The next morning Sheislane Hayalla claimed that Toledo bought her way to the title and said:

“Money talks in Manaus and I wanted to show the Amazon people's money doesn’t talk here. She didn’t deserve the title.”

Recently, the winner from another pageant, Nia Franklin, the newly crowned Miss America got scrutinized after it got revealed that she is from North Carolina, having moved to New York about 12 months ago.

The pageant rules state that a minimum residency of 6 months is required for a contestant to be able to represent that state, so Nia did not break any rules. The controversy around her win aside she remains proud, this year was the annual pageant’s first swimsuit-less competition and Nia commented:

“I’m a part of history. Miss America started off as a swimsuit competition, but I think it’s important that we’re evolving and I’m so excited to be a part of the new era.”
