Miss Indiana surprised by reaction to her body

CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- The woman representing Indiana in the Miss USA competition says she was surprised by the national attention about her body.

Mekayla Diehl of Bristol, Indiana sparked a discussion on social media when people praised her body for being more "normal" than many other pageant contestants.  Now, news outlets all over the country are calling Diehl for interviews.
   
The 25-year-old said she doesn't even know what "normal" means.

"Today's woman is healthy, and that's what I represent, I guess, and I'm okay with it.  I'm happy that girls are looking to me and thanking me for being average, I suppose," said Diehl.
