Kára McCullough wins Miss USA (COURTESY OF MISS USA)

At the conclusion of tonight's live pageant extravaganza, Kára McCullough, Miss District of Columbia was crowned as the new Miss USA, beating out 50 other state titleholders and taking over the crown from 2016's champ Deshauna Barber — who was also Miss D.C., go figure.

Widely seen as a ~strong contender~ for a crown throughout the proceedings, McCullough nonetheless navigated the swimsuit and evening gown rounds with ease. McCullough also spoke eloquently about healthcare in the Q&A round (arguably the most charged question posed to the top 5), though took her moment in the "final word" round to label herself as an "equalist" rather than a feminist outright.


McCullough works as a nuclear scientist, nbd, and works at the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission. As her Miss USA bio makes clear, she is also the founder of a community outreach program designed to foster greater appreciation for the sciences in young children. She also apparently has "a penchant for cooking specialty Italian food."
