Miss USA 2017 Is Crowned — But Not Without Some Controversy First!

miss usa is crowned

Say hello to our new Miss USA!

On Sunday evening, the 2017 Miss USA title was handed out and ANOTHER beauty queen from Washington, D.C. snagged the coveted title. Yup, Miss District of Columbia Kara McCullough was announced the winner during the live competition in Las Vegas!

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).

Worst Beauty Pageant Answers Of All Time!

It's hard to look away.

While most people tune into pageants (such as Sunday's Miss USA 2017 showing) for the glamorous dresses and unique talents, we enjoy watching them for the tough, on the spot questions the contestants are always asked. Why?? Because that's where some of the best viral moments come from.

We mean, the April 25 "best date" joke from Miss Congeniality was inspired from something!! While Miss Rhode Island's answer from the beloved comedy isn't real, there have been plenty of times where beauty queens have uttered complete nonsense on stage.

Be sure to ch-ch-check out the worst beauty pageant answers of all time for yourself (below)!

Biggest Beauty Pageant Scandals

Miss USA 2017 is THIS Sunday and while pageant queens may be constantly smiling on the outside, it doesn't mean they're immune to scandal! Perhaps we'll have some this weekend??

When Steve Harvey accidentally called the wrong winner at the Miss Universe pageant back in 2015, it seemed like the beauty queen world had never dealt with such a screwup before. However, in reality, this industry has seen its fair share of drama over the years.

Oh, you think we're kidding?? LOLz!

tara conner supports trump

Donald Trump has found a celebrity ally!

And no, we're not talking about Scott Baio. Instead, former Miss USA Tara Conner is speaking out in favor of her former boss and has even credited him as the one who saved her life.

In case you forgot, back in 2006, Miz Conner made headlines after she was caught underage drinking, using cocaine, and kissing Miss Teen USA Katie Blair at a NYC nightclub. As the beauty queen put it herself, she became known nationwide as "Mess USA." Shockingly, Drumpf decided to let Tara keep her title and publicly gave the blonde beauty a second chance — on the condition she enter rehab.

And it seems now, Conner can pay back Trump's generosity by being a vocal supporter of his presidency. In a written piece for USA Today, the 31-year-old noted:

Another day, another stunning celebrity forced to speak out on body shaming.

Siera Bearchell may have been crowned Miss Universe Canada, but that doesn't mean she's immune to receiving negative comments about her weight online.

Last week, the 23-year-old Saskatchewan law student spoke out about "self-worth and self-love" in an inspiring Instagram post after being told she was "gaining weight."

Noting that she was "not as lean as I was when I was 16, 20, or even last year," Bearchell said she gained a newfound confidence as soon as she stopped trying to fit into the body type society wanted her to have.

In a new interview with the BBC, the beauty queen — who is currently in the Philippines competing for the title of Miss Universe 2016 — explained she wanted other women to know it's okay to be comfortable with their bodies.

Bearchell explained she "caved in" to the pressures of pageant competing last year, enduring a strict workout regimen and a diet of
