Video exclusive: One-on-one chat with 2011 Miss America Teresa Scanlan
Moments after she was crowned the new 2011 Miss America at Planet Hollywood last night, 17-year-old Teresa Scanlan from the small town of Gering, Neb., sat for an exclusive video interview with VegasDeLuxe.com’s Robin Leach.
We have the full conversation even before she appears live tomorrow for her first TV appearances on Fox & Friends with host and 1989 Miss America Gretchen Carlson, and then on The View with Joy Behar, one of this year’s 90th anniversary pageant judges.
As you can see and hear, Teresa talked candidly about her determination to one day become president of the United States. As she’s only 17, she says that she still has another lifetime to achieve that goal!
Our thanks to Christopher Rauschnot of 24kMedia on Twitter for the video coverage and to contributing photographer Tom Donoghue for capturing our sit-down exclusive.
We’ll be back tomorrow with a recap of the 10 days of Miss America in Las Vegas and also post video of Teresa’s post-pageant press conference with the judges, which included heartwarming words from judge and Dancing With the Stars professional dancer Tony Dovolani.
