Congratulations to Miss California, Alyssa Campanella for winning the 2011 Miss USA pageant!
What do you guys think? Who should win? Personally I thought that Texas was going to win the crown...pretty surprising that she is the 4th runner-up.
After revealing on the show that she was a "huge history geek" with a special interest in the Tudor and Stuart periods, Campanella added that her favorite monarch was Mary, Queen of Scots, who was beheaded in 1587.
She won the crown despite giving a muddled answer when a judge asked her whether marijuana should be legalized in California.
Alyssa - "Well, I understand why that question would be asked, especially with today's economy, but I also understand that medical marijuana is very important to help those who need it medically," she said. "I'm not sure if it should be legalized, if it would really affect, with the drug war. I mean, it's abused today, unfortunately, so that's the only reason why I would kind of be a little bit against it, but medically it's OK."
