Your new Miss America might be beautiful — and bald
very nice little story-I think she's much prettier without the wig
Beauty pageants evoke images of flawless women in amazing shape, perfectly made up and coiffed, right?
Yet one beauty queen vying for the Miss America title in Las Vegas this week has barely any hair on her head.
Kayla Martell, Miss Delaware, has been bald for half of her 22 years — she has alopecia areata, a rare condition that results in unexplained hair loss. But that’s not stopping her from competing for her lifelong dream.
Martell, who competed in her first pageant when she was 13, has always competed while wearing a wig, though she prefers to go bare in her personal life.

New York and Delaware both made it into the Top 15 by the Viewer's Choice. Both have a great message. Hope they can do well although the element of Miss America I dislike is that they have the same preliminary and final night judges so since New York and Delaware didn't impress them in prelims they might not make it past Top 15.
