Most of the women shown in the videa are from states in what is considered the "Bible Belt:" Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, Missouri, Louisiana, and Alabama are definitely in that region, and Indiana is borderline.

A couple of the responses seem to be politically correct non-answers. "I think we should let the government decide." The ignorance of that reply is appalling.

Considering that most of them at least thought it should be taught (even if they had dumb stipulations); I think that's an improvement over what people in similar positions would have said not too long ago.

That's probably true.

Well as my friend Carl always used to say "Never say pretty but dumb, always say pretty and dumb".

They aren't even that pretty its certainly nothing more than what a tonne of make-up, fake tan, hair extensions, and hair spray can help achieve. I always say "dumb is never pretty".

For the life of me I don't understand why these things don't accept that they're nothing but a cattle auction and just pare it down to the swimsuit contest.  It would simplify things and I can't imagine any unhappy viewers.

I say "I'll do whatever the government decides" whenever something is a non-issue for me.

Were they all really so dumb ? Struck me some of them were just being studiedly evasive and were anxious not to adopt a committal position on a divisive issue which might antagonise viewers or whatever other electorate else was deciding their fate. 
Some ideas are so stupid only an intellectual could believe them (Orwell).

My favorite line...Ms Idaho "We need to be knowledged about it."   I also like how many of them don't seem to realize that it already is taught in schools.

These women are supposed to be the epitomy of hotness... When did stupid and ignorant become the new sexy?

For the simpleton male, it's always been that way.
