Miss America 2013
After beating out other beauties in the categories of talent, evening wear, interview and swimsuit, a new Miss America has been crowned. Mallory Hagan, 23, of Brooklyn, New York took the title after ‘wowing’ judges with her fit figure in a black bikini before donning an elegant white ball gown. A highlight of Hagan’s performance was her interview portin where she answered a question about whether armed guards belong in grade schools; “we should not fight violence with violence” said the beauty. Hagan also tap danced her way into the judge’s hearts to James Brown’s “Get Up Off That Thing” for her talent portion.
Hagan was awarded a $50,000 scholarship and her platform is stopping child abuse.
