Transcript for Miss America Goes Behind the Scenes at This Year's Pageant
Sara, save us. We got something else. All eyes are on Atlantic City for the miss America competition and reigning miss America Betty Cantrell is taking us behind the scenes as she gets ready to hand off her crown. I'm from the state where girls rule. Reporter: The miss America pageant is here once more. Your new miss America is miss Georgia. Betty Cantrell. Reporter: Bringing with it sash, smiles and selfies galore. Got it. The prep starts months before the girls even come here. Reporter: And only on "Gma" the reigning miss America Betty Cantrell spilling the beans on what it takes to win the crown. Definitely making sure that they're getting enough sleep especially the singers to make sure they're not talking a lot so they don't get sick. I did get a sinus infection last year at miss America and I'm a singer. Reporter: That talent portion worth a whopping 35% of the contestant's overall score. Kind of the time where they get to show what they can do and also what differentiates us from all the other pageants. Reporter: The legendary pageant celebrating its 96th year ready to crown a new lucky lady. Watch out for that final question. There's always that chance you'll get a question that you don't know anything about and that happened to me. Did Tom Brady cheat? That's a really good question. I'm not sure. I think I'd have to be there to see the ball and feel it and make sure if it was deflated or not deflated. You just have to do the best you can. ? There she is miss America." You can watch all the miss America glitz and glamour right here on ABC tomorrow night at 9:00.
