2nd Annual Mr. Viking Contest

By Madison Anderson, Alex Harrison, Anna Breeden, and Tiara Irvin

On Thursday, March 20, the second annual Mr. Viking Contest was held.  Each contestant competed in four categories: formal wear, beach wear, talent, and interview.  Each high school class and club had a representative in the contest.  Between each category, Wes Clark auctioned off items that had been donated from local businesses or collected from various organizations at the school.  All proceeds from the night’s events go to the Letterman’s club.

The night began on in interesting note with a performance from “Purple Kiss,” better known as the football coaches.  Coaches L. Burchett, Riggs, Dean, Stahl, and B. Burchett combined their talents for the opening act lip-syncing to Kiss’s “Rock ‘n Roll.” 

Taking the crown of Mr. Viking this year was senior, Jackson Eberle.  Jackson was representing the senior class.  The judges were impressed by Jackson’s numerous poses in the formal wear competition and his creative poetry readings in the talent competition. 

The first category of the night was formal wear.  This category was won by senior, Jake Lambertz.  Many of the contestants wore suits, but some tried to be creative by wearing colorful pants or jeans.  In the end, the suits won out along with the contestants’ ability to pose and play to the audience. 

The winner of the beach wear was junior, Michael O’Brien. He wore his swim trunks with a lobster attached to his back side. There was a wide variety of beach wear amongst all the contestant. For example, Wyatt Mabary wore a barrel for his beach attire.

The winner of the talent category was senior, Clay Dahman. He sang and played the guitar while John Allin played the harmonica and Wyatt Mabary played the guitar and sang backup vocals.  Although they performed together, the judges score them individually for their talents.  Joel Suarez also entertained the audience with a stunning piano performance.  Other talents included lip-syncing and dancing, comedy, and saxophone playing. 

Wyatt Mabary won the interview category of the Mr. Viking pageant.  Wyatt drew Ms. Pickard’s name out of the hat.  His question was “How would you describe the color purple to a blind person.”  Instead of answering the question directly, Wyatt chose to chastise Ms. Pickard for discriminating against blind people and telling her that she should be ashamed of herself.   

Coach Larry Burchett and the Letterman’s club would like to thank all contestants and judges, those who donated items to auction, and those who purchased items at the auction, and all those in attendance.  This has really become a fun event for everyone involved and we hope to keep it going as an annual event.
