9PM
Call time for the contestants with all belongings and clothing. This section of the contest is open to the public.

10PM
Contest Begins.

In this section, you will be introducing yourself to the audience as directed. You will be wearing bar/cruise wear. This is an outfit that you might be wearing when you are at a leather bar and cruising. This is more casual than Formal Leathers. You will come out one at a time and then as a group at the end for comparison judging.

This is the audience’s favorite section. You will appear onstage in leather jock wear. This section is to determine how comfortable you are in your natural skin. Have fun and be sexy!
The question is a pop question that is used to test your wit and quickness. Have fun. This is not meant to trick you but rather to have fun with you. As before, you will come out at the end as a group for the comparison judging.

In this section, you will be wearing your formal or dress leather. You have 3 minutes to give a speech on the topic of your choice. Being political or controversial is not necessary. Just be yourself. Your speech will be much more effective if it is not read so you are encouraged to memorize it to the point that the delivery is natural. As before, you will come out at the end as a group for comparison judging.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS TO BE WHO YOU ARE AND NOT WHAT YOU THINK MR EAGLE SHOULD BE. WEAR WHAT FEELS NATURAL TO YOU AND THAT WHICH REFLECTS YOUR PERSONALITY.
2PM
Victory brunch (closed to the public).
7PM
Victory celebration at The Eagle on the roof deck.
