Viewers of the 2014 Miss America pageant got more than they bargained for Sunday night when cameras caught Miss Nebraska Megan Swanson opening her legs a bit too widely and accidentally showing the world way too much of herself as host Chris Harrison previewed the evening wear phase of the competition.
“Here, the judges are looking through the beautiful gowns — not literally — that would be wrong,” Harrison said, making his version of a lewd joke as something much more scandalous was happening over his shoulder. “The judges will be looking at the personal style and flair of each of these contestants.”
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Miss Nebraska did not take home the winning tiara. That honor went to Miss New York Kira Kazantsev, who wowed the judges with her unique take on the “cups” routine from the movie Pitch Perfect.
Several viewers caught the moment and drew attention to it on Twitter, causing #MissNebraska to start trending:
