The police caught him before he could strike, but wondered if there was any way he might have been able to deduce the target before the attempt. Naturally Henry demonstrated that there was with the clue centring on the fact the Miss Globe contest had entrants representing geographical regions as well as countries.

* {{Drag Queen}}s have their own pageants, usually held by individual {{gay bar}}s[[note]]Whenever a bar closes, the winner of their last pageant will carry the lifelong title of "Miss [Bar] Eternal"[[/note]], though there are regional and national competitions as well. In the United States, the four highest-level drag pageants are Miss Gay America, Miss US of A, Miss Continental, and Entertainer of the Year. It's interesting to note that many of these pageant have a separate weight class for {{BBW}}'s, such as "Miss US of A ''At Large''". One smaller-scale pageant worth mention is Miss'd America, which was started in 1993 by the stylists and costumers from Miss America--almost entirely gay men who did drag in their free time--wanting to have some fun of their own and celebrate their community.

* There seems to be an explosion of [[RealityShow reality TV]] featuring particularly {{egregious}} examples of how terrible beauty pageants can be -- a notable example being ''Series/ToddlersAndTiaras'' -- though, to the participants, it's SeriousBusiness.

# Whether you're contestant or one of the pageant organizers, there's a lot of work/time/effort that goes into preparing for a beauty pageant--for many women/girls who regularly compete in pageants, they've probably been doing for literally years.
# While looks are certainly a strong factor when it comes to choosing a winner in a beauty pageant, beauty pageants do generally take more than just looks into consideration when it comes to actually choosing a winner.
Also, if it's a women's-only pageant and there ends up being [[GenderBender any men]] [[AttractiveBentGender disguised as women]], they'll usually end up doing relatively well--at least until they get caught and are subsequently disqualified because of their gender.

** Originally, Mr. Spacely was going to be the judge and wore a domino mask so he could be advertised as "The Mystery Judge". While signing autographs before the pageant, his wife found out and hauled him off, and George had to take over as judge in his place.

In fiction, if there is a StrawFeminist in the regular cast, she ''will'' complain about how she finds this sort of thing to be sexist and demeaning..

A staple of pop culture, a beauty contest/pageant is a competition where people--usually women but there are a few that feature men--are judged by their physical appearance and social grace. In most pageants, contestants are expected to model an [[PimpedOutDress evening gown]] and a swimsuit[[note]]The swimsuit portion may be omitted if the pageant features underage girls[[/note]], display a performance talent, and answer an interview question about a current hot topic (it's not their opinion itself that's judged, but their ability to diplomatically express their beliefs). Expect the winner to be given a [[CoolCrown rhinestone tiara]], sash, and scepter (and/or a bouquet of flowers) while the host sings her praises.
