Some of my motivation is Miss Idaho is a really sweet person.
2 Things that you should be excited for:
Tony Bowls (dress designer) has donated and designed a personal gown for each contestant this year. SO SO COOL. Not the dress she is wearing above.
Miss Idaho has a pretty good chance of being people's choice because of the national attention from her insulin pump. For me, all that means is she will get a chance to be on TV for us to see. That really never happens for Idaho.
Pageant Planet created the following list, in no particular order, for who will make top ten. After preliminaries, they go back and make a top ten in order list. I DID NOT MAKE THE FOLLOWING LIST. go here http://www.thepageantplanet.com/miss-america-predictions-2015/ to check out their site and follow what their predictions might be.
I don't agree with the list completely and am going to insert my thoughts in another color. My opinions will be based on watching the arrival ceremony that you can watch HERE if you are interested. Each girl introduces herself and its fun to see a small glimpse of how they will do on stage and present themselves verbally in interview.
*the Tony Bowls pictures are not their custom designed gowns, but they are very pretty.

Miss Alabama – Caitlin Brunell
This 22-year-old’s platform is Caitlin’s Closet: One Stop Shopping for Life. Caitlin plans to obtain a Master’s degree in non-profit management and continue a dance education at Broadway Dance Center in NYC.
Personally, I don't love her, but she will do well. I feel she is the exact stereotypical text book pageant winner. Talented, lovely, rehearsed.
Miss Arizona – Alexa Rogers
This 23-year-old’s platform is Empowering Homeless and Impoverished Children. Alexa plans to obtain a Master’s of Business Administration degree in Marketing. She plans to become an executive marketing director of a non-profit company.
Kinda surprised she made their list. I was not impressed when she introduced herself.
Miss Arkansas-Ashton Jo Campbell
This 20-year-old’s platform is Aim Higher: Setting Our Sights on Higher Education. Ashton Jo plans to obtain a dual Master’s degree in Political Science and Business Administration. She plans to work at the corporate level as a Human Resource Director and Lobbyist.

Miss District of Columbia-Teresa Davis

I really like her, and hope she does well. Made a great first impression.
Miss Georgia-Maggie Bridges
She stood out as she spoke for all the wrong reasons, for me. It felt hard to listen to, rehearsed and "let me tie my life into my platform." It makes me grunt when I think of her making top ten. I would be disappointed.
Miss Michigan – KT Maviglia
This 22-year-old’s platform is LISTEN UP: Advocating for Those with Hearing Disabilities. KT plans to obtain a Master’s of Fine Arts degree. This Musical Theatre Dancer plans to perform as a Radio City Rockette and teach at a university Dance Program.
Miss Missouri – Jessica Hartman
This 23-year-old’s platform is Leaders of Tomorrow: Empowering Youth Through 4-H. Jessica plans to obtain a Master’s Degree in Communications. She is a Jazz dancer who wishes to become a national news broadcaster.
She's a real cutie! Hard to miss and not like. Don't think she'll win, but I like her.
Miss New Jersey – Cierra Kaler-Jones
This 21-year-old’s platform is Empowering Today’s Youth Through Arts Education. Cierra plans to obtain a Master’s degree in education policy and a Juris Doctorate to effect change in education curriculum and policy. She is a contemporary dancer who hopes to become an education law and policy advocate with the Department of Education.
Maybe my emotions played into the fact that she got the most applause being from New Jersey... But I had a good feeling listening to her. She was easy for me to like.
Miss Tennessee – Hayley Lewis
This 21-year-old’s platform is Children’s Miracle Network: Real Miracles for Real Kids Like Me. Hayley plans to graduate cum laude with a Master of Business Administration degree with an emphasis in Marketing from Belmont University. She is a vocalist who wishes to serve as the executive director for a non profit organization.
Sometimes it's hard for me not to be critical of girls that pick Children's Miracle Network and place themselves as a miracle child, and it's not totally obvious as to why. I don't think it's very unique, or impressive. I have no other reason to dislike her though.Girls that made an impression for me (Based on first impressions alone) as they introduced themselves. Kansas, because her name is Amanda. jokes guys, jokes. I have no clue how she'll do, she does seem very intelligent though.
