U-M grad Nina Davuluri wins Miss America
Only the SEC has hot coeds.
This is where I would be reincarnated as a 19 year old! OMG.
The number of hot girls at Michigan vs any SEC school isnt close lol
I'm sure this is just SEC bias showing, but like Miss St. getting major rub because they play in the SEC, Kentucky and Arkansas sure do get some "hot girl" rub being in the same conference at Ole Miss, Georgia, and Florida.
Kentucky thing started (IMO) mainly because of Ashley Judd. Not saying it isn't true, just saying that my roommate and I were very close to driving down to UK one day to attend a Wildcat club hockey game for a complimentary "Ashley Judd in nothing but a hockey sweater" schedule poster.
Actually, the rest of their posters are pretty good, too.
They still sell them at the games they have had better posters she isn't that hot and yes UK has a ton of hot girls running around. We both played at Midnight makes for a fun interesting crowd. Every game is sold out so you gotta stand in line early if you wanted to do so.
I remember that calendar hanging in the Coach and 4 and wondering why I hadn't gone to Kentucky.
But yeah, it's a school that got a lot of buzz because a pretty cute actress went there. I mean, Lucy Liu went to UM and she's rather attractive, but because she doesn't pop up at basketball games people forget that.
Arizona St. and USC would rival the SEC if it weren't for the accents.
So I guess we have a right to be arrogant; our grads are not only smarter and classier, but also better looking than MSU grads and OSU grads. Basically better human beings all around.
The problem I always felt was that the hottest girls at Michigan were just as the hottest girls elsewhere but there were too few of them compared to other campuses.
And they seemed to disappear between October and the last two weeks of classes in April. I remember seeing these girls walking around during Finals, thinking "where did they come from?"
This is so true. Was there some exchange program?
I went to HS with her! she is a great person and very intelligent.
SJ! Go Bears!
ooops, wrong thread
2/10 would not bang.
cry out for visuals.
And this thumb from an earlier pageant, where she evidently was Miss Michigan:
Reading comprehension fails me.
...is very nice.
Unfortunately with wrap after walking the stage...
And she was rocking the maize in her evening gown/winner's outfit.
As much as I loved Michigan, I always felt the girls were too smart & classy. Michigan State girls - hot, dumb, and slutty - have always been more my speed.
No one cares.
If you didn't, you wouldn't reply
Indeed, I often reminisce upon my halcyon days at the U, as I endeavored to charm the brilliant ladies of the Maize and Blue. I recall many a evening at Rick's American Cafe, whereupon I and rather homely yet enticingly witty lasses of about 20 years, would imbibe the finest cognac and entwine our minds in elaborate philosophical musings. In one instance, I proferred the ironical observation that Kant's Critique of Pure Reason, while being a robust and poignant defense of the virtues of the common man, was so overly verbose and obfuscating that no common man would ever be able to comprehend it. What a blunderous miscalculation, indeed, for such a lofty thinking man of historical import! It is to laugh! Yet my companion insisted that Kant's method was sound, as his intent were toward a mere proselytizing of his aristocratic contemporaries. Needless to say, I ne'er did call upon this lady for affectionate company in even the most dire of circumstances.
The single greatest thing I've ever read on the Internet
Congrats to Nina
Twitter is saying she was a Sigma Kappa at MSU..... sooo where did they go wrong?
It looks like she has an alumni entry in the UM directory. I don't think MSU's online directory shows alumni, so I'm not sure how to check on that one.
According to some other Twitter people, she spent a semester at MSU, before coming to UM, where she graduated
I have tons of friends that are friends of hers. She defintely went and graduated from Michigan.
She almost got beat by Miss Akron. It was really intense.
I wonder how many points the Akron metaphor would have gotten in the posbang era?
ALL the points.
the interwebs! Thanks for the lol on a Monday morning.
Methinks this is perfect for, but too late to end up in, TWIS.
Reading the comments section from the article in the original post makes me weep for this country.
Two days before the 2013 Miss America pageant, Miss New York Nina Dalvuluri —the self-proclaimed Miss Diversity — was allegedly caught on tape calling outgoing Miss America Mallory Hagan "fat as fuck."* Keep it classy, ladies. Another beauty queen overheard and taped Dalvuluri's conversation in a hotel room on July 16th, during which a friend of Dalvuluri's also made racist remarks. The recording has been making the rounds on the pageant circuit and brought to the board of the Miss America pageant. Hagan's rep says there is no validity to the story whatsoever, but Dalvuluri sent her a Facebook apology:
“I want to apologize for the awful statements made by people in my room . . . There were people who claimed to be my supporters and said things I never agreed with, nor supported . . . I was never a part of the words or statements that may have been hurtful . . . I’m sorry if someone said something that was inappropriate.”
But what you say in privacy vs. what you say in public....I mean, in our living room my wife said "ohmygod she's so big" and then they showed the last year pics, and she's certainly put on a pound or twenty. I wouldn't say "fat", but certainly not what you'd expect the reigning Miss America to look like. Hey, after you've completed your responsibilities go wild. I mean, some of them are way too skinny anyway. That's why I like the winner (and a few others) who actually have some shape and when they turn their hips their stomach doesn't look like I should be donating money to UNICEF.
Nina is my cousin. We are so thrilled and proud of her. She went to state for a year...and transfered to Michigan!! Everyone in our family are Michigan grads! Please ignore those articles. .they are factually incorrect. The allegations against her were investigated by miss america pageant and was cleared of any wrongdoing.
Nina is a kind..smart...and beautiful girl in many ways. She worked so hard and persevered for this title. Go blue!
Is that two Miss Americas now between AA and Dearborn?
Rima Fakih, who was a University Of Michigan-Dearborn student and graduate, was the 2010 winner of Miss USA, which is actually a different competition (Miss America dates back to the 1920s, whereas Miss USA started in the 1950s, I believe).
ALL YOUR PAGEANT ARE BELONG TO US!!
I think Miss USA competes in the Miss Universe pagent, primarily. They're the Trump pagents. (Though I just found out last night there's something called Miss World too that Miss America might go on to compete in).
Congrats! Welcome to the club with Kate Upton
Congrats to Nina! Her sister is a good friend of mine.
In related news, this makes me weep for America.
reminiscent of the Marc Anthony reactions after he sang at the MLB All Star Game. I wonder if there is any overlap in the idiotic commenters.
Hopefully, the public shaming tumblr for the Miss America reactions gets similar publicity.
Two and a half Asians in the final group too. How awesome is that?
