ASB recently crowned a Mr. Brea and a teacher Mr. Brea.

Students and teachers contestants were nominated by the boy's senior class. The pageant was sold out, according to producer and project manager Nicole McEntee. Nicole chose "Calling All Heroes" for her theme.

Student participants in the pageant included Zane Morris, Mark McMillan, Daniel Santosa, Caleb Espinoza, Shawn Johnson, Robert Rodriquez, Herman Hope, Issa Abuelnasr and Matt Schade. Teacher participants included Jonathan Quiming, Jeremy Mattern, Mike Baker and Jay Perez.

Nicole said the talent was amazing and surprising. Shawn read a serious poem, Robert held a hotdog contest, Daniel made cookies with a horrible looking goop and then they turned out perfect and Herman sang "If I were Mr. Rich Man." All the talent was outstanding.

Herman was crowned Mr. Brea. He said he displays the crown on his piano where everybody can see it. Herman, who is planning to attend Northern Arizona University, said after he captured the Mr. Brea title he couldn't stop smiling.

Zane Morris was runner-up.

Jonathan Quiming was crowned Mr. Brea Teacher and Jay Perez was named runner-up. The English literature teacher called himself Mr. Match for his talent and made a DVD helping guys get a date.

The Mr. Brea contest is always so fun to watch. I'll never forget when the GITA/Computer Science teacher, Todd Salesky, got down on his knee and proposed to his escort, Noel, at the end of the pageant in 1998, and it was for real. The audience went wild. The crowd went wild this year, too.
