In the premiere episode of Game of Crowns, fitness model Lori-Ann Marchese is preparing for Mrs. America after she entered Mrs. Connecticut America on a whim and won. With help from Shelley Carbone (Mrs. America 2011) and Vanassa Sebastian (a 2012 Mrs. America semi-finalist), Lori-Ann hopes to get the professional advice she needs to take the crown. Meanwhile, pageant lifer Lynne Diamante helps the reigning Mrs. Rhode Island America, Leha Guilmette, prepare for Mrs. America as well. The competition continues offstage when pageant newcomer Susanna Paliotta wears the same outfit as Vanassa on the way to the pageant. Do New England’s best have what it takes to win the mother of all pageants, Mrs. America?
