Saints & sinners: who's watching your back and who's putting a knife in it.

Miss Kansas 2013 Theresa Vail is not just another babe in the woods. The blonde bombshell is a pro-gun proponent and certified expert marksman as a member of Kansas Army National Guard. Vail also considers herself more bowhunter than beauty queen, having picked up a bow last season after years of hunting with both rifles and shotguns. "It just feels more natural and more of a challenge," Vail told The Wichita Eagle. "I've just fallen in love with the whole thing." Well, we admit to being smitten, too, especially when we found out she didn't shy away from her hunting background during the Miss Kansas competition. Instead, she ran on a platform encouraging young women to give outdoor activities a shot, stating on her website "[she] found her strength and confidence when she started hunting and competitively shooting What's a washed-up beauty pageant contestant to do once the crown no longer fits their already oversized head made even bigger by a bloated sense of self-worth? Gather a group of like-minded attention whores and strip naked, of course, along with whatever dignity remains alter a lifetime of getting by on looks alone. Desperate for attention, former Miss USA winners Susie Castillo, Shandi Finnessey, Shanna Moakler, and Alyssa Campanella are reinforcing the stereotype that sex sells by posing naked for PETA's Say No To Fur campaign. So much for the belief that beauty pageants are about empowering young women with positive messages. Instead, these misguided Misses choose to promote a sham organization that killed nearly 90 percent of the pets in its care last year, euthanizing an average of 30 dogs and cats each week.
