I know that National board wants some telegenic girls, but looking at pictures of the contestants, I can see that many states didn't place high value on looks. Kathleen is pretty but not a cut above others. Also winners like Destiny, or Kathleen will alienate smart and sophisticated contestants. I am sure MD winners are always good enough for the local McDonalds!
Regardless, I wish Kathleen luck! It is a hell of a pressure to be judged on National TV and allow cameras zoom on your barely covered private parts!

Maryland is known for not following there own rules a teen had her phone every day and finally got caught on finals day before the picnic but
She was still able to compete I realize the code of conduct they sign that no phone is on the first line yet of course the rules were bent according to the offender what does that say to the girls who work hard and follow the signed rules. Rules , contracts literally mean nothing

I am sick and tired of the way Sherry treats the ED's, contestants, and volunteers at Miss MD. Making girls cry all last year during orientation and during the week is completely unacceptable. This organization is about support and mentorship, not tearing someone down because you like feeling important. All ED's and board members of the locals are volunteers who give their important time to contribute to the organization and sherry treats them like pure garbage. Over the years EDs have wanted to walk away because of sherry but stayed due to the dedication to the girls. Sherry is rude, mean, and honestly a terrible person inside and out. There needs to be new blood within the MissMD board to make more girls want to come back.

#1 the results cannot have been read backwards! The card clearly says fourth runner up- (name),third runner up-(name), etc., #2 the commotion backstage was because Susan forgot to call the top 5 to line up center stage before she started calling out their ranking, #3 the surprised act by Sherry deserves an academy award, Unfair as it is, Sherry and the board got the Miss Maryland that was handpicked long before the first night of prelims. Hannah sold Kathleen to the board and will personally prep her for Miss America! It's all very sad and disgusting but in the end they think Kathleen's striking look will get her far in the competition but I'd be surprised if they let that lazy talent act anywhere near the television cameras!! If the board is going to handpick girls despite their qualifications they should have auditions for the job and skip the actual pageant

Kathleen Masek's talent was not among the strongest of the top 10. Her answer was the worst of the final five. Her dress was just not attractive and didn't flatter her gorgeous figure. Beautiful swimsuit body, but not a prelim winner. So I'm just scratching my head as to how she accumulated the most points to win the pageant. I truly apologize to Kathleen and her family and I hate to be a buzzkill on what must be a great moment for them, but I have to ask if this win really reflects positively on our program or on the judges' ability to do their jobs. She was not the strongest contestant on that stage tonight, not even close.

Those of you in the audience tonight who thought Kathleen was #1... please, let me know what you saw, that I didn't see! I am all ears.

I know many of you will write off this post as "just another negative Maryland fan" but I'm just confused.

I feel bad for Kathleen, like give the poor girl her moment to shine. I would feel upstaged if I were in her shoes.

Some of the "vets" who compete year after year just aren't that pretty. Girls like Pokey, Lewis, Gallagher...even some of the teen's aren't that stunning facially. Why would we not want a pretty girl on t.v. to rep MD? Pageants aren't for everyone and in the end are about beauty. All the girls are kind and accomplished but some have that "look"

Keep using education to defend your argument or to make you feel better about yourself and your child losing. It's a fucking BEAUTY PAGEANT for crying out loud. Get it through your thick skulls. If you keep competing and haven't placed, move on! Why continue to make excuses for yourself or bring others down? MD has really stepped up their game in the last few years with choosing girls who actually look the part...... and frankly it's about time. Stop lying to yourself by saying beauty doesn't count. I'm sorry you feel shitty because you'll never be as beautiful as Hannah, Destiny, or Kathleen. The other forevers were beautiful too but not in a STRIKING way and that probably pisses you off. I believe they will all get very far in their lives. The ones that don't have their degrees have their own life experiences or personal reasons why they didn't get one. Some simply can't afford one. Who are you to look down on them for not having a degree? That doesn't take anything away from their intelliigence and at least they are not in student loan debt. Some of the most brilliant people in the world don't have their degrees because they caught on that having a degree is not the only way to success. Give me a break with this education nonsense and do something useful with your life, instead of working an average job and living an average, safe life.

It would be wonderful to have the Teen title come home to Maryland, but other girls have better platforms, are more personable and relatable, and let's be honest, other girls competing for Teen were more beautiful. A National level winner will need to be the whole package, talent alone is not going to win MOT.

I wonder if those posting about how Maryland fans always complain were actually at the pageant? It's one thing when a few Negative Nancy's complain on this board every year but something completely different when 80-90% of an audience are in complete shock at the results and even the judges appear confused. Yes Kathleen is a beautiful young woman but that was her only strong qualification. It was my understanding that MAO was more about the total package and.not just about a pretty face and hot body! I don't agree with bashing girls and name calling but in this situation something is definitely fishy!!! 4 out of 5 girls in the top were total packages and the one not nearly as qualified as the others wins.....very suspicious!!!

I am so upset to see the bashing on this website. We need to be uplifting all the girls who are competing and support our Miss MD! I have personally had the chance to get to know Destiny and she is a remarkable young woman! We all need to be empathetic towards her story, especially if you personally have not faced a financial or abusive hardship yourself. Who are we to judge her! We ALL have made mistakes, but its what we learn from those situations that define us! Destiny has been an amazing Miss Maryland and has personally inspired me! This constant battle between our state will not bring us together. In order to be a better organization, we need to stop hating and start supporting! It has been dragged out enough and I challenge each of you who continues to bring hate to this program to think about it if you were in those shoes and how you would feel. BE the GOOD in the world and be the better person. Your reflection of another is actually a reflection of yourself!

Hannah is a beautiful young lady, and it is very sad that she feels the need to alter her photos to make herself thinner. This altering is unrealistic and creates a false ideal for other young ladies, and is not something a role model should be doing.

We're not perfect but something is definitely working to have girls be successful 5 years in a row at Miss America. Hopefully we're on the up-and-up and we'll bring that National crown home to Maryland soon. This is similar to the 1998-2003 era where we had 3 top 5's, a top 20, prelim talent, prelim swimsuit, NFT.

Once again, we do not have a Teen in the Top 15! MD is picking judges that who do NOT know who to send to Nationals. MD judging is not in sync with what the MOA Teen National Competition looks for in winners or at least to have a girl place in top 15. The selection of judges and their instructions to pick a winner needs to be reviewed. Maybe it's even time our Teens compete separately from the Miss competition.

Hasn't anyone noticed that Stephanie's career goal and the reigning Miss America are the same. Sending her to Miss America would not be smart. How would she differentiate herself from Betty? She wouldn't! They wouldn't crown another Miss America 2 years in a row that both want to sing on Broadway. Just don't see that happening. They would want someone with other career goals to make the pageant seem more diverse with girls that have all different types of aspirations in life. Stephanie would have made a great Miss MD, but we want the Miss America crown brought back to our state. Hence Hannah's win which was well deserved in her own right. Ultimately, because of Betty's win last year Stephanie couldn't be our winner this year.

Another question: some posts emphasize interview skills for "miss" but the people who watch Miss America are mostly "blue color" and lower to middle middle class people who care more about how a girl looks in a swim suit and whether her talent is interesting to watch. Platforms and brains are just "cherries on top", but I doubt that it is contestanrs's intellect that brings money to this organization. Some girls are pretty and smart but not telegenic or just don't have a TV - worthy talent. Most likely they are never going to win. National organization makes money from commercial and I am sure that their audience would be significantly reduced if they preferred interview skills to talent and looks.

Destiny Clark was simply a breath of fresh air. After years of seeing the "same old, same old" Pageant Patty girls compete, it was so great to see a hip, modern girl take the title. I hope she has paved the way for a new, diverse range of Maryland women to come through and compete. If we're lucky, Destiny would even stick around for a few years - I imagine she could really drum up support for the State program in areas that are currently underserved by our State board.

BEST OF LUCK Destiny!!!

You have to be kidding me. There are still people bitching about last year?! If you are in the pageant again this year, I feel sorry for you. Just drop out and get a grip over your life you winey little babies. Grow the f*** up, this isn't high school anymore. You may have your degrees but you certainly have the real world intelligence of a kindergartener. I would suggest getting some real help if you are still hung up on this. Destiny has been a phenomenal Miss MD and has been such an inspiration. It's a shame the shit she has to go through that probably took away from the amazing year she should have had. No one deserves to go through that. Yet she has still somehow managed to shine. That's what real queens do. I can't believe how ignorant some of you are, to say we need a more educated Miss MD with a college background, then to say she broke all the rules while all the other girls worked soooo hard?! Yeah hard running their mouths, making up lies to portray her being worse than satan, and being sore losers! She worked just as hard, she was also new to the system and has been through so much. She may have not been to college yet but that is because of her background and as a result, she had to put college on hold. She is an extremely intelligent girl though, an eloquent speaker and is über talented. I watched her story on YouTube the other day and it had me in tears. I could see her pain but I don't know how she was able to tell it so eloquently without breaking down. Also Berklee is not a little deal. So what if what they say is true and she did break rules, I'm assuming it may have been because she did not know them. I did not see one person reach out to her. You all should be supporting one another, not tearing eachother down just because someone is different. Destiny was amazing at Miss America and represented our state with so much grace and class. The one thing I do agree with is that I could see the miss America board seeing all the drama that happened last year and strictly not allowing her to place, with the odds that any of be true (which it obviously wasn't). Or, they may have even done it to spare her any further pain or drama because I'm sure that the same sore losers would have continued to try and tarnish her name and tear her down even on a national level. I mean big organizations like that have to protect their brand and if that was the case, you really should be ashamed of yourselves because you costed your state a chance. I don't think it actually had anything to do with her performance. I was there for all three nights and she was on point for all of them. She could have easily won and totally had her game face on. We're proud of you Destiny and in some way happy you didn't win because we got to have you be an influential Miss Maryland. Thank you for your resilience. To be honest, there are only about 5 contestants this year that deserve the crown based off the nastiness displayed last year. I really hope the right girl wins.

Well you can take your "high standards" and little rules and shove em up your ass. I feel sorry for you in your life if you think this is what is important. You must be miserable. You would not survive one day dealing what with Destiny had to deal with. Poor girl did not have anyone and has dealt with little to no support from a teenager. I wonder what you would have done if you had been dealt the same hand. Destiny was a teacher for many years and taught little children and music. She did make a difference, she did have a real JOB. In fact she had several. She was not just a dancer, that was a side thing for her that she did for a little while. Being a club dancer is no different from being a cheerleader like Jade is now. That does not diminish who she is. She is attending Berklee in the fall and I think that says a lot. She may not have been able to attend college then but she is now. Stop being a hater and let it go. The year is almost over for crying out loud and your still bitchin. F*** you and this pompous organization. I will never let my daughter compete in this crap again. Your all a bunch of wannabes who have had to compete yr after yr because maybe, your just not as good as you thought.

I think that both Lokey and Lewis stand out more. Gallagher is a little too heavy for the pageant of this scale. Her talent is not that strong and I don't know if she has done anything impressive with her platform. She has pretty big shoes to fill.

Who is in charge of the posts on the fb page? I'm seeing some serious "exaggerated truths". Although that's been the theme of this year for a few states including this one. There are quite a few on the page but one recently about the md contestant performing in front of 10,000 people. Pretty sure the contestants that didn't make it through to the finals didn't get to perform and barely got more than their face flashed on tv for 3 seconds. They only performed on the off days in front of different judges and a pretty much empty audience. ( we were there) Am I missing something? These lies are going to make for a disappointed next contestant this year if they think that's what it's really like. Doesn't anyone moderate this stuff?

This is a reminder to contestants and their executive directors about prior contractual commitments in the Miss MD contract. Below is paraphrasing from the contract that was required to be signed by all contestants:

Within the 3 months before my participation in my first local or state competition and since then, I have not authorized any person, firm or corporation to use my name, photo, or picture in connection with an endorsement to advertise any commercial product.

In other words, if you have a modeling contract, you may not compete at Miss MD.

It was stated here by some posters that Destiny is pretty, photogenic and talented. However, no one ever said anything good about the group of amazing ladies who cared about the reputation of this organization but who also stood by their prinicipals. Yes, the rumors spread out and affected the reputation of the Miss Maryland oraganization, but it could have been avoided if someone from the board had stepped forward, when the exchange was especially heated, and said "each one of you can make it one day, it just has to be a different day" and so forth. Instead, "Team Destiny" was announcing how unfit for the job all the other contestants were, critisizing their bodies, talents, choice of outfits and so on. Let's stop throwing stones and salvage what can be salvaged. I think that all the local title holders need some warm reassurance that they were not "Inferior" to the winner, who gave them many reasons to be resentful and angry. ( And maybe the board should reconsider the amount of pressure they put on contestants, to make it fair for people with all personality types).
