[> Subject: This pageant had so much potential over the years. And it always ends in failure. When there is this much change, it may not recover in the USA. Its too unstable

[> Subject: As much as I enjoy the Miss USA/TEEN USA and Miss Universe pageants I'd love to own the Miss World America franchise, but at the moment money and time are not my friend, lol, but it would be so rewarding I think to run be the director, even though Miss World isn't that big here in the United States, it would be nice to cross overs and the such. I think there could be plenty of crossovers between USA/TEEN USA/MAO to a well run Miss World USA/America.

[> Subject: Cannot blame her. Being a pageant director has got to be the worst job in the world. Hardly make any $$, then you have to deal with the sore losers who complain it was fixed (because them losing is everybody's fault except their own), then deal with state directors who dont want to pay or say it is rigged, then having to deal with a titleholder all year round who will keep breaking the contract or posting photos with non-sponsors, and then having your girl bomb at internationals getting nasty backlash that you suck as a director. I think she made the best choice.

[> Subject: I think IMG should acquire the franchise rights and send the first runner-up, as was done in the 80s and early 90s. With the direction IMG is taking Miss Universe, it should fit right in with Miss World standards. In recent years, IMG enjoys a story, which fits right in with MWO Beauty with a Purpose.

[> [> Subject: Handpicking a winner or at least finalists is the last thing national directors have to worry. Julia's personality is more of a problem.... I would not be surprised if E. Safrit gave up because of that. How many times did the US franchisee change since the days of GuyRex? 8 or 9 times? I would not recommend anyone touching MW franchise for as long as Julia heads the MW org.

[> [> Subject: Miss America had great first runner ups for about a 7 year period recently. But the reality miss america girls are horrible looking. Its not a chance in hell any miss america girl would do well at miss world. I am aware Rebecca revels competed after her nude video scandal.

[> Subject: She stepped down because MWO didn't give her free reign to run her business and that she and her co-director mother had spent so much money, time and resources for zero profit. When an international pageant organization changes its US franchiser once every two years, it must be a really awful organization to work with.

[> [> Subject: I heard the exact same. She told a mutual friend that they wholeheartedly expected to run the org for several years to come but MWO is run like an absolute mess and the Safrit are all smart, successful business people. She said it wasn't a smart investment with the way things are currently run, plus Miss World apparently lost all of its USA television contracts.

Shame as they really did do so much for it.
