Fun fact of the day? Fun fact of the day.
Uproxx's Dustin Rowles wrote the blogger equivalent of a perfect game on this, meaning that'd it'd be insulting to even attempt to rival his magnum opus. From Mr. Rowles:
Last year, when I wrote the post, 7 Things About “The League” Cast that You Probably Didn’t Know, one of the things that I mentioned was that Katie Aselton — who is married to the guy who plays Pete (Mark Duplass) — was Miss Teen for the state of Maine growing up. I took a certain pride in this because I live in Maine, and along with Anna Kendrick, Aselton solidifies our reputation as the leader of home-grown cute, spunky women of Hollywood (holla!). One thing I couldn’t find despite literally MINUTES of searching on the Internet was video or photographic proof that Aselton was indeed Miss Maine.
I can now close that chapter in my life, as Lobster Mobster, via the Something Awful Forums, has unearthed video evidence of the 1995 Miss Teen USA Pageant.
The first video is of the 50 Contestants introducing themselves, and I’ll save you the brain cells by directing you toward the 4:15 mark, where Katie — unlike the other contestants who use their time to promote themselves — gives a shout out to her friends back home. DO NOT watch the other contestants, as I had to sit through the first four minutes to find Katie Aselton, and a fifth minute would’ve forced me eat a gun.
This next clip is the bikini competition section, with Aselton coming in at the 1:28 mark. As Rowles notes, it's probably a pretty good idea to remember that the time of this video, Jenny was only 17. Go be creep-man Ryan Reynolds in "Waiting" all you want, but that shit's on you.
