Turns out her name is Kaitlynn Carter, she's 22, and she's a UNH grad to boot! (Go Cats!) She's hot, she's smart, she's funny, she seems like a "real person," and she really loves Portsmouth. Check her out and watch her represent for the Port City in a big way:
Now, if you look at the top 10 finalists, the rest of them are from much bigger "towns" of Miami, Chicago, LA, etc., and most of them are already professional models. Frankly, I'm not impressed. So I'm definitely voting for Kaitlynn, right? Well, not so fast, because there's one more attractive young lady from another area near and dear to my heart... Not my childhood hometown of Brewster, Mass. on Cape Cod, but Harwich, which is the next town over. This contestant's name is Meredith, and she's pretty spectacular as you can see:
So the question is, whom do I support?
Kaitlynn is a Steelers fan, while Meredith says "Red Sox, babyyyy." Nuff ced.
Meredith is a statuesque 5'9" and Kaitlynn is 5'5"... I prefer shorter girls, but this is a wash.
Meredith reminds me a little of Elle MacPherson (yeow!) while Kaitlynn has a fresh look.
I like Kaitlynn's taste in movies (Inglourious Basterds & Vicky Cristina Barcelona) but not her taste in music (Shania Twain).
Their homemade videos (not the ones above; their original entry videos) indicate to me that they are both super nice, regular people -- total goofballs, in fact! They both talk about where they are from more than they talk about themselves. To see either one of them win would be awesome.
So what do you think? Who gets my vote?
