Andrea or Emely should win hands down. But since this is USVI, they'll end up crowning Racquel or Talisha. Sad.

Actually i just woke up from a nightmare and found the hashtag related to the controversy. She actually has NO ties whatsoever to the USVI except for a 6month residency. The rest of the winners have all participated in multiple state and national pageants before USVI. and the rest of the top 5 has no ties to the USVI either. The ND is from Haiti and apparently had worked with the Miss FL USA pageant at some point, pageant were the 3 winners (or atleast 2) have participared in. More tea coming hahah

Look at the pageant history of winner Andrea Piecuch and 1st RU Destani Huffman-Jefferson.

Andrea: Non-Finalist at Miss Texas USA 2012, Non-Finalist at Miss Florida USA 2018, Non-Finalist at Miss Virginia USA 2019, 3rd RU at Miss Utah USA 2019. Of note is that Andrea competed at Florida USA in December 2017, Virginia USA in November 2018, Utah USA in January 2019, and wins US Virgin Islands in August 2019. That's four moves in 20 months, with only two months between Virginia and Utah. She didn't even meet the new minimum three months when competing in Utah.

Destani: Non-Finalist at Miss North Carolina USA 2014, Top 13 at Miss Virginia USA 2016, 2nd RU at Miss District of Columbia USA 2018, 1st RU at Miss District of Columbia 2019. Miss District of Columbia USA 2019 was held in December 2018.

Andrea is claiming on Instagram that she moved many times due to her work as a flight attendant and sales representative: https://www.instagram.com/p/B1Z08BQDwZ3/

Destani is claiming on Instagram that she has family ties to US Virgin Islands: https://www.instagram.com/p/B1fEGzNnU64/

With Ireland, Puerto Rico, and US Virgin Islands all having been won by Miss USA state contestants, we may be seeing more Miss USA state contestants showing up at Miss Universe national competitions.

Diferrence is Fig and Madison have blood and cultural relationship with those countries and constantly mentioned them before competition in their motherlands, what worries me more than the Top 5 having zero relationship with the USVI is the fact that apparently the ND also has zero relationship with the USVI and has had all these girls in pageants in the US. Could be a possible conflict of interest, perhaps a woman just getting some of her former queens to participate in this edition.

The "US" in US Virgin Islands stands for "United States". The territory is formally known "Virgin Islands of the United States". It should not be surprising that Americans are also competing in this pageant. Contestants criss cross the continental U.S. (and even Puerto Rico) all the time to compete in state pageants. This should not be a big deal.

Not that simple, and Islander's allegations are not about just 5 americans competing of the island, theres a whole lot of points ect.

Also not because a territory is part of a country doesnt meant we are the same culture, language ect. I can assure you there will be an outroar in Puerto Rico is Jennifer Thomson of Massachusetts that has no rican blood after participating in 5 Miss USA state pageants who doesn't know a lick of Spanish or the history of PR. Same as other islands.

The difference with PR is that their national org has stricter residency requirements if you do not have familial ties to the island. Madison was able to skirt them because of her mother being a native. She followed the rules and earned her title.

The gripe about USVI is that it felt a bit more like the state-hopping because you can just say your family has property on the islands and use that to get in. It is much easier for girls on the mainland to hop over to the Caribbean territories rather than the Pacific US territories simply because of distance. A flight from Los Angeles to USVI is around 400-500USD versus LA to Guam or American Samoa which is easily $1500. With the lax state and country residency requirements, some crowns seem like it's pay-to-play for the crown and those who can take advantage of it will. More $$$ in MUO's pockets.

I suppose each franchise holder have their own rules and regulations on how to qualify for their respective pageant. But as far as Miss Universe is concerned and as far as I know, unless they changed the rules, at the very least, a contestant have to have at minimum, a 6-month residency in the country she is representing. She need not necessarily be a citizen although again, some national pageants may have a citizen-only rule. So I guess Miss USVI just have this residency rule. This may also set a precedent that girls from other countries like Venezuela may country hop....and other nearby Caribbean territories like Turks & Caicos and the British Virgin Islands may lower their qualifications to the just minimal 6 month rule and try to attract more competitive girls from the US and other neighboring Latin American countries (like even Puerto Rico...if you can't win MUPR, hop over to British Virgin Islands where it's less competitive).

...which is a useless endeavor. If you can't even win MUPR or Miss USA, what's your chance of winning Miss Universe by joining as Miss US Virgin Islands with no sash factor? I mean, why even bother? This gamble applies only to Miss World, where there are no rules on who gets picked as winner. But what's the value in winning Miss World? Nothing, right?

The sash factor has gone down significantly since IMG took over, and to be honest Puerto Rico hasn't exactly had big sash factor in ages; it's actually not such a crazy endeavor. Sure you won't have huge sash factor but it could be easier to actually get to Miss Universe from USVI than the Miss USA circuit; she just had to approach the pageant director which was connected to one of the former state pageants you participated in and go against 10 girls. To get to Miss USA you have to win state pageants (they have usually atleast 20-30 candidates) and then the national crown against 50 other girls; so definitely it is easier to win USVI.

So sure, you won't have the sash factor BUT if your chances go up if you are really interesting as a candidate; maybe she felt she didn't need sash factor to do well in the Miss Universe.

So its not that useless of an endeavor, Curacao has ZERO sash factor yet Akisha was interesting enough on her own to take a spot in the Americas so hey she's not that crazy

MUPR is a powerhouse in Miss Universe. There's no way we can downplay that - with 5 Miss Universe crowns, there's no way that MUPR can be ignored in Miss Universe. Sure, MUPR does not always make it to Top 10, but that's probably about as far as it could go with particular candidates, even with the pull of sash factor.

So what if winning Miss U.S. British Virgin Islands is easier than winning Miss USA? There is practically no fame in being the former, and there's no pot of gold at the end of that rainbow. On the other hand, if you are truly and devastatingly beautiful, why not take your chances with Miss USA, and be taken more seriously at Miss Universe?

In other words, girls have to do what they must to achieve their dreams. If joining Miss US Virgin Islands instead of Miss USA is what it would take, and the rules do not disqualify them, they should go for it!
