WE HAVE A NEW MISS AMERICA!!!! Congratulations to Miss North Dakota, Cara Mund, Miss America 2018!!! If you missed last night's pageant I've got a full recap coming at you right meowww.....
To start off the night, they cut the contestants down to Top 15: Alabama, Alaska, DC, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia....these 15 girls competed in the swimsuit competition.
They then made a cut to Top 12: Alabama, DC, Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, New Jersey, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia....they all competed in evening wear then there was another cut....to Top 10 and TALENT!!
Top 10 competing in Talent included: Alabama (Vocal), DC (Vocal), Louisiana (Ventriloquist), Missouri (Bollywood Dance), New Jersey (Dance), North Dakota (Dance), Pennsylvania (Saxophone), South Carolina (Dance), Texas (Dance), Virginia (Dance).
Next was something different....they cut to a Top 7 and each lady was asked a goofy question by a judge....the Top 7 was: Alabama, DC, Louisiana, Missouri, New Jersey, North Dakota, Texas.
Finally the final cut....Top 5 where each contestant was asked a classic "final question" usually difficult and more than likely political in some way....this created the final result:
4th Runner-Up: Texas
3rd Runner-Up: DC
2nd Runner-Up: New Jersey
1st Runner-Up: Missouri
Miss America 2018: North Dakota
Fun fact about Miss North Dakota.....she is the first Miss North Dakota to break the Top 10 and obviously become Miss America! She is a graduate of Brown University and was accepted into the Notre Dame Law School. I have a feeling we will be in for a great year with our new Miss America!
