We all know that the talent portion of a beauty pageant has to be there so its organizers and participants can prove that it's not "all about looks." Until pageant-lovers can give themselves a cold, harsh look in the mirror and admit that the beauty they're judging is skin deep, we're stuck with what are often highly mediocre talent performances.
Luckily, it's not all "Over the Rainbow" and ballet en pointe. Some of these contestants actually are unique and have some level of imagination. Or else they're incredibly dumb and have no idea to what extent they're making fools of themselves. Either way, their totally strange abilities are there for us to enjoy. With the 2013 Miss America pageant airing Saturday at 9 p.m. EST on ABC, we bring you The 25 Weirdest Beauty Pageant Talents. And no, sadly Molly Ringwald's lipstick trick doesn't appear on this list.
