Smith successor of notorious bad girl Miss USA 2006, Tara Conner is starring in MTVs new reality series Pageant Place, which depicts the life and duties of Smith and her roommates, Miss Universe Riyo Mori and Miss Teen USA Katie Blair.
And while viewers may get to see the gorgeous girls in their crowns, sashes, and makeup, Smith insists being a pageant queen isnt all glitz and glamour.
Says Smith: People think were just pretty girls who won titles. They see us once a year, when we win our crowns, and thats it. Pageant Place will show what happens after we win our pageants and how many responsibilities we have. Our job is tough, just like any other job.
But Smith whos struggling to disassociate herself from the former Miss USAs [Conners] tarnished image knows exactly how to handle her beauty duty.
She explains, Im trying to be myself and focus on making my impact with my own projects. The class of 2007 is now in session and we dont need to worry about the past.
Pageant Place premieres October 10 on MTV.
