Did you ever wish you could be a fly on the wall of a contestant’s interview? As pageant viewers, your first interaction with the titleholders is typically during their on-stage presentation after their private session with a panel of judges.

The unique contestant videos posted online varied greatly as each contestant utilized their 90 seconds in ways that allowed them to flex their comedic muscles, showcase their talent, rally supporters behind their platforms or explain why they are best qualified to fill Teresa Scanlan’s shoes.
So who were our favorites? Keep reading because we’re excited to share our picks with you!
Rookie of the Year: Miss District of Columbia, Ashley Boalch
