Miss Rhode Island Olivia Culpo was crowned the Miss USA 2012 title at a dazzling ceremony at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas on Sunday, June 3. The 20-year-old cellist beat 51 contestants to win the crown. Andy Cohen and Giuliana Rancic were the hosts of the show.
“I do think that would be fair, but I can understand that people would be a little apprehensive to take that road,” Culpo answered when she was asked if it was fair that a transgender woman would win the Miss USA title over a natural born woman, reported the Reuters. She went on further saying “so many people out there who have a need to change for a happier life. I do accept that because I believe it is a free country.”
Culpo wore a purple evening gown when the winner’s crown was placed on her head. She appeared in teary eyes at that special moment.
