Miz McCullough beat out the other top three finalists, including first runner-up Miss New Jersey (Chhavi Verg) and second runner-up Miss Minnesota (Meridith Gould). And we can't say we're surprised to hear that Kara won the Miss USA crown as she's a nuclear scientist at the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission. No, really!

Not to mention, this is the second year in a row that a contestant from D.C. has walked away victorious at the celebrated pageant.

Still, McCullough's crowning doesn't come without some controversy. The scientist was dragged online for her answers regarding health care and feminism during the competition. When asked if healthcare is a right or a privilege, Kara responded that healthcare should only go to citizens with jobs — but then added that it's the country's job to make more employment opportunities so that most people can have healthcare. Huh.

See the best reactions to her answer (below).
