'Miss America' Broadcast Misspells Jane Austen As 'Jane Austin'

Looks like someone at the "Miss America" pageant is lacking a little sense and sensibility.

During Sunday night's broadcast, bits of trivia about each contestant popped up on the screen, including the fact that Miss New York Kira Kazantsev (who would go on to win the contest) "loves anything Jane Austin."

Of course, the author's name is spelled Jane Austen.

The mistake didn't go unnoticed on Twitter:

Turns out, Jane Austin was also an author: a 19th-century American novelist and short story writer who penned more than 20 books.

The "Austin" error wasn't the only thing unusual about on-screen bits of trivia. Mashable has a look at some of the truly odd "facts" to pop up during the show, such as a contestant terrified of frogs, one attacked by a cheetah and a young lady nicknamed "Bob."
