Subject: You CANNOT be serious with this post. Her dress was unattractive, her question was obviously given to her before the pageant because her answer was soooo canned, and her body is no way ready for Mrs America. With so little time before the pageant she was not the "entire package" just a favorite of the director (who by the way was helping her). Just not okay with the "different judges different year" here because oviously you have to "know the judges" to win.

In reply to: 2010 Contestant 's message, "Re: WA is a great example of unfair judging. The judges know everyone who's competed before. This is why people think pageants are all rigged. It's because of unscrupulous directors like this one that would rather keep it a good old girls club then be honest and let the chips fall where they may. I always heard the Marmels were honest people but if they don't care that their state directors openly have past queens and repeat judges then I guess I was heard wrong." on 19:32:10 06/30/10 Wed

I am TOTALLY SERIOUS about my post! So please be polite! Carla earned her win and if others think they're better than she then they need to get a gripe on things. There were many deserving women this year, things lined up for Carla. And her dress was just fine, it had the elements it needed, fit her perfectly and she walked with grace and poise. Her ethics and personality are something that we are proud to have as a Mrs. Washington! Not everyone is harboring the same resentment issues or believes that this pageant is rigged. The director was/is willing to help EVERYONE that reaches out to her. So get over it, the pageant is over, Carla has won and I plan to fully support her!

Thank you. I believe part of the issue is that "observers" only see what is presented on stage that night. She may not have appeared as a front runner to the audience, but from backstage and being with her all year I can tell you see was. You should never under estimate someone based on appearance.

[> [> [> [> Subject: You CANNOT be serious with you post!! There was not single lady who competed who does not need some work or adjustments, that's reality! Everyone was told the questions will be about your platform or what you will do as Mrs. Washington, Carla was prepared and is an excellent speaker! You can photoshop your face, get botox, plastic surgery or whatever but you can't photoshop or medically enhance your soul!!
