Miss Rhode Island is out of the hospital after collapsing onstage during the Miss America pageant's first night of preliminary competition.

Ivy DePew apparently fainted during an awards presentation Tuesday night in Atlantic City.

Pageant officials have not said what was wrong. But a host told the audience that DePew "got a little overheated."

The second round of preliminary competition will take place Wednesday night.

In Tuesday night's preliminary round, Miss Florida Victoria Cowen won the swimsuit competition, while Miss Ohio Mackenzie Bart won the talent competition for a ventriloquism routine.
