Much like California, there are many contestants who have previously competed in other states, including two former Teens. I am totally thrilled to see my Miss Teen USA 2008 favourite Shannon Geraghty back, competing in Miss for the first time (Miss Georgia Teen USA 2008). I've hoped to see her back ever since I was shocked by her non-placement that first Bahamas year. The other former Teen is Miss NH Teen USA 2010 Morgan Lucas, who most recently competed in Massachusetts in 2014.
Another Massachusetts contestant, 2015 third runner-up & 2014 fourth runner-up Cara Lemire is competing in NY this year. Other contestants from different states include Lindsey Begue (Ohio), Laura Arumugam (FL), Adrienne Burfield (MO), A'Storia Hill (NC), Talisha Lee (NV & GA), as well as Kylie Jasenski who competed once in SC.
