Last night, my roommate and I were trying to find something to watch on our incredibly spare list of channels. We wound up settling on having the 2014 Miss America Competition on in the background while we chatted, but we gradually got more engrossed in the program as time went on. Why? Well, a number of really, really cool things happened. More

At last night’s Miss America pageant, one Marissa Powell, also know as Miss Utah, went the philosoraptor route by giving an answer that sounded like the intro to a term paper some stoner freshman wrote. NeNe Leakes asked this question: “A recent report shows … More
Yes, I competed in a Miss America local, and a state preliminary. This was when I was young, innocent and assumed that I had no other game plan than to become Miss America. That did not happen, instead I went a on a wayward, yet interesting path to eventually figure out what I was going to do with my life. What I did learn from competing in pageants? It made me a damn good stripper! More
America, meet your new queen: Miss New York, Mallory Hytes Hagan. She tap-dances to James Brown, she comes from Brooklyn, where she attended the Fashion Institute of Technology; she hopes to work in global cosmetics marketing someday. Her charitable platform is the prevention of child sexual abuse and she owns at least one swimsuit. More

The results are in. Laura Kaeppeler of Kenosha, Wisconsin has been crowned the winner of this year’s Miss America pageant, and as you can see, she, like every other winner of the Miss America Pageant, is extremely psyched about the $52,000 worth of scholarship money coming her way. (Almost enough to buy a full year at Yale!) Here are five fun facts about her. More

The Miss America pageant is being held tonight in Las Vegas. To prepare for the event, the Paris casino featured custom pairs of shoes inspired by each of the states and designed in part by the Misses themselves. This AP article gives us a couple of details – the Connecticut shoe had a basketball hoop on it as a shoutout to the UConn women’s basketball team; the Louisiana shoe had a Mardi Gras theme – but a sad dearth of pictures. I’m going to assume that the shoe for my home state of North Carolina featured a heel shaped like a giant cigarette. More
Miss Delaware has alopecia. The Miss America contestant Kayla Martell has been dealing with condition – in which hair is lost from the scalp – since she was 10. She’s competed multiple times without wigs, but will be donning one for the pageant in order to appear “more approachable.” That makes her vaguely unorthodox.
