Michael Galanes, Pageant Director "Little Miss Perfect Pageant"
Time to grab your sashes and crowns WE tv's original one-hour docu-series LITTLE MISS PERFECT returns for its second season, exploring the ins and outs of the junior beauty pageant world and revealing behind the scenes footage of the families, contestants and professional experts who participate. Once upon a time, there was a little boy born and raised in the mountains of Vermont, but he knew his calling was the sparkly stage, somewhere, somehow. Every morning, he would put on a different record of his favorite musical in his kitchen and perform the entire show, he knew every word to every song... and that performance, Ladies and Gentlemen, proved to be the highlight of his day! Graduating from Providence College, he moved to Orlando to perform at Walt Disney World! It was the perfect job for Galanes, as he had the opportunity to work with princesses every day, a precursor of his life to come! In 1997, Michael founded Little Miss Citrus, a National Children's Beauty Pageant. The event is still very active and popular today. He also interviewed with NBC/Donald Trump Productions and was hired, position: State Director for Miss Vermont USA/Teen USA. Michael also still serves as the State Director for Illinois American Coed Pageant as well as Mrs. Florida International. He has coached literally hundreds to pageant fame. Michael has served as a national spokesperson for many companies to include Toyota, Proctor and Gamble and is an active commercial print and television actor. One of his most prized memories was traveling to Greece (his father was Greek) for an entire season to model abroad with Pro Model Management. In a 2009, Michael worked with P. Ditty, Danity Kane, and day 26 in MTV's Making the Band 4. Mr. Galanes lived in the Miami mansion and served as the Den Mother for the two musical groups (he equates his role on the show to that of Alice on the Brady Bunch) So, get out your best outfit, tease your hair and settle in for the new season of LITTLE MISS PERFECT, kicking-off Tuesday, January 12 at 10pm ET/PT

A recent study conducted by TWIX found that it would be easier for college students to give up their significant other than spend a WEEK without their cell phones, Internet or any other form of technology!).
Because TWIX is known for helping people take time from their daily routines both on- and off-campus to chew things over, they thought it might be fun to explore the evolution of the collegiate especially with finals and a new semester looming around the corner. The study compares what todayâ€™s college students deem to be most important compared to alumni from 10, 20 and even 30 years ago. Other findings of the survey include (but are not limited to): Two in five named the Internet and social media as the number one thing they could not live without Only FOUR percent cited the library as a campus necessity
