Miss America Talks Super Bowl, Atlantic City

When you wear the Miss America crown you can expect a lot of attention and responsibility but what you can’t expect is for one day to be just like the next – especially when the Super Bowl is about to kick off.

Nina Davuluri, Miss America 2014, was on hand for the events leading up to Sunday’s Super Bowl 2014. The first Indian American and second Asian American to be chosen as Miss America, Davuluri was there on behalf of Taste of the NFL, an effort to fight hunger.

Speaking to Townsquare Media, Davuluri discussed what it’s like to wear the crown and travel the country as Miss America.

“Every day is so different, every event is so different. Just a lot of networking and connections,” said Davuluri, who also had an opportunity to meet President Barack Obama.

Davuluri was crowned in Atlantic City. The pageant returned to New Jersey after eight years in Las Vegas, and Davuluri said the experience of being in Atlantic City was an experience she’ll never forget.

“To really return home to the history of Miss America, and the warm welcome…was just great,” said Davuluri, who, along with the other contestants, visited the Steele Pier and other AC attractions.

On Saturday night, she will join celebrity chefs and representatives from all of the NFL teams for taste of the NFL, which is being billed as a “Party with a Purpose.”

“It’s going to be a great night of food and wine,” Davuluri said, adding that one of the things sh likes about the Miss America organization is that it allows each contestant to promote a platform focused on service work.
