Monrovia's Miss LA County still has a shot at the Miss America title, but Miss USA was crowned Sunday. What gives?

Miss Rhode Island won the Miss USA pageant Sunday, but Monrovia's Miss LA County has yet to compete in the Miss California pageant. What gives?

So while Monrovia's still has a shot at winning Miss California 2012 (and later Miss America 2013), the winner of the Miss California USA pageant competed in Sunday's Miss USA pageant. Got it?

The Miss California 2012 pageant is scheduled for June 26-30 in Fresno.
