Miss America 2011 To Be Crowned At Las Vegas Casino Tonight
The Miss America pageant for 2011 has already seen several stages complete, but the drama will build over the next twenty-four hours. On Saturday evening, the new Miss America will be crowned at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
It has been a long journey for many participants on the contest, and some of the contestants already have a notch up on their opponents. Miss Nebraska won the talent portion of the competition with her piano playing. Miss Oklahoma won what is now called the Lifestyle and Fitness stage, formerly the swimsuit competition.
Several other states have their contestants fare well in the early stages. Miss Hawaii, Miss North Carolina, Miss Alabama, and Miss Rhode Island all are in a position to win on Saturday and become the new Miss America for 2011.
Last year, twenty-two year old Miss Virginia, Caressa Cameron won, and is the reigning Miss America. Cameron will turn her crown over to the new winner late this evening, but not before the drams builds and ABC shows highlights from the entire competition.
There are many rumors swirling about how the show will go. One of the rumors has sixty of the past Miss America winners reuniting in Las Vegas for the show. If that happens, it will be a treat for those that have followed the competition for decades.
Being in the casino atmosphere has long been a staple of the Miss America pageant. Up until 2005, the competition took place in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Organizers were upset with declining ratings, and moved the pageant after that year. Las Vegas has ended up being a good place for the competition, but in recent years, even Sin City has had trouble bringing in tourists because of the economy.
