Miss Kansas Theresa Vail, the tattooed Army sergeant. As an American soldier, she believes that with the experiences that she has gone through, she would really become a role model of the women in this nation. Being Miss America requires the same trait as being a soldier. She gives the impression that being Miss America doesn't just involve being pretty, intelligent, and talented in a feminine way, but also with the desire to give and help the nation by sacrificing herself.
