Beauty Pagent Winner Smart, Too

So this finally happened:

The Miss USA winner is a also smart.

That’s probably not fair to say of all the other Miss USA contestants or winners but this year, the winner is certainly an exception. The newly crowned, Alyssa Campanella of California (but originally from New Jersey) claims to be a “a huge science geek” and was one of only two contestants who think evolution should be taught in public schools. The only other person to support evolution was Miss Massachusetts.

She was quoted as saying:

“I was taught evolution in high school. I do believe in it. I’m a huge science geek…I like to believe in the big bang theory and, you know, the evolution of humans throughout time.”

It’s good to be a geek.
