Sheena Monnin Insists Miss USA is Rigged ... Based on Body Language

by at . Comments

Sheena Monnin insists the Miss USA pageant is rigged, despite what Donald Trump says, and that's why she resigned as Miss Pennsylvania USA.

Monnin, who claimed the list of top five Miss USA contestants she was told before the show perfectly matched the top five, alleges a conspiracy.

Pageant co-owner Trump says he will sue for defamation, claiming the voting is closely monitored ... and no one cares who wins anyway.

Monnin is doubling down on her claim, though ... citing psychology.

"It's too coincidental for someone to be able to call out in order the top five," she said on the Today show Friday. "I know what I heard, and there is no doubt in my mind that the contestant is serious when she laid out what she saw."

Sheena Monnin claims Miss Florida - who now says she was kidding - told her she saw a list of the top five. No way was it a joke, Miss PA claims.

"I have many years of psychological training," says Monnin. "I know when someone is scared and serious. Her body language was serious."

Two points here:

  1. Miss USA officials now say Miss Florida only had one name right, meaning she missed either runner-up Audrey Bolte or champ Olivia Culpo.
  2. Monnin's "many years of psychological training" consists of a master's degree from the University of Phoenix. Just saying.

How dare she? She is just a poor sport who didn't win and now it's sad that she's taking the spotlight from the girl who did win. Shame on her for being bitter and jealous. I'm sorry your University of Phoenix Master's degree doesn't make you a genius in Psychology. You are however, crazy. Shame on her for being such a whiny crybaby for not making the top anything. Perhaps, the judges just saw her true colors before she even showed them to the world.

The problem is proof. She only has the word of Ms. Florida. So a she said she said he said. No real proof equals lawsuit.

Angela, I suspect she believes she can do more the pageant world if she resigns than if she stays in it. Truth and transparency are her goals--knowing her personally I can assure you she is a very selfless person. She does things for "a higher purpose." I think that one of the reasons our culture is in trouble is that fewer and fewer people are in service to a higher purpose.

Still, Monnin shouldn't have resigned and she should have continued with her state title. After trying out for 7 or 8 years for the national title, and then resigns, this proves that she's selfish and only cares about winning nationally.

And if you look at the interview, the question is "How do you know she (Miss Florida) wasn't joking?" Doesn't take an advanced degree in psychology to determine this.

I have known Sheena for several years and in addition to having undergraduate and graduate degrees in psychology, she is a serious student of personality theory and personality typologies. She is not only adept at assessing personality, she is pursuing a PhD in Theology and is one of the kindest and most sincere people I have had a chance to get to know.
