22 May 2018 | Irina Silva

Miss USA 2018 was a grand affair with the 15 semi-finalists competing on the national stage at Hirsch Memorial Coliseum in Shreveport, Louisiana. Sarah Rose Summers from Nebraska was crowned Miss USA 2018 by the outgoing Miss USA 2017 Kara McCullough.

Hosted by Nick and Vanessa Lachey, the annual event also featured performances from country singer Lee Brice and Lachey’s own 98 Degrees.

As the Top 5 finalists were announced on the stage, it was the time for the most awaited round of the evening – the question and answer round. The questions were asked by the fellow contestants and not by the jury.  So without further ado, here is the question and answer round of the top 5 finalists of Miss USA 2018.

Miss Nevada USA 2018 – Carolina Urrea (asked by Miss Nebraska USA)

Q. Tell me about the time when you felt unworthy and how you overcame it?

A. The time that I felt unworthy was when my family and I became homeless and experienced this hardship a couple of years ago. I felt like I could never accomplish anything in life but through these circumstances, it brought my family and I stronger together and I really learnt how to appreciate life and never take anything for granted. So through this situation I found myself worthy and I am grateful for that experience because that made me who I am today.

Q. Sexual Assault is an issue at universities across United States. What do you believe can be done to better protect women on college campuses?

A. I believe in college campuses you have different groups and activities where women can self den=fend themselves, and that would be the opportunity to make it better.

Q. 1 in 4 children in the United States live in single parent household. How has that affected our generation views on marriage and family?

A. I am so grateful to have grown up in a home with two parents, so I cant personally relate to this. However, I do work in children’s hospitals that has a certified child specialist who works between the children and families and the medical team and I have seen single mothers at the bedside working remotely on their computers to stay by their children and support them. And it just shows that no matter be it a boy or a girl, that they can do that.


Miss North Carolina 2018 - Caelynn Miller-Keyes (asked by Miss South Dakota USA 2018)

Q. the Boy scouts recently decided to accept girls into their organization. Do you feel that it is a positive change and do you think there is value in single gender organizations?

A. I think that this is a great change. I think we are in a time in America, not just America but the whole world where gender equality is a huge thing. I believe in 10-20 years from now, women and men are going to be completely equals and we are taking those steps right now with the boy scouts.


Miss South Dakota 2018 Madison Nipe (asked by Miss Nevada USA 2018)

Q. During the last Presidential elections, more than 1/3rd of the women neglected to exercise their right to vote. Why do you think that is?

A. You know I am not sure why that is, I think that women are perfectly capable of expressing how they feel and they should be able to vote and they should express that at the polls and I think that we need to get out there as women and show that we are perfectly capable of doing that.
