With all the controversy surrounding Miss California's insensitive remarks, something very important is being overlooked.
And that is that the beautiful Miss North Carolina, Kristen Dalton, won. She is the new Miss USA, and we are proud to have helped her get that title! She earned it!
Sunday night marked the second time a beauty from NC has won the title. The last time was back in 2005.
Dalton won both the swimsuit and evening gown competitions. Or did Miss California forget that?
A bit more about Kristen!
The 22-year-old aspiring motivational speaker is currently in college, majoring in Psychology and Spanish at East Carolina University. An Honors student. Beauty and brains! And she's a "financially independent" student as she's worked different jobs while in college.
As for her desires, Miss USA continues to aspire to be a motivational speaker and hopes to run her own charity one day.
How could you get any better?
Definitely the best contestant won!
