Second Miss USA Contestant Claims Pageant Was Fixed: [ send to a friend ]
This after Miss Pennsylvania USA, Sheena Monnin, cited a similar incident last week and said the Miss USA pageant was fixed.
"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 contestant, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told Fox News.
"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 pageant, Miss Florida Karina Brez, and Donald Trump have all vehemently denied the allegations.
In fact, Trump, who owns the Miss Universe Organization's, threatened to sue Monnin over her comments. They haven't reacted to the latest statements.
"A lot of the girls now are very upset about how Pennsylvania is being treated and aggressively attacked by an organization that claims to empower women," adds the contestant. "But if they had to testify in court, I'm sure the girls would do it."
