    Only 8 months after the last one was held...

    Anyone else watching this and these intros?

    I just tuned in to hear the last few semi-finalists.

    I'm assuming the tattooed contestant made it in.

    She was the fans choice. First delegate announced. Kansas. Was kinda hoping Iowa would have made it, would have been interesting to see a contestant with only one functioning arm compete.

    When I watch pageants like this all I can think is you couldn't pay me enough $$ to put on a bikini and walk down a runway. :lol:

    Considering he used to have nothing but bleach in his hair, Lance Bass older has gotten ridiculously pretty.

    Gotta hand it to FL though, a torn ACL and MCL, that woman is going to pay for it later...

    He definitely has, him and JC turned out to be the best looking ones from Nsync. I don't think Justin's aging well.

    Miss Minnesota goes to college at my alma mater (Ohio Northern University who is probably having a huge party right now ;)) AND was actually the winner of the prelim talent competition! I don't have Ohio to root for anymore so I'm totally rooting hard for her! :cheer:

    I was bummed Miss Iowa didn't make it. It honestly was pretty shocking to me that she won Miss Iowa. Kind of shows that maybe it isn't totally a looks competition after all, because in the overall standard of beauty, it seems like missing half your arm would be a pretty big ding... She's a gorgeous woman.

    Give me enough money and I'd totally do it. No one would want to see it though!

    Is it just me or does this pageant seem to have the shortest runway walks ever for both swimsuit and evening gown? Blink and you miss it!

    There were three nights of competition: New Hampshire won night one talent, Minnesota won night two, and Florida won night three.

    This Indian dance is cool! :D

    The Opera was awful but I liked the Irish Dance a lot. :)

    Is this competition becoming figure skating's greatest hits or do I just watch too much skating? :eek:

    This... even though apparently Miss New York was quoted as saying the current Miss America was "fat as f*ck"... I like it that Miss America is a little bit more curvy, but she isn't fat at all!

    Must be especially nerve-wrecking to play the violin in front of Joshua Bell.

    Florida has persistence! Solid job and way better than any of those "singers"...
