The contestants must prepare an evening look for themselves, a swimwear look for their gay counterpart (be as creative or sexy as possible), perform their fabulous talent in the performance portion, and finally answer important questions about gay issues and culture.
The Miss Fag Hag Pageant celebrity judges will score each segment of the competition based on originality, creativity and entertainment value. Our judges are Caroline Rhea from NBC’s The Biggest Loser and Sabrina the Teenage Witch, The Village Voice’s very own Michael Musto, Hedda Lettuce who made a splash on Project Runway last season and Katina Corroa who portrayed a fruit fly in the film Daddy, as seen on HBO and Logo. All decisions made by the judges will be FINAL. Before the The Miss Fag Hag Pageant winner is selected, the audience will give a wild card vote for the winner, and this vote will be tabulated along with the scores from the judges. Every The Miss Fag Hag Pageant contestant will win prizes for her involvement. Go to www.missfaghag.com to see the growing list of prizes that will be offered from our fierce sponsors!
