‘Cause is a state-title holder. Get involvedYou’re welcome, everyone! A second—or, in some cases, third or fourth—job for most of the 51 contestants, it requires a schedule so jam-packed with meetings, appearances and Zoom calls that when asked how they’re actually preparing to take the stage at Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun Resort for the 100th anniversary competition on Dec. 16, Maura, Miss California Jazmin and Miss D.C. Andolyn all agreed that they kinda fit it in when and if they can.
Maura explains, “My approach is prepare for Miss America by being as good as possible title-holder.” “Even though you are Miss America, you will be Miss America. You won’t be competing. Most people won’t see you in a red-carpet gown 99 percent of your time.
At this point they’re far more likely to catch Andolyn Uber-ing across town for an event after spending all afternoon working on her doctoral dissertation, Maura sweating her way through pre-dawn PT on base and Jazmin fueling up on protein shakes to power through a full day of work as a bilingual substitute teacher and Disneyland cast member.
