EXCLUSIVE: Second Miss USA Contestant says she overheard list of Top 5 finalists before live announcement

Another Miss USA contestant has come forward saying she heard Miss Florida Karina Brez reveal the list of finalists backstage before the pageant’s Top 15 were even announced.

“I saw Florida backstage and she was very, very flustered and upset. I thought it might be because she didn’t make the top 15 cut, but at that point she was able to reveal to me at least four of the five names who went on to be the top girls,” the contestant, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told FOXNews.com exclusively. “She couldn’t remember the fifth because she was so upset. Several of the girls then started hearing through the grapevine about a list; a lot of people were upset.”

Miss Pennsylvania Sheena Monnin first accused the Donald Trump-owned Miss USA pageant of rigging the competition last week. Monnin claimed Brez said she had seen a list of the top five finalists hours before last Sunday’s live telecast even started.

“Apparently the morning of June 3rd [Brez] saw a folder lying open to a page that said ‘FINAL SHOW Telecast, June 3, 2012′ and she saw the places for Top 5 already filled in,” Monnin wrote on her Facebook page. “After the Top 16 were called and we were standing backstage she hesitantly said to me and another contestant that she knew who the Top 5 were. I said ‘who do you think they will be?’ She said that she didn’t ‘think’ she ‘knew’ because she saw the list that morning. She relayed whose names were on the list. Then we agreed to wait and see if that was indeed the Top 5 called that night. After it was indeed the Top 5 I knew the show must be rigged.”

    I guess she now knows how the other Republican contenders felt during the primaries.

    As a young man, I would have never taken one of these young ladies home to my apartment.

    Wyatt, are you ever forced to watch Survivor? Here’s whats freaken amazing to me. They always get rid of the women with the biggest breasts first. Which leads me to the conclusion they are not picking your average male to compete in these challenges.

    Well Duh!
    These shows have always been fixed.
    The top 5/10/15 what ever they do are mostly from the most populated states — for ratings. For someone who lives in Ohio and Miss Ohio is not a finalist, a lot of people turn it off or away from the show.
    It has always been about ratings and never who should win.

    Brad, since you wouldn’t have taken one of these women back to your apartment I assume that means you used to drive a van or a Cadillac? ;)

    Toaster, Brother, can you imagine the dialogue? You want to put that thing where? Oh no, that’s not going to happen. But could you get me an iced water with a lemon squeezed in it.

    …the question is….WHO CARES? It’s a beauty contest. Everyone has different views on what is or is not beautiful. It’s like trying to decide which flower is the best or which car is the coolest.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that.

    And before the ladies get all twisted, I am not comparing women to cars….except Kate Upton, a souped up Ferrari for sure….
