Miss Delaware USA & Teen USA 2014 rundown!

UPDATE - Congratulations to Kelsey Miller, Miss Delaware USA 2014 and Mia Jones Miss Delaware Teen USA 2014!  Click here for full results and visit my Facebook page for more coverage.

Miss Delaware USA and Teen USA 2014 will be held Sunday afternoon.   Contestants are posted here - there has been a noticeable increase from last year.  

It will be a tough competition this year with all four Miss runners-up returning from last year and two of the remaining three Teen runners-up (first runner-up Hailey Lawler assumed the title in February).  You can see swimsuit and gown photos of last year’s Miss runners-up here and Teen runners-up here.  The returning Miss runners-up are Kimberly Martin (1RU), Kelsey Miller (2RU), Emily Drake (3RU) and Alina Wade (4RU, also a runner-up in 2011 and 2012).  Kelsey was Miss Delaware Teen USA 2009.  Also competing is Miss Delaware 2012 Alyssa Murray.  2013 semi-finalist and past runner-up Lauren Parkes, who has competed every year since 2008, is competing for the final time before she ages out.  Nadirah Aaliyah, a Teen runner-up in 2012 and 2011, and Emily Wareheim, second runner-up at Miss MD Teen USA 2012, have moved up to the Miss competition.  Past Maryland and Pennsylvania contestant Rachel Humerick is competing in Delaware for the first time.

Only two newcomers (Nicole Bosso and Krista Clausen) have won Miss DE USA in the past decade, so it will be interesting to see if that trend continues.  Also, there hasn’t been a blonde winner since 2005!

In Teen, Elizabeth Schreiber, 2RU and Brighid Minemier, 3RU are back, as well as 2013 semi-finalists Candice Bannister-Gibbs and Brielle Close.

Miss Delaware USA & Teen USA 2013 results!

Apologies for not getting a contestant rundown up for Delaware this year… had a busy weekend and by the time the list was up I didn’t have time to do a blog post.  The new Miss Delaware USA 2013 is Rachel Baiocco, a 2012 semi-finalist, and Miss Delaware Teen USA 2013 is Melissa King, who won a non-finalist interview award last year.  Rachel was the contestant immediately in front of winner Krista Clausen in last year’s lineup and the two are friends.  Miss Delaware Teen USA 2010 Kelsey Miller placed second runner-up, extending the list of former Teens who have made the top five but not won (see the history of former Teens competing in Delaware here).
