Judging Miss Tootsie...

June 22, 2009 - Jennifer Brookens
I was flattered when the organizers of the Miss Tootsie contest in Sherburn asked if I would be a judge. It turned out to be a very fun night, and a more difficult decision than I expected.

Despite some severe 5 o'clock shadows, these guys cleaned up pretty well. One seemed to have some issues with cosmetic surgery, as Miss Audrey Hammers relied heavily (no pun intended) on her backside for the talent portion of the contest, but then appeared more pronounced in the chest for the physical fitness portion of the contest.

When I saw the rehersal a few weeks earlier for Miss Tootsie, I was concerned that not all the guys were thrilled about being involved. But all six men seemed to pull out the stops and played it up for the big night. Along with playing dress-up, these guys learned dance routines and put together their own talent: some danced, one sang, and Miss Redneck Ruby displayed her many "animal calls" for her talent.

As I judged both on their effort and crowd response, there were 4 of 6 contestants that were high on my list. (However I deducted a point from Hammer's score when my daughter couldn't take any more booty-shaking and she covered her eyes and said, "Tell me when it's over.") Still, it was only a few points difference from the top "ladies," and I was pleased to see that those in my top listing also received the Miss Congeniality (Wilma Thomasina) and Miss Physical Fitness (Hammers). The winner was .... Miss Sandy Gravel.

But all six men get my props for being willing to go through all the extra effort, being good sports and having fun while raising money for a great cause. Can't wait for Miss Tootsie 2010!!
