Kathy Ireland burps on demand at Miss America

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Add a new talent to supermodel Kathy Ireland's portfolio: burping.

A celebrity judge at this year's Miss America pageant, Ireland was challenged Wednesday night by pageant host Dena Blizzard to reveal an interesting fact about herself that no one knows.

Ireland claimed she could "burp the alphabet."

Blizzard, a former Miss New Jersey and now a standup comedian, challenged Ireland to do it onstage.

Ireland admitted she really can't burp the alphabet, but she did let out a loud belch on command from the stage during the second night of preliminary competition.

The actual talent portion of the evening was won by Miss Kentucky Ramsey Carpenter, who played the fiddle.

Blizzard lauded Ireland, saying, "You just made supermodels cool!"
