Andrea Plummer, Miss New York 2001
Back to Miss America! My Mom and I spent some time at the Miss America Trade Show. Everything pageantry is at the trade show. This gives contestants an opportunity look for gowns, shoes, jewelry, accessories, etc. Some companies present at the trade show were Red Carpet Pageant and Prom Gowns, Regalia, Crown Clips, and Aliz International.

Tonight was the second night of preliminaries and I knew it was going to be a great night. Alyse competed in swimsuit and evening wear (her strongest phases of competition). And she did not disappoint. She looked INCREDIBLE in both competitions. Her body looked amazing in swimsuit. Her confidence was so dominant over the other contestants. And her evening gown...S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G!!! She wore a purple couture gown that looks amazing on her. She worked that gown so well. It was definitely the most unique out of the whole pageant thus far.

Finally, it was time to announce the winners...."and the swimsuit preliminary winner is....Miss New York Alyse Zwick!" I just remember screaming my head off when her name was announced. I am so happy for her! Also, Miss California, Kristy Cavinder, won the preliminary talent award for her Ballet en Pointe to the Slave Maiden Variation from "Le Corsaire". It was a technical and powerful routine. However, it was hard to pick a winner because all the talents tonight were on point.

Finally, I want to wish Alyse a very Happy Birthday!!! What a great birthday present: Swimsuit Preliminary Winner!
