Miss Georgia Betty Won Miss America 2016
Miss Georgia, Betty Cantrell, has been crowned Miss America 2016 despite a bizarre answer to an equally bizarre on-stage question. During the question round, judge and country singer Brett Eldredge asked Cantrell if she thought New England Patriot’s quarterback, Tom Brady, cheated.
Miss Georgia, replied as follow:
“If there was question there, then yes, I think he cheated,” she said. “If there was any question to be had I think that he definitely cheated, and that he should’ve been suspended for that.”
According to The Miss America Organization’s website, the 21-year-old’s platform is “Healthy Georgia. Strong America.” She will receive $50,000 in scholarship money. Miss Georgia Betty Won Miss America 2016
At Sunday’s 2016 Miss America pageant it was Miss Georgia Betty Cantrell who walked away with the coveted crown. But that’s only part of the event.
