Miss USA Pageant

Invites Ex-Miss Delaware ...

Come to the Hot Side!

EXCLUSIVE

Miss America says she's too old, but the Delaware beauty queen who got stripped of her title is about to get a shot at another crown -- with the Donald Trump owned Miss USA pageant.

The people over at Miss USA -- the one with hotter contestants, generally -- tell TMZ they're inviting 
Amanda Longacre to enter their competition for the Delaware crown later this year.

You probably heard ... Amanda was dethroned as Miss Delaware for the Miss America org last month for being too old for their competition ... she turns an ancient 25 in October.

Reps for Miss USA tell us Amanda came on their radar because angry pageant fans have bombarded them with emails and phone calls -- incorrectly thinking they took Longacre's crown. Miss USA's website now has a message urging fans to bitch at the real villain ... Miss America.

For the record -- Miss USA contestants can be up to 27, so Amanda's good to go in that department.

No word yet on if she'll take another run at the crown.

All the publicity over what happened might give her an unfair advantage. I hope she passes on this offer.

These beauty pageants are such a rip off for the contestants, but a financial gold mine for the corporations that run them. Twenty-five too old? No, but pageant officials figure by that age most career contestants are too savvy to be worth wasting time on. The best contestants are young and fairly dumb/inexperienced. They do what officials tell them to do.

Beauty contest are the stupidest thing in the world. Because of his money Donald Trump turns his Stepford wife in for a replacement every 10 years and gets a new beauty queen. Him and the contests are for the birds just like the nest on his head.

All of these pageants are ridiculous and should be done away with. It's a garish parade for the superficial and vapid judgement of women, mostly done by old men.

With Miss America, you actually win something, a Scholarship for school. in Miss USA the only thing you win is the Pleasure or Disgust however you want to take it, to get down on your Knees in front of Donald Trump.
