Interview/Personal Introduction:

  • Examples of questions that may be asked:
    • "What is your favorite animal and why?"
    • "What do you like to do for fun?"
    • "What is your biggest goal in life?"


  • Talent is now incorporated into the final show. Talent is still optional and will not factor into the participants' score. 
  • At the end of the show, girls who participated in talent will receive an additional medal for their efforts!
