And The Winners Are....

About a week ago we had our first annual Miss Pacific Beach Contest at PB Bar & Grill which turned out to be a HUGE success! It was nine months in the making and despite some of the behind-the-scenes hiccups and a few last minute staff changes, it went off without a hitch! In fact, many people complimented us about how fun and exciting it was. Even PB Bar & Grill was impressed and told us so. I, myself, am truly proud of how well it went.

Charity Hodges won the Grand Prize and if you saw her overall performance - she deserved it! And so did Tiffany Keller and Rachel Swanson who took second and third. And there were so many others that were beautiful and charming that deserved to win as well. I really felt bad for some of them because in any other bikini contest they probably would have won. It’s just this one had so much competition.

Prior to the contest date, we really wanted our Facebook fans to be involved, so we decided on a judging format were we let them vote for their favorite contestants on Facebook. Then those results would be handed to the official judges on the night of the event for their consideration.

The judging format proved to be so successful that we decided to incorporate it into all of our future contests! A few of our Facebook fans misunderstood the judging process and thought that we would pick the winner solely based on Facebook votes, but then what would be the point of holding a contest at PB Bar & Grill? …and who would have wanted us to choose Miss Pacific Beach from a photo?

Of course, when you have a major event like this with the kind of prizes we were offering, you're bound to get those who didn't like the turn out. Anyway, that kind of stuff happens in the big leagues and this was no “ordinary” bikini contest - it was “extraordinary”...it was the Miss Pacific Beach Contest!

And it is so appropriate that Miss Pacific Beach is named "Charity" since one of her first orders of business will be to attend the walk to help the homeless youth of San Diego at the PhotoCharity event. She will also be hosting our big annual Halloween party this year!

I want to thank all those who made it such a GREAT event - including PB Bar & Grill, all of our fans who turned out and on Facebook, and especially certain members of my staff who stepped up to the plate and made it happen!

Now it's time to prepare for Halloween and see if we can outdo last year's party! Like we say - "The PB Reality Show - it's about celebrating life!"

The Miss Pacific Beach Contest

We are just days away from our first annual Ms PB contest coming to PB Bar & Grill on Wednesday, September 14th and you can feel the excitement building! Last year we had a bikini contest at Typhoon's Saloon and it was such a great success we thought we would take it up a notch. This year I decided to call it the Miss Pacific Beach Contest and instead of a $1000 grand prize, I decided to up it to $3000! Furthermore, I plan to make this an annual event and make it part of the PB Reality Show.

I have to admit the whole process is lots of fun. With all the interviews from all those who want to be contestants and all those who want to be a part of our staff - you know it's going to be a GREAT event!! And my assistants and I are enjoying every minute of it. What's more, it's all being filmed and will be part of the first episode that debuts in January!

Our Facebook page is blowing up and has just surpassed 7,700 fans and counting! Which isn't bad considering we just started our fan page a few months ago! (Apologies for using exclamation marks so often but it's all so very exciting! - There, I did it again.) Anyway, we are always coming up with new creative ways to draw in more fans to our page. The latest one was a big hit. We asked people to tell us their favorite charity on our wall. If they get the most "Likes" they win $100! In addition, I give their charity $100 as well. Of course, I give away far more to charity (as you can see at www.pbmillionairecharity.com) but this is just a clever way to get more fans and they get paid for helping their charity and their charity gets paid as well. I would call that a win-win-win situation!

The whole idea is to get as many fans as possible so when the show airs in January, we already have a fan base established. It's called "pre-marketing." The big established movie studios do it when they come out with a major film. However, with the advent of Facebook and Youtube, what we are doing is rather cutting-edge as far as reality shows go. We will have a good-sized fan base when the first episode is released - which to my knowledge no one has ever done. In other words, we give you little sneak previews on Youtube and Facebook that help you understand the concept and give you the general vibe of the show so when it actually airs we will have a large and eager viewership.

So welcome aboard all you new fans! And look forward to episode one in January! K?
