The Miss USA Pageant is embroiled in controversy. Miss Pennsylvania has resigned claiming the entire event was fixed. Donald Trump denies the allegations and is filing a lawsuit. We in the Army of Awesome People never know who to believe. However, I did notice the following 9 other things wrong with the Miss USA Pageant:
-The winner’s ‘talent’ was ‘giving money to judges’
-There was a ‘Miss Al-Qaeda.’ I don’t think a terrorist organization deserved representation.
-20 minutes into the show, half of the contestants were eliminated for not being ‘Miss Rhode Islandy’ enough. There seemed to be some impropriety in this.
-Miss Ohio was clearly a puppet
-The moment of silence for Dick Clark was nice, but it was 45 minutes long. It was difficult to sit through that much silence.
-Judge Arsenio Hall should have taken his bathroom breaks DURING the commercials. It wasn’t fair to make the entire audience wait for him to get back.
-It just happened to be the year that the pageant was opened to the transgendered and a contestant who looked suspiciously like Donald Trump in an evening gown did unusually well.
-Huge chunks of the show were clearly just footage from the film “Miss Congeniality”
-The credits at the end of the show stated ‘3 animals were injured/killed in the making of this show.’ When/how/why did this happen???
