First Runner-Up to Become Miss USA

12/15/2006 4:13 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Miss USAWith her dethroning imminent, Tara Conner's days as Miss USA are numbered. There she goes.

One day after pageant boss Donald Trump publicly denied that reigning Miss USA Tara Conner was being dethroned, TMZ has learned that first runner-up, Miss California Tamiko Nash, will be inheriting the crown.

A source tells TMZ that Miss California was contacted with the news by a high-ranking pageant official and told she will take the title once Trump finally makes the official announcement in the coming week.

The Miss USA Organization released a statement on Thursday stating that they are "evaluating" Conner's "behavioral and personal issues" in order to decide how they will go forward with her reign. Conner's questionable behavior allegedly stems from inappropriate behavior at New York nightclubs. The underage beauty queen turns 21 on Monday.

Tamiko Nash is a Los Angeles native and appeared on NBC's "Deal or No Deal" earlier this year.

A rep for Miss USA tells TMZ, "Mr. Trump will make a decision in the upcoming week regarding Tara Conner and her reign. No one has been contacted and no decisions have been made."

What makes everyone assume that Farrah is actually black? Trolls like to play the pretend game.

My two cents    

Farrah- You ignorant little girl. YOU are the reason white people have a problem with the African Americans. YOU are the reason we believe that the African Americans use the race card. Shame on you. YOU are the racist one here. There are so many African Americans out there that would be ashamed of YOU. It is trash like you that ruin it for everyone. As for this Beauty Queen thing, Tara won fair and square. Us "White" people would not have cared if Tamiko would have won. What a beauty SHE is. So, Tara screwed up and Tamiko takes over. That is the end of it. Why do you have to pull the race card here Farrah? You are a hostile little nasty thing!! Grow up piece of trash.

You guys are trying to make a Miss America thing into a racist issue? Now I've seen everything. There is so much more important issue to be upset over regarding the entire Miss America pageant issue. Some of you totally miss the point of what you should be indignant over. Who would want to be subjugated like Miss America? If she does get "demoted" she has successfully dodged a bullet. Feel sorry for the runner up, not happy.

Um, I seem to recall when some "white men" did some sh*t awhile back, and were unfairly found innocent, there was...what was it again....oh yes, A WHOLE BUTTLOAD OF RIOTING!!!

Remember that?

I also remember when the OJ verdict was close to coming, almost every news agency talked about how thousands of blacks had made clear, if OJ was found guilty there would be more rioting.

STFU, because you clearly have no Fn clue what your talking about!

OMG FARRAH! Your officially PSYCHOTIC. You should consider meds......You make my point for me with the O.J. thing.......You are the first one on to throw the whole "N***R" word around on here. Grow up and get some help before you spread your sick thoughts on your kids. You are the reason racism stays alive.

Did y'all ever stop to think that the so called black person named Farrah who is saying racist things about whites is actually white and is just on here getting folks riled up. You guys are so gullible and easy to manipulate. I'd bet my money that most of the racist things said on message boards is by a person of the opposite race posing as a person they are not to get people mad....people bite everytime.

People -- if I'm not mistaken 'Farrah' is a white individual. She typed post [#2] to get people to start up a 'race war' or should I say a blog war. She gets her kick baiting people. And apparently it's working.

Bottom line -- life comes with rules. Tara didn't follow them and now she's out on her can.

Farrah - I really feel sorry for you! I hope you don't have children who are brought up with your same anger. Why can't you see people for who they are and not their color? You're the only racist here...

I think Tara made a mistake and got what she deserved. Tamika is a beautiful young lady and I wish her the best of luck!

Quit blaming every else for you're problems or for hers for that matter. Take responsibility for yourself for a change. It's always someone else's fault in today's society. Oh it's the bartenders or it’s the media or it’s racism. Bullcrap! What’s the matter with blaming the person that actual screwed up??? She was too young and her parents didn’t do their job. It’s not anyone else’s fault.

This is all Trump's fault. He said a couple of years ago that he was tired of the judges not picking the 'most beautiful' of the contestants (they were putting too much weight on poise and grace, I suppose) so he made SURE they chose who he considered to be the hottest. That's fine, he can afford the embarassment! He's paying now for it, clearly.

Farrah - If you want to talk about racism, let's talk about "Miss Black America", The United Negro College Fund" we could go on and on. Let's have a "Miss White USA" and a United White Folks College Fund"
