Who Will Win the Coveted Title of Miss America?

The 2013 Miss America Pageant will air this Saturday evening at 9:00 p.m. {ET} on ABC.  Laura Kaeppeler, Miss America 2012, will relinquish the title to one of the 53 contestants competing to win the coveted crown.

Before you watch the pageant, you must see the special edition of "20/20," Pageant Confidential:  The Road to Miss America.  It airs right before the pageant on Saturday evening at 8:00 p.m. {ET} on ABC.  

The program will take a look at what it takes to become Miss America and will be anchored by Good Morning America anchor and former Miss America Judge Lara Spencer.  For 6 months, ABC's cameras captured candid moments of the journeys of several of the young women determined to don the coveted crown--as they are transformed from state beauty queens to the polished Miss America contenders seen on stage.

YOU have the opportunity to vote for a finalist at the Miss America competition.  On the Miss America site, there are videos for all of the 53 contestants.  I have chosen some favorites and placed my vote for my #1 favorite.  The voting will close Thursday, January 10th at 11:59 p.m. {PST}.

Here are my top five favorites going into the pageant:

Miss Colorado

Miss South Carolina

Miss Maryland

Miss Idaho

Miss Oklahoma

Aren't they all just beautiful? I was reading today that Miss DC will be having a double mastectomy after the pageant for preventive measures. Her mother, grandmother and great-aunt died of breast cancer. I will be watching too.

Since it is Miss America and they don't necessarily care about the outer beauty as much as they do the complete package, I have to say that I feel like Miss Alaska is a dark horse. I could be wrong, but there is just something about her. Lori, I love Miss DC but I am wondering how the judges will look at roller skating as a talent. I personally can't wait to see her talent.
