Interesting Miss America factoid I uncovered today. The last time the top 3 were all non-preliminary winners was in 1995 — Shawntel Smith (OK), Emily Orton (OR), and Paula Montgomery (AR).

I don't think it had ever happened before that, but my familiarity with the pageant only goes back to 1967 or so.... and in those years prelim winners almost always made top 10 and the overall winner was usually a prelim winner.

A few years ago the new craze was Stomp involving garbage cans and brooms used as percussion on stage and those performances swept the nation like crazy as a fantastic fun talent event. How does this really differ from what we witnessed this year at Miss America?

I am so fired up and ready to prepare for my first local of the season! I know that interview is the area that I really would like to hire a coach for this year just to really hone in my skills and help package my platform. I have heard that Mallory, Nina and Kira worked with Bill Alverson and I wanted to know how to get in touch with him and also roughly how much he charges? Thanks so much!

Subject: Don't have a horse in this race, but want to share a couple of observations, having been a pagent follower for many years. The show this past Sunday night was boring. No way around that. The evening gowns were pretty universally bad; both in style and fit. The Catalina swimsuit tops were awful; anyone with a high-definition television could see the built-in cups, and lord help the girls who added padding. And the talents? Why in the world would MAO brag about being a program that recognizes talent and then present what was arguably the worst display of second-rate singers and hoofers ever seen on TV? If it all boils down to the interview, then drop the huge expense of putting on the pageant, and simply hold interviews for the job. The on-stage competition doesn't seem to count for much of anything.

Forgetting about Red Cup-gate 2014, here are some thoughts about this year's pageant.

Top 15: I personally thought this was a solid Top 15. Last year there were some head scratchers, this year I could understand why the panel selected the 14 (excluding America's Choice). Surprise exclusions based on the board buzz: California, Kansas, Wisconsin, New Jersey. Unfortunately, with at least 20 girls who could have made the cut - some strong contestants were left standing. No huge shockers though.

I actually liked the swimsuits. It initially appeared that this year's class was overall weak in SS, but there were several fit girls in the Top 15. Of the 12 who moved on: there is only one girl I was surprised moved on (will remain nameless), I was not a CT fan - but thought based on body and face that she was one of the 12 strongest. Based on the little we did see, I have a feeling her interview was not as strong as other semi-finalists.

Talent: To someone who is an untrained dancer, pianist and has little vocal training, everyone sounded/looked decent. Keep in mind most of the viewers and judges are untrained. It is impossible for me to tell if AL was better than FL and vice-versa. MS started strong, but lost me in the end. I personally thought AL was entertaining and her exclusion from the Top 5 was more surprising to me. AR was nice, MA was good. After talent my Top 5 was MS, VA, AL, FL and AR. My jaw dropped when NY got the call.

Top 5: I think a lot of anger lies in the fact that virtually everyone had some combo of TX, MS, AL, FL and CT as the Top 5. Few people deviated from those 5. Some of these girls were just not the strongest on finals night. AR was a pleasant surprise. I am not surprised MA did so well; with her it was more of feeling like I didn't want her to win instead of thinking she couldn't win. Congrats to MA for breaking the Top 5. FL - not really a surprise. VA - I am from VA, I don't hide my bias. I was more surprised that more fans did not have her in the Top 5. An OT in one of the strongest OT programs, placed Top 10 (wasn't she Caressa's teen?), Top 5 in VA 3 times before winning and 1st RU her first year to Crot? That is a pretty great record. I just think VA stayed quiet after last year's experience.

Winner: Well, I didn't think NY would win. But a few days later I realize it is more of disappointment that VA didn't get their 4th Miss A than anything personal against Kira. Mallory will always be one of my favorite MAs and I personally feel Kira, while a different girl, has the best chance of mimicking Mallory's success. I know her talent, her talent, but the last truly talented MA was attacked on this board. There is no way to please everyone. I wish her the best of luck in an exciting year ahead.

To those that were at the preliminaries, what do you think happened with Miss Kansas. I thought for sure she would at least make the Top 15. She has a very impressive resume, a great story, and I thought she would be competitive in the on-stage categories. I know that on one prediction list I read, the writer had her as his winner. I know there were probably a lot of contestants that probably were also deserving of advancing, (and unfortunately only 15 can)but I'm just curious what the thoughts were of others that were actually there and saw her in competition.

I noticed and several others brought this to my attention... just after the top 16 were announced and they brought the sister onto camera to take the instagram picture. They introduced her as "a semifinalist, Miss SC's sister." Do you think this was a mistake or the teleprompter knew the semifinalists before the live filming?? I've heard she was contacted by the producers on Sunday morning to be a part of the show..

Well, the ratings are in and it begs the question. Why the heck are we on Sunday night opposite football? We are NEVER going to get the number one spot going up against the NFL (even if they are in trouble lately). Why oh why aren't we on Sat. night?

I noticed that none of the judges are addressing the controversy on their Twitter accounts. Do you think Sam told them to not comment on their decision? The backlash is strong and I know many people have tweeted questions to the judges. We just want to know the direction of the MAO. Is this a interview only competition. Are they trying to phase out talent?

I was watching Masters of Sex on Showtime on Demand last night AND one of the cast members was listed as Karissa Lee Staples (maybe I'm spelling that incorrectly).

Wasn't there a Miss Maine by that name who competed about 7 years ago?
