What Happened At Miss North Dakota USA?

In my previous blog post, I wrote that I had expected Codi Miller to win the Miss North Dakota USA pageant that was held in Fargo on November 19th & 20th.  I personally did not want Codi to win because I wished that she would stop competing in pageants.  Winning would lead to her competing in the Miss USA pageant.

When I saw the Miss North Dakota USA pageant results on Sunday November 20th, I couldn’t believe it.  The winner of Miss North Dakota USA, and the winner of Miss North Dakota Teen, were not representative of North Dakota at all.  I was very, very angry about the pageant results.

I wondered who the judges were.  Before and after the pageant, I looked on the Miss North Dakota USA website, and I could not find anywhere who the judges were.  I had already read that the pageant organizer and producer, Future Productions, was based in Minneapolis.  Were the judges from Minneapolis too?  The ideology, culture, and values of the large, liberal city of Minneapolis are completely different than the culture and values in North Dakota which is 95% rural, farming, and ranching, with the one exception being Fargo.

I do not like that the Miss North Dakota USA pageant is held in Fargo.  I do not like that the organizers and producers of the pageant are from Minneapolis.  I do not like that the names and short biographies of the pageant judges are not given.

In order to not be sued for libel, I can not write what I think happened.  Other people have already been sued for libel and defamation by Miss USA for making specific accusations which they were not able to prove.  I will give the following example, with quotes from the Wikipedia website, regarding former Miss Pennsylvania USA Sheena Monnin:

“Monnin became a household name a few years ago when she was sued by Donald Trump for US$5 million for calling the “Ms. USA pagent” rigged. She alleged that the Miss Universe Organization had predetermined the results of the Miss USA 2012 pageant.”

“In June 2012, Ms. Monnin said that another contestant, Karina Brez (as Miss Florida USA) saw the names of the top five on a telecast paper in the same order in which they were later called out. Brez later said she had made her comment jokingly. Brez went on to then say that she made the whole thing up, changing her story more than once.  Monnin stepped down when what she said were those same contestants were named to the Top 5. Immediately following Monnin’s resignation, The Trump Organization publicly denied Monnin’s allegations. Following television appearances by Donald Trump and an interview with his attorney, Monnin appeared on the Today Show to give an interview with Ann Curry explaining her position.

“On the night of the Miss USA awards, Monnin made a Facebook post calling the pageant “fraudulent”, “lacking in morals”, “inconsistent”, and “in many ways trashy”.  Monnin refused to renounce her claims.”

I can not write allegations that I can not prove.

I believe that many people in North Dakota do not agree with the Miss North Dakota USA pageant results.  Maybe many North Dakotans do not like that the pageant is held in Fargo, and that the the names and short biographies of the pageant judges have not been listed, especially where the judges are from.

If you are unhappy with the Miss North Dakota USA pageant, do not participate in it, do not sponsor it, do not cooperate with it.

Who Judged Miss North Dakota USA?

The Miss North Dakota USA pageant was held in Fargo, North Dakota on November 19th & 20th.  I found out about a week prior to this year’s pageant, that a girl I like, Codi Miller, was going to be a pageant contestant.  I thought to myself, “Oh great, she will probably win.  I wish that she would stop.  I wish that she would be just plain Codi.  If she wins, she won’t stop.  Oh well, maybe she will eventually get this out of her system.”

I wrote a blog post, contemplating why women compete in beauty pageants.  I was concerned that trying to be a beauty queen and a princess takes young women out of reality and normalcy, and will inevitably make them unable to deal with real life.  After I thought about the women journalists Diane Sawyer and Joanne Nosuchinsky who had won beauty pageants, and later went on to have successful careers, I conceded that pageants might help some women.  Maybe some women just wanted to use the pageants as a stepping stone in their career.

I then looked up and read more about the Miss North Dakota USA pageant: the organizers, the history, past winners, frequently asked questions & answers, the Miss USA Pageant Contestant Contract.  I wrote two more blog posts about the Miss North Dakota USA pageant, making observations, comments, and suggestions.

It was not until late in the day on Friday, November 18th, that all of the pageant contestants were listed on the Miss North Dakota USA website.  The listing just showed the contestants’ first name, first letter of last name, one photograph, and their sponsors.  I would have liked to have seen the last name of the contestants, and a short biography, at least where they were from.

The girl that I liked, Codi, I saw her latest pageant photograph, and I thought that she would win.  As I already said, I didn’t want her to win, I wished that she would stop.  Codi was Miss North Dakota Teen in 2009, and Miss Rodeo North Dakota in 2014.  I had already seen from previous pageant photographs that she has perfect calves, perfect thighs, bottom, stomach, breasts, shoulders, arms, neck, all perfect.  Her latest photograph shows that she looks even better now.  I showed other people the Miss North Dakota USA pageant contestants’ photographs, and they all said, “Oh wow, look at her.”, pointing out Codi, they didn’t have anything to say about the other contestants.  I thought that there was no contest.  I thought that it was embarrassingly uneven.

When I finally saw the Miss North Dakota USA Pageant winners on late Sunday November 20,  I said, “What the Fuck!  God Dammit!  What the Fuck!”

I am going to say what everybody in North Dakota outside of Fargo is thinking!  First of all, “What the Fuck!”  Second, “What the Fuck happened!”  Third, “Why the Fuck are two Latinas Miss North Dakota USA, and Miss North Dakota Teen?  Who the Fuck were the God Damn judges?”

North Dakota is about 92% White.  About 95% of the land area in North Dakota is farming and ranch land occupied by white farmers.  The entire history of North Dakota is about ranching and farming.  North Dakota is made up of hundreds of small towns where people farm, ranch, herd cattle, and ride horses.  No young lady represents North Dakota more than Codi Miller, who grew up on a third generation North Dakota farm out in the badlands.  Going to a rural school with only forty kids in the entire school.  Riding horses and rounding up cattle.  Competing in High School rodeo.

God Damn!  Do Latinas from the city of Fargo represent North Dakota?  No, they don’t represent North Dakota at all!

I had already read that the company Future Productions based in Minneapolis, organizes and produces the Miss North Dakota USA pageant.  Minneapolis is a very liberal, large city.  Minneapolis has a completely different ideology, culture, and values than 95% of rural North Dakota, with the exception being Fargo.  Where did the judges come from?  Did the judges come from Fargo or Minneapolis?

Both before and after the pageant, I looked on the Miss North Dakota USA website, and I could not find any mention of who the judges were.  I could not find out who the judges were anywhere.  Shouldn’t this be plainly stated?  Why aren’t the judges identified, with some information about where they are from, and their occupations?

I have looked at many of Codi Miller’s photographs from various sources, and I have looked at many of the pageant winner’s photographs from various sources. I believe that Codi Miller was the best looking, most attractive, most feminine, most perfectly proportioned, most dignified contestant, and the best representation of North Dakota.  I think that there are many, many North Dakotans that are wondering why Codi did not win.

In order to not be sued for libel, I can not explain why I think that Codi did not win.

In my next blog post, I will plead with North Dakotans to de-fund, not sponsor, not cooperate with, and not participate in Miss North Dakota USA.
