Tami Farrell has taken over Carrie Prejean's responsibilities as Miss California.

The former first runner up was pressed into service after Prejean was fired by Donald Trump and pageant officials on Wednesday. got the first online interview with Farrell, and asked her about the tumultuous past 24 hours.

FOX: Congratulations. Bit of a strange way of becoming Miss California?

Tami Farrell: Yes, it was definitely a crazy phone call to receive, but I’m excited to represent the state. I only found out yesterday! It was definitely some interesting news to receive but I’m just so excited.

FOX: Are you disappointed now that you won’t be able to compete again for Miss California and have the opportunity to go on to compete for Miss USA?

Tami Farrell: I think I had a bit of a blessing. When I was 18 years old, I was Miss Teen USA, so I had a taste of being a national titleholder and being in the competition. But being able to do things here within the state is great. I am pursuing acting and a screenwriter so being able to focus on projects within the state is a real blessing to me.
