Well, besides being "known cheese" in some instances, most TO Exemplars I've seen just dip the class for one or two abilities, and don't really "feel" like the PrC is important to their character concept at all. So I think this could actually be a really interesting one, with "Use of Secret Ingredient" being a very important category.
Hmmm. Crazy idea: we could have certain judging categories weigh differently for certain competitions. For example, what if we did a full-casting PrC, but Power scores are multiplied by 50% and Originality scores are multiplied by 150% when determining the contest's winner?
