Betty Cantrell was born in Warner Robins, Georgia on September 1, 1994. She is the daughter of Tassie Cantrell, a physical therapist, and Mike Cantrell, who is also a physical therapist. She has two siblings: Mikey and Sophia.
Raised in Macon, Georgia, Betty attended Mount de Sales Academy. Upon her high school graduation, Betty attended Wesleyan College and then later transferred to Mercer University. She studied vocal performance.
She announced in September 2016 that she is engaged to boyfriend Spencer Maxwell, who she met on Tinder in 2015. They presently reside in Nashville, Tennessee.
Raised on a ranch in Fort Valley, Georgia in her youth, Betty has the ability to plow and seed fields, handle a shotgun and drive a full-sized John Deere Tractor.
In 2013, Betty began to join the pageantry circuit. In her first three pageants, she placed first runner-up twice and second runner-up once. A year later, Betty would go on to win the Miss Presidential Pathways 2014 title. In that same year, she was the second runner-up in the 2014 Miss Georgia Pageant.
In the summer of 2014, Betty was crowned Miss Warner Robins 2015. This allowed her to compete at the 2015 Miss Georgia Pageant. She was victorious, primarily due to her platform of “Healthy Children, Strong America” and her performance of the famous “Tu? tu? Piccolo iddio” aria from Giacomo Puccini’s “Madama Butterfly.”
Representing Georgia at the Miss America 2016 competition in New Jersey, Betty renewed her “Healthy Children, Strong America” platform and performed the operatic aria. Despite her answer about Tom Brady’s deflategate scandal that seemed to disappoint the judges, Betty was victorious and was crowned Miss America 2016. She became the second Miss Georgia to win the national title.
As part of her win, she served as the official National Goodwill Ambassador for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Moving forward with her platform, Betty worked with Team FNV to encourage children to eat fruits and vegetables. She has partnered alongside Stephen Curry, Colin Kaepernick and Jessica Alba. Over the last year, she has appeared at numerous award shows, including the 2016 Billboard Music Awards, the Country Music Association Awards and the Academy of Country Music Awards.
Moving forward, she is concentrating on a country music career. She recently released her first single called “Soldier On” and is working on her debut album. It was also reported in April 2017 that she is filming a pilot for a new reality television show.
We estimate that Betty Cantrell’s net worth is $200,000 (2016).
So how much is $100,000 really?
$200,000 can buy a small ranch in The Volunteer State. $200,000 can also pay for the production costs of a Miss America pageant show.
