At one of the year’s most exciting live events, a star-studded panel of judges chose Miss Hoag Hospital USA, Natalie Pack as MISS CALIFORNIA USA® 2012 at the sold out McCallum Theatre in Palm Desert. With over 400 contestants competing for the prestigious title of MISS CALIFORNIA USA and MISS CALIFORNIA TEEN USA 2012, the pageant had the most participants for any state in the 62 year history of Donald Trump’s MISS USA® and MISS UNIVERSE® organization.
Pack, a 22 year-old California native from Rancho Palos Verdes made her first appearance in the California pageant system.

The MISS CALIFORNIA USA and MISS CALIFORNIA TEEN USA pageants are judged by well-known celebrities and respected industry professionals on three main categories: interview, swimsuit and evening gown. All contestants are also reviewed on vital judging criteria including: character, poise, confidence and personality. Pack, the new MISS CALIFORNIA USA 2012 winner will go on to compete in the MISS USA pageant, the precursor to the MISS UNIVERSE pageant.
