Next, the interview questions. This is the hardest and most intimidating portion of any pageant! With millions of people watching, sometimes, nerves can get to you. And we have seen plenty of competitors become YouTube sensations over their answer! But, the ladies all did very well. Some answers were pretty short and you could tell they were nervous but Miss Florida and Miss Nevada really hit out of the park! 

So, who took home the crown? Fifth runner up was Miss Iowa, fourth runner up was Miss Florida, third runner up was Miss Louisiana and second runner up was Miss Georgia. Miss Nevada and Miss North Dakota were the top two but the adorably cute and sweet Miss Nevada is now Miss USA 2014!
