You do know that NE/Denver is on don't you? You do know this is a homo board where most aren't interested in women showing their tits right?
Isn't Ms Calif. the lesbian?
Miss Wisconsin is a lard- ass.
What the hell has Alabama got resting on her shoulder?
a bunch of dim lightbulbs if you ask me
Are you the only one watching.
[quote]Miss Wisconsin is a lard- ass.
And the lard ass won. 2nd Wisconsin winner. Mom called me all excited about it. Family knew thew first Wisconsin winner, Terry Meeuwsen, from the same city.
Miss South Carolina, of the 110 pound weight loss, has obviously had tons of plastic surgery and lipo.She has an entirely different face, and looks like a tranny.Her swimsuit portion was painful to watch.
majority of winners are never heard of after their ear in spotlight... some have been cohosts on Fox or 700 Club...only one winner was jewish as it is a right wing Christian program run by our friends at MTV... did you notice all the diversity ...blacks, lainos, blondes?
I hadn't watched this in years, but I actually enjoyed it, though it is kinda camp. It had attractive hosts, gorgeous contestants and a bouncy, youthful energy to the proceedings. They included the talent competition, and a new feature where they tacked on a surprise 11th member, picked by her fellow contestants, to the top ten finalists (shades of Survivor).
As for the out lesbians vying for the new Miss California- they didn't make it to the finals.
What was with South Carolina's walk? I'm not sure if that was a legacy of when she was so much heavier -- but it was the strangest pageant walk that I have ever seen.
OMG. The "talent" portion. The first three were craptacular!
Miss Maryland sang "I Dreamed a Dream".....horribly....it seemed like she forgot the words right at the big part...."Turn your dreams to shame......"
Hathaway must be behind this.
Something I've always wondered, does the winner of Miss America go on to compete in the Miss Universe pageant representing the USA?
no...Miss USA does r25....she won this year.
Miss USA goes to Miss Universe not Miss America
Miss District of Columbia plans to undergo a preventive double mastectomy to reduce her risk of breast cancer, which killed her mother and grandmother.
Miss Montana was the pageant's first autistic contestant.
Miss Iowa has Tourette's syndrome.
And Miss Maine lost more than 50 pounds before winning her state crown.
How odd was it that one of the women was named Mariah Cary?
These pageants have zero class nowadays.
Way too contemporary.
I was there as a seatfiller, front section. I do believe Miss America goes to the Miss World competition, the one not associated with Donald Trump.
Did anyone else here the very liberal marijuana comment from the finalist who came in 5th? She said that mj should be legalized for recreational use and for medical reasons. You would not believe the number of gasps in that audience.
[quote]Miss New York won. From Brooklyn no less.
She's originally from Opelika, Alabama.

I didn't watch, but wow. Miss America definitely isn't as conservative/churchy/uptight as it used to be.
R35, Still can't figure out if the contestant, who ended up only 4th runner up, intended to say what she actually did. The very senior audience was beyond shocked. The judge who asked her the question claimed that 2 states have legalized marijuana for recreational use, not just for medicinal purposes. I did not know that was true. Of course many pay doctors to claim that they need it for chronic pain, whether that is true or nor.
[quote]many pay doctors to claim that they need it for chronic pain, whether that is true or nor.
But that's the case for any drug -- we gossip daily about celebs and their "prescriptions" that often end up killing them, and it is also nothing new. Raymond Chandler wrote about medical rackets where MDs in offices along Hollywood Blvd. would offer to clean your sinuses. To do that, they would give you cocaine to "dull the pain."
R35, I heard that contestant (she is black) say that she agreed with marijuana for medicinal purposes, but not recreational use.
R32, Miss America does NOT go to the Miss World pageant (if there is one) nor the Miss Universe pagaent.
I think it's hysterical that Miss America is a white girl from Alabama via Brooklyn and her boyfriend is a black man who went to Amherst. Only in America, my babies.
[quote]Wow...this used to be a major, national event. Yes, this could be you, Academy Awards...
I'll guess that there are posters who don't realize what a huge deal the Miss America pageant used to be.
The song," There she is, Miss America", also is back
B. Parks Jr.
On tonight! Anyone watching?
This years gimmick is that the contestants no longer have to conceal their tattoos.
Did tattoo girl get eliminated? I have to agree with Donald Trump who thought tattoos were tacky.
I'm rooting for the fabulously soft-butch Miss Kansas!
Miss Kansas has dead hair.
So taged and scripted- another reality show. Tatoo girl or one armed bandit girl for the trend and cool factor
Yes, OP, you were the only one in the world who was watching. That's because you're very, very special.
Is it just me or do most of these bitches look like whores in their bathing suits and make-up?
Miss Missouri for the win. She's mischievous and has the only sense of humor on stage of the 53 plastic putanas.
[quote]Am I the only one watching?
Yes, OP, you were the only one watching in the entire universe. That's because you're very, very special.
R53: Hell to the yea, they look like whores! Always have, and I've been watching on and off for 40 years (but I was a tinylittle girl...) THink it's the makeup.
Love how the bathing suit is described as, "bathing suit, fitness and confidence", hee-hee!
I don't normally care for tatoos, but I admire that girl - Miss Kansas - hope she wins!
Is Helen O'Connell on the show?
She's a right wing gun nut but if that's your bag then okay.
I hope Kansas loses, tired of the tattoo fad already.
Do any of them look like they've had a good meal recently?
Miss Kansas just murdered "Nessun Dorma" because she wasn't allowed to do archery on stage. I guess you have to hand it to her for changing her talent on the fly when she's not a singer.
Miss California's ballet dancing is ludicrous. It looks like she's doing an impression of Barbara Streisand dancing Swan Lake in Funny Girl.
Wait ... they get just 90 SECONDS for talent now???
Miss Georgia's "On My Own" and Miss Texas's "Fever" were execrable.
The deaf Miss America was also a ballerina, so she's in good company.
90 seconds is plenty!
Now we're treated to Miss Minnesota's screechy, tuneless violin playing.
Do any of them have talent?
The old Miss America is showing plenty of cleavage in her two-piece evening gown.
MISS NEW YORK!
NY won. What's her ethnicity? She looks dark.
Parents are from India.
I miss the corn and the camp. Where was the ventriloquist? Where was pianists playing Brahms or Rachmaninoff? Where's "There's She Is, Miss America.."
Usually the talent portion was boring, but that was part of the pageant's charm. I miss the sashes that that had only the state's name in big, black san=serif type.
Ha, ha. The NY Post ran a story about how the current Ms. NY called last year's winner a fatty. They probably hate each other.
[quote]I miss the corn and the camp.
Obviously you missed gimpy Miss Florida baton-twirling in a leg brace to Bette Midler's "Big Noise from Winnetka."
[quote]The NY Post ran a story about how the current Ms. NY called last year's winner a fatty.
More precisely, "fat as fuck."
I had no idea my 68-year-old mother had a subscription here, OP.
Pics of last year's winner?
Mallory Hagan, Miss America 2013 (who only won in January):
R62, "I know, right?!" Agree; isn't that ridiculous?? I'm ancient enought to remember when it was 10 minutes - well, maybe 5 - but 90seconds is NUTS! Although, whatever you may think of her, the winner made the most of her 90 seconds; that dance was fierce!
That bitch from Georgia who sang "On My Own" from Les Miz sucked. Her interpretation of belting the song was utterly ridiculous.
And she sang it in some sort of defiance against "every boyfriend who ever broke up with her." Stupid bitch.
