Samantha Russo has a gift.  The girl can sing!

Samantha was named the preliminary talent award winner on the very first night of competition at Miss America - which, in case you don't know, is typically STACKED with crazy amounts of Talent.  In case you missed it - here's a video of her prelim performance from YouTube :)

I told you... THE GIRL CAN SING!  And - she just started taking lessons AFTER she was named Miss New Hampshire!

In addition, we loved Samantha's "Top Things Learned at Miss America" post from her own blog... If you're a contestant this year, do yourself a favor a read it here!  Well worth the time!!! :)

We're pretty sure we're going to be seeing great things from Sam Russo over the coming years... She won Miss NH on her first try - which might now feel like a 'detour' on her journey towards a career in sports broadcasting.  In fact, she has a love of baseball that warms our Junkie hearts!  Here's wishing BIG SUCCESS to Samantha in the years to come! :)

Regarding this year's competition - Lucky for us - we got to meet a WHOLE BUNCH of Junkies from NH at Miss America in Atlantic City!  Don't think we haven't forgotten about you :)  We LOVE our NH Junkies and can't wait to see how this week's competition plays out :)

Now - Junkies Say Here's Who to Watch:

Sarah Mousseau - 2nd runner up '12 and '13, Prelim SS in '13
Kendall Wipff - 1st runner up '13, Miss Mass OT '10, 3rd time at Miss NH
Jessica Avelar - 3rd runner up in '13
Holly Blanchard - Prelim Talent winner, Top 12 in '13
Joanna Shields - Miss CT competitor twice, lovely body

Big Shout Out to Stephanie and Nichole Iacuzio - sisters competing together at Miss NH!  And Junkies also wanna say "Good Luck" to Kat Howland who sent us some fabulous New Hampshire maple syrup plus other goodies from the Granite State (You Look Great Kat!!!) :)
