Miss Michigan Kirsten Haglund was crowned Miss America 2008 on Saturday night in Las Vegas.

Miss America 2008: Miss Michigan Kirsten Haglund In Las Vegas on Saturday night Miss Michigan Kirsten Haglund was crowned the 2008 Miss America. The 19-year-old Farmington Hills native won $50,000 and the bragging right and promotions which come with the victory of one of the prestigious beauty pageants. Miss Michigan's platform was based on eating disorders awareness and the associated illnesses. Kirsten Haglund comes from a long line of "beauty-pageant-goers", her mother is an active volunteer, and her grandmother Iora Hunt, who was among the spectators on Saturday, competed for the crown as Miss Michigan 1944.

 Miss Indiana Nicole Elizabeth Rash was 2008 Miss America runner up and Miss Washington Elyse Umemoto was the second runner up. The crowning took place at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. Unfortunately, due to the upcoming Super Bowl, we weren't able to find odds on the Miss America 2008 by a reputable sportsbook. We were assured, however, that there will be betting odds on the upcoming major beauty pageants, domestic and international.
