Katherine Haik of Louisiana named as Miss Teen USA 2015
In a magnificent finale held at Nasau, Bahamas, Katherine Haik from Louisiana was crowned as Miss Teen USA 2015 . She stands 5′ 10″ tall and is just into her 15. She is the youngest Miss Teen USA winner till date. Katherine battled out 14 other contestants who made it to the Top 15 after competing in Swimsuit and Evening Gown at preliminary, along with personal interview. She was also a very hot favourite of our judges panel who kept her at 2nd position in our hotpicks. Katherine became an instant favourite to win the crown when she recited the names of all the Presidents of America in a song form. It was a cute thing to see and something very unique. The finale was hosted by former Miss USA Erin Brady and Nick Teplitz.
Katherine Haik was followed by Melanie Mitchell, California, as 1st runner-up and Jane Axhoj, North Carolina, as 2nd runner-up. Cora King of West Virginia was awarded as Miss Congeniality and Christina Stratton of Missouri was awarded Miss Photogenic.The biggest shock of the evening was the girl from Ohio failing to place in Top 15.
Katherine was crowned by the outgoing queen K Lee Graham who took her final walk at Miss Teen USA 2014 in a breathtakingly stunning white flowy gown. Reigning Miss USA, Olivia Jordan and Miss Universe, Paulina Vega were also present on stage to honour the new Miss Teen USA winner with sash and flower bouquet. Katherine shall now spend her one year as Miss Teen USA 2015 with Miss Universe and Miss USA in New York.
