Registered nurse, personal trainer, and “Mr. California” representative Isaiah Smith was just featured on KTLA. #Powerjournalist Markos Papadatos has the scoop.

He revealed that he grew up in Northern California. Smith will be representing his home state in the 2024 Mister USA competition.

“For the USA, it’s a newer competition for men,” he noted. “There is talent, formal, and there is a swimsuit category. The winner will be announced on August 11, 2024,” Smith said.

Smith went on to describe this Mister USA opportunity as “a super amazing one.” He opened up about how his family inspires him. “They inspire me every day,” he admitted. “From when I was little, I wanted to make my parents proud and my siblings; I was the oldest of four. I was always a caregiver by nature, which is why I wanted to become a nurse and a personal trainer. I am best at caring for others; that came naturally to me. It gives me an extra push.”

Smith underscored the importance of self-care and how he tackles that on a daily basis with his wife (and two kids). He shared that they both make working out a priority, even when they travel. “We met as co-workers in a hospital and the first time we hung out was on a gym date,” he said.

Smith even showed them his special talent, which was a “backflip” in their KTLA studio.

On being spotlighted in KTLA, Smith told this journalist, “It was an awesome experience being able to speak about the Mister USA competition, talk about my wife and kids, and hit a backflip on live TV.”

“I am very excited for what is to come,” Smith exclaimed.

Mister USA is an American beauty pageant, which is held annually, and the winner goes on to represent the United States in the Mister Universe competition. It is a celebration of culture, diversity, beauty, intelligence and empowerment.

They believe in the power of young leaders to make a difference in the world. It is not solely about outer beauty; it recognizes the inner beauty and intelligence of their contestants. The winner will go on to rep the United States in the Mister Universe competition.
