On Sunday, September 11 2016, Savvy Shields was crowned Miss America 2017. The 21-year-old Fayetteville, Arkansas native beat out 51 other contestants to emerge victorious, and she will now succeed Betty Cantrell as the new Miss America. Not to brag, but I predicted she would take home the title last week. I guess I’m pretty much the Miss Cleo of the Miss America racket.
Savvy brought down the house with her jazz dance routine, and she delivered a very well-thought-out response to a question about Hillary Clinton. After Savvy’s year as Miss America is up, she will return to the University of Arkansas to study art. She really is the total package.
