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.
