An Exclusive Look At Miss Montana USA: Part 2

Posted: Updated:

In the first part of our series, we gave you a look at the Miss Montana USA pageant, including the two young ladies who took home the crown.  Buying a ticket and attending the event can give you the same show, so in the second part, we're giving you an exclusive behind-the-scenes look.

More goes into this competition than a couple hours of dresses, walking, dancing and smiles.  Preparations begin months in advance, and it's not just dress shopping.

The contestants start their weekend at full speed.  Constant rehearsals for the dance numbers and walkthroughs for the show keep them on their toes.  Scoring begins early as contestants each get a two minute session with judges where they're asked a wide variety of questions.  They top that off with a spur of the moment photo shoot.

The girls get some break time to eat and bond with each other, but as soon as friendships form, they remember they're also having fun with the same girls they're competing against.

Once the competition gets started, the young ladies put all their preparation to work.  While they try to keep a cheerful mood, nerves can sometimes get the best of them and even lead to near disaster…like a fall.  But these women are poised and ready to recover.

And while the contestants have to continue improving to advance to each round by focusing on their fundamentals, a few common issues have to be dealt with like getting enough sleep.

Only two girls can go home with the crown, but the competitors try to have fun in the meantime.

Now that you have a better idea of how pageants run behind the scenes, it's important to see the event through the eyes of a contestant.  Tune in tomorrow for an exclusive one on one interview with our own third runner up Elise Jesse.  You won't want to miss it.
