Based on the sneak peeks for tonight’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, we didn’t exactly have high expectations for Cynthia Bailey’s very first Miss Renaissance pageant, but we were pleasantly surprised with how things ended up.

Sure, things got off to a rough start when co-host Boris Kodjoe showed up looking like he was heading to a baseball game and no one could seem to follow the script, but after working out a few kinks, the pageant actually turned out to be a great event. All the young ladies who were competing brought their a-game, and the winning teen was totally touched to be taking home the crown.

We know Cynthia would have prefered her first pageant to be free of hiccups, but even our girl kept her cool under pressure and laughed it off as best she could.

But what do you think: Was Cynthia’s inaugural pageant full of fun of a total failure? Weigh in below!
