The Mrs. Alaska United States® pageant is affiliated with the national Mrs. United States pageant. Eligibility requirements for competitors: “The Mrs. Alaska pageant requires its competitors to be at least 21 years old, a property owner or resident of Alaska, and married (no specific length of marriage is necessary). Contestants are judged on 1/4 personal interview, 1/4 swim wear, 1/4 evening gown and 1/4 on-stage question. Besides the overall title, contestants may compete in various optional competitions.”
I understand that in order to qualify as a competitor in the Mrs. Alaska United States pageant, I must abide by the following rules:
§ Entrant must be married and living with her husband.
§ Entrant must be at least 21 years of age.
§ Entrant agrees that the decisions of the judges are final.
§ Entrant must be of good moral character.
§ Entrant must be a citizen of the United States.
Entrant is defined as a naturally-born female meeting the criteria outlined in the rules and regulations.
Our Sarah is definitely over 21 and lives with the dude.
Her Personnel Board would take care of the good moral character bit.
Citizen of the United States or Alaska? Hmmm... should be OK.
The only problem would be accepting the decisions of the judges as final in case she fails yet again!
As long as the on-stage question is not about what she reads, our Sarah should be in with a chance...
If Sarah finally wins, she would be able to hang out with charming, trim guys and attend gay bashing rallies. Oh, and wear red! The t-shirt would go very well with her Franco Sarto shoes.
