Miss Pennsylvania

Miss SC & Miss CO Were

Too Ugly for Top 16

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.

Based on the headline, I expected SC and CO to be trolls. SC looks to have a huge honker, but it could be a bad angle. Neither one of them "lack in the face" as much as PA "lacks in the tact."

Maybe the pageant was rigged, who knows, but texting that kind of garbage is classless and could have been handled much better.

Beauty is subjective. Having said that, when we were watching the pageant, we were surprised by some of the choices. Miss SC is a little mannish looking and she lacks an upper lip. Miss CO is very flat and really doesn't have much of a figure and her face is very average looking. There were other girls not chosen, who were much prettier. Maybe it's rigged and maybe not. In the grand scheme of things, it's just not that important.

She should look in the mirror! They could pass for triplets, those three.

The 3 broads pictured in the main story look exactly alike to me. Just tired of these stupid pageants anyhow. And if you really care if you are prettier than the next state, you have bigger problems, my dear.

I don't know if this was brought before as I am not going to look through hundreds of comments but did anyone notice that during the beginning of the show both Miss Pennsylvania and Miss Rhode Island came out at the same time. While Miss Pennsylvania was strutting down the runaway, Miss Rhode Island was hamming it up in the back. Miss South Carolina came next after these two and It is quite likely they were talking smack to each other before their runway walks as they wait in line to go out. Miss Colorado was unfortunately thrown into the fray.

Hm....Miss Pennsylvania appears to have mismatched eyeballs. They don't track.

And all of them look like weight builders, or guys. No curves, not feminine. When did this occur?
