The Miss America pageant may still be quite a ways off — January 2012, and counting down the days — but we may already have a front runner. And by “may” we mean “definitely.”
Recently crowned Miss South Carolina Bree Boyce appeared on Tuesday’s (July 12) episode of “Good Morning America” to talk about her recent victory and her stunning 110-pound weight loss.
Speaking with host Robin Roberts, the 22-year-old says that it was just the classic combo of exercise and a good diet that helped her drop the weight after her doctor warned her about her health.
Boyce also came to the defense of First Lady Michelle Obama, who’s apparently been getting flack for eating at the new DC outpost of burger joint Shake Shack — despite her advocacy for healthy eating.
“She may be First Lady, and she may be promoting ‘Let’s Move,’ but we’re all human,” says Boyce, laughing. “She probably worked it off right after she ate it.”
