Miss Illinois, Megan Ervin, who won Wednesday night's preliminary lifestyle and fitness competition at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas made the top 10 and performed in the talent competition. Her journey ended when she did  not make top 5.

Miss Iowa, Mariah Cary, made the top 5. She is from Burlington, Iowa.
