Randolph, NJ -- On a night that was long awaited due to a snow storm canceling the original date, Alex Wang came out on top in the annual “Mr. RHS” competition on Feb. 20  at Randolph High School. 

“Honestly, Mr. RHS was a lot of fun and it was really cool to see all of the talents that my fellow competitors had. It was definitely an honor to win Mr. RHS in front of all my friends.” Wang overtook the seven other seniors by singing Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” to Mr. Pignaloso, or Mr. P, as everyone calls him. “It was very entertaining and a overall great addition to the show and act for the audience to witness,” said fellow competitor Nate Pangaro.

Although Alex Wang won Mr. RHS, there were plenty of other great talents performed by the other seven seniors who performed. Tommy Pastilha took home second place by performing a salsa dance with fellow senior Molly Becker, and Spanish teacher Mrs. Ferrantino. Tommy Schimminger performed a song while playing the guitar, earning him third place.

Other contestants and talents included Patrick Lucas singing Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York”, JW MacKay performing a group dance, and Chris Zelley going on a fishing trip. Nate Pangaro got the loudest applause from the crowd after he performed a Lady Gaga medley. Not to be outdone, Matt Byrne finished up the talent portion of the evening with singing.

The contestants then moved onto the interview portion, where emcees Evan Floris and Mark Lucivero asked them questions based on a random question spinner displayed on the projectors on the side of the auditorium.

After all of the interviews were complete, the judges had a tough decision to make. The judges included Mrs. Stierch, Ms. Valvano, Mrs. Ferrantino, Mrs. Poff, and Mr. Horner.

After reading the biographies of all eight contestants, the emcees announced that Wang would be the winner of this year’s Mr. RHS. He, along with his promoters, Alyssa D’Egidio and Angela DeStefanis, won free prom bids to senior prom this year.

Overall it was a great night for the entire senior class and one that will not be forgotten.

The diner became a ...
