Michael Phelps was a judge (fresh from his breakout Olympic performance just the summer before), Shandi Finnessy's Final Walk in her gown with the plunging neckline (the day I developed my secret crush on Shandi...shhh!), and a 21 year old beauty from North Carolina, named Chelsea Cooley, capturing the coveted title of Miss USA 2005!
Chelsea is now the current President of StandOut Productions, a comprehensive pageant coaching and training program that produces leadership retreats, seminars, model searches, and individual consultations. Along with her business partner and celebrity fitness trainer, Dr. A.T. Dunn (CEO of StandOut), StandOut Productions has compiled a long list of state and national titleholders at both the Miss USA and Miss Teen USA pageants.
Be sure to watch Chelsea's exclusive video interview and if you want to meet her in person check out the Beauty is Power Seminar in Minneapolis, next week, on January 8th and 9th!
P.S. At 3:36 of the interview...in her best "Minute to Win It" voice...is Miss Teen USA 2005, Allie LaForce. Be sure to stay tuned for her exclusive interview!
