    BOOO the Miss Universe Organization is far superior to Miss America! Check out the Miss USA on NBC April 19th 2009!!! It’s the one owned by Donald Trump and the three girls who win Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss Teen USA live in New York for a year and a full scholarship to The New York Film Academy! The Miss America organization offers nothing.
