Miss USA comes to town!



Reno-Tahoe earned many new fans this past May when the MISS USA Competition came to town. The event took place at the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino’s Grand Theatre on May 2nd and aired live on FOX. Bliss Life Magazine had the honor of covering the competition and meeting many of the contestants. A common topic of conversation was how much these women, many of whom are well traveled, were enjoying Reno-Tahoe and had no idea how amazing it is. What better way to grow the local economy than having an influential spokeswoman from each of the 50 states experiencing Reno first hand and taking that experience back home with them!

Vanessa and Nick Lachey hosted the event and Lu Sierra served as competition insider. Grammy® award winning singer, songwriter and producer T-Pain performed and the event was a huge success! Brains, beauty, ambition, talent and a whole lot of impressive personalities graced the stage at the Grand Sierra. Speaking of which, the Grand Theater stage was completely transformed into a crystal blue wonderland that was fit for the newly crowned Miss USA Cheslie Kryst from North Carolina. Cheslie is a full time complex litigation attorney who is licensed to practice law in two states. She earned both her law degree and MBA from Wake Forest University and graduated cum laude with a bachelor’s degree from the Honors College at the University of South Carolina. The 28-year-old is a former Division I athlete, having competed in the heptathlon, long jump and triple jump on South Carolina’s track and field team. The Charlotte native runs a fashion blog, "White Collar Glam," that focuses on work wear fashion for women and she is an active volunteer for Dress for Success.

Bliss Life Magazine had the opportunity to meet the newly crowned Miss USA Cheslie Kryst at the press conference after her win, as well as interview her in our very own private SKYPE interview a few days later (look for interview clips on and @BlissLifemag social media channels). Cheslie is smart, humble, beautiful, and such an inspiration for women everywhere! Congratulations Cheslie! We look forward to following your journey as Miss USA!
