Riding was asked ‘what is more important, beauty or intelligence?’ She said intelligence was more important because “beauty is a momentary thing while intelligence can last a lifetime.” Despain was asked ‘what qualities did she think a young woman should possess to make a good Miss Hinckley.’ “I think they should have integrity and be honest,” Despain said, “because they are not only representing themselves, they are also representing the town of Hinckley.” Brinkerhoff answered her question, ‘If you could change places with a television character who would it be and why?’ “It would have to be Eponine, from Les Miserables,” said Brinkerhoff, because she is very passionate about what she believes in, and is willing to die for whoever and what she loves.” While the judges were adding up scores, former Miss Hinckley Queens were introduced. They talked about their experiences as royalty for Hinckley and how it had impacted their lives. The 2016 Miss Hinckley, Hannah Clark, told spectators
