It is normally up to the contest organizer how judges are selected. Many organizers prefer CBJ's but some have to use their celebrity judges because they have sponsored monies or some other advertisement for their contest. While seating, reps can switch the judges around to make sure spouses or significant others are not sitting at the same table. (This is important because many spouses have the same tastes). Also, reps can place the more experienced (Master) judges to balance the table. They will help the newbies if it arises. Table captains also help in this area.
