Miss Wisconsin, Laura Kaeppeler, was crowned Miss America 2012 last night at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. The first runner-up was Miss Oklahoma, Betty Thompson, and the second runner-up was Miss New York, Kaitlin Monte. The level of talent in this year’s competition was extremely high. Basically they were all hot and all deserved to win, but I would have crowned Miss Michigan, Elizabeth Ann Wertenberger, as Miss America 2012, Miss Colorado, Diana Dreman, as the first runner-up, and Miss North Carolina, Hailey Best, as the second runner up. I think Miss America might be the best pageant out there. They are all winners in my book.
