The top 16 were completed by the delegates from Alabama, Arkansas, Hawaii, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and Missouri. Miss Missouri, Brenda Smith-Lezama was the winner of the fan vote. Miss Oklahomo was named Miss Photogenic while Miss Nebraska was selected as Miss Congeniality.
Super happy that California won. She was my favorite from the start. The judges agreed with my choices. 4 of my top 5 made the actual top 5.
