The pageant aired on ABC yesterday live from Atlantic City, New Jersey for the first time in eight years.

Contestants were judged on a personal interview, a talent demonstration, on-stage question, and appearance in swimwear and evening gown. Nina’s talent demonstration was a Bollywood fusion dance. Her on-stage question regarded American TV reporter Julie Chen getting plastic surgery on her eyes. She responded that she was opposed to the surgery and that ‘ones diversity should be celebrated.’
