Miss Maine USA to Bounce Big Pageant for Wedding

Miss Maine USA is going to sit out Donald Trump's Miss USA Pageant to be present at her big sister's wedding.

NBC moved the Miss USA Pageant from its customary slot in April to June. Emily Johnson says the new weekend is the only one in which she had other plans — plans that trump the competition.

Johnson, a Baylor University mark off and talented pianist, is allowed to keep her crown, but she's giving up the title, prizes and appearance.

Mackenzie Davis, executive director of the Miss Maine USA pageant, says she understand Johnson's reasoning, but she says Miss Maine is a serious promise and that she's let down Johnson withdrew from her duties.

The state's participant in the Miss USA Pageant will be the first runner-up, Ashley Marble, of Cumberland.
