The event was hosted by actress Susie Castillo, a former pageant contestant herself. The panel of judges includes celebrity stylist Darius Baptist, MTV personality Evan Starkman and professional BMX rider Nigel Sylvester.
The evening got started quickly, as the field was trimmed from 200 down to 20 semifinalists based on scores from Saturday’s preliminary rounds. Following the swimwear competition, the field was cut in half to 10 for the parade of evening gowns, and then to five for the “final question.”
At the same event, Joanne Nosuchinsky was crowned Miss New York USA 2013 and will represent the state of New York in Miss USA 2013 beauty pageant.
