Las Vegas oddsmakers didn’t expect much from aspiring sports reporter MacKenzie Green during last night’s Miss USA contest. Sportsbook.com, for instance, pegged the reigning Miss D.C.’s chances at an astounding 5,000 to 1, reportedly making her “the biggest long shot in the history of beauty pageants.”

Green politely declined to discuss her chances with City Desk last week. But, according to her Twitter feed, she believed she was still capable of a stunning upset.

Met Mr. Trump this morning…now all I can do is put it in God’s hands…but I’m naming it and claiming it, I will make Top 15

She didn’t. But, hey, it’s an honor just to compete, right?
