The lawyer recently stopped by to chat exclusively with AOL, where she opened up about some of her favorite things, including her love for Beyoncé, her ultimate celebrity crush and the one thing she can never leave her home without.
In the process of the interview, Kryst also revealed that there's one moment from her victorious Miss USA pageant that she can't get herself to watch back.
"There are times where I can’t change what I performed or what I did or said. Like for example, when I competed in swimsuit at Miss USA, I had a sarong wrapped around my waist and I was supposed to take it off and I could not take it off," she laughed. "For some reason, I just wrapped it too tightly. So I’ve watched that once, but I can’t watch it again."

For months, my alarm rang daily at 4:45am so I could get in a morning workout. In the weeks leading up to my departure for Miss USA, I’d also come home and get in a second workout—30 to 45 minutes on the bike or elliptical. I gave up pasta, fried food, and dessert (with the occasional sweet treat on the weekends). I hated every second of my workout and nutrition regimen. But I’m thrilled that I felt confident and proud to strut my hard work across the Miss USA stage this week. One more day ‘til finals!!
