Miss America 2013

I know its not as popular on here as the Trump pageants but hey I thought I'd start a wee thread anyway

Prelim Winners
Talent - Oklahoma
Lifestyle and Fitness (Feminist code for Swimsuit) - South Carolina


This year Miss America has its first autistic contestant. Miss Montana Alexis Wineman.


I love how cheap all the personal videos are Made the girls film their own.

Also can't wait for Miss Puerto Rico to be snubbed as usual despite being one of the strongest delegates. Mimi Pabon anyone This year it is Kiaraliz Medina.

The pageant always reeks of conservatism in comparison with Miss USA.

Re: Miss America 2013

I read few of the Ms America hopefuls have some interesting stories. One of them is like will have a mastectomy after the contest due to genetic family history of breast cancer.

Re: Miss America 2013

Please, they elected this



over this



as Miss America

This bullshit godawful contest has no worth at all

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Miss America 2013

That's Miss USA. Not Miss America.

Miss America alumni include
Vanessa Williams

Gretchen Carlson


As one Youtube comment said, Carlson looked like Glenn Beck in drag.

Re: Miss America 2013

Vanessa But what's the difference? Is Miss America for all the actual American continent and miss USA only for the United States?

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit.

Re: Miss America 2013

Basically its just two different companies, way back in the 50s one Miss America winner refused to promote the swimsuit brand, she wanted to be taken seriously as a singer. Then the brand in question founded the Miss Universe and Miss USA competitions.

Miss USA competes at Miss Universe and tends to be used by girls who want to work in entertainment, acting or modelling whereas Miss America remains solely a scholarship programme so tends to get more academic contestants. Also Miss America doesn't compete at any pageant internationally.

Miss America also has a talent segment to the competition which Miss USA does not.

Miss America is open to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands along with the 50 states + D.C.

Re: Miss America 2013

That's interesting

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit.
