Kitty Hiccups captures 2011 Miss'd America crown

Kitty Hiccups captures 2011 Miss'd America crown

January 17th, 2011 in News

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - The top cat at this year's Miss'd America pageant is the leopard print-clad Kitty Hiccups.

Hiccups, also known as 32-year-old David Hyland, was crowned the 2011 Miss'd America on Sunday night at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.

The irreverent - and usually hilarious - drag-queen pageant began in 1993, always the day after the Miss America Pageant.

The popular fundraiser returned bigger and better last year after a 5-year absence. The Miss'd America pageant takes place on the same runway once used by the "real" beauty queens, who have since moved on to Las Vegas.

The Press of Atlantic City reports that this year's pageant featured eight contestants.
