Miss Pennsylvania

Miss SC & Miss CO Were

Too Ugly for Top 16

6/12/2012 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

All three of them look alike - long, dark hair, not cute, not ugly. Miss SC needs to be in a fitness contest, not a beauty pageant.

She has far too high of an opinion of herself ... besides, aren't these pageants not just judging one's looks but also one's composure, talent, attitude and all sorts of things aside from the aesthetics of their face? I mean if somebody has a crappy attitude it can really knock off some serious points ... in life as it is in pageants.

The pageant is not for beautiful girls. This Pageant is about money, girls spend at least five thousand dollars. girls get emails every single week about companies that sell dresses, shoes, make up, the list goes on and on. then you donate money and prom dresses. I want to know who claims for those donations. and the 2 days you stay in the competition the girls eat subway. If you do not believe ask the pageants from NY State.

Dear ms. Pennsylvania. You are a jealous hateful woman.You should be stripped of any crown or title you have won for lack of sportsman ship. Your opinion is like an ******* everybody has one. I'm sure when you won your title several people thought you were not pretty enough-in the face or in personality but you won your state anyway.If it is true that another contestant saw a secret Miss USA do***ent which contained the names of the Top 5 finalists before they were announced, you should stuck with that comment ONLY. You other comments were nasty, unfounded and in bad taste.If anything YOU ARE THE UGLY ONE OVERALL.

Ms Pennsylvania needs to take a good long look at her eye brows before she calls anyone else ugly. And her shirt isn't haute couture either.

Miss Colorado made it to top 10 over you for the following reasons: First of all she is way more beautiful then you are, second of all she is younger, and yes youth is always going to be an advantage especially because you look like your 30 or more. Third of all she has something you will never have which is that she is fierce and she has the X factor. Your pathetic you have to be a hater to get some attention. Oh and Miss Colorado did not have to be in pageants for ten years to win a crown. She also is not emotionally bankrupt the way you are... Your just too ugly on the inside to even bother with the outside. Oh and I do not have to be psychologist to know that you suffer from some major complexes....

I'm sorry, but I have to agree with her. I was suprised by some people. Miss USA IS about a gorgeous face and sexy body and I have no idea what the state judges are thinking sending some girls. Pretty and intelligent ladies should go to Miss America. She's just speaking what the judges are thinking about the rest of the do you think they pick 16?
