Savannah Chrisley is no sore loser.
The Chrisley Knows Best star was in the running for the title of Miss Teen USA 2016 last night, but unfortunately fell short of taking home the crown. While Miss Tennesee made it through to the semi-finals, the judges ultimately couldn’t advance her into the top five and Miss Texas Karlie Hay came out on top.
But instead of storming off stage or snapping her crown in half, Savannah reacted to the disappointing loss with the utmost poise and grace (like any Southern belle should, of course!).
Sharing a photo from last night’s festivities of an onstage hug she shared with Miss Nevada Carissa Morrow, Chrisley wrote, “And this is a friendship that will last a lifetime…I may have not taken home the crown but I sure did take home one heck of a friend!!”
Savannah surely felt the love from her famous family, who were all present for the beauty pageant held at The Venetian Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. Savannah’s dad Todd Chrisley and brother Chase Chrisley both shared photos from their trip to cheer on the gorgeous competitor.
Ahead of last night’s broadcast, Savannah wrote on Instagram: “No matter what the outcome is…I have been extremely blessed with great new friendships. I will never stop trying to make a difference in this world.”
Back in October, the reality star made her beauty queen debut when she was crowned Miss Tennessee. In a serious of Instagram posts, the patriarch of the Chrisley bunch gushed over his talented daughter who is becoming a role model for young girls.
“Love you so much little girl, you have so many girls looking up to you, so never make them feel that they made a mistake in trusting you,” Todd wrote. “I am so proud of you for who you are and the young woman you are becoming.”
