Crowned: Daredevil Divas Win It All!
The Daredevil Divas won, and we're pretty happy about it -- are you? They actually seem to like each other, they're beautiful in unconventional ways (we love how muscular Jenileigh is -- she's no waif), and their talent portion was pretty darn cool.
Besides the Daredevils, though, last night's Crowned finale still had a lot to offer: painfully iridescent gowns, awkward declarations of philanthropy, and an earsplitting "talent" portion from the Sincere Sexy Reds. In short, it was a fitting end to a show that's always made us feel equal parts amused and embarrassed.
In true pageant style, the show culminated in a series of competitions: swimsuit, evening gown, talent, and interview. Swimsuit and evening gown were relatively uneventful, but the competition heated up during the talent portion. The Daredevil Divas rocked the house with their aerial number (though Jenileigh once again did most of the work, even though Moya gamely tried to get more involved this time around). Dream Gals tried their hand at accapella singing, and they fared better than before, but they still didn't totally wow us -- or the judges. Then there were the Sincere Sexy Reds. Breathlessly clueless until the end, the pair's rendition of "Climb Every Mountain" was worse than before -- something we didn't think was possible! The talent competition got fierce, though, when Gifted Dolls performed their dance number. This time Rachelle's hat stayed on and the dolls were in sync.
