FANS VOTED FOR WINNER TO COMPETE AT 2016 MISS USA® THIS YEAR’S MISS USA® COMPETITION WILL AIR LIVE FROM THE NEW T-MOBILE ARENA IN LAS VEGAS ON SUNDAY, JUNE 5, 7 PM ET ON FOX
Fans have selected Alexandra Miller, a 26-year-old Oklahoma City woman, as the winner of
#FindingMiss52, the nationwide search for a 52nd contestant to join this year’s MISS USA® competition.
Miller will travel to compete for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of becoming Miss USA 2016 early
Miller is no stranger to competing for the title of Miss USA and has been 1st runner-up twice at the MISS
OKLAHOMA USA® competition. “Those moments challenged me and allowed me to become
comfortable with the woman I am today,” says Miller. “Through #FindingMiss52, I will finally have the
opportunity of competing on the MISS USA® stage and feel the search has provided me with yet another
chance to fulfill my dream,” she adds. Miller previously studied at Wichita State University and has a
bachelor’s degree in marketing with minors in management and Spanish.
Over the course of a month, the #FindingMiss52 announcement and search sparked national attention
and encouraged women across the country to apply. An expert judging panel selected the 10
finalists after interviewing the top contenders to find women who embody The Miss Universe
Organization’s mission to be Confidently Beautiful. Fans were able to vote for their favorite finalist this
past week which ultimately determined the winner who will compete at MISS USA®.
