Miss Pallas Athena Beauty Pageant Brings in a Large Crowd

March 10, 2012

Reporters Daana Kira and Rakiko Lowtide attended the Miss Pallas Athena Beauty Pageant one of the forerunners to the Miss Galaxy Pageant.

Interestingly a large number of Togruta attended

Several systems are having their local pageants to determine the brightest faced and most talented to sent to the Miss Galaxy Pageant being held later this year. Tonight’s pageant was held to determine who would win the Miss Pallas Athena crown. Hosted by Kaelinn X and by DJ Shade, the pageant was broken up into three contests, a swimsuit, a talent, and a an evening wear with interview parts. The judge votes were then added to that of the audience to name a winner and runner-up. For this particular night the judges were former Republic Chancellor Baccus Altus, NightSister High Mother Lady Kia, and Shaka the Hutt.

Competing in the contest were the cyborg Nora Saria, the Twil’ek Sehea, the Twil’ek Nawa, a Sith pureblood Lisa, the golden-skinned Raven, the Chiss Citrine, and the Twi’lek Pala. All came for their chance at the Pallas Athena crown as well as 1000 credits in winnings and most coveted of all a chance to compete in the Miss Galaxy Contest.

First up was the Swimwear contest where each came out in a suit designed to entice and tease the judges as well as the audience. Many of the contestants also used body movements to flirt with the judges while others adorably and shyly showed off for the audience.

Probably the most spectacular part of the pageant was the talent portion with several of the talents putting the judges and at one point the entire audience in danger. First up was Nora who came out to showing her slicing abilities by arming a bomb she then needed to hack to disarm. However first she played “Green Bird” on the flute before disarming the bomb to everyone’s relief. Sehea was up next to perform her dance and knife throwing talent giving the judges a first hand taste as a knife embedded into their table right in front of each. Also dancing with dangerous equipment was the well-known racer Pala who danced with her fire stick. To continue the theme Raven came out with her two lightsabers and used them in a dance display to show off her prowess.

Nawa showing off his dance moves

Citrine then came out with two plushes that used in her comedic ventriloquist act with such jokes as “When did Anakin’s Jedi teachers know he was going bad? – When? – In the Sith grade.” She was then followed by the mechanic and majordomo Nawa, who incidentally was the only male in the contest as well. He performed a very complex dance that seemed to please the Judges. To continue the theme of using dangerous object like some of her predecessors, the Smuggler Paradise cantina manager Lisa juggled several objects from knives to flaming sticks.

In the final part each contestant came out in their evening gowns and answered the questions “What planet would you suggest the ex Chancellor visit, now that he has retired from public life, and why?” and “If indeed you had a choice between fighting for your own people or speaking for them in a seat politically; which would you decide on?” Nora began this round by stating she would have him visit Dantooine because of the peaceful nature and that she was much more a talker than a fighter though she would fight if necessary. Next Sehea stated the Chancellor should take a wild vacation on Zeltros and said she was really a negotiator rather than a fighter. Nawa also suggested a peaceful heavily forested planet to help the Chancellor calm and also replied he was a talker rather than a fighter also but would do anything to help his friends.

Continuing, Raven suggested the Chancellor should visit Nar Shaddaa to experience Hutt entertainment and stated her skilled were in fighting rather than negotiating. Citrine also stated she would fight alongside her people as an example and suggested that Naboo would be a natural calming planet for the Chancellor to visit. Lastly Pala stated Baccus should visit her favourite place of Mos Entha due to the pd racing and said she would fill any role to help her people or friends.

The Judges the made final notes on their scoring while the audience gave their votes to the DJ. Once everything was tallied the contestants were called back. Raven was declared the runner-up while Nawa was declared the winner securing his place in the Miss Galaxy Pageant. GNN congratulates all the contestants and the fine job each put on.

    Slightly confused on how a guy wins a miss contest but that is fairly humorous and slightly degrading for the other contestants
