Hey, I’m not going to play the idiotic “She don’t even LOOK American” to tell you why Nina Davuluri shouldn’t have been named Miss America last night. I have a much better – and less hateful -- reason.
The chick with the knee brace got robbed. I mean, she owned the swimsuit competition while sporting the legwear of a sweaty offensive lineman. Incredibly impressive.
We’re talking, of course, about the hilariously named Myrhhanda Jones, who is from …..wait for it … Florida. It’s always Florida.
To their credit, the judges crowned her the winner of the talent component for her amazing baton-twirling skills.
Jones suffered a completely torn ACL and a partially torn MCL in her right knee after a fall during her talent rehearsal Thursday morning. Medics took her offstage on a stretcher and rushed her to the hospital. She returned to Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall with a brace on her knee and determined to perform.
God, she’s like a modern day Willis Reed. Only hotter. Much, much hotter.
