Miss USA 2012 Olivia Culpo

The 20-year-old Miss Rhode Island Olivia Culpo was crowned the Miss USA 2012 title at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas on June 3. Culpo, the Boston University student beat 51 contestants to win the title. Andy Cohen and Giuliana Rancic were the anchors 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.” She received mixed reaction from the audience initially but soon got positive response from them.

Culpo appeared in a purple evening gown when the winner’s crown was placed on her head. She was seen shedding tears at that special moment.
