[> Subject: Really? I have to say, I don't think it was fair that an employee/good friend of a USA state director was allowed to participate. Especially since this is Universe/USA/Teen USA board where the director frequents and has a strong presence, I felt like it gave "gaj" an unfair advantage over the others, who are just typical fans. Something to consider in the future to ensure the credibility of this contest.

Always going to be the haters. This is much deserved and anyone who thinks it's not is just sour grapes. The fact that he has so many former friends, friends who have been around pageants forever, etc. only proves that! Jason, you are adored by those who know you! xoxo

Stop with this BS and self-entitlement. gaj only won because some old and desperate for attention beauty queens who never posted before were brought in to vote. The results were FALSIFIED to make gaj win it.

[> [> [> [> [> Subject: Its as transparent as it can get, without letting everyone know who voted for who. And I dont think thats very fair. If your IP address can be traced on this message board by a specific date, which was before Mr. USB even started, and if you were a contributing member of the facebook group, you were eligible to vote. I think thats pretty fair.

Canada probably does best in that *department* of all the countries. as some Americans are able to mention Ontario, Quebec and BC. Other provinces are a bit of a challenge. I wonder if any of the regulars could mention 13 jurisdictions of Canada without looking it up.

But to your point, I'm very familiar with Canadian geography, but I admit I'm kind of a geography nerd. And truthfully I think it would be rare to find a Canadian who could name all 50 states without looking them up!
