Welcome Back Junkies!
Today’s Weekend Wrap-Up is being posted on Saturday (rather than Sunday or Monday), because of our Miss USA predictions which will be posted on Sunday (and I’m guessing that means we’ll post a USA wrap-up on Monday)…
We’ve got ourselves another lovely young lady who’s headed to Miss America –
Kendall Bautista is the new Miss Alaska!
Kendall just shined in this beautiful “antique pink” lace evening gown – And as a former Miss Alaska USA, we’re guessing Kendall knew exactly how to bring her ‘presence’ to the stage last night! Kendall just graduated from the University of Alaska at Anchorage in journalism/communications – and played the piano for her talent.
Here’s the full breakdown from last night’s competition…
Winner = Kendall Bautista
1st RU = Marlise Williams
2nd RU = Angelina Klapperich
3rd RU = Ellie Gottstein
4th RU = Harper King
Turns out, the Miss Anchorage Org had a pretty great night last night! Both Kendall and the new Miss Alaska’s Outstanding Teen (Danielle Stam) are from the Miss Anchorage Organization – AS WELL AS – 1st Runner up, Marlise Gibson! DANG! I’d call that a clean sweep! Congrats Ladies!!!
Junkies are SUPER GRATEFUL for the tweets and live periscope updates from Miss Anchorage (@MissAnchorage) – Without that lifeline into Miss Alaska, the evening wouldn’t have been nearly as much fun to follow! #BigJunkieThanks
When it comes to our predictions for Miss Alaska, Junkies were 3 for 5, accurately identifying Kendall Bautista, Angelina Klapperich and Ellie Gottstein 🙂 That means, we’re not 6/7 so far when it comes to picking state winners and 18/32 when picking ladies who finish in the top 5.
But the crazy has not yet begun.
NEXT WEEK – 10 state pageants will take place on Saturday, June 11h… That’s right, TEN!
Which is really just a warm-up for the FIFTEEN state pageants that will take place between June 18th and 19th! You heard me – FIFTEEN!!!
Therefore, if you’ve yet to join the Pageant Junkies Prediction Party, just click here to learn about Pageant Junkies Premium, and we’ll send you our Top 5 list for the remaining 46 state competitions (posted during the week that each state pageant takes place).
Our first predictions for next week’s state titles will be released on Monday, May 6th! Don’t miss out!
And once again ladies – Please Don’t Forget – Predictions are simply for fun! They have no reflection on your actual ability to do the job at hand! We want EVERYONE to perform at their very best level and achieve whatever is in your heart to achieve!
That’s why we always say…
If we say your name, we hope you prove us right!
And if we don’t say your name, we hope you prove us wrong!
