Subject: Miss Universe cares so little about Florida that a month after firing their directors going into their 40th year and the leaders in Television and Social Media Pageant Reporting that they haven't event announced a new director. Thus leaving the 50 local titleholders in the dark. They are also less then 60 days out of Miss USA and no dates yet for our reigning titleholder. Buyer beware......

All ducks should have been lined up beforehand. Some were even planning for local pageants in the following week or two when the plug was pulled.

Oh please! Get over it Grant. you were crooked, you got caught, you got fired. This is a case of the pot calling the kettle black. were was the warning when you defrauded dozens of girls by holding prelims and taking their money when you knew you were no longer getting your contract renewed. You just went on business as usual and planned all these prelims and lined your pockets with these poor girls' money. You knew your jig was up and took advantage of them. And now you are crying foul??? SHAME ON YOU!

Oh and the ad page money, at 50 contestants x $1,200, there's another $60,000. Where is all the money Grant? You are the one who cheated, lied and hand picked your winners to benefit yourself. You and no one else ruined your parents legacy and good name! I'd rather MUA take a little time in announcing a new director and then see Florida finally get on the right path, one of honesty and integrity, you know, like it was BEFORE Jr destroyed it!Oh

All I know is...I want to keep competing and now I don't know if the preliminary I was planning to compete in is still happening at all or if it will be later along with the rest of the preliminaries that were supposed to be held my now? How will the new director catch up on all that or will there even still be preliminary pageants? Or will we just hold a state pageant every year like most other states? And what about all the titleholders that have won already? They're titles are no longer void? That's not fair to them. MUO needs to get on with getting a director already and they shouldn't have fired Grant until they had someone already lined up and prepared to take his place. It's very frustrating and I don't care for the nonchalant attitude some of you have about it.

[> [> Subject: That's the thing- everyone is going on about all the money Grant is pulling in from the prelim entry fees, but the reality is that the costs to hold those prelims probably outweigh the money he takes in. Venues cost serious money. With only a few entrants, I'd bet it's hard to break even after paying the expenses.

[> [> [> Subject: Umm nope, here's a reality check for you. For starters Grant was holding prelims WITHOUT a renewed contract Secondly as for how much he put out to hold them, for the very few he did out of South Florida he used hotel conference rooms and banquet halls that either donated their space or charged about the cost of 1 1/2 contestants entry fee. And as for all of his South Florida pageants, that was free for him at his studio!

Attacking Linette and Brie with FALSE allegations is just WRONG and mean. I see a lot of bitter people on this board that really have an axe to grind. It's sad that the jealousy is so rampant . Beauty pageants = 1 winner and LOTS of losers, and I guess that explains it.

Okay, for all you skeptics, let me tell you what I KNOW is, more like WAS and I've been a judge for several years this is why the Gravitt's ESPECIALLY GRANT NEVER EVER need to be in the ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY AGAIN EVER... First of all, the ONLY way they made money for decades was by ripping off beautiful girls, both in prelims and at nationals who are new to the Florida MUSA system. They make damn sure that dispite of Winners being over weight and messing up during on stage question the EXACT SAME winners from the previous prelim win bc that secures spots and fees for nationals. Making it UNFAIR to the girls who have tried MULTIPLE times although were told the tabulation meant they won but the card in which was read say otherwise... Genesis isn't innocent and was still shady af but had rightfully won Miss FL USA but Linette was a sore loser and so was her family so they had to take her down, and Brie ONLY won bc her rich family paid the Gravitts off.

[> Subject: Why isn't anyone complaining to Grant about handing over the social media so that the new director can get this project moving? He's complaining about FL USA being ignored, but he's surely not taking the high road on this at all. And he did walk away with at least $30K from the titleholders he crowned without a license. If I were a mom of one of those girls, I'd sue him.
