Candace "Candy" Dystra appears as a judge at the 2009 Western Ohio Sectional Championship in Sectionals, the thirteenth episode of Season One, along with Donna Landries and Rod Remington. Candace, with the other two judges, votes for the New Directions to win.
She is portrayed by actress Anna Camp.
Candace appears along with Rod Remington and Donna Landries as a judge at the Glee Club's Sectionals in the episode titled. She gives the impression of being an unintelligent "valley girl" type of woman. She claims she was uncomfortable and rather irritated when the deaf kids sang (or "honked" as she calls it). She says she liked the energy of New Directions' performance, but doesn't think they were all that rehearsed (which they weren't). When they are leaving the judging room, she congratulates the group telling them that they should be "very proud." Donna then shoves her out of the way so she cannot talk to the McKinley kids, who had been listening to the judges' conversation at the door. This is the only appearance she makes on Glee.
Candace was the fifth runner-up for Miss Ohio in 2006. She doesn't appear to be very academically bright, and has a stereotypical "girly-girl" personality, liking everything pink and pretty.
Candace is suddenly attracted to Rod when he starts telling stories from his famous past and looking at her. Later on, you hear him asking her to write down her email address.
Okay. I'm just gonna come out and say it. This is a singing competition. I don't know how those deaf kids got in. They weren't singing, they were like honking and everyone was crying and I was like, "Get off the stage. You're terrible and you're making me super uncomfortable."
