And the winner is!? Β Miss Bayleigh Dayton! Yes, the name is right, Steve Harvey didn’t announce this one. The mark in history is correct, Miss Bayleigh Dayton is the first African-American woman to win the title. She is 23, gorgeous, and she’s accomplishing her goals, right and left!

Shockingly, Missouri is making marks; for the last two years, last year was the first openly lesbian contestant Erin O’Flaherty. Read more on her story here. Now as for Miss Bayleigh, this doll is from Kansas City, Missouri and Lee Summit to be exact! May she continue to make moves, graciously.

Honesty I wish I could have competed in something like that, but I don’t know if it was too late after the quarter sleeve tattoo? Who knows? But I can say I’m genuinely happy for Miss Bayliegh Dayton.

Crowns Up!
