It was announced by the Miss America Organization that there will be a slight change in this year’s format during the finale on September 10.  The contestants in the final stages at the Miss America Competition will have to answer a second round of questioning on the way to winning the crown.

Sam Haskell, executive chairman and CEO of the Miss America Organization, said the second round of onstage interviews is designed to bring out more about the contestants. “It’s an opportunity to know who they are,” he said. “So we decided to add a second question. They can’t prepare for it; it’s not about their platform.”

Starting with this year’s nationally televised finale on Sunday, seven contestants from the top 10 will be asked a personality question. From those seven, five will advance and will be asked a second question on current events, societal issues or the like.

The addition of a second round of questioning comes as the onstage interview has played a significant role in helping to select the last two Miss Americas.
