Miss New York, Nina Davuluri!!! AMURICA, F*CK YEAH!

Without further ado, here are the 5 essential things you need to know about madam USA, who is the first winner of Indian descenet:

1. She wants to be a doctor! Nina is using the $50,000 scholarship to go to med school, just like her father! Well, not that her father won the Miss America competition scholarship. That'd be inneresting though…

2. Her favorite place to travel is Egypt! Sure, it's little turbulent over there right now, but who doesn't like walking like an Egyptian?

3. She bangra, she bangra! Oh how she bangra! Nina performed an AH-mazing Bollywood dance that brought down the house in the talent competition!

4. She likes making Wiener jokes, the political and not the anatomical kind, which made her intro pretty, and topically, HIGHlarious:

“Be careful of the pictures you tweet in my state! Here to win the race I’m Nina Davuluri, Miss New York!”

5. She's making her first official service commitment to Seaside Heights, New Jersey, an area of the Jersey Shore hit hard by Hurricane Sandy.

miss america crowns first indian american winner responds to racist tweets

Last night, Nina Davuluri was crowned Miss America and was the first winner of Indian-American decent!

But while the landmark victory should have been an occasion for celebration, it was instead met with a slew of racist tweets.

Moments after Nina was awarded, tons of angry viewers took to Twitter to air their frustration, and they all had one belief in common: Miss America should have to be from America.

But here's the thing, Nina Davuluri is from America. Born in Syracuse, she is the the second Miss New York to take home the crown in the last two years. However, people seemed too preoccupied on the color of her skin to pay attention to the facts.

Being the class act she is, Miss America responded to the criticism and proved just why she's so deserving of her title:

A girl's gotta eat, right?!?

Miss America Mallory Hagan recently made an appearance on Anderson Live to defend her new curvier physique, and because she admitted that she likes to eat carbs from time to time, she's NOT apologizing for packing on some pounds!!

The bikini-clad bombshell was spotted in Hawaii with Miss Hawaii Skyler Kamaka earlier this week, and while both women obviously gained weight, Mallory was quick to snub everyone and told guest hosts Tamar Braxton and Jane Velez-Mitchell that she is HUMAN.

Miss America eating disorder story

Ugh! Such a sad story, but thankfully it has a happy ending.

2009's Miss America winner Kirsten Haglund is a true inspiration to anyone who has ever suffered from an eating disorder because she not only beat one as a teenager, but went on to use her pageant success as a means of helping others struggling with same issues.

Beauty Queen's Inspiring Weight Loss Story

Filed under: InspirationFitness

Beauty really is on the inside!

Bree Boyce, the recently crowned Miss South Carolina, didn't always look like a beauty queen, but after losing 110 pounds she found out she was destined to be one all along!

The 22-year-old was a heavy girl throughout her entire childhood and reached her heaviest at 17-years-old when she weighed 234 pounds.

After receiving advice from the doctor, she decided to try an Atkins-type diet during which she lost 65 pounds and was even able to win her high school's beauty pageant.

Unfortunately, the diet was just that — a diet — and soon after she had gained it all back. With the help of a nutritionist, a little will power, and a lot of exercise she was finally able to lose it FOR GOOD!

Now she's an absolutely stunning young woman (inside and out) and is on her way to compete in the Miss America competition!

Such an inspiration! This beauty queen's story shows that a healthy lifestyle can be the KEY to becoming the person you've always dreamed of being!

Watch the video above to see Bree's incredible results and learn more about how she did it.
