This Monday, August 14th, at 7 p.m. EST, Miss Teen USA, Allie LaForce, will pay a visit to HABBO (http://www.habbo.com), one of the world’s largest and hottest on-line destinations for teenagers, for an interview with Habbo’s D.J. Jackie about her year as Miss Teen USA, and the upcoming broadcast of Miss Teen USA 2006, which airs live on NBC this Tuesday, August 15th at 8 p.m. Several of the current state titleholders, including Miss California Teen USA, Miss Washington Teen USA, Miss New York Teen USA, and Miss Wisconsin Teen USA, will join Habbo on Tuesday at 7 p.m. EST to talk to fans about the big event. All will compete that night for the chance to be the new Miss Teen USA.
The current Miss Teen USA, Allie LaForce, is a self-proclaimed “tomboy” from Vermilion, OH. In addition to being first in her class academically, Allie is also on the varsity basketball, softball and volleyball teams at her high school and hopes to parlay her love of sports and entertainment into a career as a sportscaster. She will crown her successor at the conclusion of the two-hour primetime telecast August 15th. Each contestant from 50 states and the District of Columbia will compete in three categories: swimsuit, evening gown and interview. More information can be found at http://www.missuniverse.org.
