Miss USA 2009

Despite the fact that I don’t personally like to participate in pageants, I enjoy watching others battle it out to win the title and on Sunday night Miss USA 2009 took place in Las Vegas. Fifty one were narrowed down to top fifteen, ten, five and finally one woman remained making her Miss USA 2009.

As the night went on the competition got more intense as the judges made narrowed it down to the top 15 and then to the top ten.

The top ten consisted of California, South Carolina, Kentucky, Utah, North Carolina, Arkansas, Texas, West Virgina, Tennessee and Arizona.  These ladies had to model swimwear, evening wear and answer a question about themselves.

Finally it was narrowed down to the top five: Arizona, California, Kentucky, North Carolina and Utah. Each girl took turns drawing a answering a question prepared by a judge.

Then the moment came that everyone had been waiting for….the crowning of the new Miss USA was about to take place. 4th Runner up- Kentucky, 3rd runner up-Utah, 2nd runner up-Arizona, 1st runner up-California making North Carolina Miss USA 2009! She was my favorite, she was both beautiful and well spoken.

The next day controversy broke out over California’s question that she was asked by her judge Perez Hilton. He asked her if she thought that other states could allow same sex marriage to be legal. She responded honestly and confidently that while she doesn’t want to offend anyone but she was raised a marriage is meant to be between a man  and a woman. Aapparently Perez referred to her as a “stupid *itch” because he is a well-known gay man. I think the question shouldn’t have ever been asked in the first place because it should have been known that if she didn’t win people would assume it was because of the way see answered the question. I think North Carolina deserved to win 100 percent so I don’t feel her answer made her lose but again the whole controversy could have easily been avoided in the first place. No other judge asked such a controversial question but of course Perez Hilton had to be difficult and cause some drama.
