(NEW YORK DAILY NEWS) Miss Pennsylvania will likely not be getting the Miss Congeniality award.
Sheena Monnin resigned from the Miss USA pageant Monday, one day after it aired on television, charging that the beauty competition is fixed and calling it "trashy" and "fraudulent.”
Miss USA organizers say the dark-haired beauty tossed in her crown because she opposed the organization's decision to allow transgender contestants.

“I have decided to resign my position as Miss Pennsylvania USA 2012,” she wrote on Facebook on Monday. “Effective immediately I have voluntarily, completely, and utterly removed myself from the Miss Universe Organization.”
