There are three groups that stand out in my mind, but I'm wondering if anyone knows of others, or has stories of lasting friendships/reunions after a pageant. (Formers, we know you are out there! Any reunion stories to share?)
Miss USA 2018
At least based on social media, this seemed like a group that really enjoyed each other's company. Check Dani Walker's instagram (@DaniWalker) for a recent mini-reunion at NY Fashion week.
Miss Universe 2014
Another group that has already had a few reunions. Some fun videos on YouTube.
Miss Universe 1992
This is going back a ways, but this is the group that makes me really happy. They had a 25th reunion a few years ago in Barcelona. I've shared this video before, but I just love it so much.
Any others? Please share!

[> Subject: I believe the Miss Universe 2014 contestants were good friends, but I also believe they didn't really like their winner Paulina Vega. Paulina is never at the reunions which she was invited to attend. I've never heard any of the girls really talk in a loving way about Paulina. I wonder if Nia Sanchez and Paulina met up and talked at the Miss Universe Pageant in Atlanta? They were both there! Being former room mates and all.
nostalgic and just wondering

[> [> [> [> Subject: Yes it was, and Miss Russia kept saying "I'm rich I'm rich, I don't need this contest". I've always wondered how she got rich. Was it family money, her own money, or something else.
[> [> [> Subject: It's no secret that Paulina was disliked... not at a level of Amelia Vega and her antics, but I doubt Paulina would be attending reunions or marriages of fellow girls. Paulina was one of the most disliked winners in the early part of her reign. Later on, she grew on some people and I really warmed up to her by the end of her reign. At the time of her crowning people were completely fed up with Telemundo. The fact that Latinas haven't now won for five years and counting also shows Paulina's reign from a different angle. Btw, I saw pics but never that video from the 2014 edition reunion. It looks massive. Some of these girls also attended Nia's wedding.
[> [> Subject: I swear every one of Kristen Dalton's 26 bridesmaids were only USA contestants (excluding her sisters, Julia & Kenzie). FYI I'm being sarcastic on the amount of bridemaids LOL. However, it seemed as though Kristen's goal was to have the most beautiful wedding party in history. I'm not saying that these girls build long-lasting, meaningful friendships, but all of them being pageant vets (including her sisters)? Come on now.
[> Subject: The 1992 group warms my heart. I was 10 years old and this was my first Miss Universe Pageant: ever since I have been hooked. I remember being a young boy and I imitated the girls talking, exactly, what they are doing in the videos. My mother took my VHS tape and threw it in the garbage.. ah thats my life lol. Back on track, thanks for posting this.
