Think it's hard to tell 20 beauty queens apart? How about 20 beauty queens wearing the exact same white bikini?

During tonight's Miss USA 2014 competition taking place in Baton Rouge, La., it was Miss Indiana USA Mekayla Diehl who made the twitterverse burst into a spontaneous round of applause in appreciation of her curvier-than-some bikini bod, which she flaunted to perfection during the swimsuit runway portion of the pageant.

Alas, the 25-year-old stunner did not make it out of the semifinals and into the top 10, which directly followed the bikini parade, but you can bet that she made a world of fans right then and there.

"The fact that Miss Indiana is not a complete twig makes me really happy!" tweeted Kadee McKoin.

"I love how Miss Indiana isn't crazy skinny," added Katie Plowman.

Here's a sample of the compliments directed at Mekayla's healthy, super-fit figure—as well as a sampling of the disappointment when she didn't advance:
