Why do we all perk up when Miss Teen USAs get in trouble? Tori Vance is the latest casualty of the party bandwagon, although she might wish that she had been on a different kind of wagon last week. Miss Arizona was cited for driving while intoxicated in Los Angeles.
She is 18-years old which is three years younger than the legal drinking age. Now I know what you are thinking. Everyone drank when they were underage. Well that isn’t exactly true but we can cede the point more generally to get it out of the way. A lot of people drink when they are under the legal age, and Tori Vance might be no exception although she remains innocent until proven guilty.
Unfortunately she was just barely over the .08 legal limit in California for blood alcohol according to police reports. That is probably only two drinks and is entirely unfair. I’m sure she can hold her liquor like the best of them, and certainly other Miss USA girls have drank far, far more. But she was arrested for DUI anyway in a story you can read here. There is no word if she is disputing the charge.
Tori Vance is not one of those party girls who hoots it up all the time and gets in trouble. My view is maybe she messed up just this once, if she is guilty at all, and it is barely a mess up at all. Her social networking sites are quite the tame stuff that would make any daddy proud without the sort of wild partying and girl-on-girl crazy action we are accustomed to in these stories. She likes kids and dogs and her friends just like any average young woman, and more conservatively than most as the only people she hugs tightly are guys. There are hardly even any bikini photos. Darn!
In the video below which shows Tori winning the Miss Arizona 2009 contest, you can see that she is a beautiful girl with beautiful brunette hair and flush cheeks. Her rosy face that time, however, is undoubtedly due to the stressful moment and overwhelming joy of being crowed the winner and knowing she would go on to compete in the Miss USA pageant. By the way you can see her pageant photos over here. She was just a baby of 16 years old when she won!
As for her biography, Tori Vance hails from Ahwatukee, Arizona, which was quite a long city name to get on the pageant sash that went across her breasts and body. The town is a suburb of Phoenix about 30 miles to the southeast. She graduated from Mountain Pointe High School there but she called Phoenix her home later probably just to make spelling easier. After winning the Miss Arizona contest, she headed to Los Angeles where she currently lives, and which explains why she got pulled over in California. The only terrible thing she had done since coming to the state was (gasp!) turn into a Dodger fan.
After moving to Los Angeles, Tori announced that she would compete in the next Miss California USA pageant in January 2013. We don’t think this alleged incident will slow her down, but she might think about getting a ride to the next competition. You can find a Facebook page for her new quest here while the actual Tori Vance’s Facebook page is here. That one can be hard to find because there are tons of imposters out there as usual for women who recently made news.
She also has her own website which is decidedly minimalist so far. In consists of a homepage with a single photo. You can see it here and note like we did that she looks great in black and white (not the police car mind you).
Tori also has a modeling profile here which reveals her vital statistics. She is 5’7″ tall with gorgeous brown hair and awesome green eyes. We all know that brown hair and green eyes rock, and her case is no exception. She looks absolutely fabulous. Unfortunately her measurements are not listed, so anyone who knows her might please do us the favor of measuring Tori when she is not looking.
Update: Tori has officially been charged with DUI 4 weeks after her arrest. What took them so long?
