I made the trip to Middleton, WI today for the Miss Wisconsin and Miss Teen Wisconsin pageant. It was held at the Middleton High School Performing Arts Center.
I knew a few of the wonderful ladies competing tonight but really was perplexed as to how it would play out. There were any number of what Valerie Hayes would call "elite contestants" and I knew the judges would have some difficult decisions to make.
The lovely Denise Wallace was the host. They started with introductions of the contestants followed quickly by announcement of Top 15 in each division. Judges were then announced and included Miss USA 2005 Chelsea Cooley. Swimsuit came next followed by a musical selection by Breanna of Minnesota. After that tune there was the review of gowns with all the teen and Miss participants. There were many beautiful gowns and stunning ladies modelling them. Finalist competition followed. The show was nvery tight and kept moving. We were halfway through gown at the one hour mark.
BTW, I noticed friend of the show, Paula Preston was among the sponsors of the event. And you all think I just pay attention during swimsuit!
The divisions were chopped down to Top 5 for the onstage question.
But enough chit-chat. What are the results?
Miss Wisconsin USA 2008 is Alexandra Wehrley.
Miss Wisconsin Teen USA 2008 is Elizabeth Bryson.
Congratulations one and all!
