Subject: Why had no MUO girl won Miss America before?

There has been five former MAO contestants (maybe even more than that if you count Brooke Lee who didnít win Miss Hawaii but went on to win Miss USA and Miss Universe).

But, no MUO girl (at least a contestant that has competed at Miss Teen USA or Miss USA) ever won Miss America. I believe the closest is Jennifer DuPont in Miss America 2005.

It is almost 70 years. Why is that the case? Does MAO have something against MUO?

I feel that MUO has been very kind to MAO, a former Miss America was invited to join Teen USA last year AND three MAO girls made the top 10 at USA 2019 (2 even made top 5).

What is your opinion on this?

[> Subject: I don't know all the reasoning behind this, but I think MAO has always looked down on MUO. MAO has prided itself on being all about scholarships and service, not just lately but going way back, and I think they felt that MUO was more about shallow surface beauty. Recently it's a bit different, especially as MUO has moved more in the direction of stories and achievements, and as you mentioned, they have been more welcoming to MAO. But this whole issue says a lot about MAO: in my opinion, they have always taken themselves way too seriously, and this is their biggest downfall. I hope MUO doesn't fall into the same trap.

[> [> Subject: Exactly! Maybe MAO is a little full of themselves (even more so now). MUO girls are beautiful and accomplished as well. Itís a shame and pity that no former MUO contestant ever won Miss America. Quite hard to realize that given that Miss USA has been established since 1952! And MUO is so generous to MAO (more so recently). Five former MAO girls winning Miss USA (some who competed in MAO state pageants as well). Invited Nia Franklin to talk shows, invited a former to judge Miss Teen USA, and how many MAO girls that made top 5 at USA recently??

[> Subject: The closest was Jennifer dupont who competed way too early at miss usa. But at miss america, she was absolutely perfection. How she lost to that hideous Beaty eyed monster from Alamaba is beyond me. Wait, it's miss america lol.

[> Subject: Iíve always thought that it had to do with the age limit! Since MAO has a lower age limit than MUO, women drawn to both would be more likely to start with MAO, then shift focus to MUO to maximize their chances & time.

[> [> Subject: I have always thought the same and think this is the main reason. Though a secondary reason is that there are some greedy and Miss USA disliking board members and obviously their input is important. The younger age at America is the main reason for less crossovers though (USA to MAO).
