Subject: Miss Teen USA 1988: Oregon's Anne of Green Gables with teased hair (a.k.a. Mindy Duncan) vaulting her compact self from a solid 5th place to winner merely by talking about camping and roasting marshmallows.

[> [> Subject: lol. not sure what to think of Mindy Duncan's win, but I hate to say it but she did look like the Prince Harry wearing a teased wig. But in fairness, she was very perky and teenish which could've help her. I really think the judges were totally split that year between New York, Lousiana, and Illinois thus helping Mindy propel to the top. I always thought had California not been disqualified that year, she would've been up there too and had read that Alison Moreno was considered a crown contender

[> [> Subject: I wish they released the preliminary scores that year. It would have been interesting to see who was leading the pack. Teen USA has historically knocked the preliminary winners out for the final 5.

[> [> Subject: Mindy's win is a travesty. To this day, I look down upon Scott Hamilton & Christie Fichtner for giving Mindy a standing ovation. "Bravo, the underdog pulled it off!" Barf!

Miss NY Teen '88 gets the last laugh, having gone onto great achievement in daytime, winning a Daytime Emmy. Love Jessica Collins.

[> [> [> Subject: The crazy part is the judges clearly noticed Jessica's star quality, which is why she was in the lead heading into the final interview. What happened from there is a total mystery but the leprechaun from Oregon pulled away as winner. I'd take the daytime Emmy over Miss Teen USA anytime though.
