The Miss Farmington Pageant is a contest held every year in Downtown Farmington to determine who will get to be the city's equivalent of Miss America for the parade held in June every year. The following is an overview of what happened in the 2010 pageant, which was captured to video as a segment for the SWOCC Studios Special Events Show.
A bunch of girls from the nearby high school showed up, and tried to get an unbreathable theater to vote in their favor in the hopes one of them would replace Miss Farmington 2009. Some guest singers performed, the previous Miss Farmington did a speech about her life, the girls wore a lot of different clothes, and Jenny won the contest.
With only 12 minutes of useful footage allowed on the tape, selections for what got recorded had to be chosen very carefully. Parents at the event were extremely sensitive to any responses about their little darlings, so the contest bent over backwards to be as "inoffensive and friendly" as possible. Abusing the camera crews, however, was free game for the audience.
Connection with Farmington IdolEdit
There was some speculation that the judging was rigged for Farmington Idol. While Jenny was one of the preferred pics overall, the popular vote went to someone else. Jenny herself has claimed to not know of any actual rigging, however, believing it was "a pleasant coincidence" that she won both. Even so, she made the town more than happy with her role as both Miss and Idol winner.
Number below is based on a rough estimate of expenses, assumption of city government funding being involved, and vanity of project as a whole. Results below may be skewered. However, do to the low score, there is little chance that a movement to end the contest will occur any time soon.
