FormlessOne: Iceberg659: FTFA: Monnin points to a Miss USA contract clause giving top pageant officials the power to pick the top five finalists and the winner, but a company official calls that a catch-all that's never been used.Catch-all for what?In case the normal methodologies cannot be performed, that rule provides a last resort to ensure that finalists and a winner can be selected. It's never been used.What we see here is a lesson in reading comprehension on the part of Monnin, a lesson that just cost her five million bucks. She saw that in the contract, misconstrued it as "hey, they're just pickin' em - it's fixed!", and then ran her friggin' mouth off in the media, screwing the pageant's reputation to the tune of $5M+. The arbitrator realized her mistake, realized she was an idiot, and made her liable for the $5M she cost the pageant organization.I see nothing untoward or unfair here. The takeaway, of course, is "be damned sure of your facts before you call someone a liar and a cheat in front of the whole world."
