He is very socialized with people around, very easy to be distracted with toys if he is in panic.
I tried to leash train him, but he is afraid of outside, unlike my other girl just pick up naturally (dont know if this would tell if he would panic in show)
he would be shown in the alter class, his older brother has won the 4th places, and mom has gave birth to many show quality kittens and actually won prizes.

I honestly don't know the criteria. The judges look at head shape, ears, legs, body, etc. It's not just having a striking pelt. Enter him and see what happens. Just remember there will be other cats around (all in cages) but lots of different smells, plus lots of people and activity! It may only take one show for you to realize that he is not up to the task. But you will never know if you don't find out. There are certain things you have to bring to the show so read up on showing your cat. A well socialized cat that everyone thinks is beautiful is not necessarily show quality. But .... your boy could actually get a championship his first show if he places high enough.

I don't know how often cat shows come around your area, but you can always just leave your baby at home and attend the show yourself and see what all goes on there -- talk with the breeders who are showing. See if you can talk with a judge or two. You can learn a lot just from that experience.

The criteria are published:

HEAD..................... 35 points
Shape................. 6
Ears................... 6
Eyes .................. 5
Chin................... 3
Muzzle................. 4
Nose .................. 2
Profile................. 6
Neck .................. 3

BODY..................... 30 points
Torso..................5
Legs
..................4
Feet...................4
Tail ...................5
Boning.................6
Musculature ............6

COAT/COLOR/PATTERN..... 35 points
Texture............... 10
Pattern ............... 15
Color................. 10

I have no experience showing Bengals, but I used to show Himalayans and Exotic Shorthairs. From that I know that things like markings and coat color are weighted less than I thought they would be. You can see above that Pattern is only worth 15 points.

To my untrained eye, he looks like he has an outstanding face shape and muzzle. So he may do very well in show.

I don't know if I could put up with Bengal attitude and howling at a cat show... LOL.

I really don't know anything about shows. I've been to one, but that's it. He's certainly a good looking kitty, but aesthetically, to me, his markings don't have much contrast. But what do I know? And perhaps those markings will be darker in the colder months. *shrugs helplessly*

Colovega, what you posed is a points breakdown, but it's not really criteria. I mean what constitutes a "full" 6 point head shape? lol, oh gawd, reminds me how glad I am to not have to worry about such things :lol:

They go into more detail on the criteria on their breed page on TICA's website, but, it's still difficult since it's not like they include a visual reference or anything.

And, just like everything else, it's the at the discretion of the judge. Each judge sees things a little differently.
