Subject: Aside from vocalists and dancers (many sing in church, and many become teachers), how many former Miss State from 25+ years ago still keep up with their talent? Thinking mostly of instrumentalists and wondering how many give it up. But also include baton twirlers, gymnasts, etc.

Hi everyone,

I've seen links to various state pageant videos pop up on this board lately. Like most of us, I've had a little too much free time on my hands, so I found boxes of old VCR tapes, DVDs and video files of most of the state pageants I participated in over my career as musical director up to 2012. I started with the most recent Miss MS pageants from 2009-2012 because they were already in a digital video format and it was easy to upload to YouTube. I removed all the commercials. All the remaining shows are on DVDs and VCR tapes. None are high definition. I ordered a hardware converter to make the shows more consistent between each other and that should arrive this weekend and make the job easier, but they will have to play through in real time from start to finish. At over 2 hours each, that's a lot of work ahead. I'll try to process a few each week and upload them to my YouTube channel when completed. If you keep this link, you will be able to watch as soon as I upload them. There are gaps in the years, but I have televised state pageants from MS, NC, OH, CT, PA and VA. My work schedule outside of musicalcreations gets quite busy at times, so I'll convert as many as possible and upload as time allows. Lots of memories in these shows. Hope you enjoy them. Jeff

Here's the link to my YouTube channel:

Seeing the videos from the 80s has me reminiscing about the more recent (my lifetime) pageants and how I never understood how some girls didn't advance. Can anyone who was there in person for these pageants tell me what happened to the following ladies I loved watching? I have some prelim year tapes and some I just followed on here and was surprised when they either didn't make the first cut or in the case of the 2001 pageant, only made top 20 and no further.

Also where are they now?

Heather Soriano (Mississippi; even by MS standards, she was drop dead gorgeous and looked like a total doll. She didn't make the cut at USA due to height I bet, but why wasn't she in the finals at Miss America? Where is she now?)

Katy Johnson (Vermont; I know all about the scandal after her ex wrote a tell-all, but that was after Miss America so what held her back at Miss A? She was definitely not the norm for VT and it would have been great to see her be the first Miss VT to make the cut. What happened to her?)

Teresa Uchytil (Iowa; I thought her story made her a shoo-in. Don't know how I feel about her not making it, but I was surprised. So what happened?)

Jennifer Powers (Illinois; shocker. Her talent was incredible. I thought it would carry her. She was also pretty so I don't get it).

Tina Foehlinger (Nebraska; I think she made top 20, but I really, really liked this one. I thought she'd make top 10 for sure just on personality. If she'd been from a sash state, I think she would have gone further. What is she up to now?)

Kelly Glorioso (Maryland; another one of my favorites. She was so "real" and I really liked following her year here on this board. What happened at Miss A? She had a strong platform and seemed to have a strong interview. What is she doing now?)

Jennifer D'Ambrosio (Rhode Island; I think what likely hurt her was the interview she gave E! for their reality show that year about the pageant. She complained a lot. But I thought she was a doll and I really liked her being a "real" girl on camera and admitting pageants are super expensive. Is she involved at all in the MAO or did she move on?).

Melissa Clark (Louisiana; ok, what happened here? She was like a pageant queen if I remember right and did pageants all her life. She was also the National Sweetheart winner. She didn't do anything at Miss A and that always confused me. Can anyone shed light? What is she up to now?)

Lizzie Horton (North Carolina; I know she's a newscaster now, but I so wanted her to make the cut. What happened?)


One who did make top 10 and I still wonder what happened to her because I loved her:
Victoria Andrews Paige (Miss NJ)

I was watching an old pageant tape the other day and a girl was murdering a Streisand song.
I wondered why a contestant would attempt a song by certain iconic singers, because invariably it is going to invite comparisons.
However, every once in a while, a contestant knocks it out of the park.
Who are your choices for certain contestants that after their performance a song should be "put to bed" because they did such a great job with it?
Here are two nominees:
Michelle Warren " And I'm Tellin' You
and
Tammy Walker "Don't Rain on my Parade"
Who are some of your choices?

Watching some of the vintage pageants and wondering something about the 1987 pageant. I know this was the pageant notorious for 8 of the top 10 being southern states and with that being said I’m wondering why didn’t Miss Louisiana, Amanda Mainord didn’t advance. That must have been quite devastating to be the only Deep South state overlooked. What held her back? Watching the Miss Louisiana pageants where she won and crowned she seemed talented, intelligent, and beautiful. Also wondering why Carol Carter missed top 10 the year Susan Akin won. She was stunning!

What was the worst pageant trend that you remember? Mine as a child were the Claire's Couture dresses....I would have given anything to look like a pint size Lorretta Lynn at 7. And as an adult, those horrible lucite stripper shoes

The pageant was posted a few weeks ago on Youtube. That opening number has not aged well. The production numbers you could get away with then versus now is staggering.

Diane Nash was mentioned several times during John Lewis funeral. She was a 1960's civil rights activist contemporary with John Lewis.

In 1956 Diane Nash was a runner-up in a local pageant for Miss Illinois / Miss America. Her dream had been to be Miss America.

She was one of the earliest black contestants in the Miss America program.

Was this ever paid back?

Does anyone have any information about the Miss America pageant Bathers Revue Men's contests of the 1920's ? There was a Bathers Revue category/competition for men. Found an old trophy online sale that stated the plaque on the trophy was engraved with: "Atlantic City Pageant 1922 First Prize Bathers Revue Men won by Jay S Carns"

Have googled Jay S Carns and Bathers Revue Men and have found nothing.

Does anyone have any information concerning men in the beach/boardwalk competition ?

Right before crowning why didn't they reintroduce the top 10? And if I'm not mistaken in some years especially in Louisiana, the top 10 were up on the risers and weren't even in the middle of the stage. Curious.

I watched the 1989 Miss TX Pageant that was recently posted on Youtube. Not sure if I'm crazy, but the 4th runner-up that year was Gayle Ross. For some reason, that name sounds very familiar to me, even though I had never seen this pageant before and am not from Texas? Did she continue on as a volunteer or pageant leader somewhere after she was done competing? Or is her name common enough that I may be thinking of another Gayle or Gail Ross? Enquiring minds want to know! - lol
