There she is, what is left of Miss America.
The Miss America pageant celebrated its 100th anniversary on Thursday with Miss Alaska Emma Broyles being crowned the winner. But it is 2021 and the woke competition is struggling to get anyone to care anymore.
Gone are the days of the swimsuit and evening gown competitions in favor of a winner who brags about having “flaws.”
“I am real. I have flaws. I have ADHD. I have dermatillomania, which is a form of OCD. I’ve struggled with all of these things and because of that, I am a better person,” she said. “During COVID, it was an incredibly difficult time for me, being isolated in my college dorm for so long. It was that point when I hit rock bottom when I realized I can be so much more than that.”
One of the questions asked of Broyles, because this is the age of men are evil and we have to be woke, was what she would do if a male representative of a major sponsor made inappropriate sexual comments to her.
“I know in my heart that as a woman, I am never going to let somebody treat me like, because women should never be treated like objects,” she said. “Women can be angry! We cannot be content with things that are happening.”
But it was the production quality of the pageant that had people talking on Twitter.

“Can ABC take Miss America back? What is this?” another Twitter user said.

“- minimal focus on 100 year history – complete disregard of the 40 contestants after their 15 second intros – rushed delivery of talents – hosts who treated the job as a fun get together with girlfriends,” another said.

“Hosts who were terrible at improve and reading from a script too. So many cringe worthy moments on behalf of the hosts,” another said.

Broyles is the first Korean-American to become Miss America, which gave her another chance to wave the woke flag.
“It’s something that I am hoping will inspire other young women and men all across the country who may not have seen people who look like them in positions like Miss America,” the winner said.
“I think the fact that I’m a Korean-American who’s earned the title of Miss America is completely representative of the positive change that this organization has seen,” she said. “I think that this is an organization that is incredibly progressive, and we’re progressive alongside changes that we see in society as well.”
“We’ve had such a diverse group of Miss Americas in the past decade, and even just in the top 10, it was incredibly diverse,” she said.
