Two years ago, Leigh-Taylor Smith Miss New York 2008, was invited to Mr. Vorheesville and didn’t exactly know what to expect. It was a pageant for high school boys as a fundraiser supporting the high school volleyball team and SADD – Students Against Destructive Decisions. Well, I’m glad she didn’t tell me too much about the event so that I could be as blown away as I was. I had a blast, let me tell you. 12 guys competed in a Survivor-themed opening number, casual wear, talent, evening wear and on-stage questions. The emcee was hysterical, constantly badgering Max to my right, Mr. Vorheesville 2009 (good choice Leigh-Taylor!), a clear crowd favorite.

|evening wear with their escorts - perhaps this is why JD won|
Judging was hard! I guess it set me up for this summer… Your Mr. Vorheesville 2010 is JD, a soccer- and baseball-playing, sports-loving gentleman with a cool swagger and heartfelt preparation. Hey, I announced that he is more than welcome to come on down to compete in Mr. New York on June 13th as our kick-off event of pageant week! We’ll see if he comes! The 7 hours I spent in the car with Linda Carbo were undoubtedly hilarious and awesome – the next girl is really in for a treat with this one J
|me with all the Mr. Vorheesvilles - what great guys!|
