Subject: WI and MN titleholders are actually super successful!! Especially in entertainment and modeling. Always disspointed when their titleholders don't get the love they deserve just because they aren't sash states!

[> Subject: Thereís also tons of other costs! Donald Trump crested the franchise system and all it does is bleed the contestants and directors abroad and internationally dry. Everyone from the Trump era has got to go! Prize packages and purpose should be the focus, this is how it would be more relevant and popular outside of 3 countries, but until Paula Shugart and all of those greedy and incompetent people are gone, itíll never change, only die more.

[> [> [> Subject: It's a Trump era policy. Before him, state directors and national directors owned their pageants - then he came in and franchised the Universe name. Before him, MUO made money from advertisers...He did this at his Mar A Largo resort - every year his staff would have to reapply for their jobs - it keeps your employees in fear of losing their jobs and also doesn't allow for them to accrue benefits. It's fantastic for the business owner - but bad for the employee. Same thing with franchises - except the more girls you get, or the more popular the pageant is, the more sponsors you get, and because MUO only cares about money, but understand it can't only have 10 girls compete, there's a sliding scale of franchise fee costs, but typically only a high fee will win.
