Tonight during the pageant, Miss Georgia said what this means is to love your flaws, while Miss Hawaii spoke about beauty that will last a lifetime and loving yourself. As for Miss District of Columbia, she said that it’s important to understand beauty is not always about your appearance.
During the top 5 questioning, Miss California, who many thought was a shoe-in to win, had a very difficult time with her question. She was silent in the beginning and couldn’t manage to put her words together. Sadly, she appeared very upset and did not make it into the top 3 finalists.
