The newly crowed Miss America isn’t fighting for world peace, she is trying to get a date with Super Bowl winning quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
At last night’s Miss America pageant, Miss Wisconsin Laura Kaeppeler introduced herself and state giving a nod to the Green Bay Packers, the NFL’s defending Super Bowl champions. Kaeppeler told the camera, watched by 8 million Americans, “If you’re watching, Aaron Rodgers, call me.”
While Rodgers was probably watching the Denver Broncos- New England Patriots game, the Pats blowout boosted the ratings to the Miss America pageant. The pageant’s ratings jumped by 2.8 million viewers at the Broncos- Patriots halftime.
Kaeppeler was crowned Miss America making her the second winner from her home state of Wisconsin. Unfortunately for Rodgers, we all can’t be winners, and the Packers were upset by the New York Giants in the NFC Divisional Playoffs, losing 37-2 on Sunday.
