Miss Nebraska Megan Swanson Flashes Underwear During Live Miss America Pageant
Last night's live telecast of the Miss America pageant had its share of memorable moments, including one very unfortunate flashing by Miss Nebraska Megan Swanson.
The contestant hailing all the way from the Cornhusker State was spotted by many observant viewers leaning over in a short skirt in the background while co-host Chris Harrison began explaining the judges' criteria for the annual competition.
Swanson, who was dressed in a crochet top and black mini skirt, was chatting with a fellow contestant during the segment with her legs uncrossed—which ultimately led to her flashing moment seen on national TV.
But the snafu didn't seem to overshadow the fact that Swanson was accomplishing her lifelong goal of being at the Miss America pageant.
She tweeted late last night: "Exactly 1 yr ago today I was achieving my dream of performing at Belmonts Christian Showcase. Now, I'm fulfilling my dream at Miss America!"
Sadly, Swanson didn't walk away the winner of the evening, with the ultimate prize going to 23-year-old blond beauty Miss New York Kira Kazantsev.
The win marks the third straight year that Miss New York has gone home the winner of the top prize and a $50,000 scholarship.
Shortly after her big win, Kazantsev took to Twitter to say, "Pretty sure I'm the luckiest girl in the world."
