Subject: Well I know if I was competing I would rather a girl at least have some sort of ties to the state she is representing. (I think I remember Olivia Jordan was from Oklahoma and went to college there?). I dont like the idea, for example, of a girl being from Louisiana and competing in Oregon with absolutely zero affiliation there. So I would rather play the residency requirement game to at least have the perception of representation.

In reply to: lolling 's message, "I agree. I don't understand the defensiveness over the loose residency requirements. It's not fooling anyone. You'd think directors would want easier standards as the number of statehoppers would likely be higher." on 12:04:54 03/16/17 Thu

[> [> [> [> [> [> [> [> Subject: I'm with you on this. The state title comes with state appearances. Wouldn't you want someone who had some connection to the state? My daughter will jump ship and compete her final year as a teen in the state she will be going to college. She will spend more time there over the next four years than she will at home and she has other connections to that state. If not she'd still be competing for her home title.

Why have state titles if they aren't legit, why not have names?

[> [> [> [> [> [> [> [> [> Subject: State appearances?? Olivia Jordan again. She was born in Oklahoma, but no, she didn't go to college there. She moved out of OK when she was 18 and won the state title when she was 25. Seven years later! She never bothered about any state appearances. Appearances are not obligatory, are they? If MUO thinks it's OK for OJo to represent Oklahoma, because she had graduated from high shool there seven years earlier - fine with me.

Just call it "connection to the state requirement". It's not residency requirement if you can reside in LA and be fine.

[> [> [> [> [> [> [> [> Subject: I agree. I think MUO is striking a balance between traditional state representation and creating opportunities for the best girls to advance to Miss USA. If you don't like it, then don't compete in their pageant system. Their pageant; they set the rules.
