground.. I applaude every little child that was on that stage that night... GOOOD JOB!!!!

I have a list because they put the names on the back of the programs. NO, i am not a pedophile or a stalker. And YES, you are bitter or you would not of come on here and made your comment. Yes, there was one other person that commented about it but they didn't go into details about how they were in a pageant.
Chrome, nice comment but just remember you don't have to be pretty to win over our Savior. God made each and every one of beautiful in one way or another.

Well, whatever you may not have to be beautiful to win over Jesus... But you have to be nice and not accuse people of WRONG doing unless you can walk up with the picture and prove it.. I have done some checking on this today.... and whoever said that the Little Miss won because her Grandfather was on the fair board is SO WRONG... How dare anyone speak about anything like that until the are sure of the facts! The little girl that won Little Miss.. her grandfather had been dead for about 6 or so years.. So until everyone knows the facts PLEASE dont hurt others... You dont know how you might have made that family feel, opening the wounds they already have missing that man... all I can say is shame.... shame.... shame... on anyone that go on here and tell things, that they arent sure about.... Its a disgrace to Hopkins County... Im embarrassed for you Ohh really....:-(

You don't win over salvation by bribing Jesus with your actions, Chrome. It's an act of grace and mercy. A beautiful gift. Not a single one of your actions no matter how sincere, are worthy of buying your salvation. They are all infected with some sort of selfishness or ill motivation. So putting on a pretty face or doing cartwheels or helping little old ladies across the street isn't going to get you into heaven.
This county is better than these posts. Can we not have debates and discussions without the low blows and foul play. Use education, punctuation, consideration and anything else that would lead you to act like a normal human. Respect one another. If the thing is rigged... why would you think so? ok, why not? Huh what supporting facts? Wow. That's a good point. I don't see it that way... etc.
Or, just keep being dogs and wondering why people call you b#tches.

File a complaint with the chamber of commerce. I'm sure they'll get right on it.

You ARE correct in what you've said here.In Counties where the Pageant is "Closed",that is where Non-Residents of that County are Not Allowed to compete,The Judges ARE brought in from other Counties.Now having said that, I can also say That having been called on to Judge Pageants in other Counties I have and most of my other "Co-Judging" counterparts are NOT told beforehand any info about the contestants.We get ALL of our information from the Entry forms that the Contestants Themselves fill out.

I'm sorry for the ones who didn't win a Title,(I refuse to say "Lost" because that Implies that the rest of the contestants were "Losers",So NOT true) but I have to AGREE WITH YOU.These Pageants are not rigged.I Personally don't give a damn who Their Parents are when I'm hired to judge a pageant. If They didn't show up or are late for ANY portion of the Contest it would have cost them some MAJOR points.Interview is almost 50% of the Pageant score. I had one girl who most everyone EXPECTED to win a pageant I judged. She was there for all of the Rehearsals,but did not do very well on the Interview portion, The "It's Rigged" because Their "Parents" or Family was "connected" with the Fair Pageant, card doesn't Fly with me and it only makes for "Sore Losers" What a shame for the rest of the Girls who have shown Good Sportsmanship.
