Ever since Sarah Palin was announced as McCain's VP running mate, many photos have circulated online that purport to be Palin in a bikini. All were Photoshopped pictures that placed her head on top of another woman; the most famous having her also toting a shotgun. Now, there is actual video footage from the Republican nominee's appearance in the 1984 Miss Alaska beauty pageant. Watch Sarah Palin's beauty pageant video below.
In the brief, 43-second video clip, Sarah Heath, appearing under her maiden name, walks out on stage while a small band plays in the background and does a few turns before the audience in a one-piece swimsuit. The announcer narrates her performance:
Contestant #8, Sarah Heath. Sarah says that she wants to prepare for a career in television broadcasting by majoring in Telecommunications and Political Science. It is no wonder that she has also been recognized by Who's Who, since she has displayed her leadership in all areas, from academics to student politics to athletics, having led her basketball team to the championship at the state tournament. Ladies and gentleman, contestant #8, Sarah Heath.
Although she didn't win the title of Miss Alaska, finishing third instead, Palin did manage to attain the crown of Miss Wasilla.
