While watching Miss Teen USA 1990 today I noticed after Bridgette was crowned and sat in her throne not one contestant came up to hug and congratulate her. Was she not liked by the rest of the 1990 class?

Is it normal to reach out to a pageant photographer and just not hear back? I used their website portal months ago... nothing. Tried an Instagram message a month after when I saw an updated travel schedule.... nothing. Used a direct email address that they posted for bookings..... nothing still!

They’re very reputable, so I’m completely confused. I don’t know what I’m missing here. I don’t want to hound them, and I suppose if they’re just not interested in shooting then fine? But to never respond to inquiries about rates and scheduling strikes me as very odd.

Then she puked some more and the apple shook

Miss Universe just schooled one of the judges for tonight's pageant ... telling her it looks really bad that she's only following Latina contestants on social media. 
Pageant sources tell us Judge Lele Pons has been told it compromises the competition that she's only following Miss Mexico, Miss Venezuela and Miss Colombia ... making it appear they have an advantage.
We're told the officials told Lele to unfollow them STAT.
Our sources say Lele fired back she doesn't think she did anything wrong ... she's a Latina and that's just who she follows.
Lele has just unfollowed the women.

I think Janelle "Penny" Commissiong's win was very historic. I remember living in Africa and it was a huge, huge deal.

Look how calm she is during her interview with Johnny Carson.

I am hearing the talk of how a contestant was marked down for being short. I am submitting into evidence the beautiful Julie Khoury, Miss Oklahoma USA 1991. She won the preliminary swimsuit competition. She is only 5 feet two inches. The body and face of a goddess.

The 6'1" amazon beauty who recently won Miss California USA will be an excellent addition to the Miss USA Pageant. She is lovely, intelligent, with a personality to match.

Here is a clip from Ellen that gives you a little insight into this lovely young woman.

I know network TV ratings are down across the board, and the greater importance of international markets, but this trend looks pretty ominous:

2017 (Nov 2017): aired on Sunday
1.1 rating, 4.41 million viewers
2016 (Jan 2017): aired on Sunday
1.5 rating, 5.22 million viewers
2015 (Dec 2015): aired on Sunday, first one on Fox with IMG, Steve Harvey's "mistake"
1.7 rating, 6.2 million viewers
2014 (Jan 2015): aired on Sunday, last one on NBC/Trump
2.0 rating, 7.6 million viewers
2013 (Nov 2013): aired on Saturday
0.9 rating, 3.8 million viewers
2012 (Dec 2012): aired on Wednesday
1.8 rating, 6.1 million viewers

California USA Contestant Loses Points For Being “Too Short”
By Allison Kratz On DECEMBER 5, 2017 | 3 Comments |
While most pageants, including Miss USA, like to say contestants’ heights do not matter in competition, is that really the case? One judge for the Miss California USA 2018 pageant does not seem to think so. (Read: Pageant Question: Height Requirement for Miss USA)

Updated at 4:03 p.m. to reflect Miss California USA Executive State Director Alex Kuty’s comments.

About the judge’s post

One judge for the Miss California USA 2018 pageant, Ellina Abovian, negatively marked a contestant last weekend for being “too short.” Abovian shared her score sheet on social media with the caption “cut throat.” The photo shared clearly shows the preliminary judges comments sheet with Abovian’s name as the judge in the top right corner of the sheet and a comment, “too short” for one of the contestants. Fortunately, the name of the contestant was not in the frame of the picture.

The Miss California USA pageant operates with a “mention system” of pageant judging, meaning that they do not use numerical scoring. State Director, Alex Kuty said, “The judge was simply trying to express how difficult it was to narrow down 100 contestants to a top 20. Each judge is entitled to their own opinions and this is why we have a diverse group of eight judges who determine who the best representative for our state. I have nothing but confidence in the integrity of our program and the amazing opportunities and experience it creates for the young woman who participate in it.”

There has been no proof that Abovian meant to express her difficulty selecting the top 20 contestants. It is also unclear whether Abovian’s negative comment had an impact on the final results of the judging.

Abovian posted to Instagram after Kelley Johnson was crowned the winner. Abovian’s post featured a picture of herself and Johnson with the caption, “Congratulations to the beautiful & very tall @realnursekelley our new Miss California 2018.” Both posts have since been deleted but were captured by professional hair and makeup artist Austin Ryde before they disappeared.

While Abovian has not commented further on the height remarks she made, she has removed the post of herself and Kelley Johnson. Abovian did not cite any specific instruction given by the Miss California USA director or program in her reasoning for taking a contestant’s height into consideration during the judging process. Abovian is a former Miss California USA contestant and a current journalist and reporter for a local Los Angeles news site, KTLA. (Read: How to Win Over a Former Titleholder Judge In Interview)

About this impact on the industry

While many in the fashion and pageant industry are calling for increased diversity within titleholders and competitors, the judges clearly are not listening. Height or weight requirements may not be explicitly stated in information packets or judges manuals but they are certainly enforced by individual judges’ preconceived notions of what a pageant titleholder should be.

If pageant judges are deducting points or negatively marking a contestant for something she cannot control, like her height, will the industry really ever change? What do you think? Let us know below!
