This pageant is important because it gives the guys a chance to have some fun with pageants. It gives everyone a good laugh and you can do funny things you normally wouldn’t do,” senior and Mr. Silver Fox Evan Major said.

Most of the guys that participated in the pageant said they thoroughly enjoyed themselves while competing against each other, saying the process was smooth and very fun.

“A lot of people said that it was fun and funny to watch. Since I got an invitation to do it, I figured I’d participate,” Mr. Junior Braxton Carr said. “I’m glad someone thought of me to do it. It was a fun experience and I’m happy I got to do it with the funniest guys in school.”

The Mr. Silver Fox pageant included a variety of categories for the contestants to perform in such as open dance, formal wear and casual wear.

“Opening dance, we worked pretty hard on trying to remember the steps the ladies in Student Council taught us, and it was fun to see the guys I’ve never seen dance before and actually get out there and bust out some moves,” Braxton said.

Compared to previous pageants, this year’s pageant was a lot more fun to watch and a bit more organized.

“The people in this pageant were a lot more entertaining than last year, definitely a lighter atmosphere,” sophomore Stephen Wise said.

Most of the contestants that participated in the pageant explained that they saw it last year and thought it would be fun to do.  

“[I did the pageant] Because it was my senior year and I figured that I might as well go out with a bang,” Mr. Senior Hunter Coates said.

Mr. Silver Fox is something that the contestants would definitely compete in again if possible.

“I regret not doing it when I had the opportunity junior and sophomore year,” Evan said.

While the guys that competed believe that it is a fun experience, they want others to experience the pageant for themselves

“I think this is a one time thing, it was fun while it lasted but I think it’s time for other guys to get out on stage and show the Dutch Fork community what they’ve got,” Braxton said

The 2016 Mr. Silver Fox himself Evan Major seemed to really enjoy competing in this year’s pageant. He wasn’t expecting to be crowned as the winner and is honored to have won the pageant.

“It was great,” Evan said. “I really wasn’t expecting to win, so it caught me off guard. It was a great experience.”
