It took about 3 months for Exotifit International Inc to put together a beauty pageant competition for the first time ever. The event was held on Friday, May 20, 2011 at the Universal Hilton in Universal City, CA from 6 pm to 2am. The set up crew were the first to arrive at the Ballroom C&D at Universal Hilton located next to the famous Universal Studios.
During the event they featured 5 red carpets with about 100 media outlet representatives and close to 1000 guests. Some of the sponsors were also able to display items for the silent auction that was held during the show.
“I want to thank every single beautiful people who came and graced our event. It was a tremendous success, we are still in euphoric state! We will send out our thank you’s in the following days. I want you to know that we at Exotifit always recognize those who support and help us. We love you and more to come from Exotifit!” Said Maria Amor, Event Producer.
The Ms. Exoti-Lady World Pageant 2011 judges, some sponsors and celebrities arrived in a limo where they were interviewed and photographed on the red carpet. Something different was that on the event media wall there were most of the sponsor’s logos and some celebrities’ images. The event emcees were Anne Judson-Yager & Jesse Jam Miranda, who kept the audience entertained during the entire show.
“Thank you Maria and Exotifit, All the Pageants, the media, my friends, Edy and the supporters. I really love you all. It’s a dream come true”. Said Samira Kazemeni Ms. Exoti Lady World Pageant 2011 Winner.
The show’s rundown was as follows. First the Ms. Exoti-Lady World Pageant 2011 opened the night with a special dance performance, and then Shane Atoms, top 90 contestant from American Idol season 10 and The Exoti-Angels took the stage and performed a couple of hit songs. The contestants came back on stage to compete in the swimsuit competition. The judges were introduced and then event producer Maria Amor spoke at the event and introduced author Jeraldine Saunders as the event’s guest speaker. Then Exoti-Lady returned to compete in the fashion wear competition, followed by a special performance by Justin Chase. After Justin Chase, the contestants returned to compete in the evening gown competition. Justin Chase was back to serenade the candidates. Special awards were presented to the candidates and finally the winner of Ms. Exoti-Lady World Pageant 2011 was announced.

“The program was well organized. The sheer amount of detailed work going into this pageant and the success of its outcome is reason to celebrate. I think future event planners need to learn from the team of creative minds who worked so tirelessly to make this pageant what it was” said Cklara Moradian.
She concluded, “I was moved while being entertained. The Exoti-ladies blew everyone away. To torture a cliche, I was truly inspired. If at the age of 40, I have the strength, courage, and gorgeous body of the women of the Exoti-World pageant, I will feel like a queen. It has motivated me to work on my health and get into a better shape so that one day I can inspire other young women and encourage them to take care of themselves. Maria Amor is the embodiment of the entrepreneurial spirit and I am honored to have met her.”
