In a TooFab exclusive preview for this Sunday's new episode of "Queen America" on Facebook Watch, renowned pageant coach Vicki Ellis (Zeta-Jones) attempts to teach her amateur candidate, Samantha Cole (Belle Shouse), how to ace her pageant competition interview.
"Now, the trick is to make the interviewer feel like they're having a conversation with you, but they're not," Vicki tells Sam in the clip. "In a conversation, you're both asking questions, but in an interview you're only giving answers. What the interviewer asks is out of your control."
She continues, "The key is to guide the interaction so you're still holding the reigns."
Vicki, dressed to the nines in snakeskin blouse and tight pencil skirt, tells Samantha that she'll "demonstrate" how it's done. Take noes!
"Queen America" follows ruthless pageant coach Vicki Ellis as she molds student Samantha Cole into the ultimate queen.
Facebook describes the dark comedy as "a dissection of the American Dream as it manifests in the small towns of our country where opportunities are scarce and beauty pageants are often a ticket out. Vicki is desperately sought after by young women competing to be pageant queen royalty for one reason; she can turn any girl into a winner. But when she's paired with the beautiful but unpolished Samantha, Vicki's entire reputation is at stake."
Episode 4 of the Facebook Watch series shows Vicki and the team struggling to find the right act for Samantha to perform in the talent competition. At the same time, Vicki encounters people from her past that prevent her from staying focused on Samantha's competition.
