Okay, so I was obviously rooting for California when the competiton started, but after she was gone (), I rooted for Oklahoma and Tennessee. Then when TN got eliminated, I was totally gunning for OK. And let me tell you, I was pretty shocked when she got only 3rd runner up. I think she should have been higher up, especially after dominating the competition.
I grew to like both Texas and Mississippi. I wanted other girls to win more than them, but I still grew to like them. When I first initially saw them (and this might sound mean, but everyone judges the girls' looks in a beauty paegant ), I thought there were definitely a lot more pretty girls out there, if you know what I mean. But after seeing them a lot more on my screen, I eventually saw how beautiful they are. And I agree with people that posted before, Texas gave a knockout answer. She sealed it with that one. Even the guy who gave the question gave a "wow, I'm really impressed" look on his face. So am I satisfied with the final 2? Yup.
Oh, and I was just reading this. Crystle (the winner) is the second black Miss Texas USA to win the title, after Chelsi Smith won it in 95. Chelsi went on to win the Miss Universe title that year, so maybe the past can show itself in the future possibly? Maybe just wishful thinking.
