The new Miss Mississippi is a woman who plans to be a physician and who graduated from the University of Mississippi with a double major in French and international studies.

It was the fifth Miss Mississippi pageant for Marie Wicks of Ocean Springs, competing as Miss Dixie. She was crowned Saturday night at the Vicksburg Convention Center.

Wicks was third runner-up last year as Miss Pine Belt/Gulf
Coast. She tells The Vicksburg Post it's been hard keeping up her spirit to keep on going. But she says her nervousness went away when she went on stage.

She'll compete in the 2013 Miss America Pageant that begins Jan. 12 in Las Vegas.

    Does anyone actually care about pageants? Oh boy... your pretty. Put some flowers in you arms and a piece of shiny plastic on your head and smile. What a joke!
