Kentucky teen crowned Miss World

Alexandria Mills waves after her win.

An American teenager is now Miss World 2010. Alexandria Mills, 18, is from Louisville, Kentucky. She won the international pageant Saturday in Sanya, China.

"It's a cliche but this really is a dream come true," she said, crying. "I can't believe it's happening ot me. My time has come. I'm loving it!"

Mills beat out 115 other young women in the 60th annual competition. As the final duty in her reign, Miss World 2009 Kaiane Aldorino of Gibraltar removed the multi-colored crown from her head and gently placed it on Mills. The first runner-up was from Botswana, the second runner-up was from Venezuela.

    Kentucky is famous for breeding.


    This is a perfect example.

    There once was a girl from Kentucky
    who considered herself quite lucky.
    She'd unzip the fly
    of just any old guy
    and never found one that was yucky

    Two and a half billion contestants. Judges must have been working on this for years.

    Congratulations to this very pretty girl. As a woman I value brains way over looks but it is nice to see the display of intelligent pretty looking girls from all over the world instead of seeing women wrapped up in black garbage bags or women trying to compete to reach 500Lbs. Once one girl told me she hid herself under the garbage bag robes because she was told all nice looking precious gems were to be hidden. Unfortunately she doesn't realize that all the precious gems are on display in the museums etc. for the whole world to see and we hide ugly things in garbage bags. It's time for these women to throw out the black trash bags off their face.

    Geez! Young women still offering themselves–mind and body–to the press, to child molesters–to all you stupid men who think this makes the woman you want to be married to. If she is willing to share this part of her, wait till you are married.....she won't be sharing with you, bud.

    So what's all the complaining about? I've always liked these beauty contests and I don't think there is anything wrong with them, so all you freaks stop complaining about this young girl winning. All is good, too bad you don't understand. What the he.. do you want, all doom and gloom, so stop your criticism and let her enjoy this moment. Sheesh, some of you people! 
