Miss USA

Is There Such a Thing

as Too Sexy?

5/9/2010 4:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Miss USA Pageant is being called into question by some of their most loyal fans for posting photos some think are too risqué -- but the pageant feels they are "tasteful and very sexy."

A rep for the pageant tells TMZ they have been fielding tons of calls, calling them out for the provocative pics. The pageant tells us, "You can have brains and be smart and still be sexy."

The Miss USA 2010 pageant airs Sunday May 16 at 7:00 PM on NBC.

Don't miss all the brains.

You guys have to understand that Miss America and Miss USA are two different pageants. In the Miss America system, girls would be (and have been recently) booted for such pictures. Miss USA is a straight-up beauty pageant/modeling competition. It's Miss America that professes to be a scholarship pageant with a talent and platform.

It is sad. Organizers have no respect for America. It's a shame.

I BLAME THE GIRLS for putting themselves into these situations. I always thought part of the competition was having BRAINS not just beauty and talent. I guess a good reputation means nothing to them any more, I guess now a days they will do what ever they are told or what ever they think they have to do to give them that crown, HOW STUPID ARE THEY?????

Yes - too much boob is showing. I draw the line when private parts are not covered. Swimsuit competition is okay. Plus it allows the judges to see the firmness of their body.

This Photo is of Miss VA Samantha Casey, she has a 3.7 GPA at The College of William and Mary. She is a member of several nationally recognized honor societies and she gives back in her free time supporting several local, national and international organizations - Her platform for the pageant is Love146. Go to their website www.Love146.org. She is an advocate raising awareness of the horrific atrocities committed against children through child sex trafficking. Samantha is a humble, quick-witted, generous soul and she happens to be one of my best friends. If you would take a second to stop judging others and instead investigate what it is they stand for and work hard for, you might even find yourself just a little inspired by these girls.

I think this is one of MUO's desperate attempts to get ratings. Mots of these girls look 200 times better in these 'glam shots' than they do in any of their other pics or real life.



They need to get more beautiful, less flashy cougar looking girls. Someone who's future will not be being an NFL cheerleader, trophy wife, porn star, or the Real Housewives of Atlanta if they play their cards right. I am tired of seeing perfectly round softball fake tits too, let the girls compete with swimsuits with cups already. Some of these girls honestly scare me b/c in a few years they could be 45.



Miss USA ratings suffer not b/c of the pageant itself, it is b/c the girl who wins always goes back into obscurity after she holds her title. It doesn't mean anything to be Miss USA, it never leads any of the winners on to anything else. Get a young Anne Hathaway or Keira Knightly, someone who will actually have a career and be relevant and create interest. I'd much rather see a waitress win Miss USA and it mean something to her career than someone with a masters degree who will go back to working behind a desk.

They really dont have much of a choice but to do this. Black and white somewhat risque photos. Truth is most of these women aren't even average in looks. But in these very touched up black and white photos in that attire and posing they become more attractive. Some still looked nasty. Bottom line, most of the women in these pageants are not just dumb, but not attractive either.

I think they should have a nude section of the pageant.



I mean, these pageants are about beauty. It's not like they're there to spout their intelligence for cryin' out loud. Nobody's watching it to listen to their views on solving world problems.



I say more skin!
