On Saturday, September 22, a new queen of Atlantic City was crowned at the annual Miss’d America Pageant at Borgata. Adriana Trenta took home the coveted prize of Miss’d America, beating out some of the country’s hottest drag acts to take the crown.
The Miss’d America Pageant started in 1994 at a local Atlantic City club and was created as a spoof of the world-famous Miss America Pageant to raise funds for a local charity. It took place annually on the night after that famous beauty pageant, the joke being that the drag performers ‘missed’ getting into the real pageant at Boardwalk Hall. It ended in 2005 and was absent from Atlantic City for nearly five years, before making its triumphant return on January 31, 2010 and has grown larger and more spectacular every year since.
Hosted by Carson Kressley, the 2018 show featured lavish sets and incredible numbers from some of Broadway’s classic and latest shows. Check out the gallery below, featuring Miss’d America Adriana Trenta!
