Subject: Although each served as excellent titleholders throughout their year, I do not think they were the best candidate to represent USA that year. Yes, each fairly won the Miss USA title; however, I think all of us can agree - it wasnít a convincing or overwhelming win. If you look at previous titleholders, we can see certain qualities and factors that would convince us that the correct person was crowned; these qualities could include beauty and styling, charisma, engaging personality, intellect and articulation, sense of humor, etc. Miss USA doesnít need to be the best in every category, but needs a certain aspect of her best self that would attract the attention of the international judges and make them want to propel her into the final evening. If you canít make yourself stand out in the crowd, then youíre bound to be lost in it.

In reply to: No Name 's message, "Does anyone have any idea why Barbara Peterson, Kim Pressler, Shauntay Hinton and Rima Fakih did not place in Miss Universe. Did they not deserve it or were politics involved?" on 23:02:56 11/03/19 Sun

[> Subject: The one exclusion that shocked me was Rima Fakih in 2010. I wasn't on her bandwagon but she had a fit body and a gorgeous red Reem Acra gown not to mention she brought a lot of media attention MUO's way that year. In addition, 2010 was the "Middle Eastern" year for MUO: First Arab-American Miss USA, Farouk Shami's CHI sponsorship and Dar Be Dar Swimwear sponsorship, which was spawned from the plight the designer faced when she was in Iran. To me, all signs pointed to Rima winning (!!!) if not making the Top 15 at the very least. I'm glad she didn't win but thought she deserved a spot in the quarterfinals if not higher considering how abysmal the Top 5 that year was.
