Alabama Native Named Third Runner Up In Miss America

3rd night of Miss America preliminaries set for Friday

In the competition's 97-year history, Mund is the first person to win the title from her home state.

During the competition, Cara was asked a tricky question about USA president Donald Trump withdrawing the United States from the Paris climate deal.

Along with the crown, the new Miss America won a $50,000 (£37000) scholarship, a six-figure salary for the next one year and a contract with Dick Clark Productions. She said she believed leaving the agreement was the wrong decision.

"There is evidence that climate change is existing and we need to be at that table". "Once we reject that, we take ourselves out of the negotiation table", she said referring to the Paris agreement.

In fairness to ABC and the Miss America pageant, another contestant answered a Trump-hating question about Charleston "correctly"... Kinsey said because her father is a former police officer, she would not, but in the District of Columbia, she takes Uber rides, so it would be the driver's choice.

"It's important to have a woman's perspective", Mund, who had an internship in the U.S. Senate, told the AP.




Approaching the water, she waded in with bare feet, then jumped and smiled for the cameras, checking each time to see if her crown was still on her head.

'He is our president and we need to support him, ' Mund said.

As someone else slammed the Miss America hopeful, writing, "She said move the confederate statues to MUSEUMS??"

Mund graduated from Brown University in Rhode Island this spring and competed in the Miss North Dakota pageant in June.

Miss Missouri Jennifer Davis, who was later revealed to be the 1st runner up, was asked: "There are multiple investigations into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation on the election". Another contestant, Miss Texas Margana Wood, absolutely slayed her answer to what could have been an incredibly polarizing question, and the internet is loving it.

Zeng won Friday's swimsuit prelim, and promised she'd be part of the post-Irma cleanup and recovery effort, whether as Miss America or not. Mund took over the title from last year's victor, Miss Arkansas, Savvy Shields.
