For those of you not terribly well-versed in pageant culture, Miss USA is a separate entity from Miss America, although it is affiliated with Miss Universe, as the Miss USA winner becomes the United States’ entrant for Miss Universe. Miss USA used to be owned by Donald Trump, but WME and IMG purchased the rights three years ago.

The 23-year-old Summers had previously won Miss Nebraska Teen USA in 2012 and had been working as a certified child life specialist before her Miss USA crowning. She is keen on promoting an agenda of fitness and a healthy relationship with food.
