Miss USA Scandal
Pictures: Yet another round of racy photos?
than a week before the start of Miss USA 201 and we are already
hearing the rumors about yet another round of scandal pictures
and racy controversy. It's truly amazing how almost every year
on Miss USA beauty pageant there are some "scandal pictures",
"racy photos", or just some "Miss USA controversy" going around.
And we have to admit, the Miss USA scandal pictures in the past
had much more merit than the Miss USA 2010.
So what are the "Miss USA scandal
pictures" you've been hearing about? Sorry to disappoint, but
unless you are Amish, this particular "controversy" doesn't have
a leg to stand on. What we and everyone else is talking about
are the promotional photos for Miss USA contestants, which you
can see by going to the official website of the Miss USA 2010
(click here for the "scandal photos"). No, the Miss USA 2010
contestants are not naked, taking part in adult films or simply
partying hard while camera present. Miss Kansas and her "scandal
photos", one of which you can see here, seems to get the
thickest end of it, but almost every other Miss USA 2010
contestant has a picture similar to the one above. Are theses
scandal photos of the Miss USA 2010 contestants? Not in our
opinion, especially when considering that we judge the Miss USA
contestants by their physical appearance first and foremost. And
let's face it, you show this photo to any male claiming it's
racy, the answer will always be "You call this racy? Let
me show you what's racy...", while pulling out their cell phone.
Anyway, how would this "Picture scandal"
affect the wagering on the Miss USA 2010? Bookmakers, as well as
the pageant organizers, stand only to benefit from such (fake)
controversy. Wagering on the winner of Miss USA, as well as
other big beauty pageants, has long been a fun time for the
bettors, taking a break from the sporting events to just place a
small wager on which beauty will win and these "Miss USA scandal
pictures" headlines will only increase the number of folks
actually interested in the pageant.
Odds on the Miss USA 2010 have changed
none since we last reported, although the scandal pictures could
drive higher number of bettors and change the odds simply on
volume. As it stands right now, Miss California, Nicole Michele
Johnson, is still the favorite to win Miss USA 2010 with odds
8/1 as posted by the online sportsbook
Bodog Sports, followed by Miss
Oklahoma (Morgan Woolard) and Miss Nebraska (Belinda Wright),
both with odds 11/1. The odds on Miss Kansas, Bethany Gerber,
were actually improved by the sandal photos controversy and are
now at 12/1 to win Miss USA 2010.
