Miss USA 2012 Is A Sistah!
If you've watched pageants, you've heard the hosts say their spiel before they announce the winner how important the first runner up position is if the winner of said pageant can't continue in their duties, et cetera.
In the wake of Olivia Culpo winning Miss Universe 2012 on Tuesday, that meant the first runner up gets to ascend to become Miss USA.
In that competition back in June 27 year old Miss Maryland USA Nana Meriwether was the first runner up. She now moves up to become Miss USA 2012 and the sixth African-American woman to wear the Miss USA crown.
She'll handle the Miss USA duties until she crowns her successor in June 2013.
