The Miss America Arrival Ceremony was held today live on the world famous Atlantic City Boardwalk.

The 2016 Miss America contestants made their debut at Kennedy Plaza. All 52 contestants were introduced to the crowd during the parade of states.

I had the chance to to meet and chat with a few of the contestants including Miss Delaware, Brook Mitchell, Miss Pennsylvania, Ashley Schmider and of course the former Miss Hammonton and current Miss New Jersey, Lindsey Giannini.

All of these amazing young women have worked extremely hard to get to the next level and proudly represent their respective states. Of course, I am partial to Miss New Jersey, Lindsey Giannini on becoming Miss America 2016!

It was also fun to talk to the Miss America 2015 Kira Kazantsev even though I butchered her last name live on the air. I also reminded and thanked Miss America for guest starring on a classic Lite Rock Impossible Trivia You Tube Advantage video with our Lite Rock morning guy Eddie Davis.. You can see the video below.

Good Luck to all of the contestants participating in the 2016 Miss America competition live from Boardwalk Hall and live on ABC TV on Sunday night September 13th starting at 9 PM.
