The pride of Goshen, Indiana… Jackie Jerlecki, Miss Indiana 2011 is beautiful, talented and in her spare time, she talks to frogs…

Well ok… that’s not quite the whole story… Jackie was at an appearance and was participating in a frog jumping contest. On her Facebook page, Jackie said she was trying to offer some ‘encouraging words to Walter’… but to no avail. Obviously, the frog must’ve been deaf to begin with.
We loved watching Jackie all year long… and we’re guessing Indiana was pretty happy with their 2011 queen too! 🙂
Miss Indiana History: The one and only Miss America from Indiana was Katie Stam, Miss America 2009. Katie was also “America’s Choice” on the show.
