This morning the Tournament of Roses announced its 2011 Royal Court.
Seven lovely girls are now left of the original 1,000 plus candidates from last months trials.
The 2011 Royal Court Princesses & their schools are: Tatyane Berrios of Arcadia), Sarah Fredrickson of Maranatha, Evanne Friedmann of La Canada, Jessica Montoya of Flintridge, Tenaya Senzaki of Pasadena High, Kathryn Thomson of Flintridge and Michelle Washington of Pasadena City College
My small handful of familiar faces in the group of 31 finalists group did not make it. Well, just my usual luck! Still, I do hope out of this group will be Queen who I can call one of my favs just as with the last two royals. (I hope all these girls like to eat & love K9’s)
Now the question is who will be The One left standing when the Queen is announced on October 19th?! Well, may the best man win! Ahem, I meant of course, may the best young lady win!!
Local station KTLA handed the coverage of the announcement to Wendy Burch, herself a former beauty pageant Queen from a couple years past. KTLA has an unusual video embedding which I don’t have time to fix now but here is the link. Forgive the commercial that precedes the Rose announcement:
Gotta Run. Need to Eat!! Stay Thirsty My Friends
