Miss Food Freezer

Continuing our exploration of strange beauty contests, here's the Miss Food Freezer contest of 1951.

Arizona Republic - Mar 6, 1951

The favorite to win seemed to be Marianne Davis, who had already won the title of Miss General Electric. I could be wrong, but in the publicity photo below I think they've got her wrapped in freezer wrap while she sits on top of a deep freeze.

Arizona Republic - Mar 19, 1951

And sure enough, Marianne Davis won the coveted title of Miss Food Freezer. As far as I can tell, 1951 was the only year the contest was held. So she was the one and only Miss Food Freezer.

Was the winner the one with the best pokies?

Actually, I know Miss Deep Freeze. She lives in San Francisco. I had a date with her.

Don Morgan has quite the smirk. Wonder what he's doing with his right hand?
