From what I could tell, the primary basis for judging was the contestant promenade when each girl came out, did a walk and wave, had her bio read, and answered a question. There were a lot of vanilla answers but just enough originality to keep it interesting. One question on the bio was where each girl would go if she could go anywhere in the world. Probably 75% of the girls said Disneyland, fun, but Ada dreams a little bigger than most. Where would she go? Australia. A few of the girls' answers seemed too contrived or practiced. Other's could have used a little more polishing. The two best answers:
Q: If you had a healing power and could completely cure any disease, which disease would you cure?
A: Swine flu.
What??? I was waiting to hear that she would cure cancer, maybe diabetes, heart disease, something, but swine flu? Who would waste their magic powers on that. No surprise, she did not win.
Q: Who is your hero?
A: Rees Witherspoon because I really admire her high values. Um, I understand if you want to list her as your hero because Legally Blonde is your favorite movie, or you are hoping you can get an equally great blonde color in your hair, or maybe even you admire that she jogs. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure she is a very nice person, but I don't know that she is really the epitome of morals and values to admire.
|Ada and her friend|
If for any reason she cannot fulfill her queen duties,
I'm sure Ada will be thrilled to step in
|I'm not sure the pageant would have been their first choice,|
But Tim and Luke were good sports
And looked great in their coordinating outfits.
