New Miss USA to be crowned in Las Vegas

However, at the 2017 pageant, Miss District of Columbia made a decision to rock her natural curls, and it landed her the crown. When asked about health care reform and feminism, Miss USA victor Kara McCullough stunned audiences by claiming healthcare is a privilege, not a right, and adding that men and women have equal opportunity in the workplace.

"I'm extremely thankful for this opportunity", she said after the event. McCullough went on to explain that health care should only go to those with jobs, and one of the country's goals should be to create more jobs so more people have healthcare. As for McCullough, she used her crowning moment to point directly at the camera and give a shout-out to America, telling viewers that they can do anything they put their minds to and to believe in themselves.

So as a woman scientist in the government, I'd like to transpose the word feminism to equalism. "I don't really want to consider myself - try not to consider myself like this die-hard, you know, like, 'Oh, I don't really care about men.' But one thing I'm going to say, though, is women, we are just as equal as men when it comes to opportunity in the workplace". Five of the contestants vying for the Miss USA title this year were born in other countries and now US citizens.

LAS VEGAS (AP) - The District of Columbia has won back-to-back Miss USA titles. McCullough, a 25-year-old chemist working for. Verg and the women representing Florida, North Dakota, Hawaii and CT described the challenges and opportunities they faced as immigrants.

Verg told The Associated Press days ahead of the competition that she and her parents immigrated from India to the us with only $500 in their pockets when she was 4 years old. "It's not just one face".

Trump co-owned The Miss Universe Organization with NBCUniversal, but the network and the Spanish-language broadcaster Univision quickly cut ties with him, refusing to air the show. The night also included performances by Pitbull and Brett Eldredge.

Julianne Hough and Terrence J hosted the annual pageant in Las Vegas on Sunday, while model Ashley Graham took viewers backstage at the show.

"All you need is mayonnaise", she said.
