Bonnie Says! Oh No! Miss USA Contestants Look Like Porn Stars, Not Pageant Queens!

Tue, May 11, 2010 6:14pm EDT by 11 Comments

Not only do they all look like porn stars, but they also aspire to be underwear models!

Remember when pageant contestants wanted to cure cancer and be the first female president? Well, that was so last century! This year’s crop of contenders for the pageant title ALL dream of being Victoria’s Secret Angels, reveals pagant president Paula Shugart.

“They’re not looking to bring peace to the world,” Shugart explained to Today Show co-host Matt Lauer on May 11. That’s why it was not just OK, but it actually made sense to have the 51 contestants photographed in bust- and leg-revealing, bras, panties, fish-net stockings and open men’s shirts, while laying on beds and chaise lounges, for their pageant promo shot.

The “come hither” black and white photos make the contestants look more like members of Tiger Woods‘ harem than the young ladies who supposedly combine beauty and brains we’re used to seeing in pageants.

Geez, remember when it was a big deal that bikinis were introduced into the formerly one-piece swimsuit competition?

Girls in bikinis appear chaste next to this year’s crop of potential Miss USAs, who all also are adorned in masses of long wild hair, heavy smoky make-up and pouty lipstick.

Pageant owner Donald Trump seems to feel that the sexed-up look is necessary for the contestants if the pageant is going to compete for ratings on TV. “If you look at Miss America, it’s now off network television,” Donald told New York’s Daily News.

So, BFFs — wanting to be a beautiful brain surgeon who happens to also look good in elbow-length gloves and a ball gown just isn’t enough to compete in a beauty pageant today.

You also have to be willing to crouch on a bed on all fours in Madonna-style soft-core porn pics.

Pageant spokeswoman Lark-Marie Anton is right when she says “these photos definitely break the stereotype of what a pageant girl looks like.”

“There used to be an idea that pageants … were about upstanding young women with a future and it wasn’t at all surprising to find a woman of stature in public life, in government or corporate America who had a pagent tucked into her resumé,” says Pamela Paul, author of Pornified. “There was an idea that pageant contestants could be well-rounded woman with ambition. This ad campaign chucks aside any other qualifications than they look good in a bra.”

I couldn’t agree more, Pamela. On the Miss Universe/Miss USA website for the 51 contestants, brief bios list their ages, hometowns and nothing else. They do, however, all get star ratings. Interestingly, the top-rated contestant today is Miss Louisiana, Sara Brooks, a 21-year-old from Lafayette who happens to be the most clothed of all of the 51 contenders. Maybe people do like having pageant beauty leave a little something to the imagination and just maybe they would like them to be brain surgeons as well as beauties after all.

I find this ridiculous. The america pageantry program is about scholar and achievement where as the USA is about beauty and fitness. Miss California USA 2012, extremely intelligent woman. Look her up. Miss USA Nana Meiwether is a graduate from UCLA. Miss USA/Universe Olivia Culpo is currently attending a university in boston and ALL USA members are about community service and project sunshine. Just because some people cant handle being offered money for porn and have very little morals doesn’t mean that todays queens strive for their highest. Im sure you’ve never entered either pageant and giving a raw guess to what you may so eagerly think of these young ladies. Way to go, glad your doing so well looking at the news papers instead of meeting these ladies.

On the photos and criticism, I would say that the young women just want to be and feel beautiful. Let them be women. It’s natural for a woman to want to feel beautiful and desired by men. On world peace, I bet no man would start a war if each man got regular sex with a beautiful woman. I think I can almost guarantee that. lol Think about it: wake up and first thought to be start a war or have sex with your beautiful wife?…easy decision. We just don’t have enough beautiful women to go around to each and every man yet. We’re still waiting for that day. Meanwhile, the beautiful women are having more daughters according to studies. If you want to pacify men, it starts with the women. Women have the power.

I definitely think these contestants all aspire to promote “world piece”…just doesn’t have the same noble goal as it once did. And I bet there will be no more beautiful brain surgeons in this group…”oma does the O. R.” will be the new “medical” listing on their resume.

I know a few contestants personally. They are wonderful woman and by far no porn stars. If this was just the average model or celebrity and not pageant girls people would not say a word. They are grown women and the USA system has made the choice to make the pageant more sexy for ratings, not the contestants. So the blame should be on Trump not the ladies. People can sit and judge but it usually comes from over opinionated and jealous reactions. It is always easy to sit behind a computer screen and trash talk about people.
These girls are not stupid bimbos like people portray them to be. There is more to a pageants than what you see and the focus on beauty is just the part that people want on TV. It takes a great deal of intelligence, confidence, and poise to get as far as they have. To characterize them without knowing them is just juvenile.

From looking at these pictures, it’s sad to realize all but maybe one girl hasn’t had breast implants. American beauty should come from within, not from a doctor’s office. The Miss USA pageant has become a joke. Donald Trump is a-okay with the miss USA pageants wanting nothing more than to become objects of affection since he’s a sleaze ball. Our country is becoming a joke. Beautiful women are getting plastic surgery at 20 because natural beauty isn’t enough, almost half our population or more is obese, and young girls think becoming an adult is all about becoming princesses and finding prince charming.. what a joke.

Nice! I am a guy and I will still not watch this, especially since porn is free on the internet if I want to look at a brainless chick. Sex it up to sell it, when all else fails. Pathetic, glad my sister isn’t in it, I would fell ashamed having her parade around like a piece of meat.

Miss USA is a picture that maybe not only little girls admire and follow. We don’t have to be astonished about the youth behaving superficially when the contest looks like a porn party. Personality is important and it is not modern to fall back in the old fashioned belief a woman has to be like a toy. Why don’t they just wear something i.e. a mother would allow her daughter to wear in public? Wear something that shows you like to be respected! Nobody is to blame for being dumb and it is not about scientifical questions (my opinion). Also and maybe more important should be i.e. to watch the attitude of the contestants concerning kindness, to prove that enviousness is not what they give as an example. They give an example – if they want it or not – and it is sad when this example leads in a direction nobody (no woman) wants to get back. The position of the women in the society: You really work on it ladies! Miss USA – please think what you do there and let us be proud of you!

I think the Miss USA people are smart to make their brand modern and relevant. Being stuck in the past is why Miss America can’t get a TV network to air the show.
