My sister was going to compete in the LA pageant last year. We paid everything out of pocket and made sure to get all the extras that they suggested to help her in every way.
The first meeting we went to was a waste of time! It was basically the first money gauging and faux training to "empower young girls". The second meeting consisted at more money gauging and "training" you how to walk and talk at the pageant. The two people in charge looked like they had just gotten up and put the first thing they saw on.
When we got to the main event in some rinky dinky hotel meeting rooms, it reeked of desperation from women trying to relive their youth. Their registration lines were a mess and there was no consistency in customer service. Some people looked like they were going to court and others like they were on their way to the grocery store. One of the women i went to talk to in regards to the issues wasn't even wearing shoes!!!!!
Complete Joke!!! We didn't stay for the event and tried to get a hold of CS but no one has gotten back to me regarding a refund.
Save your money don't do it!!!! ***
