My daughter and I have been testing it by dressing our webkinz in the exact same clothes and entering the pageant. I am 2 badge or more above her in every class yet she has outscored me in every pageant!
have you won any yet?

I thought it would improve our odds and i am not good at the academy stuff. It takes a lot of time too. If I enjoyed it more I'd do it but I like collecting rares better.

No, we haven't won any yet. My daughter has been first out of the 5 she gets to watch several times but none of us have placed in the top 10.

In our household I have the most academy education but I consistently score 12 total in the pageant. My daughter on the other hand scores in the 20's every time she is in the pageant but yet that is never enough to place in the top 10.

I really wish the scores of the top 10 would be posted so that we could see what we need to get to win. Or better yet, maybe they could send the kinz post that it promises everytime we enter. ???

only one pet needs to do the academy for all to have access to the actions so I don't think it matters whether the particular pet you enter int pageant is the one that does the classes

tutoring is an automatic pass, the classes are super easy to start but they get harder

I posted some scores and pictures in the following thread:

http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...t267808p7.html

See posts 69 on page 7 and post 71 & 72 on page 8 (if you can't find them let me know, they may merge 2 threads together, and if they do, then the pages and post numbers will be off).

The scoring that I saw seemed to contradict where a pet placed in the pageant. I am not sure if the pets get scored multiple times for multiple rounds. Right now, the scoring seems to be random, and so do the winners! There is really no way for us to tell for sure. I wish Ganz would give more information about the scoring. It is really interesting that I scored higher than some of the pets that were in the top 10 (from the scores that I witnessed); but I did not make it into the top ten. This leads me to believe that there must be multiple rounds, and we only see one of the rounds with 5 of the pets.

Since they upped the number of participants to 5000, they should also up the number of winners!!!

It is fun to watch, but now you only get 3 chances in 5000 to win a ribbon.

I'm not sure the scores you see when watching even help determine who wins. I was in the 4pm competition and the 7pm competition. If you look at the schedule and view the results of the 7pm competition you will see in 4th place Fle with Rufus, in 7th place lov with Hayden, and in 10th place stj with Gracie. Those were 3 of the pets I saw when I watched my pet. lov with Hayden scored 20 points according to what I watched, yet they are in 7th place behind Fle with Rufus who only scored 18 points when I was watching. And also my pet scored 17 and stj with Gracie only scored 11 while I was watching. So obviously the winner is not determined by the points the judges show us. I'm entered in the 10PM competition also, so I will see if this happens again in that one. I would feel better about spending the 25kc to enter the competition if Ganz would give us some idea how they determine the winner.

I have tried many times to enter the pageant, but it always says it's full. Am I doing something wrong? I wait for the button to turn green and click on it immediately. Is there a step I'm missing? Thanks!

I can't even get it to BE green. I did once and it told me there wasn't an event. Well, why is it the right time and saying there was? I gave up after a week. I'm going to try again eventually.

Tutoring will help you improve your skills, if you don't know how to do that class =]

I would say it's worth it.
