Are you questioning Miss USA’s geek cred? My first question is, “Why?”
Campanella answers a question posed to her about her affinity for collecting history books. In the midst of her response, the newly crowned Miss USA happens to say, “I watch Game of Thrones, I watched Camelot…I know those are fantasy but I also watch the Tudors, so I’m a huge history geek.”
When I heard that, my first thought was, “this chick is awesome!” Do you know what some other people thought? “SHE’S A LIAR.” Seriously. Their first thought was to assume Campanella was lying about liking the HBO series (which has huge viewership) and simply pandering to the audience and judges.
