The quaint little town of Salem will soon welcome yet another stunner, when Miss USA Crystle Stewart drops in this month. Stewart was crowned Miss USA 2008 in ceremonies held last April 11 in Las Vegas.
The 26-year old, who originally hails from Missouri, guest-stars on NBC's long-running Days of Our Lives
on June 20.
Stewart, who finally bagged the title of Miss Texas USA on her fifth try, plays an Alpha Chi Theta adviser to Rachel Melvin
's Chelsea Brady and Kristen Renton's Morgan Hollingsworth. In the coming Days of Our Lives
episode, Stewart catches Chelsea and Morgan's attention while the two are working out at the Salem Health Club.
Morgan tells Chelsea that Stewart is one of their sorority's national chapter advisers and was responsible for putting together the previous year's Breast Cancer Awareness Walkathon at Salem University. The three of them get into a brief conversation about this year's edition of the same walkathon, with Chelsea and Morgan also wishing Stewart the best of luck at the Miss Universe tilt on July 13.
Crystle Stewart has spoken to crowds of over a thousand people, inspiring them with her speech entitled “Waiting to Win,” which chronicles her journey to success. Helping motivate others comes naturally to the new Miss USA. Aside from the nation's representative to the coming Miss Universe pageant, Stewart is also a teacher, and owner of her own company called Inside/Out. She is also a board member on the Trey Rice Education Fund and Houston Community College's VAST program. The course helps provide educational opportunities to individuals with learning disabilities.
As the reigning Miss USA, Stewart will also be a spokesperson for the pageant's official causes. Among them is education and awareness of breast and ovarian cancer, something Stewart herself has had experience with. She once found a lump on her breast, which, fortunately, turned out to be benign.
