Scandal Pictures of the Miss 2010 Contestants

Miss USA scandal pictures search string captured the top listing in the Google Hot Trends today, after reported that there has been considerable controversy over the promotional photos for Miss USA contestants. All the photos authorized by the pageant. The Miss USA pageant airs tonight. 

The Miss Universe Organization has released a set of black-and-white pictures of the Miss USA 2010 contestants that are very sexy and causing a bit of an uproar.  According to TMZ, traditionalist fans are making “tons of calls” complaining about how “provocative” the photos of the Miss USA 2010 contestants are.

The Miss Universe Organization defends the photos, noting that the pictures are “tasteful and very sexy.”  Tasteful the photos might be, but it is most likely the “very sexy” that many find so objectionable.  Pageant representatives told TMZ: “You can have brains and be smart and still be sexy.”  Many would agree that intelligence is a form of beauty and be quite attractive in a sexy sort of way.

The black-and-white Miss USA 2010 pictures may simply be a pushback from the political correctness –where intellect has been championed over pulchritude — that seems to have been pervasive in the beauty pageant sphere for the past decade or so.  There have been various movements to discontinue certain portions of the contests, including the bikini contests, because some believed that it objectified women, placing too high a value on the sexuality and the physical beauty of the contestants.
Of course, the sexy Miss USA 2010 photos may simply be a very smart and timely promotion by the Miss Universe Organization, which is owned by Donald Trump, a man who knows more than a little about promotion.

The upcoming Miss USA 2010 Pageant will be shown on NBC May 16 at 7 p.m. EST.  The sexy pictures of the contestants can be seen and rated at

Review the selected images to give you impression what is all about. Click on the thumbnail to enlarge a pic.

So, do you really think that these pictures are inappropriate? Is not Miss USA pageant not about the beauty? I personally do not see anything wrong in “the big picture” and in any of these photos in particular. Beautiful ladies and professionally made shots!

So, as you see, there are no clickable pictures in the post. My picture host decided that the pics are inappropriate for the public gallery storage, so just thumbs could be seen. So, the media perception is clear. I am still not convinced, however....
