Her crown seems to be in jeopardy after the images of her pole dancing have surfaced. Good news for her is that in the images she is fully clothed and the audiences are all women.

This probably means that her crown will stay with her but people will be searching online for her pole dancing photos rather than her swimsuit photos.
