Contestant Introduction: Hi! My name is Miriam May Finnegan but my friends call me Mimi. I am the last person you would EVER expect to be in a beauty pageant. For starters I’m thirty-four and I have a bunion. The good news is that I just went through a serious metamorphosis and have come out of my cocoon like gangbusters! The bad news is that my bunion, Edith Bunker, is still around. And she still talks to me…
Swimsuit Competition: This model and I have nearly identical body types. So I know if she rocks the suit, so will I! Also the green will look great with my new hair color.
Contestant Talent: My talent is the ability to let you know the exact number of Weight Watcher points in every food imaginable. I can do this while tying maraschino cherry stems into knots with my tongue and juggling honeydew melons (zero points on Weight Watchers).
Interview Question: What magazine cover do you want to be on?
Answer: I want to be on the cover of Weight Watchers Magazine! That would mean that I finally got rid of those ten pounds and Marge, my leader, would be SO proud! And of course it would also mean my bunion, Edith Bunker, would be history. That, my friends, would be a red letter day. Bring on the cover!
