And the final night preliminary winners are:
Miss Maryland and Miss Pennsylvania!
Miss Maryland – Lifestyle & Fitness
Miss Pennsylvania – Talent
That brings my preliminary total to four out of six, which is the same as two out of three, which again, according to Meatloaf, ain’t too shabby. Now that the preliminaries are over, fifteen contestants have earned their way to the finals. Of course, we will not find out who they are until Sunday night. In addition, America gets to vote one special contestant into the finals, for a total of 16 finalists.
Interesting fact: Did you know that every gown that will be worn in the Pageant this year was made and designed in my home state of Arkansas? http://www.arkansasmatters.com/story/d/story/only-in-arkansas-one-designer-dresses-all-miss-ame/32659/Z4qTWTlCQUahKtkmpXp_bA
The ladies can thank Tony Bowls of England, Arkansas for their elegant evening wear. I don’t know him personally but he lives about 20 minutes from where I grew up. Great work, Tony!
Who will the new Miss America be? All will be revealed in the next 72 hours.
