Miss Ohio 2009: Live Blog Preliminary Night Two

My Predictions

Swimsuit - Becky or Heather
Talent - Katie Camp, Kristen or Shannon, if they don't go for the dancers

I was most impressed by Ashleigh Lemon's onstage answer.



Kylie Johnson - "How does one initiate going green?"
I think Kylie looks great, but she didn't really answer the question, which you all know I'm a big stickler on!

Heather Waterman - "How do you instill children set and reach their goals?"
She didn't really give a clear answer, but looks really cute - great colored shirt and hair cut.

Rebekah Zoz - an airplane flew over from Burbank, I didn't hear the exact question...
She seemed very passionate about her platform though.

Ashleigh Lemon - "Is it time to drill in currently restricted areas for oil?"
She was very well spoken! She listened and gave a very thoughtful answer.

Sasha Eby - "Other negative impacts of teen sex?"
She also listened and gave a strong answer with tangible examples.

Amber Bussa - "Is it really teaching the importance of volunteering if it's a requirement?"
Wow, she's so cute! She gave a clear, concise answer, which I would expect of a question she's surely gotten a thousand times.

Ashely Warholic - "What piece of advice would you give to our leaders?"
She said enthusiasm, which is a great attribute that she clearly has as well. I'm an Ashley fan, but her wording could be a tad more concise.

Kristy Moneysmith - "How do you identify children who need a mentor?"
Love her dress! Kristy spoke with passion, but it was almost like she was yelling. She gave a good answer, but it almost started to go in circles.

Jenna Wilson - "Are birth defects genetic or due to the practices of the mother?"
Also a very cute dress! Jenna gave a great answer, addressing both sides of the issue, so to speak.


Becky Minger - Green and shiny - smooth and confident!

Victoria Miller - Black trimmed in teal - good personality.

Whitney Fricky - Teal - Why is there always at least one contestant "walking on sunshine?" Great body.

Emily Pheils - Blue - Emily looks great, you can tell she's really committed and worked!

Nanciann Strosnider - Teal trimmed in white - super confident, as always!

Heather Wells - Shiny Teal - Really sassy and sexy!

Erica Gelhaus - Hot pink trimmed in black - Flirty like her talent last night, a little on the quick side.

Jessica Barrett - Red - That was a daring little red bikini for Jessica! I liked her song selection and she always has great personality.



Katie Camp - Tap to "Big Time"
I like her cute hot pink and black dance outfit. I'm not a dancer, but it was very entertaining; folks online say it was technically sound.

Courtney Monk - vocal "Someone Like You"
She's wearing the gold gown she performed in at her local; I agree with someone online who said she had some nerves, but her vocals were solid for the most part. She's a very expressive, passionate vocalist.

Shannon O'Neill - vocal "As If We Never Said Goodbye"
Shannon looks beautiful! She's wearing her burgundy gown with illusion top. Ballads suit her voice well.

Ellen Bryan - vocal "I want to go to Hollywood"
In a red cocktail dress Ellen continues to remind me of Miss Ohio USA. She is bringing a lot of energy and I think she selected a fun song that fits her voice.

Alyssa Hanson - vocal "Till There Was You"
Alyssa is in a gorgeous hot pink gown; she has no shortage of great wardrobe pieces. This is a beautiful, classic, song, so on one hand I can appreciate the simple piano accompaniment. But for the purposes of Miss Ohio, I think fuller instrumentation would have helped.

Katie Bowen - flute
Oh, it's the song they always play at weddings... She looks amazing! The white strapless gown suits the song and her hair is very Katie Harman.

Kristen Haas - jazz dance "Diamonds are a Girls Best Friends"
Now that's how you take your place on stage! Way to make use of her time. I love her cute black fringe costume with pink accents. Although folks online weren't impressed, I thought it was the most entertaining of the flight!


Kylie Johnson - Basic, elegant black - I'm glad she slowed down in comparison to her Swimsuit last night.

Heather Waterman - Purple - very nice, but I think I prefer her animal print gown.

Rebekah Zoz - Black - this is a nice upgrade from her local gown. Not crazy about the hair.

Ashleigh Lemon - Illusion top, red/orange skirt - Wow, the red really stands out; she seems very confident.

Sasha Eby - Black liquid beading - She continues to have a teen vibe to me, not that that's bad, just saying.

Amber Bussa - A green/tan print - this doesn't read well online, I'm sure it's great in person.

Ashley Warholic - Chic black, velvet maybe - Very classy, but I love her in color, especially her yellow gown.

Kristy Moneysmith - White, or tan maybe - Flattering and elegant.

Jenna Wilson - Hot pink Grecian - I love Jenna, but I don't know if this gown does her justice.

And with that, my screen just froze.
