On Monday, the recently-crowned Miss New Jersey, Amy Polumbo, appeared on TODAY to discuss what she called a blackmail attempt. She described how over the past two weeks, pageant officials had received two packages containing photos of Polumbo taken from her Facebook page. A letter from the anonymous sender demanded that if Polumbo didn't give up her crown, the photos would be made public.
This morning, Polumbo returned to TODAY to show the photos. WATCH VIDEO She and her lawyer said they are confident that pageant officials will not force her to give up her crown -- a decision is expected later today.
Now that you've seen some of the photos, what do you think Miss Polumbo's fate should be?
Were the photos as racy as you thought they would be?
