Miss Utah 2013 Ciera Pekarcik (@MissUtah2013) represented the Beehive state in the 2014 Miss America pageant. She unfortunately did not advance at all beyond the 2014 National Contestants round, and did not have much to do during the Semi Finals, Top 12, Top 10, Top 5, or whatever it is these ladies do after winning Miss America. I'm really out of my ken here. (I only know that this contest is going on because Preeti's mom phoned to tell that an Indian girl was in the contest, and she won, so, uh, "Jai Hind!" I guess.) Ciera did makes waves in Utah Jazz twitter though because she doesn't think our beloved Jazz are going to go all the way this year.
The Venn diagrams that include Utah, Jazz Twitter, and watching shows most men don't watch all matched up in the perfect storm for Jazz Twitter All-Star @LostTacoVendor . . . . so take it away, LTV:
Miss Utah decides to use the Miss America pageant as a platform to discuss how terrible the Jazz are going to be.— LostTacoVendor (@LostTacoVendor) September 16, 2013
And he followed that up with this lovely bit . . .
If Miss Utah doesn't win this thing it's obviously because Ty Corbin is her pageant coach.— LostTacoVendor (@LostTacoVendor) September 16, 2013
I'm not going to put in all of his golden tweets in this post, check out his timeline for all of the goodies! (He also gets in a great jab at the C4 of Derrick Favors, Gordon Hayward, Enes Kanter, and Alec Burks -- made me laugh out loud!)
Overall this was a bad night for Ciera, but I'm sure her year long duties as being Miss Utah will keep her fulfilled and busy. Her career ambition is to "become a news anchor." Maybe this means she'll one day replace Steve Brown on the sidelines of Jazz games as a start to her eventual media domination. I wish her all the best. And Steve Brown has the charisma of Socially Awkward Penguin. (The girl who won, Nina Davuluri, was a part of a number of National Honors lists and is going to medical school when her year as Miss America is over . . . so . . . aim low -- it's the Jazz way?)
BREAKING NEWS UPDATE:
