She might be the first Miss USA winner to appear on the The David Letterman late night show. Here she was a part of the famous Top 10 section where she hilariously told the top 10 mistakes to be avoided during the Miss USA pageant.

She wore Pink, teal sashes to promote cancer awareness. She also wore a Green Sash to celebrate St.Patrick’s Day.

We wish the couple a blessed & joyful life ahead.
