K. Lee Graham was crowned Miss Teen USA 2014 after competing with other 50 contestants on Saturday, August 2. The teen beauty pageant was held at Atlantis Resorts in the Bahamas.
"I can't even talk right now. This is literally a dream come true," said the 17-year-old Chapin citizen shortly after being crowned, "Thank you for supporting me. We did it!"
At the beginning of the pageant, 15 of 51 contestants were chosen to the semi-finals. The 15 contestants then competed in bikini catwalk and only five of them were chosen to the final session. Those five contestants were Miss California, South Carolina, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Mississippi.
In final Q&A session, the five contestants definitely gave some memorable answers. In the end, Miss South Carolina became the winner while Miss Mississipi won the runner-up place. Miss Teen USA 2013, Cassidy Wolf from California, was the person in charge to crown Lee.
