Cassandra Kunze is Miss California USA 2014 and Bianca Vierra is Miss California Teen USA 2014.   Click their names to view their profiles (which have more photos) and visit my Facebook page for other updates.

Both were competing in the USA system for the first time (other than local titles) but have other experience - they were both Miss Teenage California, and Bianca (2011) actually crowned Cassandra (2012)!  Bianca also won the Miss High School America 2012 title, reigning with Miss Collegiate America 2012 Haley O’Brien who is the current Miss Minnesota USA.

Cassandra is now 20 and Bianca is 18.  Bianca is the first Teen titleholder from northern California since 2007!

First runner-up in the Miss division was last year’s 3RU, and Cassandra’s local title “sister”, Miss Malibu Natasha Martinez (congratulations to Kristen Bradford).  Second runner-up was 2012 Miss US International Amanda Delgado (whose sister Emily made T10 in Teen); Miss California Teen USA 2011 Alexis Swanstrom placed 3RU (and was handed her flowers by her Teen first runner-up and outgoing Miss CA Teen USA Chloe Hatfield) and fourth runner-up was 2012 Teen semi-finalist Lauren York.  

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.

Miss Minnesota USA & Teen USA 2014 results

Haley O’Brien of Excelsior is the new Miss Minnesota USA 2014 and Catherine Stanley of Bloomington is Miss Minnesota Teen USA 2014.  

Haley is the first former Teen titleholder to win Miss MN USA since Alla Ilushka, Miss Minnesota Teen USA 2002, won in 2007.  Catherine is the fourth consecutive newcomer to win the Teen titleholder.

The only newcomer in the Miss top five was newcomer Kayla Casciano.  2012 semi-finalists Jessica Scheu and Brittany Dyshaw, neither of whom competed last year, were first and third runners-up respectively, and Miss Minnesota Teen USA 2007 Vanessa Vonbehren placed fourth runner-up.  Brie Anderson made the top 15 and has sadly aged out after competing every year since 2006 (and in Teen in 2005).  2009 and 2010 Teen runner-up Ashley Johnson missed the cut for the second time.

In the Teen competition, the top five were all new.  2013 first runner-up Dasia Mestad made the semi-finals and 2012 first runner-up Marina Kong won the non-finalist swimsuit award.

Miss Georgia USA 2014 is Tiana Griggs of Monticello and Miss Georgia Teen USA is Noelle Hughley of Lithonia.  Click their names to view their profiles or visit my Facebook page for more Miss USA & Teen USA coverage.

Off the top of my head Noelle is only the second African-American to win the Teen title, and it’s also a rarity that both titleholders are African-American.  A lot of attention had been focussed first runner-up Jamie Kelton and the three former Teens competing but at the end of the night it was Tiana, last year’s second runner-up, who stole the judges hearts & won the crown :)  Following the recent trend with Georgia Teens, Noelle had not competed previously.

Jamie Kelton placed third runner-up on her last try (and will forever be in my heart as one of those girls who I can’t believe never got a shot at the Miss USA title), Miss Georgia Teen USA 2009 and Miss Teen USA first runner-up Brooke Fletcher placed second runner-up and newbies Keila Diaz and Emanii Davis placed first and fourth runners-up respectively.

In Teen, the first three runners-up were all new, while 2013 third runner-upAmelia Huntplaced 4RU.

Miss Massachusetts USA and Teen USA 2014 results

Caroline Lunny was crowned Miss Massachusetts USA 2014 on Sunday evening, while Bailey Medeiros won Miss Massachusetts Teen USA.  Click their names to view their profiles (which have crowning photos etc) and visit my Facebook page for more coverage.

Caroline is the fifth Miss Massachusetts Teen USA to win Miss Massachusetts USA. Here’s a fun coincidence: Miss Massachusetts Teen USA 1998 Susie Castillo won Miss Massachusetts USA and then Miss USA in 2003.  Susie’s Massachusetts Teen titleholder “little sister” was Jackie Bruno.  When Jackie won Miss Massachusetts USA in 2008, her ”little sister” was?  You guessed it, Caroline!  Love that chain and who knows, Bailey might be destined to be Miss MA USA herself one day :)

In the Miss division, 2013 second runner-up Renata De Carvalho moved up a spot to first runner-up.  Two of the other runners-up had been non-finalists last year.  2013 first runner-up and former Miss New Hampshire Reagan Hartley made the top 15, as did other past runners-up Polikseni Manxhari, Kaelyn Serra and Kate Crochetiere and Julia Scaparotti, second runner-up in Rhode Island last year.  2013 fourth and 2012 third runner-up Alison DeJesus and Miss New Hampshire Teen USA 2010 Morgan Lucas did not make the first cut.

In Teen, Pavit Arora placed first runner-up for the second year in a row, and Danae Bucci also repeated her fourth runner-up placement from last year.

Miss Connecticut USA & Teen USA 2014 results!

Miss Connecticut USA 2014 is Desirée Pérez and Miss Connecticut Teen USA 2014 is Sydney West. Can Desiree or Sydney bring a third national title in three years back to CT?

Desiree was last year’s fourth runner-up.  She recently won Miss Connecticut US International competed at Miss US International in August.  There’s a great photo on Erin Brady's profile of Erin, Kendal & Desiree making an appearance together, before Erin became Miss USA.

Sydney was competing for the first time, although her name might sound familiar - she’s the younger sister of Miss Connecticut Teen USA and Miss Teen USA 2012 Logan West!  Whilst a number of sister pairings have won state titles, and it’s more common in Teen than in Miss, this is the first time since 1980 that the sister of a past national MUO titleholder has won a state title.  Sydney might not have USA experience, but she did place third runner-up at Miss Connecticut’s Outstanding Teen 2012 a few months before Logan won Miss Teen USA.  Sydney and Logan made many appearances together during that year.

Arielle Rosmarino is the new Miss Virginia USA 2014 and Olivia Fletcher is Miss Virginia Teen USA!  Both won the Miss Fredericksburg prelim pageant earlier in the year, making this the second pairing of local titleholders to win their state titles this year (the other being Brittany Guidry and Mary Risener in Louisiana).  

Arielle was first runner-up to Catherine Muldoon in 2012 and is the first winner in four years who had competed in VA before.  Olivia was competing for the first time.  Arielle’s win extends Virginia’s blonde streak to five years!
