The Miss Neo Pageant Personal Interview

Q: How do you measure success?

Did I get on TV for it? How much money did I make? Do strangers talk to me about it?

Q: When is the last time you failed? How did you handle it?

I didn’t brush my cat for over a month and yesterday she puked twice due to complications arising from a hairball. I sent my roommate a sad face emoticon and vowed to be a better cat mom. I brushed her last night.

Q: What do you see when you look in the mirror?

When I look in the mirror I see a bright shining star…unless I have zits. Then I just see zits.

Q: How are you different from the other contestants?

I am taller than them.

Q: Why do you want to win this pageant?

I want to win this pageant so I can brag to my friends about it.

Tickets for The Miss Neo Pageant are available online. Come watch Miss Indiana get dirt in her skirt this summer.
