Miss Boca Raton USA &
Miss Boca Raton Teen USA
November 6, 2016
This week’s first stop on The Road to State celebrated the sixteenth anniversary of the Miss Boca Raton USA & Teen USA Pageants. Held at the Boca Raton Marriott at Boca Center as the seven Miss USA and Miss Teen USA contestants took the stage in pursuit of the titles. Hosted by Miss Florida Teen USA 2014 Natalie Fiallo and Miss Delray Beach USA 2017 Narissa Adside with Miss Hollywood Beach USA 2018 Jessica Zelete as they greeted the large and enthusiastic crowd who came to southern Palm Beach County on a glorious winter afternoon in South Florida.
The show started with our Boca Raton USA & Teen USA delegates taking the state for a high energy opening. Then it was time for self introductions which allowed the audience and judges could to gain insight before the three competitions began. First up was the onstage Interview Question then that was followed by swimsuits/athletic wear as the delegates hit the stage in one or two piece suits of their own choosing. Then it was the audience’s favorite as fashion was on display in the Evening Gown competition.
After the judging was over it was time for the Miss Boca Raton Teen USA Results:
The new Miss Boca Raton Teen USA 2018 is Lexi Hidalgo
Then the Miss Boca Raton USA Delegates were asked to move center stage for the results:
The first runner up was Meghan Gilmore
The new Miss Boca Raton USA 2018 is Carla Erskine
Congratulations to Ms. Erskine and Ms. Hidalgo as each wins a ticket to our state pageant championships! A big hand also goes to our outstanding group of volunteers who made this a memorable evening. The Road to Hollywood continues next week as we head to Sanford to open up the year in the region with our Miss Central Florida USA/Teen USA Pageant at the historic Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center. Results right here next Monday as we add more members to the Class of 2018 here in the Sunshine State.
