MISS USA Recap + What They Got Right (and horribly wrong)

Kára McCullough was crowned Miss USA 2017 during a 3-hour telecast that was largely uneventful and free of scandal (a rarity it seems in today’s pageant scene!) No one fell. No one flubbed her answer. No one crowned the wrong girl or messed up names. But there’s still plenty to talk about – namely what Miss USA is doing right, and wrong, in one of the nation’s most prestigious and well-loved pageant systems.
