For the record, this is about to be a really short post.
Not because we don’t like Puerto Rico, but because the Junkies are still kicking themselves for not taking that immersion internship to Mexico in college. After a zillion credits in Spanish Language and too many years later, we are seriously inept at doing the adequate amount research on a contestant because everything we find is in Spanish! Including Facebook pages! Who knew Miss Puerto Rico and this blog would be yet another reason why we should’ve given up Christmas vacation??? Ugh! But I digress…
Here’s Laura Ramierez, Miss Puerto Rico 2011… isn’t she lovely?
Puerto Rico has an outstanding Miss Universe track record and lots of girls know how to look glamorous! If Miss America can tap into some of those contestants who are interested in the scholarship opportunities offered by MAO, they’ll be in great shape!
Miss Puerto Rico History: Miss Puerto Rico returned to Miss America in 2010 – after nearly a 50 year hiatus! Mimi Pabon won Swimsuit in 10, but nothing else of note.
Best Junkie Research Tool: The Miss America Website has all the contestants here…
Who To Watch: Ummm…. we have no idea. Based on our research, it appears that all 14 of the contests are brand new this year.. which doesn’t give us much to go on. Admittedly, we’re really stretching it here… but if you gotta take a shot in the dark, here’s who we’re picking..
Kiara Liz Medina – She’s on Twitter, has a Facebook page for her local pageant and she’s a Flamenco Dancer
Valerie Trinidad – Former Miss Kissimmee Florida Latina competed at Miss Florida Latina, Jazz Dancer
Amanda Morel – Martial Arts Talent
Gonna be just as surprised as you are when we crown Miss Puerto Rico tonight! 🙂 Junkie Love!!! 🙂
