In the wake of Miss Teen USA UmaSofia Srivastava's resignation, the runner-up, Miss Teen New York Stephanie Skinner, has made a bold decision to relinquish any claim to the crown as well. Skinner, 19, cited integrity and character as paramount in light of recent events surrounding the pageant's organization. This move comes amidst a series of resignations, including that of Noelia Voigt, raising concerns about the internal workings and culture within the Miss USA and Miss Teen USA organizations.

Stephanie Skinner, speaking to People Magazine, expressed the difficulty of her decision, stating that while becoming Miss Teen USA was a dream, she refuses to compromise her principles. Skinner, a rising junior at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, emphasized that her professional goals take precedence over pageant titles.

In a statement, Skinner asserted, "I believe one thing I will never give up is my character," emphasizing that recent events prompted her to prioritize integrity over personal aspirations. She affirmed that while pursuing the crown was a significant goal, maintaining authenticity and ethical standards outweighs any title.

Miss Teen USA has not issued a response to Skinner's decision as of yet.

The recent spate of resignations began with UmaSofia Srivastava's announcement on Instagram, where she explained that her personal values no longer aligned with the organization's direction. This was followed by Noelia Voigt's resignation just two days later, citing personal reasons and mental health concerns.

These developments have cast a shadow over the Miss USA contest, which has faced its fair share of controversies in recent years. Allegations of preferential treatment and internal issues within the organization have persisted, prompting scrutiny and calls for reform. Former titleholder Crystle Stewart's resignation as president, alongside her husband Max Sebrechts' departure amid sexual harassment allegations, further underscore the challenges facing the pageant world.

While the organization has refuted some of these allegations, the resignations and ongoing controversies raise questions about transparency, accountability, and the overall culture within the Miss USA and Miss Teen USA organizations.
