America's Next Top Model Cycle 12 alum Natalie Pack just beat out a slew of girls (including the competition’s first openly lesbian contestant) to be crowned Miss California 2012!

You may remember Natalie as the first contestant in ANTM history to skip getting a drastic new look during makeovers, because Tyra & Co. deemed her to be modelly-looking enough on her own! She ultimately finished in sixth place on her cycle, but is on her way to Miss USA 2012, which more than makes up for her ANTM flop.

After she's done with the pageant circuit, Natalie has aspirations of attending medical school. Tyra would be proud.

Pot ledom, Natalie! (Are we using it correctly? It's synonymous with Mazel Tov, right?)
