I'm certain we'll have some critics. However, I see little difference between our competition and more traditional teen pageants that glamorize and capitalize on the physical attractiveness of young people. I take that back. There may be one big difference. Do some pageants still have teens parading in front of millions of viewers in a bathing suit and high heels?"

Visitors to can grade photos from A+ to F, generating a grade point average for each teen photo. Each year in late spring, Varsity Members with a GPA of 3.0 or better are placed in random head-to-head match ups called a Hot Off(tm).
