To kick off my #KrewedeCrown coverage, I wanted to share some short, interesting videos with y’all to learn more about each contestant. Miss USA produced these Road to the Crown videos of each contestant. I’ll share them all with you, in groups of 10, on my blog.

Leading off with our very own Houma girl who grew up with a bayou right behind her house, watch Miss Louisiana, Brittany Guidry, share her Road to the Crown story:

Miss Colorado‘s favorite place in her state is Red Rocks Amphitheater and I must say, I want to do yoga on the rocks! Watch Eleanna Livaditis’ Road to the Crown story:

Light bulb moment! Emily Shah grew up where the light bulb was invented. Meet Miss New Jersey and hear her Road to the Crown story:

Nia Sanchez is a Vegas gal who can break bricks. Yes, you’ll want to hear Miss Nevada's Road to the Crown story:

Miss Massachusetts knows her tools and sounds like she can handle them almost as well as my dad. See how pageants helped Caroline Lunny gain confidence in her Road to the Crown story:
