    Go to Settings>General>Siri>Language. When you do this, you will see this screen, where you can select the language, United States English in your case.

    Have you tried rebooting the iPad? Press and hold the power and home buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, then release both buttons. Let us know if that works.

    Try turning Siri off, waiting a few minutes, then turn it on again. When you slide the switch to off, you'll get this pop up.

    Try asking the male Siri for a commitment. That outta scare him away.

    In all seriousness though, Scifan's suggestion is the only one I could come across upon searching google.
    iPhone 5 16GB Black (swapping between iOS 7 Beta and stock 6.1.4)
    iPhone 4 16GB CDMA Black (iOS 7 Beta)
    iPad 4th Gen. 32GB Black WiFi only (stock 6.1.3)
