Kristy Althaus was the 2012 Runner-up for Miss Colorado Teen USA, though perhaps not anymore. Gawker is now speculating that she has been stripped of that status, after the revelation that she appeared in a piece of short-length, adult cinema for the subtly titled GirlsDoPorn.com.

Here's what you need to know about her and the incipient controversy around her being stripped, for having stripped:


1. Miss Colorado Teen USA is a Feeder Pageant for Trump's Miss Universe

The Miss Teen USA pageant was created in 1983, as the littler sister to the Miss USA pageant, both falling under the umbrella of the Miss Universe Organization, which is jointly owned by Donald Trump and NBC Universal.

As runner-up, Altahus would have, presumably, assumed the title of the best living Colorado teenager of 2012, upon the death or disgrace of Jacqueeline Zuccherino, that year's winner. So the stakes here couldn't be higher.


2. Her Name Has Been Erased From the Miss Teen USA Website

As evidence that she is in fact no longer 2012's official runner-up, Gawker cites the fact that Altahus' name, and the video of her receiving the title, have been removed from the pageant's website:

Gawker asked Craig Heitkamp, co-owner of the production company that runs the pageant, whether those changes were made in response to Althaus' alleged adult film work, but received no comment.


3. Althaus Claims in the Video That It's Her First Adult Film

The video begins with Althaus seated on a bed, facing the camera. Her off-screen interlocutor asks how old she is, and she replies that she's 18.

"And this is definitely your first adult video?" he asks.

"Yes, it is," she says.

The video was posted on January 24 and passed along to Gawker by an anonymous tipster.


4. Porn Might Not Actually Be Against the Pageant's Rules

The only eligibility rules on the Miss Teen USA website are that contestants must have never married or had a child, and must "remain single throughout their reign."

If those eligibility rules are the only official moral standards of the competition, then Althaus should be fine so long as whomever it is she has sex with in that video is NOT her husband.


5. Miss Delaware Teen USA Did a Porn With the Same Website

Melissa King

In 2013, Melissa King, that year's Miss Delaware Teen USA, was forced to resign, after she also appeared on GirlsDoPorn, a site that specializes in "real amateur girls." King spent her teenage years in foster care, and dedicated some of her volunteer efforts as queen to helping children stuck in similar positions. Unfortunately, she also helped some sweaty, lonely men refresh their sacks of scrotal fluid, and is therefore no longer qualified to be the queen of Delaware teenagers.
