In the 2022 Miss USA contest, Miss Texas was crowned the winner


This year’s Miss USA competition was held in Reno, Nevada. Meet the winner, R’Bonney Gabriel.

The Miss USA crown has been bestowed upon a new queen.

From the three finalists of the beauty pageant at the Grand Sierra Resort, in Reno, Nevada, Miss Texas came away a winner with Miss North Carolina being the runner-up and Miss Nebraska receiving the 3rd place award.

Today, Miss USA of 2021 Elle Smith gracefully passed down her crown after a one-year term. Sharing a snap of her crowning last year, she captioned it: ‘Last year I met new friends and new possibilities. And, of course, a ton of Muppets.’

“The moment that changed my life forever,” Elle wrote on Instagram Oct. 2. “Class of 2021, I hope I made you proud.”

Therefore, the beautifully made garment is in the care of the fashionable woman R’Bonney—a designer with lots to learn about her.


Reportable to ABC News, Ra’Bonney became the first Asian-American woman to earn the title of Miss Texas USA. She was also the first Filipina-American to hold the title.

More than anything, she loves the stage and fire dancing, because it’s both calming and inspiring. And it’s easy to tell she has a very artistic nature too.

The Miss USA 2022 Costume Show was held on Oct. 2 as part of the multi-day Miss USA gathering, and R’Bonney was the winner (in addition to winning the grand prize of being named Miss USA 2022). This speaks to the willingness to design a look that celebrates her Texan heritage in and of itself, even before she takes the stage for the costume competition.

“I was so excited to find out Miss USA had a state costume portion!” she wrote in an Oct. 2 post. “I knew I wanted to be the Texas state flower, a bluebonnet, but with a glamour twist.”

The fashionista even designed her outfit for her Miss USA interview herself, and had a special message sewn into it: My parents are from Beaumont, Texas and the Philippines, respectively. They got married in Manila, Philippines. The same flower design from my mother’s wedding dress was hand painted onto my sleeves and tied in a traditional Maria Clara Filipina collar shape. I am extremely grateful for the opportunities my parents provided me, and I wanted to show my gratitude to them.”

As much as it was a time for celebration, it was also a time for reflection. The Miss USA 2019 winner Cheslie Kryst, who committed suicide at the age of 30, was honored at this year’s pageant.

The company, in the memory of Cheslie, opted to hold the ceremony in the same venue she was crowned Miss USA three years ago.

“In 2019, I had the honor and privilege of judging the Miss USA pageant at the Grand Sierra Resort and Spa in Reno and crowning former Miss USA Cheslie Kryst,” Miss USA Organization President Crystle Stewart told E! News in July. “In honor of Cheslie’s memory, we found it to be a fitting full circle moment that this year, the 2022 Miss USA pageant will be held at the same venue in Reno, Nevada.”

She added, “Not only to honor Cheslie, but also to pay tribute to Reno.”
