Congratulations to Beth Weems Pirtle, a 74-year-old pageant winner! North Texas resident Pirtle entered the American Dreams Pageant in the senior division in New Orleans and took home the crown. So how did she do it and what does she think about her win?

A modest Pirtle said, “When they finally announce your name, it’s always like, ‘Oh.”

So why did Beth decide to enter a beauty pageant at her age? Well, apparently Beth is an old pro. Not only has she taken home this title, but she competed in the Miss Texas Senior Pageant and won. But that was back in the late 90’s.

Beth explained, “I never ever thought that I would compete again. It was the first time they had had a senior division and I thought, ‘Oh, now I can wear my new dress’.” She proudly added, “My new Terry Costa dress won best evening dress of all the evening dresses.”

Unfortunately for those of you wondering if Pirtle had to don a bikini for the competition, that would be a big fat no. Instead, Beth had to showcase her body in aerobic wear. Other areas Beth had to compete in were interview, evening gown and on-stage question.

Congratulations Beth Weems Pirtle! Let Beth be an inspiration to all you 70 somethings to get out there and flaunt what you got.
