List of beauty pageants

Page semi-protected
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A beauty pageant or beauty contest is a competition that has traditionally focused on judging and ranking the physical attributes of the contestants. Pageants have now evolved to include inner beauty, with criteria covering judging of personality, intelligence, talent, character, and charitable involvement, through private interviews with judges and answers to public on-stage questions. The term beauty pageant refers originally to the Big Four international beauty pageants.[1][2][3] Pageant titles are subdivided into Miss, Mrs or Ms, and Teen – to clearly identify the difference between pageant divisions. Similar events for men or boys are usually called by other names and are more likely to be bodybuilding contests.
