Miss Missouri USA held the finale night of the 2021 edition a few hours ago at Paradise Cove Theater, River Spirit Casino Resort, Tulsa, Oklahoma where stunning beauties from all over the state competed for the state crown and Joye Forrest was crowned the new queen at the end of the event finale. She succeeds and was crowned by Miss Missouri USA 2020 Megan Renee Kelly.

Joye gave a stellar performance at the state contest. The 25-year-old beauty is a professional dance instructor, rhythmic gymnastics coach, and former Los Angeles Laker girl. Not new to the pageantry, she is also a former 4th runner up of Miss California 2017. When Joye is not pursuing her passion globally, she is studying for her Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine. She is also passionate about her advocacy #SharingJoye through her platform #HitTheStreets.
