Miss Missouri, Candice Crawford, makes the Top 10 but loses to Miss Texas
Surrounded by beauty queens at the Miss USA Pageant on Friday, Gossip Girls’ Chace Crawford only had eyes for one woman: Miss Missouri.
Of course, Miss Missouri is Candice Crawford, Chace’s sister, a 21-year-old blonde beauty who dazzled judges deep into the competition.
But despite a public endorsement from her famous brother, Candice Crawford fell short in her bid to become Miss USA in Las Vegas – that honor went to Miss Texas Crystle Stewart.
While the TV star wasn’t wearing an oversized pin on his lapel like the rest of his family, Crawford’s support was more vocal. When it was announced that his younger sister made it to the Top 10, Crawford threw his arms in the air, stood up and shouted in celebration.
“The family calls themselves Team Crawford,” Candice Crawford told PEOPLE last week while dishing on his brother’s recent split from Carrie Underwood.
Judging from Friday though, Crawford will have no trouble finding women. After sitting in his seat in the lower section of Planet Hollywood Hotel’s theater, lines of women began forming with girls hoping to get photos with the star. He obliged until the show began.
Crawford wasn’t the only celebrity in attendance, however. Judges for the event included Joey Fatone, Heather Mills (who was booed by the crowd upon her introduction) and Project Runway winner Christian Siriano.
Prior to the event, Siriano told PEOPLE: “I’m going at it from a very fashion point of view. Obviously the evening gown and swimsuit portions are very important, so who better to judge that than someone who is actually in fashion?”
