Nina Davuluri is the first ever Indian American Miss America. (Progress?) Always interesting to see who wins these kinds of pageants. Though Miss Davuluri is the first Indian American Miss America, she’s the second one in a row from NYC. Here’s a little more about her, from the LA Times:
Davuluri, 24, competed in outfits including an animal-print bikini (pardon us, swimsuit) and a bright yellow evening gown that she described as “the more sexy version” of Belle’s dress in “Beauty and the Beast.” In the talent portion of the evening, she delivered a Bollywood-style dance.
The “interviews” of the top five finalists — one question each — gave rise to varied responses, as the questions were all over the map. Judge Mario Cantone of “Sex and the City” fame asked Miss Oklahoma what she thought of Miley Cyrus’ recent twerk-filled VMAs performance [ed. note: seriously??], and judge Lance Bass of N*SYNC asked Miss Minnesota whether political candidates were carrying “Stand By Your Man” too far by supporting their spouses.
Oh but don’t worry, they got into Syria, too and even bigger, Julie Chen’s plastic surgery confession.
Did you watch? Who watches these?
