Even though it was Kira Kazantsev who made history last night by being the third Miss New York in a row to win Miss America, it was Miss Nebraska who was trending all over social media for flashing her—uhm—cornhusker to the world.
Seriously, during last night’s LIVE telecast, Miss Nebraska, Megan Swanson, accidentally flashed the audience with her legs wideeeee open.
And of course, it became the crotch shot seen round the world as screen shots went viral on social media.
And here’s the irony. It happened during the most elegant part of the competition: evening gown. As the non-finalists (including Miss Nebraska) sat in the “loser lounge” on the side of the stage to watch their fellow competitors move on in the competition. Then…it happened, right as host Chris Harrison discussing the evening gown competition, noting, “The judges will be looking at the personal style and flair of each of these contestants,” and BAM—Miss Nebraska had her muffin shop WIIIIIIDE open.
Next time, cross those legs girllllll.
