At the 2016 Miss USA contest on Sunday, Ashley Graham was working backstage where she had the opportunity to hang out with a bunch of people like her: super hot women.

When it came time for the archaic bikini portion of the event, Graham was on hand to throw out some subtle criticism before chatting with the models.

"Pageants now, I'm hoping, are going to start putting curvy, plus-size women in front of the panel."

Then Graham got up on stage, ripped off her dress, and revealed her hot bikini bod. Well, no, that didn't happen but it should've, if only to make the pageant more interesting. And it could've provided the young ladies with a great lesson as Graham gets paid to slay in bikinis.

Graham, though, opted to remain covered up for the event, only revealing her cleavage on the red carpet.

While some may think Graham was the winner of the night, the Miss USA crown went to this lady.

26-year-old Deshauna Barber is a D.C.-based IT analyst and Army officer, according to the Washington Post, which makes this queen even cooler.
