Subject: Eras of Miss USA

So this is how I think of the history of Miss USA. It is not necessarily related to the changing ownership or broadcast networks or anything. It's just how I tend to view the different periods. I'd be curious to know what others think.

Ancient History: 1952 to 1969
This is before I started watching, so I don't have much connection to these titleholders.

The Early Days: 1970 to 1979
The first pageant I can remember watching was 1970 (Debbie Shelton). I feel like the 70s had some ups and downs. There were some great titleholders (e.g., Debbie Shelton) but mostly it seems like a not-so-good decade.

The Golden Age: 1980 to 1997
This was a long period bookended by Miss Universe winners. I feel like the pageant hit its stride in this era and also became more diverse (the first Latina, African American, and Asian winners). There were a few winners that I didn't get at all, but overall these were good years. This period includes the 5 Texas aces.

Transition Years: 1998 to 2002
I think MUO was trying to figure out what Miss USA should be like and what the pageant should be like. For a while, they tried "plain and simple" (along the lines of Miss America... awful!) and some of the pageants themselves were terrible, especially 2001.

The Modern Era: 2003 to 2015, 2018
These are the years that seem like Miss USA as we know it today. Lots of great winners, although there was a period where I feel they rewarded bodies that were way too thin. But overall, I like these titleholders.

The Asterisk Years: 2016, 2017
I think of both of these years as an aberration, when they were much more interested in "stories" than anything else. This is nothing against Deshauna or Kara; it just felt like things were out of kilter those two years. At the most recent pageant it seemed like they found a better balance once again.

I thought it might be fun to deconstruct this crowning moment. Please add you own comments or do the same for a different year!



0:03 Yoinks, it seems even weirder to see this man in the audience now.

0:38 I do not miss Jeannie Mai and her mindless clapfart "commentary." I'm so glad they have replaced her.

1:00 You can hear the boos when Jamaica was called as 4th runner up. I was surprised too. At this point I was expecting her to finish at least in the top two.

1:10 Netherlands and USA seem to have a bit of a moment about whether or not to hold hands. I felt bad for Nia in that awkward instant.

1:29 I was surprised Netherlands went that far. Also, notice that she did not want to take those flowers, LOL.

2:25 The way the light was shining on Colombia's dress, I thought for sure we were going to see her chimichanga.

2:47 Colombia wins. Although she was probably the favorite before the pageant (I remember that I predicted she would win), this felt like a disappointment because the way the pageant had gone up till then it seemed like they were going to reward a different kind of beauty, like Jamaica. Oh well...

Remember back in the day when MUO would commission special music for the pageants? The opening numbers for Miss Universe often had special songs written to match the locale (and some of these got stuck in my head for years) and Miss USA also had its own music at various periods.

One of my favorites was the music they used after the crownings in the late 90s. You can hear it at the end of the clip of Brook Lee's crowning.

Mary Therese Friel
Kimberly Pressler
Shauntay Hinton
Rima Fakih
Deshauna Barber*

Although I thought Deshauna had a terrific resume and story to tell, I felt Miss Hawaii would have been a more deserving choice.

Miss USA Sarah Rose Summers has a sunny outlook on her future.

The 24-year-old beauty queen from Nebraska is engaged to her longtime boyfriend, Connor Combs, who proposed the same night she moved on to the semi-finals of the Miss Universe pageant in Thailand, on Dec. 17.

“I knew Thailand would change my life, but what I did not realize was that it would also be where I begin a new lifelong journey,” she shared on Instagram, captioning a photo with Combs.

“On Dec 17, not only did I represent my country on an international stage, but I also said yes to forever with my best friend. I cannot stop hugging on my fiancé, staring at my ring, and smiling thinking about it. NY POST

1. I would like to dispense with the selection of finalist by region. It's the reason why I hated affirmative action in education. The best and only the best should be finalist, not from where they live.

2. I would enjoy Top 20. Top 10, and then Top 5. Q&A followed by 4th,3rd,2nd,1st runners up and winner.

3. I think Steve Harvey has run it's course. Time for someone new. Any suggestions? I always thought Ryan Seacrest would be very good.

4. 3 hours is to long. 2-2 1/2 hrs. max.

5. A more diverse international panel of judges for prelim. and finals.

I realize that changing it back may lead to numerous posts made by neanderthals...however that's what good and steady monitoring can eliminate. Your thoughts?

Date Posted: 13:45:51 12/20/18 Thu

A former board member of the Miss America Organization, as well as four Miss America pageant state organization licensees, filed a civil lawsuit Wednesday requesting a temporary restraining order and preliminary court injunction to remove MAO chairwoman Gretchen Carlson and President and CEO Regina Hopper.

The suit filed in Atlantic County Superior Court alleges that Carlson and Hopper "orchestrated an illegal and bad-faith takeover of the Miss America Organization."

Jennifer Vaden Barth, a former Miss America state titleholder who was announced as a board member in March and later forcibly resigned a few months later, is named as the plaintiff, along with the Miss Pennsylvania, Miss Tennessee, Miss West Virginia and Miss Georgia pageants.

According to the complaint, beginning in January, Carlson defied the organization's bylaws on several occasions including making herself sole chairwoman of the Board of Trustees, appointing Hopper without a national search for a CEO and enacting pre-signed resignation letters of elected Miss America board members Barth and Valerie Crooker Clemens in June.

Barth previously told The Press of Atlantic City that the MAO was in need of "good, strong, ethical management and leadership there ... and we don’t have that.”

On Sept 23, Barth started the "MAO Leadership Change Fund" on the crowdsourcing website GoFundMe. Since then, more than 300 donors have raised $41,832 to retain New Jersey corporate and nonprofit attorney Paul I. Perkins of Kim & Bae, P.C.

In the months following this year's pageant, one of four letters were sent to the board of directors of the 51 state organizations that send contestants to the national competition. The letters either detailed the termination of the state organization's operating license, a notice of default on the state organization agreement, a notice of possible license termination or a request for information regarding the state organization board of director's actions against the MAO.

The complaint states "while failing to set forth any specific facts or circumstances that would constitute a default under the State Organization Agreements, the termination letters stated that 'MAO hereby notifies the state organizations that MAO has terminated the State Organization Agreement effective immediately by reason of the State Organization Agreement'."

Perkins states the terminations violated the state licensing agreements and were improper under New Jersey law.

Two months before the Miss America 2019 Competition, state pageant executive directors signed a "vote of no confidence" online petition, stating they wished to see MAO chairwoman Gretchen Carlson and President and CEO Regina Hopper step down from their leadership roles.

A few signatures were rescinded leading up to the pageant, but allegations of workplace bullying by then-reigning Miss America 2018 Cara Mund led to a movement of 41 state organizations, 23 former Miss Americas and more than 23,000 local pageant volunteers supporting Mund and calling for the current leadership to resign.

Seven states; New Jersey, New York, Florida, Georgia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Tennessee have had their franchise-like licensing through the State Organization Agreements revoked.

This story is developing. Check back later for more on this story.

Subject: So this has been confirmed but who knows what might happen. If there will be top 20 expect that there will be 18 spot contested. 2 is reserved for North and South Korea. Yes, there will be a Ms.North Korea!

Subject: FROM ME TOO TO JUST ME......GRETCHEN CARLSON

When Fox News fired Gretchen Carlson she opened the door to the MeToo movement and massive changes have happened at Fox News. Fox News insiders say the company is no longer run on fear and is a much better place to work.

As for Carlson, she has gone from MeToo to all about me.
When she wrote her book, “Be Fierce” she donned her leather jacket and criss crossed the country promoting it.
Since this was about sexual harassment in a TV newsroom, we thought that Carlson would be a good guest to talk to on the FTVLive podcast. We thought that she could offer up advice to people working on TV news and maybe help them out.

FTVLive reaches more people working on local TV newsrooms than anyone else, it seemed like a perfect avenue.
But, as we exchanged messages with Carlson, it seemed clear to us that she was much more about herself than other people. We looked at Carlson has a hero for what she did, but the more we talked with her the clearer it became that she was not about MeToo, she was more about just me.
So, it came as no surprise that when we saw a story in the New York Post yesterday about how the Miss American Pageant (Which Carlson now heads up) is in a crisis mode.
Atlantic City came out saying that they no longer want to pageant and will no longer pay the big bucks that Miss America was demanding from them to host it.
“The Miss America Organization is interviewing cities to partner with Miss America 2.0 as it prepares to celebrate its 100th anniversary,” reads a Request for Proposal for the 2020 and 2021 Miss America competition obtained by the newspaper.

The organization wants the new host city to cough up between $2.5 million and $4.9 million to stage the pageant, plus another $325,000 for other expenses.
Oh and one more thing….
They will also need to put Miss America chairwoman Gretchen Carlson up in a presidential suite.
Like we said, it is all about me.

Our new Miss Universe, Catriona Gray of the Philippines also has a very nice voice. She earned a Certificate in Music Theory from Berklee College of Music in Boston.

Here is a link where she sings "Fire and Rain."

Fox's broadcast of the Miss Universe pageant was fairly steady Sunday, and football gave a lift to CBS and NBC.
The Miss Universe competition drew a 1.1 rating among adults 18-49 for Fox, even with the 2017 pageant (which aired in late November). It was down a little bit in viewers, averaging 4.19 million people vs. 4.46 million a year ago.

A few thoughts on the pageant...

The Good
- I liked the big stage with the X runways.
- They finally are giving contestants a little more time with swimsuit and evening gown; the past few years felt so rushed.
- I think that was a very worthy winner, a completely legitimate Top 5, and I can't really object to anyone in the Top 20. I was just surprised Ecuador and India were passed over.
- They seem to have (finally!) coached the contestants about how to use an interpreter and how to break up their thoughts into smaller bits.
- I loved that they took some time to acknowledge Spain. That was probably my favorite moment of the pageant.

The Bad
- Like everyone else, I hate the regional Top 20.
- In intros, I wish they had the contestants at least say their names.
- At first I didn't like the idea of breaking up the intros by regions, but when there are 94 contestants I can understand that they wanted to break it up a bit.
- Steve Harvey. Enough already. I am so tired of the jokes about his "error." To me, the host should be more or less invisible and just keep things running.

The Weird
- Not sure what I think of the personal statements (or whatever they were called). I like the idea that we get to hear the semifinalists speak, but this felt super awkward to me and it smacks of Miss America. And I don't like cutting half of the contestants just based on this 15-second blurb. It seems like most of the judges probably knew who they wanted in the Top 10 anyway and made the cut based on that, rather than anything that happened in the short speech.

I just listened to what Miss USA said regarding Miss Cambodia and Vietnam. Actually I thought what she said about Miss Vietnam was worse than what she said about Cambodia. Either way though, it was tacky, in-called for, and simply catty. I don't think it reached to the level of bullying though. She did apologize, but what she said resonated with everyone.
