ATLANTIC CITY, NJ --  And the new Miss America 2017 is Miss Arkansas, Savvy Shields.

Savvy Shields went home with the leading prize on the September 11 pageant in Atlantic City. In addition to a pretty shiny piece of headwear, Shields won a $50,000 scholarship, a six-figure salary and appearances with Dick Clark productions during her yearlong dynasty.

But the real question is: who is Savvy Shields?

For starters, she's a heck of a dancer and has dreams of one day dancing for Beyonce.  Shields is also an art major, sorority girl and an advocate for healthy eating! During her reign, she will get to promote her healthy lifestyle with her “Eat Better, Live Better platform"

Now Shields wasn't the only one crowned a winner.  Mark Cuban was awarded creepiest facial expressions during the pageant. Yea, Mr. Shark Tank himself was caught licking his lips as Miss Arkansas strutted her stuff in a black bikini. He was also caught looking a little bored during Miss New York’s talent performance.

But not to be outdone, Cuban tweeted out this:

Talk about a good sport!
