Mr. UVU 2009 crowned

Spencer Dahl was named the winner of the Pirate themed Mr. UVU pageant last week. Dahl fought off eleven other contestants for the title, showing off their talents, swimsuits and evening-wear.

Dahl, 24, is an undeclared major at UVU. His hobbies include football, baseball, snowboarding, cheer/stunting, reading and learning.

Dahl’s talent included telling jokes, singing and seeing how many marshmallows he could catch in his mouth. His on-stage question was about his favorite spot on campus, he responded by first mimicking Miss North Carolina from the Miss Teen USA pageant for the most part and then answered with the cafeteria as his favorite spot.

The opening production number featured all contestants in pirate attire performing a dance number. Swimwear was next, with some wearing swim shorts, pirate wear and Speedos.

Talent was performed afterwards with a wide variety displayed such as Dance Dance Revolution, monologues and dancing. Notable performances include Andrew Wilcox’s dance in a Speedo to Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put a ring on it)” and Jonathan Young’s drum routine with sound, but with no drums.

Another contestant, Wes Tolman, dressed and acted as Jack Sparrow throughout the entire program and had a very close resemblance to him.

Evening wear and the on-stage question were the concluding competition rounds with the final results announced.

Daniel Denny was named Mr. Congeniality with Jose Catillo named as second attendant and Jonathan Young as third attendant. They, along with Dahl, won cash prizes.
