God chooses Miss America, negating all the prayers of all other contestants as well as the free will of the judges. The pageant is all part of God’s Plan.
Here is a photo of Miss America on the night she won the pageant:
If you believe that the photo is a fake, you can see the original on Facebook:

Looking at Teresa Scanlan’s blog we find:
When I found pageantry, I realized that God had prepared me for this competition by creating me to love diversity, and here was the place I could use the talents He had given me.
I was reading 2 Timothy and chose chapter 2, verse 15 as particularly applicable to me. It reads: “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.” As I thought about that verse and how it applied to me, I wrote the following prayer:
Dear God, please help me to be a diligent servant not only today but from here on out. Give me the strength and wisdom to accurately handle your word of truth and the diligence and perseverance necessary to be a worker who is not ashamed. I wish to be a shining light for you, a glowing example of who you are, and a grain of salt in a tasteless world. Whether or not this is achieved through a position, crown, title, or job, please place me exactly where you need me to be an effective ambassador for you. I am clay in your hands, your humble servant, willing to do whatever you wish for me in your perfect plan. I love you so much and thank you for blessing me so tremendously and bestowing such outstanding opportunity on me. My greatest wish is to exemplify your love through my words and actions in order to bring others to you.
Your Loving Daughter, Teresa
That night I won the title of Miss Nebraska. From that, I know that this is exactly where God wants me to be, and He has a plan for each and every day of my life, not only this year, but every year.
Why am I competing in the Miss America competition over the next ten days? Because God has placed me in this position to show His love.
Teresa prayed, and she won that very night. God “has a plan for each and every day of my life, not only this year, but every year.”
It is all part of God’s plan. So the winner of the Miss America Pageant was chosen by God. The free will of the judges was taken away and they were forced to vote in a way pleasing to God to fulfill his plan. All prayers by any other contestants were pointless and were denied, since they were all praying outside the plan. The thousands of other girls who lost at various stages in the local and state pageant systems suffered the same fate. And the millions of ugly girls who were completely excluded from the process, of course, suffered as well.
Apparently Teresa completely missed the verse in 1 Timothy chapter 2 that says:
Also that women should adorn themselves modestly and sensibly in seemly apparel, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly attire but by good deeds, as befits women who profess religion. Let a woman learn in silence with all submissiveness. I permit no woman to teach or to have authority over men; she is to keep silent.
