Finals for the Miss Pennsylvania USA & Teen USA pageants will be held tomorrow (Sunday) at 4pm. The show will be webcast at http://www.pageantvision.com. Unfortunately I will be unable to watch the webcast and post live updates as I am working but I will do the best I can to bring you results when I can.
There are 39Miss contestants this year, slightly higher than last year and similar to 2016 but well down on 2017's 60! Teen numbers - 29 - are also similar to recent years. It's hard to believe there were only 11 contestants in 2016.
Four-time Florida finalist Kailyn Perez has moved to Pennsylvania and may be hoping some of the luck of LauRen Merola - another perennial FL contestant who won Miss PA USA on her first try and placed fourth runner-up at Miss USA 2008 - rubs off on her. 2015 Georgia Teen USA runner-up Jordan Meachum is also competing in Pennsylvania for the first time.
Other returning semi-finalists are Monet Tiberii, Chantelle Heggenstaller, Alissa Alexander, Julia Chiango and Kirstin Pollock (in NY).
In the Teen pageant 2018 third runner-up Julia Meckley and fourth runner-up Erica Knopp are the only returning finalists this year. Anvi Viji-Anand is the sole returning semi-finalist.
