Miss America, Watch Out for Miss Texas

by Joy Donovan on January 13, 2012

Who is surpised that Miss Texas, Kendall Morris, won the swim suit competition?

It could be a very exciting weekend for Texans at the Miss America Pageant.

Miss Texas, Kendall Morris, is competing there for the Miss American title, and earlier this week she won a preliminary award in the swimsuit competition. That, plus the fact that Texas is one of the “pageant states” where competition is keen just to get to be on the Miss America  (www.missamerica.org) stage, makes her a favorite to make the finals for the Miss America crown.

Before being crowned Miss Texas last summer, Morris was a featured twirler at Texas Christian University and she had represented Frisco at the state competition. It was her talent as a pianist, though, that made her the second TCU student in a row to win the title. A broadcasting major, she is a member of Pi Beta Phi sorority.

After a few years of being a pretty lame reality TV show, the Miss America Pageant again will be broadcast on a major TV network. You can watch it at 8 p.m. Saturday on ABC. Now if only we could get them to move it from Vegas back to Atlantic City, where it belongs.
