Miss Mermaid USA 2019

WHAT IS MISS MERMAID?

Miss Mermaid International and National competitions are a unique series of beauty pageants bringing mermaiding, modeling and ocean activism together on a worldwide scale. Mermaid Queens from around the world compete in skills such as underwater modeling, freediving, costume design and traditional pageantry, while supporting causes to help Save The Oceans.

 

Miss Mermaid USA is the exclusive official platform for sending our winning queens to represent the USA at Miss Mermaid International, which is hosted annually on the Red Sea of Egypt. This year's winners of Miss Mermaid USA 2019 are Adrienne Wilson and Lenisa Ann Careaga. Our queens just returned from Miss Mermaid International where they competed alongside mermaids representing over two dozen countries from around the world!

How to be a mermaid queen

What does it take to be Miss Mermaid USA?

UNDERWATER GRACE
Underwater Posing Competition

At Miss Mermaid International, snorkeling and scuba diving judges watch as each mermaid delivers their best show in a one-breath freedive performance with the beautiful Red Sea coral reefs as a backdrop. Beyond underwater modeling, this performance in open water embodies the true magic of mermaiding. The most graceful mermaid wins the "Most Photogenic Underwater" sash (a title held by our own Miss Mermaid USA 2016, Lauren Chu, photo above.)

CREATIVITY
Costume Design

Mermaids love getting crafty! At Miss Mermaid International each queen poses for a photoshoot featuring her self-made mermaid top and accessories. She can even decorate her fabric Magictail Pro mermaid tail (a gift from official sponsor Magictails) and she does her own mermaid hair and makeup for this (on land) shoot. The mermaid with the most unique ensemble will receive a sash for "Most Creative."

SWIM FITNESS
Long Distance Swim Competition

At Miss Mermaid International one of the most difficult and objective competitions is the Long Distance Swim, where mermaids swim their maximum distance in one breath in their mermaid tail. This horizontal "dive" allows each mermaid to push her abilities while avoiding the risks involved in vertical freediving. In a 30 meter pool some mermaids can even swim 2 laps! The mermaid that swims the farthest will win the "Best in Water" sash.

Miss Mermaid International also includes the traditional pageant categories. Some of the sashes that may be awarded include "Best National Costume," "Best Catwalk," and "Best Behavior." There will also be a sash awarded for each continent!
