Lights, cameras, partially clothed boys: all was revealed at Mr. Mills.  The 15th annual Mr. Mills competition took place on Thursday, Dec. 3rd at the Lewis Mills’ Auditorium.  Fierce competition ensued as ten of the most daring senior boys battled it out for the title, glory, and an all-encompassing prom package.  However, only one could win, and this year, it was Jack Jennetta’s time to reign.

This year’s competition featured ten very unique competitors: Jack Jennetta, Chris Soliani, Jon Gorski, Tom Caruso, Marshall Cooper, Logan Worley, Jared Mihalcik, Parker Nye, Justin Neal, and Tom Disorbo.  Their closely guarded secret performances were exposed through a series of events including a questionnaire, an “untalent” show and a womenswear competition.

During the questionnaire, contestants were asked a number of questions about their love lives by hosts Kate Seelye and Mrs. Tania McNaboe.  Making a snap decision to go off script, Gorski responded to the question “What movie best describes your love life?” with a daring allusion to “Jurassic Park” rife with sexual innuendo.  Cooper also abandoned the script’s safety for this question and compared his love life to “2001: A Space Odyssey because it isn’t that great, and it takes forever to finish, but it still gets decent reviews.”

The womenswear portion of the evening took a turn for the risqué as the boys stripped down and strapped on heels.  Jennetta gave Lady Liberty a whole new meaning in a flirty Statue of Liberty get-up, while Gorski, also following an American theme, could have been Hillary Clinton’s doppelgänger.

Finally, at the end of the action-packed evening, a winner had to be announced.  Though it was a tough decision to choose from such highly-talented competitors, Jack Jennetta won the first place crown and sash.  DiSorbo snagged second place followed by Soliani in third.  Neal rounded off the winner’s circle as Mr. Congeniality.

Jennetta cites his mom as his reason for entering Mr. Mills, “Honestly, my mom said that [Mr. Mills] is the only school function that she ever wanted to see me do, so that’s why I did it.”

However, despite ending up claiming the victory, Jennetta was unsure of his chances beforehand, “I was nervous the whole show- up until I did my untalent.  When I got out there to give the George Bush speech, I just realized that, if I had fun, I could win.”  

He went on to say, “It was really awesome…when I won it was just so much relief. My mom and dad were very proud.”
