Kristy Althaus is a contentious pageant queen best known for allegedly losing her place in the Miss Colorado Teen USA pageant due to a porn scandal.
Naturally, beauty pageants exude a sense of perfection, but it is no longer news that even beauty queens have been involved in scandals. Pageant history has been filled with fascinating drama, ranging from controversial comments to indecent photos/videos, lawsuits, drug use, secret pregnancies, and lies.
While some pageant queens and winners escape such scandals unscathed, others have had their crowns or titles stripped. Kristy Althaus’ case, however, may not be the most scandalous yet.
Kristy Althaus Biography
Kristy Althaus, who was born on May 2, 1994, in Aurora, Colorado, was a promising college student when she competed in the Miss Colorado Teen USA pageant in 2012. She finished second to that year’s winner, Jacqueline Zuccherino, implying that she could step in if the winner was unable to fulfill her duties.
Why was she stripped of the title of Miss Colorado Teen USA?
After an adult video of Kristy surfaced online more than a year later, it appeared that the judges reversed their decision and stripped the beauty queen of her title. The porn video shows Althaus sitting on a bed, facing the camera, and when a male voice behind the camera asks how old the model is, she says she’s 18. The man also asks if this was her first adult video, to which she responds in the affirmative.
Though it was never officially confirmed that Kristy Althaus was stripped of her title as a result of the infamous video, the pageant’s promoters, Future Productions, removed all references to Althaus after evidence of the video surfaced. They not only removed her name from the 2012 Official Results website, but they also removed a YouTube video of the moment the results were announced during the pageant.
It has yet to be confirmed that the viral video featured Kristy Althaus, but the beauty queen deleted her Twitter account shortly after the controversy erupted. Furthermore, neither Kristy nor the Miss Teen Colorado USA pageant organizers have issued a public statement regarding the adult film porno scandal.
There have been claims that Althaus did nothing wrong in the eyes of the law, but another school of thought believes she is guilty as charged based on moral considerations. However, the only official moral standards stated for competition eligibility on the Miss Teen USA pageant website are that contestants must have never married or had a child, and must remain single throughout their reign. This essentially ended the argument that the young beauty queen committed any wrongs with her infamous video.
Kristy Althaus, on the other hand, appeared to have made the decision to pursue a career in the adult entertainment industry a few months later. She surprised porn fans by making a comeback after another video featuring a woman who bears a striking resemblance to her surfaced online on Girls Do Porn – a site specializing in amateur girls. In the second video, the woman kisses the camera but quickly says, ‘I just wanted to come back.’ According to reports, the video was being used to promote sales on another website.
Pageant queens have had to deal with the pressure of not jeopardizing their reputation, and Kristy Althaus is one of many who has gone too far. She has now become more popular as a beauty queen turned pornstar, which goes against the natural expectations that people have for beauty queens who are supposed to be role models for young people. While she appears to be enjoying her new job, it does not change our opinion of beauty pageants, which will continue to be one of those competitions we despise!
Kristy Althaus has been linked to Derek Wolfe, an American professional football player who played for the Denver Broncos, a successful National Football League team. Kristy, a college student in Colorado at the time, was in a long-distance relationship with Derek while he was playing for the Denver Broncos.
Derek, who thought the porn video scandal was a one-time occurrence, stood by Kristy and proudly declared his love and affection for her on social media following the scandal. However, the couple allegedly ended their relationship after Derek discovered Kristy’s intention to pursue a career in pornography. Derek then deleted all of his social media accounts.
