Keep in mind the presentation score is not the presentation walk, but the competitor's composure on the stage from their stain, their stance, their posing ability, their suit fit), excessive tattoos or body piercing, their ability to stand still without unnecessary movement to distract the judges. Does their stain run, is it even or do they even have any on? Do they have too much oil or not enough oil? Are they listening to the judges, are they playing the stage fair with the other competitors or are they trying to block out their opponents? Are they chewing gum, looking down without any eye contact to the judges or audience? This round must be judged very critically. However, there must be a score for the stage presence in the morning show.
