There she is, Miss America and Oklahoma native Lauren Nelson! The reigning pageant queen is back home for the first time since winning the crown. She says she's still adjusting to her new life and her fan's reaction when she greets them.

"You're really her! I've gotten that a lot," Nelson said. "And it's funny grown men will want to come up and take a picture and they'll want to touch the crown and try on the crown. I didn't expect that at all. And it's so neat to see people that they're still excited about it."

Nelson says she will spend the year promoting her platform, which is Internet Safety.
