Miss USA 2023: Meet the contestants

Miss USA 2023, the highly anticipated 72nd Miss USA pageant will take place on September 29 at the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno, Nevada.

The upcoming national competition will be the first edition since the Thailand-based JKN Global Group headed by Anne Jakrajutatip became the owner of the Miss Universe Organization.

It will also mark the first year since Layla Rose took over as the national director, president, and CEO for both the Miss USA and Miss Teen USA pageants.

A total of 51 contestants from across the United States of America will be vying for the national title and the opportunity to represent the country at Miss Universe 2023 in El Salvador.

This year's winner will succeed the reigning Miss USA, Morgan Romano, who took over the title when R'Bonney Gabriel was crowned as Miss Universe 2022 last January.

Don't forget to vote for your favorites to win the People's Choice. To vote, just head over to the Miss USA official website.
