OBSESSED!: Miss America Takes AIDS Education to Middle America

After winning the Miss America crown in 1998, Kate Shindle (Wonderland, Legally Blonde) created an initiative to educate and raise awareness about HIV/AIDS prevention in schools across the country. Kate talks to Seth about the challenges of bringing her agenda to conservative towns, and the tricks of talking about things she wasn't allowed to talk about. On a much lighter note, Kate caps off her visit by demonstrating how several Broadway shows could have had much longer runs, had her astronomical high note been introduced into their scores.
