Miss Arkansas USA & Teen USA 2014 results!

Helen Wisner had an amazing night on Sunday, winning the Miss Arkansas USA 2014 title… and getting proposed to by her now-fiance!  Miss Arkansas Teen USA 2014 is Lauren Weaver.

Both Helen and Lauren made the top five last year, with Helen placing first runner-up and Lauren third runner-up (for the second year in a row).  Helen is the first returning 1RU to win Miss Arkansas USA since at least 2000, when my records start.  She is one of only two in the past eight titleholders who had competed in the USA system before she won.  The past three titleholders were all newbies.

Helen competed at Miss Arkansas (America) twice, winning Alpha prelim awards but never placing.  She competed at Miss Arkansas 2012 with her predecessor Hannah Billingsley and at Miss Arkansas 2011 with both Hannah and Miss Arkansas USA Kelsey Dow.  In fact, seven of the past eight Miss Arkansas USA titleholders have past MAO experience, with only Lakynn McBride not having competed in that system.  Amazingly, Helen, Miss Arkansas USA 2008 Rachel Howells, Miss AR USA 2009 Chanley Painter AND Miss AR USA 2010 Adrielle Churchill all won the “Miss White River” local title during their MAO career.

Helen’s first runner-up Adrianna Nelson is also a MAO veteran, having placed first runner-up at Miss Texas 2011 & 2012 (ouch :(  poor thing!).  Second runner-up Leah Blefko was competing in Miss for the first time, having been first runner-up at Miss Kansas Teen USA 2012 and third runner-up Allison Kusenberger (Miss AR Teen USA 2009) and fourth runner-up Kyndal Hayes both made the top five for the second year in a row.  Helen won the interview award, Adrianna won gown and Kyndal won swimsuit.

In the Teen competition, first runner-up Abby Marrin and third runner-up Haley Bird were both returning semi-finalists from 2013.  Fourth runner-up Makenzie Sexton repeated her placement from 2013 and second runner-up KeLee King was the only newcomer in the top five.  The semi-finalist group included four contestants who were semi-finalists in 2012, three of whom were non-finalists last year.  Leah was the interview winner, Abby won gown and Makenzie won swimsuit.

Miss Nevada USA & Teen USA 2014 results

Miss Nevada USA 2014 is Nia Sanchez and Miss Nevada Teen USA 2014 is Alexa Taylor.  Click their names to view their profiles, which have more photos.  

Both Nia and Alexa live in the Las Vegas area.  Of the pair, only Nia has competed in the USA system previously.  She was second runner-up at Miss California USA 2010 (behind Nicole Johnson and Miss USA 2012 Nana Meriwether) and top 20 in California in 2011 and 2012.  

Nia’s first runner-up was newcomer Stephanie Cook, second runner-up was 2013 semi-finalist Jessica Davis.  Both the third and fourth runners-up are past California contestants, third runner-up Brittany McGowan making the top five in a USA state pageant for the second time and Cierra Jackson for her first, having been a semi-finalist in 2012 but a non-finalist in 2010, 2011 and 2013.

The top 10 bracket consisted of two past Nevada semi-finalists and Miss Nevada Teen USA 2010 first runner-up Cory Bradley and the top 15 included three-time runner-up Whitney Green, 2013 third runner-up Talyah Polee, past Texas semi-finalist Jordan Johannsen and California semi-finalists Mary-Kate Fitzpatrick and Susan Romanishin.  Of the top 15, five competed at Miss California USA 2012.

Miss Nevada Teen USA 2007 Danielle Hashimoto, 2013 semi-finalist Kimberly Andres, and past Florida contestant Anastasia Pavlenko failed to make the cut.

In the Teen competition most of the contestants were newcomers so there were no noticeable trends, although it should be noted returning runner-up Marilyn Kennedy placed 4th runner-up (she was 3RU last year and 2RU in 2012).

Congratulations to this weekend’s six winners!  Only two more states to go :)  Profiles are up for the Miss states now, with lots of photos, and TEEN PROFILES ARE UP NOW TOO!

Miss Kentucky USA & Teen USA 2014 contestant rundown!

UPDATE!  Congratulations to Destin Kincer, Miss Kentucky USA 2014 & Megan Ducharm, Miss Kentucky Teen USA 2014!  Click their names to view their profiles.

Miss Kentucky USA & Teen USA 2014 start at 7pm and I should be able to post updates at my Facebook page (expect a results rundown post after the show).

I am very grateful to have been sent the contestant list, as KY is a rather mysterious state which never posts their contestants and is hard to find photos of!  So this is fun :)

Firstly, there is only one 2013 runner-up returning, Emily Bryant who was 2RU last year.  There are two former Miss Kentucky Teen USA titleholders (off the top of my head, this is the first time since 2006 that two are back), Katrina Giannini, Miss KY Teen USA 2007, who was 2RU in 2012 and Stephanie Jones, Miss KY Teen USA 2011 who is competing in Miss for the first time.

Stephanie’s first runner-up in 2011 Destin Kincer (also a Teen fourth runner-up in 2010) is back to compete in Miss.  There are two 2013 semi-finalists and two other semi-finalists from other years back.

Megan Kassama was Miss Kentucky County Fair in 2010.  The importance of this shouldn’t be overlooked - past Miss KY County Fair queens have included Tara Conner (2004, Miss KY USA 2006 & Miss USA), Maria Montgomery (2008, Miss KY USA 2010 & 4RU at Miss USA), Lori Mitchell (2000, Miss KY USA 2004), Jo Pritchard (1999, Miss KY USA 2001), Jolene Youngster (1995, Miss KY USA 2000) , Lori West (1994, Miss KY USA 1996) and Mitzi Jones (1992, Miss KY USA 1995)!

In Teen, it appears that the only returning contestant is Madelyn Carek, 3RU last year.  Of course because I don’t have lists from 2012 and 2013 I can’t note any past non-finalists. (update - I totally missed that winner Megan Ducharm was 1RU in 2013, as I was given the incorrect spelling of her name last year!)

Miss Nevada USA & Teen USA 2014 contestant rundown!

UPDATE!  Congratulations to Nia Sanchez, Miss Nevada USA 2014 & Alexa Taylor, Miss Nevada Teen USA 2014!  Click their names to view their profiles.

Miss Nevada USA & Teen USA prelims and finals are being held on Sunday, with prelims in the afternoon and finals in the evening.  Contestants are posted here.  I’ll be posting photos and updates on my Facebook pageover the weekend (there are already photos of lead-up events!).

Super strong competition this year, with some returning NV contestants and a number who have previously competed in other states, including no less than six from California!  Nevada has long been attractive for girls who have moved there from other states (whether they competed in pageants or not), with original 2007 winner Katie Rees coming from Florida, 2008 winner Veronica Grabowski from Texas, 2011 winner Sarah Chapman from California, Miss NV USA 2012 Jade Kelsall from New Jersey and Miss NV USA 2013 Chelsea Caswell from Indiana via Missouri.  

There is one former Teen returning, Miss Nevada Teen USA 2007 Danielle Hashimoto.  There are two returning top five contestants from last year, 2RU Whitney Green (also a runner-up in 2010 & 2011) and 3RU Talyah Polee.  Returning semi-finalists are Jessica Davis and Chris Salas and from 2012, Felice Garcia.  2010 Teen first runner-up Cory Bradley is competing in Miss Nevada USA for the first time.

The California girls are 2012 fourth runner-up and three-time semi-finalist Brittany McGowan, 2010 second runner-up and two-time semi-finalist Nia Sanchez, 2012 semi-finalists Susan Romanishin and Cierra Jackson and non-finalist Alexis Rivera.

From Texas there is 2013 Miss TX USA semi-finalist and first runner-up at Miss Texas 2010 Jordan Johannsen and from Florida, Anastasia Pavlenko.

It’s wonderful to see such a great rise in Teen contestant numbers, given only a few years ago they were lucky to hit double digits!  Not surprisingly most of the contestants are new, although I’m disappointed not to see more of last year’s top five back as it was a really great group.  The returnees are Marilyn Kennedy, 3RU last year and 2RU in 2012, 2013 semi-finalist Kiara Bettis and 2013 non-finalist Mackenzie Zurcher. Should be a great competition though as there are lots of really stunning Teens!

In Teen, 2013 and 2012 third runner-up Lauren Weaver is back, as well as 2013 fourth runner-up Makenzie Sexton.  2013 semi-finalists Haley Bird and Abby Marrin are back, andthere are three contestants who were semi-finalists in 2012 but non-finalists last year, which is quite unusual.

Just have to add I’m sad not to see Kayla DelSanto competing this year!  Kayla, please come back :)

In Teen, first runner-up was Miss Greater San Diego Gigi Gauthier, nearly making it four in a row for past Miss GSD Teen contestants (Alexis Swanstrom & Cassidy Wolf were past titleholders, Alexa Jones was a runner-up).  Second runner-up was newcomer Madison Day-Robinson, third runner-up was 2013 semi-finalist & 2012 second runner-up Toneata Morgan and fourth runner-up was newcomer Melanie Mitchell.
