On first glance I see Andrea Shen, 2019's 1st Runner up.
If link doesn't work check Miss California USA or Miss California TEEN USA Facebook pages.

MISS - 71

[> [> Subject: To add, call me crazy, but I really think Kataluna could make it far!! I had no idea or could tell she was trans!! And I don’t really support trans people doing this, but “she” is one of the first I had no knowledge of and was already in my top picks!!

[> [> [> [> Subject: She states that on her instagram page. She seems to be well known and popular in this specifc milieu. Unfortunately her other pics do not show that "effortless" beauty and I think she may struggle to make top 20.

[> Subject: I don think Andrea Shen is a bit pretty & based on that, I’m shocked she was 1st RU last year. Her interview must be killer. Jordyn Chessmore competed in Idaho & she’s beautiful! Kellie Hall competed & placed twice in Ohio (looks like she’s in the military, so she’ll probably do well). Starla Smith just competed in Nevada but didn’t place. I think she’s very pretty. Destiny Clark IIRC, is a KY MAO crossover. Natalie Benson sounds & looks really familiar.

[> [> Subject: I'd think so, since Kentucky never posted contestants that I can recall, they once posted contestants post pageant under Connie Clark. We were sometimes lucky to get a contestant list and I think last year someone may have posted from the program book. With Melissa Proctor this year we had pictures up already of the KY contestants 2 weeks ago!

[> Subject: The thing about Andrea is that not only she was 1st runner-up in Cali & New York. She was also a 2nd runner-up at state Teen. I do not recall the state off the top of my head, it was probably Pennsylvania. There must be something about her. I actually can't take my eyes off of her pics, she is so interesting... I felt the same when Deshauna first competed at VA USA and then at US Intl. I simply could not take my eyes off of her pics! Having said that, I agree that so few known girls competing is surprising. I believe girls just figured out that this past decade the state sash stopped counting for much at Miss USA... so winning Oregon, Urah, Montana, etc... still does give you a chance to become the Miss USA. Last year, both Cali's Miss and Teen failed to make the cut. It last happened in 2012 and before that in 2004. By the way, Starla Smith looks great on this pic, but she is one of the more rounder girls... that is why her missing top 15 in this year's Nevada is not surprising.

[> Subject: With Mississippi USA and Hawaii USA crowing their first Black winners in 2020, perhaps 2020 will also be the year that California USA crowns it's first full-blooded Asian winner.


Author:
California is 15% Asian yet California USA has only ever crowned two part Asian winners.

[> [> Subject: I remember Louise Wu on Ellen before the 2010 pageant how she emphasized that fact. She only competed in one season though and made top 10. But I am quite surprised at the lack of winner of Asian descent, there have been a lot of them in Miss Cali MAO.

[> [> [> Subject: AFAIK California MAO has had three full Asian winners: Rita Ng (2000), Crystal Lee (2013), Eileen Kim (2019). I think Veena Goel (2004) and Kristy Cavinder (2009) are part Asian, but can't find anything online to confirm. Arianna Afsar (2010) is half Bangladeshi.

Notice how all of California MAO's Asian winners are in the last 20 years.

[> [> Subject: In the last 30 years, CA USA has crowned three delegates of part Asian heritage: Diane Schock (1/4 Philippine), Raquel Beezley (1/4 Philippine), and Allyshia Gupta (1/4 Indian). This is a state where Asians are 15% of the population, and have a long history there.

[> [> Subject: She was one of the girls that caught my attention. Looks like a great choice. I am almost certain this is her first year competing. Last year's winner also won at her first attempt. And surprisingly she is a (natural looking) blonde. Maybe she is 1/4 Indian?

[> [> [> Subject: https://www.al.com/life/2020/01/auburn-grad-competing-in-miss-california-usa-pageant.html . This article has a photo of Allyshia Gupta w/ her parents. Mom is White, Dad looks mixed Indian and White. I would say you are correct in that Allyshia Gupta is 1/4 Indian.
