The actress is co-hosting the 2009 Miss USA Pageant this Sunday (Apr. 19) on NBC, and admits shes too much of a goofball to ever win a beauty contest herself.
In fact, when she was a teenager, Velazquez entered a local Latina pageant and knew right off the bat that the crown wasnt hers.
She says, I was too much of a clown. When I get nervous, I crack up. Plus, smiling that much really hurt my cheeks.
However, the beauty contest wasnt entirely a lost cause and Velazquez walked away with the title of Best Dressed.
Since then, shes opted to watch pageants on TV with her family instead of competing in them, and looks forward to two things while doing so: The evening gown competition and watching her shy dad gawk at the ladies.
