Top 5 Finalist
With stiff competition standing beside her, the one to bet was certainly Miss Rhode Island, Anea Garcia. Garcia was adopted by her grandmother because her mother had been raped at age 13, and “a child can’t raise a child.” Garcia’s grandmother has done an excellent job raising Garcia who is currently a double major at Roger Williams University in Bristol, Rhode Island on a full tuition grant. Everyone had high hopes for flawless Latina until things took a sharp turn.
Miss Rhode Island, Anea Garcia, received this question from former Miss USA Tara Conner.
Recently, comedian Jerry Seinfeld spoke out against political correctness in our culture. Do you think political correctness is hurting or helping this country and why?
That’s a very good question. I think it’s a balance of both. We definitely need… I’m sorry will you please repeat the question once more?
Conner repeated the question and in Garcia’s second attempt when like this:
“I think that it’s a balance of both” she repeated, after a long pause. “We need the people to remind us, especially politicians, to remind us what to do and when to do wrong.”
Unfortunately Garica’s 30 seconds were up.
Miss Nevada, Brittany McGowan, was the next contestant to stumble out of the race (literally).
Her question was from Crystle Stewart, Miss USA in 2008.
What would you do to improve race relations in the U.S.? Please be specific.
“What I would do to improve race relations in the U.S. is get more races grouped together and be able to be with each other in a … in a non … let’s see … I apologize,” she says before finishing her answer. “I think what we need to do is bring — we need to be more accepting of each other and we need to bring people together, that’s what I think we need to do.”
Miss Nevada attempted salvage her answer during the second round of questions. McGowan shoe-horned a double whammy when asked which American woman should be on the $10 bill:
“I would love to see Rosa Parks on the $10 bill. That would be fantastic. As an African-American woman, I feel connected to her, I owe to her, I’m here because of her. It would be fantastic,” says McGowan. “I think it would be amazing to see Rosa Parks on the $10 bill. And I’d like to say that race relationships should be helped, it starts at the home. So I think if we just continue to bring respectfulness from home, we’ll solve it.”
But Miss Nevada doesn’t go home empty handed but returns to her lavishing career as actress and a model. Some of her work included numerous national commercial and print campaigns for major companies such as Sketchers and LA Fitness.
If you’re wondering what happen to Miss Maryland and Miss Texas :
Miss Maryland USA Mame Adjei
Q: “The United States has agreed to formally reopen its embassy in Cuba. Do you think this change will be a positive one for both countries?”
A: “I think that it will be a positive trade. I think that it is an awesome thing to open our doors to all countries, all nations and to mend our relations with everyone. We should not be holding on to old grudges. We should be moving forward and accepting each other and loving one another and moving forward so that we can create better relations, better society, better govern — govern our countries better that way.”
Miss Texas USA Ylianna Guerra
Q: “Last year, CEOs in the United States made around 300 times as much as the average worker salary. Should the government impose boundaries on salaries of executives?”
A: “That’s a very good question. You know, I think that if you work hard enough, you can attain anything. This is the land of opportunity and CEOs — I believe that they work hard enough for their money, so I believe that they should be able to attain whatever it is they are working for.”
