Miss Mississippi 2013 - Tough Competition

The public will get their first look at the 35 contestants competing for Miss Mississippi Monday night at the annual parade.

Six members of the Top Ten from 2012 will be back to compete this year. Chassidy Sumler, Caroline Conerly, Jasmine Murray, Jessica Terrill, Breanne Ponder and Chelsea Rick.

Rick, Miss Amory Railroad Festival, and Terrill, Miss Southern Heartland, who was second runner up to Miss Mississippi last year, are competing for the fifth time. Jessica Terrill was second runner up, Jasmine Murray, Miss Mississippi State was first runner up.

"It was just breathtaking honestly, being up there and competing, being first runner up to Marie, oh my goodness, she is just beautiful and talented, and everything that Miss Mississippi is all about. And so I was truly honored to get first runner up my first year", Murray told us.

"I think that if you watch me as a competitor one thing I hope everyone can see is that I have more fun and I am convinced than anyone up there or just as much fun at least", said Terrill.

The first night of preliminary competition begins Wednesday night at the Vicksburg Convention Center.
