Ryan Wright-Amundson and Gina Giacomini probably weren’t
the king and queen of their high school proms. But their geekiness
earned them royal status during Duluth’s Geek Prom on
“I was dumbfounded,” said Wright-Amundson, who
works at the Whole Foods Co-op and is a sculptor. “I
was pretty excited; I hammed it up the best I could.”
If things go right, the royal geekinesses could end up on
“The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”
“The Tonight Show” wants to see footage of the
show, then will consider booking the king and queen geek,
organizers Paul Lundgren and Scott Lunt said.
Duluth’s first Geek Prom attracted national media attention.
Radio stations KIRO in Seattle and KMPH in Fresno, Calif.,
both did live on-air interviews with Lundgren and Lunt, and
the CBS Radio Network recorded an interview with Lundgren
for a nationwide news piece.
