Miss America 2015: behind the scenes snaps


Glitz, glamour, and the crown!

The 2015 Miss America competition is upon and 53 gorgeous women will be competing for the crown this Sunday at the auditorium at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

While the competition is all about swimwear, smarts, talent, and formal wear, it is the behind-the-scenes action that is really entertaining.

The ladies have been prepping for their big night with pasta-filled dinners, ice cream sundae splurges, lots of napping in between rehearsals, glamor shots, shopping, and some old-fashioned girly fun.

Check out the behind-the-scenes snaps straight from the contestants themselves.

The 2015 Miss America Competition will air on ABC, Sunday, September 14 (8:00 - 11:00 p.m. ET)
