Vanderpump Rules star Raquel Leviss is much more than a reality star, and she has a track record to prove it. The Sur hostess came to Los Angeles straight from college at Sonoma State University and has competed in a handful of pageants.
Raquel recently shared that she will be competing in the 2022 Miss California pageant. The reality personality explained on her Instagram account that this may possibly be the last pageant in which she will compete.
“Fingers crossed that it won’t be my very last pageant ever and that I will have the opportunity to represent California on the Miss USA stage,” her April 2020 Instagram caption read. “You may know me as ‘the pageant girl,’ but my one wish is to debunk the stereotype that comes to mind.”
