A former U.S. army sergeant who became one of America’s best-loved beauty queens is now set to host her own hunting show.
Theresa Vail became only the second ever army recruit to take part in the Miss America contest last year when she represented Kansas.
But while most competitors go on to get modelling contracts, 23-year-old Miss Vail has signed up to host a show with the US Outdoor Channel.
She’ll be showing off her passion for stalking deer and other mountain animals in a programme she hopes will ’empower women’.
Miss Vail enlisted in the army when she was 17 and is a section leader for the Kansas Army National Guard’s Medical Attachment.
