Q: This popular male entertainer once competed with girls in beauty pageants as a child.

A: Blake Shelton

Shelton’s mom may have had a different future in mind for her son. When he was 8 years old, she entered him in beauty pageants to sing. He confessed on Entertainment Tonight that there were no pageants for boys — so he competed with girls. He said it was a good way to pick up chicks.

Congratulations to Mike Israel of Indianapolis, today’s Smartest Hoosier Ever, and has won tickets to see Chris Young in concert, Saturday July 13th at Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center.  Your tickets are here.
