Nash to play role in ‘09 Miss America Pageant

The 2009 Miss America Pageant is an anniversary year for Judi Ford Nash of Geneseo. She was chosen to wear the crown in 1969, and will take part in this year’s pageant in Las Vegas.
The Miss America Pageant will air at 7 p.m. Jan. 24 on TLC-TV in the Quad Cities.
She and her husband, Geneseo attorney Jim Nash, will travel to Las Vegas where Nash has been invited to participate in the pageant by introducing some of this year’s contestants in the talent competition.
All events will be held at Planet Hollywood, Nash said.
“I haven’t been back to a pageant since 2004, which was the last year the pageant was held in Atlantic City, N.J.,” she said, adding that also was the 50th anniversary of the first telecast of the Miss America Pageant.

Jackie Geist is the Californian entrant for the brush with perfection that is the Miss America pageant.

She loves visiting Disneyland, adores Keith Urban’s music and lists her favourite food as cheesecake.

But looking at the 22-year-old’s toned physique – complete with impeccable six-pack – TV viewers will soon be left to wonder exactly when the last time was that she touched any.
