** Guess what country won the crown? That's right, the Philippines!

Philippines! (It's for reasons like this (other things include the Catholic majority and the Spanish names) that the Philippines has a reputation for feeling like a Latin American country stuck in Asia.)

* ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' has Miss Magix in the first season, with both beauty and talent portions, a strict no-magic rule, and [[HilarityEnsues the Trix sabotaging the talent portion]]. Stella is the runner-up to Lucy, who had the Trix' help to become beautiful with magic... [[KickTheDog And has the Trix give her back her true looks immediately after she's crowned]].
** There are two rather funny particulars not mentioned above: first, one of the contestants of Miss Magix looks identical to Aisha (who debuted the following season), the series' resident tomboy; second, the public includes Faragonda and Griselda, two powerful and experienced fairies, ''seated next to the Trix'', implying that ''their sabotage may have been part of the contest''.

* ''ThePerpetualAquarium'' did a "Petpets in Tiaras" spoof of the current trend in reality shows to show children's pageants.
* ''RPGWorld'' did one combining it with BeachEpisode, and of course Hero turns out to be the [[AttractiveBentGender attractive redhead who received a third of the votes to win]].

* {{Drag Queen}}s have pageants of their own, the four highest-level drag pageants in the United States being Miss Gay America, Miss US of A, Miss Continental, and Entertainer of the Year. Fans of ''Series/RupaulsDragRace'' will remember the Miss Gay America pageant as a source of drama in Season 5. Alyssa Edwards had won the pageant but was dethroned for failing to fulfill her obligations, and the crown went to runner-up Coco Montrese. Since both queens appeared on the show that season, their rivalry became a driving conflict. Besides them, several other contestants from the show have competed in pageants as well.

* ''EarthGirlsAreEasy'' - Julie Brown, singing "'Cause I'm a Blonde" in a beach movie setting, snatches a tiara off a "Blonde of the Month" beauty contest winner along with her blonde wig, revealing her as a - horrors - brunette.

* Book 4 of ''TheFaerieQueene'': [[HalfHumanHybrid Satyrane]] holds a tournament to determine the strongest, most-skilled knight, followed by a beauty contest for the knights' ladies. The prizes for the winners would be... each other! The beauty contest entrants are judged not only for their beauty but their [[MyGirlIsNotASlut purity]] and are tested by a magic girdle that can [[VirginPower only be worn by a virgin]]. The judges apparently don't share the author's views on chastity, however, and stubbornly declare a princess (who's really a clone -- long, sad story) the winner over the one girl the girdle will fit. The winning knight passes up the prize due to being secretly a SweetPollyOliver.

* ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVI'' features such a contest for rare gear and an optional party member. Sadly, there are no graphics, so you'll just have to imagine the sight of Carver sashaying around in nothing put boxer shorts and a pot lid. There's also some PingPongNaivete displayed by your friends, who wonder why [[PantyShot one creep likes to sit right next to the edge and look up...]]
