I hope everyone has recovered from their March Madness, fever… and pneumonia. Congratulations to the UNC Tar Heels for their victory Monday Night, but it is now time to focus on the most important tournament happening in April. We are speaking, of course, about the "America's Hottest College Girl Contest." The field has been cut to the Sweet Sixteen, and what a sweet sixteen it is. This is where the competition really heats up. I'm here once again to recap the action and determine who has an opportunity to join the Elite Eight. "L.G.S."


North Region: This region has arguably become the strongest in the contest. For those of you still keeping track at home; Brittany H is the last Brittany standing. Although, as her victories have piled up; her picture selection has strangely dwindled. The fact she only has one lone picture remaining should be detrimental to her chances. Especially considering her next opponent is fan favorite "Cutie Kathleen." Kathleen has the killer combination of wittiness, intelligence, and beauty. That combination is, what I believe, sets her apart from her competition.


Coming into the contest, Keely was the darling of the region. However, Lisa has dominated each of her first two matchups and does pose a threat to Keely's path to the Final Four. In the end, I feel Keely's charm will just be too much and she will find herself where she belongs; among those in the Elite Eight.

West Region: Two more excellent matchups coming to you from the West. At first glance I expected Alisa to have an easy road to the Elite Eight. No worries. Then I looked closer, and suddenly the matchup might become closer than I expected. Briana has been building steam since her first round sneak attack over Victoria. But I have to put my weight behind Alisa. 


The next matchup is an epic showdown between Courtney and Jennifer. Arizona State vs. Arizona State. Both gorgeous, both ravishing, both thought to be unbeatable. Nevertheless, only one can make it to the Elite Eight. My gut instinct says Courtney will be the one moving on. But, will the curse of the modeling pictures knock Courtney off her thrown? And will Jennifer move one step closer to her chance at $5,000? Only time will tell, and only your votes can make it happen.

South Region: In my opinion, the South region has been a toss up. Everybody has a legit shot to make it all the way. The Chelsea vs. Lucy matchup is the classic blonde vs. brunette battle. Judging by the way America has been voting; I'll have to go with Lucy in a tight race. Though, don't underestimate the fact that Chelsea has used a portfolio of crawling through a sandy beach pictures to get herself this deep, in the competition. 

Kristy has been a dominant force thus far. After knocking out the adorable Adrian in the first round, she won her match with Kristen handily. She faces Lydia, who has also beaten two formidable competitors in Nicole and Brittany. After winning the NIT tournament, I'll pick Kristy to continue the Penn State Nittany Lions winning streak.

East Region: You guys are killing me in the East. As I expected, Laurel had another colossal win. And Kristen had a very huge victory over Jessica. Kristen and Laurel both had massive showings in their respected second rounds. These two meeting will be a titanic battle of the "second round killers". They both have become sleeper picks to win this whole tournament. 


Unfortunately, at the time of this writing, portfolio Autumn once again is in position to move on, as she leads Kelly K. If Laura can survive this tough matchup with Michelle she should be able to move past Autumn. And as you know, this won't be a tough decision for me because Laura is absolutely stunning.
