The 2018 Miss America contestants are gearing up for the final round of the competition, and fans are making their top 10 Miss America 2018 predictions. If you’re wondering who is on the list, keep on reading for facts about the Miss America contest.

On Sunday, contestants of the Miss America pageant of 2018 will have to overcome one more obstacle before advancing to the top 10. Sam Haskell, the CEO of the Miss America Organization, says seven pageant women who make it to the top 10 will have to answer a unique personality question before five of them move on to a second question. “It’s an opportunity to know who they are,” he said. “We decided to add a second question.” Contestants will not be able to prepare for it as it’s not about their platform–so, it will surely be an interesting part of the contest to see!

The official Miss America 2018 date of kick-off was September 6 in New Jersey, beginning with a parade. Sunday’s pageant will mark the 97th competition of its kind. The contestants showed off their state-specific footwear in the annual “Show Us Your Shoes” parade, and are striving to succeed each challenge to surpass the achievements of Savvy Shields, last year’s winner and former Miss Arkansas. The judges’ panel includes American Idol winner and singer Jordin Sparks, model and actress Molly Sims, Editorial Director of People magazine and Entertainment Weekly Jess Cagle, and country musician Thomas Rhett.
