Texas is to Miss USA as USA is to Miss Universe. The Lone Star State has won more Miss USA titles than any other – nine (9) in total (1977, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1995, 2001, 2008) with one of them (Chelsi Smith) claiming the Miss Universe crown in Windhoek, Namibia back in ’95.
This year, Texas is pinning its hopes on 20 year-old Alexandria “Ali” Nugent who is currently a Marketing/Entrepreneurship major at Collin College in Frisco. From the day she set foot in Las Vegas, the bubbly lady has steadily become one of the favored ones to figure out well in the June 16 finals. Her beautiful face, good height (5’9″) and engaging personality have helped push her bid to greater heights. Add to that her Latina vibe and you can see a contender who is competing with all her might.
Will Ali make it ten (10) Miss USA crowns for Texas in 2013? I don’t see why not. She certainly has what it takes to represent the country in Miss Universe 2013. And Donald Trump can only give his thumbs up without a doubt. Will all the judges agree? 😉
