Miss Indiana Mekayla Diehl didn't win the Miss USA pageant on Sunday night, but she has managed to set herself apart from the competition.

USAToday noticed the praise Diehl received throughout the night and posted a story Monday morning titled "Miss Indiana praised for 'normal' body at Miss USA 2014 show."

Commenters praised Miss Indiana for her "relatively normal" body and showed appreciation for the fact that she isn't a "complete twig."

One person wrote, "Dear #MissIndiana thank you for looking like an average woman."

Diehl didn't make it into the top ten, but she was definitely noticed by viewers Sunday evening.

Tricia Sloma had the opportunity to meet with Diehl a few weeks ago. You can watch those stories by clicking on the attached links.
