Pageant Updates!

Local Updates

I think every titleholder needs to form relationships with her hometown and college newspapers. (Don't expect your ED to do it for you.) But Miss Lima Square Fair, Shannon O'Neill, has gone above and beyond! CLICK HERE for last month's Spotlight article in FourPoints Magazine and CLICK HERE for her feature in Pageantry magazine's summer edition. (Click "page" at the top then select the page 114 thumbnail.) Congrats, Shannon!

Former Ohio contestant and Virginia titlehoder, Laura Pennington is participating in the Pepsi Refresh Project, in which the top 5 ideas recieve $5,000 to start a community program! Laura would like to start a dance program for children in underprivilaged communities. Please CLICK HERE to support Laura by voting for her program!

National Updates

Miss USA is underway in Las Vegas! The contestants arrived this weekend and will have a whirlwind of events and preliminary competitions, culminating in the live crowning of Miss USA 2010 on May 16! Log on to the Miss USA website to view, and even rate, the contestants! The site features headshots, swimsuit and gown photos and a super sexy, controversial Victoria's Secret style shot!

Last season, former Miss America Erika Dunlap and her husband made the Top 3 on one of my favorite reality tv shows, The Amazing Race. This season, former Miss South Carolina Teen USA, Caite Upton and her boyfrend, Brent ran the race. She had a lot to prove after her embarrassing youtube moment at Miss Teen USA. She did indeed show that she can read, such as, maps, by being the only female in the Top 3. However, they did not go to The Iraq. ;) I'll not share the results out of respect for the DVR-addicted society in which we live.
