Sheena Monnin, a Pennsylvania beauty queen who resigned after saying Miss USA is rigged, was ordered to pay the pageant organization $5 MILLION in damages.
Monnin, who is "shocked" by the ruling, tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that the "most logical course" would be to contest it, but she's considering her options.
In any case, her claims didn't pan out, and she's paying the price.
Arbitrator Theodore Katz says Monnin's allegations that finalists had been selected in advance were false, harmful and malicious and cost the pageant millions.
Specifically, a $5 million fee from a potential 2013 sponsor.
