Miss Earth Australia 2015

Dayanna Grageda was crowned Miss Earth Australia 2015 on September 26 Novotel Manly Pacific in Manly, New South Wales. Grageda made Australian pageant history by becoming the first woman to be crowned Miss Earth Australia twice. Yes, that's right! Twice. She won last year, but she was dethroned by the former organizer, Roselyn Singh who accused Grageda of not fulfilling her duties and of failing to sign and return required legal documents - which Grageda claimed as false. She was later replaced by her third runner-up, Nadine Roberts.  The controversy prompted Carousel Productions, the owners of Miss Earth, to further investigate the matter and discovered that Singh had unfairly treated Grageda. Singh subsequently lost the franchise which now belongs to new management consisting of former Misses Earth Australia, Kelly Louise Maguire and Renera Thompson, and Peter Sereno, fashionista, pageant coach, and owner of Dear Pageant Girl. Grageda tried for the title again this yea

Miss America 2016 comes from Georgia

     And your new Miss America is … Miss Georgia, Betty Cantrell , who thinks that Tom Brady definitely cheated during last season’s DeflateGate scandal!      Yes, this really was relevant during the pageant. Cantrell, a 21-year-old student at Mercer University, made it all the way to the Top 7 and the famously awkward Q&A portion of the evening. Although contestants always prep for current events questions, she had quite the bizarre query from judge/country singer Brett Eldredge. [ Vanessa Williams returns to Miss America, gets public apology from CEO for being forced to resign ]      “New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was suspended for his part in the so-called ‘DeflateGate’ scandal, then reinstated by the courts,” Eldredge read off a card. “Legalities aside, did Tom Brady cheat?”      Cantrell stalled for time as she asked him to repeat it. Then she had 20 seconds to answer.”Did he cheat? Um, that’s a really good question. I’m not sure,” she said. “I thi
