In case you missed it the 2011 Miss America is Teresa Scanlan, Miss Nebraska.
Mr. Harer seems to have a knack for picking girls within the top 5, right from the moment they do their introductions. Tonight, he nailed it. He picked Nebraska right from the beginning.
My top choices;
None of my picks made it to the top 5.
This year the pageant was back on it's home network, ABC. They dropped all the reality tv makeover pre-pageant silliness and brought the pageant back to it's root purpose; to find one young woman, who personifies the American ideal, brains, beauty and a heart of gold.
Despite her age (the new Miss America is only 17) I think the judges made an excellent choice. I cannot wait to see what she accomplishes in her year.
