It's always fun to recognize past pageant titleholders when they are on the radio/tv and discover their post-pageant accomplishments.

Last week on the national tv news, I noticed a Dr. Jen Caudle giving facts for a medical story. I immediately recalled she had been Miss Iowa twenty years ago in The Miss America Pageant.

Several past Miss America contestants are/have been recent national news correspondents (Roxana Saberi and Trish Regan come to mind).

This year when Fran posted Lauren Molella as New York's Miss America contestant, I recognized her last name and googled to find she's a niece to Lisa Molella, Miss New York 1989.

And although I don't know her post-pageant accomplishments, in about 2003 Christy May (Miss Mississippi 2000) was seen sitting among the Tonight Show's audience when Jay Leno spoke to a few audience members (but not Christy).

The Miss America Scholarship Pageant awards funds to many deserving young women, and will soon celebrate their 100th anniversary!

^^^ On a related note, Miss SC Morgan Nichols, a KKG, just graduated from the school’s Department of Genetics and Biochemistry. A genetics major, her Miss America platform focuses on STEM studies, especially encouraging young people to pursue careers in the areas of math—and especially—science.

If a woman is born in one country but moves to a different country, she can sometimes grow-up to represent her birth country in a beauty contest.

It depends on the individual country's, and the individual pageant's, contest rules.

Miss Universe 1988 was born in Thailand, then moved to the USA, and won Miss Universe as Miss Thailand.

It seems like she's a dual citizen through her Albanian-born mother.

Glad to have a date, finally! Also, the competition will be held at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT, which includes the arena that is home to the WNBA's Connecticut Sun team. I imagine that arena would make a great competition venue.

My parents live about 50 minutes from Mohegan and we've gone to concerts there multiple times. It's not a huge venue but there isn't a bad seat in the house. If only I didn't have a law school final the next day or I would go home to go to it!

Wow, that is awesome! Thank you so much for posting. I used to work with her mom, but haven't kept in touch. I knew Fig did modeling and that sort of thing, so this is really cool. Good for her.
