Miss Nebraska Teresa Scanlan was crowned Miss America Saturday night in Las Vegas -- at 17, the youngest winner in about 80 years. Local angle! Seems that the recent high school graduate had planned to attend Patrick Henry College, the conservative Christian institution in Loudoun County, Virginia, before her pageant trajectory took over her life. (Update, Tuesday afternoon: Get ready -- she's running for president in 2028.)

Miss Virginia Caitlin Uze survived three elimination rounds to make it to the top 10 and compete in the talent portion with her vigorous Irish step dancing. She did not advance with the top five chosen for the interview portion, though. (Last year's Miss Virginia, Caressa Cameron, went on to be crowned Miss America.)

Updated, Sunday afternoon: Talker of the night: How did Miss Arkansas -- who not only had the nerve to do the pageant's first ventriloquism act (that we remember) in 30 years, but did it well -- not win? She was first runner-up. Check out the video below.
