Congratulations to Miss Maryland. Nana Meriwether, 27, was the first runner-up in Sunday night’s Miss USA pageant.
A 21-year-old auburn-haired California girl won the Miss USA crown on Sunday night and will represent the nation in this year’s Miss Universe pageant in September in Brazil.
Just eight contestants are left in the running at the Miss USA pageant in Las Vegas after the swimsuit
competition, including Miss Maryland contestant Allyn Rose.
