Subject: Interesting Pageant trivia---Miss CT of 1966 (MAO) was essentially dethroned after the 1st RU (who had won 2 prelims) found out that the winner had STAYED at one of the judge's house before the pageant. it was such a bruhaha that Miss America decided to have a "run off" special pageant in Manhattan (with just these 2 contestants participating). The NEW panel selected the 1st RU and SHE went to Atlantic City. It was amazing.
Author: PS: To make matters worse the first "winner" was actually from Massachusetts
