Prejean first received nationwide attention for an answer she gave during the 2009 Miss USA pageant, in which she stated her belief that marriage should be solely defined as a union between a man and a woman.

She has continued to make public appearances promoting her beliefs despite the revelation that she had breast implants, and the emergence of racy photos and an alleged sex tape.

A public battle with the producers of the Miss California USA pageant ended in her contract being terminated in June 2009, with K12 productions citing "continued breach of contract issues" as the reason for the termination.

Before Boller, Prejean was rumored to be dating Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps. Neither would confirm the relationship.
