What’s it worth?
Well, quite a bit actually: winning the event means all kinds of freebies – glam clothes, shoes, evening gowns, and personal care products. But wait, it gets better: “Luxury accommodation in a New York City apartment for the duration of her reign, including living expenses; a year-long salary as Miss USA; [and an assortment of] ‘personal services.’”
These services include everything from fitness memberships to hair salon visits, dermatology and skincare, dental services and nutrition counseling. They are all part of the very attractive winning package that Rima Fakih will now collect. But there is one more that surprised even Kipp: plastic surgery.
