Reigning queen Nana Meriwether will relinquish her crown and the posh New York apartment that comes with it and usher in her successor during the competition Sunday evening at the Planet Hollywood hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip.
Most of the long-haired, hard-bodied women will be quickly sent home.
Contestants will be whittled to 15 after the show’s opening fashion show number based on competitions and interviews during the week before the telecast. The remaining contestants will vie for the crown in three arenas: swimsuit, evening gown and interview question.
