Verg, 20, of Edison, is studying marketing and Spanish at Rutgers University, and competed against 50 other women in the pageant. She was born in India and moved to the United States when she was 4. Verg is a certified personal trainer who says she’s dedicated to health and “female empowerment through education.”

Back in October, she became the second Indian-American Miss New Jersey USA, emerged as first runner-up to Miss USA, Kara McCullough.

Some say that given their answers to questions during the competition final, Jersey should have won.

 

Folks have taken to twitter to express their frustration with Miss NJ’s alleged “robbery” of the crown:

Well any who
Thank you for your service to our great state Miss NJ!
