Subject: BamaMan- I was at a well attended pageant party at my teacher's house believe it or not the night that Rebecca King won. Everybody thought when the six finalists were standing there that Miss Texas would win. I wouldn't say the people were horrified that Colorado won but it certainly was a surprise. However I have to tell you that as the years have gone by and I've seen the pageant on YouTube, I don't necessarily think Rebecca King was all that bad of a choice. She kind of grew on me. My first Miss USA was 1966 when California won. I loved the first runner-up that year, and I remember so did Pat Boone the co-host of the pageant.

In reply to: BamaMan 's message, "Hi Doot - the first pageant I can ever recall was Miss America 1974. I happened to be in the room during the crowning while my parents were watching. They were both horrified when Rebecca King was named the winner. The first Miss USA pageant I watched was 1976 (Barbara Peterson), followed by my first Miss Universe pageant that same year. Little did I know what an aberration Barbara's non-placement was!" on 13:58:37 05/15/20 Fri

[> [> [> Subject: Well, being from Colorado, I was so happy that night Miss Colorado - Rebecca King won Miss America! I remember shouting SHE WON! It was a happy night for us in beautiful Colorado. I watched that pageant not too long ago and I think Rebecca really is pretty, even though I didn't think she was before. I know she came off as cold and aloof, but I think she had a good and professional presentation the night she won. She came to my town as Miss America to crown our local queen and I wanted to go to the pageant but I knew my parents wouldn't take me. I found out the day after the pageant the neighbor kids went to the pageant and didn't ask me to go with them. I remember telling them I wish I could go to the pageant and they never said they were going. So, I was upset they went and didn't ask me to go with them. They had two souvenir programs on their table and I took one and still have it. They could have asked me to go with them, after all, Miss America was coming to town!
