I wasn't the typical pageant girl - I was a little more

I wasn’t the typical pageant girl – I was a little more nerdy, and they gave me a voice. I created the Queen of the Universe pageant, which is charity-based, to benefit UNESCO. For me, the most important thing is that contestants have a charity-based platform or charity ambition.
Joyce Giraud
Whether you want to lose 20 pounds or 200, what the contestants on ‘The Biggest Loser’ have learned – and taught me – holds true: You’ve got to make a break. You’ve got to divorce yourself from the past and find a different way of living. And you can never go back.

‘Smart Funny and Black’ is basically a live black pop culture game show that I created. We have a live band.

When we were on ‘The X Factor,’ we didn’t realize how overnight the fame thing was. We didn’t really understand it until we went on a shopping trip. It was like Week 7 or 8 of the show. We went with a few other contestants and there were loads of people, packed.
