Newly crowned Miss America Cara Mund stopped by the Billboard offices to play the elimination game, “1 Has 2 Go.”
After running through a slew of options, Mund stayed true to her native North Dakota with her picks, keeping Fargo, country music and hot beef sandwiches in the running.
When having to choose her crown, her sash or her signature wave — all of which are crucial to being Miss America — Mund said the wave had to go. “The crown is really recognizable and iconic to the brand,” she explains. “The sash as well. You want people to know you’re Miss America.”
