Miss USA Cheslie Kryst made quite the impression after she was announced as a semi-finalist at the Miss Universe pageant being held at the Tyler Perry Studios, Atlanta, Georgia on Sunday.

The gorgeous Kryst from North Carolina took the stage in a glittery pink jumpsuit and casually mentioned seeing her mom in the crowd cheering for her. A former TV correspondent, she had a word of advice for Steve Harvey, the host for the evening. Harvey asked Kryst if she had any advice for him for the night and she replied, "If you're nervous, take a deep breath and slow down...if you've got notes, make sure you look at the notes beforehand and most importantly I usually pin my hair back, so it's out of my face" before brushing her hair back with her hands and adding, "but I don't think you'll have that problem."

Harvey played along like a sport, although, he does not seem too happy with it -- his eerie laughter could be proof of that. He went on to tell her, "You ain't got no mustache so we even!" as Kryst couldn't help but laugh out hard. All in all, maybe no offense taken. 

While Harvey may not have really found it funny up, but she's got Twitter all cracked up.

"Another shady response to Steve Harvey from miss USA haha you never learned, asking for advice again," said one user while another added, "Miss USA is funny, witty, gorgeous AND she’s a Lawyer?? Wow". Outside of pageantry, Kryst is a licensed attorney and has served as a correspondent for Extra since October 2019. Another fan said, "Miss USA is going to be our biggest competition because that girl is really smart." 

Earlier in the evening, Steve Harvey also made fun of himself for his mishap from last year where he went on to announce the wrong winner.
