Miss Washington --

One Bad Apple!

7/9/2008 6:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miss Washington 2007 might wanna take the crown off before flipping off the camera, getting her Beer Pong on and making suggestive oral sex gang signs.

Elyse Umemoto
Elyse Umemoto, who was the second runner-up in this year's Miss America pageant, ran on a platform promoting diversity and women's empowerment. The Evergreen State must be so proud.

Miss Washington Executive Field Director Mike Miller tells TMZ the organization is "embarrassed," and issued this lengthy statement.

If you sign up to be a representitive for your state, don't take raunchy photos. Pretty much, if you don't want photos to get out on the internet....DONT TAKE THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!!! Yank her crown! How disrespectful to do that while you are getting paid to represent the place that you call home. If I did that while at my job I'd be fired....simple.

Ha, ha, Haaaaaaaa! This is rich. All you people saying, "Oh she was just partying. Or, what's the big deal?" Well, it is a big deal. You want to go out and party it up with lots of booze and liquour, and then make overt signs of oral sex, and pose prevocatively? Great! Do it! But that is not the role of a crown beauty queen of the state. The the contestants are fully aware of the image they are suppose to upkeep while they have the crown. This is a blantent, rude, disregard for the honor and priviledge that has been bestowed on them. I am actually not a huge fan of beauty contests, even though it may sound like I am. But I do understand the underlying principle this instituion invests in trying to preserve the title and contest as a wholesome image and one to be taken with great pride and humility, along with proper public graces and forms. Perhaps that is just an art that is long forgotten in all of the trash and grossness on the internet today.

71% say yes? At least one of her "friends" should be fired, um, from friendhood. She should be able to live her life as most young people do, without losing her meaningless crown. Who cares!

How old are these photos, and where did they come from? The crown she is wearing is a smaller version from when she was a local titleholder, i.e. before she was Miss Washington.

This girl has done so much for her community and her personal platform work. It's really disappointing to see all of that become completely overshadowed by these photos. For every one "bad apple beauty queen" there are thousands more that represent their communities, cities, and states in a professional, intelligent, and graceful manner. It's sad to see one girl tarnish that image and reputation for the rest of the Miss America beauty queen community.

Think you can do better? Check out this nation is always in need of young women who are up to the challenge of being a role model.

Don't theses pageants check out people, first? Look at this idiot, she doesn't even look like beauty queen material! Kick her out, and get someone worthy!

If I am blessed one day to have a girl child, I will constantly warn them about not posing for any racy photos. I see these stupid little girls on Girls Gone Wild and I cringe because I know that the rest of their lives are going to be negatively effected by what they are doing. This behavior has unfortuantely become commonplace.

I get so sick of reading about the rather questionable escapades of models, actresses, singers, and beauty queens and the comments people leave saying "oh, she's young". I have news for you, it's NOT "normal" for a young woman to behave that way, perhaps in your own little small town with your ignorant friends, but not everyone in the free world acts like this!! This is what is wrong with our young people, drinking, drugs and promiscuity being portrayed as "normal"!! You will feel differently when you grow up, have a daughter of your own and what if you found these pictures of her? Just shrug it off and call it normal....i highly doubt it!

Oh my white sisters, must we belittle ourselves for the almighty dollar? Must we always look, dress and act like "hookers in heat"? There is only so much room at The Playboy Mansion, from what I hear it's pretty full! I am so ashamed of these girls and what they represent and project to the up and coming generation. We are in trouble America!

Im from Seattle and still have no idea how this whore got the vote. There were so many hotter girls out there to pick from. The contest has been fixed as far as I can remember. Yank her crown.

I agree with Larry way back from the's youngsters have a touch of evil about them. This is a generation where both parents work day and night and leave the kids home alone. Now the little sickies want attention DESPERATELY! Making bombs in the garage, stripping for any camera around and posting it, planning mass murder at school, willing to go on any reality TV show despite looking inbred, making teenage baby pacts, beating up others and posting on YOUTUBE, killing homeless people for thrills...and the list goes on and on. These idiots will soon be running your country. It is up to parents NOW to give these children they bear some TLC. Our future depends on it!
