Chrissy Teigen has something to say about the 2016 Miss Teen USA competition. 

In case you missed it, Miss Texas Teen Karlie Hay took home the top prize at last night's annual pageant held at the The Venetian Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. The 51 ladies competing for the crown were narrowed down to a final five that included Hay's runner-up Miss North Carolina Emily Wakeman, second runner-up Miss South Carolina Marley Stokes, followed by Miss Alabama Erin Snow and Miss Nevada Carissa Morrow. 

So when the Miss Teen USA pageant Twitter account shared a celebratory photo of the top five finishers, Teigen noticed that each competitor shared a few similarities when it came to their looks. 

"Wow how can we choose from such a diverse bunch," the model joked of the potentially eyebrow-raising moment.

Teigen then followed up with another tweet, this time clarifying that her comments heired more on the sight of light-hearted commentary than blatant outrage. 

"It's fiiiiiine," she wrote, adding, "Not their fault. I'm sure they are delightful women. Just funny. I'm not gonna write a think-piece on a damn pageant."

Chrissy wasn't the only one to seemingly criticize the judge's choices. Twitter was buzzing for hours after the pageant concluded with comments surrounding the controversy. 

Ahead of Saturday night's festivities, the Miss Teen USA pageant was praised for organizers announcing the end of the swimsuit competition in exchange for a brand-new clothing competition. The decision came in an effort to show support for feminism and equality.
