How badly do you want to punch this Clay kid in the face?!?


Alaska looked cute. Wonder if there has ever been a winner from Alaska?

Is it ONLY me, or are most of these women average to a little below-average looking, WAY too thin, and - let's be honest - a bit "prissy"?! Honestly, I can't imgaine any self-respecting woman who would want to participate in this contest. If a verbal debate, chess match, or round of "Jeopardy!" was part of the contest, I'd be far more interested. Come on, there have to be women in this country that have both brains AND beauty...these gals seem to have neither. Maybe that's because all the smart women have better things to do...

Re: the looks

Did you see last year's winner? She wasn't all that attractive, so obviously the judges are doing it on other stuff (with 50% on the interview and their "platform" of issues).

Doh! Only 3 of my faves are still in the running.

I did like Rhode Island as well as the one in the pink top (New Hampshire). Actually Hawaii is cute. Maryland scares me in the "Juwanna Mann" way...

I'm definitely pulling for Miss Hawaii Kanoelani Gibson. If she wins, it would be the second Miss America from Hawaii in the last three years (I think).

I really liked California in the evening gown. She has got it goin on with that short hair look. Big mistake to hide that wit a hat in the casual competition.

Another vote for Trista being totally worthless.

Wisconsin making it to the top five was the shocker for me.
No NH?!? No OK?!?

California is now my favorite, but I doubt she wins it.

Well, my "top 5" have been given the heave-ho.

I'm going out on the limb with my last 5 in this order:

1. Maryland
2. California
3. Wisconsin
4. Hawaii
5. Florida

(But I like California's looks the best out of these 5).

Out of the initial 51, I made 12 picks.
5 of them were top 15 finalists, and 3 were top 5 finalists, MD FL CA.
Not too bad.

I was surprised they pitched out NJ so quick.

Wisonsin's cello playing sounded flat.

My Talent rankings:

1. Hawaii (the high note sealed the deal)
2. Maryland
3. Florida
4. California
5. Wisconsin.

Sidenote: Organ transplant recipient - why didn't they have a cell phone on hand (and the hospital have the number in their files) when informing of a possible transplant organ?

The one thing that scares me about Hawaii are her choppes, they are of Mask proportions (the Jim Carrey movie character).

The more I see of California, the more I like.

I did not need to find out how many fillings the contestants had (while singing their songs). There's a lot of bleached teeth on that stage...
