Turns out you don’t actually have to live in Brooklyn to be crowned Miss Brooklyn! None of the IAYM crew has dubunked to Brooklyn (yet), but next year we could feasibly enter, and win (well, winning a beauty pageant might be a stretch).

According to NY Mag’s Intelligencer, this year’s winner lives in Manhattan — GASP! And, the show’s judges knew about it and didn’t really care.
“We only had a few committed girls from Brooklyn,” Kim Thomas, the executive director of the Miss Brooklyn Scholarship Program, explained to the paper. “We couldn’t have a contest with only three girls.”
Seriously?? Then, what’s the point?
