MISS MARYLAND TALK BOARD
Problems or questions? Email me @ marylandmoderator08@gmail.com

Subject: I would be happy to overlook all her past transgressions because nobody's perfect and we all make occasional mistakes. However, I can't forget the pressure from the board to be on time with everything, to comply with all the rules, and to have a clean social media image, as well as a clean past. Destiny broke all these rules and disregarded the requirements on numerous occasions.

How come we should forget that it is not OK to have double standards? Even if those judges and the board thought that Destiny could be top five material at Nationals, they had no right to expect us to mindlessly worship her as a role model, while she was behind of almost every contestant in almost every area. She is very talented young lady and she can do very well in a showbiz but she did tainted MAO. The group of people who embellished her papers and twisted her story to make her look like a struggling victim who overcame the adversities, should remember about the FINAL JUDGEMENT...

Subject: Its time to switch focus. I used to be angry with Destiny but then I have realized that it wasn't her "fault" that she won. We were all there to do our best. We were all, or at least many of us, hoping to win. (Why else would we do pageants?) How is it her fault that she was chosen? It was judges' call and I am angry with them. Yes, Destiny is very pretty, photogenic and she has a unique talent. But the judges didn't think that the four points of Miss America's crown were as important as showbusiness qualities. (click)

Now all the pageant critics/haters can say that platforms, education, and impeccable background are bogus requirements. Now more people would think that pageant girls and their efforts to make this world a better place are all fake and MAO is just another business where one is trying to find the most "marketable" winner. I am dissapointed with judges and their principals and that's why I am not coming back. At the same time, as a member of Miss Maryland family and a local title holder, I feel that we all should support Destiny, no matter how much we disagree with her behavior during the pageant week or no matter how much criticism she deserves. It's done. We should be supportive because she represents our state, just as we do, on a local level.

Subject: Freedom of speech is our constitutional right. Why all the posts that imply that Sherri and the board basically pick their winners are being removed? Even if it is no true, people, who make such statements, sound like some kind of insiders who know something. I, personally, have been a judge in a few different pageants and I know that directors almost always give judges very descriptive instructions on who they want as a winner, basically narrowing it down to one or two contestants.

I just want the girls, who keep coming back, to know that if they did't make it to top five on their first or on their second attempt, the chances that they are going to win someday are less than fifty/fifty, unless they can come up with something like a car deal for the organization or something else that makes them "valuable".

I'm sorry but can we talk about our Miss Maryland and how she looks like a 90s pageant girl in every photo and interview I've seen!! All else aside, one of the points on the crown is style and this poor girl doesn't have any!! Can someone help her with her wardrobe and for God's sake, get the girl a curling iron or some hot rollers... Her hair is a hot mess!!!

It is obvious from this talk board that many are passionate about pageant programs and what they have to offer. I applaud the titleholder here who does not lay blame on Destiny that she won. I'll cast my opinion aside on Destiny and join this titlholder in supporting our state representative - good or bad. I also disagree with the statement of blaming the judges. The judges can only go with what is in front of them and what they are charged to do. In order to fix the problem at hand, you have to tear down the structure and rebuild it based upon the founding principals. Otherwise, this situation will compound itself. I put forth that what's done, is done. Focus by current titleholders and the state board should be on rebuilding the organization beginning with a focus on the four points of the crown. The importance of a platform is waning for the Misses and practically non existent for the teens. Without a focus on the platform, all the titleholders who do not win states have not gotten out of the process what they should - personal development. In fact, this lack of focus on the four points is creating an atmosphere of acceptance on the very principals we do not want to aspire to - greed, outward beauty and false pretense. I charge our current local titleholders with the job of change. Start with your crown and show what it truly means to serve. If each one of you did this, it would completely overshadow all that has occurred with Destiny. Instead it would show that Maryland MAO takes their titleholder jobs seriously. Best of luck ladies.

I am re-watching Miss USA and I am just blown away by how prepared and confident Miss Maryland USA is. It is obvious that their team knows what they're doing. Maryland has placed at Miss USA each of the last five years!! Meanwhile Maryland Teen USA consistently places at Miss Teen USA (7 of the last 10 years).

Miss Maryland MAO people just can't keep using the "small state" excuse. It's obvious that pageants are popular in Maryland and there is a strong contestant base. They just need to be RECRUITED and PREPARED. Only 2 of the last 10 Miss Marylands have placed at Miss America and only 2 of the last 10 teens have placed. This is not a track record to be proud of!!!

Every pageant person in Maryland needs to make it a goal to see Miss Maryland WIN Miss America. The energy is there but the effort isn't.

No. Your just a hater who would rather make up false facts instead of doing your homework. If you did your research you would see that Berklee does indeed have a 35% acceptance rate, that it is the fourth top music school in the country and that you have to audition in person to be considered. She applied almost a year before her local, auditioned and got accepted for a BA program in which she deferred to attend next Fall. Her acceptance letter is even on Facebook. It appalls me how insensitive many of you are as to why Destiny chose to attend college later. For those that know her full story, we know she is a real survivor. When she lost her father, she had nothing and had to work multiple jobs to keep a roof over her head. She did not have any family or parental support (as the rest of you have) to help her through. She got to where she is on her own! I think she really has what it takes to be an inspiring role model and a wonderful titleholder! I know she will do very well at Miss America. Her past tells me on its own that she can handle and overcome anything (including your childish mockery)! I really feel sorry for you all. It's such a shame that you would stoop this low... especially when barely knowing anything about someone.

Maybe you are the ones who are focusing on the wrong things. Maybe you can't stand the fact that Destiny is sickly talented and pretty much a natural at this while you have had to work so hard for many years. Well from the outsider looking in, it may appear that way but i am sure she has her work cut out for her in other things she is weaker in. Instead of focusing on how to bring her down, maybe you should focus on how you can better yourself for next year! Props to you for your hard work and dedication, but if your going to dish it out I sure hope you can take it.

Oh and have we forgotten that she GOT ACCEPTED INTO BERKLEE and deferred for a year just for Miss MD?! You want to talk about educational achievements, well this is an amazing one. Berklee is the fourth top music school in the nation and has a 34% acceptance rate.

You purposely focus on the menial negative things because that is all you have. But Destiny actually has a lot going for her and she has had more curveballs thrown her way than probably most of you combined (with no support system!) and still wound up on top. There is a reason why she shined on that stage and won the judges. They saw something special that many of you lack the ability to even comprehend. You can continue to hate all you want but remember good always prevails. We both know that none of this is right. The more you hold grudges and dwell on the negative the more it will only come back to bite you in the long run. Let it go...

To get your facts straight, there was never any cash involved you dimwit. The clubs she USED to dance at are respectable clubs and do not have their dancers strip or perform erotic acts. They are not even allowed to do that, they would lose their club. There are trashy and classy gogo dancers out there and Destiny was not one of the trashy ones. Unfortunately the term "gogo" dancing has gotten a bad rep because of the trashy dancers who turn it into something else instead of doing what they are supposed to do. Many have mixed up the term gogo dancer with stripping. It is not the same thing!! Gogo dancing is actually an art and popular in the EDM scene. The purpose of gogo dancing is to add to the visual of the club and amp up the crowd. When you walk into a night club, every one wants to see hot girls dancing. Having classy dancers in sexy outfits behind the DJ provides that vegas like experience. Thats all it is, there isn't anything else behind it. Just like when we switch the channel to Miss America, most of us just want to see hot girls in bikinis!

The new Miss Maryland is one of the strongest in years!!! Might be as strong as the "good old days" of Lewis/Harrison. Yes, sorry everyone in Alleghany County & Hagerstown but your girls were blown out of the water. We warned you that there is much more to maryland than your little corner of the state and now you know.

Hope you all have a delicious recipe for crow because you're going to be needing it in September. Destiny is going to do great things in AC.

Considering how many people were commenting (not necessarily on this site), I would say that there were several factors that made many of us doubt the integrity of MMO. As for wasting time on this site - the opponents are doing exactly the same, besides, its not about Destiny anymore, it's about trust and double standards, which are universal dilemmas.

Yes, Destiny is pretty but did she stand out as a beauty? NO!!!! There were quite a few gorgeous girls this year. Yes, we read critical remarks on this board every year but I have never seen contestants turning away from the winner and not willing to congratulate her. Contestants see more than judges do and Destiny's inability to be liked by people around her is disturbing.
From the very beginning, ever since she was 3 hours late for orientation, she acted like she was above the rules. Did she know that she was going to win no matter what? I though she had a chance at top 10 but winning - no way! Her swim suit body was trim but not atheletic, her belly was sticking out and her moves in a swim suit were closer to the moves of a pole dancer than a contestant at once respectable pageant. Her song was something original, I have to give it to her, but her voice wasn't anything that catches one's attention. Her "on-stage questions" answers showed that she is simply not ready to do it on a National television. And what about scholarship and service? Since when it can be overlooked? How is this sistem different from Miss USA then? O yes, MAO doesn't have mighty sponsors like Miss USA does. After Miss Maryland like Destiny, Miss Maryland organisation will have a hard time gaining respect of a larger community and securing some real sponsors with real money.

I was googling a few of the contestants and saw that one is also on the website for competing Miss Maryland USA in October of 2015, and while I was on the site, there was another contestant on the site as well. What happens to their titles if they compete in another organization? Are they even allowed to compete in another organization while holding a Miss Maryland local title?
