Each Contestant will compete in three equal phases of competition: swimsuit, evening gown, and interview. The scores from the three phases of competition are added up, and the contestants with the highest composite scores become semifinalists. The number of semifinalists will be determined by the total number of contestants in the competition.
Scoring is based on:
Swimsuit: each contestant is evaluated on her physical fitness, stage-presence, and overall impression.
Evening Gown: each contestant is evaluated on grace, poise, style, stage presence, the confidence with which she carries herself, and overall-impression.
Interview: preliminary interviews are personal one-on-one style. You will have five-minute interviews with each of the five judges. It’s very comfortable and conversational. Contestants are scored on their communication skills, and personality. They are NOT scored on their opinions or personal beliefs.
The finalists will then each have a final on-stage question. After each contestant has answered her question, the judges will make their final rankings based on their overall impression of each contestant. The judges will select a winner, 1st runner-up, 2nd runner-up..
