Alyssa Campanella Crowned Miss America

And the winner is….Cali! Alyssa Campanella from California was crowned Miss USA on Sunday night in Las Vegas.

It was the 60th Anniversary of the pageant and 21 year old Alyssa didn’t miss a beat.

When asked if marijuana should be legalized, she said that medical marijuana should be legal, but otherwise banned. This got the crowd cheering for some reason.

The natural blonde choose to dye her hair red for the competition hoping it would give her some edge for the competition. Whatever it was—it worked!

If Alyssa can’t fulfill her duties, she will be replaced by Miss Tennessee, Ashley Elizabeth Durham, who was the runner-up.

We’ve gone an entire year without a Miss USA scandal so lets see if Alyssa can keep the trend going.
