Sisters Wearing Crowns: Miss USA 2012

I'm not really into beauty pageants, but I figured that it wouldn't hurt to introduce the beautiful sisters who will be competing in tonight's Miss USA competition (airing at 9:00 pm on NBC).

Miss Georgia
Name:  Jasmine "Jazz" Wilkins
State:  Georgia
Age:  22 
Miss Illinois
Name:  Ashley Hooks
State:  Illinois
Age:  25 
Miss Maryland
 Name:  Nana Meriwether
State:  Maryland
Age:  27  
Miss District of Columbia
Name:  Monique Thompkins
State:  District of Columbia
Age:  23

There are fifty-one states in America, and only five four black women and a few other WoC competing.  Is anyone else not as surprised as I am?

      You're correct! She's of Italian and American Indian descent. I've updated the post. Thanks for the heads up.

  5. At least Leila Lopes will be the longest reigning Miss Universe. I wish Miss Maryland would have won.
