    Really, let's see what your woman looks like.

    The 2013 Miss America was blond, not brunette.
    Not sure where you people get your info from, but I hope all your sources are not that suspect.

    Here's the 2013 Miss America:

    You don't seem the sharpest tool in the shed: miss america should be set to a higher bar than people I'm poking. And as I stated previously, the current winner is clearly attractive. But as far as what I would expect from someone winning that contest? Not so much

    You do understand how the contest works don't you?

    The girls have to volunteer to enter the contest at a state level, and win their respective state.

    Then, the winner of Miss America gets chosen from those.

    It's purely voluntary.

    Plus, there's more to it than just looks.

    The 2014 winner is gorgeous.

    I believe they usually look at other qualities. But you good ahead with your thinking.
