Gosh darn it … another Miss America beauty pageant and another miss for D.C.’s candidate. In fact, no D.C. beauty has taken up the crown since D.C.’s own Margaret Gorman won the pageant’s very first title back in 1921.
This year, the winner was Indiana’s Katie Stam, but we caught up with D.C.’s representative, Kate Marie Grinold, who did crack the pageant’s top ten.
“D.C. will absolutely win it one day!” she told us. “It’s just a matter of time.”
