'I knew she was going to win. I’m super excited for her to compete for Miss Mississippi – she’s turned me into a pageant boyfriend,' Johnson had said in 2018
On Monday, November 9, America saw the country's 51 most beautiful women parading down the ramp during the Miss USA 2020 contest. Defeating the other 50 participants, Miss Mississippi Asya Branch won the title of Miss USA 2020. Now, the entire nation is wondering who the crowning beauty is dating and what's his name. Well, if you want to know that, you have made the right click.
Miss USA 2019, Cheslie Kryst crowned her successor in a made-for-TV moment with plenty of tears and a Mouawad-designed crown ornamented with diamonds, rubies, blue sapphires and tanzanite.
Asya triumphed viewers' hearts with her thoughtful answer to a question about what must be done to unite our deeply divided nation. "I think this is an issue of trust," the 22-year-old shared. "We've lost trust in the systems that seem to keep our country running, from the media to business to our government. And it's all about restoring that trust and coming together and working together to heal and trust in these systems. If we want to continue to be the greatest nation we're going to have to set a better example," she answered.
The official Twitter handle of Miss USA posted a video of Branch after the win, captioned, “Who are you!?” #missusa"
According to a report, in 2018, Branch won the title of 'Most Beautiful 2018', and her boyfriend Bryan Johnson also attended the event. Freshman business administration major Johnson stated that he and Branch have known each other since middle school and have been dating for two years. At that time Johnson said, "I knew she was going to win. I’m super excited for her to compete for Miss Mississippi – she’s turned me into a pageant boyfriend."
In a 2018 interview with Guideposts, Branch, who is an army kid revealed that her father got arrested when she was just 11 years old. "I learned that the boy who lived with us had robbed a woman. No one was hurt, but there were drugs involved. Daddy had tried to help him undo the crime and paid a heavy price. Life since Daddy’s arrest hadn’t been easy. We missed him so much. After he went to prison, Mama did everything in her power to keep things normal. My older brothers and sisters had grown up and moved out. But my younger sisters, who were only five and two, kept asking why Daddy was gone and when he would come back. Frankly, we didn’t have many details to give them."
Miss Oklahoma USA Mariah Jane Davis, was the second runner up of the competition, while the first runner-up title was taken by Miss Idaho USA Kim Layne.
