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."

I am so glad Tara is losing her crown. I wanted Tamiko to win all the way and was pissed when Tara won. I'm Filipinio. So I don't why whenever two people are black and white and when there is a controversy that it was racist. Dumb, ignorant people. That means you, Farrah. You're a disgrace to your own people.

#40 Candace, you're damn argument is so freakin' old. And, your point is...do you know why these organizations were formed? If not, you might be able to answer your own questions if you do some research on the subject instead of making it a black vs. white thing.

You know this wasn't even supposed to be about race, but here we go. There is obviously some hostility between whites/blacks and they surely won't be solved here.

I gotta go. Too much negativity for me.

All you people going way out of your way to bash Farrah are a bunch of dumb sh*ts. I'm white, and I've personally heard at least 2 employers talk about how they would not hire someone becuase that person was black. THEY WERE RACIST MOTHERF***ERS----THAT'S WHY THEY SAID THAT! And I think that type of thing does go on in our society alot and it should be raged against, talked about, whatever.So all you people that want to ignore things and think that just cause things are easy for your white ass, they are easy for everyone---save it.

EVERYONE PLEASE LISTEN UP!! FARRAH IS JACKIE AND I'M CONVINCED IT IS NOT A BLACK WOMAN AFTER ALL, PERHAPS NOT EVEN A WOMAN

BOTTOM LINE HER LAST COMMENTS ARE A SELFISH, PATHETIC ATTEMPT TO HAVE ALL OF THE ATTENTION FOCUSED AND WRITTEN BACK TO HER. (NOT EVEN THE ORIGINAL TOPIC SEEMS TO BE DISCUSSED ANYMORE).

SINCE WE CAN ALL AGREE TO DISAGREE WITH THE FICTIOUS "FARRAH & JACKIE" LET'S ALL (WHITE, BLACK, LATIN, WHATEVER) TOTALLY DISREGARD ALL OF "ITS" COMMENTS. THIS "PERSON" HAS ISSUES THAT ARE FAR GREATER THAN OUR ADVISE CAN OFFER AND CLEARLY IS A MISERABLE SACK OF ( BROWN, RED, WHITE, BLACK & YELLOW CRAP OF shi*t...

NO MORE E-MAILS TO "HER."

wow    

Oh my God to all of you who keep calling her Miss America....she is NOT Miss America...she is Miss USA. Miss America is a scholariship pageant where the winner travels all around talking about important social issues. Miss USA is a Trump owned beauty contest where the winner goes around to parties and looks pretty.

My two cents    

I think that "Tim" is Farrah too. Same writing style. Now, if Farrah is a white person who is starting a little blog war here, this person, (white, black, pink, blue or male or female or even a he/she), is obviously a sick individual. I agree, let's let it go and have sensible conversations about the topic. I say if Miss California is better than the other idiot who screwed up, yeah for her!!!!

This has nothing to do with race @ all.I just think Miss California was the better contestant,I watched the pageant and thought she would win.She absolutely should have won,she had everything a Miss USA should have and carried herself as such.Ms Nash will do the crown great.

Well, let's see now....hmmmm! It only took one comment before the word "racial" was used on this message board. And the prize goes toooooooo....Farrah!

Yes Farrah you are today's grand prize winner of the "OMG! The Miss USA Pageant is racist" award. So Farrah - you and twenty of yo sistas's will be whisked away to the next filming of the view when one of those ladies makes a slip of the tongue and makes a racial slur. If you or one of yo sistahs can name her before the actual taping you will all be taken for a glorious week's vacation to Darfur - TO SEE WHAT ALL THE WHITE PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD ARE DOING FOR THE BLACK RACE.

You really need to shut your idiotic mouth and take a look at all the good is being done to help your "black: race and quit calling everyone who is not "black" a racist. You are a very stupid sounding person - no matter what color you happen to be.

Holy Iris Avila Halle Berry. Bad behaviour from Tara? What do you expect from these Einsteiners who say bad things about celebrites bad behaviour and the reject of the Gisella Castillo School of Beauty Queens acts like one. HOW MANY TIMES HAVE I TOLD YOU if you look like a reject from Nuestra Belleza International you will be treated like a dumbell. Sayanora.
