Is the state of Idaho really known for Bigfoot sightings? During the 2013 Miss America competition, the contestants were given a moment to highlight their home state, and Miss Idaho Marissa Wickland decided to let the nation know that Idaho is definitely a Bigfoot state (Yes, that's the best she can do). Last time we checked the BFRO database, Idaho had about 62 reported Bigfoot sightings, which is pretty average. California currently leads the nation with over 400 reports.
Also during the competition, Miss Oregon, Gabrielle Neilan, also gave a huge shout-out to Bigfoot. Instead of saying Bigfoot she says "Sasquatch", which is correct either way. Oregon is not far behind California in Bigfoot sightings, with over 221 reported sightings according to the BFRO.
Watch the video below. Miss Idaho gives her shout-out to Bigfoot at 3:00 and Miss Oregon starts at 7:00:
