Alyssa Campanella, a 21-year-old model from Los Angeles, was crowned Miss USA 2011 on Sunday evening.
The former Miss California, Alyssa Campanella won over the judges after confidently answering tough questions from the show’s hosts Andy Cohen and Giuliana Rancic to be crowned Miss USA 2011.
Alyssa revealed she is “a huge history buff”, and loved the recent series “Game of Thrones” which starred Sean Been.
Campanella revealed, “I’m obsessed with the Tudor and Stuart era. Whenever I go to Barnes and Noble, I’m in the history section. That is where you’ll find me. I’m a huge history buff”.
Alyssa beat out 51 other contestants for the Miss USA title on Sunday night, wowing judges with a green mermaid-style dress in the evening gown part of the competition.
When asked about legalizing marijuana, Alyssa, 21, said she was uncomfortable with the idea but also believed the drug is beneficial used for medical reasons.
Now Alyssa will move on to compete in the ‘Miss Universe Pageant’ in Sao Paolo, Brazil, on September 12, 2011.
