Winners of Mr. and Mrs. Special Interest Announced Last Night

While the THON Executive Committee and Captains are chomping at the bit for the best weekend of the year to roll around, so are all of the Special Interest orgs. At last night’s third-annual Mr. and Mrs. Special Interest fundraiser, student volunteers from more tha 10 different orgs filled up Forum to witness Lindsey Golden and Eric Brennan of A-7 be crowned Mr. and Mrs. Special Interest.

All of the Special Interest orgs were invited to submit a pair from their organization to compete in three riveting categories: talent, costume, and interview. A panel of judges was selected carefully, some of them being Mr. R&R Tyler Bank and Mrs. Entertainment Lindsay Bloom, both of whom were crowned Mr. and Mrs. THON 2014.

As first place winners, Golden and Brennan won 25 percent of the money raised for Mr. and Mrs. SI to put toward A-7’s THON total. Second place winners from FOTO received 15 percent for their org, and third place winners from Bee House earned 10 percent.

With the talent portion of the competition being the most weighted, Golden and Brennan knew they had to go all out. They performed a skit, acting like they were the craziest Moralers that THON has ever seen with their very own cheers to top it off.

“Mostly, I just feel surprised,” Brennan said when asked how he felt about winning. “Our first thoughts were that we don’t have a talent, so we figured our talent would be to see how much we could embarrass ourselves and I think we succeeded at that.”

Wearing nothing but smiles as friends from all different orgs ran to congratulate her, Golden couldn’t have been happier about her new title. “I’m just really excited that we got to come out here and represent our organization,” said Golden. “We got to let everyone know what A-7 is all about, and I’m glad that we could bring home the win for our Penn State family.”

Congratulations to all of the participants in Mr. and Mrs. Special Interest, and thanks for an exhilarating show. We THON in 14 days!
