Miss USA rigged: The plot, as they say, continues to thicken. According to Fox News, another contestant from this year’s pageant has stepped forward, claiming that the whole shebang was rigged. However, the individual refuses to reveal her identity, a decision which may have something to do with Donald Trump’s impending lawsuit against Miss Pennsylvania.
The nameless individual has revealed that she was informed about a top-secret document containing a list of the Top 5 contestants by Miss Florida Karina Brez. The list, apparently, was pieced together before the Top 15 were even announced.
“I saw Florida backstage and she was very, very flustered and upset. I thought it might be because she didn’t make the top 15 cut, but at that point she was able to reveal to me at least four of the five names who went on to be the top girls,” the anonymous contestant explained. “She couldn’t remember the fifth because she was so upset. Several of the girls then started hearing through the grapevine about a list; a lot of people were upset.”
The Miss Universe Organization, meanwhile, is none too please with Miss Pennsylvania Sheena Monnin, who was the first one to step forward with the allegations. In fact, they fully intended to file a lawsuit against the woman for her statements.
“The Miss Universe Organization intends on pursuing all of its legal rights and remedies, including monetary damages, against Ms. Monnin for her ongoing defamatory statements,” a representative said. The organization also claims that Pennsylvania dropped out of the competition due to their stance on transgender contestants.
Trump, who owns the Miss USA Pageant, insists that Monnin is nothing more than a sore loser.
