Lexie Madden glad to be home following her run for the crown

Posted: Updated:

For Lexie Madden, success sounds something like this.

The Torrington native and 3rd runner up in Miss America was welcomed home in front of countless fans, Like 10 year old Audrey Perry.

"It's really cool cause she's like fifteen miles from where I live," says Perry. 

For Lexie it has truly been a journey.

"It was one that was unforgettable, but I'll tell you what, we hardly slept," says Madden.

And when you're in Vegas who needs sleep?  Throughout the ten day adventure, Lexie was thrown into the madness of pageant fever.

"When we finally got to the finals night it was one of those things we knew it was out of our hands, we couldn't control it, we had already done our best and you just had to go with it."

Some might be disappointed with being so close to the crown and not winning but not Lexie, and if you ask people close to her, they never had a doubt she would be on the final stage.

"Obviously I was a little biased but I just felt like she stood out and I knew she'd do well," says boyfriend and Jacksonville Jaguars star Chris Prosinski. 

Title or not the community of Torrington couldn't be prouder.

"I cannot thank these people enough, I wouldn't be where I am without their help and they've been here from the beginning," says Madden. 

As for what's next for Lexie?  She'll be using her pen for her last semester at the University of Wyoming, but she will continue the message that anything is possible and maybe one day...

"I think about it before I go to bed, like I could be Miss Wyoming.   And that's what I really want to be," says Audrey Perry. 

And for that to happen Audrey might have to brush up on some more unusual talents, like learning how to bark like a dog.
