Miss Pennsylvania

Miss SC & Miss CO Were

Too Ugly for Top 16

EXCLUSIVE

Miss Colorado
and Miss South Carolina shouldn't have made the Top 16 at the Miss USA pageant this year because they lacked in the face ... this according to ex-Miss Pennsylvania Sheena Monnin.

Miss USA organization sources gave TMZ text messages it claims Sheena sent to a pageant official during the Miss USA competition ... in which Sheena first says the competition was rigged.

In the text exchange, Sheena writes, "Colorado? South Carolina? I'm done. This is ridiculous. It's obviously rigged so the girl they want can shine; they kept several beautiful girls out for that reason."

Miss USA sources believe the text messages show Sheena's conspiracy theory is emotionally-motivated ... NOT based on any facts ... and is therefore BS.

Sheena has recently claimed she learned another contestant saw a secret Miss USA document which contained the names of the Top 5 finalists before they were announced ... and even though Sheena never personally saw the document, she refuses to admit she could be wrong. 

(The Miss Universe organization has filed a defamation claim against Sheena for making the allegation.)

The texts don't exactly disprove Sheena's rigged theory -- but they DO show how shamelessly catty pageants are behind the scenes.

Calls to Monnin, Miss CO Marybel Gonzalez, and Miss SC Erika Powell were not returned.

For the record, we think they're hot.

This Miss Penn is delusional. Both Miss Colorado and Miss South Carolina look better in the face than her. And Miss Penn has no butt. Stop whining because you lost.

Why is there always drama on this show? Why is this competition even on TV? Gone should be the days where we judge women on their beauty. Knowing Donald Trump, I'm sure he sets this drama crap up for ratings.

You know Miss Pennsylvania spends a small fortune getting waxed every moth. Look at her....you just know she's got wookie hair all over. Might be part of the source of her bitterness and envy.

Notice the guys commenting on here think the girls are hot but the chicks posting do not. That is proof positive the two contestants are hot.

Those girls are pretty ugly no question about that. Miss Rhode Island probably looked like something between a hormonal Rosie O'Donnell and Miss Piggy in a bathing suit and makeup.

I'm normally all for someone who wants to take Trump down a peg or two. And was all for this girl calling him out. But now she is starting to sound like a jelous, bitter brat. Miss CO And Miss SC are pretty.

Her awesome drawn on eyebrows give her that "always surprised" look. My grandma does that too.

Miss SC is hot! But Miss CO? Not so much. I have to agree. She has a boy's body and hardly a looker. Then again, beauty is in the eye. Of course it's fixed, Trump decides who the winner is based on best couch performance. lol

She's right - those 2 are pretty bad. Miss Colorado looks like a scrawny 8-year-old wearing a wig that is 3 sizes too big for her. And she dyed her hair WAY too black. Looks more like a disguise than a head of hair.
It's funny though, remember when everyone in the pageants were blonde? Now the wh0re (kim kartrashian) effect is in full force, they all want to have black hair. Sad.
But she *is* right. Those two above would never land in top contestants in a normal un-rigged pageant.

Also, this isn't the first time Trump has been accused of rigging the contest - he's probably tried to scrub it from the internet, but I'm sure it's still there someplace. Someone exposed the fact that Trump selects who makes the final rounds by their photographs before the contest even starts.
I remember reading all about it and thought what a strange man, to look like he lives under a rock and then think he could scam people in a beauty pageant this way.

FOUND IT! This is from 2009!

Pageant choreographer quoted as saying Trump picks finalists

An interview with a choreographer for the Miss Universe pageant spurred controversy Wednesday over alleged claims that Donald Trump personally selects some of the finalists.

The Q&A with Michael Schwandt, which appeared on Guanabee.com, quotes him as saying that "it's just kind of common knowledge that [Trump] picks six of the top 15 single-handedly."

"And, his reason for doing so, as he told me and he's told the girls before, is that he left it all up to preliminary judging in the past, and some of the most beautiful women, in his opinion, were not in the top 15, and he was kind of upset about that," the story quotes Schwandt as saying. "And he decided that he would pick a certain number and let the judges pick a certain number."
