A shocking turn of events has forced Miss North Carolina USA 2016- Allie Dunn-to step down, according to pageant officials with RPM Productions, Inc.
Dunn became ill in the days leading up to the Miss USA pageant and her condition hasn't gotten any better.
It's not known what Dunn is suffering from but along with her family, she said it was the right thing to do.
The first runner-up Devin Gant will now assume the roles and responsibilities of the title.
She will also compete in the Miss USA pageant on June 5th.
Allie has been an exemplary titleholder since she was crowned in October and has represented the state of North Carolina with grace and class.
