My niece competed this August 2012 in the Americas Perfect Pageant, which turned out to be a huge waste of her time and monetary investment due to fraud, deception and misrepresentation on behalf of Michael Gallanes and his Americas Perfect Pageant staff, including phoney fake judges.
I attended every night of competition for my lovely niece who is more stunning and has more modeling and natural beauty and talent than 99% of any of the contestants combined, she is also represented by one of the top model management companies in the world.
I have very strong evidence against the ethics of this Americas Perfect Pageants organization, as I video-taped the judges sitting there each night of competition for the contestants and not one of them was using a pen or pencil or anything to note a score for the young ladies they were suppose to be judging.
These judges were merely puppets paid to act as if they were judging when in fact they were not. It is also a known fact that each of the the ladies pays for ads in the program book to promote her state name and title as a contestant.
I noticed the top 15 and final 5 were the ones who spent the most money....many of them had no real modeling talent or even potential whatsoever, except one of them, who will need to come back the next year and spend more money in order to PAY for her to win.
The new winner this year bought and paid a huge price for her to capture her title.. This pageant is clearly a huge money making greedy scam.
My niece didn't need to be there as she has more professional industry contacts than the owners and staff combined. Had we known what a huge fraud this would of been we would not have invested the money for travel, hotel and fashion wardrobe for an event that does not even have any true concept of what true fashion and beauty modeling is about.
My hope is that for any parents and contestant to think twice and do their background searches on Michael Gallanes and Americas Perfect Pageants via Youtube and internet before spending a penny on a huge money making scam that this Americas Perfect Pageant is.
My media report is about exposing a dishones and fraudulent pageant that is based on money and greed and the choosing of some young ladies who truly could never ever be a professional model as their finalists and winners. More to come.
America's Perfect Pageants are the worst scam I have ever witnessed. This type of pre-fixed pageants and pre-arranged to who they have chosen to win before the actual pageant happens is what gives the pageantry industry a very bad name. America's Perfect Pageant should be ASHAMED of themselves for this money making scamgpageantry/fashion-modeling business with no ethics.
