Wil­liam Macmil­lan won the ti­tle 2018 Mr. Brandy­wine dur­ing the Brandy­wine Heights High School’s an­nual Mr. Brandy­wine pageant held in March.

This pageant con­sists of a dance opener, in­ter­views, tal­ent, swim­suit, and fi­nally for­mal wear. The boys were judged on each cat­e­gory in­di­vid­u­ally and the points they ob­tained de­ter­mine who is this year’s Mr. Brandy­wine.

Aside from the ti­tle of Mr. Brandy­wine this com­pe­ti­tion, also has a Peo­ple’s Choice Award won by Zayn Deeter.

Dur­ing the open­ing scene for this event con­sisted of the guys danc­ing to Shakira’s hit, “Hips don’t lie.” This

was a dance put to­gether and chore­ographed prior to the show.

This year’s par­tic­i­pants were Mcguire Gail­ing, Jor­dan Grace, Wil­liam Macmil­lan, Der­ick Wartzen­luft, and fi­nally Zayn Deeter.

The next piece was the tal­ent piece. Dur­ing this part of the show Mcguire shared his vo­cal ca­pa­bil­i­ties which have been proven time and again through his par­tic­i­pa­tion in the schools choir and Cham­ber singers group.

Next up was Jared who played the song, “All Star,” by Smash Mouth. This was played on his gui­tar as he sang along.

Fol­low­ing this per­for­mance Der­ick played his drums rather im­pres­sively.

Jor­dan, who is a stand­ing mem­ber of the school Drama Club, per­formed a mono­logue that was all too funny for the sim­plic­ity of it show­ing a tal­ent of a true per­former. The premise of the mono­logue was a man found a dead cat on the road and was pray­ing to God for quite a few min­utes and hav­ing a type of fu­neral up un­til the point the man re­al­ized that the cat was ac­tu­ally a rac­coon mak­ing the man cast it aside.

Fol­low­ing this dra­matic per­for­mance Wil­liam played a pi­ano piece that made some­one think Beethoven was sit­ting in the very room playing away at the pale as snow keys.

Fi­nally, for the act that had the whole room ec­static, Zayn’s per­for­mance with his cousin was a lit­tle some­thing called beach ball bal­lea which won him the Peo­ple’s Choice Award.

Dur­ing the for­mal sec­tion, some no­table things that hap­pened are that Zayn pro­pose to a young lady and also did it be­fore Jared did caus­ing Jared to say, “Well I was go­ing to pro­pose to Emily, but Zayn stole my thun­der so I guess my in­ter­est­ing fact is that I don’t have an in­ter­est­ing fact.”

Some other per­for­mances to take up some time be­tween tran­si­tion was done by Alyana Bilt­cliff, Jo­han­nah Fink, and fi­nally Mar­ley Turbett. Host­ing dur­ing the show was done pre­cisely well by Erin Sabol, a se­nior at the school.

Fi­nally the win­ners of the cat­e­gories of the show are the fol­low­ing. Wil­liam won the tal­ent sec­tion. Mcguire won the swim­suit and the dance sec­tions. The for­mal sec­tion was won by Jor­dan. The win­ner of the Mr. Brandy­wine ti­tle was Wil­liam. Run­ner ups for this con­test were Mcguire and Jor­dan.
