Miss USA Pageant a Fraud

    American Viewposted 5 years ago

    Another Miss USA contestant has come forward saying she heard Miss Florida Karina Brez reveal the list of finalists backstage before the pageant’s Top 15 were even announced.
    “I saw Florida backstage and she was very, very flustered and upset. I thought it might be because she didn’t make the top 15 cut, but at that point she was able to reveal to me at least four of the five names who went on to be the top girls,” the contestant, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told FOXNews.com exclusively. “She couldn’t remember the fifth because she was so upset. Several of the girls then started hearing through the grapevine about a list; a lot of people were upset.”
    Miss Pennsylvania Sheena Monnin first accused the Donald Trump-


    I always felt once Trump took over that there was going to be an issue over the legitimacy of the pageant. Whether it's true or not there will always be a question of corruption when something like Miss USA contest is not an independent program. Since it is owned by someone or a corporation, there's always the opportunity to be creative with the outcome.

    So do you think Trump has rigged the outcome?

    You know what American View?  I'm glad you posed this and I'm happy to reply.  There are very few high profile individuals who disgust and nauseate me like "The Donald," the dick...oops, sorry, I know you like to keep it clean...and relatively speaking, that's clean.
    I'm so happy to be able to use this opportunity to rip on this jerk, I'm giddy with delight.
    He's an obnoxious and pompous blow-hard who thinks that his entire being is sacred and all must bow to him, hear him and obey. He's delusional, phony and arrogant beyond ludicrous....he's certain that $$$$$ is the Almighty Power of the Universe, which also is owned by him....ruled by him and EXISTS for him....I don't care what he owns, what he runs, buys, multiplies or divides....If his hand touches it, it's poison.
    These Beauty Pageants are so damned lame and useless anyway...from start to finish.  I used to just love them when I was about 10 or 12....which is equal to the man's true I.Q.  He's not who he is for his brains....I hope no one is blind enough to believe that!  He's crooked and nasty and ruthless and shrewd....he's lots of nasty things the world can use a whole lot less of.
    Oh yes, you asked about the contest.....It's as fabricated and fixed and phony as he is.  How could it NOT be?  It's owned by The Donald!   
    I owe you A.V......I feel like a MILLION bucks!  Ha! Take THAT Donald.

    Miss Florida denies it and the actual list cannot be presented as evidence so it will only ever be a rumor.

      Psyche,

      I thought it was a rumor or just so publicity deal when the first one came forward then quite. But now a second one has come forward. It does raise an eyebrow now, time will tell if it is true or not

    I think beauty contests and pageants are a waste of time anyway.

      I am not a fan either, but leave it to Trump to screw it up though
