Miss United States organization held the national finale of the 2021 edition on 7th October 2021 where Samantha Anderson was crowned Miss United States 2021 by her predecessor Tiffany Ann Rea. The stunning beauty is the daughter of two international pilots and is currently working towards her private pilot’s license.



For the newly crowned queen Samantha, flying has been in her bloodline since the beginning. As Miss United States, she will be an advocate for Women in Aviation as she encourages young women to pursue a career in male-dominated fields.

The finale night also saw a true moment of sisterhood as Samantha was being crowned the new queen. It was truly an extraordinary moment as Samantha faced a huge panic when the crown would not stay on her head and Miss United States 2021 Miss Congeniality did not hesitate to run over and take bobby pins out of her own hair to help place them in the crown. It was truly one of the sweetest acts of sisterhood pageantry has seen.



On her crowning, Samantha took to her official social media to reveal her emotions in a post captioned, “I don’t even know what to say…GUYS I’M MISS UNITED STATES!! The last 3 days have been an absolute whirlwind and I wouldn’t have it any other way! Thank you @glambyashwee for my hair and makeup @bodybycraig for training me and @iamchloereece for helping me walk & talk. Thanks @edawn5 for coming out to support me! I have so many thank-you’s to do, but for now, I have to first recognize @tabithaivan for being so selfless and helping me out during my crowning moment. You are truly an exceptional human. More to come as I have a moment to breathe, but holy cow! Glory to God! Let’s do this!”



Not new to the pageant world, seven of Samantha's ten years have been spent with the United States National Pageants and it has instilled in her a love for her community and serving others. Samantha is a proud graduate of Virginia Tech class of 2019. After graduating, she attended Loyola University Baltimore and earned her Master's in Education and Montessori Studies and currently serves as a substitute teacher.
