A bevy of beauties - the ugly face of murder!
Just Spent (male part)
The host for the evening is charming but over-excitable and reckless. He is maniacally charming and now that he seems to have put his gambling past behind him, the whole town of Spent is proud of their most famous son. But is all as rosy as he says?
Miss Take is not what you would call a beauty; the hamlet of Little Take has a total population of seven, including Beaver the Dog, Miss Take's best friend. She is very awkward and keeps making inappropriate comments.
Odds on favourite to win the competition, stunning and confident sex therapist Miss Aisle has revolutionised the lives of the women of Aisle with her unique line in sex toy parties. She often carries her merchandise on her person as she would never want to miss an opportunity to liberate womankind.
Miss Adventure, from the upper class seaside resort of Adventure is a world renowned archer and all round good egg. Head girl at the local school, Olympic team member, rich and popular her life belies her humble roots and the dark secrets of her past.
Currently training for the Five Peaks Octathlon, Miss Fit, is the aptly chosen candidate for the village of Fit End. She is fiercely competitive and determined to win everything she puts her mind to.
The chosen entrant from the town of Not Much Behaven sees herself as a bit of a comic, and spends her time trying to think of ways to get one over on others. Though she is young, she is a veteran of the beauty pageant world, having been winner of Miss Junior Chow Down ten years ago.
A very secretive and classy entrant, she plays her cards close to her DD chest, but is an open secret that she is a professional mistress with a contract to publish her diaries.
Little Tique is the spiritual home of this child of nature. She loves to be close to the stone circle there, and naked moonlight dancing is her version of clubbing on a Saturday night. Her natural outfits have caused a stir.
Miss Treat, from the beautiful village of Lower Treat, made her name for being more beautiful outside than in. She has a habit of stealing other people's boyfriends and thinks the beauty world is beneath her.
She has entered every beauty competition from Spent to Much Leading but her success rate is precisely zero. As result she has become bitter and cynical about the beauty pageant world, and delights in the misery of others.
Very young and excitable, she loves playing jokes and believes she is popular. Actually, her only real friend is Miss Behaven.
Surprise entrant who people suspect may be here by underhand means! She's a bit of a tale-teller, largely about her "natural" beauty.
Miss Conduct has a chequered past. She was expelled from both secondary schools in High Conduct and ended up being home educated by a tutor whom she subsequently seduced. She holds the Spent record for drinking a yard of ale in the shortest time – which she won on her 13thbirthday.
The entrant from Never-Knowling-Undersold-in-the-Wold, Miss Sold is a jewellery designer looking for her chance to shine. She is launching her own brand of earrings for dogs and she is confident she’s headed for the big time. Winning would be the chance to launch her collection.
Miss Guided (male or female part)
Miss Guided is no shrinking violet. She aspires to be a superstar and she recently got a record deal but she was dropped before she even had a chance to sing a note. She sees the beauty competition as a way to make it big in showbiz. But she hides a dark secret that might see her disqualified from the competition!
Miss Judged is the bossiest of the queens by far. She is training to be a teacher and needs to win so that she can fund her post graduate conversation. She has returned to Greater Deciding from university and thinks herself better than the other queens. She applied to be a judge on the panel for the competition.
On the surface Miss Appropriate seems like just any another beauty queen. She is attractive and stylish but she doesn’t like to stick out...because she is a professional thief. She only entered the competition because she got caught thieving make-up and said she was doing it because she was desperate to enter and needed supplies for the event.
Let murder commence!
