I want to point out before we start that this is voting for the best Talent COSTUME!!!! This has NOTHING to do with the contestant's talent presentation. There will be winners in each talent category (vocal, dance, instrumental, and monologue) as well as the overall talent costume winner!

Voting ends at 11 PM Pacific Time on February 25th. Happy voting, example ballot below!

Round 2! Here's some fun facts from round 1:

- Every single contestant got at least one vote, so that means just because someone was a preliminary swimsuit winner, does not mean that everyone thought that state was the best. In fact, OH and AK actually tied, and I determined who moved on by literally drawing a name from a hat (did that with six other groups as well).
- The pairings that included both state and national swimsuit winners (meaning both contestants had won a preliminary award at some point) were Oregon and Kansas, Arizona and Georgia (Georgia at state and National Sweetheart), South Dakota and DC, and Washington and Colorado.
- Other states that have won swimsuit awards include Alabama, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee. That means that nearly HALF of this year's contestants have won swimsuit awards during their time competing!

Pairings in this round that include both swimsuit winning titleholders are: Kansas and New Mexico, North Carolina and New Jersey, Idaho and Maryland, Kentucky and Georgia, Alabama and DC, Florida and Oklahoma, and Minnesota and Pennsylvania. 7/16 pairings. And 20 of the 32 contestants are swimsuit winners.

Vote below! Voting ends at 9 PM Friday, February 24th Pacific Time!

Subject: Miss America Day of Service Information has been released by MAO. Does anyone else think they have lost the idea of a "service" day? They want each state to concentrate on raising $5,000. Why don't they call it an annual day of fundraising, because that's what they are proposing.

Sometime ago someone here posted the name of a song that was playing in the background during contestant intros at Miss America one year during the 1980's--I think there was a NY reference in the title? Loved that music and was hoping to find it---anyone recall??
Thanks!

Subject: 6 FORMERS INTERVIEWED BY COSMOPOLITAN


Author:
No name
[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 13:33:18 09/11/16 Sun

Goodness, they perhaps interviewed the most relevant formers and these gals got it just right.

Love the truth they all spoke and have to congratulate Mallory and Kate for not trying to present MAO as even close to running a perfect organization....MAO imperfect in most everyday, just as most of us.

I just wish MAO would be ready to change itself.......we all know the one person holding MAO back. Let's hope the organization survives his self absorption and comes back to place of truth and integrity sooner than later and perhaps let's Miss America be the person she went to Miss America to be, not the one he tried to make her be during her reign.

Here's the article: http://www.cosmopolitan.com/entertainment/celebs/news/a63810/miss-america-pageant-winners-what-happens-next-interviews/

and here's Kate....

KATE SHINDLE, MISS AMERICA 1998

Now: Broadway actor and president of Actor's Equity; soon to star in "Fun Home"
national tour

The day after you crowned the new Miss America, what did you do?

I was ready to be done. I didn't have any regrets. I was excited for the next chapter. Four days after I crowned the next Miss America, I started my senior year of college.

I remember reading an interview with you where you described waiting tables in New York, and trying to break into acting. You said your manager didn't find out you had been Miss America for a few months. Did you find the title helped or hindered you in showbiz?

I would say it's a mixed bag. When you're 22 years old and you're showing up in New York as an actor, you're one of thousands. There have been times when it absolutely got me into more audition rooms than some of my friends, the fact that it was a sort-of novelty thing that people would take interest in. But I had to take it from there.

When I was just starting out, I got the chance to star in the national tour of Cabaret during a period when the show was traveling to smaller markets — one-week stays in places like Des Moines and Indianapolis and Fort Worth. I don't think I would have gotten to be in that position if I didn't have something that they could sell [in those regions]. But I still worked my butt off and had to fly to London to audition for Sam Mendes. They had to be sure I was up to the task. Anyone that tells you you're going to get hired just because you were Miss America probably isn't aiming that high.

Even 19 years later, does having been Miss America play a part in your life?

It continues to be a force in my life but it's not a major factor day-to-day. When the Fun Home tour news was announced, the Associated Press tweeted the story and said something like, 'Fun Home tour boasts Broadway veterans and an ex-Miss America.' I tweeted the writer back like, 'I've actually done some theater too. I haven't been sitting around polishing my crown for 19 years.' Even though I've stayed marginally involved through the years, it's not the thing that I think of when I brush my teeth in the morning and look in the mirror. It's not 'Good morning, Miss America!' you know?! [Laughs] I'm an actor.

At the end of your book, Being Miss America: Behind the Rhinestone Curtain, you talk about changes you think need to happen in the Miss America Organization. Do you still think there are things to improve?

There is a mentality within the Miss America organization at a high level that, if you question anything or the way things are being done, you're a hater. For an institution that is supposed to be about teaching young women to be leaders — within the context of a very quirky and anachronistic competition, sure, but it does achieve that — to alienate people instead of encouraging the exchange of free thought and idea and passions is so ironic to me.

IN THE TELECAST, THEY'RE TELLING US THESE ARE THE MOST FASCINATING, TALENTED, INTELLIGENT, ACCOMPLISHED WOMEN WE COULD FIND, AND THEN THEY PUT UP THESE STUPID FACTOIDS ON THE SCREEN THAT MAKE THEM LOOK LIKE IDIOTS.
When I last looked at [the Miss America Organization's] tax returns, the CEO was taking in more in compensation than the organization was giving out in cash scholarships. The pageant is operating at a loss every year. Until they get some of those business practices under control, they're always going to be scrambling for gimmicks and ratings. In the telecast, they're telling us these are the most fascinating, talented, intelligent, accomplished women we could find, and then they put up these stupid factoids on the screen that make them look like idiots. You have a woman playing a concerto and then you have a bubble pop up in the corner of the screen that says, 'She was once chased by a cheetah.' It's not good messaging. And I think Miss America is better than that.

How come the Maoteen website still hasn't been updated? The princess camp has the wrong dates and there is not dates yet as to when the State title holders are even checking in. Some of us want to book rooms and register for camp. I know that the campers don't have to be there as early as the titleholders competing but some of the girls wanted to take their stars to the parks for the day before they had to check in and do something fun with them.

The West Virginia Organization would not honor the scholarship Emily won. The organization was taken to court and lost. Leah Summers and the board was found to be wrong. The organization was on probation, running in the red, obtaining loans, not following mission statement, not following protocol, low scholarship, bad financial records..... much more! Visit Emily's website to see documentation soon to be uploaded.

This is how this will work. You will post your votes for each pairing in the replies below. I will have an example soon of my own votes.
Some states are not in this round because there are 52 contestants, and brackets do not work unless 12 contestants skip the first round. Every contestant pairing as well as those who skipped the first round was determined by literally drawing a state out of a hat.
Also sorry that the collage is kind of ugly, photoshop has not been working on my computer lately.
Have fun! Lets see who had the best evening gown this year!

Atlantic City, NJ (February 1, 2017) – The Miss America Organization, dick clark productions and ABC announced today that the 97th Miss America Competition will return to Atlantic City’s historic Boardwalk Hall on SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2017 (9:00 – 11:00 p.m./ET) on the ABC Television Network. Packed with glitz and glam, the spectacular evening will showcase the serious smarts and tremendous talent of 52 women representing their home states and territories as they compete to bring home the crown.
