Unlike any other reality show I’ve ever seen, TLC’s Countdown to the Crown has not made its criteria clear.
Here’s the thing – much like American Idol, there’s a short window of time after the final episode to vote, which means we have to MOBILIZE THE VOTE
So what do we do? I’ve already created a group on Facebook with over 400 members and later today I’ll send them all a reminder message. I suggest we all send emails to our address books. Maria authored an email that is appropriate to send to pageant and non-pageant fans alike; you can copy it below. Also, please spread the word on blogs, MySpace, Facebook, text message, etc…
TONIGHT you can vote on the TLC WEBSITE after the show () or via text message.
Hello to everyone,
Allie and Ann Krucek and I were all having a conversation Saturday night at our highschool's varsity hockey game about the latest episode of Countdown to the Crown. For those of you receiving this who have no idea what I'm talking about, it's the TLC 4-week reality show that's preceded this upcoming Saturday night's crowning of Miss America. As part of the reality show competition, the contestants have a shot at winning a gold sash, which puts them in the running for four spots in the Top Fifteen on pageant finals night. To win one of the four spots, the contestant must be one of the top four vote-getters from the public. After watching the previews for next week, we collectively are convinced that our own Miss Ohio, Karissa Martin is one of those golden sash award winners. Now here's where you come in...they will announce the 15 gold sash winners this upcoming Friday night for voting. We have a very tight window to help Karissa get that chance to compete on Saturday night for the title of Miss America. Please take the time on this coming Friday night, January 23rd to log on and vote for the chance for Karissa to live out her dream, and to hear OHIO called in the lineup at:
Former local ED, Miss Olde Canal Days, Miss Canal Fulton, and Miss Buckeye State
P.S. Please forward this to anyone and everyone you think might help!
Please spread the word and be ready to *hopefully* vote for MISS OHIO TONIGHT at 11 p.m.!
